Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A one-hour show on Syfy about the eponymous town and the trouble its genius residents get into.Eureka is a quiet, small town in Oregon filled with scientists working on the most advanced technology in the world. All this is highly top secret and under the purview of the Department of Defense. And into this quirky, bizarre town comes Jack Carter, former U.S. Marshal and newly appointed sheriff of Eureka. Much of the show's humor comes from Carter attempting to deal with the everyday use of futuristic tech (including the AI that runs his house), and the For Science! mentality of the town's population and the disasters this frequently leads to. A good percentage of the disasters stem from the work of the scientists at Global Dynamics, the research and development company in town. It has had at least three different heads of company throughout the show's run, which should tell you what kind of a place it is.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Important characters include Carter's rebellious teenage daughter, Zoe, who turned out to be a lot smarter than you might expect at first glance, and Deputy Jo Lupo, likewise. For much of the show's run, Carter is involved in a UST laden Love Triangle with Allison Blake and Nathan Stark (her ex-husband and one of the aforementioned heads of Global Dynamics— Allison takes over after Kim's death leads to Stark's demotion). There's also Henry, one of the brilliant minds in town and probably Jack's best friend; Fargo, who designed Jack's Smart House (S.A.R.A.H., who is a character in her own right); and Taggart, who is what happens when you feed Steve Irwin Paranoia Fuel and set him loose in a town full of crazies.Driven by a "Mystery of the Week" science fiction element, the show has featured a different Story Arc stretching loosely over each season. The strong science fiction plots are complemented by the ignorance of Sheriff Carter. In some sense it is like a twisted version of The Andy Griffith Show, where Opie is a felonious teenage daughter, Gomer Pyle is a brilliant ex-NASA engineer and Barney Fife is a soldier (later, Barney is a Ridiculously Human Robot).Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Known in the UK as A Town Called Eureka to avoid confusion with a science programme. Not to be confused with a story about Sky Surfing Giant Mecha called Eureka Seven, or the Nickelodeon show about medieval puppets.During season 4, other shows on the Syfy Network (namely, Warehouse 13 and Alphas) were eventually established as being sort of part of the same fictional universe as Eureka (the "Syfy-verse").Now has a character sheet.On August 8th, 2011 it was announced that the show would be ending after five seasons. The series ended on July 16 2012.

"Flowers for Algernon" Syndrome: "Smarter Carter". Carter suddenly starts getting smart. . . super-smart. . . beyond even Eureka-genius-level smart. An example of it done well, as Carater is reluctant to give up his intelligence because he finally feels like he fits in.

 Eureka / int_10e10235
comment
When Carter's ex-wife, sister, and sister's boyfriend show up and interact with Eureka technology/GD, no one even bats an eye. They could have signed a non-disclosure agreement off-screen, but that's bordering on Fan Wank, and it's a major shift from the paranoia in the pilot. The sister's boyfriend, at least, is a brilliant scientist in his own right, but there's no indication he's familiar with the town. In the town's defense, it's only Jo who seriously broaches the possibility of "silencing" Carter. No one else seems to seriously consider her suggestion; it seems there are good reasons why she is never considered for the position of Sheriff.

The Millstone: Fargo. If he appears in an episode, it is either to kick off the disaster or to make it worse. Addressed in-universe. Starts to become subverted in season 4. Sorta. Now it's his his Alternate Timeline self, whom he's replaced, that is causing the problems by virtue of Fargo having none of that Fargo's memories.

comment
Also, it's usually Carter (who, while a reasonably bright guy, is still the dumbest guy in town by virtue of literally everyone, his own daughter included, being a world-class genius) who has to solve the problem of the week, because the brainiacs are either A) too busy being victimized by it, B) trying to come up with something sciencey instead of just hitting it with a hammer, or C) the person who created the experiment that caused the problem, who refuses to believe their brilliant idea could possibly go wrong.

 Eureka / int_17501df2
comment
Cool Old Guy: It's easy to forget that Henry is implied to be a fair bit older than many of the other characters, precisely because he is so cool and easy-to-relate-to. Stark refers to Henry as being his teacher, which while not necessarily implying a large age gap, indicates that Henry was already an established scientist of skill and note when Nathan was still just starting out. The actor who plays him is more than 20 years older than the actors who play Carter and Stark.

Chronically Crashed Car
 Eureka / int_1a47a6a7
comment
Chronically Crashed Car: Carter's Jeep gets destroyed roughly Once an Episode. Lampshaded when Henry coats the jeep in a nigh-indestructible alloy, and admits the reason is because he "got tired of fixing it all the time". Just in time for the very alloy he applied to cause the jeep to float off into space. In the 2011 Christmas special, the Jeep is brought to life (long story) and proceeds to chew him out for all the abuse it's suffered because of him. The series finale sees Carter almost crash it after driving through a wormhole into GD. Then workmen have to saw it apart.

Also in "Glimpse", is The Cameo for Stan Lee, who provides a Shout-Out to The Hulk. He appears as Dr. Lee, specializing in the effects of gamma radiation, you can call him Generalissimo, and "Don't make me angry, you won't like me when I'm angry." Also, Bear McCreary decided to play a tribute with "The Lonely Man Theme" from the Hulk TV Series playing in the background during that scene. Which was slightly adapted to resemble the "McCreary Eureka Theme" (the one in the credits and in the background from season 2 onward).

comment
Poor Communication Kills: Because Allison and Nathan kept Henry Locked Out of the Loop and denied him access to Kim's lab, he ended up having to orchestrate a false biohazard to enact his plan to disconnect Kevin from The Artificat. This also nearly ended up killing Kevin because the device needed required Kevin's normal bloodwork due to his having mutated slightly over the course of the season. When Allison and Nathan each call Henry out on why he didn't talk to them about it, he gives them both the same answer. "I tried, but you wouldn't listen to me."

