Save Eureka

We’re big fans of Eureka, and we hated to see it go. We created these podcasts in the hopes of changing SyFy’s mind about Eureka’s cancellation, but ended up at least sendingĀ Eureka off in style by discussing each new episode (old ones, too!) and sharing what makes the show so special to us. You’ll find enjoyment and analysis of each Eureka episode here as well as cast interviews and a great wrap-up after Eureka’s bittersweet finale.

#42: S05E09 Smarter Carter

We explore some heady questions, like what qualities make a person valuable in Eureka, whether intelligence is really inversely proportionate to “heart,” and why the town as a whole should develop a broader appreciation of human traits (instead of just the “genius gene”). We appreciate the humor (as always), riffing on Deputy Andy and S.A.R.A.H. […]

#41: S05E08 In Too Deep

We draw similarities between this week’s episode and the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode Hard Time, in which aliens alter O’Brien’s memory to simulate him serving time in jail.

#40: S05E07 Ex Machina

We note the Panop’s similarity to Bentham’s (and later Foucault’s) panopticon. We discuss Jo’s character growth which leads her to her leap forward in this episode (and Shaw as a tool to expose that growth). We speculate on the limits to man/machine relationships. We dive into the leadership qualities of various heads of GD and […]

#39: S05E06 Worst Case Scenario

We enjoy the expression of Zane and Fargo’s new (awesome) relationship. We talk through Jo’s insecurity as a root cause of her unpredictable behavior — and speculate on her hairstyle as a subtle indicator of mood. We wonder about Holly and question whether or not she’s really there. We ponder what Holly’s situation makes us […]

#38: S05E05 Jack of All Trades

It’s classic bodyswap action this week on Eureka, and we get a kick out of watching the show’s awesome actors take turns playing… each other. We dish on Jo’s fickleness and its effect on Zane. We wonder what will come of Grace and recall all the various hell she’s suffered through over the last few […]
