Eureka is not the big flash sci-fi show that traditional viewers expect with even a modest special effects budget. It does have deep story lines and as such, some of the episodes may seem a little slow in their development, but finding the perfect balance between science experiments gone haywire and a strong and lasting background story isn't always easy to come by. I was late getting into this show, but it has not dissappointed.

In the years since World War II, the U.S. government has been relocating the world's geniuses (and their families) to the Pacific Northwest town of Eureka. Daily life there shifts between amazing innovation and total chaos. U.S. Marshall Jack Carter learns this first-hand when his car breaks down in Eureka, stranding him among the town's eccentric citizens. When they unleash a scientific creation still unknown to the outside world, it's up to Carter to restore order. Subsequently, he's let in on one of America's best-kept secrets. Close
