Eureka is a small hidden town populated by America’s brightest scientists. They work cutting edge inventions and discoveries. Sadly for them, but funny for us, in their enthusiasm they tend to be forgetful about the safety surrounding their projects, which usually leads unnatural and hilarious chaos!
Sheriff Jack Carter and his daughter accidentally stumbles upon Eureka, and Jack ends up being hired as the new sheriff in town. He got more than he bargained for when he has to deal with all the quirky geniuses living in Eureka and their crazy experiments.
This is an absolutely hilarious show. Every episode have some new crazy accident to be taken care of. I was so sad when it was cancelled.
These two shows are very similar. They also exists in the same fictional universe and some of the character are part of a few crossover episodes between the shows. The main difference is that Eureka is science fiction focused while Warehouse 13 is more fantasy focused.
Walter Sherman is an Iraq war veteran who got a peculiar brain damage from an IED exploitation that makes him good at finding things by seeing seemingly unrelated connections between events. He uses this to find things for other people together with Leo Knox, US Deputy Marshal Isabel Zambada, and teen parolee and thief Willa Monday, who is serving her probation with the team.
A good show with a quirky character. To bad it ended after only one season.
Brought together to form one extraordinary team of “Alphas” – people whose unique brain anomalies imbue them with superhuman mental and physical abilities – five seemingly ordinary citizens must take the law into their own hands while working within the government to investigate a new brand of baffling crime. – Amazon
This is an excellent series, but I am not sure if I should recommend it. There is one thing that I hate with this series, and that one thing are the reason to why I will never buy this show. They cancelled it with a cliff hanger. That should be a criminal offence, an offence punished by no TV for the rest of their life.
Captain Jack Harkness, the former Time Agent and con man from the 51st century last seen traveling with the Doctor, ventures to early 21st century Cardiff. There, he becomes a member of Torchwood Institute, a renegade criminal investigation group founded by Queen Victoria to battle hostile extraterrestrial and supernatural threats.
Captain Malcolm ‘Mal’ Reynolds, a former galactic war veteran, is the captain of the transport ship Serenity. He is kind of like Han Solo from Star Wars, a small time smuggler hiding behind his legal transport services. His crew consists of Zoe, his old war buddy and Wash, the pilot and Jayne Cobb, the muscle and Kaylee Frye, the mechanic and Simon Tam, the medic and River, Simon`s sister and Inara Serra, a courtesan and Shepherd Book, a preacher.Together they do any jobs, legal or illegal.They travels across the outskirts of outer space sparking up trouble wherever they go.
This is a superb show. I can’t fathom why it got cancelled after only one season. I want a new show like this.
HARRY DRESDEN — WIZARD Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, Parties, or Other Entertainment.
Harry Dresden is a wizard from Chicago that works as a private investigator. He actually advertises in the Chicago yellow pages, with the ad written above. He also works as a consultant to the Chicago police with Detective Murphy on those cases considered bizarre.
I was at first a little put off because it differs from the stories told in the books, but after I come over that I started to really like it. The essence of the show is the same as the books, and you get a similar feeling. It is worth watching even if you have not read the books.
Astronaut John Crichton is on an experimental space mission to test a new spacecraft slingshoting around the globe. He is accidentally is accidentally sucked into a wormhole and emerged into the midst of an intergalactic conflict far out in the universe. He joins the crew on Moya ( a living sentient bio-mechanical space ship ) who picked him up after his unfortunate wormhole ride. He has to get to grips with living among alien creatures wielding deadly technology and being hunted by the Peacekeepers, a merciless military race.
This is a cool sciences fiction show, but not the best. I could for some reason not stomach the actor playing John Crichton. I had problems with him when he was on SG-1 also. This is probably just me, and many will likely disagree with me on this. If you have no problems with him, then this show might be pretty good, absolutely worth watching.
Eighteen year old Georgia “George” Lass is a college drop-out and without work. After getting work at a temp agency she gets royally screwed by a space station toilet falling from the sky and straight onto her head. After a brief period as a ghost she is returned to earth to work as a grim reaper. She works with a local team of grim reapers and have to help dead people to free their souls from their body right before they die. They look just like everyone else but as grim reapers they appear physically different to the living than they did when they were alive. Which means they also have to keep a day job to pay the bills.
Dead Like Me is a brilliant TV show with lots of quirky dark humor and witty dialogs. To bad it did not last longer.
Jaye Tyler is a twenty-something care-free loner living in Niagara Falls. Despite graduating college she has chosen to work as a retail clerk in a tourist gift shop in Niagara Falls called Wonderfalls. Her life takes a startling turn after a lion figurine begins talking to her. Despite fearing for her sanity, she decides to do exactly what the statues tells her to do and amazingly her actions begin changing people’s lives in unexpected ways.
Wonderfalls is an amazing show full of quirky humour. It might not be for everyone but it is a cult classic with weird and rememberable humour.
The Good Place is one of the places where those that have been good during their lives go after they are dead. Michael is the architect of this town and responsible for keeping everything going smoothly and that everyone receives the home of their dream and meet their soul mate on their arrival.. Eleanor finds herself as a new member of the town, but she realizes that there has been a terrible mix-up. She was never especially good during her life, and her new house in The Good Place is not to her taste.
The Good Place is a whimsical and funny show. I hope they don’t kill it to early like they do to so many shows of this nature.

Crimes that are part of a larger pattern. Dr. Walter Bishop`s knowledge of fringe science that he worked on before he got institutionalized comes in handy when the team face a rapidly spreading series of unexplained phenomena.
Fringe is a really good science fiction crime show. They get in to so many cool and crazy stuff while working on their cases, and they try to explain it in a scientific way, as much as it is possible.
Harry Dresden, a Chicago bound professional wizard, and the only one with an ad in the yellow pages. Business is sadly dreadful, so he jumps on it when the local police bring him in as a consultant on a strange double murder.
The Dresden Files is a must read for anyone with the slightest interest in this gangrene.

Hunter X Hunter, especially the newest version, is among the best animes I have watches. Absolutely worth giving a try.
