Guys this is amazing!
Scifi channel has just released a free to watch web-episodes of a new show called "Eureka". Here's the setting for the story:
Sounds very interesting, and it's cool that Scifi is showing episodes on the web. So far there's only 2 episodes including a 2 hour pilot. The videos are viewable in fullscreen too. Another cool thing is that character interviews and documentaries are also available. Future of "TV" guys?
As World War II came to a close with mushroom clouds over Hiroshima and
Nagasaki, the impact that science and technology would have on the
continued security of our world became catastrophically apparent.
America nearly lost the race to build the atomic bomb; it could not
risk such a close call again.
With the help of Albert Einstein and other trusted advisors, President
Harry S. Truman commissioned a top-secret residential development in a
remote area of the Pacific Northwest, one that would serve to protect
and nurture America's most valuable intellectual resources. There our
nation's greatest thinkers, the über-geniuses working on the next era
of scientific achievement, would be able to live and work in a
supportive environment. The best architects and planners were
commissioned to design a welcoming place for these superlative geniuses
to reside, an area that would offer the best education for their
children, the best healthcare, the best amenities and quality of life.
A community was created to rival the most idyllic of America's small
towns — with one major difference: this town would never appear on any
maps. At least, none that haven't been classified "eyes only" by the
Thus, the town of Eureka was born. But for all its familiar, small-town
trappings, things in this secret hamlet are anything but ordinary. The
stereotype of the absent-minded professor exists for a reason, and most
of the quantum leaps in science and technology during the past 50 years
were produced by Eureka's elite researchers. Unfortunately, scientific
exploration is rarely what one expects, and years of experiments gone
awry have yielded some peculiar by-products.
From unrequited love to professional jealousy, from addiction to
depression, the problems of Eureka's townsfolk stem from life's myriad
of everyday challenges. But with the population's unique talents,
troubled psyches and limitless resources, these small-town concerns
have a way of becoming big-time problems. It is at that intersection,
where human frailty and super-science collide, that Eureka begins….
