A renegade human prototype Cybergirl crash-lands on Earth to explore the humanity on which she is partly modelled. She takes refuge with fourteen-year-old Jackson Campbell and his bemused father Hugh, who welcome into their family this young stranger with such astonishing powers. Desperate to experience life in the glorious metropolis of River City, Cybergirl assumes a human identity as Jackson's cousin Ashley, and so begins her exploration of the challenges and excitement of life as a teenage girl.
I recently watched this cool a sci-fi/ adventure series on DVD and I loved it. Cybergirl is a blue haired and blue suit wearing female cyborg from another planet. She is the "Cyber Replicant Human Prototype 6000", the only one of her model to be built. Not only are her powers above that of the earlier cyborgs, she has a much wider emotional capacity than her predecessors. Her emotional capacity was considered a flaw and she was going to be decommissioned. So she fled her home planet to explore the race she was modeled on, humans.
Cybergirl is pursued by two Cyber Replicant bounty hunters who are 3000 models named Xanda and Isaac and their mission is to destroy her. Cybergirl lands on Earth near the fictional city of River City, which was modeled on and filmed in Brisbane. Cybergirl's powers include super-human strength and super-human speed. She also has a power called "technopathy" (although this term wasn't mentioned in the show) the ability to interface directly with electronic devices and computers and control them with her mind. She is also able to shape-shift i.e. physically change her appearance from that of the blue-haired, blue suit wearing Cybergirl into the less conspicuous, blonde-haired Ashley, and can alter her clothing at will.
Just outside of River City, Cybergirl meets teenage Jackson Campbell and his father Hugh, who take her in. She adopts the name Cybergirl as her superheroine identity. Jackson calls her "Cy". She later uses her shapshifting powers to change herself into the blonde haired Ashley, in which she poses as Jackson's cousin and Hugh's niece. The only other person besides Hugh and Jackson to know her secret is Kat, Jackson's friend and neighbour.
Cybergirl becomes the superhero of River City. She is pursued not only by Xanda and Isaac but also by a powerful and corrupt software entrepreneur named Rhyss. She is well loved by the populace of River City and is approved by Mayor Buxton, whose twin daughters Emerald and Sapphire are big fans of the superheroine.
If you like seeing action and humor in show for family audiences then I certainly recommend this show.
