A newly hired Sheriff reports for duty in the small, bucolic Pacific Northwest town of Eureka and soon discovers that it is not what it seems. For years, the government has been relocating the world's geniuses (and their families) to this small town, creating the ultimate think-tank community in which strange, amazing, and bizarre things happen as the quirky inhabitants unleash scientific & technological creations still unknown by the outside world.

This is one of my favorite shows, which is saying something because I am quite persnickety on my TV watching. The cast does a fabulous job with their scientist characters dealing with the complexities of Eureka. I also am a huge fan of showing science elevated to the point that it is highlighted as a great career choice instead of traditional job roles on most TV shows. SYFY did a great job with this show although my favorite seasons are the older not the newer as much.

Season 1: This Show Is Fun
Verified purchase
My wife and I have been watching the show on Prime for months now. We'd watch the show straight thru, finish and start over with the pilot. To say that we've been looking forward to getting the inside scoop and the commentaries to the episodes would be a vast understatement and S1 did NOT disappoint. Cast members are involved in every single episode commentary making it very entertaining. Colin Fergeson does one episode by himself and it was hilarious!!!

We have since bought Seasons 2 and 3 and will be getting S4 and 5 before the end of the month.

A great show!
Verified purchase
We've watched this many times, all the way through. This is another "they don't make them like this anymore" kind of show.
It's mostly family friendly, it's funny and entertaining and lovable.
I just wish it had lasted longer and ended better.

One of my all time top 5 favorite shows. Watching it again with my Tweener has been just as much a thrill as it was the first time around. (There are a few gross outs and sexual innuendo. If your Tweener isn't on the mature side, you might want to wait a bit. I think it's rated PG-13.) These story lines are fresh and interesting. There is no laugh track needed, you'll be in stitches at least twice just in the pilot episode. The dialog is extremely quick and witty, and the characters so well developed that it's impossible to pick favorites. We love them all for their distinct personalities and quirks, so familiar already, that we can guess their reactions to certain situations, if not their words. We love it when we guess wrong, we love it when we guess right. It's light and fun, but it does create curiosity and does provoke thoughtful discussion from time to time. All in all, this is what television entertainment SHOULD be. If it were more often the case, I might actually watch more than twice a year. For now though, on to season two with many thanx to writers, producers, directors, cast and crew. EXCELLENT show!

'To be continued' episodes are the best ones! Don't miss if you like quirky sci-fi!
Verified purchase
Quirky humor mixed with pretty legit sci-fi. Great acting! The actors and actresses really get comfortable with each other and in later seasons do an amazing job at 'switching body' acting, you can tell how well they know each others characters. Some episodes are better than others. Like, much better. The 'to be continued' episodes are the best. 5 stars for those episodes. Other episodes are hit or miss between 3-5 stars.

Quirky and fun
Verified purchase
I had forgotten how fun a series this had been until I bought Season 1 on a whim. Sure, they did get into some pseudo-science stuff but it's all fun (we all pretty much use the full capacity of our brains, not just 10%--except maybe in Washington, D.C.). The characters are a good mix. Just plain fun to watch.

The best series ever put out by the Wrestling Channel...I mean the SY-FY Channel
Verified purchase
The very first time I tried to watch this on the SY-FY channel I couldn't finish the pilot episode. I don't remember why but I suspect it had more to do with my frame of mind than the show because... eventually I got a second chance and not only watched the entire episode but I was totally hooked. The characters are great, appealing, funny and believable.The situations they get into are funny and mostly well-thought out. The setting, fictional Eureka Oregon, is beautiful and made me want to move there. I have watched the first 4 seasons repeatedly. Sometimes I play them as background as I cook. Sometimes I need a little mood lift, a feel good, and most of the episodes from the first 4 seasons are perfect for that.
If your only experience with Eureka is from Season 5 on Amazon then you are really really missing out. In my opinion that is the least enjoyable season. It always seems to throw a monkey wrench into a good show when the writers/producers run out of ideas and inevitably someone has to pop out a kid. In this case its Dr Allison Blake. And I wasn't at all thrilled with the whole Titan/Astraeus mission.

A quote from Lise Meitner mentioned in Season 1
Verified purchase
"The discovery of nuclear fission by Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann opened up a new era in human history. It seems to me that what makes the science behind this discovery so remarkable is that it was achieved by purely chemical means". She was highly instrumental in the development of nuclear fission, but she did not invent it.
