A Small Criticism

Is it just me who thinks that Jack is the only male in that series? This show seems to be completely run by women! So much for gender equality in the work place, right?

I think it is syfy's way of connecting to female viewers by having a show that has a more fair amount of female roles.
More women is a good thing! No complaining lol ! :P

Well, let's look at the current regulars, shall we?

Women:
Allison- Head of Global Dynamics/Genius
Jo- No-nonsense Deputy
Zoe - Carter's daughter w/high IQ/Sometimes Annoying
S.A.R.A.H. - Carter's Smart House w/Female voice/Funny
Tess - Current Section 5 lead/Genius/Annoying Plot Point

Men:

Carter- Eureka Sheriff/Awesome
Henry- Scientific Genius/Mayor/Everybody likes him(He was, also, head of GD in the alternate timeline story)
Fargo- Genius/Screwup
Zane- Genius/Boring
Vincent- Genius/Owner of Cafe Diem
So counting SARAH, it's an even match-up. Carter is the main character, so he is seen more than anyone else, but I think the writers do a good job of not making it all about him, but rather, more of an ensemble show. Good point travellerjohn...lol

i love how zoe's boyfriend doesn't warrant a mention. there's also nate, who i still maintain isn't dead, merely suspended in time. there's also thorne and beverly, neither one of them is dead and both were on long enough to make the list. oh, and carters sister obviously hung around for nine months.

Excluding ep 3x17, I think that on average you mostly Carter with a cohort which include:- meeting Allison at the incident site- Jo Lupo accompanying him- dropping off Zoe somewhere or meeting her at the Cafe
After that, Fargo and Henry are the only guys who get some air-time. Zane pops off to say a line or two. Vincent is nearly always there when Zoe is in the foreground.
And why do the guys (apart from Henry and Zane) play inferior roles and are the stupid ones?
You guys remember the "alien" spacecraft that landed, who came out of it: Kim. And I went "oh no, wasn't her contract over yet? is Henry that bored that they made Kim come back?..." I think it'd be more appropriate to make the ex-boss of GD, Nathan Stark come out of the spaceship. Maybe he figured out a way to come back from the parallel universe he disappeared into.
NGrady666 is right. I completely forgot Carter's hippy sister. She was in the foreground (i.e. airtime) for quite a lot.
thetravellerjohn21, am not sure whether more women is a good thing. U way want to look into a girlfriend to fix that but as for me, i usually stay away from oestrogen-filled man-hater series like "Desperate Housewives" or "Sex in the City" There's so much rambling I can take.
The new Eureka episodes has turned out to be quite dull these days. Am not even eager to know what's gonna happen (but i keep watching just in case).

Considering that Jack is usually the one that "saves the day"... I'd say he gets a fair amount of screen time, lol.
I agree with starry118 -- it's pretty evenly matched up! :)

Jack is in a town full of genius women that are helpless 90% of the time and Jack comes up with most of the answers and they explain to him what he just figured out. He then does what no one else can do and saves the day by doing things no normal man WOULD do.

Good point roboticeye...and funny: )
I'm just reading the rest of the convo here, but if we're talking about all the characters that have ever been on the show, and not just the usual folk, we should also include the mixed bag of male and female scientists who have guest starred on the show.
In general, the geniuses (male and female) are the ones who overlook the obvious, usually making catastrophic errors, and plain, "Average Joe (or Jack : )" Carter comes in, scratches his head, and with a clueless look on his face, comes up w/the answer and ends up saving the day...if anyone is outnumbered on Eureka, it would be Carter (representing regular folk) against the town of geniuses who regularly smirk or make comments about his cluelessness...he may be outmatched, but as we see at the end of every episode, certainly not outwitted...
In short, it's not a gender-thing...it's a Genius-thang bay-bay :D

