11 December 2005 | meatriot
early 80's short lived sci fi series
Its hard to remember specifics about this show, but all i know is two things. I loved this show when i was younger, and NO ONE ELSE remembers it! Every sci fi geek I ask looks at me like i have two heads when i mention the name Matthew Star. My mother and I used to watch this show religiously. Te best visual i can remember from the show was in the opening sequence where Matthew is seen playing ping pong with himself. He uses his telekinesis to control the other paddle. If you really think of the competition this kid has for alternate teen sci fi heroes in the last 25 years, Matthew doesn't fare too badly. Up against Evie in Out of this World, Wesley Crusher in Next Generation and the fat kid from stand by me in My Secret Identity; my vote is for Matthew Star!
