I dont know why it took me so long to give the show a chance, but when I finally did a couple months ago I really enjoyed it. Having finished off all 4 full seasons & the 12 episodes of season 5 already, I am now disappointed that tonight will be the last episode of this quirky light drama about an average intellegence sherriff & the genius scientists creating new technologies in a town that doesnt officially exist.
This will (barring some miracle of a TV Movie being done for the show) my 3rd & likely last blog about this wonderful show. Only my 2 previous Comic-Con cast returning blogs, 1 from 2010 http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/1/post/2010/07/eureka-stars-return-from-comic-con.html and from
2011 http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/1/post/2011/08/cast-of-eureka-return-from-the-2011-san-diego-comic-con.html do I really talk about this show.
Since I didnt follow the show too closely while it was around here, I dont know much about what might be happening in the finale, or if the writers knew going in they were going to be wrapping this story up. I just hope its good & leaves a good taste in my mouth when its all done.
Over the past few years I have run into members of this cast on occasion, and like I said, wasnt into the show yet, so I really didnt know at the time much about their roles on the show. Knowing what I do about it now... I wish I had made the trek out to Chilliwack at least once to see them shoot. However another local blogger has some terrific set reports, INCLUDING some on tonights finale here http://yvrshoots.com/category/eureka (MILD spoilers... read at own risk)
I will certainly miss Vincent & his array of culinary adventures, Sheriff Carter & Allison & seeing how their families would have transformed. Henry & Grace will be missed too. Do Lupo & Zane ever get hitched?... and of course, will Fargo & Holly have a happily ever after? These are just a few of the things that tonights episode need to try & close out. I'll even miss the emotionally unstable dependancy issue riddled house S.A.R.A.H. & her robo boyfriend Deputy Andy. I will even miss Dr. Parrish, as I felt after the Astraeus mission he showed some signs at times of possibly being not such a bad guy. I really hope Zoe & Taggart have some pressence in the finale as well. Be a tad disappointing if they arent there for it.
Ideally, I would LIKE to see SYFY (or anyone... Netflix, HI? *waves*) do a 1 off movie to wrap up things, since I AM SURE there will be some loose ends tonight. I even have some ideas of my own how to do things (based on my assumption of how some loose ends may play out before having seen it).
Pics below are of Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield & Neil Grayston returning from various promotional events over the years. As well as Neil & Wil Wheaton hanging out together 1 day when I caught them out & about.
My interactions with this cast have been few, but generally good. Neil & Salli are wonderful people & so friendly in person. Colin was generally good (last year returning from Comic-Con he was a bit growly..but he had just tweeted hours earlier about a negative encounter with an overly aggresive autograph hound in SoCal...sooo yeah). Even the 1 time I saw Wil Wheaton with Neil, he was ok, although the 2 times prior that I have seen him he completely snubbed anyone asking for a photo or an autograph. Someday I hope to run into the likes of Joe Morton, Felicia Day, Erica Cerra (although I have seen her filming an ep of Supernatural once), Jordan Hinson and Chris Gauthier as well.
To the entire cast & crew of the show. THANK YOU for 5 seasons worth of entertaining & brilliant TV. I am sorry SyFy is getting away from Sci-Fi TV & you all & us fans lose out because of it.
