5.30PM, WED­NES­DAY, ABC ME ITCH­ING­HAM – aka “Itch” – Lofte (Sa­muel Ire­land, pic­tured mid­dle) is no or­di­nary teenager. While his peers play sports and col­lect footy cards, Itch spends his days scour­ing for el­e­ments from the pe­ri­odic ta­ble and con­duct­ing ex­plo­sive ex­per­i­ments in his bed­room. When Itch gets his hands on a ra­dioac­tive rock, which could po­ten­tially be a new and clean source of en­ergy, he finds him­self deal­ing with tougher foes than an over­pro­tec­tive mother and a jeal­ous class jock. His dis­cov­ery also at­tracts the at­ten­tion of Lucy; the girl he has been ad­mir­ing qui­etly from afar for years. Though Lucy is pop­u­lar and dat­ing Itch’s neme­sis, she’s also the daugh­ter of a sci­en­tist who shares Itch’s love of the lab­o­ra­tory life. The pair of them, along with Itch’s sis­ter and cousin, work to­gether to pro­tect the rock from the evil forces that are ea­ger to snatch it for their own sin­is­ter agenda.
