    And you are getting me to want to re-watch Eureka.

    How is Sanctuary? Being a fan of Amanda Tapping from watching SG1 I have thought of watching it.

    Episode 2.10
    GOD IS IN THE DETAILS

    IMDB Synopsis: Zoe and her friends lose their voices, but whatever is causing the symptoms has an even worse effect on Allison and her only hope comes from an unusual source.

    LIKED:
    I would say all things considered a middle of the road episode, but l leaned away from it. I can't say I really liked much of it other than having Teryl Rothery as a guest star.

    DIDN'T LIKE:
    I just didn't really enjoy this one. I felt the plot escalation didn't really fit the circumstances, but as stated there was more going on than was being shown. I guess they just didn't do a great job of getting that idea across or I just wasn't in the mood.

    I can say that one thing that turned me off was what happened with Jo's character. She just seemed slightly off character for her.

    And I can't say I'm thrilled with where they are going with Kevin's character at this point.
    We're talking borderline magic here. I think I would be okay with it if they had done a better job working up to it, but the fact that Stark just brought him in and expected him to magically heal Allison put me off.


    So this isn't really a memorable one for me, which is a shame because I really like Teryl Rothery and I wish she had been in a more memorable episode.

    After my very profound search for subtitles (amazon.com, amaton.co.uk, amazon.fr, amazon.de) I finally did reach success!
    Scroll down to: "Untertitel: : Deutsch, Englisch"

    But Attention: it's PAL!!
    And what about transportation?

    Thanks for the suggestion! I ordered it right away. I am one of those European types so PAL is often my color scheme of choice. And nowadays with Brexit and all it is much cheaper to ship from Germany than from both the US and UK unfortunately.

    It has been a while since I watched Eureka. But it was a fun show. Yes it went all over the place sometimes, but mostly it was entertaining. And had many fun guest actors. Tamlyn Tomita was an extra bonus. I have not seem Warehouse 13 yet. Am trying to find a subtitled version at the moment.

    EPISODE 2.9
    SIGHT UNSEEN

    Invisibility makes an appearance in Eureka.

    LIKED.....
    This was a pretty middle of the road episode. I did like the effects and always the humor.
    I did like the stuff about the legality of invisibility. It will be interesting to see if the laws they mention come up again because I know they will do episodes on the other subjects they said had treaties.


    DIDN'T LIKE.....
    The relationship stuff. I see no reason to introduce any romance stuff into this show. LOL

    This episode just didn't strike me as a favorite.

    EPISODE 2.8
    E=MC...?

    IMDB Synopsis When Allison puts a newly hired, but criminal, genius in Jack's care he's less than pleased, but then an accident in a lab causes most of GD to lose their smarts, and he may be the only one with the solution.

    LIKED....
    The humor in this episode was good. I really loved what happened to everyone and how that got related to Carter. 😁

    DIDN'T LIKE.....
    I HATE gimmicky characters!!!!!! At first I thought this new character was going to fill a necessary void (I don't recall any of the main characters claiming to be a computer expert. Different characters have done things that require computer expertise, but none of the main characters have really claimed that as their field.) Then it turned out he was a particle physicist not a computer expert - or he is both. IDK. I HATE gimmicky characters!!!!! 😑

    🀬
    Oooooooo I'm a rebel particle physicist expert hacker super genius pretty boy who lives by my own set of rules. I've got a criminal record, but that is because I am like Robin Hood. OMG I hate gimmicky characters!!!!!! I mean every character has a gimmick. I just hate the ones that appear they came in a studio memo. I hope I like the character because I hate the background setup.

    AND the best part of the episode came in two parts. The first part was when I believe Henry said to Carter that he must feel like this all the time. The second part was when Stark's RC car broke. LOL

    EPISODE 2.7
    FAMILY REUNION

    Fargo's Grandfather is found mysteriously frozen in Cryo-Stasis after 50 years and the gang has to figure out how and why. LOL 😁

    LIKED.....
    I think I'm falling in love with Jo (Erica Cerra) LOL. I enjoyed most of this episode, .....

    DIDN'T LIKE.....
    ..... but I didn't really like the way they used the plot. I felt like they could have done more with it than they did. And I have no clue what was really their point with the "B" plot.

