[intro voiceover for the first season shows]
My name is Marshall Teller. I knew my new home town was going to be different from where I grew up in New Jersey, but this is ridiculous. Nobody believes me, but Eerie, Indiana is the center of weirdness for the entire planet. Item - Elvis lives on my paper route.

Thank you, little paper boy.
Item - Bigfoot eats out of my trash. Item - even man's best friend is weird.

In the episode "Who's Who," we meet a family whose members all have the middle name Bob, even the daughter. In the closing credits, all the crew members have the middle name Bob. See more »
As sad as I was to see this excellent quirky show end, I was blown away by the final episode. In "Reality Takes a Holiday" Marshall (Omri Katz) suddenly finds himself on a t.v. sound stage and his family starts calling him Omri saying that they are all characters on a show called "Eerie, Indiana. He finds a script which has everything he does magically appear seconds after the fact. He then finds out that he is being written out of the series and will be killed. Many of the crew have cameos in this episode and it is a fitting finale to one of my favorite modern shows. I think that it was just too weird for most people to handle.
