  • Eureka (2006-2012)

    Okay so I am just starting this series. Let me know your thoughts if you have any. I watched the Pilot and several episodes when it was on, but never committed. I have watched the pilot again. They hooked me again. We'll see if it lasts. LOL


    IMDB
    After a strange accident sidelines Eureka's sheriff, U.S. Marshal Jack Carter takes over the investigation into the mysterious phenomenon that led to the death of a resident.

    i loved it and got to ask eddi mclintock, who played the sherrif, a question at fragon con 2012 "some of the sutnts looked painful, did the hurt
    h literally rubbed his hands together with gless, and ais "Ive been waiting for someone to ask me that question and proceeded to spend the rest of the panel time, about 10 mnutes, wing lyrical about it.
    the poeple waitng in line behind me to ask questions were glaring daggers but i didn't care.
    "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

      Yeah it is always great when you have the question the person wants to answer the most.

      EPISODE 2
      MANY HAPPY RETURNS

      Liked
      I enjoyed this one. I like the whole SMART HOUSE concept. I liked the funeral twist. Not so sure how I feel about the new "villain".

      Liked That the Daughter was gone.

      Didn't Like

      That they brought the daughter back.

      REALLY didn't like what Allison Blake (Sally Richardson-Whitfield) did to Susan Perkins (Jennifer Clemment). That was horrible. I would have punched her in the face. Yeah I knew there was going to be some happy ending, but that was soooooooooo messed up.





      WARNING!!!!! WARNING!!!!! SPOILER AHEAD WARNING!!!!! WARNIG!!!!!

      What if the kid had seen her? And she isn't his mother so bringing her to pretend she is his mother is ridiculous. And how would you explain to the kid because you are going to have to explain to him when he realizes she doesn't act right. I know it is a TV show, but that started as a great twist and their forcing a happy ending just made it messed up.

      IMDB
      What appears to be a ghost begins terrorizing people and disrupting equipment shortly after a funeral, and even more surprising, one of the recently dead reappears alive.

        I enjoyed the show. It got a little convoluted sometimes but I generally liked the characters.

        Phaze, wasn't Colin Ferguson the sheriff rather than McClintock? McClintock was in Warehouse 13 (another show I enjoyed)

          Agree totally.

          Yes and yes.
          And I enjoyed Warehouse too. Where Eureka is a bit in advance.

            Yes, Eureka started in 2006. Warehouse 13 in 2009. I purchased the complete series of WAREHOUSE 13, but have yet to get into it. I remember I watched season one and part of season two. I also remembered LOVING Saul Rubinek, but hating the trendy hip young rebel teen cast member. And now back to Eureka

            EPISODE 3
            BEFORE I FORGET

            B5 GUEST STAR SIGHTING - TAMLYN TOMITA

            Liked

            Pretty much everything. Andrew Airlie, does he end up a villain or at least a despicable person in everything? Maybe he just has that look.

            Didn't like

            Something I didn't like was a problem this show is going to have a tough time dealing with.... the implication. The implication of the technology they are creating in the show and how it is dealt with seems like it is going to become a HUGE plot flaw. In this episode two pieces of technology are a focal point and these pieces would change the world forever, but at the end of the episode they just gloss over that fact and move on like that wasn't really a thing. That is quite annoying and I have a feeling it is something this show will have to do every episode because it would be too difficult to explain and maintain the arc of all this created technology now being out there in the world. In the first episodes it was okay because part of the drama was the malfunction of the device. But in this episode there was no malfunction. These were two items that were ready to go out there and change the world forever, but that fact got left out of the final scenes.

            IMDB
            Occurrences of short-term memory loss begin when visiting scientists hit town, and Jack has to determine the cause while not letting down Zoe who is acting in a school play.

              EPISODE 4
              ALIENATED

              Liked

              Meh. This was just a passable episode for me. I like that Erica Cerra got a bit more to do. I like how ridiculous it was that Spencer had this crazy great home theater setup, but all of them were essentially sitting in kitchen table chairs. I like the little bit of germinating overall arc, but I feel like they won't be able to maintain it.

              Didn't like.

              Who had the terrible idea of making Matt Frewer Australian?!?!?!?! It is WAY too gimmicky. Once again we have the development of a device that will change the world forever, swept under the rug of the end credits. Get use to me mentioning that because it will likely be saying it after every episode.

