Re: Eureka - "I Do Over" (spoilers)

Hey, if the income from the product placement helps keep the show on the air, I can live with it.

The show just won't be the same without the lovely lascivious Ed Quinn. But yeah, I do agree I have a feeling we'll be seeing him again, just when it'll screw with Allison and Carter the most.

Second time in a week one of my favorite shows has essentially put a character on ice for only they know how long. *grumble* But it was done well. Boy, was it done well.

It really was, wasn't it?

I was watching the last scene going "And now there's a flash of light and he steps out... Ok, maybe he'll walk in the door explaining how he got sent back to that morning... Um, he comes in the tent and chides Carter for scaring his bride? Did they really just do that? Holy crap, they did!"

I wouldn't be surprised if they pull a 'Tholian Web' on us, and have Stark pop up every now and then, most likely to Allison. With her being the only one to see him, no one will believe her. Except Carter, who's been there more times than I can count.

Guess that explains it. Since I've never heard of the brand it may as well have been generic for all I knew.
Its the North American sister brand to Sure and Rexona.

Anybody else getting frustrated with skiffy's overuse of the advertisement "It's the END for somebody and EVERYTHING changes!"
As soon as I figured out it was a time-loop episode, I assumed that they'd kill any number of characters in one loop or another. Looks like I was wrong.

Of course, I also assumed that Jack would take advantage of one loop to raise objections as to why these two should not be wed.

Yeah, the Degree product placements are annoying, but they're not too obvious (except for the shirt a couple of weeks ago). The actual commercials are hideous. Thank God for TiVo.
Yeah I suppose they could of had that 2-3 second close up of Carter grabbing the Degree every single time the day restarted instead of just the first few times.
I thought it was amusing that they were able to reuse the same shot for multiple product placements.

True. but the shameless self-promotion of Skiffy is kinda fun...BSG a few weeks ago and tonight Doctor Who. "I love that show!"
That was pretty funny. Even though I knew he was going to say it each time, it was just the way he said it that made me laugh at each it time. "Oh my god, I love that show."

OMG! Must say, never saw that coming!

I'll miss Stark, but I've a feeling we'll see him around and I think he thinks so as well. It was pretty clear after re-watching the episode that Nathan knew he was going to buy it.

Re: Eureka - "I Do Over" (spoilers)

I thought this was one of the better episodes of Eureka---one of the best in quite awhile.

At first, I thought, "Oh no. A bad remake of Groundhog Day." But it actually had consequences and the ending was really very sad, even though I knew someone was destined to die.

I give it a "very good."

I have no doubt that Nathan Stark will return.

Eureka tends to do stand-alone episodes with an over-reaching arc through out the season to give the last few episodes of the season some scope.

In all honesty, to think Stark's permanently dead is the least likely of all the current options. Especially with no body and more than half of the current season left to air.

Just wait it out.

^I really really hope you're right. I cried a bit when he died and was in shock for a bit afterwards. I really like Nathan a lot, easily one of my favorite characters of the show.

Excellent rating from me.

So can I as long as the product placement is blatantly obvious like Zane's shirt from a couple of episodes ago. Ugh.

I wouldn't be surprised by that at all either. Like I said earlier, I think there's more to "I'll see you around" than just a farewell.

Re: Eureka - "I Do Over" (spoilers)

Just found this link to one of the Eureka screenwriter's blogs, in which he discusses Stark's departure for the show.

http://revealthescience.blogspot.com...ye-nathan.html

He also responds to the "Tholian Web" reference, 'no one is dead in scifi', etc. found in this thread and possibly elsewhere.

Seems Stark is gone for good and it was Ed Quinn's decision to leave the show.
