The Journey of Allen Strange

Show Summary

This is the story of Allen Strange, an average everyday human teenager... okay maybe he's not average... maybe he's not human. Allen is actually an alien who was stranded on Earth, taking the form of a human teenager, he becomes friends with the Stevensons, Robbie and Josh. While keeping his secret, they teach Allen to live as a human and try to find ways for him to return home. Character Guide Allen Strange: Except for being from another planet, there's nothing that strange about Allen Strange. He stowed away on an intergalactic transport vessel on his home planet, Xela, and then got left behind on Earth. A genius by Earth standards, he can look human, and he can learn anything faster than you can open a textbook, (he picked up our language in a single day!) Sure Allen is homesick, but he likes our little blue planet, and he's made some really good friends. Who knows? Allen's mistake could end up being the best thing that ever happened to him. Robbie Stevenson: Robbie was the first human who reached out to help Allen, and she's become his best friend on Earth. Allen's lucky to have Robbie as his guide to his new planet--she's smart, she's independent and she can really keep a secret. Maybe Robbie and Allen are so close because they have something in common--they both know what it means to miss something. Allen misses his family back home on Xela, and Robbie misses her mom, who lives in San Francisco. Josh Stevenson: Josh is Robbie's younger brother. He's really into UFOs, so having an alien around the house is just about the coolest thing that could ever happen to him. He lives and breathes comic books, horror movies and TV shows about life in outer space. But Josh isn't living in a dream world. He's wired into the Internet and knows how to get things done. If you need information or a solution to a problem, Josh is your man. Currently appears: Nickelodeon Japan: 1:00 PM (Weekdays).moreless

  • not the most original but it was still good. and wow i can't believe i still remember it.

    basically its about an alien kid whos trying to find his way back home. he's bunking with two kids that found him so its kinda like et but with a human looking person. The acting was sub par and it was definately better than the reality sitcom crap they have on nowadays. The cgi editing for the show was really good considering the technology was very new back then. I don't remember much from it or how it ended but i think that in the end i he chose to stay with the kids instead of going home. anyway an awesome show and i'm surprised there aren't more reviews for it.moreless
  • Not so bad!

    I used to watch this show when I was growing up. When I think about it, I remember it pretty well. If you ask me, it was a pretty good show. However, I don't remember the opening sequence and theme song very well. In addition to that, everyone was ideally cast. Also, the writing was very strong. The performances were top-grade, too. I hope some network brings it back so I can see every episode. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever, even though I'm not sure if I've seen every episode. Now, in conclusion, if some network ever brings it back, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.moreless
  • Great show

    The Journey Of Alan Strange was a great show about a being from another planet who crash-lands on earth and trys to fit in with humans, Arjay Smith was a great choice after seeing him in The Day After Tomorrow and remembering this show they where a great match as was the rest of the cast. The result of him trying to fit in was often very funny.
  • excellent show!!!!!

    I think the journey of allen strange was an excellent show. I think Nickelodeon deff needs more better shows like they used to. Right now all they have is a whole bunch of crap there old shows were the best though! and adventures of allen strange was a classic nickelodeon show!
  • I notice I'm the first to review this show....

    I used to watch this show all the time. It ended early but was entertaining. I wish Nickelodeon had more good shows on like that. All of the shows (with real people) they have now I'm not fond of, except for Drake & Josh. Anyways, I need to reach fifty words.
