If you're looking for sanity in Eureka, go no further than Colin Ferguson. Tuesday night, he begins his third season as Sheriff Jack Carter, who lends an Andy Taylor-like calm to a stormy Mayberry populated by crazy scientific geniuses. Ferguson explains why he's nuts about the show. ( Eureka airs Tuesdays at 9 pm/ET, Sci Fi.)
TV Guide: Give us some scoop!
Colin Ferguson: A main character dies! How do you like that? Also, as last season ended, Eureka was wrecked [by an airborne metal-eating bacteria], so we bring in Frances Fisher [as a corporate hotshot] to fix the town. [The opener] is about a [rogue robot] that escapes. It's fun, though it's hard to act when a main character is a visual effect.
TV Guide: What is the show's appeal?
Ferguson: Some like the special effects and the fun, fast stories. Others like the humor. I think it's the relationships.
TV Guide: Any other projects?
Ferguson: I did NBC's Fear Itself, which is like The Twilight Zone. I played a serial killer and that was fun. I like to exercise different muscles.
TV Guide: If you were a genius, what would you invent?
Ferguson: Wow! I love antigravity. I'm all about recreational vehicles that fly. Or maybe a car that runs on water - that would be good! - G J Donnelly
