Magnificent, Beyond Magnificent

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I would be hard-pressed to truly say what a bad episode of Eureka might be.

For example, let's suppose the recent season, where five characters are placed back in time, then return to an altered future as well as a character from the past joining them there, was a bad season.

Or, simply say the Frances Fisher season was not the best one so far.

Wouldn't matter. Like any show, the situation has to evolve, the characters have to grow.

What makes Eureka unique is the scientific underlying, even when there is more fiction involved.

A bad moment would truly be a decision I just couldn't abide, and without a doubt, that was the death of Kim.

And undeniably, the reason for hating to see Kim killed off was Before I Forget.

Truthfully, I suppose there was no way to deliver compensation to what we learned had taken place with Kim in this episode, so she essentially had to be done away with.

At first glance, it appeared Kim was an Asian stereotype with her braininess, but then the entire town is made up of scientists, so she was hardly alone.

Unquestionably, it was her solving of the events that truly drove her home and made her a compelling figure (again, hated she was killed off several episodes later).

Kim held her own, no doubt about it, but the episode had another brain at work; Sheriff Carter himself.

Carter makes stupid work. He doesn't know what is going on, but still he outsmarts his own not knowing.

Even when he doesn't know if what he is saying is true, he is still brilliant.

The dialogue Carter delivers to the silent Jason is striking, as Carter doesn't know what has gone on, so he is just going to let Jason reveal himself.

And then there is Jason, the sensational emptiness we all long to be. Jason believed his own fradulent establishment and saw it all crash around him in mere seconds.

Would have been fun to know what happened to this guy.

But even then, he was outsmarted by Kim. Sharp as a laser removing a tattoo, she knew there was greater revenge in letting him live with humiliation than out and out killing him.
