Storyline

Matthew Gore has an imaginary friend. Or at least it seems. However, his friend is real, an alien called Chocky, who travels the universe using the minds of children, without the need of a starship. Matthews' parents, worried by their son, try to discover what has happened, because they don't understand the prodigious intelligence and knowledge that Matthew has suddenly acquired.

The best TV show of my childhood
15 December 2003 | by ChockysSee all my reviews

I have not read the book, and I took much years in knowledge that existed, but the TV series is simply a masterpiece. The idea that the alien at issue projects her mind to travel by the universe (It seems to me that thus it traveled to the Earth) is innovator, and years later, It conserves Its enchantment. The cast of actors is skillful (in special the child and starring Andrew Ellams). I've got much TV series what love in my life, but this is for me the number one of the number one. I saw It when I was 7 years old, and I couldn't never forget It. "Chocky", the series, would have to show It in TV during years and years. Nothing equal exist.
