Storyline

Ten-year-old Aggie Travers is expelled from school after several incidents involving other students. She's very bright but her behavioral problems lead the school to determine she is a danger to the other students. Aggie's problem is that she has telekinetic powers but doesn't know how to control them. Her parents decide to hire a full time caregiver, Karen Ross, who it turns out has powers similar to Aggie's. Karen gives Aggie a crystal to help her focus her powers but when government agents arrive looking for her, Aggie's parents must decide what is in her best interest. Written by garykmcd

ooh, witchy woman
18 May 2007 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Perhaps having Ann Hamilton, known for primarily chick flick TV, write this episode wasn't such a good idea, as this episode starring a young pre-American Beauty Thora Birch about a secret coven of witches who take interest in a young girl who's one of them and the government who dislikes them is basically the equivalent of any generic Lifetime movie. Marginally good acting, but it just didn't have the feel of an Outer Limits episode and is definite nowhere near the caliber of storytelling I expect from the aforementioned show. (even if those expectations were already reduced as opposed to the original better series.