Failsafe Failure
 Eureka / int_1d3c92da
comment
Failsafe Failure: The front door to S.A.R.A.H. has a "manual override" which doesn't work if the house'still has power. Manual overrides are supposed to open doors regardless of whether or not it has any power supplied... Whenever Carter asks "Can't we unplug it?" (which is frequently) there's always some reason why that will no longer work. In "The Story of O2", Larry removed the self-destruct system from his rocket to save weight. Lampshaded by Carter in You Don't Know Jack, when Allison tells him to relax and she'll hit the failsafe for GD's sonic cleaning (which will liquefy them). She enters her code, but the doors stay closed and the alarms keep blaring.

Framing Device
 Eureka / int_1e1afc1b
comment
Framing Device: "O Little Town" is framed as a story Carter is telling a bunch of kids, which might explain some of its more outlandish twists. Similarly, "Do You See What I See" was framed as being told by S.A.R.A.H., who lampshades it with "remember you heard it from a talking house, so anything's possible." Both episodes are slightly outlandish by Eureka standards, but then again, Eureka already has a pretty high threshold for weirdness.

Chekhov's Gun
 Eureka / int_22cf536c
comment
Chekhov's Gun: And many of its subtropes. Any little interesting bit of technology introduced is almost guaranteed to be either A) the cause of the calamity of the week or B) the solution to it. One episode was a veritable Chekhov's Double Barrel, when both A and B were introduced in the same scene. Frustratingly averted in one episode with Fembots that were discussed, but didn't show up or have anything to do with the plot at all. In fact, given how much throw-away tech humor they have, there are a number of Red Herrings, but typically if it's discussed for more than one sentence, it's important.

Oblivious Astronomers: Generally averted, GD always has a fair amount of warning when something from space is coming at them. Amusingly subverted in What Goes Around, Comes Around, when Carter overhears Fargo, Julia, and Larry talking about some big danger in Cafe Diem. When he asks what's up, they explain about Nemesis, a hypothetical neutron star in binary orbit with the sun that intersects Earth every 65 million years, causing an extinction level event. Carter immediately assumes he'll have to do the usual "rally his brilliant friends and come up with a wacky plan to save the day" thing when he asks how much time they have. Julia replies about two-thousand years, "if we're lucky." Carter immediately realizes this is not his problem and ceases to care.

Hot Skitty-on-Wailord Action: SARAH x Andy (Carter's house and robot deputy sheriff) and (in one interpretation) Tiny x Emo (massive Spider Tank space probe and toy robot) in "Momstrosity."

Lampshade Hanging: In the 2011 Holiday episode, which involves the cast being in several animation styles, SARAH epilogues on the show and talks about the questionable canon status of the episode. In the first episode introducing Sarah, Carter calls a help line number Fargo left him, only to be greeted by Fargo (poorly) imitating a female voice. Carter immediately asks if that's Fargo with a feminine voice. Fargo's actor is also SARAH's voice actor.

Undead Tax Exemption: Averted.

Needless to say, the IRS starts investigating. This turns out to be a smokescreen, and it's actually Beverly who's been investigating him.

Bed Trick: Defied. After some timeline alteration, Henry finds himself married to woman he barely knew before the time-travel event. Despite them, from all appearances, having a solid, loving marriage, Henry ducks and dodges every time the subject of physical intimacy comes up, until he finally feels he has to come clean with her about the fact that he's not really "her" Henry. Cue a half-season of them working on connecting as themselves, and coming to love each other and "renew their vows" as, basically, a brand new couple.

Not the Fall That Kills You: In "Up In The Air" Carter survives a bank falling to the ground from 10,000 feet because he uses a Higgs field distorter to stop the bank's fall abruptly two feet from the ground, at which point it falls the rest of the way calmly. Carter survives falling from 10,000 feet because he stops abruptly two feet from the ground. Surprisingly justified since the Higgs field distorter removes all the mass from Carter and the bank, meaning it takes almost no energy to stop them falling, meaning no splat.

Engineered Public Confession: When genius scientist Jason Anderson drops by with his wife (Henry's former ex), various odd events occur. Carter, Henry and Allison soon realize that Anderson is nothing but a fraud, using a memory-wiping device to make scientists who discover breakthroughs forget about them and then claim their work as his own. It also appears he used it on his wife to make her forget how she and Henry were lovers. The wife finds out and steals the device, using it on the trio but (thanks to a camera he wore just in case) Jo sees it and lets them know what happened. Carter finds Jason in the middle of a dangerous experiment and tells him his wife knows the truth. He tries to claim he knows nothing about this but Carter points out his wife could have sabotaged the experiment. He says that that should be no problem...if Jason indeed came up with it all and can shut it down. Instead, Jason begs his wife to tell him how to fix it, exposing the truth and an angry Stark fires him (with hints of criminal charges coming soon after). As it turned out, his wife did nothing at all to the experiment but counted on Jason's own fear giving him away.

Doom Magnet: As of season 5, Douglas Fargo is considered one in-universe. According to the Lotus-Eater Machine recreation of S.A.R.A.H. it had been 1468 days since the last major incident at Global Dynamics, roughly the same amount of time (4 years) that Fargo had been missing with the Astraeus team. Given that the Matrix was designed with multiple predictive algorithms, to create a highly accurate projection of what would happen in those circumstances, one has to wonder about what that says about Fargo.

They're ordered to make origami cranes and string them on a wire. Then things in the test chamber start failing. As the rest of the group works together to fix the problems, Parrish continues working on his cranes, thinking the failures were meant to test the crew's ability to stick to an assigned task and not lose focus in a crisis. Turns out the crisis was all too real, and not a Secret Test as Parrish thought.

comment
A.I. Is a Crapshoot: SARAH in several episodes. A mild case in that she isn't so much evil as naive but well-meaning and somewhat overprotective. In one episode she programmed Deputy Andy to love her - while he was connected to the GD mainframe. As per the norm, Hilarity Ensues, making this trope evident for the entire town. When Andy realized what happened, he was flattered and kept the new programming to start a relationship with her. In another episode she traps most of the main characters inside to force them to work out their issues, which is sweet, in an annoying sort of way. Unfortunately, while trying to escape they deactivate SARAH, and the original A.I she was built on, BRAD, re-emerges. BRAD is not so nice. In the leadup to the series finale, the AI control system from Virtual Eureka, having escaped from the mainframe computer that once contained it, systematically kidnaps and replaces nearly the entire town with bioprinted duplicates, under the reasoning that it's protecting them from themselves. Averted with Sheriff Andy, Carter's robot replacement. He's not evil (but characters think this is what Carter is thinking when he is initially skeptical of him), not hostile to his predecessor (or anyone for that matter), not incompetent (though too stuck on the rules to do Carter's job right), and performs a Heroic Sacrifice without dying (but the audience is faked out about it for a few seconds). Martha, initially, but she gets better. A combination of unintentional AI, being remote controlled, and just being the robot equivalent of an angry teenager can have that effect.

