what does a tall tale in the town of Eureka sound like?

There’s a new special holiday episode airing tonight on Syfy at 9pm Eastern called “O’ Little Town”… and it is a huge hoot.

a few thoughts on the new season of ‘Eureka’

Damn you, Eureka. I had been enjoying Syfy’s Eureka since its beginning a few years ago. It has been perfect Friday-night TV: smart but not overly demanding, the kind of show that didn’t insult my intelligence but allowed me to relax with it. Nice, likeable characters (for the most part, aside from one or two … more…

‘Haven’ debuts on Syfy tonight…

…and I’m sorry to say that it’s a bit of a snooze, judging by the premiere episode, which I had the chance to watch in rough cut. More than a bit of a snooze, actually. FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) travels to the small Maine seaside town of Haven to, she hopes, recapture a … more…

‘Eureka’ Season 3 begins tonight

Sweet is not often a word you can apply to science fiction, but it’s a good word for Eureka. Nice is another one. (I’ve used gentle before, too, to describe the show, and that’s a good one as well.) And it’s all still true in the Season 3 premiere episode “Bad to the Drone,” debuting … more…
