Never let it be said that Eureka is big on giving away details. Two weeks ago we were treated to a shitty clip show and after taking a week off I assumed that was our season finale. Not so, apparently. Friday night my DVR was all ablaze and Eureka was back in full force. This week's episode titled “Have An Ice Day” marked the return of Taggart , Jo’s ex-boyfriend as well as Zane, Jo’s current boyfriend who has been away for the past two months. Drama!

Before I even get into this review, I know what you are going to say; "It's a Syfy Channel Original, what exactly did you expect?" Really, that's an acceptable response and I expect that. Still, every now and then they do manage to piece together a movie full of schlock and CGI that comes out mildly entertaining. It's not common, but it does happen. It's important to keep in mind what exactly the folks at Syfy are going for with these original movies which is nothing but camp, big CGI monsters and cheap entertainment.

Last week it seemed like all was fine and dandy in the town of Eureka. The mystery of the space craft had been solved, Henry had a replica of his long lost love, and Carter was about to finally get some action. The only question that was left was what the hell was going to happen next. Well I’m happy to report that the fine writers of “Eureka” took the ball and ran with it, full on.

Oh ship! The ship finally went down this past week on Eureka. The ship hit the fan in the episode titled “Ship Happens”. See what I’m doing here now? Don’t worry, I’ll keep it going. Because after last week's ship touch down in Eureka we finally got an entire episode dedicated to what and who was manning the space ship which has been sending radio signals to Eureka for the past few episodes.

Six episodes ago we learned that some sort of radio signal was being received in Eureka from outer space. We didn’t know what the signal was or who was sending it, but we knew it was getting closer. Well this week we finally got to find out in the episode “If You Build It…”. Of course in usual fashion we are left with more questions than answers.

Paris Hilton to guest star on the upcoming season of "Supernatural". I would make a joke about Supernatural being lame, but I've noticed lately that its fanbase is especially rabid when it comes to these things... so I'm putting up the white flag. The show's great! Love it!

Bryan Singer to produce 2012 themed miniseries for Syfy. Wow, that's the greatest/worst sentence I've ever typed. I don't think I'll be able to resist.

News landed today that starting on September 2nd, the unreleased episodes from last summer's "Fear Itself" will be available on FearNET. There will be 5 episodes in total.

On casting news, "True Blood's" Ann Woll joins the cast of Darren Lynn Bousman's "Mother's Day" remake. No word on what character she'll be playing. The production is shooting for a Spring release, so expect production to ramp up pretty quickly as we move into late Summer/Fall.

So Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" has the weirdest cast ever. Robert Deniro, Lindsay Lohan, Michelle Rodriguez... I'm pretty sure this is some kind apocalyptic sign here. Syfy should write this into their miniseries.

Bowling, there’s nothing quite like it. What other game gives you countless excuses to make jokes about how heavy your balls are. It’s really a amazing sport. Well this week’s episode of Eureka titled “It's Not Easy Being Green” revolved around a bowling match between the town of Eureka and Area 51.

Alright here we go, week three. Now we’re getting somewhere. This past week's episode promised two wonderful things, the title would have a Cypress Hill reference, “Insane In The P-Brain” and we would finally get some info on these radio signals that are directed at Eureka. Well both premises were delivered on but the latter was probably more of a dry hump then anything else.

Cool new motion poster for "Saw VI". This seems to be the new studio trend and I like it, except of course for the incredibly obnoxious music that you can't control. Might want to do something about that, guys.

The Syfy channel's remake of "Children of the Corn" will debut in September... just in time for harvest!

No one's sure exactly how it is going to happen, but news was reported yesterday that the original "Saw" is going to be converted into the new "Real-D" 3D technology. Would you pay to see the film again in a theater, with the new spin?

I can't possibly imagine that this is the first still from "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever", a film that seems like it's been in development for about 6 years now, but that's what the internet tells me. It was directed by a talented guy named Ti West, which is good, but all of the delays and the behind the scenes rumors do not give me hope.

"The Strangers 2" begins filming in September. Any ideas for a subtitle? How about "The Strangers 2: Even Strangier".
