Storyline

Ten year-old Aggie Travers is expelled from school after several incidents involving other students. She's very bright but her behavioral problems lead the school to determine she is a danger to the other students. Aggie's problem is that she has telekinetic powers but doesn't know how to control them. Her parents decide to hire a full time caregiver, Karen Ross, who it turns out has powers similar to Aggie's. Karen gives Aggie a crystal to help her focus her powers but when government agents arrive looking for her, Aggie's parents must decide what is in her best interest. Written by garykmcd

Telekinetic Balderdash
25 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is some potential here, but it never really works. This is yet another story about a child (or children) with telekinetic power. The girl is a little "Carrie" who can give bloody noses to the bullies on the playground, and though she is the one attacked, the school chooses to expel her (probably not a bad move, though from a fairness perspective it's not really right). The parents hire a nanny who uses her own powers to disable the competition for the job. She is hooked up with a group from a place called Sanctuary, and it looks like her job is to help the young woman handle her powers. Meanwhile, there is a group whose purpose is to root out these exceptional children and have them deprogrammed (sort of lobotomized). The parents are happy as clams that their daughter is doing so well (they know nothing of her powers) and grow to trust the young nanny. An elderly woman who runs a bookstore is the protectors of these young people, and she is hunted down by the aforementioned organization. It is decided at some point that this girl must be brought to the safety of Sanctuary. There are some really unbelievable things that happen toward the end which I won't ruin. It has so much potential, but offers nothing new. One thing to think about. Why do the people with the special powers wear those crystal necklaces where everyone can see them. It certainly makes their identification easy. Not a very good episode.
