"Everything You Know Is Wrong! Again!"

How important is knowing what you're going to get when you watch to a television series? We've gotten so used to shows being either long-form arcs with "mythology-based" episodes or self-contained procedurals with little-to-no episode-to-episode continuity that it feels like a strange question to ask, but nonetheless: How much is continuity - and consistency - central to our entertainment and enjoyment?

5 Eureka Episodes To Get You Hooked Before The End

So, an early goodbye, then, to Syfy's Eureka.

It's a bittersweet moment because, although the show got five years and some warning about its demise - A happier fate than, say Stargate Universe or Caprica - it's a show that I'll readily admit to watching, enjoying and kind of feeling like it's the televisual equivalent of comfort food, and one that I'll definitely miss. For those who've never seen the show, here are five episodes you should sample to see if it's something you should fall in (mild) love with.