I don't know what the male/female ratio is in US universities, but in the UK i've seen rows and rows of guys in science, engineering and computing. Biology was quite popular with the girls. Eureka is quite an oddity!
There used to be a balance in the series back when Stark was head of GD, then ever since Allison took that role, this has shifted. And my point is that in every couple of shots, Carter is the only guy (i.e. he seems to be predominantly surrounded by females - the one who caused the incident; head of GD (Allison); new head of GD (Tess); sherif-assistant (Lupo); his daughter; his pregnant sister ...and in the past: Kim, Beverly Barlowe) ...the male roles are mainly pop-ups, few minutes of dialogue.
But am fed up of this thread now, i was just wondering whether it was some feminist coup, lol. But according to some of you, the balance seems fair. Am not entering the regular-joe vs. genius debate, the show is called Eureka for good reason, so it'd be pointless to discuss that.

Wow Natasha26 I hadnt read this discussion since I put down my first post but on your comment that "thetravellerjohn21, am not sure whether more women is a good thing. U way want to look into a girlfriend to fix that but as for me, i usually stay away from oestrogen-filled man-hater series like "Desperate Housewives" or "Sex in the City" There's so much rambling I can take."
I hold resentment to that statement, personally I would rather watch WOMEN on TV then men especially when they are intelligent and attractive women (ie the two characteristics that turn me on most). And as per your girlfriend comment I go out on the weekend BY MYSELF TO CLUBS, which are the hardest places to successfully speak to women and WITH NO WINGMAN and still I speak, flirt, dance/grind, all while getting the numbers of more than enough women even when they are with their friends.
I was actually getting dressed while I was watching the Eureka season finale last night
Did I get digits last night?....YES
and am I going out tonight again?...YES
Do I thank God everyday that I'm cute?...YES
Can I be stopped?...NO
The look on Natasha26's face when she reads this?....PRICELESS :P

But as a side thought, what u wrote in that post are simply unverifiable facts. I mean it's the internet... So i'll just read ur post as off-topic bragging. :)

I don't really think the ratio is that disparaging, but how is more women portrayed successfully undertaking roles that are generally male-dominated in our society even remotely bad? I'd say "go, SyFy" for not being afraid to continue promoting a show that knocks down gender norms week after week.

starry118 u believed what he wrote? how can you be so stupid, i mean gullible?? Seriously, let me repeat that: " how can you be so stupid, i mean gullible??"
hero_47, maybe it's good to indulge in that kind of false reality! Maybe the lack of females in your life forces you to watch shows where you get to check out chicks. But what appeals to you doesn't appeal to me. I don't have a c*ck i.e. something that seems to do most of your thinking.
I think it will be really cool one day when you lose your job or promotion because gender quotas have been enforced. I have many male friends who went through that. Then I give you a few days before you realise that "merit" is a better factor to judge people... Then you could go to producers of shows like Eureka and say "thanks for being part of this machinery which enforces false stereotype." Get it or do you need a few more years of living before you understand where am coming from? Or maybe you live your life through television, then am afraid that you are seriously hopeless.

Natasha26, I'm not surprised that you didn't get the point...whether what he said is true or not, it was funny, which is why I laughed when reading it, and then posted that I did...
Hero_47, you're right. The ratio is not at all disparaging, b/c there are not more women on the show now than there are men, and I don't think there ever have been. Equality is a good thing- in roles and representation- and people who cannot appreciate that need to wake up and join the 21st century...
Hmm, what an interesting creature...a female "male chauvinist"...: |

No no starry118, u can't back out now. What u wrote after thetravellerjohn21, clearly indicates that you liked and therefore agreed with what he said, so you are gullible... I took the sensible approach of telling him that those were unverifiable facts.
"male chauvinist" ??? Put some reading glasses or some drops in your eyes. I am 100% pro "merit" It is the best practice for selection. Those who can't make it will die trying, but unfortunately "gender quotas" are being imposed and at the detriment of bright individuals. Still "male chauvinist"?? You want to tell those people (guys and girls) who spend ages getting good at something that their chances of getting in will be ZERO because of some stupid gender quota.
My problem with Eureka episodes (except for the last two) is that it's not even about respecting quotas/equality anymore. The producers have been flogging babbling women in the front of what is supposed to be an advanced scientific community.
Oh dear, this thread feels like i'm dealing with kids. No wonder, Eureka is one of the shallowest series i've watched (but with the hope that it'd get better).

