    I think it was just Carter's preference. He really love that old Jeep. Plus, somehow it was a perfect fit for his personality.

    Alphas has now shown itself to be in the same universe show-wise, so we could sneak in there too!

    I saw it as kind of a running gag, like the way they keep killing Kenny in South Park. You knew the jeep was gonna buy it before the end of the episode. The only question was how.

    That too. That sort of explained why Carter reacted the way he did when he saw them slicing apart the jeep... it was a sort of "Oh, so that's how it's going to happen this time" reaction.

    This could still happen. Holly did say she was going to work for a really top secret operation that travels a lot and she needed a team.

    But she specifically said DARPA.

    Since this is the series finale, does anyone have a very favorite episode or two? From the whole series?

    I especially liked the reference to the alternate future that we saw in the season 1 finale, when Jack felt deja vu after Allison told him she was pregnant.

    I do wish, though, that they did something else during the series to follow-up on Henry's anger at Jack.

    Though I'm sad to see Eureka gone, I did enjoy this episode and liked what they did with it.

    I noticed the Paglia sign on that window, but didn't recognize Grant. When/where was he? I read that there were lots of little easter eggs in this episode. I wonder what others I missed. I thought I saw Stan Lee during Jack's wormhole sequence. What episode was that from?

    I also thought Baltar's voice sounded very strange, like he forgot how to do an American accent.

    Grant was at the beginning before the opening credits. He was following around a little robot.

    Thanks. Didn't realize that was him. I'll have to rewatch that scene.

    I thought his voice sounded really strange also. I almost thought it wasn't the same actor for a few seconds.

    I just checked this scene from the pilot. The other thing they screwed up, besides the cruiser vs. Jeep thing, was that the "other" Zoe in the pilot episode was grinning and waving.

    I'm nitpicking, I know. I also realize it can be chalked up to another difference from this reality vs. the original one.

    That's odd. It means "End of Series Zoe" remembered seeing herself from the pilot and was expecting the pass. Since it's obvious the writers tried to payoff that opening scene, I wonder why the writers didn't create some scenario where "End of Series Zoe" realized what was coming and waved, rather than she and Jack sitting there seeming to be just as clueless as the other set driving toward Eureka.

    Unless, of course, this is an endless recurring loop thing, and the pass we saw in the pilot was not the same pass we saw in the finale. The pass from the pilot will happen sometime, in one of the iterations of the recurring loop, but this wasn't it.

    I'm sorry to see the show end. I thought they did a great job with the final episode. I'll miss it.

    I think that was supposed to be part of his new persona. Or just a slip up by the actor.

    I will miss this show. Nothing monumental. Just a nice quirky small show.

    Just watched the dvd's and the gag reel was hilarious and also the commentary for the final episode. They pointed out all kinds of people that were in the scenes that had been in earlier episodes or were part of the crew.

    I wish Stark had returned, keeping with Eureka, in some really odd fashion like calling in from a base on the moon or something.

    ...except that he's dead. (Yes, in this reality as well.)

    Well it is tv, we saw him dematerialize in some chamber, but then again people dematerialize in the transporter on Startrek. So maybe he's dead, maybe not.
