We're big fans of Eureka, and we hated to see it go. We created these podcasts in the hopes of changing SyFy's mind about Eureka's cancellation, but ended up at least sending Eureka off in style by discussing each new episode (old ones, too!) and sharing what makes the show so special to us. You'll find enjoyment and analysis of each Eureka episode here as well as cast interviews and a great wrap-up after Eureka's bittersweet finale.
#47: Colin Ferguson Interview
Colin Ferguson joins us for an upbeat and thought-provoking discussion about Life, Eureka, and Everything. We enjoy discussion of Ferguson’s days as a standup comic and improv artist, the importance of listening skills and supporting fellow players, and confirmation that one can, indeed, make it as an actor while still being a Nice Guy. We [...]
#46: S05E13 Just Another Day
It’s the Eureka finale! We discuss the final episode, looking at the in-jokes, cameos, and storyline conclusions, as well as our feelings on the series as a whole.
#45: S05E12 Double Take
We get our monster mash on, delighting in this episode’s references to sci-fi classics Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Star Wars, Blade Runner, Battlestar Galactica, the proverbial zombie apocalypse, and more. We talk about series endings, evaluate a few wrap-ups that we think did justice to our favorite shows (and some that left us hanging), and speculate [...]
#44: S05E11 Mirror, Mirror
We attempt to analyze Henry’s complex motives for turning himself in; note that for a fundamentally decent guy, Henry tends toward single-minded, emotional reactions; and compare his puzzling behavior to Socrates’ insistence on accepting the death sentence handed him by a democratic jury in Athens. Juan offers some important observations based on his re-watch of [...]
#43: S05E10 The Honeymooners
We sympathize with Carter’s sweet-but-crappy honeymoon plans to renovate a dilapidated love shack/death trap and explore the questions sci-fi raises about humanity with the separation of a person’s “essence” from a corporeal state. We discuss the show’s interestingly humanist view that existing in some physical form really does make you more whole, marvel at Felicia [...]
#42: S05E09 Smarter Carter
We explore some heady questions, like what qualities make a person valuable in Eureka, whether intelligence is really inversely proportionate to “heart,” and why the town as a whole should develop a broader appreciation of human traits (instead of just the “genius gene”). We appreciate the humor (as always), riffing on Deputy Andy and S.A.R.A.H. [...]
