So, after a mobile phone video of a lighthouse in the rain prompted this awesome fic from [livejournal.com profile] lipstickcat, I thought we could use some picture prompts here at the Eerie, Indiana fandom. On the 5th, 15th and 25th of the month, I'll put up a post where we can share photos or pictures that evoke a sense of Eerie, and these can be used as prompts for fic or art or a poem or icons or whatever shakes loose.

What have you been working on this week, Eerie fans? Now's the time to spread the word about any fannish treats you've got cooking: a line of dialogue from an upcoming fic, linework for your latest art piece, the yarn colours for a new toy. Let us know in the comments!

Eerie Indiana was argubly one of the best young adult shows that ran in the 90's. The show was sort of a comedy, horror hybrid. I personally like to compare it to another show which popped up at the same time, namely Twin Peaks. Not only did both shows deal with paranormal themes, but they were also both ahead of their time respectively. The audience just weren't ready for shows like Twin Peaks and Eerie Indiana, but later on other shows like The X-files, Are You Afraid Of The Dark? and Goosebumbs picked up the ball, and got far more attention than their superior predecessors. Eerie Indiana was created by Jose Rivera and Karl Schaefer, who were also responsible for scripting some of the best episodes. Other great writers were, Vance DeGeneres, Matt Dearborn, Michael Cassutt and Julia Poll. Some notable directors of the series were Joe Dante and Tim Hunter.

The first episode of Eerie Indiana was aired on September 15, 1991 and the last was shown April 12, 1992. As you can see, the show was rather shortlived, and was unfortunately cancelled after only 2 seasons (ironically the same as Twin Peaks). The story goes that the NBC board thought it was stuck in a limbo, being too advanced for kids, yet too childish for adults, and so they decided to pull the plug. Eerie Indiana has since been re-run on countless of different networks, including Disney, Fox Kids and even The Sci-Fi Channel. Due to its creative, satiric and clever nature it is still acknowledged and remembered by many as one of the great shows of the 90's.