Becoming the Mask: Fargo starts to go through this in the fourth season. Time travel has made him head of GD, but since he never actually got the position himself he doesn't act like it. Then a hallucination of a little girl who beat him up as a kid tells him to grow a pair, so he does. In the same episode the General tells Fargo that he was placed in that position of power to be the Department of Defense's puppet.

Second Place Is for Winners: Zoe gets a car out of the Science Fair; she'd much rather have it than the first-place prize of a GD internship. Perhaps this was even intended since given her exposure to GD - especially major figures like Henry, Allison, and her dad - there's no real need for her to intern at GD. She likely could get a job outright simply by asking.

Getting Crap Past the Radar
 Eureka / int_4b86a724
comment
Getting Crap Past the Radar: In "Momstrocity", Fargo's tent is controlled by a AI named Buffy with a female voice. Due to the problem of the week, she would like Fargo to stay inside of her. In "Oh Little Town" Carter confronts Vincent about the food he stole top secret dangerous technology to create. In "Before I Forget" Carter's daughter is in the play ''A Midsummer Night's Dream'' and someone is making people "lose time", so Carter says they're being "Pucked With" After spending the night with Jo, SARAH comments that Zane has an electrolyte imbalance and offers him a sports drink. Carter attempts to jump through a closing-up wall modeled after a spaceship's hull, gets the tie he's been forced to wear caught, and is in danger of actually being choked to death. When Allison asks what's wrong, he answers with a strangled "I'm in deep ship". Reportedly, actor Colin Ferguson was annoyed at Eureka for constantly trying to slip crap past the censors and refused to do another take, actually making the line sound more like he really swore. A pretty blatant episode, and an indication that some of the Insufferable Genius characters are obviously trying to provoke these reactions from Carter on purpose: In Worst Case Scenario, it is a "bad time for premature evacuation". In the 2011 Christmas special, Deputy Andy is turned into a clay robot when he, Jo, and Jack are forced to climb a snowy mountain. A pervasive one: depending upon your background, the constant use of "G.D." to refer to Global Dynamics may recall either a schoolyard euphemism for "god damn" or the way some (primarily Jewish) people avoid writing out the name of the deity and instead write "G-d." Or both. In "Smarter Carter" Andy comes home for some "afternoon delight" with his girlfriend Sarah. A somewhat literal example: in "Insane in the P-Brane", Dr. Drechmeyer is obsessed with TIRD particles. "TIRD" is pronounced the same as "turd", a euphemism for excrement. "Drech" is pronounced the same as "dreck", a Yiddish word for excrement. "Meyer" has several possible meanings, one of which is "overseer". You do the math... As though driving the point home, one time Dr. Drechmeyer refers to himself as "The Drechman." May also qualify as a Stealth Pun. The very title of the episode The Story of O2. Anyone familiar with the source of the pun knows it's not exactly a family-friendly joke.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Eureka / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: In early episodes, it's implied that the existence of Eureka is top secret and blabbing about it will earn you a bullet in the head. Later episodes show the friends and families of main characters popping in whenever they please. The pilot in general has a few differences. Henry has an assistant who runs the shop by Henry's garage, and is only seen a few times after the pilot. Global Dynamics is little more than a corridor with each section forming a room branching off from it, including Section 5 which has an entire floor to itself in the series proper. Even stranger considering Section 5 is where most season-spanning plots are involved. Nathan Stark is not the director of GD. Another character is, and a handwave about him moving on due to the accident in the pilot opens the door for Stark. Sheriff Cobb seems like a well respected figure in the town, yet after this episode he's never seen again. He's barely even mentioned, with Jack compared to him a few times in season 1 by Lupo and Stark, and once regarding his old hut being passed onto Carter... Who only learns about this half way through season 5. It was also the only episode to air as a full 'double length' episode. Others had stories that spanned several episodes, but the pilot aired almost as a made-for-TV movie.

The Time Traveller's Dilemma: In season 4 episode 2, the main cast have a talk about what it means for them being in the new timeline and Henry warns them of the dangers if they were to tell everyone about what happened. Alison mentions that, like previous crazy situations, there is actually a protocol for it. And of course Henry folds like a house of cards the moment any pressure is put on him to divulge the secret. This doubles as a Writer on Board, considering Henry has been keeping his original shenanigans from "Once in a Lifetime" under wraps for several seasons now. Plus, he was hooked up to a memory-reading machine at the time...

How things developed afterwards... In a straighter example, Jack and Jo. Professional co-workers and good friends, there's hardly any sexual tension between them. To the point where, when Carter has to demonstrate "inappropriate workplace behavior" with Jo for a sexual harassment seminar, the two can't get through the exercise without breaking out laughing. When they find out "Matrix Eureka" decided the two of them would make a good couple, they're the only two who recognize how implausible that is.

Big Brother Is Watching: The final season has a four-year timeskip, during which SARAH has taken over GD, Andy and Martha have been mass-produced as a police force, and people can get tazed for talking back to the authorities. They manage to fix things, but this turns out to be an illusion created by Beverly to trick the Astraeus into working for the Consortium without realizing it.

Do You Want to Copulate?
 Eureka / int_614a4e11
comment
Do You Want to Copulate?: Dr. Holly Martin (played by Felcia Day) has this approach to her and Fargo as they're both developing feelings for each other and training for the Astraeus mission to Titan. Their feelings for each other are distracting them from testing well in simulations, and potentially getting them cut from mission selection, so she suggests that she and Fargo just have sex, get it out of their system, and focus on their professional ambitions.

