Eureka is a quiet, small town in [[TheOtherRainforest Oregon]] filled with scientists working on the most advanced technology in the world. All this is highly top secret and under the purview of the Department of Defense. And into this quirky, bizarre town comes [[OnlySaneMan Jack Carter]], former U.S. Marshal and newly appointed sheriff of Eureka. Much of the show's humor comes from Carter [[FishOutOfWater attempting to deal]] with the [[MundaneUtility everyday use of futuristic tech]] (including the AI that runs his house), and the ForScience mentality of the town's population and the disasters this frequently leads to. A good percentage of the disasters stem from the work of the scientists at Global Dynamics, the research and development company in town. It has had at least three different heads of company throughout the show's run, which should tell you [[DangerousWorkplace what kind of a place it is]].

* RedShirt: In ''H.O.U.S.E.'', the bottle episode, the guy who gets vaporized once a bunch of main/recurring characters are locked together in a room...with a pizza guy. When it's time for things go bad is to get serious, the pizza guy gets vaporized. Possibly intentionally as a nod to this trope, he was wearing a red shirt.
