Reading Time: ( Word Count: )


Three TV obsessed writers/friends, with wildly different tastes, coming together to discuss, dissect, defend and destroy a television series they’ve only seen TWO episodes of – the Pilot and the Finale. The missing plot points, AKA donut holes, are then puzzled out using their extensive and excessive TV knowledge. Shows are selected (semi) randomly.

Episode 6: “Science, Yeah!”

The best minds in the US are tucked away in a remote town where they build futuristic inventions for the government’s benefit.

Cartoonish and plot driven in a baffling way, Eureka nevertheless entertains with this quirky fish-out-of-water story. Your classic federal marshal stumbles upon a town full of super-scientists storyline. Twists aplenty here, not the least of which is that everyone else in town is quickly established as being smarter than our protagonist, including his rebellious teen daughter.
