Sunday Cinema – “Whiz Kids”


Whiz kids


Hot off his stint as Albert on “Little House on the Prairie”, Matthew Labyorteaux starred in this short-lived television series about a group of intelligent kids and their adventures solving crime. Trying to cash in on the popularity of the movie “War Games” and the up-and-coming technological age, this show was way ahead of its time. Most people across the country back in 1983 didn’t own a computer, so a major portion of the viewing audience didn’t have a connection to the content of the show and unfortunately the scripting or guest stars weren’t enough to keep them. The show lasted for 18 episodes, with today’s selection being the last.

In this episode, Alice puts herself in danger after overhearing the plans for a crime come over the drive-thru speaker at her job. It’s up to a news reporter and the gang to stop the perpetrators. Someone posted this gem online to enjoy