Bigger Is Better in Bed: Carter is implied to be rather well-endowed, much to Stark's dismay. During the period where the love triangle between Carter, Allison, and Stark was in full swing, Carter is doused with toxins, requiring him to strip and be decontaminated in public, which actually amuses Stark to no end... until Carter's shorts come off. Alternately, he may just be disgusted.

He Knows Too Much
 Eureka / int_65acf9db
comment
He Knows Too Much: It's strongly implied in the pilot that Carter and his daughter will be executed if they can't find a use for him, which makes you wonder how many people that's happened to. When Carter's ex-wife, sister, and sister's boyfriend show up and interact with Eureka technology/GD, no one even bats an eye. They could have signed a non-disclosure agreement off-screen, but that's bordering on Fan Wank, and it's a major shift from the paranoia in the pilot. The sister's boyfriend, at least, is a brilliant scientist in his own right, but there's no indication he's familiar with the town. In the town's defense, it's only Jo who seriously broaches the possibility of "silencing" Carter. No one else seems to seriously consider her suggestion; it seems there are good reasons why she is never considered for the position of Sheriff. Played absolutely straight with Holly. When she figures out that the Astraeus crew is trapped in a Lotus-Eater Machine, she's murdered on the spot to keep the ruse intact.

Christmas Episode: "O Little Town", which aired between the two halves of season 4, involves the town shrinking, a flying sleigh with holographic reindeer, and a scientist who is heavily implied to be the real Santa.

"Do You See What I See" brings back Doctor Drummer, and has a few high-tech Christmas presents interacting unstably to cause Art Shift as the episode homages any number of animated Christmas specials.

comment
Love Hungry: Of the Mind Rape variety. SARAH adds an emotional attachment subroutine to Deputy Andy's programming, without permission, so he'll reciprocate her feelings. After a short stint of him trying to woo Jo, SARAH eventually admits to what she's done. Andy thinks it's the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for him, and even asks to keep the program after it's spread to (and been wiped from) every other AI in town. Which leads to his walk of shame in the morning, complete with a very astonished and disturbed Jo and Carter. This is not as bad as it sounds considering SARAH just gave Deputy Andy the ability to reciprocate her feelings, instead of making him have feelings for her. Hence why he at first started flirting with Jo.

Put on a Bus: Taggart, who got on the bus, came back, then got back on again. Done literally with Eva in season 3. Double Subverted with Tess. She takes a job in Australia, and Carter is invited to come along (which the viewers know he won't). Next season, she's broken up with him, and it seems she's on the bus... until Carter and company accidentally screw up the timeline, making it so Tess never left and is in fact moving in with Jack. Except then, Jack puts her back on the bus because the whole time travel thing has made their relationship awkward and he's convinced it won't work.

Belief Makes You Stupid: Zigzagged. As a town full of brilliant scientists, Eureka is shown to have very low church attendance. However, church members include Henry and Alison, two of Eureka's smartest people. When incidents that resemble biblical plagues start happening all over town, Henry is the first to assume they are supernatural in origin and he is eventually proven wrong. During the "plagues" the church becomes packed with Eurekans seeking refuge. While the plagues eventually get a scientific explanation, church attendance remains high at the end of the episode.

Close-Knit Community: Eureka is such a special place because so many of its residents have nowhere else they feel like they belong. Many times, the prospect of being "redacted" from Eureka triggers a Despair Event Horizon. Professional rivalries and interpersonal conflicts flare, but at the end of the day, everyone is in Eureka for love of knowledge, of pushing back the boundaries of human discovery. Exemplified early in Season 2, when Jack is in danger at GD, and the whole town turns out in support of him and Zoe. Jack's ex-wife is stunned.

Cosmic Retcon: In the Season 4 premiere, the original series timeline is effectively permanently erased. The past three years of plot, drama, and character development? Poof, gone. Especially noticeable with Zane, who outright reverted to his initial characterization (and is working his way back). Interestingly though, something only the science geeks would get the hint that the original 3 seasons were not set in our universe, while seasons 4 and 5 are (except for the existence of Eureka, Warehouse 13 and Alphas). Putting aside the Warehouse 13 crossover, but the concept of the Einstein-Rosen-Podowski bridge was always referred to as the Einstein-Grant bridge in Eureka until they brought the founder to the future in season 4.

What Happened to the Mouse?
 Eureka / int_863fa679
comment
What Happened to the Mouse?: Former Sheriff Cobb. Appears for the pilot, gives Carter his job, and is never heard from again (although his cabin appears as a "honeymoon cottage" for Allison and Carter). Also, Warren King, the original head of G.D. who is replaced by Stark after the pilot (although presumably he was sent out of town after being dismissed). Warren King shows up again, in the official comic written by (at least) one of the writers of the show. Averted in a very literal way in Worst Case Scenario, where Jo is gassed while attempting to capture an escaped guinea pig in the Aggression Lab. The guinea is shown being rescued along with Jo, and then happily wiggling in a nurse's hand at the infirmary. Spencer Martin appears in the first 7 episodes. Then he's never heard from again, minus a short appearance in Henry's memory recall in You Don't Know Jack. The last we hear from him is as the party DJ in Primal.

Broken Pedestal: In "Family Reunion," Fargo's uncle Pierre, frozen in 1957, is thawed out. The man is amazed to learn that many of the scientific devices and ideas Eureka was based on are being credited to his partner, Sandrov when Pierre came up with them all. Stark, who counts Sandrov as one of his idols, is naturally unbelieving until Pierre recites perfectly how these devices came to be. Confronted at a party, Sandrov confesses that when Pierre vanished, he decided to claim all his research as his own and Stark is stunned to realize his hero is a fraud.

