Syfy canceled Eureka and renewed Warehouse 13 over the course of a couple of days. Fans of the shows have reported feeling shappy, both happy and sad, at alarming intervals.
Warehouse 13 will get a fourth season. Eureka will get one bonus episode to wrap up the series, after Syfy announced a six-episode final season, then retracted that news.
Here's the Warehouse 13 news. And here's the Eureka story.
To sum up: Eureka almost got half a final season, but then got only one episode. Then Syfy said Warehouse 13 got a whole 13-episode season.
That is the TV equivalent of you getting dumped, then not getting your records back, then another person going steady with your ex the same day.
Eureka already has episodes finished that have not yet aired. That is the TV equivalent of your ex breaking up with you, then going out with you as just friends.
Fans of both report the inability to focus on Internet campaigns to save Eureka, because the venomous outrage needed to fuel those endeavors has been dampened by the renewal of Warehouse 13.
The campaign to save the show is at Save Eureka. Another suggestion, from SF Signal: buy stock in Syfy's owner Comcast.
Fans of Warehouse 13 who are not Eureka fans could not be contacted for this story, due to loud partying.
