Eureka – I love this show!
I’ve been watching the second season of Eureka on DVD recently. This series is really so much fun! I especially like that the whole family can enjoy it.
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.
Here is one of my favorite commercials for the show. And no, it’s not normally a musical.