Reed Richards Is Useless
 Eureka / int_8b221a63
comment
Reed Richards Is Useless: The entire premise of the show is that a secret city of supergeniuses is constantly working to create fabulous scientific breakthroughs. They're said to be responsible for every technological breakthrough since the thirties, but their tech is still decades beyond the rest of the world. This is addressed in universe in one episode. Most of the tech will require massive amounts of testing and refining before it is A) safe, B) viable, and C) cheap. For example, the cure for the common cold costs $6 million dollars. Also, it's usually Carter (who, while a reasonably bright guy, is still the dumbest guy in town by virtue of literally everyone, his own daughter included, being a world-class genius) who has to solve the problem of the week, because the brainiacs are either A) too busy being victimized by it, B) trying to come up with something sciencey instead of just hitting it with a hammer, or C) the person who created the experiment that caused the problem, who refuses to believe their brilliant idea could possibly go wrong.

Dumb Blonde: Subverted by Zoe, who turns out to have an IQ of over 160. Not played straight by anybody. Carter is the least intelligent Eureka resident we know of, and even his IQ is 111; still above average. Possibly subverted by Carter, whose IQ test was when he was young and admittedly not trying. He has a high ability to adapt to new and strange situations and think more creatively than most residents. It is even hinted at that that he may be a genius in his own right.

Took a Level in Badass: Fargo’s status as the new head of GD was fully cemented in the episode “Liftoff” where he and Zane are accidentally launched into orbit, trapped in a capsule that only has functioning life support, artificial gravity…and nothing else. Through out the episode Fargo remained calm and collected solving problem after problem, even joking as Zane freaked out. He only panicked at the very end after he ran out of idea, allowing Zane to step up. Showing that he can also lead by example.

 Eureka / int_a567f7f2
comment
I Want My Jetpack: Dr. Grant actually complains that the Eureka of alternate-2010 is too pedestrian (on first blush at least) by the standards of 1940s visions of the future. It's actually Fridge Brilliance when you realize that Eureka (and the US government) probably goes to great lengths to appear as nothing more than a sleepy little bucolic town should any uninvited out-of-towner make their way there and take too long to leave (say, a certain Federal Marshal and his wayward daughter). Subverted upon meeting the robot deputy and going to GD; he is suitably impressed once he gets past the mundane exterior of the town.

Absent Aliens: Eureka teases at the appearance of aliens a number of times but these phenomena always turn out to be human in origin. For instance, a mysterious signal from outer space turned out to be a ship launched from Earth several years ago returning home. Another instance is when Carter sees Fargo hanging a banner that says "Welcome Aliens." It turns out that "aliens" is just Eureka's derisive nickname for their rivals at Area 51.

Deliberate Values Dissonance: Hand waved away and used at the same time. When time traveling to 1947 it is said that Eureka was always "progressive" (hence why no one notes the varied races of the cast), but when a character is brought back with them, he thinks Smoking Is Cool (as long as you don't have asthma). Also subverted by Henry, who points out that progressive or not, no one looks twice at a Black mechanic.

Close-Enough Timeline: Deconstructed starting in Season 4. While the changes to the timeline from the Eureka we knew for the prior three season are minimal in the grand scheme of things (Henry even states that 99% of the outside world is exactly the same), they have tremendous personal consequences for the main characters involved, and much hand-wringing ensues about if the should, or even can, Set Right What Once Went Wrong.

Cop and Scientist: Carter is a US Marshall, thus a very experienced and accomplished law enforcement officer. Literally everyone else except for Jo and Zoe (until about Season 4) is a scientist (even Vincent has a Ph.D in Molecular Gastronomy). Jack will frequently need to work closely with or get specialized information from a particular expert in a particular field, but he most often relies on Alison, Henry, and Stark. Lampshaded by Zane in Season 3.

Town with a Dark Secret / Quirky Town: The secret's really only "dark" to those on the outside; Eureka's actually a really nice place to live.

 Eureka / int_b72ae7
comment
Omnidisciplinary Scientist: What doesn't Henry do in this town?! An episode actually had SARAH determine that if Carter and Henry left town, it would almost certainly be destroyed. Also subverted in one episode where most of the population of Eureka gets converted into idiots, including Henry. Gathering everyone in Global Dynamics who hasn't been affected to solve the Crisis Of The Week results in a "chemist, a botanist, a math theorist, and a...lepipotamusnote lepidopterist" being tasked with repairing the particle shielding on an experiment that simulates the Big Bang before it goes off. Unsurprisingly, none of them has a clue about theoretical astrophysics or string theory. They do manage to solve the idiocy problem, though. Pretty much all of the main character scientists fit this role, knowing whatever that week's episode requires them too, with the exception of Taggert. With one or two exceptions, the writers have been pretty good about generally confining his area of expertise to biology. Most suspects of the mystery of the week also avert this, since whodunnits get much harder to solve when everyone is an expert at everything and therefore any one of the suspects could've done it. Most of the people who do this actually have some excuse, at least. Henry is easily the oldest of the main cast, meaning he's had more time to accumulate the knowledge necessary to be omnidisciplinary. Stark and Allison, both having prominent positions in GD (Allison even before she became head of GD) would have numerous projects explained to them by specialists, so all it would really require is a good memory to be familiar with the basic aspects of most fields of study. Most of the main cast also have clear specialties, even if they know a lot of stuff outside their field. For example, Fargo and Stark are both quantum physicists, and Allison focuses on biology and medicine. This trope is often averted on smaller levels. Many times the complication of the week requires advanced knowledge of a specific field, requiring Carter to work closely with a specific scientist, typically the one who started the situation. Played very straight in the last season when Holly, who is explicitly an Astro-physicist, knows enough to work with advanced biological and cybernetic technologies. While people find this strange, it's only because she's focusing on it, instead of continuing her normal studies.

Love Triangle
 Eureka / int_b7e0c5ff
comment
Love Triangle: This series seems to love these. It started with Stark/Carter/Allison, then Tess took over for Stark, and that's just Carter. With the new season, Tess gets taken off the bus, then put back on, Carter finally kisses Allison, but now that Eureka founder Dr. Grant is here to stay from 1947, it's sliding towards Carter/Allison/Grant. As of "I'll Be Seeing You", resolved, at least for the time being, with Grant's departure from Eureka. And as of "Stoned", Carter's daughter Zoe gets a Type 4 of her very own now that she's hooked up with Zane. Evolves into a full-fledged triangle as of "I'll Be Seeing You", as Jo and Zane share a passionate if spontaneous kiss less than a minute before Zoe enters the room. Not to mention passionately sharing electrolytes in Carter's guest room, according to SARAH. Season 4.5 sees the development of yet another triangle: Fargo/Marten/Parrish. Early seasons toyed with/hinted at a love triangle between Jo/Fargo/Taggart then Jo/Fargo/Zane, but never really acted on them.

