Let me show my age (or lack thereof) with this piece about a Disney channel TV movie! I was an impressionable 10-year-old when this movie came out in 1999, and although Kirsten Storms was the lead role, I loved her adorable friend Nebula Wade, played by Raven-Symoné.
Raven practically grew up on camera – she was Olivia in the later seasons of "The Cosby Show," Nicole on "Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper" and Charisse in "Dr. Dolittle." Before we knew it, she was a young teenager on "Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century."
Quick recap: the movie is about Zenon, a girl who lives in an orbiting space station community in the year 2049. She’s a rambunctious kid, and is sent to live with her aunt on Earth as a punishment. Culture shock and teen angst ensue; all while she has to stop an evil plot to crash the computers on her space station. Totally believable, right? But note: in the movie, they had iPad-like gadgets. Explain yourself, Apple!
