Eureka, Every Geeks Dream Town


Eureka is a TV show currently playing on Syfy channel and on Sky TV channel in the UK as ‘A Town Called Eureka’. The show is currently in its fourth season and I can not believe this is the first I heard of it. While recently chatting with someone about TV shows that we are currently watching I was told about Eureka.

I proceeded to watch all three seasons, meaning I am hooked. Not that the show is so great or epic, having an average of 3.2 million viewers there are more popular shows out there. But this show has its charm or rather the fictional town of Eureka.

Eureka is a small town in Oregon where worlds best scientist live and work for Global Dynamics a research facility. Federal agent Jack Carter arrives by accident in Eureka and decides to accept the position of Sheriff. In the first episodes we are introduced to Eureka and learn how technology advanced the town is while yet retaining a small town charm.

I’m not a big fan of science fiction TV shows but Eureka combines the science fiction so well with present time that it really appeals to your imagination. Jack is just a regular guy who likes his Jeep, his old fashioned cell phone, beer, hamburgers and baseball. So it’s all new to him when he ends up living in an artificial intelligent house named SARAH who acts like his wife, telling him to eat healthy, doing his laundry and cooking.

As a geek and gadget fanatic I would love to live in a town like Eureka. I’d have a car with artificial intelligence, an interface free touch driven computer and safe nuclear energy while still living in a present day house with wooden chairs, wooden floors and a comfy couch.

If you are a geek who fantasizes about living with futuristic gadgets that facilitate life then you should watch this show. It’s fun, geeky, not overly dramatic and you learn a thing or two about quantum physics.