    I guess it was supposed to teach Zoe a lesson, but I just felt it was unnecessary. I don't know. It rubbed me wrong.


    Having said that is still a good addition to Season 2. I would say a bit weaker episode, but this season is still shaping up well. πŸ˜€πŸ‘

    EPISODE 2.6
    NOCHE DE SUENOS

    (Partial) IMDB Synopsis: Groups of people begin sharing dreams in some embarrassing and conflicting ways.

    LIKED.....
    I liked almost everything about this episode.

    DISLIKED.....
    Carter's reaction while being decontaminated.
    The guy was naked in front of several people he is close to and he didn't react like someone whom is suddenly naked in front of several people he knows. It was VERY poorly done. Carter constantly acts awkward, but this time where that should have been off the charts he just stood there. It made no sense.


    The other minor thing I would say was I wish they had done more dream stuff, but what they did was fantastic.

    Overall another winner. I have to be honest I did not think I was going to like this show as much as I am, so I hope it continues.

    EPISODE 2.5
    DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE

    IMDB Synopsis: Debris starts raining down on Eureka on the day of the school's science fair.

    LIKED.....
    I REALLY enjoyed this episode. Twenty minutes in I might have said it was my favorite episode, but then it lost a little steam. Honestly I loved so much of the stuff early in this episode, but that tapered off by the end and it ended up being just an above average episode.

    (I feel a bit of shame in admitting this, but I actually liked Zoe in this episode.)

    DIDN'T LIKE.....
    The stuff the the geese seemed forced and unnecessary.

    I really got the impression that they had Frewer contracted for an episode and this is what they came up with.
    It wasn't bad. It just felt a bit shoved in.

    On the whole Season Two is shaping up quite nicely. I am really getting into this show.

    EPISODE 2.4
    GAMES PEOPLE PLAY

    B5 GUEST STAR SIGHTING (kind of) TAMLYN TOMITA (Uncredited). Henry watches footage of her on a screen. This is likely going to keep happening this season so I am not going to mention it again unless there is something new with her.

    People in Eureka start to disappear and Sheriff Carter seems to be the only person whom notices or remembers.

    LIKED.....
    They really like to give Ed Quinn good lines. S.A.R.A.H. gets hands down the highlight of the season in the episode with her musical ambiance moment.

    DIDN'T LIKE.....
    This was not my favorite episode. It was passable and it did have it's moments. As a matter of fact the S.A.R.A.H. musical interlude definitely makes the Top 5 moments in the series as of right now, but on the whole this one was HIGHLY predictable and a bit too over the top in some regards - for instance the large crowd in the waiting room scene just seemed like too much. I understand it served a purpose, but yeah it didn't seem believable.

    Very disappointed this was Oliva D'Abo's final appearance. It makes ZERO sense that Dr. Abby Carter is not in this series again. I am going to assume she comes back later as a different actor, is referenced but never seen, or they kill her off.

    And I also don't feel like the title of the episode fit that well. I'm not saying it didn't fit at all, but it just didn't feel to me it fit what happened enough to judge it as the title of the episode.

    EPISODE 2.3
    UNPREDICTABLE

    IMDB SYNOPSIS: A surprise visitor disrupts Jack and Zoe's lives; strange weather must be tracked to its source before it becomes an "ice funnel of death."

    LIKED.....
    I really liked most of this episode. BEST SCENE STEAL goes to Ed Quinn - Cafe Diem scene. I really like what they do with Stark and Carter. I loved seeing David Nykl in this, but it was far too brief. LOVED that Henry seemed a bit more back to normal.

    DIDN'T LIKE.....
    Well I am guessing you can imagine I didn't really care for the stuff with "The Carters". And Zoe seemed very different. I don't know if it is just her hair or if she is actually thinner than she has been, which doesn't seem possible. I just know there were a couple of times I questioned if it was even the same actress. It was very strange.

    I really hate it when scripts create drama where there should be none. Unless they want us to think Dr. Abby Carter is so completely self-absorbed that she is a danger to herself. It is one thing to have scenes where an spouse or ex-spouse is giving grief for using work as a defense against dealing with their issues. Happens in fiction and reality all of the time, but to have them literally involved in the crisis that is distracting the person from dealing with their issues and still giving them grief is just crazy. So we, the audience, are to believe Dr. Abby Carter is crazy.
