    EPISODE 4.2
    A NEW WORLD

    IMDB SYNOPSIS: The gang returns from 1947 and discover that things are not as they remember them. And Dr. Grant came along.

    LIKED.....
    I admit that I really enjoy this concept just because it has shaken things up so much and is more of a long run crisis rather than pure crisis of the week. LOVE that Zane is back to being someone I can enjoy not liking instead of a guy I'm supposed to like.

    DIDN'T LIKE.....
    While I admitted above that I enjoy what the show is currently doing I have to admit I am equally not a fan of how it has just given them an excuse to play with emotional entanglements. The only one that matters to me is Allison and Kevin.

    So I am getting more enjoyment from the show at this point, but don't get any hopes up. I was sailing with love for Season Three at this point and that took a nose dive within a few episodes. But we'll see.

      EPISODE 4.3
      ALL THE RAGE

      Partial IMDB Synopsis: Wil Wheaton guest stars as Dr. Isaac Parrish, an underappreciated scientist whose hostility appears to have gone viral.

      LIKED.....
      Wil Wheaton Guest Starring. The premise was decent enough. I like how Fargo says "Does anything in this lab actually do what is supposed to do?" That is basically the plot of so many Eureka episodes.

      DISLIKED.....
      Would have liked more Wheaton.

      Why does this show insist on soooo much interpersonal romantic relationship focus?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

      Anyway, decent episode. Surprising this new plot line isn't more dramatic. It is like they are telling the same stories only slightly minor character dynamic shifts.

        EPISODE 4.4
        THE STORY OF O2

        IMDB Synopsis: Allison deals with a major problem during Eureka's space week festival.

        (LOVE HOW SHORT AND APPLICABLE TO SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY EPISODES THAT SYNOPSIS IS.)

        LIKED.....
        I enjoyed this one. Another name guest star, Jamie Kennedy. It seemed to really hit all the notes well.

        DISLIKED.....
        (I'm not even going to write anything. The stuff I didn't enjoy was short enough that it was easy to sit through.)

        So I would say the last two have been pretty okay. And one improving on the other.

        The reason I posted twice, I thought I had already said something about Episode Three.

          EPISODE 4.5
          CROSSING OVER

          WAREHOUSE 13 CROSSOVER

          IMDB SYNOPSIS: Claudia Donovan pays a visit to Eureka, hoping to see some amazing technological wonders. She gets more than she bargained for when seemingly random objects begin appearing around town. Working with Sheriff Carter and Fargo, Claudia has to help solve the mystery before the strange anomalies have deadly consequences...particularly for newcomer Dr. Grant.

          LIKED.....
          Another one I enjoyed. I think James Callis has been a good addition. Allison Scagliotti was a good crossover choice.

          DIDN'T LIKE......
          The ridiculous idea that Claudia Donovan would have a thing for Fargo. Talk about forced. Kind of wish it had been more involved with Warehouse 13, but still it wasn't just a cameo.

          So I would have preferred a crossover with Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek), but Claudia is not a bad choice. I enjoyed the episode. Hope they can keep this up.

            EPISODE 4.6
            MOMSTROSITY

            IMDB SYNOPSIS: Allison accepts Carter's offer to include Kevin in a camping trip for some guy time, and Henry decides to level with Grace while a very peculiar -- and dangerous -- relationship threatens Eureka and the not-so-happy campers.

            LIKED.....
            I liked this one for the most part. I think the stuff with Henry might have worked the best. The camping trip was a good idea.

            DIDN'T LIKE.....
            I thought the Carter/Grant stuff was a bit forced, but everything about that relationship has seemed force for a purpose that will I'm sure conclude at the end of the season with the inevitable . The A.I. stuff was kind of meh.

            I think they missed a real opportunity by not having Lupo on the camping trip. I think they could have really used her training as a counter weight to Fargo's pampered setup. All and all a decent episode. Glad the stuff with Henry finally happened.

              EPISODE 4.7
              STONED

              IMDB SYNOPSIS (Partial): Romantic relationships are in flux.

              LIKED.....
              Despite the RED FLAG of that partial IMDB Synopsis, there were parts of this episode I really enjoyed - at least a couple. Firstly I will spoil that there is a Musical Number and I greatly enjoyed cringing through the whole thing. Second I absolutely loved the predictable ending with Dr Grant.

              DIDN'T LIKE.....
              About 90% of this episode was just relationship NONSENSE that was a waste of my time. And it was a total missed opportunity involving the MOST CRINGE-WORTHY thing Eureka has ever done. I have no clue what they were thinking or why, but Zoe is back and she helped serve it up.

              On the whole I can see why some would find this episode appealing. I was going to rank it pretty low until the Grant stuff paid off at the end.

                EPISODE 4.8
                THE EX-FILES

                IMDB SYNOPSIS: As Grace (Tembi Locke) finds a way to share her memories with Henry (Joe Morton), the rest of Eureka's citizens face the return of people from the recent - or not so recent - past.

                SPOILER GUEST STAR FOLLOWS!!!!!!

                LIKED.....
                The return of a certain guest star Ed Quinn. He did not disappoint. Honestly if you broke the entire episode down to only his scenes it would be one of the best episodes in a long time. 😁

                DIDN'T LIKE.....
                This episode had ONE redeeming quality - the return of Ed Quinn. The premise really wasn't bad and the comedic parts were wonderful, but that still doesn't mean I would need to see this one again. As I've said before, their insistence in focusing on interpersonal relationships just ruined this show. 🙄

                The episode wasn't bad. They had a lot of fun with the concept. I still can't say it is a redeeming episode. When I started I was hoping this show would be a keeper, but it has not proven itself and at this stage there seems to be no chance of redemption.

                  EPISODE 4.9
                  I'LL BE SEEING YOU

                  IMDB SYNOPSIS: Mid-Season Finale Closer than they've ever been before, Allison (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) and Carter (Colin Ferguson) join forces personally as well as professionally when Jo (Erica Cerra) and Fargo (Neil Grayston) enlist them to help find a stolen Global Dynamics project.

                  LIKED.....
                  Honestly this episode would have blown my mind if they just rolled with it, but they didn't.

                  DIDN'T LIKE......
                  Let's just say if you were watching Eureka for reasons other than I am watching Eureka this might have been your favorite episode. Since I am not watching Eureka for those reasons it was definitely not a favorite episode.

                  This isn't a bad episode, but when the intensity lacks real weight it isn't very intense. When you know something they have done will be immediately undone because of the softness of the show then it is very meh. I do like some of the plot elements they are playing with so I didn't hate the episode or anything. Just another of many that could have/should have been better than they are, but clearly the entire series was misguided.

                  I am growing quite concerned about my next choice, Warehouse 13. If these shows are connected I am worried. But you don't worry I have given up any plans to write about it. This exercise has proven to be a colossal waste of time and effort on my part as well as you the reader whom is not reading this. The show has had a lot of fun moments and most episodes have fun moments, but overall the series to date could have been so much more than it is. I'm worried this opinion is going to hold true for Warehouse 13 as well.

                    HEY!! I'm reading! But sadly, I'd lost track of the show so I'm not familiar enough with it to comment. I have enjoyed them, though.
