Sorry. I suddenly felt the urge.
I never watched Alex Mack because her surname made me think of Mackerel and therefore fish. I hate fish.
i am still enjoying the memory of saturday mornings with larisa (had no idea what her name was before)
i think her mate in the show has been in stuff since but can't remember just now
Yes i do
is the new michelle wie.
held her at knifepoint i'm sure you could get her to do anything!
You certainly have a way with words!
And Ray accidentally films Alex's powers and Vince and Dave realise they've seen "the kid" and try to get the video evidence. There's a great slow motion bit before Vince inserts the video where he says "Shoooowwwtttiiiimmmme" with an evil smile...
probably. to be honest i can't remember anything about any of them - plot wise. isn't there one where she uses her powers to help her win a game of basketball?
That one has the food fight in it too with lovely Jessica Alba. I think she and Larisa should re-enact said fight.
Do you remember the amazing 80s electric guitar pop on the end of that ep??
je ne me rappelle pas cet Ã©pisode
she was like a mini T-1000, bless her.
Chris - what's happened to you. Dont deny your Alex Mack roots! Do you remember the one with the teenager played by a 35 yr old man?
just i remember that one. The teenager/grown man is one of the strangest casting choices ever. no explanation at all. thumbs up
in the golden years of Nickelodeon (well when I was still young enough to watch that channel and not cringe)
The older sister was a pain but Ray Alvarado was ace! I remember the basketball one but mostly just remember that that experimentation company tried to catch her every week and failed. Like Budget I don't believe there was much variation in the plot.
Anyway there were loads of greater kiddie progs like Eiree Indiana.
Yes - it was beter, but it wasn't as weird (as in unintentionally odd) as Alex Mack. I think I'm going to write a book on the underlying themes of AM.
more than the basketball one. was there not some boy AM liked or am I wrong?
but he didn't like her that much cos she was a bit of a geek. sometimes she'd use her powers to try and impress him and i think they went on a date once
That was Scott. But he was going out with the mean girl - Kelly. Oh and he was going out with the character played by Jessica Alba in the early eps.
Alex Mack was a mere diversion until Pugwall came on.
i wouldn't be on this site. The Orange Organics were what got me into music. 'and me on my guitar' cue guitar riff
that was an Aussie thing weren't it?
oh and of course there was Transworld Sport before the serious shit started
Now I know why Mum wouldnt let me have a bottle of JD with me on those holiday mornings.
To play the Secret World Of Alex Mack Drinking game, you will need:
1. Episodes of the Secret World Of Alex Mack on tape or DVD.
2. An ample supply of your favorite beverage (milk, right?)
4. Plenty of cushions, bean bag chairs, etc. to collapse on afterwards.
Begin by inserting your weather-beaten Alex Mack videotape/dvd into the big slot on your VCR/DVD player. Dim the lights for dramatic effect, and play the tape. The game begins right as the opening credits appear on the screen. Once the game has begun, you watch the episodes for the listed events. Every time one of them occurs, everybody (or just you as is more often the case) takes a sip of their drink, shouting out â€œI love you Alex!â€? is optional.
1. Alex uses one of her powers.
2. Alex and Annie argue about something.
3. Danielle Atron makes sexual advances at Vince. (This is open to interpretation)
4. Alex displays compassion for a mean/unlikable character.
5. Someone is confused and bewildered due to Alex blowing out a light with a zap.
6. Ray expresses either approval or contempt for Alex using her powers to affect sporting events.
7. Robyn says something depressing.
8. Nicole criticizes one of her friends.
9. Someone hugs Alex.
10. Vince insults Dave.
11. Kelly gets something splattered on her. (twice if Alex causes it)
12. Ray complains about Alex not using her powers to accomplish something.
13. Alex fixes something with a zap.
14. Annie asks George Mack about GC161.
15. Alex puts on a new hat.
16. George Mack is trying to lose weight somehow.
Take 2 Drinks (or one shot of something stronger) When:
17. Alex double morphs someone.
18. Vince is chastised by Danielle Atron for being a failure.
19. Someone belittles Louis Driscol.
20. Annie manages to cure some GC161 related side effect in Alex
21. Somebody steals something.
Take 3 Drinks When:
22. Some animal is exposed to GC161.
23. Robyn says something cheerful.
24. Vince talks to himself
25. You can see the California State Flag flying at Alexâ€™s school.
26. Someone new learns about Alexâ€™s powers.
27. George Mack expresses actual concern over Annie asking him about GC161.
28. Someoneâ€™s parents (besides the Macks) make an appearance.
29. Dave stands up for himself.
Take 4 Drinks When:
30. Someone kissâ€™s or is kissed by Alex. (including animals)
And for the Mormons and non-drinkers
1. Alexâ€™s ability to turn into liquid is scientifically explained in a way that makes logical sense.
2. Dave makes sexual advances on Danielle Atron.
3. Vince displays compassion for another person.
4. Alex uses her powers to kill something.
so many more characters in this than I remember! But you didn't mention Annie's boyfriend - what was he called? Blair? Blaine?
apparently its only been a month since this thread as last bumped...
a monthly thing.
i like your tactic of replying in the middle. i bet most people can't find these posts...
we can say what we like about everyone else and they'll never find out?!
