EUREKA “Clash of the Titans” Review

EUREKA "Clash of the Titans" Season 4 Episode 17 - As we near the end of EUREKA Season 4.5, things are starting to get serious in the preparations for the Titan mission. Still it’s nice to see that there’s love in the air, although there’s also dangerous level of methane gas. The high level of poisonous gasses in the atmosphere mimic those found on Titan, leading everyone to think it was caused when Tiny, the Titan Rover (remember him from earlier in Season 4?), exploded on its return from a prep mission to Titan. When the source of the gasses is found to be the ultra-realistic trainingsimulations for the Astraeus mission, Fargo and Holly risk highly combustible methane snow to saveEureka from being blown to Titan. Also in this episode, a relationship auditor from the Department of Defense comes to check out Carter and Allison, while Henry is a little uneasy about his upcoming nuptials with Grace.

Congratulations to the Eureka team for putting together a great episode, especially Paula Yoo and Eric Tuchman for the excellent writing. It would have been very easy for the main methane gas storyline to have overwhelmed the other events in the episode, which happens from time to time on Eureka. What works here is how Yoo and Tuchman worked in those secondary storylines so that they become organic to the main event. The result is a smooth flowing episodes with no scenes or moments that seem out of place. On top of this the dialogue was extremely hilarious between all the couples in the episode, especially Holly and Fargo. Read More...
