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.

Trivia

Louan Gideon, who played corrupt corporate businesswoman Danielle Atron, was a close friend to U.S. President Donald Trump's ex-wife. Rumor had it at the time that Gideon based her character's ruthlessness and falsely friendly demeanor on Trump himself, who was a rich businessman in the 1990's. See more »

A Deeper Meaning or am I just strange?
20 September 1998 | by Liberty-5See all my reviews

I always saw this show as just another stupid kid's show aimed at pre-pubescents and people in their early teens. One night, about a week before the finale of the series, something seemed to dawn on me, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Was this another stupid kid's show or did this have a deeper meaning? Allow me to elaborate. Look at the role of Paradise Valley Chemical in this community, it seems to be controlling everything, that much is obvious because it is a corporate community, but more importantly, look at how Paradise Valley Chemical was portrayed. It was portrayed as an evil, mega corporation who's motto was:"Progress at Any Cost." It was headed by a cold-hearted executive named Danielle Atron who would stop at nothing to find the kid who was doused in the chemical. Look at Vince (The former ruthless chief of Security) Look at Lars (The rat faced researcher who was Danielle's right hand man) Look at Dave (The slow witted truck driver who was a mere cog) Look at the logo of the chemical plant, a sinister Black gear-shape. Was this show trying to say something about Capitalism? Was this show trying to show what could happen if Corporations put profit and progress before humanity? (Maybe they already do to some extent) I remember when I first had this thought, I thought I was crazy, maybe I am. I sure would love to know if anyone else ever had this thought. (Bye the way, I'm not someone who worships Senator Mccarthy and sees Red Everywhere)
