Despite this, the writers and producers were able to end the show the way it began and 'Eureka' came full circle. We even got a trip down memory lane, 'Eureka' style. We also got to see some old familiar faces, including Baltar himself (aka Dr. Trevor Grant) played by the wonderful James Callis.
The plucky upbeat show ended the way it should, happily. However, those six additional episodes could have tied up loose ends. 'Eureka' cast member Niall Matter (Zane) summed it up nicely.
"There’s just not enough time to button everything up. They’re going to work really hard to tie things up, but I read the episode and it’s not how I would want to end this series, that’s for sure."Rightfully so, the writers threw in a few pot shots at SyFy for cancelling their flagship series prematurely. One could assume SyFy cancelled 'Eureka' to make room for more paranormal reality television and wrestling. And that's just what scifi fans really want, MORE WRESTLING!
'Eureka' was a great show and will be greatly missed by its fans. If you haven't seen it, 'Eureka' can be seen online via Netflix. A fond farewell to Eureka's cast, writers, and producers! Thankfully SyFy hasn't cancelled 'Warehouse 13,' which is their last bit of decent programming.
