4.0 out of 5 stars Yeah that can't be good 19 Nov 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Upon discovering the answer to a now-legendary problem, Archimedes famously yelled "Eureka!" ("I have found it!"), jumped out of his bath, and ran naked through the streets.

So "Eureka" seems like an appropriate name for the Sci-Fi Channel's quirky, well-written sci-fi series, all about a tiny town that brims over with geniuses and scientific breakthroughs. A few of the storylines are draggy, but the series also has some great acting, brilliant dilemmas, and mysteries that promise to fuel future seasons.

While dragging his delinquent daughter back to L.A., Marshal Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) accidentally crashes the car. The only nearby place is the picture-perfect small-town of Eureka. But Jack starts to suspect that Eureka is a little odd -- a woman making triangular bubbles, a quartet of clones, and a little autistic boy making physics equations on the sidewalk are only a few of the oddities.

His suspicions are confirmed when random places get blasted to ashes, including a cowfield and an RV. So Jack is told Eureka's secret -- it's a town entirely inhabited by geniuses, set up by the government to create new scientific advances. But a scientist has done a little project all on his own, producing a tachyon accelerator -- which is ripping the seams out of the universe.

Because the sheriff was badly injured by the accelerator, D.O.D. representative Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) makes Jack the new sheriff of Eureka. Now he has a new job, a "smart house" in an old nuclear bunker, and a trigger-happy deputy who loves her guns.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eerie Idaho 13 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
Watching this series immediately transported me back to 1989 when I used to regularly tune in to little-remembered quirky Sci-fi series Eerie Indiana - The Complete Series [DVD]. The small town with the weird secret is an idea that the creators of Eureka have latched onto once more, and like its predecessor this is an addictively offbeat drama with some subtle comedy and a host of memorable characters.

The pilot episode introduces everyman US Marshal Jack Carter (played with a light touch by Colin Ferguson) as he transports a wayward teenager along an isolated stretch of road; Carter inadvertently arrives in the strange town of Eureka where he destined to stay. A secret military project is at the heart of Eureka's isolation, and Carter soon finds himself up against Greg Germann's oily scientist as he attempts to unravel events surrounding the mysterious disappearance of a local boy and his father's bizarre experiments. Germann is a welcome presence whom you may remember as unctuous lawyer Richard Fish in Ally McBeal; sadly he disappears after the pilot and is replaced by the equally oily but far less interesting Dr Nathan Stark. Joe Morton, another familiar big-screen face, is excellent as town jack-of-all-trades Dr Henry Deacon, and Erica Cerra makes her presence felt as firearms-obsessed Deputy Jo Lupo, whose abrasive manner and lack of social skills lead to her and Jack clashing regularly.

Although there are a few minor inconsistencies between episodes; a result of them being transmitted in a slightly different order from which they were made, the series flows nicely and the town's residents grow more interesting as the show goes on. The blend of light humour, Sci-fi shenanigans and intrigue works brilliantly, and watching this is the perfect way to unwind after a long stressful day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to the old series 19 Feb 2011
By LUIS
Format:DVD
i found myself buying a lot of series i used to watch years back - eureka falls into that category

cheap non-credible digital effects, simple characters with very simple stories, easy to follow episodes and enjoyable storyline and character development

unfortunately, the series are so easy to follow that i've gone through season 1 very quickly and hoping season 2 will last until the end of the weekend

the ingredients and the way the story is put together isn't anything new: good-intentions dad trying to make things right with small delinquent daughter after moving to a new town (following a "promotion") - the only reason you don't hate the always-mess-up-dad's-actions is because, in the end, he behaves the way a proper/former u.s.
