I was sitting in a dark cubicle in 2003 when I received a mysterious phone call.

Last night whilst combing through the ever expanding netflix queue, I decided to give a new show a shot. That show? Eureka, a syfy (still hate that name) series that is full of people I know from movies and other series (hello Miles Dyson) and is honestly one of the most endearing shows I’ve seen in a while. Usually a show needs a few episodes to get off its feet, two of my favorite current shows, 30 Rock and Community, both had this starting hiccup where it seems the writers don’t have the characters fully realized yet and it seems as if this world just didn’t exist before you got there, then they either stumble or hit a stride. Both of the previously mentioned shows vie for my favorite show on television titles and are highly recommended.

Things like playing in a story driven atmosphere vs playing in a quest driven atmosphere vs playing in an achievement or goal oriented way. I play this game in a highly story driven matter, one that I don’t like to go back and revise, I like to live with my mistakes as if they organically happened and there is nothing I can do about them.
