I literally turned off my TV in abject disgust after watching the Eureka pilot...and they turned it into their new flagship series pushing aside Stargate in the process? And now come season 3, even the critics and initial viewers are over the "honeymoon period", its not "new" anymore, and they're realizing how formulaic it is.
Eureka is still a lot of fun. I don't think anyone expects it to be terribly deep, but then neither was Stargate most of the time. It's got good characters, and usually manages to avoid getting *too* out-there.
Besides, all of us who work for companies contracting with DoD *wish* we had projects half as cool as the stuff on that show.