Backing out of what exactly? I laughed at what was said b/c it was funny...I liked the fact that it was a humorous response to the idiocy you've been spewing in this thread...
Ultimately, only one person is going to acquire a position offered. Unfortunately, many hiring managers have biases which don't necessarily favor intelligence and aptitude, hence, the need for regulation...but I'm not going to get into a debate w/you about quotas. Everyone has their opinion and is entitled to them...so rock on...
Pro merit...your comments don't give that impression. If that were the case, why do you have a problem with a woman being the head of GD? Regarding the gender-representation of that role, there have been three women: Allison, Eva Thorne, and Tess vs. three men: Warren King, Nathan Stark, and Henry Deacon. There has also been about an equal representation of men and women on the show, overall. Your comments seem to indicate you would prefer men in leadership roles on the show, and assume that women were only placed in those positions as the result of quotas and not b/c they were legitimately qualified (although the dialogue on the show has made it clear that the "genius" quality on this show is not gender-specific)...hence, my use of the term male-chauvinist...
The problem with Eureka, this season, has nothing at all to do with gender-preference, but rather, the quality of the writing...it has been a "filler" season with no overarching plot, and nothing really intriguing taking place...hopefully, the writers will get it together by next year. Despite that, I've enjoyed Eureka overall...it is a light, sci-fi comedy...if you were looking for something educational, or of any real depth, then you're looking at the wrong show...

starry118: You are gullible, thetravellerjohn21 wrote something and you were like "am here with you!" Yeah what he wrote looks funny, what is it? A rip off of the mastercard advert, very original. What's next "Wazaa" ? Stick to ur horse, there's a connection between finding something funny and you believing that it is true. Don't know about it? Next time u watch a stand-up comedy show, ask yourself "why did i find that line funny."
do you have some memory related problem? When was I EVER against Allison being head of GD?? I only said that the show seemed more balanced (in m/f representation) when Nathan Stark was head of GD. I think you have to read correctly otherwise you make it easier for me to skip an entire paragraph.
Eureka has had major funding issues which is why there was a masive gap between 3x08 and 3x09. Actually a sidereel'er "DosSin" told me 3x09 was going to be 4x01... Eureka has lost major audience shares over the series, am not sure how they'll reverse the situation. But yeah it's been a bit of a "filler" season: two pregnancies, Kim and Tess!

Many comedy situations presented in tv shows, movies, and some comedy acts are very far-fetched, and it is highly unlikely that they would ever occur, yet they still evoke laughter...to break that down for you: you don't have to believe something to find the humor in it.
Regarding your apparent issue w/male-female roles, you said:
"And why do the guys (apart from Henry and Zane) play inferior roles and are the stupid ones?"
This indicates you are just referring to the "roles" of the current cast (since that is what you stated). As pointed out previously, everyone there is a genius, w/the exception of Carter & Jo. Carter is not a genius scientist, or head of GD, but he is the town sheriff, which is a position of authority and not at all inferior...also, he regularly "saves the day," so that doesn't indicate inferiority either. Henry and Zane would bring the count to three, so that only leaves Vincent, Fargo & Zoe's bf. Vincent is a genius and entrepreneur, so that's not inferior...Fargo is a genius scientist, so his role is not inferior, and Zoe's bf is a student (just as she is), so that role's not inferior either. That brings the count to six men, and four women (since S.A.R.A.H. is voiced by Fargo), which means there was no inequality of m-f roles or representation on the show.
You also said: "There used to be a balance in the series back when Stark was head of GD, then ever since Allison took that role, this has shifted."
Again, the use of the word "role"...Stark was still on the show for awhile after Allison became head of GD, so your comment doesn't indicate your, merely, having an issue a problem w/male-female representation on the show, but rather one of m-f roles. Then again, perhaps you didn't think your argument through before posting any of your comments...
The more you talk, though, the more I realize that I've been talking to a child here, or at least, someone with a very childish mindset. During the course of this discussion, you've attacked several posters b/c they did not share you view. There's no reasoning w/you & I think I've entertained your babbling long enough, so I will bid you adieu. You may continue with your insane ranting if you wish... : )

