So far, it seems like they've given the people who write their station identification clips a series of their very own!
Aha, you are correct. I was thinking the previews looked familiar. In fact, I what I thought was a new Sci-Fi clip turned out to be a Eureka preview.

Anywho.... yep, like others have said, it seems interesting enough to check out. Especially during the mostly uneventful summer months....

I saw the ads for this this weekend and wondered if someone had started something for it. Hope it's as good as the ads. Maybe it will help quell my current thirst for quantum physics as well...
Ooh, and Matt frewer to boot! Excellent.

At least, I thought I saw Maury Chaykin in some television previews.

Today I went to the Eureka site and found that they have a mock online store now called Made in Eureka. It's pretty funny, they have futuristic versions of TVs and phones, and even iPod accessories. My favorite is the short range personality detector. Here's a link to it.

Hee! I love this one: The description just cracked me up.

The days when your personal music collection and the security of your nation were handled by different devices are over.
For some reason, the premise of this show reminds me of a book I read by Dean Koontz many years ago called "The House of Thunder." Now THAT would make a great TV series!
Ooh, I remember that book -- it was so freaking creepy! I'm intrigued by the previews, and will definitely tune in.

The good thing was that after I explained it, she became interested in the concept of the show.

Plus it has Joe Morton, a guy who I really enjoy watching.

That's a semi-positive review at least. If Matt Roush likes it, that's good enough for me.
So far, the show is more likable than memorable, but there are worse places to spend a midsummer's night.

An interesting quote they had from Dave Howe, Sci Fi's general manager was:
The article suggested that this show is an expensive gamble, since the ratings are down 14% from 2005 and they have less than half the audience of TNT or USA.
We kind of cornered the market on space and aliens and the future, and this show [Eureka] is none of the above: It's an Earth-based, character-based contemporary drama.
There is still plenty of sci-fi jargon in Eureka - quantum anomalies, next-gen military hardware and a top-secret warehouse known as section five. But the channel is adamant about one thing: no aliens. In the first episode, when a local resident says his cattle are being abducted by extra terrestrials, everybody laughs.
I understand them trying to expand their audience base, but your average TV viewer probably won't understand the subtle distinction they're trying to make. Unless they change the channel's name and risk the ire of its die hard fans, I doubt they'll be able to make significant inroads into the general population.

I didnt see the Kennel one originally, but I keep seeing it in ads (I know I saw it on Engadget). Eureka seems like its everywhere.
Not only that, there's all these commericals for it on Bravo! Sci-Fi certainly sunk money in this show -- I really, really hope it flies because I'm psyched for it.

I was listening to him with one ear and eyes and other ear were on the screen.
And I fell for the microwave oven mit.
I don't know if its the heat outside, the (did I imagine) bubling mozarella on the pizza as the glove passed over it, or too much television, but I even saw the Eureka symbol and it didn't sink in.
I told Mr. Shallots that I thought it was a really bad product and he started laughing and ....you can guess the rest.

Just know I'll be watching simply for the fact that I Live in Eureka, CA. SYNCHRONICITY Heee! Let's Hope sciFi gets a decent show goin', after all that farscape shenanigans! ;-)

Deputy Jo and Allison are very easy on the eyes. I'm not going to complain about that. I will say this, when we first saw Deputy Jo, I thought it was Emmanuelle Vaugier for a second.
I didn't see that FelonSpice was Jack's daughter. That thought just never crossed my mind.
I like this show. It's got humor and a good cast, which is a good thing. The previews were pretty cool as well.

I loved it. It was great and I can't wait to see what happens next.
Did the Sheriff retire, so that Jack could have his job? I hope that we get to see him again because Maury Chaykin is awesome.

Other than the daughter, my only complaint is that the tone of the show seems to abruptly switch from whimsical to creepy, which is a little jarring. It's like, ooh, this is fun, what neat gadgets, what cute little awkward nerds, OMG THAT DUDE'S LEGS ARE GONE!!!
But I mostly enjoyed it. I'm glad I don't know much about real science, because I'm sure actual physicists would be irked by the gobblydegook mumbo jumbo explanations, but I'm a good little sci-fi fan, in that if you say it with enough conviction, I'll buy it.
