The best minds in the US are tucked away in a remote town where they build futuristic inventions for the government’s benefit.
The tagline given to the show Eureka, a television series that aired from 2006-2012 doesn’t do it much justice. Although it only ran for 5 seasons on the Sci-Fi channel, it was one of the most interesting series I’ve ever come across. It blended traditional sci-fi elements of what you might see in Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica with a series like Pushing Daisies (or maybe Pushing Daisies stole some of its whimsy from Eureka, who knows.) It’s bright, colorful, and a sci-fi fanatic’s dream. Who knows if we may have an actual town in the U.S. with geniuses and a Cafe Diem? We might. You can watch the entire series streaming on Netflix.

*Fun side note: If you’re a fan of Orphan Black, Matt Frewer, who plays Dr. Aldous Leekie, is also on Eureka. Plus, he does a really fantastic Australian accent.
