17 Iconic TV Shows Turning 25 This Year
The Secret World of Alex Mack
Before TV was full of shows about teens getting powers, there was the Nickelodeon series The Secret World of Alex Mack. Alex (Larisa Oleynik) is doused with chemicals and gains superpowers from them. She tries to navigate her teen years while keeping her powers (which include telekinesis and the ability turn into a puddle of water) under wraps. Shows about teen vampires, wolves, and ghost hunters are all the rage right now, but Alex was the OG superpowered young adult. Oh, and not only did it help launch Oleynik’s career as a ’90s teen dream, there was this little actress named Jessica Alba who also appeared on the show, too!
