Editorial Reviews

Alex Mack was one of the most popular television shows for kids in the 90’s. Originally airing on Nickelodeon, the shows follows a normal thirteen-year-old, Alex (Larissa Oleynik), dreading her first day of junior high school and trying to deal with the typical adolescent concerns. But a toxic spill changes all that. On her way home from school, a chemical accident suddenly leaves her biologically altered. Alex now has the ability to liquefy herself, turn into a human magnet, move objects and create force fields. Featuring the TV acting debut of Jessica Alba (Sin City, Fantastic Four), The Secret World of Alex Mack: The Complete First season is now available for the first time on DVD!

Word around the campfire is the first season of Alex Mack will be the only season released on DVD because the powers that be are only trying to capatilize on the success of Jessica Alba.

Although she only appeared in a few episodes of the first season they are pushing the DVD by using her name and picture on the front cover.

I've also heard that although there were originally 13 episodes in the first season this DVD set will only contain 12 episodes making it an incomplete season. This demonstrates just how hastily this product was thrown together and further proving that very little time was spent on getting a complete and quality-made DVD set together.

I hope these rumors prove false and that "The Secret World Of Alex Mack" is given the proper treatment it and it's fans deserve.

UPDATE 10/04/07: The rumors regarding the "missing episode" have been proven untrue. All 13 episodes are represented in this DVD set.

Genius Entertainment (better known as Genius Products) has done an excellent job of bringing The Secret World Of Alex Mack back to life. The first season consists of 2 DVDs in a standard plastic case. All 13 episodes are included but they are not (according to various sources) represented in the sequential order of the original television broadcasts.

This is a minor detail considering fans of the show have been foaming at the mouth to get their hands on an official DVD release of the program for years.

Will the final three seasons ever see the light of day? Only time will tell.

Episode Listing For This DVD:


1. The Accident

2. Shock Value

3. Hoop War

4. Cold Day In Paradise Valley

5. False Alarm

The Secret World of Alex Mack has always been my favorite show, and one sorely missed since it ended in 1998. So, I was more than eager to preorder the season and watch it as soon as possible. Thankfully, the show remains exactly as it did in memory - colorful characters, creative and morally education plots, and plenty of humor. Sadly, there are no features to the dvd.

Also, I don't really understand why, but Jessica Alba, who is featured in two or three of the first episodes, has her face and name plastered all over the case cover, dvd label, and menu screens. I understand that she's quite popular and that we're led to believe this is her television debut, but Larisa Oleynik is the star here, not her. And with some great supporting actors whose names aren't even mentioned except for the ending credits (Darris Love, Meredith Bishop, etc.) it's kind of a shame.

Hopefully if or when we see season two's release, it'll have commentaries or interviews.

The Secret World Of Alex Mack was the highest-rated show on Nickelodeon in the '90's, and for good reason. Droves of loyal fans have been waiting almost a decade for Alex Mack to officially come out on DVD.

It's a great story... 13 year-old Alex Mack, played by Larisa Oleynik of "Ten Things I Hate About You" and "3rd Rock From The Sun" fame, finds herself drenched in a strange chemical that gives her super powers, and from there on out her life is changed forever.

One of the most family-oriented, morally-grounded programs to air in the '90's, Alex Mack is one of the most endearing television characters in the last 15 years. Buy Season One of this product and there's no doubt you'll be buying the next three seasons when they come out too.

I'm not kidding, this is a great show for all ages.

When I purchased this DVD, I wondered if it would still be as entertaining as it was 16 years ago. Since the price had dropped to $11.99, I figured it wouldn't hurt to check it out if only for nostalgic purposes. I could not stop watching!!! This series stands the test of time. It's a great family show with great plot lines. It really brought me back to 1994 and reminded me of why I enjoyed this show so much. Alex Mack is a wonderfully developed character played Larisa Oleynik; she has insecurities, a hard time finding her place at school and within her family, a great heart, and is constantly conflicted over the use of her superpowers. For $11.99, the price is definitely worth it. Netflix doesn't even offer this title. The first season includes 13 episodes. Well worth the price. Entourage usually has 12 episodes and buyers pay well over $25.00 for a season.

I was sad to see that there weren't any bonus features and the distributor plastered Jessica Alba's face all over the cover to ride her coattails for the purpose of selling more copies. I hope fans of the show learn about its release and buy a copy so that the distributor will decide to release the other three seasons.

i just don't understand why it took this long for the "official" release of this very fine show. my only concern is the treatment of the show. i was disappointed in the way the "powers that be" released WKRP, Providence and even Northern Exposure. i don't get why shows and music just sit on some shelf collecting dust when folks would be happy to buy the stuff. it took forever to get the Pretender on DVD and Freaks and Geeks. i must say if the folks who put out the Alex Mack DVD follow the example of the Freaks n' Geeks crowd it will be a great product. i want to show support for this effort but will probably wait till some actual reviews come in.
