First, we’re finally going to see The Dark Knight Rises – the 6pm screening this Wednesday the 1st of August at the Randwick Ritz. We’ll be meeting up in the lobby starting from around 5:30 or so in order that we can all go in together. Remember, having Arc membership will get you a discount from the Ritz, and showing your SpockSoc card to me will get you a $2 reimbursement.
This Friday’s screening is Eureka, season five. Eureka takes place in a high tech fictional community of the same name, located in the U.S. state of Oregon, and inhabited entirely by brilliant scientists working on new scientific advances. The town is operated by a corporation called Global Dynamics (GD), which is overseen by the United States Department of Defense. U.S. Marshal Jack Carter stumbles upon Eureka while transporting a fugitive prisoner (his own rebellious teenage daughter Zoe) back to her mother’s home in Los Angeles. When a faulty experiment cripples the sheriff of Eureka, Carter finds himself quickly chosen to fill the vacancy. Despite not being a genius like most members of the town, Jack Carter demonstrates a remarkable ability to connect to others, keen and practical insights, and a dedication to preserving the safety of Eureka.
When last we saw our heroes, the Astraeus – the spaceship intended to take explorers to Saturn’s moon Titan – had been hijacked, with most of the main characters on board, by persons not explicitly mentioned in dialogue but rather strongly hinted at by the season arc. So yeah. Where did they go?
Starting at 5pm this Friday in ChemSci M18 – pizza run as usual. Don’t miss it.
