Third-episode verdict: Eureka

By a piece of extraordinary timing, this third-episode verdict arrives just as episode one of Eureka arrives in the UK. Now re-titled A Town Called Eureka for British audiences, it’s airing at 9pm on Sky One. Is it worth adding your diary?

Probably not.

It’s amiable enough. The characters are amiable. The plots are neither too rubbish nor too interesting. As I mentioned in my review of the pilot, it’s basically just an acceptable hour-long filler.

If you’re a real hardcore sci-fi fan, you’ll probably tune in every episode. Otherwise, give it a miss unless you’ve nothing better to do.
