Trivia

In the last scene where Jack is shaving in the restroom of the sheriff's office, he is wearing the new badge shown in the series, not the one worn by Sheriff Cobb and Deputy Jo Lupo in the pilot. This scene was probably added after the series was picked up for the first year for continuity. See more »

Goofs

In all episodes in all season that Lupo is working for the town as a deputy sheriff, she has a revolver as a service weapon. However, her utility belt has two cases for clips for an automatic weapon as her reloads. That is, she carries a revolver while carrying clips for reloading the revolver, which is not possible.

Not too bad, not too good
3 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

The pilot for Eureka was watchable, had some good performances, a bit of interesting dialog, and maybe one or two interesting ideas. But considering the promising premise of a whole town full of super-scientists, I thought they squandered the concept terribly. So much more could have been done with the idea. Most sci-fi can be divided into stories that are science-friendly, and stories that are skeptical of science. The best sci-fi is invariably the former, but unfortunately the majority of commercial sci-fi tends to be the latter, and so is this show. The main science guy is an unlikeable jerk, and in a questionable effort to be realistic, it's all tied in with the military. The protagonist is a U.S. Marshall who's apparently supposed to be the voice of reason in this world of crazy science. The sympathy is clearly with him, whereas none of the scientists can really be trusted (except possibly Joe Morton's character, which is one of the few touches of real class this show has - another is cool soldier girl Jo Lupo).

Like I said, this show could have been a hell of a lot better. There's not much actual or interesting science in it, and nothing else is original either. I'll give it a few more episodes to improve, but if it doesn't, I'm gone.

6 out of 10.
