    I haven't finished this last season. I was afraid it had jumped the shark with the time travel storyline. It is as good if not better than the season before. :)

    This season was not that great. Did not like the time travel storyline at all. It was better before time line changed.

    I thought this was the best season yet where some depth was added to many characters. As far as jumping the shark, Eureka jumps the shark every episode, that's what makes it a fun summer show and not Lost.

    Clearly the uptick in the ratings indicated that most views LIKED the time travel story, and that they think she show has improved since it happened. It doesn't matter so much to me. It is NOT hard sci-fi, so I just don't worry about the continuity and accuracy.

    I just started watching Eureka via Netflix.

    Have two episodes left on Season 2.

    Is this show available via cable tv?

    PS: Can anyone else imagine a Tardis appearing on this show?

    Eureka is a SyFy (a.k.a. SciFi Channel) original program. It is not on the air at this time, but should return with new episodes shortly (date not yet announced).

    I'd like to see Parker Stevenson and Shaun Cassidy guest star on Eureka.

    Anyone else?

    Wouldn't they be better for Psych?

    That was my thought. What connection do either of them have to a show like this?

    Maybe in another parallel universe, Eureka is populated by 70s and 80s teen idols that are actually geniuses :D

    I was thinking that Frank and Joe Hardy could be working in the crime lab / forensics in Eureka. I would explain whatever happened to those guys. :)

    (Yes, the old Hardy Boys tv series is in my Netflix list.)

    I still say they'd be better for Psych. Not only would it fit in with that show's fetish for 70s/80s pop culture icons, but they are pop culture icons who are a pair of detectives.

    I haven't see the Psych tv series.

    Who guest starred on it?

    What does that have to do with anything?

    As Rob said, Psych would be a great fit for a detective duo from the 80s. The show is about a guy who is highly observant, and he pretends to be a psychic detective to help the police department solve crimes. It's a very fun, very upbeat show with lots of pop culture references, especially to 80s/90s pop culture. It airs on USA Network.

    I don't see how the Hardy Boys would make sense at all on Eureka, but they'd be perfect guest stars for Psych.

    Psych is taking place in the present. Why couldn't the two main characters find themselves in Eureka and solve a crime? That actually sounds like fun.

    A Psych/Eureka crossover would be pretty good. And since USA and Syfy are both owned by NBC Universal (now Comcast), they could make it work. I'm just not seeing how the Hardy Boys would be a good fit on Eureka.

    Sure. I didn't think the Warehouse 13 crossover worked at all and that is a closer fit.

    I think we have one last episode of season 3.5 and then we'll have to wait for season 4 to become available via Syfy, Netflix or whatever.

    Hey, what happened to the autistic black kid who had a connection to level 5?
