Product Description

Return to the same small town with even bigger secrets as each quirky and unpredictable episode of Eureka: Season Two lands on DVD! This three-disc set with over 8 hours of fun behind-the-scenes extras will take you back to the seemingly perfect town of Eureka, where the hidden work of America’s brightest scientists can lead to innovative discoveries and unnatural chaos! Follow Sheriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) as he struggles to keep a sense of normalcy amid the scientific mayhem, big brains and bigger adventure in this unusual little town in the Pacific Northwest.

Plenty of new television series need a season or two to sort themselves out, and as this three-disc, 13-episode (plus bonus features) box set from the second season (2007) reveals, the Sci-Fi Channel’s Eureka is still a work in progress--which is not a bad thing, considering that it’s one of the more provocative and ambitious shows out there. For the uninitiated, here’s the basic premise: Sheriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson), accompanied by his teenage daughter Zoe (Jordan Hinson), is stationed in Eureka, a picturesque little burg somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Eureka is hardly Anytown, USA; indeed, this is the place where "the world’s greatest thinkers" live and work, most of them at Global Dynamics, "the most advanced scientific facility in the world." It’s also a place where exceedingly strange things happen on a regular basis. In Season Two, those happenings include people spontaneously combusting, becoming invisible, turning into gold, or simply disappearing (and leaving nothing behind--not even a memory that they ever existed); a "personal force field" that’s growing so large and so fast that it will soon engulf the whole town, and maybe even the whole world; freaky weather that changes by the moment; and even an experiment to re-create the Big Bang inside a Global Dynamics lab, leading to some unexpected side effects.

These developments are all presented with enough cool special effects and scientific techno-babble to make Eureka a perfectly viable and sometimes quite dramatic science fiction diversion. But there’s more--much more. Sometimes this is a show about relationships: Jack and Zoe (custody becomes an issue when Jack’s ex, played by Olivia D’Abo, shows up in the early episodes); Jack and Allison Blake (Salli Richardson), Global Dynamics’ new boss (their growing attraction is complicated by the continued presence of her ex, a genius scientist type); Jack and his pal Henry (Joe Morton), who blames Jack for his girlfriend’s death but gradually learns there’s more to it than that. Much of the time it’s a comedy, heavy on the quirks; and, in a change from the first year, it’s also a serial, with several story arcs continuing over the course of the season. All of that can make Eureka a but convoluted and hard to get a handle on, but this show is a keeper. Extensive bonus features include deleted scenes, gag reels, podcast commentaries, and a good deal more. --Sam Graham

    Apparently the little genius town of Eureka hasn't quite run out of disasters yet, even with the destruction of the Artifact.

    In fact, Eureka's problems get worse as the show's writing becomes better, starting with the citizens bursting into flame. The second season of "Eureka" is more confident and well-balanced than the previous one, and it takes the characters, quirky humor and tight writing into brand-new territory. Including Carter walking around naked.

    The timeline has been restored, and Carter (Colin Ferguson) and Henry (Joe Morton) are trying to adjust to their past lives. Carter also is convinced that the future will unfold just as it did in the other timeline.

    But during a solar flare viewing, a guy violently combusts -- and soon other people start combusting. Carter searches for a link between the victims, and finds that someone near him may be next. Meanwhile, the Pentagon decides to remove Nathan Stark (Ed Quinn) from Global Dynamics' big chair, and replace him with his estranged wife Allison (Salli Richardson-Whitfield). My, that's awkward.

    Other problems pop up over the season -- shared dreams, personal forcefields, "ice funnels of death," falling debris clouds attracted to the GD headquarters, invisibility projects, Fargo's frozen grandpa, Biblical plagues, Carter becoming unnaturally attractive to all women, and an attempt to recreate the Big Bang that apparently turns everyone (except Carter) into driveling idiots.

    But while the Artifact has been effectively destroyed, its presence is still felt -- Allison's autistic son Kevin has formed a strange connection to it.

    If you enjoy a good deal of comedy with your SciFi you will probably enjoy Eureka. There certainly are plenty of serious events, but with a regular mix of comedy to keep things from getting to dark. Kind of like the X-Files which had plenty of serious episodes but then were visited by unusual people including "The Lone Gunmen" to keep things in perspective. The second season is a must have for anyone that bought the first. This season continues the investigation of the alien artifact along with the further emersion of Sheriff Jack Carter and Zoe into Eureka's community.

    Many of the budding relationships have now fizzled and new ones have began that may seem less odd or more depending on your perspective. This is not high brow SciFi for the most part although some of the ideas are based on conceivable research. Eureka is a town of Mensa types that have their own projects and inventions that they develop. It seems they aren't under the same rules as the rest the country so anything can happen when their experiaments go wrong. Good quality DVDs and excellent replayability, but I'm still not crazy about cardboard fold up cover.

    I've become a big fan of Eureka. It has a great balance of humor and sci-fi drama that I enjoy. It's not overly dark and there's always an opportunity to chuckle. And, with it being set in the current timeline, it makes it easy to relate to. Wouldn't it be great if some of these inventions and creations really did exist? But, they also point out some of the drawbacks. After all, M.A.D (Mutually Assured Destruction), may not really be the way to end the last great war and being able to time travel could have some serious consequences. It's a great show. That's all that really needs to be said.

    First off, I love this show. It's brilliant in just about every way imaginable. So I apologize for the low rating, but I have to make my point.

    The distributors of this DVD must be just absurdly lacking in IQ (irony shouldn't be lost). For the first season, they chose a nasty styrofoam wanna-be that not only shed on the discs, forcing you to clean each disc thoroughly each time you wanted to watch it, but it didn't even hold the discs. They just rolled around, free to get damaged.

    NOW, they've chosen some cheap plastic that SCRATCHES the discs.

    I repeat:


    Now, call me old fashioned, but I think a case should protect the disc from damage, not damage the disc.

    If the company is making an attempt to force consumers into downloading the show electronically, they succeed. With iTunes and other ways of downloading this show, I see little point in owning these round pieces of plastic that are now good for little more than flinging at ninjas who may attack my house (yes, a 3 Ninjas reference) besides the fact that I already own them.

    This packaging is supposed to be "environmentally conscious," as if the case is meant to be disposal. Again, I think the case is kind of important for protecting a disc, and I don't plan on throwing the disc out right after I buy it. It's not a coffee cup.

    This company needs to stop worrying about making "green" products and start worrying about making "good" products.
