Does anyone remember these two sitcoms from the 80's? They were both syndicated I believe, involving kids with super powers. Jerry O'Connell was the kid in 'My Secret Identity' which was about a kid and his mad scientist pal, who gets caught in an experiment that goes bad and ends up with super powers as a side effect. "Out of this World" was about a girl whose mother is human, but whose father is an alien, hence she has the power to stop time by pressing her two index fingers together. Both of these shows were great fun watching while I was growing up. I hope that they both come out on dvd soon. Anyone else remember this besides me?

    Yes, I do remember these shows, I think they were on the Fox network before it was officially the Fox network.

      Yes, I do remember those shows and I watched them. I still like the theme to "Out of This World".

      I think the next time I ever saw Jerry O. was when the show Sliders started and I was floored because I thought he had gotten so hot and I still think he's hot. Excuse me for sounding so girly.

      Yeah, I wished I could fly with spray cans at that time, lol.

        I remember both of those shows! We had all of the best syndicated shows in Lansing. I watched those and Charles in Charge and Small Wonder. Why don't we have cool syndicated shows like that to waste away Saturday afternoons anymore?

          My Secret Identity was still airing re-runs up until a couple weeks ago on my sattelite. I'm not sure what station, but I haven't been able to find it since. Of course, being the geek I am, I had to watch it all the time. I remember Out of this World! I would watch that every day after school, it came on right before My secret identity... then it'd be dinnertime, homework then bed!(pfft, yeah right, like I ever went to bed)
