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>

I loved this show when i was 8.. i love it now.
27 October 2000 | by Loz8See all my reviews

Hi :) When i first saw "Eerie" as i now affectionately dub it, I was 8. I lived in England and i remember it was on Channel 4 (pretty good memory since i am now almost 17). I adored it. Omri Katz (Marshall Teller) reminded me of my older brother and I sometimes wished my brother was as cool. 3 years ago, i saw the title "Eerie Indiana" in the Cable TV guide here in Oz. And all my fond memories came rushing back. I remembered 3 episodes quite clearly. This show made an impact on me so large... i don't know how to explain it! Luckily i got to see it over and over again on cable. I can't believe they axed "Eerie" after only 19 episodes, leaving me with only 6 episodes with my now favourite actor Jason Marsden. If you can, watch an episode of Eerie Indiana, no matter what age you are. You will love the references to other TV shows, and common knowledge, the kooky music.. characters, plotlines. And.. perhaps, you will see that there were some programs which tried to be revolutionary. Shame the kids of that era (minus myself of course) didn't see it, coz it's a cult classic now!
