Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
An interesting take on a monster terrorizing the woods around the super-science town of Eureka, which manages - in less than twenty minutes in total - to involve Sheriff Carter, his daughter Zoe, Alison Blake, Stark, Deputy Jo, Fargo and the facility's zoologist Taggart. Kinda fun, but relatively undeveloped given its strictly prescribed temporal barriers (how;s that for Eureka science-speak?. Part monster-flic, part science-experiment gone wrong, part unknown-ending, part - as always, and this is what made Eureka so much fun for its five seasons - humorous. It was a real saving grace of the series that they never took themselves too seriously. Also, this short web-based 'series' was fortunately free from the all-too-serious development of romantic relations which often tended to weigh the series down in the soap-opera-ish fascination of whether or not they would or would not end up together.
