I caught the pilot of Eureka. I think it’s best described as Twin Peaks (or Northern Exposure) meets The Twilight Zone – think weird happenings in a small town setting. (Hmmm, maybe even more like Asimov’s Probe – remember that one?)
The very likable protagonist, Jack Carter – for all his smarmy charm and wit – may as well be called Jack O’Neill. The townsfolk are suitably quirky for a bunch of Braniacs. They didn’t keep the covers on the town’s secret too long, which was nice, and seem to have set up some cross-episode story arcs – also nice but let’s hope that those arcs don’t become the focus of the show.
Could it be another decent sf show? I hate to get my hopes up. But I will be catching some more episodes.