I already threw the 'childish' thing at you, so u throw it back at me. Well done she-monkey!
The main theme is the first post (the one at the head of the thread). Anything that comes up after that can be classified as a sub-topic. One could elaborate on sub-topics but it wouldn't be answering the main question, which is about the absence of guys in this show, or guys not being given as much airtime as their female counter parts or if you want: why do the producers keep flogging so many babbling women (main characters/guests) in the front like that?
Why would you drill down on the word "role" like that?? Ok well let me rewrite that down for ya: When Allison became head of GD, the balance of m/f has shifted to more females getting airtime. Is that so hard to put into your thick skull?
It seems that you're stuck in a Eureka of the past, where it used to be balanced (in m/f terms). You keep forgetting Carter's sister who hogged a lot of episodes. What about Kim's come back? Why did Allison bring in a female friend (Tess)? You keep overlooking those facts and mix things from different timelines, I think you're confused in your mind and shouldn't participate in this thread. If I could kick you off, I would and purely because you're messy.
I came up with one explanation though. Since the show was losing viewers, the producers thought of bringing in more women, because then the show would sell better. It'd appeal to more (lonely & single) guys/male-teenagers. That's my only explanation.

Lol...wow, every comment you post makes your childishness, and ignorance, more apparent. I know you're delusional, so I'll just go ahead and tell you: you don't have a copyright on the word "child" or any version of it...I will admit, you are the first to use it in this thread, and you are also, the one has illustrated what it is throughout this discussion, so kudos to you. : )
Yeah, I was slightly curious as to how big a fool you actually were, so I ventured back over here (ok, I was bored).... You've shown that my assessment of you is, in fact, correct and that you seriously need to grow up/take your meds...or both...just do whatever it takes to turn the lights back on up there.
Well, I guess the fact that your argument has been dismantled many times over in this thread (since it was weak and inaccurate to begin with) got you riled up and you felt the need to attack...I guess you got defensive since pretty much no one who posted in your thread agreed with you...that's tough... : (
It's ok if you call me monkey or anything else that your underdeveloped brain and stunted emotional growth inspire you to say...the fact that you're doing so just makes it clear that you have issues...I truly hope you get them worked out. : )

You came back for more, goody! I guess in all fairness, you're just trying to get the final say, like a little child who got the door slammed on her face. But in reality I've shown you several times what a sorry loser you really are. You coming back won't change that fact.
I already told you that I can't deal with your mixed up ideas and I don't think you've seen any of the recent Eureka episodes. And to repeat myself: "you are writing about a Eureka of the past," and shouldn't really be posting here. This is for the true fans.
It's quite petty that you're now dredging this thread for facts to put against me. It really is. You had plenty of time to do that before and even said your "adieu." How pathetic.
I think the truth is that you kept going to the Wiki to pull your old stats. And someone in this thread "NGrady666" already told you that there are more recent female characters that you've overlooked. As for the others, I told them to get a girl-friend and they didn't get back to me. Well just one, "thetravellerjohn21", with his mastercard rip-off and you believed what he wrote. He's a cool dude though, even sent me a couple of messages afterwards.
It's funny how you mention things like issues, being delusional or taking meds... is that something that you are suffering from and need medication? It's just not logical to assume that everyone has the same problem... something you should know, i.e. if u were a grown up, maybe not. It's also funny that you said already your "adieu" but still came back... that says so much about you!!
Me criticising you as being a "monkey" was another way for me to ask you to be a bit original. If it's not too hard, try to come up with your own material.

