“I’ve actually used a lot of influence from Mega Man in the new season of Eureka. Listen in the first episode of season 3 and you’ll hear some blatantly obvious homages. I’ve introduced a lot of 8-bit NES and Gameboy sounds to my writing template, most of them sampled directly off the old hardware. It’s been a fascinating sound to play around with. I also pulled heavily from 16-bit systems, including the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis for some old-school FM synthesis. One of the things that makes Eureka so much fun is that I get to do this kind of experimentation.” – Sci-Fi composer Bear McCreary

Eureka is my guilty little pleasure on TV, I really enjoy it. I never caught onto this while watching the show. I guess this will give me a reason to go back and watch it again.
