When Allison’s (Salli […]Read On »

Stars: Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Erica Cerra, Neil Grayston, Niall Matter, Felicia Day, Roger Cross, Christopher Gauthier Writer: Kira Snyder, series created by Andrew Cosby & Jaime Paglia Director: Michael Robison Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: June 11, 2012 Usually on EUREKA, several storylines either converge, with the characters trying to figure out how the diverse elements are adding up to this week’s looming catastrophe, or else the plot threads unspool separately. “Ex-Machina” is unusual for the series in that the entire episode is all about one thing: the efforts of Fargo (Neil Grayston) and […]Read On »

And Jack (Colin Ferguson) had just figured out that Wen was behind the removal. In “Force Quit,” the key is to find out […]Read On »

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 »

In “Glimpse,” Jo (Erica Cerra) and Zane (Niall Matter) are grappling with their relationship – with Jo wanting to call things off even though they’ve had six weeks of “last times” – and Jack (Colin Ferguson) and Allison (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) are dealing with more subtle nuances of their romance.
