Goofs

Despite being "made of plastic, microchips here and there", the robot and her costume grew from season to season to accommodate the actress. However, in the season 4 episode "School Monitor", there was an explanation given by the father, who put in a special chip that enabled her to grow to avoid suspicion from friends and neighbors why she never grew and remained the same age.

Nick at Nite.. where are you??
22 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I never saw the show when it was originally on. I seemed to catch most 80's shows when they would go into reruns in the early 90's.

I absolutely got hooked on this show every day after school in reruns.

I am a computer geek and I got a kick out of the "Technology" behind it.

The neighbors were your typical annoying neighbors which made them great. The daughter with the crush on Jamie, the annoying parents always coming over. At least they knocked... or did they?

I haven't seen this on TV in a while, I keep hoping Nick would pick it up along with Alf and Punky Brewster. But alas, not yet. Maybe some day they'll get the point.

DVD would be better, but I would never get the time to sit down and watch all 96 episodes (So close to the milestone 100!) so I'd settle for Re-Syndication.
