I didn't see it here yet. Eureka starts it's new season Monday night at 8:00 eastern.
I really enjoyed this last episode. Will Wheaton was a guest. And I liked the Starship Troopers'esque opening sequence for their new "Astraeus" (Titan - god of the dusk) space mission to Titan.
http://www.deadline.com/2011/08/syfys-eureka-poised-to-end-its-run-with-final-6-episode-order/ There is an update on the page:
Of course, this is still season 4 that we're watching now, so there's at least 19 more episodes after. Besides that, it's pretty formulaic at this point. I still like it, but I could see how one would get tired of it.
We were expecting the episodes we are watching right now to have been broadcast quite some time ago. I really have no idea (but I presume the information is online somewhere) just how many episodes have been filmed that we have yet to see. The new timeline, which surprisingly was not undone, put a lot of new life into the series.
Cancelled. http://www.deadline.com/2011/08/its-over-eureka-canceled-with-no-final-6-episode-order/ Well, they still get next season, but it's cancelled after that. I guess that gives the writers plenty of time to write an ending, as they have a commitment for 13 more eps.
Damn. I really like this show no matter how silly it can be sometimes. I was even ok with the product placement as part of the script. If they must end it then good grief don't end it like SG: Universe. Some closure would really be appreciated.
Even though this show is silly and the plots are pretty outlandish, I like it because I like the characters. These are people I'd like to meet and interact with. I actually look forward to Monday nights.
I do find it hard to say something is "Cancelled" when 13 more eps + a christmas special are committed to. Why don't they just say "the next season is the last, and we're glad that we've done this for X years.." Because this gives the writers plenty of time to write some natural endings
...And the Syfy meltdown continues. It's not surprising. This channel is putrid, moves shows around like a dart-wielding monkey controls their schedule, and has nothing but contempt for the audience that their name implies they serve. Frankly, I'm amazed they gave it five seasons -- they must not have realized it was actually halfway decent.
The Syfy/SciFi meltdown has been going on since they cancelled "Farscape".
Actually, from what I've been reading, they're already in the last stages of filming that next season, so it's not really that much time to write an ending.
Season 5 was to have 16 episodes but SyFy has added one more episode to help make a satisfying conclusion.
I don't even watch this show, but I can tell you that if Eureka was the name of a wrestler, SyFy would renew it without a moment's hesitation.
I'm disappointed, but not surprised. The way SyFy's moved this show around, put it hiatus, etc. and I, too, am surprised it lasted this long. Oh well, just more reason not to watch the channel. Hopefully, they'll be able to come up with a nice send-off. Maybe they could even come up with a movie or two to finish it off, ala The PeaceKeeper Wars.
On the Eureka Facebook page:
So, it appears that except for the extra episode, the rest of Season 5 is already fixed. At least they get the extra episode.
They hadn't yet learned this lesson when then canceled SG:U. Now they have and I hope that when they cancel other series they will keep this in mind.
Well, that was certainly a cliff hanger for the season finale. I have a suspicion of who took over the launch computers but I have absolutely no clue where they were sent. And the whole Joe thing was a little touching. I'm going to really miss this show.
This was a great Christmas episode. Probably my favorite yet. The cartoon and claymation were great but the Anime had me laughing big time. I'll miss this show.
