Sally Ride was my idol as a child. I was too young to remember watching the launch, but I remember wanting to be her when I grew up. If it wasn’t for all the damn math…

Amy Berg, Eureka co-executive producer, bids a fond farewell to the funny, smart and inventive Syfy series, which aired its last episode on Monday (July 16).
It’s hard to say goodbye to something that’s been a part of your life for so long. Although I only joined the show at the start of season four, I’ve been a fan since its premiere. There has always been something magical about Eureka. Not just what you see on screen, but behind the scenes as well. The show brought together an amazing collection of humans, from our writing staff to our production assistants and every member of the cast and crew. Everything about it just… clicked. There will never be another television series quite like Eureka and there will never be another job quite like it, either.
Read her full farewell post at our sister blog, Armchair Commentary, and stay tuned: Berg will be providing more of her insider perspective via Hollywonk later this week.
