Eureka

Arrow Video

Small video labels lack the reach and recognition of the much bigger studios, but they have advantages when it comes to the content. Chief among them is that instead of simply pushing a new product line they’re able to hand-pick titles for release — new, old, cult classics or forgotten gems. They’re curating an affection for movies, and two of the best from across the pond are Arrow Video and Eureka! Entertainment. Neither label is a stranger to genre films, and this month sees them each bringing some ’70s-style horror into the world of high definition with new Blu-ray releases. Arrow is giving the HD treatment to David Cronenberg’s first feature film, Shivers (aka They Came From Within) while Eureka! is putting out a double feature of Blacula and Scream Blacula Scream.

Summer is a time for playing outside, sitting on the beach, going for a swim, taking a stroll in the park with a significant other while… oh, who am I kidding… Summer is for one thing: warm, entertaining television. And with the 2010-2011 television at an end this week, it’s time to look ahead to the wonderful crop that is set to begin at the top of next month. So with that, I present to you 10 Summer Shows Not To Miss! (But beware of some spoilers.)

Synopsis: Thanks to S.A.R.A.H., an emotion-generating program infects all artificial intelligence in Eureka—Deputy Andy falls in love with Jo and “Tiny,” that glitchy robot from earlier this season, chases down Jack, Kevin, Dr. Grant, and Fargo, who are all on a camping trip. Meanwhile, Henry begins to fall in love with Grace and feels obligated to tell her the truth about the Bridge Device.

Review: The beginning of this episode was an unabashed Subaru ad—Tiny rampages behind the guys, their car spins out, cut to close-up of the Subaru logo. It was so insanely blatant that it was hilarious and so bold that I actually kind of admire it. When it comes to product placement, Eureka is a frequent and shameless offender.

Synopsis: Objects from the 1940s mysteriously materialize throughout town while Warehouse 13’s Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) visits.

Review: Claudia Donovan on Eureka! How cool was that? No, really. How cool was it? I don’t watch Warehouse 13, so I have no idea if her appearance was supposed to be exciting or if it was just a gimmick. But speaking as a completely objective person with absolutely no allegiance to Warehouse 13, this cross over episode was tastefully done—Claudia’s presence in Eureka felt natural (even if she was a bit gabby) and because her arrival wasn’t the central focus of the episode, I wasn’t distracted by how gimmicky the whole thing may or may not have been. The bizarre chemistry she had with Fargo was enough to make me want to check out Warehouse 13, if only to find out how a self-possessed quipster like her could be attracted to a wormy supergeek like the Fargonator. Eureka’s writing staff, however, lose creativity points for titling this episode “Crossing Over.” I’m sure they thought that they were being clever—a cross over episode about objects “crossing over” from the past to the present called “Crossing Over”—but they were wrong.

Synopsis: In “All the Rage,” a glitch in a crowd-calming ray developed by a disgruntled scientist (Wil Wheaton) starts a rage epidemic at Global Dynamics and in “The Story of O2,” a cloud of self-propagating oxygen endangers the town during their Space Week Festival while Sheriff Carter visits Zoe at Harvard.

Review: I’d like to apologize to the faithful Eureka fans for neglecting my Eureka review duties for the past two weeks. But, in a way, my irresponsibility was kind of a good thing because it has given me the opportunity to veer away from the usual review format and compare and contrast the two episodes that I missed, paying special attention to the guest stars, the emotions underpinning all of the quirk, and those trivial subplots that seem to pop up in every episode.
