Lisa the Computer Genie - Gorgeous electronically generated being on the sci-fi comedy WEIRD SCIENCE/USA/1994-97.

Vanessa Angel as Lisa the Computer Genie - WEIRD SCIENCE

One stormy night two nerdy high school freshmen Gary Wallace and Wyatt Donnelly programmed a home PC to "design a perfect woman." Gary insisted on making a total babe, while Wyatt hungered for an intellectual equal.

In a strange turn of events, a bolt of lightning hits the computer and out pops an attractive redheaded computer super-babe named Lisa - a living extension of Gary and Wyatt's combined personalities who wears tight dresses and contains a staggering supply of knowledge, be they scientific, political, psychological, biological or cultural. Lisa does have one limitation, however.

Although Lisa can explain how love works in a chemical or psychological way, until she lives it herself, she can't explain love from the heart. For this, she relies on Gary and Wyatt. Throughout their adventures, Gary and Wyatt explore the sexual and emotional nature of being a teenager as well as travel though time, space and alternate universes. Their primary nemesis is Wyatt's psychotic, ultraconservative older brother, Chett.

Gary, Wyatt, Lisa and Chett

Excerpts for the show's first episode "She's Alive"

Lisa: So this is what you boys consider a dream babe. This body's a scathing indictment of a sexist brain-dead MTV generation. But then again, What am I complaining about. I am leggy, buffed, and brainy. Good job, Guys
G&W: Umm.. You're Welcome

G&W: What are you, some kind of witch?
Lisa: Get real. Use your fuzzy logic. Think of me as a P.C. genie. 


So, like, we command you? You'll give us whatever we ask for?


Except for what you want right now.


How do you know what we want now?


You're torgued up 15-year-olds. Check back with me when your legal.


What happened? I was afraid of that.


Afraid of what?


Well, nothing lasts for ever including your wishes. My guess is they could last an hour, a day...six seconds?


What kind of K-Mart genie are you? We wish for stuff, but we can't keep it?


Hey, Don't blame me. Blame the software. I'd have a lot more power if Wyatt had installed the neutronium space modulator. Way to go, smart guy.


Are you sticking around this time?


Before your created me, I didn't exist. Don't you see? You're my reason for living. All I want is to make you happy. Are you happy?


Very Happy.



Theme Song Lyrics

Weird Science
Plastic tubes and pots and pans
Bits and pieces and
Magic from the hand
We’re makin’

Weird Science
Things I’ve never seen before
Behind bolted doors
Talent and imagination

Weird Science
Not what teacher said to do
Makin’ dreams come true
Living tissue, warm flesh

Weird Science
Plastic tubes and pots and pans
Bits and pieces (and)
Bits and pieces (and)

(bits of) my creation - Is it real?
It’s my creation - I do not know
No hesitation--no heart of gold
Just flesh and blood - I do not know

From my heart and from my hand
Why don’t people understand
My intentions . . . . oooh, weird...
Weird Science!!

Weird Science
Magic and technology
Voodoo dolls and chants
We’re makin’

Weird Science
Fantasy and microchips
Shooting from the hip
Something different
We’re makin’

Weird Science
Pictures from a magazine
Diagrams and charts
Mending broken hearts (and makin’)

Weird Science
Something like a recipe
Bits and pieces . . . .
Bits and pieces . . . .
