I started to watch Eureka after watching all the similar shows, shows that have taken more than one or two elements from this series: Haven, Warehouse 13, Alphas... and I like it, but sometimes I have the feeling that the actors are way above the lines they have to say, and the story they have to act. In the case of "Maneater" the flaws are so obvious that it hurts.

The idea of Carter being the sexual fantasy of all the town is a good one, as it allows for a lot of comical scenes and wisely discards any sexual tension with Lupo. One of the problems is that this was done in a Buffy episode, where Xander did some kind of magic and caused that all the girls in town became crazy in love with him. That episode was funny but also consistent with the characters, and that is something this episode lacks. First: heterosexuality, only? Really? Is there any kind of laziness there or just suggesting that there may be homosexual relations or attractions in Eureka is too risky? Second: the intermittent daughter, who appears in some episodes to make the family drama subplots - mostly very weak - and who does not appear in episodes like this one and no one talks about her ever, like she didn't even exist. Third: the episode is absolutely on rails, twists are predicable and presented with such grandiloquence that it is very ridiculous. At the end everything is carried out without any fun, any wit, anything, so, why bother doing a sexual centered episode if you are so mild? The only interesting thing is the obvious tension between the story's possibilities and the script writing. But the script is clumsy enough to be unable to suggest anything.

This, and other annoying things in the series, like the unbelievable beauty - and comfortable beauty, understand me, as their body language contradicted their focus at work - of all the town inhabitants - excluding the asexual bartender - Carter being said to not exercise when the visual evidence shows the opposite, Carter's daughter dating the supposedly nerdiest of the class when he's obviously the hottest and most intelligent of them all... It's like the series is taking us as dumbs, or if it tries to touch a lot of topics being unable to do so. Let's see how it evolves.
