Here is a show that celebrates genius and being smart, but also respects each character’s gifts. It is one of the most diverse shows on television, with two African Americans in prominent roles as scientists, including one woman. And women here are just […]Read On »

EUREKA can now proudly join that select company with its fourth-year Christmas special, “Do […]Read On »

Meanwhile, Fargo (Neil […]Read On »

Stars: Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Erica Cerra, Neil Grayston, Niall Matter, Tembi Locke, Kavan Smith, Felicia Day, Trevor Jackson, Debrah Farantino Writer: Amy Berg Director: Matt Hastings Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 8 PM Airdate: July 18, 2011 Episodes of EUREKA can approach THE USUAL SUSPECTS in structural complexity, with a lot of individual actions affecting one another until calamity erupts. This is the case in “Reprise,” which is both entertaining and suspenseful – and also intentionally very funny. When visiting Department of Defense scientist Holly (Felicia Day) hits town, she is clearly hyper-bright but also so nervously chatty […]Read On »

Despite the long time the show has been gone (barring the Christmas special), “Liftoff” is actually the beginning of the second half of Season Four, rather than the premiere of Season Five. As such, it begins on a cheery note, with just about all of the main characters in a state of reasonable contentment. The first note […]Read On »

TV Review: EUREKA – Season 4 – “O Little Town”

From its one-off holiday title sequence to the series-specific jokes about fruitcake (and of course the fruitcake does come to menace the town’s inhabitants), “O Little Town” is a uniquely EUREKA Christmas episode. Some plot elements are a bit too wacky even for EUREKA, which is why we get the framing device of Jack (Colin Ferguson) telling four cynical snowbound kids of a Yuletide when it was unseasonably sweltering in Eureka. The town’s electromagnetic shield has gone haywire, trapping everybody inside. Taggart (Matt Frewer) is visiting town in an actual flying sleigh, determined to find Santa, while at Global Dynamics, an energy project gone amok and Taggart’s gift-shrinking technology are causing the town to get smaller and smaller. On the upside, there’s a Secret Santa running around, giving everyone the perfect present. Who can it be? Maybe … Santa?
