1982-Powers of Matthew Star

Ah, yes, 1980s Friday night TV.
Matthew Star was a normal high school student except for the fact that he was an alien prince whose powers included telepathy, telekinesis, astral projection and blow-dried 80s hair.
Louis Gossett, Jr was Walt, his guardian and teacher.
This show was delayed a year due to Peter Barton being seriously burned while filming one of the early episodes. Oddly, one week after after a full season of 21 episodes was run, the pilot episode was then aired which called the main character David Star instead of Matthew and didn't even feature the Walt character.
