    Default Ed Quinn / Nathan Stark (season 3 spoilers)

    When Nathan first came onto the show....I hated him. 'Right as Raynes' helped a bit for me, but I didn't really warm up to him till the snarky banter later in season 2 and early in season 3.

    Come his death in season 3, I was really upset to see him go. And from what I hear, he will not be returning at any point in season 3. Adios, Stark

    TV Re: Ed Quinn / Nathan Stark (season 3 spoilers)

    I disliked him clear up until Right as Raynes. That put a very human layer on him and I liked him from then on.

    Still sad to see him go.

    What's the spoiler policy for EUReKA, btw? Is season 3.0 fair game or do we need spoilers?

    Sci-Fi Re: Ed Quinn / Nathan Stark (season 3 spoilers)

    Well, I guess I'm going to add on to my own discussion. I think that with Stark gone, there is an important element of EUReKA missing. One of the great things was the snark between Jack and Nathan. I miss the "I hate you even though I kinda like you" element.

    I agree. For awhile Zane kind of picked up that role, but even Zane's been

    I'm conflicted - I actually do hope they bring Nathan back eventually. But I also do understand and agree with most of the arguments about resurrecting dead characters all the time. And I would hate to see him brought back just to be killed off again like

    And after what happened with Carson in SGA, I've kind of developed a "be careful what you wish for" policy. In spite of all of that, I still can't keep from wishing that Nathan could be written back in somehow, eventually down the road.

    I just read this week that Ed Quinn has taken a role on the new CW show The Beautiful Life. So....I suppose depending on how that does, and how regular of a role it is might determine his availability for any appearances in S4. When do they start shooting S4 anyway? I thought it was in the spring - is that right?

    Default Re: Ed Quinn / Nathan Stark (season 3 spoilers)

    I was very fortunate to have lunch with Ed Quinn at Comic Con in July. He told me that he was very frustrated with what happened to his character in Season 2. He said the creator of the series, a good friend of his, left the show, and the people who took over afterward sent his character in a different dirrection, which he didn't like. He does have a 6 year contract with eureka, so, he said it's very likely he will be back.

    By the way, he's a charming man... but unfortunately, he's married.

    Oh that's cool that you got to have lunch with him. I'd read that actually - in some interview or something after I Do Over aired - that he wasn't happy about the direction his character went. From what I read, he wanted Nathan to go more darkside.

    I hadn't heard, though, about the six year contract, and the good possibility of him coming back. That's interesting.

    The CW's The Beautiful Life was the first cancellation of the season this year, after only two episodes. Ed Quinn was supposed to appear on the show as a recurring character, playing the husband of Elle Macpherson's character, but I doubt that any of his episodes will ever air now (that's assuming they even got to film them).

    Personally, I wouldn't have watched anyway - the show was definitely not my style - but I thought Ed Quinn fans might be interested.

    I wonder who he's talking about here. Andrew Cosby and Jaime Paglia are the series creators, and they're both still involved with the show

    According to this interview (which was posted right after I Do Over), Ed's talking about Andrew Cosby, and it makes it sound like Andrew hasn't been involved with the show since S1. In a recent interview with Jamie Ray Newman, they listed Jamie Paglia and Charlie Craig as show creators - no mention of Cosby.

    http://www.visiteureka.net/interviews.html?i=21

    [Ed Quinn] But shows change and this show changed considerably after Andrew Cosby's departure ... suddenly there wasn't much need for conflict ... not much need for that kind of dynamic between the characters. In addition, Nathan Stark was created to carry the serial aspects of the show ... the mythology. With all of those story lines ending or being abandoned (The Consortium. The Artifact. Kevin. Global Dynamics as a somewhat dark, somewhat sinister and secretive research facility) With all of that changing, Stark really didn't have much to do anymore but stand around with a clipboard, apologizing for his past behavior.

    VisitEureka.net - He was almost de-fanged.

    Ed - He was. He was almost de-fanged. There's another analogy we can use, but de-fanged is probably the best one. (laughs) We'll leave it at that.

    Well considering it's almost 2010 now and I don't even think they've started filming yet....

    I'm trying to convince Ed to get his own web pade started. If so, I'll make sure he lets everyone know about the future of his character on Eureka, if any. So, wish me luck on talking him into this.

    Stark was my no. 1 favorite from the beginning He was well written... Not overly heroic and likable 'good guy' like Henry and many other characters, but not classical 'bad guy' either, even when he clearly had some thirst for power and so on. Also dialogues he had part of were often hilarious.

    So no surprise, I was very disappointed when he went and died. But I don't wish him back. Eureka isn't sci-fi enough to make it happen, not with remotely plausible way. Not that too many other things in Eureka can be labeled as even remotely plausible, and even when I am trying to do my best with not thinking it, sometimes it is just too difficult and ruins the episode.

    So I'm a brand new fan. Actually, started by watching all of season three because that's what was available to me. And I absolutely fell in love with Nathan.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but he died in a time distortion/parallel universe/cosmic rift type thing, yes? Seems like that'd be very easy to bring him back from. Like, he didn't actually die, he was just...transported and is trying to fight his way back. Fargo even says "He's gone" not "He's dead."

    I think the show will suffer without the aspect of ambition and cool logic he brings to it. Plus, if Jack and Allison finally fall for each other and Nathan comes back.... Well, you have to admit it'd be interesting.
