Death count on Eureka?

Just wondering if anyone is keeping an ongoing deathcount for the TV show Eurkea...it seems like a pretty dangerous place to live!

They ought to have an episode where someone from OSHA comes in to investigate...

A few weeks ago, it got to the point where I could tell if the scientist-of-the-week was going to bite it by how big of an asshole he was, and how early in the episode he became insufferable.

That place would be a nightmare of secret experiments with unwilling human test subjects. If the show was a little more realistic you'd be having nightmares after every episode.

It's funny, I was just thinking about this the other day. They must be pretty much breaking even with scientific advancements vs. the loss of great scientific minds. Seriously, the writers need to lay off the relentless body count.

Re: Death count on Eureka?

This show became utterly ridiculous a looong time ago. I still catch it on occasion, it doesn't ask me to think and by Friday that's exactly what I'm looking for (also, Jack Carter is such a damn likeable guy.) But jeebus, how many times in one season can you almost destroy the whole town/west coast/planet Earth?

I hope at least 13 more times . I'm hearing rumors that this Friday is the series-, not just the season-finalé, but I can't find any confirmation of that.

EDIT: Yayy! EUReKA has been renewed . Earth trembles once more before the combined intellect of the world's most out-of-control geeks .

Re: Death count on Eureka?

The show is way too popular to be cancelled now. My mom loves it. They also get those product placement ads that make Smallville ads look classy and respectable. I think I was about to lose my mind on the Degree commercials and now they have that damn car they put in every single shot.

Re: Death count on Eureka?

I notice a lot of the skiffy shows suffer from this problem. Stargate was really bad too, they were wiping out soldiers at the rate of a small international war sometimes. And they were always such pointless throwaway deaths as well.

I know this doesn't quite apply, but it just reminded me of how, in "Wormhole X-Treme!" they made fun of "The Fifth Man" and how O'Neill was stepping around the piles of dead Jaffa while he was walking back to the gate.

I didn't know about the renewal, so I'm happy about that. I'm also really hoping they make Jamie Ray Newman a regular.
