Eureka: Right as Raynes
(S1E08) Eureka has taken several science fiction premises and brought them to life in new ways. This weeks Eureka revisits an old favorite, but only lets on to it just when you think it's something else. Aside from the nicely delivered plot, we're treated to loads of great character interaction. It's definitely a fun SciFi ride, especially if you've been following the show.
Thankfully, this episode leaves the order issues behind. I liked that the symptoms of the problem don't tip us off to the bad guy/science project gone awry. They're related, but oh so deliciously edge around the issue.
Zoe and Carters clash during the show really brings out their issues. Previous episodes left it out, and I'm glad to see them get into it. Was it just me or did she look like Raggedy Ann?
Jo kissing and punching Calister reminds me of a line from our dear departed Firefly: "Have you ever made love to a warrior woman?"
The fence scene was just inspired. It was hilarious and it satisfied my cheesy romantic center. I loved and hated it when Jo tells them that she shut off the fence.
Once again we get some more insight into Stark. It's certainly intriguing when Mr. Work until you keel over actually takes a day off. Until they revealed what really happened, I figured that Calister had been the subject of some sort of kooky experiment. The entire plot was a great way for Carter and Stark to actually respect each other a bit more. Carter and Stark usually clash, but it's good to see them work together for once.
I realy enjoyed this episode of Eureka. It delivered, made me laugh and kept me guessing. My only gripe is that the computer card looked like a video card from my old 486. I expect Eureka tech to have escaped PCI cards dammit!
