Out of This World aired from September 1987 until May 1991 in first run syndication.
Donna Garland ( Donna Pescow) ran a private school for gifted children in the town of Marlowe, near Carmel, California, but none was more gifted than her daughter Evie ( Mauren Flannigan). Evie was starting to develop powers she had inherited from her father Troy, an extraterrestrial visitor from the planet Antareus who had married her mother and then been called back to his home planet shortly after her birth. Evie's powers included the ability to stop time ( freezing people in mid-sentence was a favorite trick) and to materialize things simply by willing them into existence. Whenever she had problems dealing with her powers she could communicate with her dad ( voice of Burt Reynolds)through a special cube that functioned as an intersteller phone. The only other person who knew about Troy was Donna's brother , Beano ( Joe Alaskey), the rotund owner of " Beano's Diet Clinic." Anyone else who happened to see Evie's remarkable powers at work simply thought that she-or they-were crazy.
After the first season there were numerous changes. The focus of the series shifted from the use of Evie's powers to the everyday problems of high school life, with her best friend Lindsay( Christina Nigra) and her boyfriend Chris ( Steve Burton) moving up from occasional to regular players. Troy's voice which only Evie could hear during the first season , was audible to everyone starting in the fall of 1988. The third season saw Donna defeating Kyle ( Doug McClure) for mayor, and susequently appointing him police chief and the fourth season brought Donna's brother Mick ( Tom Nolan), a former rock musician back to Marlowe. Also seen during the last season were Jeffrey ( Tony Crane), the new hunk in school ( Chris was a student at Marlowe Community College) and Peter ( Peter Pitofsky), a klutzy alien who was working as a waiter at the Goodie Goodie, the rstaurant where Evie and all her friends hung out.
In the final original episode televised in the spring of 1991, Eve celebrated her 18th birthday and her dad, Troy surprised her by visiting using a matter transference unit ( it only showed an outline of him with light going around the outline). The episode ended with Donna getting trapped in the unit and being taken to Antaries and Troy being stranded on Earth. Because the series was canceled, there was no resolution.