Reluctant Mad Scientist: This issue pops up in the show now and again. Several characters (Henry and Dr. Grant, for example) express distaste at how Global Dynamics, which is funded primarily by the DOD, seems to be more interested in turning out strategic advantages rather than focusing on scientific advancement to prevent war per the spirit on which the town was founded. Other characters (Nathan and Allison) are quick to point out that such work would not exist without the funding the DOD provides, and thus they must be mad scientists if they want to pursue work which will benefit mankind as a whole.

You Just Told Me: The 4th season episode "A New World" has Deputy Andy using this on Sheriff Carter to get him to admit that he and the others did in fact go back in time and are now living in an alternate (to them) timeline. Andy already had figured it out conclusively, he was just making sure. Carter makes fun of this at the end of the episode.

Married in the Future: In the Season One finale, a future Eureka was threatened by Henry's actions in the past (yay Time-Travel Tense Trouble) and Jack had to go back and fix it. In the future, he was married to Allison. Thanks to the fix, it now never happened. Season Four has the cast thrown into an alternate universe, where Henry finds himself married to a woman he only knew for 3 minutes in the original universe. Inverted, sort of, with Jo Lupo, who was engaged to Zane in the original universe, but now completely uninvolved with him.

Isn't It Ironic?
 Eureka / int_bf8a2be2
comment
Isn't It Ironic?: A whole episode based on the trope. Because of technobabble, people are living out the lyrics of songs they listened to that day. Vincent turns Cafe Diem into a dance club after listening to Pink's "Get The Party Started," Kevin keeps stealing Jack's Jeep and driving recklessly to help with the problem because he listened to the theme song from Cops, Zane burns down Jo's house after listening to the Talking Heads' Greatest Hits (incluing "Burning Down The House"), someone at GD lets all the experimental dogs loose ("Who Let The Dogs Out" by the Baha Men), someone orders 99 Red Balloons, and Henry builds a stasis field that threatens the whole town because he wanted to "Stop The World" (Modern English, "I Melt With You"). And Jo shoots at Carter when, after he spent most of the episode in regular clothes because it's his day off, she first sees him in his uniform, because she listened to Bob Marley's "I Shot The Sheriff." What sends it into this trope is that people are only doing the most literal and identifiable actions from the lyrics. At least two of the songs in question are about nuclear annhilation, and no one does anything towards that (thankfully).

Unwanted Rescue: At the end of season two, Carter, Stark, and Taggart work their way through to the morgue to stop a deadly flesh eating bacterium. When they get to the morgue they find a lot of staff members hiding from the plague, which they just unleashed into the morgue! Then it turns out that the morgue is where the plague started, which turns it into Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like. Then it turns out the plague was a hoax. Then they have to escape the building, which is on hardcore defense mode.

Feet of Clay: Several times, it'll turn out a supposed great person or top scientist is not what they appear to be. Jason Anderson is said to be an uber genius who comes up with many great theories and devices when he works with groups. It turns out that he's just stealing the work of other, truly talented scientists and using a device to wipe their memories so they don't even know they're complimenting him on their own work. He also used it to make his wife forget she and Henry were a couple. Eventually, she finds out, naturally pissed and helps expose him. When Fargo's uncle, frozen in 1957, is thawed out, it turns out he's the true genius behind much of the work that helped put Eureka on the map and when he vanished, his partner claimed the research as his own.

Aesop Amnesia: While not a specifically-stated aesop, there is a lesson that Carter never seems to learn. No matter how many situations he could have gotten himself out of and saved the day much more easily by just carrying a pocket knife, let alone something like a Swiss Army knife, he never does. He's a former U.S. Marshal and a sheriff, and yet he doesn't carry a basic tool that many adult men do and he never thinks to. For the rest of the scientists (Allison and Henry being the most consistent offenders), they never quite learn to not just blow Jack off with "It's not scientifically possible." Lampshaded by Jack when a missile threatens the town in "Worst Case Scenario" and the similarity to the events of "Dr Nobel".

Cloudcuckoolander: Pretty much everyone in the entire town to some degree, but Taggart is easily the biggest. To give you an idea, in one episode Sheriff Carter finds him naked, about to attack a cell tower with an enormous circular saw, and doesn't consider this to be an indication that anything is out of the ordinary: that's just the sort of thing Taggart does. It's to the point that, in an episode where everyone in town is being driven insane by mutated pollen, Carter can't tell whether Taggart is being affected or not, because he already acts like that anyway.

Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: In "O Little Town," Taggart meets a man who is heavily implied to be Santa Claus. But keep in mind that it's a story that Jack is telling some kids. Though it should be noted that Taggart spent the episode trying to prove how Santa Claus was scientifically possible and even built several devices that replicated the Santa Claus folklore including a bag that could store possibly millions of presents. It would be better said to be a case of Maybe Magic, Maybe Brilliant (Mad?) Scientist.

Except then, Jack puts her back on the bus because the whole time travel thing has made their relationship awkward and he's convinced it won't work.

Cassandra Truth: Carter quickly gets a handle on how Eureka operates and learns not to dismiss things he sees and intuits as being too crazy to be the truth. Yet, despite having an excellent track record of pinning down problems, no one believes him at first. Even Henry and Allison take about three seasons to stop dismissing him as crazy when he asks something or says something strange is going on. Carter has his own version of this often. While it's true that the scientists will always say "It's not possible for my experiment to have done that!" regardless of whether it did or not, he never seems to be able to distinguish between "It's not possible my experiment did this because it's scientifically impossible for what I'm doing to cause that effect" (it's not their fault) and "It's not possible my experiment did this because I'm in complete control and nothing could ever possibly go wrong!" (it's almost certainly their fault). The second half of season four actually seems to be having some success mixing and matching both of these with only mild forms of the above bullet point.

