Some of the government's best-kept secrets are waiting to be uncovered as Eureka:Season One arrives on DVD! Step into the quirky and seemingly perfect small town of Eureka, where the hidden work of America's brightest scientists can lead to innovation or utter chaos. Making sense of the mysteries is Sheriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson), a former U.S. marshal who is stranded in the surreal small town after a random car accident. Now fans can get in on his entertaining adventures with this three-disc set packed with over 10 hours of bonus features. Nothing is as it seems in the brilliant and witty new series critics are calling "the most original new drams" (The Courier-Journal).

1. Pilot: After U.S. Marshall Jack Carter and his fugitive daughter find themselves lost on a lonely back road, their chance arrival in an odd small town will change their travel plans forever. This is better than the pilots for Warehouse 13 and Alphas. A+
2. Many Happy Returns: Home sweet home gets a new twist when Jack moves into a “smart house” with a mind of its own, and a former resident of Eureka returns to find out why she’s been reported dead. A
3. Before I forget: Memory lapses prove deadly when Jack suspects a visiting scientist of tampering with residents’ minds for his own benefit. A
4. Alienated: Messages from outer space have some Eureka residents convinced that a visiting legislator is much more dangerous than he seems. B+
5. Invincible: When an accidental lab explosion destroys years of research on cellular regeneration, a sensitive scientist finds himself biochemically altered beyond his wildest dreams.
6. Dr. Nobel:
When Fargo accidentally activates long-forgotten Cold War missiles, it’s up to Jack to find the computer’s source before Eureka becomes a giant crater. This isn’t the best episode, but it’s not bad. B
7. Blink: Jack’s in the ultimate race for survival when some Section 5 employees access a top-secret drug that makes them too speedy to catch. A
8. Right as Raynes: Rebellious behavior has Jack scratching his head when Zoe acts out while he traces an annoying citywide computer glitch to a charismatic programmer. An excellent episode, with a touching ending. A+
9. Primal: The fate of Eureka depends on a kiss when Jack discovers that robot nanoids have begun replicating themselves, and the only way to stop them is to make Stark jealous by kissing Allison. This would have been a good episode, if it weren’t for the fact that Taggert’s incompetence probably lead to the problem of the week (A couple people getting killed is on his head, and he doesn’t seem to feel anything.). If he had properly put the lid on the nanoids and they still managed to escape it would have been a pretty good episode. C-
10. Purple Haze: Change is in the air when Eureka residents wake up after a typically calm night with absolutely none of their former inhibitions. A+
11. H.O.U.S.E. Rules: House-hunting takes on a new meaning when Jack, Allison, Stark, Beverly, Fargo and Henry are trapped in the “smart house” with its devilish alter ego, B.R.A.D. Like with Primal this episode is one scene away from being good. There are plenty of great scenes, but one ruins it for me (I don’t want to spoil it; you’ll probably know it when you see it). C
12. Once in a Lifetime: The space-time continuum is severely tested when the 2,010 residents of Eureka discover they’ve been living in an alternate timeline and the “real” future is encroaching on their idyllic world. An excellent season finale. A+
I ordered season 2 after watching the first 8 episodes, and am really looking forward to it and the future seasons, especially the episodes Crossing Over (where Claudia from Warehouse 13 goes to Eureka) and Do You See What I See (which sounds awesome).
Always a mystery going on and a cast of characters that get along well (in their own way).
I missed this show when it was on previously but I don't think that I could have stomached the long commercial breaks that must have been programmed into the show.
Most of these shows run 43 minutes - so that would leave 17 minutes of commercials per show.
It is so great to be able to watch these shows without all the commercials. I wonder if the producers realize how disrupting commercials actually are.
At any rate, here on Amazon Prime you can enjoy these shows commercial free and truly enjoy the show.
Worth your time to take in a show or 2 and then see if they are for you.
One of the best parts of the series is the time spent on strong character development, it did seem to get the series off to a slightly slow start but it was worth it as the show progressed. By the end of the first season, the characters are fully fleshed out and very "real".
This is a very funny and smart series! Highly recommended!
During the pilot, the series shows an interesting script (for a SyFy type of history) relating hi-sci themes with personal and family issues
After defining the sheriff role, based on the pilot, the script become repetitive and only changes collateral issues keeping intact the central history, becoming predictable
It's just an option to consider if you're a sci-fi fanatic and have little-to-none to do
It's value is four stars instead of three because it's clearly offered as scientific-fiction entertainment
