wow, so nothing?

I thought it was pretty interesting. The joe/zane angle is played up, alison and carter continue playing happy families, but it was also interesting to see how much the predictor helped and hindered.

I didn't get the chance to see it all the way through *darn* LOVED what I saw. Jo in denial (it's not just a river in Egypt) over what she and Zane had together. The predictive technology - just how would that play out? My contacts said you'd go out and commit a felony.

I love how Jo has owned the authority she has as head of GD security.

Love Fargo settling into his position.

A bit farfetched about Jo getting out of the reactor. That steam heat should have killed I think.
Will Wheaton? Never my favorite. What can I say that Sheldon hasn't said before:P

True the steam shoulda burned her but suspension of belief I guess. And I loved the stan lee cameo.

Finally the Thread is open, I am right there with you. The weird thing is that I never heard of Wil Wheaton before the Big Bang Theory and somehow I cant get myself to give him a chance. He may have been cute as a kid, and I am trying to put this as friendly as I can, but somehow he just has that Jackass/Imbecil feel to him.

To the Episode, I loved it. I laughed so hard after Carter got gooed and Joes lenses tell her that the Resentmentprobability was 98% XD I want a pair of those lenses!

As to Wil Wheaton - I think that's partly the character he's playing. Granted, I haven't seen him in anything since ST: TNG, but he hasn't come across like that in his earlier stuff.

As an aside, Hubby didn't recognize him. Even tried to tell me I was full of it when I commented on it.

He was on the show? I didn't even notice. I even watched the episode twice.

He was the guy that Fargo hates, bugs for food. I seriously can't remember his character's name right now. Sorry. It's a crazy week for me.

Uggg...Dr. Parrish. I looked up the info on IMDB...and there is a picture on there of him with the beard... I would've had no earthly idea that he was on the show...

His Name was Dr. Perish. And I just want to add that I somehow think that even in a Friendly role I wouldnt like him. I mean there are alot of bad Guys that I like, but Wheaton just wont do it and I cant explain why. It bugs me.

I understand completely. I feel the same about him, always have, even on TNG:(

I didn't even realize that it was Wheaton in the role of Dr. Parrish. I guess I was expecting to see the boney kid from TNG.

he's been in a few things...and always seems to play an arrogant and rude person, he plays himself on big bang theory, and happens to end up being sheldon's almost arch nemesis

I just had to Google this guy, I honestly had no idea that it was him. He really didn't have that much of an impact on me in TNG, he always seemed to be negligible. In Eureka he just came across as another self centered scientist fighting our heros' attempts to keep the world literally in one piece.

I always watch Eureka with suspension of belief. It's fun, it's interesting, but it's mainly camp, and that's why I love it. :)

I enjoyed last night. I'm happy to see Jo and Zane finally starting to get together, not quite sure why Jo's so reticent, they were great together in the other reality.

Love Alison and Carter together as well. I'm glad that he was willing to let her go to space if that's what she wanted and was even willing to take care of her kids while she was gone, but equally glad that she decided to stay. One of my favorite things she said was "that was my dream, this is my dream now",(or something to that effect) because that's what happens as you grow. Sometimes your dreams change, and you realize that what you have is better than what you thought you wanted.

Fargo was great. Nice to see him grow a little bit and start acting more like the head of GD.

And I really, really want to know what Beverly did to Alison to make her a 99.08% threat.

I know why Jo doenst want to give Zane a chance. She is a tough Girl and she lost Zane once right after she opened up, she may just be afraid that she will loose this Zane too.

The Threat thing is pretty easy to know, she has nanobots in her Brain. Anytime someone can turn on their Remotecontrol and cause some real Damage in Eureka. I am wondering more why the Pals didnt sound any Alarm. I mean it seemed like they always react properly if something is not right, but with Allison they went for the lie instead of her Threatfactor.

She put a cylon chip in her brain.

Loved this ep!

I want PALs, too. Would help a lot with having two kids--one a teen. :lol:

Wasn't a fan of this timeline, but if Jo & Zane get together and Allison & Carter get together, I can deal. I can most definitely deal.

Stan Lee FTW! :D

So here's the problem with Eureka.
When you stop watching for like a month, you forget everything. I watched the last episode last month and I had a hard time remembering everything.
I feel like the Titan plot came out of nowhere. Unless it has been mentioned in earlier episodes and I forgot about it.

They've been building up to it every episode this season so far.

Not miss, just forget.
Like I said, it's been a month since I watched reprise.
