Syfy's 'Eureka' returns for one last adventure

"There've been a lot of changes since you've been gone," says one "Eureka" character to another as the small-town sci-fi series returns for its fifth and final season at 9 p.m. Monday.
Do tell.
Almost anything I could say about the episode would be a a spoiler - though let's just say the surprise near the beginning isn't the last - but for fans of the quirky charmer about a town full of geniuses and the average-bright sheriff (Colin Ferguson) who tries to keep them from hurting themselves, it should be enough to know that it's back for 13 episodes, including a series finale that Syfy says "will complete the journey of the residents of the unique little town of Eureka."
Given that Syfy reportedly canceled the series as production began on the original season finale, that may have taken some doing, even with the addition of an episode to make up for the loss of a sixth season.
But the producers of "Eureka" have been nothing but inventive so far, so I'm hoping for the best.
