As with so many things in recent years that have come out of the archive and remade for a modern audience, Eerie Indiana: The Other Dimension does not have the charm of the original. Why this is really unknown because it looks and feels the same as the original (apart from the cast) but... well I don't know. I think it just wants to be an updated Goosebumps really using the Eerie Indiana template but doesn't pull it off.
One of the episodes, I presume the first in the run to set the series up, uses archive footage of the original series to try and explain (not very well it has to be said) that the wierdness of Indiana has spilled over into a new dimension. It should have worked. Just the way it was done ruined everything. The rest of the series was really a load of tosh in hindsight, nothing really memorable about it.
I'm not saying that it shouldn't have happened but it was just so detached from the first run in a few regards that, well, it sealed its own fate really. Or maybe I just grew up instead. Still at least it launched Daniel Clark's acting career so some good came out of it after all :¬D
