Storyline

The series revolves around best friends Mitchell Taylor and Stanley Hope. Like earlier Eerie, Indiana, residents Marshall Teller and Simon Holmes and they are constantly encountering strange and out-of-this-world phenomena in their hometown. Helping out in their adventures is the mysterious local bartender, Mr. Crawford. The show is technically a spin-off of "Eerie, Indiana" (1991), since it takes place in a parallel universe Eerie that gets "infected" by weirdness when a villain opens a portal from the original Eerie to this one in the first episode of this show.

Trivia

The younger of the two central characters in this series is called "Stanley Hope", likely a reference to the Stanhope, or Stanho-scope, invented in 1857 by René Dagron to allow viewing of microphotographs without using a microscope. See more »

Quotes

Mitchell Taylor: [opening narration for each episode] I do solemnly swear that everything I'm about to tell you is true. A spill of weirdness from another dimension turned my home town into the center of weirdness for the entire universe. Don't believe me? Just watch.

Not as good as the original.
3 June 2000 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

How do you describe this series? Is it a sequel, remake or continuation of the original Eerie Indiana? I think sequel is closest to the mark.

Perhaps the biggest problem with The Other Dimension is that the seven-year gap between the original and The Other Dimension necessitated a complete cast change. The idea of setting the new series in a parallel universe (with the subtle name changes; Marshall Teller becomes Mitchell Taylor and so on) to explain the cast changes was inspired.

Many of the elements that made up the original series are still present. The World O' Stuff is still trading (with Mr Crawford, rather than Mr Radford, as proprietor), and Mitchell and Stanley have an evidence locker that looks suspiciously similar to the one Marshall and Simon had.

Despite that, the show fails to recapture the flavour of the original. It's difficult to pinpoint why. The acting is certainly as good as that on any other kids' show, the budget does not seem less than that of the original Eerie, but the show lacks something that made the original so special.

Although it pales in comparison to the original show, there are far worse ways to spend 30 minutes, and it's still better than Goosebumps.
