Eureka Returns Tonight!

Eureka returns tonight on the Sci-Fi network!  I really enjoy this show… and so should you!  While I haven’t seen every episode, the ones I have were a real hoot.  The series is funny, smart, sometimes sexy, and always entertaining.  There is a brief interview over at io9 with Colin Ferguson and co-creator Jamie Paglia about these upcoming episodes.

If you’ve never seen the series, it’s really fun and worth checking out.  It’s sort of popcorn-Sci-Fi, or a gateway drug to real Science Fiction.  Even my non-geek wife enjoys the show.  It’s about a high tech community located in the Pacific Northwest that is inhabited entirely by brilliant scientists working on new scientific advancements for the United States government that frequently go disastrously awry. While there is a great cast, the main protagonist is Sheriff Jack Carter.  Carter, a former U.S. Marshal that reluctantly took the position of Sheriff, serves as the “regular guy” on the show so that we the viewers can connect.  He is consistently dumbfounded by the wonders Eureka produces, as well as their propensity to produce things that often threaten the entire town, if not the world.

Be sure to check out tonight’s episode at 9pm Eastern on Sci-Fi.  For more on the show, check out the Sci-Fi website by clicking here. If you want to watch some previous episodes, you can check out several for free on by clicking here.

Below is a preview Sci-Fi released about Eureka moving to Friday nights.  It definitely gives you a flavor for the series.

I also had to include one of my favorite bits.  The creators of the Eureka series did several fake public service announcements.  You can find all of them on the Eureka Season One DVD.  Here is one of my favorites.