Sigh...I'm not dredging up this thread...I never subscribed to it, b/c I didn't want your craziness cluttering up my inbox...if you notice, I posted my second response awhile after the first, b/c coming back to read this thread wasn't on my list of priorities (and it still isn't, but I've been a lil' bored today). And perhaps, in the haze and fogginess that is supposed to be thinking, in your brain, you don't recall that you've continued posting after indicating, several times, that you were going to stop...it's called changing your mind and exercising your freedom of speech, which is an ok thing to do.
LOL...you must not be a regular to this page. I have started multiple threads, and conversed with others on theirs, throughout season 3.5...I have also seen every epi of Eureka that has been aired...many of them several times...I guess you don't care about the accuracy of what you're saying...just spouting out random things in an attempt to be heard (which is, btw, something that children and crazy people often do : )
In what way have you "slammed the door in my face?" And I didn't have to come back here to post facts to dismantle your argument...I did that earlier on and didn't have to consult a wiki to do it (although, I wasn't posting that information "against you" but as a part of the discussion). Since I've watched so much of the show, my comments have been from my memory of what I've seen. Perhaps, you should have gone to wikipedia or the imdb, though, b/c then, you probably would have realized your initial premise had no basis in reality...oh, but I'm forgetting: you don't seem to care about accuracy much.
My original comment clearly indicated the words current regulars before the list of men and women on the show, or in other words, characters who have appeared in most/all of the epis this season. I didn't include Zoe's boyfriend in that list, b/c he hasn't really been a frequent character on the show (much like Larry). My listing in a later comment did include him, however, and also took into account that SARAH is Fargo's voice. The 1st listing made the male:female ratio even, but the second one indicates more men on the show than women...especially if you add Larry, so again, your initial argument/subject of this thread is faulty.
I've posted with most of the people in this thread on the Eureka page, and others on Sidereel, and I think they're all cool...it's a shame that you have shown yourself to be otherwise by acting like a complete azz in this thread (and not b/c of the initial subject of the thread, but rather, the way you've conducted yourself in it). Still, your referring to those two posters doesn't change the fact that, basically, no one indicated their agreement with what you were saying in this thread.
Natasha26, your calling me a monkey is childish...if you don't see that, then my observation that you are ignorant is pretty accurate.

Anyone who goes through that thread would say that it's only you and me who are discussing things. If am a fool then so are you, maybe you might wanna chill out on things that'll mirror on you. Unless you want to do the monkey and repeat/re-use what i've said.
I don't understand why you are so keen to come back when I already told you that you're mixing things from the past to make your arguments appear sound. They are not. Your list is pointless unless you add a column to indicate how much airtime each character got in season 3. My argument that Carter seems to be the only male getting airtime through season 3 still stands. As for the rest of the crew, it's been mostly the females (old & new) who were given an unequal share of airtime. And the rest of my criticisms or sub-topics can be read from my previous posts.
The fact that you consistently overlook my facts (which are from season 3) only shows how afraid you are to tread on that territory. And am sure if you did, then you'd realise that your arguments (if you can call them that) will fail.
To sum up, here're the facts that you've been overlooking to make yourself and your list look good:- Carter's sister (~first half of season 3: from her hippy stuff that drove away the insects, her bf coming back, and her pregnancy)- Eva Thorne (~3 episodes: Old lady who was at Eureka in the old days... got Carter kicked out... was looking for the doomsday device)- Kim's come back (~3 episodes: Created in that GD spaceship and came back to earth then dissolved in that acid bath to extract information from her hard-drive body tissues)- Tess (~6-8 episodes: Apparently one of Allison's old friends coz Allison never made many guy friends in her past. Tess not only continously undermined Carter but was promoted to temp. head of GD by Allison (what are good friends for?))
You should consider subscribing to the thread, because then you'd find out what a demented person "starry118" really is. The following indicates the frequency of your edits/deletions:
starry118 commented on... @ 01:04starry118 commented on... @ 01:20starry118 commented on... @ 01:31starry118 commented on... @ 01:36
(am in the UK, so i have no idea whether that time is GMT or what, that's irrelevant. Just check the number of edits and the time between them)
This ain't a one off pattern though. Several of your previous posts were like that. So when you spoke of issues or meds, you were refering to yourself, right? I type my stuff in one go and without much effort. I saw all the episodes so am not inventing stuff...

