Congrats to Amy, Jaime and the cast of crew of Eureka for their fifth season pick up! If you don’t watch Eureka, now is a great time to start. It’s smart, geeky and funny and a new episode airs tonight on Syfy. According to the twitters, an upcoming episode will feature (the return of) Wheaton, Felicia Day and Stan Lee! That’s geekdiculous. If you are reading this comic with any regularity, they are making this show FOR YOU. This is YOUR SHOW. Watch it.
[Note to Amy: I really just have absolutely no idea what an E.P does but it seems like you have fun, love what you do, work extremely hard and wrangle turkeys.]
I know I’ve taken more than my fair share of pot shots at Syfy for their frequent (and awful) creature features, but the honest truth is they are also making some of the most geek-centric TV available this side of the good Doctor. They gave us freaking BSG for frak’s fuck. I just have trouble rectifying these two halves of the Sy-ence Fy-ction entity. I realize that cable channels are just corporations and corporations make all kinds of different products (Phillip Morris makes tasty cheeses AND poison-filled cigarettes), but when those hyper-diverse products fly under the same banner it’s a little harder to compartmentalize. For instance, the fact that Kurt from Glee and Glenn Beck’s paychecks are banked by the same Australian media overlord is mind-googling. I would assume the annual Newscorp employee picnic is a particularly tense event.
Anyway, my friend works her ass off to make an awesome show and ride’s a sharktopus to work every day that’s pretty cool. [I am no closer to understanding what her job is]
