Storyline

A teenage girl, just starting junior high and living in a modern corporate community, is accidentally contaminated by a secret chemical product of The Plant. She acquires mysterious abilities that allow her to change her shape, move objects with her mind, and zap people and objects with small electrical charges. The owners of The Plant continually seek to find out which of the local kids has been contaminated so they can experiment on her, but their employees are less than competent and the search is comedic and futile.

It was Alright....
7 August 2005 | by DHMagierXeroSee all my reviews

Yeah. I remember this one... It was OK, like it was an interesting idea but,... They just didn't do it very well. The actress for Alex Mack was perfect but, the others could've been a lot better. The plot lines were OK for the time, but they probably should've made it more interesting. Like, having her fight crime or go for revenge against the chemical plant. And her powers were a bit unrealistic. I don't think she'd've gotten Physic stuff. The water-puddle makes sense because the Chemical Waste caused the powers, but the electric fingernails didn't make a lot of sense. All in all, it was the kind of show you watched for either one of two reasons: 1) Everything else was on rerun and you thought "Why Not?". or 2) The actress for Alex Mack. But, it was pretty good considering the time it was made in. I'd recommend buying it on DVD and watching it if the mood strikes.
