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>

Quotes

Marshall Teller: [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.

User Reviews

don't be fooled by the comparison to X-files, etc.
2 April 2002 | by detoploSee all my reviews

"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".
