The Best Show You’re Not Watching

Okay, there are several of you in various stages of waiting – Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, Lost.

Trust me now.

You trust me, right? I know you do. (I’m looking at you, OPB, and Torteya.)

Okay, good.

Go rent Eureka. NOW. If you have Netflix, stick it in your queue and bump it to the top. Our friend Chuck gave the first season to Greg as a birthday present, and once we started watching it, we were hooked. I guess if I had to classify it, I’d call it science fiction/comedy, but there’s definitely a serious, darker undertone running through the whole show, which makes it all the more awesome.

The cast is pitch-perfect – I love Zoe Carter and Henry Deacon the very most. The dialogue is excellent, the timing great.

Oh, and you BSG fans? The music (at least in the third season, not sure about the first and second) is done by Bear McCreary.


What the hell are you still doing here?

  1. We just finished Primeval AND we’re currently renting Heroes Season 2. That being said, I’ve heard about Eureka before, and it has always been on my “inner queue” of things to watch. Considered it rented.

    Seriously. You must marry me. Or at least claim me as a distant relative or something. I’ve been watching Eureka since the beginning. I heart you. A. Lot.

    Hmmm. I had thought of watching this show purely on grounds of finding their logo intriguing.

    Sadly, my poor man’s netflix (Hulu) only has the last few episodes, damnit. I suppose a trip to blockbuster is in order.

    If this becomes my nth+1 show I’m addicted to and I can’t miss, there will be hell to pay, Lauren!

    P.S. I should probably make an effort to watch some Dr. Who. (Don’t start the lynch mob!)

    Von, you’ll have to come out to MA to marry me. It’s okay in my state! (Though they probably wouldn’t be so keen on the part where I’m already married…)

    Torteya, you’ll be addicted and you’ll LIKE IT. Also, yes, stop avoiding the Doctor. WTF? There’s nothing to watch between now and, like, April 2009 (unless you’re a Heroes fan. I can’t remember). Start catching up!

    Eureka is awesome.

    Of course, it would have been more awesome had the Sci-Fi channel not elected to show the 1st season out of sequence.
