A 42-minute long ad for Subaru
16 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Normally, this is a fun show, but this particular episode was essentially a 42-minute long ad for Subaru. I don't like product placements, but I realize they're a fact of life on goofy shows like Eureka. But the writers didn't even try to veil the ad; they wrote a plot line that was specifically designed to show off Subaru's XYZ (or whatever it was), even to the point of having several characters covet it with ooohhs and aaahhs. Gross.

But aside from the fact that I feel dirty just having watched this stinker of an episode, it wasn't even good sci-fi. The idea of the town's kids building some sort of space machine by gluing office chairs to typewriters is stupid to say the least. Is Eureka now a Saturday morning cartoon? I haven't expected much from Eureka other than a little fun once a week, but this episode really turned me off the series.
