  • Possibly a TV first?

    While watching this hugely enjoyable episode I had an interesting thought.



    Much like Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura where the first interracial kiss ever shown on broadcast TV. Sherrif Carter and Dr. Blake might just be the first interclaycial kiss...



    Might be something worth researching... No? ;)

    Just when I was feeling the show's spark was fizzling a bit, this episode shows that there is some spark still left. This is not just one of my top ten episodes of the show but one of my favorate Christmas episodes in general.

    I'm a fan of animation and just seeing this show in animated form was a real treat. But I really love the different styles of anamation which were both part of the quirkyness of the sittuation but homage jokes.

    I really like how all the characters look different. From Tagart whom became a polar bear, Jo in a Snow White dress, Andy looking like C3PO, and my favorate was seeing Carter's Jeep come to life whose name is Carl. Carl is just funny reminds me a bit of Benny the Cab in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit".

    Even that moment when we see different animated versions of Carter, Andy, and Joe from Charlie Brown, Simpsons/Futurama, South Park, and Scooby Doo each version looked great and was comic gold.

    My favorate ones were seeing Eureka in claymation form obviously an homage to the Ralkin and Bass Christmas specials, even helped with the look of the characters from Fargo whom looks like he could be the elf Herbie or the jeep Carl whom could be one of the Chevron/Techron talking cars.

    And my absoute favorate was seeing the show in Anime form being a anime fan this was a dream come true and made me wish there would be a manga or anime movie/series of this show. But just seeing all the characters in that form was great,my favorate one was Jo whom as usual looks great. But I loved seeing the action and the expressions of the characters, from Fargo whom was using a power pole (a little homage to the manga/anime "Dragon Ball") against the gigantic ninja snowman. Down to seeing Carter drive an awsome version of the Jeep and beat the crap out of the Snow Ninjaalong with a little homage to "Knight Rider".

    But I also like how in this episode each of the characters were learning lessons like Andy learning being an outsider isn't a bad thing or even Jo not being afraid to be something more. Most of all the importance of togetherness which is what this adventure did for them but also Christmas.

  • I like Eureka it is quirky, funny and sci-fi. This christmas episode is one of the best I have seen in different series.

    Really clever with the cgi graphics changing the characters into animation of different genres. As it was a christmas special it was not continuing the story from the series before. But that was ok as a christmas special needs to be a stand alone episode. This really was a wonderful episode. shame that the series has been cancelled.
  • Outstanding Christmas episode! Maybe the best I ever seen! * spoilers *

    Wow that was amazing!

    All started with super photon generator error. Now everybody are cartoon characters! And cartoon is changing - first there was 3D Sims-like, then 2D cartoon, then clay cartoon and in the end anime!

    There were some allusion characters. It was really funny to see Jo as Snow White, Taggart as a bear. Fargo anime character is awesome!

    Sninja is the best Christmas villam I've ever seen! I really want to have the book that caused that!moreless
  • Brilliant Christmas special. Why are they cancelling? Stupid networks.

    The ep just had it all I loved it. Laughed so much! Don't understand why they are cancelling but I guess it is not a reality show is it! As you may have seen from a promo they characters go into cartoon world. Hilarious and has some fine moments for Jo. Missing Zane though. Just watch and enjoy the ride.

    • S.A.R.A.H.: And with everyone together, it was a perfect Christmas in Eureka. Now, I know some of you may wonder if this animated tale is true. You can believe it or not, but you did hear it from a talking house. So I'd say anything is possible.

    • Allison: Sorry if we ruined your Christmas.
      Dr. Drummer: No, added some excitement is all. You really love this time of year, don't you?
      Allison: Maybe a little too much.
      Dr. Drummer: I know what you mean. Sometimes I get so preoccupied making sure everything's perfect, I forget the best part of the holidays is having the people we love together in one place.
      Allison: I think I'm guilty of that, too.

    • Allison: Jack, they opened Jenna's present. That's what's interacting with the generator.
      Carter: So this is your fault? (cheery) Awesome.

    • Carter: We still on schedule?
      Andy: Yes, sirree, all systems go for Operation Ho, Ho, Ho. That's our code name for the big Christmas-morning surprise.
      Carter: Ingenious.
