With the dwindling number of new TV shows that truly let imagination sore, it is a shame to see Eureka end. Eureka, is a small town full of geniuses working on secret government projects and bringing a completely new meaning to the phrase, “tinkering in the garage.” Inevitable these projects get out of hand and […]

This season has focused much on the Olivias and Walters, but in this last episode Peter was at center stage. As compelling as Olivia and Walter’s journeys […]
