Save Eureka

We’re big fans of Eureka, and we hated to see it go.

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.

And it brings up some serious discussion about leadership, the arts and sciences, and so on. Enjoy.

#17: Purple Haze

We enjoy the humor (and all-round awesomeness) of Taggart and Allison showing some skin. We note some key moments in Eureka long-term-arc continuity exposed in this episode as well as some killer character development. We get a big kick out of the Fargo/Seth slap fight — and the quite realistic Allison/Bevery showdown. We discuss the […]
