I would have written this introduction hours ago and had plenty of time to polish it, except – as usual – my wife and daughter insisted I drop everything and watch the latest episode of the Syfy original series “Eureka.”

Not that it’s ever a tough sell with me – “Eureka” is, after all one of the smartest and most entertaining shows on TV. I know this cable sweet spot doesn’t attract the word of mouth of shows on the networks or on HBO, but trust me, it’s worth your time.

On previous shows, I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with several stars of “Eureka,” including Colin Ferguson, Niall Matter and Neil Grayston. But today us fans of the show get an extra dimension: a behind-the-scenes peek with writer and executive story editor Eric Wallace.

ERIC WALLACE podcast excerpt: “We made a bold choice to revamp things. We like what we’re doing, we feel strongly about it — let’s stick with it. This is the real universe. We’re staying here and not going back. We thought the best way to do it was just not to comment. Syfy said, ‘Go for it and don’t ever go back.'”

Wallace joined the show in season one as an assistant before joining the writing stuff full time. Now he’s one of the most visible faces of the show’s writing room and his work is featured on the August 8 episode.

And when he’s not writing for “Eureka,” Wallace has a second gig as a comic book writer. He’s behind “Mister Terrific,” one of the titles DC Comics is launching as a first issue this fall (Sept. 14).

  1. What makes me love Eureka and the whole Syfy Monday night lineup has everything to do with the writing of Eric Wallace and those like him. Those who create real characters in unreal circumstances. Where it’s easy to believe that a place like Eureka exists because the characters are like people you know. In your discussion about diversity, what makes it “terrific” is that that the diversity is NOT the story. Yes, the characters are not all of the same race, gender, or sexual orientation but the events that happen are not because of it or even in spite of it, they are just things happening to characters in the story. I watch Eureka because it’s one of those rare places on television where intelligence is revered, cool and sexy. No one is put down or made fun of because they have a large vocabulary or because they are fascinated by numbers and puzzles. Writers like Eric Wallace create a world that I would want live in, to work in and to raise a family in. I’m delighted to hear that he’s continuing to write for DC and it makes me excited for future stories both in print and on TV.
