Okay, I'm a Sci-Fi geek. I admit it freely.

Eureka was a TV show that was just to be used as filler last summer, when all the other shows were in reruns. It rapidly became a runaway hit with a large fan base. And I can see why -- Eureka was fantastic. Intelligent, snarky, great characters (even the bad guys), and a sharp writing team, the dialogue was Real and quite funny.

It survived, unlike a lot of other filler shows.

The new season of Eureka started this week, on the Sci-Fi channel, Tuesday nights. Like last year, the DVR is set to record every episode. I haven't watched this one yet (the DH is a fan too, and since he's in OKC until the weekends, I'm saving the watching for him being home), but from what I've seen and read, this season is going to be just as good as the last one.

It helped fill an empty little hole in my heart, the one where Firefly used to live. Sure, it's not in the future, or in space, but it's just as smart and funny, and the characters just as Real. Nothing will ever replace my beloved Firefly, but Eureka definitely helps.

If you haven't given it a watch, I highly recommend it. That, and Sheriff Carter and 'bad guy' Stark are both fabulous eye-candy.
