Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Eerie, Indiana is a '90s series about a teen who investigates strange happenings in his new hometown. Although the stories often center on spooky scenarios (a haunted house, an alien in the neighborhood, etc.), few kids will find the content truly scary because of the show's jovial tone and the dated special effects. The teen protagonist always takes matters into his own hands when he suspects something's not right in his neighborhood, so it's a good idea to remind your kids what they should do if they ever feel something's amiss at school or in their community. Ultimately, this show's clean content, humorous undertones, and comical pop-culture references make it a great pick for families.

Sexual Content

Some flirting between teens.

Violence

The show deals more in the bizarre and mysterious than in truly frightening stories, but a good portion of each episode builds the pretense that something sinister is going on. Some themes are worrisome in theory (a pack of dogs plotting to take over the town, or a ghost haunting a local building), but the show's light tone makes it hard to take these suggestion seriously. There is mention of death (and, in a couple of case, the characters fear for their lives). Occasionally there's some physical contact like slapping or pushing between characters.

Language

Very rarely "hell," plus playground talk like "shut up" among kids.

Social Behavior

Kids see that looks can be deceiving, and that it's always better to learn the truth about a person or a strange situation than to judge it on its appearance alone. Of course, Marshall's investigations often turn up strange truths that lead to even more questions, but at least he diffuses his initial fear by yielding to his curiosity and compiling facts through investigation. Rarely the show touches on serious issues like death or homelessness.
