Out Of This World is an American fantasy sitcom about a teenage girl who is half alien, which gives her unique supernatural powers. It first aired in syndication from September 17, 1987 and ended on May 25, 1991. During its first season, the series was originally part of NBC's Prime Time Begins at 7:30 campaign, in which the network's owned-and-operated stations would run first-run sitcoms in the 7:30-8 pm time slot to counterprogram competing stations' game shows, sitcom reruns and other offerings. Out of This World was rotated with the original series Marblehead Manor and She's the Sheriff, a syndicated revival of the 1983 sitcom We Got It Made, and a television adaptation of the play You Can't Take It With You. NBC ended the experiment after the 1987-88 season due to the low ratings put up by three of the series, with Out of This World being one of the two that was renewed. After its first season the series was largely moved to weekend time slots, where it remained until its cancellation following the fourth season.

Out of This World Audience Reviews

Fluentiama Perfect cast and a good story
Noutions Good movie, but best of all time? Hardly . . .
Gutsycurene Fanciful, disturbing, and wildly original, it announces the arrival of a fresh, bold voice in American cinema.
StyleSk8r At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
insomniac_rod I was a very happy kid when I watched "Out of this World" for many reasons. First, it was a very entertaining show that offered light comedy, funny situations, and best of all, it made my want to have Evie's powers. Plus I had a crush on Maureen Flannigan ;) Objectively, it was a cute, fun show oriented for a younger audience but that didn't mean it couldn't be enjoyed by grown-ups. I caught it's re-runs when I was a teenager (mid 90's) and I enjoyed the same way when I was a kid. I didn't miss a single episode when it came on t.v.Maureen Flannigan was the perfect Evie. She was very beautiful, cute, funny, and delivered a good acting. She was the main reason to watch the show. Donna Pescow was really funny and talented. I can't believe she stopped acting. Doug McClure was really goofy and funny. The kind of character that supports perfectly a sitcom. Buzz Belmondo made weird appereances but the man was funny! Overacted yes, but funny. Christina Nigra and Steve Bauer were also goofy but made a good team with Evie. Burt Reynold's voice delivered the moral messages and was a good example for Evie. He taught her how to use her powers.Thinking about this show makes me think and miss my days as a kid. Thank you "Out of this World" for making my childhood happier. Heck, even the opening song for the show makes me happy.
gmnijr2 Out Of This World Revolves around the lives of the Garlands, Troy lives in outer space on Antarius married to Donna who lives on Earth with their Daughter Evie, and Donna's Uncle Beano. On her 13th Birthday, Donna tells Evie that her father does not work for the Government but is actually an alien from another planet. She learns after that that she has the ability to Freeze Time and later develops other powers and just like other teens dealing with their crazy mixed up teenage years, so does Evie. The big difference is that when Evie gets mad at her mom she can freeze her and walk away (most teens would want that power, I'm Sure). Add in a few thought challenged friends, a lot of power-mis-hap's, and u have 96 funny episodes of a 1/2 hour comedy show that started the new "Sabrina" craze! Before Out Of This World, any television characters that had powers were usually adults with the exception of Tabitha from "Bewitched", who only used her powers once in a great while. Evie is and will always be the #1 Alien-human mix in my book of television history!
SClubAli86 I used to watch this show when I was little and I just started watching it again. This show is soo funny! Evie is so COOL! And her boyfriend Chris is really funny! Her mom is awesome! Some of the episodes are pretty wierd, but most of them are SO good. Too bad it ended as a cliffhanger...
onshore I was only 8 years old when this programme appeared on the TV screens in 1989 over here in the UK. Looking back at it, I can remember if I'm right that each birthday Eve had, she would get a present off here father, which would give her the ability to use new powers given to her.The show sadly only lasted 4 years, but thank you for DIGITAL SATELLITE, where there are weekly runs of the programme today! One note I should point out, lookout as when the world is frozen and too see the people move ever slightly, or a simple blink, which is more noticable in series one.