              IMDB
              The presence of a crop circle leads to thoughts of an alien invasion, the future of Eureka is threatened when a congressman visits, and Jo and Jack work on their trust issues.

                EPISODE 5
                INVINCIBLE

                Liked.....
                I really liked this episode, but I might be biased because Saul Rubinek is guest stars in it. I really liked the plot and how it had a bit of a twist I didn't expect. I really liked the twist. If only the show could do that every week. Wrap things up all neat and tidy.

                Didn't like.....
                Well there wasn't much I didn't like other than the fact I WISH they had known WAREHOUSE 13 was coming and Rubinek could have established Artie Nielsen in this series as a crossover. BUT of course there was three years between the two series.

                This does make me REALLY want to watch WAREHOUSE 13 because I did the same thing to that show that I did with this one, stopped after Season One. I think I have said before that Rubinek was my favorite part of that show so this one really pushed that button.

                  EPISODE 6
                  DR. NOBEL

                  Liked....

                  Hmmmm.... This episode was okay. I like what they are doing with Henry even though you have to think around to make it logical. I look at it as he is the smartest person around, so he basically gets to do what he wants.

                  Didn't like....

                  I didn't like how every aspect of this episode was HIGHLY predictable.

                  Why do shows feel they need to include characters like Zoe?! Soooo annoying. I feel that she should be part of the series, maybe two or three times a season. And why would she be surprised by VR tennis after being in a holographic play?

                  And I would have much preferred a bit of a different twist with Eugenia. I liked her character and would have liked to see things go differently, even possibly turn her into a recurring character. Alas I looked and this is her only appearance.

                  Okay, Okay, Okay this might be a bit of a spoiler, so look away. LOL

                  They had better eventually explain how Stark has a Nobel Prize. Fingers crossed he bought it from someone's estate.

                  IMDB
                  After Fargo triggers a device from the Cold War era, the race is on to shut it off before it starts a world war, but the only solution may lie in the depths of a demented scientist's mind.

                    EPISODE 7
                    BLINK

                    Liked....

                    The humor in this one, but I feel they could have done more with it. I do like how much they are including Joe Morton. Can't help but think this series might have been better if he were Jack Carter. I do like how they are playing Stark, though I feel like there has to be a definite good or bad turn eventually. I think I will lose interest if they don't decide he is good or bad. They definitely need to give him more back story, in particular the Nobel thing.

                    Didn't like....

                    This is going to become a common dislike I mention, Zoe. Oh she makes it hard to watch the show. I feel bad for the actress being a part of the show I do not like. I also didn't care for how predictable this was. And I thought it was quite ridiculous that the focus of the research wasn't on what was helping them focus on the research. I feel that discovery was a MUCH bigger deal than a Missile defense system and those involved didn't treat it with nearly the importance it deserved. For real, that was HUGE and was not treated in that manner at all. Shocking plot flaw.

                    IMDB
                    A car accident leads back to scientists at Global, Zoe finds a boyfriend, and Jack tries to drum up support for a town baseball league.

                      Liked.....

                      Hmmmmm.... I thought Stark (Ed Quinn) was REALLY good in this one.

                      Didn't Like.....

                      WAY TOO MUCH ZOE. And overall this was a big fail for me outside of Quinn's performance. The concept was so ridiculous and there was a HUGE plot flaw you could drive a truck through. SPOILER AHEAD..... My Android is acting up and the only way I can deal with it is to destroy my lab to cover up the experiment and release the Android into the world to live its own experiences. SAY WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! It was just too ridiculous. ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–

                      I am REALLY starting to like these characters and this cast. Have to say I am always a sucker for supporting cast. Too bad you don't fit that bill in this show Jordan Danger (AKA Jordan Hinson as ZOE in this show.)

                        Liked.....

                        I think they opened a real can of worms with this episode, but thankfully it was quickly taken care of. On the whole I would say this was a winner.

                        Didn't like....

                        I don't feel the title was very fitting. I also feel like Matt Frewer reaction to what he did to the dog was WAY to subdued. I mean the face of so many things has just possibly been changed forever and he acted like it was an every day occurrence.