You go first, Grindrod...
That bobbyGeorge - what a tit!
How was that?
here's Larisa's life story
Is when she meets some alternativetype and goes all bad with the eyeliner and purple hair, that or the episode where she swaps bodies with her mum.
I havent seen that ep. It's called "Bad Girl". I have only seen two of the latest series. Who's up for a DiS TSWOAM drinking party?
I haven't watched that program in years.
Well - first thing: find out what episodes we have at our disposal. So, who's got what and is it on VHS or DVD?
But i'll break edge for this.
i'll bring the hooch
The one where Alex joins a band called Diamond and the Roughs? They do a song called "Cellophane Friend" which is great stuff! The mp3 is floating around the web somewhere...
"cellophane friend, I can see through you"
"...Cellophane Friend, I thought I knew you"
She used to turn yellow sometimes, I can't remember why.....
Or worried she glows yellow
To make this thread work.
I used to fancy Larisa Oleynik big time. But then I forgot about her until that threat started.
A little insight into my life there.
Because god knows I'm not going to let this thread die without a fight D'YOU HEAR ME? *Sobs*
threatened you because you'd forgotten about Larisa?
Well done for spotting that typo.
This thread will run and run.
There's life in the old girl yet!
He did threaten me, with KNIVES.
Down at the Paradise Valley Chemical Plant. I'm an employee of Danielle Atron.
Once again, your knowledge of this program astounds me.
I salute you.
I am persecuted for it.
society now, you're rewarded for such behaviour.
Sorry, but this is a strictly TSWOAM thread. If you want to talk about Sabrina, there's plenty of other threads where you can do that.
Alex Mack because I was a bit old for Sabrina. I also liked Out of this World.
It is good to see you carrying on the discussion like this!
I hate to see such a good thread like this drop down the board.
And never come back!
Now where were we, Bobby..?
Larisa Oleynik > Melissa Joan Hart.
i have even heard of this programme before today. hmmm, i feel as though i missed out.
Sabrina was shite though. Wasn't Melissa Joan Hart a sex addict or something?
that is all.
Utter utter shite.
but salem the cat was amazing, it would always cut to him and he would be wearing a stupid hat or something
Salem rules. And as for Bobbygeorge claiming to be too old for "Sabrina", he's clearly never had dirty thoughts about her aunts
was 54 when she started doing Sabrina.
I didn't like Sabrina was because my Dad had a picture of Melissa Joan-Hart on his desktop.
A girl's got to have a few secrets." - Alex Mack, "Road Trip"
"Most girls have these heart-to-heart talks with their big sisters. I get my pulse rate checked and my zapper measured. But if that's what it takes to get Annie to pay attention to me, I can live with it." - Alex Mack, "The Journal"
"Sometimes you just have to trust people." - Alex Mack, "The Neighbor"
"Sometimes in life, my darling, a little mystery is a good thing." - Barbara Mack, "Mystery Man"
"I guess I could have a couple of secrets." - Alex Mack, "Mystery Man"

"The man I love is good and fair to his friends regardless of how uncool or how unpopular they may be."Chemistry"
"It's that chemistry thing. It's so hard to explain. Sometimes your heart tells you one thing, and your brain tells you something else, and it's usually better to trust your brain." - Annie Mack, "Chemistry"
"I'm fourteen years old; that's almost half-way to thirty. I need my own space." - Alex Mack, "A Room of Her Own"
"Being popular doesn't mean you're better than anyone else." - Alex Mack, "Twelve And a Half"

"If we just stick together, we'll be fine." - Alex Mack, "Twelve And a Half"

"Yeah, I guess I kind of see that too." - Louis Driscoll
"And here I was going to say it looked like a fluffy little kitty." - Alex Mack; "The Test"
he snaeky wizard quote? surely that's when the programme hit its peak?
is what i meant
This thread is gonna run and run!
And we'll be talking about petrol or something. Someone call me when it gets to that stage, I have some interesting insights into the LPG market.
LPG stand for and are we all going to be using it someday?
