Eureka
« on: July 20, 2012, 12:11:43 PM »
vary rarely do i watch the last episodes of a show that's been canceled.  they usually have lame endings and are not worth it.  this was different and i'm glad to have watched it to the end.  it also left the door open for later tv movies, or a new series.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

it was a quirky show.  nothing deep about it, but it was different and had good actors.  my kind of comedy.
