Question: I hope you'll mention the passing of one of my favorite shows, Eureka. With all the hoopla around the finale of The Closer and the buzz about new and returning summer shows, the final episode of this quirky and creative Syfy gem will probably go unnoticed by most. Over the years it's become one of my favorites, serving up some high concept sci-fi stories with a healthy dose of humor and heart. Although I knew it was ending, the announcement last week of the July 16 "series finale" made me sadder than I expected. It's like nothing else on TV and I will miss all these wonderful, eccentric characters and this charming, if sometimes dangerous, town. Thanks for your insightful columns and recommendations! — Lenore
Is this really happening? Eureka is back for its fifth and final season Monday (9/8c, Syfy) with a humdinger of an episode that has the starship Astraeus landing safely on Earth after its unplanned launch. But the crew members weren't in outer space for only a few hours like they thought — they were out there for four years! Naturally, the folks back home have moved on with their lives. Kids have grown up. New romances have blossomed. And sinister forces are now in charge of Global Dynamics. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Colin Ferguson — aka Sheriff Jack Carter — about these wild developments, the show's surprise demise, and what's in store for the series finale.
Looks like Syfy is ready to leave Eureka after all.

EUREKA (Friday, 9/8c, Syfy)
Fans of Colin Ferguson get double the pleasure this weekend. In a new episode of the quirky fan fave Eureka, directed by Joe Morton, there's more tension between Sheriff Carter and Dr. Grant on the Allison front. But things get really rocky elsewhere when townspeople begin turning into stone. (Hate when that happens!) On Saturday night, Ferguson switches occupations to heroic game warden as the hero of Lake Placid 3 (9/8c, Syfy), a campy sequel to the deadly-croc franchise co-starring genre faves Yancy Butler and Michael Ironside...
James Badge Dale
(Friday, 9/8c, Syfy) Colin Ferguson directs this week's episode, which may explain why Sheriff Carter is off to Harvard to visit Zoe for the week. While he's away, the town celebrates Space Week—but as usual, things go awry. This week's culprit: guest star Jamie Kennedy, whose self-propagating oxygen device begins to affect the atmosphere, threatening to incinerate the put-upon town...
"In this job, there's no such thing as no such thing."
That clever quip gives us summer Syfy in a nutshell. As spoken by Warehouse 13's glib Secret Service hero Pete Lattimer (the genial Eddie McClintock) to his foxy partner Mika Bering (Joanne Kelly) while both are plastered to a Victorian ceiling by some anti-gravity device or other, we are served the fantastic with a side order of whimsy, with very little ever taken seriously...

Sci Fi chose their upfront event to screen the much-anticipated finale of their hit series Battlestar Galactica, introduce new shows and formally reveal their new name, SyFy.
Here are some of the highlights of the evening:
The evening began with the screening of the two-hour Galactica finale, "Daybreak — Part 2." Executive producer Ron Moore made reporters and critics raise their right hands and promise not to reveal any spoilers until it airs on Friday (10 pm/ET). We will abide by this promise, but say the show's bow is stunning, action-packed and quite emotional.
Jason and Grant were good enough to name their "can't miss" episodes for TVGuide.com this season. They feature the creepy, old, abandoned Essex County Hospital and a Titanic exhibit with some reported spooky activity at the Georgia Aquarium. To raise the stakes — and the hairs on the back of your neck — the network is airing the Titanic episode on the anniversary of the ship's demise, April 15. We also couldn't resist asking if the boys minded being spoofed last year by Supernatural, and if they would be up for a cameo on the show. "We don't take ourselves seriously," said Grant. Jason echoed the sentiment, saying, "We'd love to... we think those guys are great and we'd love to meet them!" Read more about the Sci Fi upfronts after the jump!
