Mitchell creates a 13-year-old clone of his dad by accident. The kid turns out to have the same radical hippie beliefs as Mitchell's dad did in the 1960s, when he tried to plant a giant potato bomb ...
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.
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 »
[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.

This feels like the deformed twin of the original show
I don't know, I never really watched much of it, but when I was a kid and we didn't have a PC or internet at home, I'd accidentally watch a few episodes of this on TV, but it always felt short compared to the original one.
Like, it tried to do the exact same thing, but it just didn't work out. It has that feeling, like a parallel dimension where everything is kinda the same yet a bit different.
I could never identify with the characters and they looked very weird and unlikable, and I even felt regret they aren't showing the original version, but this one instead.
On the other hand, I've rewatched the original show twice or thrice already and I still enjoy it as an adult. Too bad it didn't get more seasons.
If you want to watch this so bad, go ahead, but mark my words, as soon as you see a few episodes, you will realize this is a waste of time and the original is better.
