I am looking forward to the beginning of the new season. Recently, TVaholic got a chance to tour the sets of Eureka. It was a great experience and some of the sets are truly amazing, in both detail and, in the case of the Global Dynamics set, size. Also, you may be interested in the Q&A session with the Eureka Cast, they really do have great chemistry, which I think shows on screen.
