Am I the only one watching this? If you haven't had an opportunity to see it, EUReKA is a fairly original show.

Basic Concept: A workaholic, very observant U.S. Marshal is recruited to be the Sheriff in a rural town where the U.S. has sent its smartest minds to create/theorize/invent fantastical technology that could relate to just about anything. Nobody is 'just a _________ '. Even the small town mechanic used to be a literal Rocket Scientist. In a nice little nod to previous 'small town' shows, the mechanic is also the coroner, the forensics specialist, and probably two or three other things we haven't seen yet.

Just based on the pilot and 1/2 of the second episode, I think this show will be a hit. Then again, my tastes aren't always mainstream. Any other opinions?

I have seen both the pilot (2 hours) and the second episode and while it is original, I do not see how it will have the legs to last past one season. We have already had a rip in time space continum abd a "ghost". It seems like there will always have to be "something" going on. Unlike "northern Exposure" (another small town show) there does not seem to be the opportunity for character development as with Eureka. They are all braniacs, sans the Sherrif and his daughter, and each week there will be "something" that needs to be explained and solved.

Now, i like this show and will continue to watch as the cast of relative unknowns is doing a good acting job, but I am not holding out on it being a hit like Monk, The Closer and The Dead Zone (an dhopefully Psych, which I like better than Eureka).

Of course, I was the one who said they could never do a second season of Lost so what the hell do I know?

Wow, that is graphic.

I like it, and at this point, think it could either end up being brilliant or run out of ideas really fast. I think there's a lot of potential for character development here.

I suppose I have ECW to thank for this. I probably never would have thought to watch it if I hadn't been watching Sci-Fi an hour later anyway...

I totally agree ... Denzel is fantastic as a villain. I smell some Oscar noms for this flick.