LPG stands for Liquefied Petroleum Gasoline. It's basically a cleaner version of petrol, but we won't be using because it's too expensive and there aren't enough people backing it.
Amazing what you can learn from looking through Fleet News every week.
think about '10 Things I Hate About You'?
That when Larisa googles her name (as I'm sure she regularly does), she might find this thread and join in...
already be here.
Are you here? If you are, please give us some kind of sign!
going to say that.
Do you think she's still proud of her TSWOAM days or that in a few years she'll get all Russell Crowe?
I love Larisa as much as the next man, but she doesn't seem to get a whole load of high profile acting work any more. She has done 5 or 6 movies but only one has really been a big international feature (10 things)plus she was a guest regular in that comedy with John Lithgow about the alien family. So I'm thinking she will be forever known as Alex Mack. I would like to see her back on our screens. And sharpish!
an online campaign coming on. You orchestrate it BobbyG. Me and Budgie are right behind you.
that i don't understand a word of this thread...
...there's a post from thewarn right near the top which kinda makes you well up, doesn't it? :'(
I just looked at it. God I wish I hadnt! <:'(
avoiding all posts the... hell I can't even type his name without sobbing like a fool.
Help us deal with this tragic loss.
stop flogging it.
That's no way to talk about thewarn!
going to be like the emo ones? I hope not.
Didn't quite catch that...
Hey check this out, guys! This is, like, too cool!www.myspace.com/thesecretworldofalexmack
going to let this die, are you?!
I thought this latest development was in the public interest.
Still not been accepted by Secretworldofalexmack myspace.
Admit it - you felt a warm glow when you saw the Alex Mack thread was back.
It's Friday - ALEX MACK DAY!
here it is. How i've missed it.
you should really expand that page, it's a little bit short...
Doesn't Annie Mack now work at Radio 1?
Thats Steve LA Mack
...The rest of the episodes featured only UNsuccessful American actors/actresses.
you're gonna have to bring me up to speed.
"I'm Alex Mack. I was just an average kid until an accident changed my life and since then nothing's been the same. My best friend Ray thinks it cool. My sister Annie thinks I'm a science project. I can't let anyone know, not even my parents. I know the chemical plant has to find me and turn me into some experiment. But you know something, I guess I not so average anymore."
worries and enthralls me in equal measure.
It vaguely excites me also.
She's only 14 dammit!
is in her early twenties I'll have you know.
her personal wikipedia page - clearly written by some deluded fanboy, it includes something like "she is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful women in the world".
you wrote it, right?
" I' M Alex Mack. My life and the nothing' the ever since that where accident becomes same; Until it changed S, as for me the ã?£ which exactly is the average child it is. The friend light ray where I am best thinks of that it is cool. As for my sisters Annie I' Project of science you think of m. I can' It tried the t to know because anyone does not make my parent equal. Chemical planting ones find me and must turn to experiment I have known that. But you have known what, I the average I which is already presumed very. "
Secretworldofalexmack finally approved my friend request! Straight into the top 8! Alright!
When I went in the video shop on my road this weekend, they were playing Ten Things I Hate About You in there. Maybe they were inspired by this wonderful thread?
Whoops there it goes again!
<Thinks: "Just leave it, Bobby. You're going to annoy someone.">
Dammit - I've just accidentally resurrected this thread!
*wipes away tear*
Turkey's overrated. Dry as fook
you were saving this for tomorrow?
but I'm off work tomorrow so I thought I'd surprise you all!
He hates this thread with a passion.
on a wonderful thread.
*blows party whistle*
but this Alex bloke has clearly got the testosterone firing.
Or maybe you're all girls?
cos then it'll be like the chemical that Alex was doused in (and gave her the powers): GC-161. Do you see?
Just so isn't a girl's name. It's stupid. Alex Fluffybunny maybe.
But 'Mack' just makes you think of Humphrey Bogart. Stupid...
alexander is a gender-neutral name.
it was a pretty shit TV show.
never seen it and I haven't read this thread but I thought I'd join in and help BG get it to 161.
pointless comments to boost the number of posts? what are those?
I am kind, aren't I? I'm also very bored. I have no idea what you're talking about though re: useless posts. That would never happen on DiS.
post on DiS is important, nee neccessary to the continued survival of the world. even mine. especially these ones.
on the other hand.. shit weather, eh?
but I feel better as I had a sugar-loaded hot chocolate from our 10p drinks machine and now i feel SUPER DOOPER.
there's no chocolate in that. It's just brown water with sugar in it.
but it tastes me pretty good, and for 10p you can't really complain. plus, i tend to make them so the sugar:brown stuff:water ratio is 1:1:2 or thereabouts :D
I saw a shop in New York called Larisa. It made me think of Bobby. I told him this but he ignored me :(
In what universe?
but still, Alexandra = different to Alexandria, which you said above!
