I just got my new TV Guide today and it's the annual summer SciFi edition. Tom Whelling is on the cover and he looks terrible. I happy for the new SciFi show starting Tuesday called Eureka. It's about a town of super secret government scientists. Every week some invention goes horribly wrong and things needed to be solved, fixed, or dealt with. It looks like the use the great and standard plot device of "the outsider." This is great for SciFi shows since things always need to be explained to the audience. With the outsider, here a federal marshal, who needs to constantly be informed as to what is going on. It works well. This show looks like a fun and fanciful show, leaving the big action for the Stargates and the extreme drama for Battlestar. Only three months until Battlestar.
