So Weird was a television series that aired on Disney Channel from 1999 to 2001. The show followed the life of a teenage girl named Fiona Phillips, played by Cara DeLizia, who traveled around the country with her musician mother Molly Phillips, played by Mackenzie Phillips, and her brother Jack Phillips, played by Patrick Levis. The trio is on the road as Molly performs at various venues, and Fiona uses her experiences to document strange phenomena and paranormal events for her website.

The series opened with an eerie song by Mackenzie Phillips, setting the tone for what was to come. The show embraced the notion that there was more to the world than what meets the eye, as Fiona discovered supernatural events and unusual happenings during her travels.

Fiona's character was curious and daring, diving headfirst into her investigations even when it put her in danger. She had a deep connection to the paranormal, due to her own experiences with it, and her open mind allowed her to see the world differently than most people. Fiona's website, 'So Weird', was a place where she could share her findings with others who shared her interests, and it became a central theme for the show.

Molly's role as a traveling musician brought the family into contact with various people from different walks of life. This gave the show an opportunity to explore different cultures and stories, and allowed for a diverse range of characters to be introduced. Molly was supportive of Fiona's investigations but also acted as a protective mother, being wary of the dangers that came with them.

Jack, Fiona's younger brother, was a computer genius and provided technical support for the So Weird website. He also had his own encounters with the supernatural, and although not as gung-ho as Fiona, he was always willing to lend a hand in her investigations.

The show was unique for its time, as it tackled themes of the supernatural and paranormal without relying solely on jump-scares or gore. Instead, it relied on a sense of unease and mystery, with each episode leaving viewers guessing until the very end. The show didn't shy away from the more esoteric aspects of the paranormal, such as astral projection, poltergeist activity, and even reincarnation.

So Weird also had a musical element to it, with Molly performing songs at various venues across the country. The music played a large part in the show, with Mackenzie Phillips's haunting voice setting the tone for many of the episodes. The music was often used as a backdrop for Fiona's investigations, and provided a sense of continuity throughout the show.

The show had a loyal fan base during its short run, with many praising the show for its departure from the usual Disney Channel fare. So Weird's characters were multi-dimensional, with flaws that made them relatable to viewers. The show tackled difficult themes, such as death and loss, with sensitivity and care.

So Weird was cancelled after three seasons due to a change in management at Disney Channel, and its absence was felt by its fans. The show has since gained a cult following, with many lamenting its cancellation and expressing a desire for its return.

In conclusion, So Weird was a unique and thought-provoking show that tackled themes of the supernatural with sensitivity and care. Its characters were multi-dimensional and its music haunting, making it stand out from the usual Disney Channel fare. Although its run was short, the show has gained a loyal following and remains a beloved memory for many of its fans.

So Weird is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (65 episodes). The series first aired on January 18, 1999.
