    My daughter is 9 years old and loves the Goosebumps shows and books. Eerie,IN seems to be very similar. Would that show be appropriate for her age and is it similar to Goosebumps? I know it is based on one kid in his town and the strange goings on.

    Thanks!

    Yeah Todd, I think it would be fine. It's been awhile since I've seen it, but I remember it being a "fun" show more than a "scary" show.

    I believe so. If I recall, I think it used to run in the 7 p.m. hour or even on Saturday mornings, both prime family/kid time. I think the Goosebumps crowd was exactly the audience they were hoping for.

    Eerie leans more toward "bizarre" than "scary" or "creepy". If your daughter enjoys such strangeness, I agree that the show should be fine for her. (No strong language, sexual content, etc.) In fact, in many ways, Eerie has always reminded me just a bit of a kids show from several years ago..."Pete & Pete"...which was another very entertaining exercise in strangeness. Made for kids, but enjoyed by many adults, myself included. Eerie has that same warped sensibility about it.

    The show is suppose to be a X-Files for kids, so that's the show it more closely resembles IMO.

    The main difference is that Eerie, IN is much better.

    That's about the age I was when I watched it. Perfectly fine for a 9 year old.

    As someone from Indiana... who grew up on the show, I can honestly tell you that Eerie, Indiana was not a scary show, and if your daughter loves Goosebumps, then she will really enjoy this. It is more of a sci-fi, family friendly show.
