Look at this joystick thing Mike got for the new Tekken game and tell me this won't turn my telly into an intergalactic portal/strand me in an old black and white horror movie while a clasic universal monster roams around my flat/send me to an alternate reality where my life is a (really boring) TV show/create a terrible Canadian spin off version of me.

Seriously though, if you don't hear from me for a few days, flip through the satellite channels and make sure I'm not there, okay?

Eerie, Indiana is an American television series that aired on ABC from 1991 to 1992 and then on syndication on FOX from 1997 to 1998. The series was created by José Rivera and Karl Schaefer, with Joe Dante serving as creative consultant.

The show revolves around Marshall Teller, a young boy whose family moves to the desolate town of Eerie, Indiana, population of 16,661. While moving into his new home, he meets Simon Holmes, one of the few normal people in Eerie. Together, they are faced with bizarre scenarios, which include discovering a sinister group of intelligent dogs that are planning on taking over the world, and meeting a tornado hunter who is reminiscent of Captain Ahab. They also confront numerous urban legends such as Bigfoot and a still-living Elvis Presley. Although the show was host to a plethora of jokes, it also featured a serious X-Files-like tone. After thirteen episodes, one of which did not air during the network run, the series was retooled with Jason Marsden's "Dash X" added to the cast, and Archie Hahn's Mr. Radford is revealed to be an imposter, with John Astin revealed to be the "actual" Mr. Radford. The final episode was a tongue-in-cheek, fourth wall breaking sequence of events depicting Dash X's attempts to take over as star of the show.

In 1998, a spin off series was produced, Eerie, Indiana: The Other Dimension. The series was filmed in Canada, and focused on another, younger boy while still following the concept of the original show. The spin off was short-lived, and only lasted one season. The first episode of the latter show, "Switching Channels", features a crossover between the two shows via a TV set.

I remeber this show scaring the crap out of me in the early 90s. Anyone else watched it? It's out on DVD and you'll find most - if not all - of the episodes on a certain popular video-hosting site.
