I Have Better Taste Than I Think I Do

Some universal television truths for you:

1) There is a lot of crap on television.

2) SyFy Original Series can usually be put in the ‘crap’ category.

3. I do my best to avoid the crap.

Of course, I do have occasional lapses in judgment. (Like, for instance, that America’s Next Top Model phase that will never be discussed.) And there are some gray areas – The Vampire Diaries, which is CW crack but also pretty original, for instance. And sometimes I derogatorize shows that don’t necessarily deserve it, just because I put on my critic hat for fun and anger is more fun to write and, I’m guessing, to read.

THE POINT IS, sometimes I forget that shows are actually good/enjoyable/whatever. Especially when I stop watching them on a regular basis. Case in point, Eureka.

Oh man Eureka.

That is a SyFy Original series worth your time.

Almost a year ago now, I started watching that show. Got through the beginning of Season 3, couldn’t find any working links, gave up, never went back to it. UNTIL YESTERDAY. Yesterday I was really bored and surfing around Hulu trying to find something to watch. And I encountered the newest season of Eureka. When the screenshot of James Callis in Eureka first showed up, I was tempted. But I didn’t watch, because I told myself I ought to catch up first…and when I realized that would take, like, time and stuff, I offhandedly rejected the idea and that was that.

But yesterday I was exceptionally bored, as I mentioned, and curiosity got the better of me. So I watched the season premiere. And it. Was. AWESOME.


Seriously people: Eureka is good on its own merit (actors, characters, wackiness), but the season premiere is Eureka + the 1940s + James Callis with a Panatlantic accent. There are no good times gooder than this. Oh, and the other two episodes of the season so far are pretty good too.

    This season of Eureka has me SO excited so far. This is easily on of my favorite shows on television.
