Eureka

 (916)7.92009X-RayTV-14
Syfy Channel's hit dramedy series "Eureka" returns for its third season. A small town with big secrets, Eureka is a community of geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research. What they've unwittingly created is a place where anything imaginable can happen -- and does. With Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) now firmly installed as Eureka's sheriff, there's still much he doesn't know about the goings-on at top secret research facility Global Dynamics, but each time havoc is unleashed, it usually leads Carter back to the lab. Season three delves deeper into the classified, inner-workings of Global Dynamics and continues to explore the intertwined personal relationships of Eureka's colorful and quirky residents.

An excellent intelligent series
Verified purchase
One has to ask why there isn't more science fiction shows like Eureka: It has a great cast of actors who really make you believe that their characters are real and as surreal as the town might seem, even it seems real.

It is what most might consider 'hard science fiction' because the discussion of bosons, charged particles and such are grounded in some well-established science -- it's just that they take it to ridiculous extremes, bounded by how usually sincere people trying to do the right thing create the most preposterous and potentially earth shattering situations. If you overlook some of the obvious "this couldn't really happen" and set aside nit picking, it's a fun romp -- and quite an intelligent one at that. It also has a great many mystery puzzles and 'who done it'. And one wonders if the government really did have a program of scientific research and discovery like this if the real town would be pretty much like the Eureka.

The only downside is Douglas Fargo who really was denied the life he should have had... it's just that his lack of maturity is disturbing (not to mention what happens in season 4).

It has all the elements of good science fiction: Rich saturated color, great story lines, a happy positive 'Star Trek Future' kind of approach. It's not brownish grey and systopian like the current crop of SyFy presentations, replete with alternative future universes where the faux windows overlook the very same scenes as all the dramatic series (as if we don't notice -- what is that? A private joke?).

It's amazing that it ran 5 years when a lot of series don't make it past the second or third season.

It's an excellent job and well worth watching at free odd moments when you have the time.

Wacky, Fun, Silly and Maybe Almost Possible Entertainment
Verified purchase
While on the surface the premise of this show might be considered "absurd" the notion of a secret town full of this country's most brilliant scientist sounds vaguely familiar... i.e: Los Alamos? However, the scientists found in Eureka are to wrapped up with personal problems to concern themselves with successfully building the next A-bomb, or worse.

Thank goodness Eureka's sheriff, who's as far from a scientist one can get, is there. His total lack of scientific knowledge mixed with just the right amount of common sense bumbling, helps Eureka's brainiacs save themselves, the town and sometimes the world from total destruction.

It is a very enjoyable show with elements for all ages.

Possibilities of the future balanced with present moment reality--a really fun experience
Verified purchase
Having not seen this series when it originally came out (wow! where have I been!), I found myself totally enjoying it recently. Surprises abound in this very progressive (???) town. The character portrayals are well done, making this series, in my opinion, an enjoyable blend of humans coexisting with advancing technology. While some of the "experiments" seemed far-fetched, some have actually presented some curious thinking about the possibilities of the future, and by not forgetting the human element, we are brought back to present moment reality with human understanding. I especially enjoyed this balance and found this series to be very enjoyable, and look forward to watching the 2 remaining seasons.

Very Entertaining Show Cut Short
Verified purchase
Amazing show that still had so much potential and was ended before it was suppose to. The show is exciting and gets better with each episode. Although the concepts are far fetched they are based on theoretical ideas which allows from some very creative writing and leaves you pondering about the possibilities. The characters are likable and have developed well although they jump around with the romantic connection between the various characters. This show is great to watch again and was an original gem.

Eureka - love it!
Verified purchase
Eureka Season 3 was exciting and captured my interest with its imaginative and wonderfully outlandish stories. In Season 3, the characters take on more responsibility, new characters are introduced, and we're diverted by intriguing plots. As a sci fi fantasy with humor, it is great entertainment. Must admit, Season 3, Episode 4 "I Do Over" left me feeling stunned.

I love watching Eureka and am in season 4 at the moment. When Eureka first aired, I missed it due to working most of the time. but am enjoying the entire series.

Excellent Fun Show
Verified purchase
Eureka was an excellent show. Too good for the SciFi channel, which summarily cancelled it without much notice. Had the SciFi channel continued it, we would have many more excellent episodes to enjoy. But - oh hey - then we wouldn't have all those endlessly boring shows about people who wanna be a sci-fi makup artist or - even better - wrestling - which is fiction, but not sci-fi by any stretch.

One of the few "wholesome" shows today
Verified purchase
This is a good show with interesting and ever changing story lines. There is also a good bit of variety in the characters with some coming in and out for the different stories with the core characters staying the same. What I really like is that the story lines teach good lessons and they do not need to be done with "edgy" language, dress, etc. that seems to have flooded prime time TV. Don't get me wrong, that has its place and can be entertaining but some shows today resort to that for the entertainment vs. the story.

If you like scifi
Verified purchase
I like science fiction, have since childhood. Granted some scifi is low budget & crappy. Others done in good taste & are great.
I love Eureka because the writers show creativity & imagination. They are very good at it in my opinion. I have watched 3 seasons of eureka through Amazon. I will sit & watch 2-4 episodes in a row. Haven't seen an episode I don't like. Am looking forward to watching the rest of the seasons that are available.. I'm going to go out on a limb & say, if your a Star Trek fan you'll love Eureka.
