Another amazing 80's kids show
6 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The last time i saw this i was 8 years old, now at thirty i've just seen the first series in it's entirety for the first time in22 years and was blown way.

I remember very little from childhood only a floaty alien thing that talked to a kid. I remember it was eerie o, well i'm not sure what i remember, on a rare occasion I still have in-jokes with my sister to this day.

What struck me was how innovative it was for it's time, an alien entity from another galaxy comes to Earth to find a soul about a better alternative fuel source. Although it finds many things about Earth primitive, it finds humans highly intelligent and uses young Matthew, who is 12, to steer into the direction of science and influence him into discovering this new fuel source through Chocky.

Unfortunately i never read the books but the complexity of the show as someone else said it unique. And for me the boy playing Matthew (Andrew Ellams), stole the show. These days kids shows are full of wannabes who have drama lessons, whereas in the old days they plucked kids off the street who were right for the part and Andrew has it in Bunches. Especially in Ep.2 when Chocky offends him when making fun of him about how primitive cars are, Matthew has a full on tantrum, a complete explosive rage and this kids taking the lead really pulls it off! The show also stars James Hazeldine (of TV's London's Burning) as the father.

If you're a kid of the 80's you'll love it too, seeing Atari's, old school life, and the 80's life, they heyday of our childhood! This series excels and is worth buying on DVD if it's out (I think i did see it once in the UK). I can't say enough good things about it.