I didn't say you were a fool b/c of your choice to continue posting in this thread...I did say that "it's called changing your mind and exercising your freedom of speech, which is an ok thing to do." Nothing I've said has mirrored your skewed point of view or unsubstantiated claims...I used the words "child/childish," and as we both know, you did not create those words and do not have ownership of them, or any other word in the dictionary, for that matter.
Sigh...the information I've posted is the truth, and the fact that you don't/won't understand that doesn't surprise me (maybe you have not actually been watching all the episodes, or maybe you're watching a different version of the show than everyone else)...but you've gotta stick to what you believe in right? Even in the face of all factual evidence contrary to it...
Umm...Tess is in my list. You might try reading something before commenting on it...oh, I keep forgetting that truth is of no consequence to you...you just want to make a point. Again, the list was of current regular cast members and not guest/recurring characters. Regular refers to characters who have appeared in many, or all, of the episodes and none of the other female characters in your list qualify as regular cast members for this season.
If you're going to include the female characters you named, we would have to include all the recurring/guest characters (including males) who have been on the show in seasons 3 (and 3.5)...some of those would be Larry, Taggart, Lexi's boyfriend, Andy the robotic sheriff, and that General guy that periodically acts as Eureka's/GD's watchdog, as well as a whole slew of other characters (male and female)...the point is they're not regulars, so they aren't the people typically seen on the show. Even if we did count them, though, it would still bring the male/female count to about even.
So, to relate the significance to your original subject-starter (as you don't seem to comprehend...I know the truth is probably a bit overwhelming for you):

"Is it just me who thinks that Jack is the only male in that series?"

Based on the postings here, that answer would be yes...but then, of all the people who watch the show, there's got to be someone else who doesn't see things as they really are, and thoroughly, agrees with you, but they didn't post here, so we can't really answer that question.

"This show seems to be completely run by women! So much for gender equality in the work place, right?"

Actually, based on the information presented in this thread by myself and other posters who watch the show, that does not "seem" to be the case. You can consult Wikipedia, Imdb, or the Syfy page to confirm this, if you'd like...maybe you'll believe information from the show and the network that runs it...
Lol...sure, I like to edit my comments to make sure I said what I wanted to say, the way I meant to say it...I do it in other posts and with my threads sometimes...unlike threads, though, you can't edit posts- you have to delete them...that doesn't make me, or anyone else who edits, demented. Stop trying to lump me into the same category w/your crazy tail. I just want you to get help...Just. Say. No. To Insanity Natasha26...I know you can do it :D

Ah you are finally seeing some sense in my claims. But unfortunately you fail yet again. None of the guys you mentioned hogged the show as much as those females I mentioned. So there!
Can you stop bringing other people (i.e. posts from other people) into our argument? Do you feel weak, do you need support from others to be able to voice your opinion? Wake up! It's only you and me in this boat. All other posts can be dismissed as shallow.
I do not know how popular Sidereel really is. Out of that crowd, there must be a small fraction who watch Eureka. Out of those, how many would actually bother reading posts? From this trickling down, you probably get a select few who have an opinion. So you telling me what you think (or including posts from others) doesn't make you right. It doesn't even form an overwhelming majority. It's really just you vs. me. So stop banging on that rallying-others train you moron.
You posting and re-posting only shows what a maniac you are. I don't know why you can't write your views in a single post?? But it's crazy: 22 minutes elapsed between your first and final post. I think you need help. To write something and keep changing it... this is mental. And it aint the first time.
The truth is that so far you have completely ignored the following:
- Carter's sister (~first half of season 3: from her hippy stuff that drove away the insects, her bf coming back, and her pregnancy)- Eva Thorne (~3 episodes: Old lady who was at Eureka in the old days... got Carter kicked out... was looking for the doomsday device)- Kim's come back (~3 episodes: Created in that GD spaceship and came back to earth then dissolved in that acid bath to extract information from her hard-drive body tissues)- Tess (~6-8 episodes: Apparently one of Allison's old friends coz Allison never made many guy friends in her past. Tess not only continously undermined Carter but was promoted to temp. head of GD by Allison (what are good friends for?))
Why is it now that you're thinking about the above? What kind of a fan are you? Isn't it obvious that whatever you wrote before the above was just good for flushing down the toilet? So what next? Do you want more time to factor the above and think of a come back?
U want another banana? :D

