don't be fooled by the comparison to X-files, etc.
"The X-Files" is sometimes an imaginative, funny show, but "Eerie, Indiana" during its first season was consistently so. It was far superior to "Are you afraid of the Dark" and "Goosebumps". I think in its more recent Fox incarnation, it probably lost something.
A better comparison than any of these would be to "The Adventures of Pete and Pete".
