Eureka
« on: July 20, 2012, 12:11:43 pm »
vary rarely do i watch the last episodes of a show that's been canceled.  they usually have lame endings and are not worth it.  this was different and i'm glad to have watched it to the end.  it also left the door open for later tv movies, or a new series.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

it was a quirky show.  nothing deep about it, but it was different and had good actors.  my kind of comedy.
