Eureka 1:03: Before I Forget 
13th-Aug-2008 03:14 pm

Eureka and I started off on a bad foot: I wasn't sure what to expect, it didn't mesh well with my attention-issues; and some of the subject matter hit my 'oh that's just not on' squick triggers. After watching the first two eps, I left it a couple of weeks while drakhenDrakhen was on holiday, and yesterday we all sat down to watch 1.03.

If you've been reading my journal at all recently, I bet you're expecting me to be all in a huff because of perceived problems with gender, race, etc in it.

Admit it, you are, aren't you?

Well actually -I liked it. I liked the story (abusive husband, wife acquires her own agency to deal with it - the men still 'rescue' her, but it's clear it wasn't really needed), I didn't see any racial undertones I didn't like, and the characters are growing on me.

The pacing's still a little slow  - sometimes I forgit what's going on because I wasn't not paying attention, but that's me, not the show.

Now if only the avis we're watching it on weren't such terrible quality.

Heh. I went all 'wait, what major race and gender issues?' for a second, til my brain clicked over.

The show definitely is slow paced at the beginning. It warms up eventually, though!

Is that the one with the memory-erasure-thingum?
