The Story

Where did

the story of Atlantis High begin? More importantly, where will it end…? Giles Gordon

 Our story begins with Giles Gordon, a 16-year-old nerd, who moves into Sunset Cove with his eccentric mother, Dorothy, and wacky Grandpa. Sunset Cove appears perfect in every way – it is an idyllic coastal town where the beach is always around the corner, the sun forever blazes onto endless golden sands, the surf is up and never down, and the people of the town are beautiful. It is the world of sunshine soaps where everything is perfect in tone – but as Giles soon discovers, there is more to Sunset Cove than meets the eye…

Giles is the new student at Atlantis High, the local high school, where the students seem to be – weird. Josh and SabrinaDuring classes some fall asleep, start dancing or doing each other’s hair, read magazines, talk, stage fashion shows – and the teachers don’t seem to have a problem with this because they seem weird too. Could the school being reputedly built on the lost city of Atlantis have anything to do with this?

Feeling like a fish out of water, Giles soon falls in love with classmate Octavia Vermont, who is beautiful and amazingly intelligent. However, Giles has a rival for Octavia’s affections in the form of Josh Montana, the wealthy and handsome bad boy of Atlantis High. But little does Giles know that Octavia is really a secret agent, her activity at the school reflecting a hidden agenda – and Josh Montana himself masquerades as a crime-fighting superhero at night…

Giles also makes friends with Beanie, a kid with very large pointy ears and a fascination with flying saucers. Beanie doesn’t know his origins – could he really be an alien? Giles also becomes friends with Jet Marigold, a feisty blue-haired chick with attitude – and a strong belief in some wild conspiracy theories – might some of her theories actually be true?

The science teacher of Atlantis High, Mr Dorsey, has a strange accent and a fondness for rodents. He also looks up to the stars and speaks into a flower. Is he just eccentric – or an alien on a secret mission? Giles, Octavia, Jet and Beanie set out to try and unravel the mystery.

There are other questions that Giles encounters… what is the secret of Giles’ mother? Is there something lurking from her past – and who does she work for really? Why does Giles’ Grandpa always sit in front of the television – does he have something to hide? The military under Commander Vermont are a constant sight around Atlantis High and Sunset Cove – but what are they searching for…?

gilesandfriendsWith his friends, Giles finds himself on a series of unexpected adventures and surprises at Atlantis High, the beach and in and around Sunset Cove. There is an unforgettable school performance of Romeo and Juliet, a missing radiation bomb, tumultuous love affairs and relationships, a hilarious fancy-dress party, a trip around the wonders of the world in a bus, a popular television talk show, ninjas and secret agents, funny rabbits with psychic powers, a trio of intrepid alien travelers, superheroes and supervillains, and a dramatic climax at the end of the series which may affect the world – and universe – forever.

The story is a wild roller coaster ride as Giles tries to discover the mysteries surrounding his new home in Sunset Cove – and as the adventures continue to unfold, his life is about to change forever in ways he never expected . . .

Episode 7


The ALIENs are buzzing.

A veiled ANTONIA mourns ANTONY’s departure. So does SOPHIE.

The ALIENS activate their ‘last distress signal’, which in turn activates DORSEY’s blinker. CMDR VERMONT and his platoon also pick up on the distress signal.

SOPHIE tries to activate her poltergeist to get back at ANTONIA for driving ANTONY away. But the poltergeist is ghostly quiet.

BEANIE steals round things that look like flying saucers.

The ALIENS find themselves in the garbage. DORSEY and CMDR VERMONT try to track the signal discreetly. The fly buzzes off.

GILES finds BEANIE stealing the hubcaps off a police car. OFFICER COSTELLO is excited – an actual crime. GILES is taken away to be locked up.

OCTAVIA uses her brilliance to conclude that there is a logical explanation for GILES jailing. JOSH is hellbent on solving the crime and exposing GILES for the true criminal he is.

The platoon blow their opportunity to get the ALIENS.

JET explains the concept of jail to BEANIE. They have to get GILES out.

OCTAVIA gives her sympathy to DOROTHY re GILES. GRAMPA’s got a plan to get GILES out.

Sherlock JOSH tries to find GILES’s hubcap thief accomplices. HELLS BIKERS– of course!

GRAMPA knits GILES a cake containing a vast assortment of electrical implements to break out. There’s just one problem – no power socket.

OCTAVIA convinces the shoes that GILES is useful. She’s not developing “feelings” for him, is she?

OFFICER COSTELLO is devastated when the Hexagon orders him to release the hubcap criminal, GILES. He watches as the limelight pans to another cop who has arrested COMMANDER VERMONT.

JOSH finally locates the HELLS BIKERS – and is beaten up once again. GILES is free!!


Episode 6


The aliens, VORTEX, NEBULA and XERON have washed up on the beach.

In spite of the success of last episode’s Romeo and Juliet GILES is back to square one. He is not fitting in at Atlantis High.

DOROTHY is “cleaning” the Vermont’s house.

ANTONIA gets a break-up note from ANTONY. ANTONY confides to GILES that ANTONIA is doing his head in – literally. GILES wants to help them/her/him/it by splitting them up. He convinces ANTONY that he needs to leave Sunset Cove. This upsets SOPHIE and her pal.

JOSH is advertising his Silver Hotline. He has no new messages.

Q tells OCTAVIA that her father knows more than he thinks.

DORSEY has not heard from the aliens for a week. He despairs.

The Beach Volley Ball final is held. Cheerleader ANTONIA is upset. GILES, JET, BEANIE and DON try to console her with food.

Meanwhile the miniaturised spaceship on the beach has been picked up by the volley ball. The aliens are thrown back and forth.

Back at the Vermont’s residence DOROTHY has found an old photo of MRS. VERMONT. Unbeknownst to her she is being watched.

The pizza takes too long to order so GILES and the gang decide to take ANTONIA shopping. SOPHIE, still upset at ANTONY’s departure, causes a gust of wind that picks up the volley ball (with the aliens) and flings it at SABRINA’s bikini bottom. SABRINA now has an annoying itch and goes to get some cream.

OCTAVIA is caught and sent to the store for cigars.

GILES and co. arrive at the store to find crazed ANTONY with a dangerous frozen chicken. Everyone is hostage. The store owner secretly dials the Silver Lining. The aliens distress signal is operating again, attracting the attention of DORSEY and VERMONT.

GILES convinces ANTONY that if he changes to ANTONIA then he will not be arrested. A fly bugs SABRINA and it picks up the aliens.

The military storm the supermarket hoping to trace the signal. JOSH the superhero makes a smashing appearance… a tad too late.

ANTONY is sent off in to the sunset by a farewell party… that includes ANTONIA… ??!!
