Wow, can you believe that we’re already about half-way through the challenge already? Time flies when you’re talking nostalgia. If you haven’t done so yet, please drop by the page and check out the other great bloggers participating in the challenge and show em some love. So today’s post is going to be about a TV show so let’s see how many of you out there remember this one and how many will be saying “what?”

O is for “Out of This World”. This was one of those kind of cheesy, syndicated shows that probably didn’t have much of a budget to speak of. It centered on Evie, a teenage girl who has discovered that she is half alien. She had the power to freeze time and would talk to her father through a special device he left behind when he returned home. Here’s the wiki page for a more detailed rundown on the show and its characters.

Now, what kid wouldn’t want to be able to freeze time during a test or to just appear somewhere at a second’s notice so you can sleep in? Add a mother who becomes mayor of the town and a hot boyfriend and I’d say Evie had it pretty darn good. The writing wasn’t always the best, but it was just plain fun entertainment you weren’t supposed to think too much about.

So did you watch this as a kid? If not, what were some of the shows you did watch back in the day? Have an “O” of your own? Comment below and let’s chat about it…