But mine was a typo. :-D
you ruined his thread. it's gone over 161. he'll never forgive you.
although i'll keep my head down at the fog band gig next month just in case..
then you won't need to worry. :-D
but i do like to live dangerously.
But you 161-ruiners are forgiven as long as you come to the Fog Band gig.
I was trying to help. It was guntrip wot did it. Blame him. He's evil *
so he's invulnerable.
when they hear your version of 'there's a ghost in my house'.
I just listened to your record back to back with mine, and I'm afraid I realised - completely objectively - that mine is better. sorry.
Wait, there he is!
I did manage to catch Larisa guesting in 3rd Rock from the Sun. She was great. That's all for LArisanews. But you can always check http://www.larisa.com for more...
i haven't decided what kind yet.
resurrect another classic thread I found?
the rodney dangerfield one
and the Stoke Newington one.
the Stoke Newington one?
that is funny. It's got the Grindrod seal of approval.
Digging up old threads has disturbed us. We would like you go out and play in the rays of your Earth sun and leave us in peace.
I'm at work and trawling through old threads on behalf of Bobby Grindrod is a lot more fun that doing the script reading I'm supposed to be doing.
holy shit, shes attractive now!!!
I'd not seen her wiki before. Always wanted to.
I hadn't seen her entry. What's wrong with that?
I didn't even notice that til you pointed it out!!
for the MArk Knopfler guitar solo on the closing titles...
How did I miss it?
I had with a friend a few days ago.
Me: *hums Greensleeves* I love that song! What's it called?
Me: Oh yeah, that's the one...
for my amazing book of amazing stories
But does anybody remember Allen Strange?
That show was kinda similar. And AMAZING!
"An alien child has been left behind on Earth. He befriends two human children and it is up to them to find a way to get him back home while they try to keep him secret."
Sadly there aren't any YouTube clips of this one, it's hard to find any information.
Malcolm in The Middle.
Have you checked out www.larisa.com?
Hours of fun!
who are fans of Alex Mack can post on?
www.proboards.com is super easy...
Bobby, are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Bobby G? No, wait, that doesn't work either...
There is one on larisa.com.
But please don't look at it.
Shut up BG. You big bully. I was young and stupid. It was 2003. Things were different then.
We can make a better one that that!
And we could make it specifically for the show.
There's tons of internet stuff on Larisa...
Trust me... I've been there...
I don't need you, or anybody else. I'm going on this alone!
I could get her to be in the next FoTB video...
How cool would that be!? She could reprise the character for it... I'm going to get my people onto it immediately!
you know I'm a big advocate of this thread. I was just saying there's a forum for fans of Alex Mack, isn't there?
I feel like you were trying to encourage pwople to search for threads I may or may not have contributed to on said forum...
There weren't any decent avaible URLs... alexmack, alex-mack, secretworld, and thesecretworld are all taken!
thesecretworldofalexmack is too long...
- How it all ends!
I love how she turns into the liquid, and her parents don't see *that* surprised.
In conclusion, Alex Mack, the greatest show on the planet.
Also worth noting that Alex Mack promotes interracial friendship, and there's something of a gay subtext to that 'coming out' scene. Bravo, Alex Mack!
Also, I think that THIS bears repeating:
That *always* bears repeating.
Much loved by all, I think.
And Maria's initial response surely ranks as one of the greatest posts in DiStory!
Can I storyboard it?
[seriously though, Alex Mack with Head Automatica does NOT work. UGH]
because i had a massive crush on her and i REFUSE to come to the realisation that like michaela strachen she was not the most beautiful woman on tv ever.
though i could be vindicated...
but its not worth the risk
The Mack's back with the flava of the year...
is for my peeps at bskybsky B!
i used to watch this show as well on good ole Nickleoden, along with Rocko's Modern Life and Salute Your Shorts
A welcome return.
TSWOAM Season 1 has been released on DVD in the US. ABOUT FREAKING TIME (even though I have most of these episodes on VHS).
apparently it's just an attempt to cash in on Jessica Alba's appearances in a few of the episodes...
I hope they release the other series!!
Oh and here's a trailer for Larisa's new film:
for bobbygeorge and all the other fans
bumped it so yall can check out the LARISA NEWS UPDATE above! So waddya think? EXCITING huh????
looks like it has a massive budget. I like the bit where she balances something on her head though.
moving "indie rock" tune they are playing on the trailer. Anyone know who this is by and where it can be obtained?
hope she's alright about Heath (10 Things co-star).
Should I call her?
