[first lines]
Henry Deacon: A lot of us are still in shock about the tragic events that have brought us here. The loss of Walter and Susan Perkins forces us to question if the work we do is worth the risks. Eureka was born from the idealistic vision that by advancing science we could control it for the greater good. Clearly, that's not always the case. We can never forget Walter and Susan. Their legacy is in our hands now. Their friends. Their family. Their son. Walter and Susan: you will be greatly missed.

Following on from the events seen in the pilot episode this instalment opens with the funeral of Walter and Susan Perkins. Soon after strange things start to happen; there are a series of electrical problems and sightings of a 'ghost'... this being Eureka nobody actually believes in ghosts of course. Something stranger then happens... Susan Perkins walks into the police station alive and well! She appears to be a different Susan Perkins though; she chose not to move to Eureka when Walter moved there. As well as trying to get to the bottom of these mysteries new sheriff Jack Carter moves into a futuristic new home provided by Fargo.

This was a solid second episode which effectively built on the events of the pilot. The story was intriguing with hints of the supernatural before an explanation that hammers home the fact that this is science fiction not fantasy... even though the genres are closer than some SF fans like to admit. There are some nicely creepy moments; especially the way the 'ghost' is depicted. The secondary plot line featuring Jack's new home was provided some light relief... the fact that the house's computer system has the voice of Fargo trying to sound female was hilarious... especially when he was called out on it. We are only two episodes into the series but I already feel like I'll be watching this to the end.
