Out of this World!

Whatever happened to the high concept sitcom? "My Name is Earl", with a list of wrongs to right every week? Please! "Out of this World" was about an alien who came to Earth and married a human, got her pregnant, and flew back to his planet. But he left a cube device so his half-alien daughter could communicate with him at the beginning and end of each episode. Also, because Evie (the daughter) was half-alien, she could freeze time by pressing her fingers together. What a show! Note how they cleverly hide the father's face in the opening credits (although I have no idea why it was important to keep his face hidden, I presume he had a human-like face when he went to Earth and managed to blend in and start dating).