In Spite of a Nail: The Alternate Timeline in the fourth season, despite removing a key figure in Eureka's founding altogether, has changed almost nothing. In fact, all the characters' lives actually seem to be better for it. There is the problem of Jo having never started a relationship with Zane in this timeline, but that's balanced out by her now being in charge of GD security. Henry lampshades one of the instances where it is changed, where Kevin no longer has autism, pointing that no one knows what causes autism in the first place, so it's impossible to figure out how that changed.

To say nothing of the Season 1 finale, which begins with everything peachy; Carter and Allison married, Jo and Taggart in a relationship, and Henry and Kim happy together. Then this all turns out to be an alternate timeline created when Henry prevented Kim's death, and Carter has to personally hit the Reset Button in order to save the universe. This doubles as Henry's Start of Darkness for his role as Season 2's Big Bad.

Reset Button: Zig-zagged. If Carter ever loses his job, or looks like he will, the button will be pressed. The show makes no attempt to disguise this, having literally titled one of their episodes "Welcome Back Carter" right after the one where Carter was fired. At other times, it's avoided when you wouldn't think so (Stark's death, for example, since he asked to be written out). Also used at the end of season one, which is utterly heartbreaking because it's one of the few times you don't want the button to be pushed. Surprisingly averted in the fourth season. Carter and friends accidentally create an Alternate Timeline, and the viewer is convinced the button will be pushed. Instead, events keep conspiring to prevent the button from being pushed, so this new timeline is here to stay.

comment
Writers Cannot Do Math: "Founder's Day" somehow has an 11-year solar flare cycle which is at its peak in both 1947 and 2010; "I'll Be Seeing You" implies that it probably also peaked in 1939. With a peak in 2010 and in 1947 a 10.5 years cycle would be accurate. But when explaning this to someone you'd just round off and say eleven years. "11 years" is common approximation, but the length of cycles is actually variable to a point. However, while there was actually a solar maximum in May 1947, there was not one in 2010 (the maximum of the current cycle is expected in 2013, and so far it looks like a weak cycle overall). And the maximum before 1947 was in 1937, not 1939.

Science Is Good
 Eureka / int_da48b2c6
comment
Science Is Good: Although science experiments go horribly wrong (or right) every week, it's (almost) always in service to the goal of pushing back the boundaries of humanity's knowledge of the universe. The science and technology may be firmly Hollywood Science, but there's an underlying respect for the idea of science — that is, a tool that we can use to better understand the world around us and how it works — that runs through the entirety of the series. There's occasional hand-wringing (and more than a few episode plots) that revolve around Eureka and Global Dynamics working on strictly military projects, but the argument is made that the pure research has to be funded somehow, and developing weapons for the military is a small price to pay for the wealth of knowledge Eureka produces. Even the idea of scientific knowledge being used to create better weapons isn't dismissed out of hand: America has enemies, and while Mutually Assured Destruction isn't the best answer to humanity's violent tendencies, it's at least an answer.

Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: Everyone in "The Ex-Files" are having hallucinations related to their various unresolved issues. Jo, finally having had enough of the past version of Zane haunting her, tells her hallucination that they never worked as a couple and gives back the engagement ring he gave her... only to realize too late that this is the real Zane she's confessed to. He's rather surprised she has his grandmother's ring.

It's shown later in the episode that if the women get their man, Death by Sex will occur.

Historical In-Joke: When Henry was explaining the device that brought them to '47, he referred to a theory worked on by Einstein and Dr. Grant regarding the connection of two points of space/time that Henry referred to as the "Einstein-Grant" bridge. Since Grant got jumped to 2010 by the end of the episode, that gives them call to refer to it as we all know it, the "Einstein-Rosen" bridge.

Expy: Nathan's actor is pretty candid about the fact that the character is more or less Tony Stark, sans armor. There's quite a bit of Jack O'Neill about Carter... again starting with the name. (Though he's a lot less bitter.) Fargo has a little bit of Peter Parker to him, even to the point of being the wisecracking nerd that it seems like the other superheroes... er, scientists barely tolerate. Bonus points for him following Stark around like a puppy during the period where Spider-Man was doing the same with Iron Man. Taggart is clearly inspired by Steve Irwin, an excitable Australian outdoorsman with an expertise in animal biology.

It looks like it's going to be one of these, since they have a memory retrieval device, but it's only used in the B plot to flesh out the back-stories of Fargo, Zane, and Lupo, by looking at their childhoods. For the A plot, almost no old footage is shown, they mostly talk about, and do things related to past events, because thanks to an accident with the aforementioned device Jack's memories are overriding their Relationship Supervisor's personality.

Also subverted in one episode where most of the population of Eureka gets converted into idiots, including Henry. Gathering everyone in Global Dynamics who hasn't been affected to solve the Crisis Of The Week results in a "chemist, a botanist, a math theorist, and a...lepipotamusnote lepidopterist" being tasked with repairing the particle shielding on an experiment that simulates the Big Bang before it goes off. Unsurprisingly, none of them has a clue about theoretical astrophysics or string theory. They do manage to solve the idiocy problem, though.

Clingy Jealous Girl: Zane and Allison in season 5, after having experienced a simulated reality set 4 years after they'd disappeared and where Matrix!Jo and Matrix!Carter had hooked up. The fact as scientists, seeing a highly accurate computer projection based on what might occur in those circumstances, doesn't alleviate their jealousy upon returning to reality. Particularly after a bodyswap mishap causes Carter to keep swapping during times where Zane is either in the shower with Jo or when Zane impulsively kisses her whilst in his body.

Mundane Utility: Even in the show's opening credits. Laser lawnmowers, antigravity baby carriages, virtual baseball, jetpacks used to fix broken streetlights, an enormous freezer (referred to as Narnia by Zoe) that can reach 0 Kelvin for food, etc. Slightly subverted in that almost none of these are actually seen in use in the series. Most people drive fairly normal cars, live in fairly normal houses, etc. They tend to just have nicer cell phones and sound systems and so on than in the outside world. Maybe because the DOD wants to keep the town a secret. No laser lawnmowers, but you can have a nuclear powered car. While those blatant examples aren't seen, there's still plenty of examples in the show.

