Does any one person read the scripts for the show. It's all over the place like there's a bunch of writers working on different parts of a script and then its cobbled together without any overview.
Very much like a syfy channel movie.
Every scene has something wrong, something out of place.
Continuity is fuzzy, things just happen.
Oh well its the syfy channel. Dresden files was the only decent series they ever aired.
Eureka was ok for a while but it gets a little old with every episode about a sheriff who has trouble tying his shoes called in when a secret labratory filled with the worlds smartest have a technical problem and the sheriff says something like - Can't we reverse the irradiater to radiate in the other direction-, then all the scientist say - Yeh that might work.

If you haven't found your answer yet, Script Magazine has a podcast by a new Warehouse13 writer:

Wear your touk!


If you want a better description of what goes on in TV writing read some books and/or Heroes DVD Commentaries but that depends on who is on the commentary.