"Ah you are finally seeing some sense in my claims."

LOL...Ok, now I know you're just making up whatever suits you. Nothing I said indicated I found any of your claims the least bit sensible...lol :D
Haha...it's clear that what I've told you is the truth, but you don't wish to accept it...and that's ok, I understand the ego has to protect itself. The only thing weak is the premise of this discussion that you started...deal with it. Your arguments are weak, which is why you started launching personal attacks early on in the discussion, b/c your pea-brain couldn't think of anything better to say. What's crazy is that you actually counted up the minutes between my edits...I did say all I wanted to, I just don't like typos in my posts.
LOL...why do you keep saying I overlooked Tess when she was in my list to begin with? If you include Lexi, you'll also have to include Stark, b/c he was in almost half the epis this season. Bottom line: the men:women ratio is still about equal. I'm not going to repeat myself about the others you posted in that list...if you really want to know who I did/did not include and why, then actually read what I said.
Based on your original subject question, it seems you opened the discussion for feedback from others, wondering if someone agreed with you. I mentioned the six other posters in others in this thread, b/c you and I were not the only ones who posted in this discussion, and the overwhelming response was not in favor of your opinion...so as I said before, while this doesn't answer your question of "Is it just me who thinks that Jack is the only male in that series?", it is a sampling of what other viewers think. So the other posters' comments are "shallow" eh? Well, that doesn't surprise me...you are quite narcissistic.
Lol...I didn't say that what the other posters said made what I posted right...I actually told you to reference the network site, and several others, to find out the truth for yourself...but again, you have made it abundantly clear that truth is not something you wish to be acquainted with.
Yawn...ok, I'm bored with you now. To sum everything up: You are wrong. You totally own that (being wrong) and that's cool...you be you. : )

Yeah, the other posts (not you & me) were "shallow" and you not recognising that just drops you even further down. The other posters just made a comment about what they thought, something along the lines of "I think ..." and didn't bother substantiating it. So if you feel that this is sort of solid evidence that will unsettle my arguments, then you are greatly mistaken. This only shows how terrible you are at conducting research & answering a question.
Furthermore, I keep drilling into your thick brain that you are stuck in a Eureka of the past (i.e. when things were balanced). As soon as Allison became head of GD, Nathan took a background role. He was a side character and helped Carter much like Henry would. ...Then after the 4th episodes of season 3, he disappeared in that parallel universe.
So the bad fan that you are missed a whole chunk of Eureka season 3? Is that what it is? You came back during the Tess times and forgot the middle? Nathan's involvement was already fading at the beginning of Season 3 and when he left, the flocking-in began: Lexi, Thorne, Kim and Tess. You can read what I re-pasted. This was meant to hint you but you're still way behind. The fact that you are re-re-re-overlooking those, only shows that you've found yourself in the wrong and will just type about anything to make yourself believe that you're right. So pathetic. All you are doing is substantiating your wrong "feelings" that "season 3 was balanced" by bringing things from the past and just write loads and loads of BS! It's good to forget things and write about what you "feel" instead of what really happened, in which case gtfo.

@Foozlesnorf Well unlike you, some of us do care about what we watch, comparing gems like Fringe to a go-downhill-into-ridicule series like Eureka and from time to time you'll get explosions of opposite opinions. I can't see any in yours, are you just some retarded junkie who watches blindly and has no idea or opinion whatsoever? In that case, it'd be best u keep stuffing your gob with popcorn.
