The equation has changed! That's the tagline for this season of Eureka, which I presume means big doings in the eponymous town full of scientists with poor judgment. I can't imagine the general formula will be affected (a science experiment causes chaos and the sheriff has to solve the problem using science and common sense), but it looks like there will indeed be at least one new variable. That variable? Gaius Baltar!
We're still on the fence about this show. While we love Stephen King, and we've been known to be both up and down on any show that has a "freak of the week" pattern, the catch-all nature of Haven leaves us meh. We get it, the town has a lot of crazy stuff going on in it, which is why an FBI agent is on loan there, looking into stuff with her local cop partner, but what does it all mean? What's the point? Is there a point? Is Eric Balfour as good as this cast is going to get, acting-wise? Because sometimes it seems that way. And when both main characters speak in a monotone and the show's biggest threats are called "The Troubles," it doesn't make for a very exciting show. But at least tonight's episode has ghosts stabbing people.
