Slice of SciFi takes on Television and unravels the mystery behind your viewing habits by asking the one simple question the Lame Stream Media is AFRAID to ask!!!
What are you watching?
Brian and Sam talk to series creator Jaime Paglia, stars Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield and Debrah Farentino at the recent Phoenix Comicon. They’ll talk about what we’ve seen so far in season five as well as their thoughts on the beginning of the end of one of our favorite shows. If you’re not caught up through last week’s episode, “Worst Cast Scenario,” we’ll warn you that there are SPOILERS!
On today’s show, we talk to Salli Richardson-Whitfield. You probably know her best from her role as Dr. Allison Blake on SyFy’s Eureka. Salli is also a guest at the upcoming Phoenix Comicon, so if you’re in the area why don’t you stop by and say hello! And you can also catch some of the Slice crew there as well.
I missed a couple of weeks of Eureka and ended up mainlining three weeks worth of Eureka. This has both its pluses and minuses. Plus, because it’s three weeks of Eureka and you don’t have to wait a week to see what happens next. Minuses, because you have three weeks of the show you’re invested in and realize that, dang, you have to wait another week to see what happens next.
When SyFy (back then Sci Fi channel) started this quirky series five years ago called Eureka, I tuned in thinking it was odd enough for me to watch. And I really don’t think I had anything else to watch at that time…well, other than Smallville. I was introduced to Jack Carter: U.S. Marshall who ended up taking over a Sheriff of this odd little town that looked like a piece of small town Americana. The look on his face when Global Dynamics is first introduced to him is what hooked me onto this show. Sheriff Jack Carter was the everyman and we were watching this crazy little town of geniuses through his eyes.
If you tuned into episode 364, you heard the first ten minutes of our Eureka roundtable with Colin Ferguson, Jamie Paglia and Bruce Miller.
Here is the rest of our conversation with the creative team behind one of our favorite shows. They’ll talk about what’s coming up in the season finale and what is ahead for season five.
This week, we’ve got a treat for Eureka fans (and if you’re not, you should be one!). We’ve got a roundtable with Colin Ferguson, who plays Jack Carter, and producers Jamie Paglia and Bruce Miller. If you like what you hear in this sample, head on over to the Slice of SciFi web site for a longer interview and roundtable discussion about the rest of season four, some hints about season five and some thoughts on the end of Eureka.
