Storyline

With the help of Albert Einstein and other trusted advisors, President Harry S. Truman commissioned a top-secret residential development in a remote area of the Pacific Northwest, one that would serve to protect and nurture America's most valuable intellectual resources. There our nation's greatest thinkers, the über-geniuses working on the next era of scientific achievement, would be able to live and work in a supportive environment. The best architects and planners were commissioned to design a welcoming place for these superlative geniuses to reside, an area that would offer the best education for their children, the best healthcare, the best amenities and quality of life. A community was created to rival the most idyllic of America's small towns - with one major difference: this town would never appear on any maps. At least, none that haven't been classified "eyes only" by the Pentagon. Written by SyFy

Trivia

Many of the small futuristic cars, such as the one loaned by Beverly Barlowe to Jack Carter in the pilot episode, were electric vehicles produced by a Canadian company called Dynasty IT. The cars came in several different versions, including sedan, coupe, pickup, and open-topped versions. Other futuristic-looking cars used in the show included the Smart Fortwo and AEV Kurrent, another electric microcar that used to be produced in Michigan. The Dynasty line has since been sold to a company in Pakistan. See more »

Goofs

The character Jack Carter is the Town Sheriff of Eureka. However, a Sheriff is the law enforcement official of a County; never of a town. Towns and cities have a police chief or marshal. See more »

Science fiction is watchable again (and it's not a remake)
19 July 2006 | by jhaskell48See all my reviews

I'm not a gamer and I am not a reality fan, but I am a big fan of real science fiction. This show actually allows you to think of the possibilities presenting interesting scientific "what ifs". However, it's great entertainment for various ages and IQs. I thought the characters were also introduced and developed quite nicely along with the story, something you don't see very often in many movies of this genre today, and so many of which, I can't get through the first half hour without feeling bored and changing the channel. This show will keep me coming back for more, if following episodes prove as interesting as this one. It does have a lot of promise. I like the way the main character brings the grounded "regular guy" comments and common sensibility to the show. Having worked around rocket scientists, they can send us into space, but you don't want them to drive your car. I agree with another reviewer, it does remind you of "American Gothic", because of the character development, sort of an "American Gothic" meets "Star Trek Next Generation". Hopefully, they will continue with this group of characters and not dilute it with a constant onslaught of new characters like "Farscape" - if you missed a few episodes, it was as though the entire cast changed. I have high hopes and will be easy to find on Tuesday night.
