  • Carter learns about "the signal" while in an alternate dimension.

    First off, we don't need to see someone raising and lowering their blouse to advertise that they are pregnant. Lexi does this at least three times.

    In this episode, lots of things fly around. Cups, dishes, paper, the Cafe Diem cappuccino machine, cars, etc. You get the idea. Carter meets a mildly humorous woman from SETI and they spend a good chunk of the episode invisible together so, naturally, they get a "thing" going. Innuendo unnecessarily abounds in this episode.

    What is most interesting about this episode is the end scene where Carter puts the pieces together of what is going on at Global. He figures out "the signal" has something to do with what is going on in Section 5. He doesn't fully understand but he is already onto the secret.

    Eureka desperately needs a real enemy to continue to be a viable show. Here is what I want to see: Humans + Carter doing dumb stuff + Robocop Andy (who was awesome, BTW) + Eureka gadgetry. Then pit that combination against the Borg. Awesome. The multidimensional platform from this episode could be a way to send a SG1-like team (Stargate-esque) into a Borg cube ship. They would be a ragtag group of nerds against an intergalactic enemy they would have to discover the strengths and weaknesses of. In the process, they would become real men and women instead of bickering, arguing scientists. I'm getting excited already!
