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 »

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 »
