Nestled in the Pacific Northwest, Eureka is a seemingly ordinary place whose residents lead ordinary lives at least to the naked eye. Shrouded in secrecy, the picturesque town is actually a community of scientific geniuses secretly relocated by the government to conduct top-secret research. This hit series smartly roots itself in reality, as the drama of the townsfolk stems from life's myriad of everyday challenges. But with the population's unique talents, troubled psyches and limitless resources, these small-town concerns have a way of becoming big-time problems. It is at that intersection, where human frailty and super-science collide, that Eureka begins.