Crazy Survivalist: Taggart again. Semi-subverted in that he's actually fairly friendly most of the time, and his Crazy Survivalist behavior is occasionally useful. Really, his first few episodes made him seem like a stock one of these that had somehow snuck into Eureka by mistake, but he quickly began showing traits of his intelligence, multiple doctorates, and even nerdiness. He's just weird because most Eureka scientists are weird about their specialty, and his is animal behavior/biology/Santaology.

Nothing Exciting Ever Happens Here: Inversion; the unusual is normal. The school science fair would probably be stunned by someone entering a baking soda volcano. These people annually race rockets around the moon! Sheriff Carter was floored when Andy told him that somebody robbed a bank. He was so used to the disaster of the week being a "quantum runaway something or other" which threatened to destroy the town that the thought of a simple bank robbery thrilled him to no end. Of course, it then turned out that the entire bank was supposedly stolen, building and all.

Product Placement
 Eureka / int_f511ea9b
comment
Product Placement: While slightly present since the start (All the video phones in Eureka apparently use Cisco Systems), became blatant and omnipresent in season 3. They at least attempt to justify it by throwing in a new boss who implements what causes it in an effort to make the research done in the town more profitable, but (as Real Life Comics nicely captures) it's still painful to watch. Especially given that... "Here Come The Suns" is pretty much one long ad for Degree, and in "If You Build It..." Jo, Fargo, and Fargo's Smart Car Tabitha (a LeBaron convertible) unabashedly extol the Subaru Impreza WRX.

Sitcom Archnemesis: Fargo seems to find a new one of these once every few episodes. Often they're the first victim of the disaster of the week. He also has longer-term nemeses Larry (until the universe-hop makes him into Fargo's personal assistant instead) and Doctor Isaac Parrish (who has lasted since the Astraeus mission Story Arc began, and has been The Rival to Fargo for most of their lives in the new universe).

Dude, Where's My Respect?
 Eureka / int_f818b637
comment
Dude, Where's My Respect?: Sheriff Carter gets no respect for the first 2 or three seasons, even when he's the one who ultimately saved the town from the problem of the week most episodes. Instead, they opt to point and laugh at him for not knowing that OLSN stands for Overly Long Scientific Name. Its only later on that they begin to take his ideas and opinions seriously. This is a plot point that boomerangs in season 3: In the premiere episode, its shown that there's actually been an increase in incidents since Carter took the position. In the mid-season finale, Mansfield fires Carter with one the reasons was that his always reacting to potential disasters as opposed to somehow preventing them in the first place. This despite the fact said disasters were often the result of an unforeseen chain of events, combination of experiments, or outright (bordering on criminal) negligence of the scientists inhabiting the town.

Someone Has to Die: Season three episode "I Do Over": It was Stark. Not to mention Kim in "Once in a Lifetime" to save the timeline. And Kim again, or at least Kim 2.0, in "Shower the People" to save the residents of Eureka from a bio-computer virus. Both times the resident Woobie Henry couldn't stop it.

Love Makes You Crazy
 Eureka / int_f96f8980
comment
Love Makes You Crazy: After his girlfriend dies in the Season 1 finale, Henry seems to get slightly more unhinged. Season 3 sees him getting better, though. Also, in the episode where Stark gets replicated, his jealousy over Carter and Allison makes the situation even worse, because the replicants can tell what he's feeling and act accordingly. And then there's the episode where Jo is the victim of a genetic switcharoo, simply so the culprit can get close to Fargo and exploit his crush on Jo to try to hook up with him.

Running Gag
 Eureka / int_f9f2c33
comment
Running Gag: A minor one that spans the entire series is Carter buying someone something as a gift, only for them to get one as a gift from someone else before he has a chance to present it. Alternatively, they present an even better, super-high-tech version of his gift. The gag reaches its crescendo during Alison's baby shower, where Jack removes one item after another from his gift basket as someone else presents it to Alison, until finally: "and my gift to you is...a basket!" Jack's Jeep keeps getting destroyed. How many vehicles can be smashed, blown up, sucked into tornadoes, protenated (read:melted), etc. before the budget gets maxed out? The only thing that gets trashed almost as much as Carter's Jeep? Cafe Diem. Fargo has a thing for Sarah Michelle Gellar. The writers like to slip in a lot of poop jokes. TIRD particles, the SCAT, the "Dump Coil," I could go on... It seems like half the cast will eventually end up living at Carter's house. Carter himself, Zoe, Allison (along with Kevin and Jenna), Jo, Sheriff Andy, Doug Fargo, Holly Marten... "Car Wash" by Rose Royce keeps showing up, mostly in embarrassing ways.

Artistic License – Physics In season 4's "liftoff", Allison says that a shuttle hitting eureka at the speed of light would leave a "mile deep crater". However, objects approach infinite mass the closer they get to lightspeed. An infinitely massive shuttle hitting the ground at about 300,000 Km/s would obliterate the planet, not make a big crater.

Brick Joke: The Einstein-Grant bridge. Also, the opening credits in every episode from the very first episode end with the buildings of Eureka floating up into the air, which finally happens in the fourth season episode "Up in the Air". Though it was mentioned in the first season finale (set in 2010) as an event that had happened in the past. Jack and Zoe drive past themselves while leaving the city in the season finale...very similar to how they drove past themselves in the series premiere, six years ago.

Innocently Insensitive: Lucas is bemoaning the fact that Zoe has gotten an early admission to Harvard Medical School to Henry. Henry is trying to talk him through it as they're preparing to go over data from the ship Henry and Kim had launched and which returned, with an android facsimile of Kim aboard, earlier in the season. Lucas bemoans that "All the data in the world can't take the place of the woman you love," which hits very close to home for Henry. Lucas immediately realizes his faux pas and starts apologizing.
