Storyline

When Marshall Teller's (Omri Katz) family moves to the small rural town of Eerie, Indiana (pop. 16,661), he discovers that their new home "is the center of weirdness for the universe." Elvis (Steve Peri) lives there, as do twin brothers (Dan and Don Stanton) who stay young by sleeping in Foreverware. Each episode, Marshall and his friend Simon (Justin Shenkarow) collect evidence of the many creepy things happening in their far-from-ordinary hometown. Written by Jonathan D. Parshall <jdp1981@netscape.net>

This shouldn't have been cancelled
16 July 2000 | by freak-39See all my reviews

Eerie, Indiana is usually shown on Channel 4 in the hollidays in our country and I never miss it even though I have taped most episodes. My favourite episodes had to be the ones with Dash-X(Jason Marsden). I was upset when I realised there was only 5 or 6 in that series and it was then cancelled. There was so much that wasn't answered, for example, where did Dash-X come from? Why did he have grey hair?

This is The X-files but for kids and don't watch Eerie Indiana The Other Dimension because it doesn't have what the original series had (it doesn't even have any of the original characters). So if this is on TV watch it and see for yourselves that this is a good and entertaining show that shouldn't have been cancelled.
