So yet again I am late to the party but this year I finally caught up with Eureka.  On premise I didn’t really expect to like this show which is why I avoided it (who else does that???).  That said when I got through the first episode, I was hooked but not for the sci-fi reasons.  As a single father watching the lead struggling through life with a teenage daughter… SO BEEN THERE.  I think Eureka suffers a little from the fact it isn’t quite sure who it’s target audience is (syfy viewers duh) but I think it works strongest as a family show in the way dr who used to be.  This is a great father-son, father-daughter show.  Kind of a modern geeks version of 7th Heaven only a lot more fun.  If they had more story variations than “Jack saves the day with a cool thought” and a better focus it could have been the modern doctor who, introducing another generation to science.  As it is – it’s a lot of fun and hey, not every show has to be a classic.

Highway To Mars

Welcome to Martian Central, please take a ticket, the sheep ray will be with you shortly. Highway to Mars was created by Author Stefan Sawynok as an excuse to ramble his way through Science Fiction that he liked and to shine a light on things such as books that don't get covered all that often in fandom. Mostly covers British and American sci-fi but occasionally steps out to cover pieces from around the world. There is so much Sci-fi out there and so little time. :)
