I came to this series with no expectations as all I had read were a few reviews and watched a couple of clips on YouTube. I am so glad I gave it a chance. It is like a breath of fresh air amongst all the remakes and re-imaginings that are appearing these days. It has a simple premise, a good cast, and engaging scripts. The plots of each story, while borrowing ideas from other shows, feel fresh and new and come over very much as tributes not rep offs.
The residents of Eureka are a wacky bunch that you can't help but grow to like. The technobabble is presented with tongue firmly planted in cheek. But most of all the show is very well rounded in that it has something for everyone, there's action, romance, comedy, Sci-Fi, and a little titillation but it can be watched by all the family.
