FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Feature~V8351~Carrie~carrie]] meets [[Feature~V38739~Porky's~porkys]] as [[Feature~V319778~Charles in Charge~charlesincharge[tvseries]]] co-stars [[Performer~P3333~Scott Baio~scottbaio]] and [[Performer~P33~Willie Aames~willieaames]] re-team for this mischievous-minded teen comedy about a hormonal high school science student suddenly bestowed with telekinetic powers. Emerson High School genius Barney Springboro ([[Performer~P3333~Baio~scottbaio]]) has a keen understanding of the periodic table of the elements, and a curious knack for experimentation. One day, while Barney is conducting a particularly sensitive experiment in horticulture, the lab is suddenly set ablaze, and his dreams appear to go up in flames. But any scientist will tell you that some of the best discoveries appear from the ashes of failure, and when Barney realizes that he now possesses the power of telekinesis his high school life suddenly becomes a lot more interesting. Of course the jocks don't stand a chance against a geek who can knock out a home run with the power of his mind, and as Barney's hormones take hold the skirts begin to flip and the tops begin to pop. Now, as the senior prom draws near, Barney does his best to land a date for the dance as his horrified parents put in a call to the local exorcist, his best friend Peyton ([[Performer~P33~Aames~willieaames]]) joins in on the fun, and a local reporter attempts to break the biggest story this small town has ever known. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
