Out Of This World | TV Series


Maureen Flannigan as Evie in Out Of This World.

Out Of This World was a silly scifi NBC comedy show which ran between September, 1987 through May, 1991.  The stories focused around a teenage girl, Evie (Maureen Flannigan) raised by her mom Donna (I loved her mom, played by Donna Pescow of Saturday Night Fever fame).

Where was her dad? Well, he was an alien who lived far, far away. Her dad, Troy spoke to her via a special communicator cube. Evie finds out she has special supernatural powers when she turns 13 and shares her experiences and concerns with her dad in daily conversations with him over the colorful cube.

I adored Out of this World as a child. In fact Maureen Flanagan was the first celebrity I ever wrote a fan letter to.

Never got a response ;o(

LOVED this show. Stopping time like she does would still be the super power I would pick. I hate to admit it, but I {cough} still {cough} dream about it when I'm sitting in traffic.

Nostalgia! I loved this show as a kid. I always wanted her power to stop time by just putting her fingers together. I just remembered that I had that same shirt as a kid, except it had Mickey Mouse heads on it instead of hearts. :)

I used to watch this show religiously. I thought she was so pretty and wanted to be her.

But even back then, I knew her boyfriend looked like a douchebag.
