Growing Up TV: Eerie, Indiana

Posted by on May 29, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Before the viewer was in for a scare with the Goosebumps TV series, there was a lesser known and better series known as Eerie, Indiana. It’s tough adjusting to a new town when you move, and for the Teller family it’s near impossible when they move to Eerie. Marshall Teller (Omri Katz) and Simon Holmes (Justin Shenkarow) become friends when he moves in, sharing one common belief: Eerie is the weirdest place on Earth.

As a kid I watched this show religiously, usually giving me nightmares. One episode of the series “Heart on a Chain” focuses on a girl who needs a heart transplant, getting it at the cost of one of her friend’s lives. Even as a kid I thought this was dark for a kids show, and I loved it! Eerie, Indiana was about as good as Twilight Zone episodes and was the subject of much discussion during the 3rd and 4th grade. If you haven’t seen any episodes head over to Hulu and watch “Heart on a Chain“.
