Jim Taggart will return to Eureka for the special holiday episode.
A few things I liked about the end of season three.
My confidence has been shaken, and now I’m going to have to rewatch some Tag-centric Eureka episodes to get my game back on!
One guy I’ve been missing lately is the unique and colorful Jim Taggart, fondly known as Tag. Some of my favorite episodes have included Tag’s Australian accent, his hiking boots and hunting vest, his nude form and his obsession with Lojack, the dog that first put in an appearance in the 2-hour premiere.
Taggart is Eureka’s biological containment specialist and working veterinarian and he would have been a great asset to have around in Show Me the Mummy and even What About Bob?, and yet he never appeared. Season three of Eureka has been entirely Tag-less.
With Taggart’s fondness for mechanical animals (think geese from Duck, Duck Goose — Season 2), I imagine he would have had an awesome biomimetic dog for Eureka’s dog show (think Best in Faux — Season 3), but he never put in an appearance.
I spent some time searching online, but all I could really come up with was the fact that Jim Taggart’s actor Matt Frewer spent quite a bit of time last year working on the Canadian drama Intelligence. I’ve never heard of the show before now, but then again, I’m not Canadian and it’s not scifi.
What it comes down to is that the Eureka writers might have just eased Taggart out of the series. Although I would love to have the show address what has happened to Jim Taggart (because I haven’t noticed yet that they have), I’m afraid Tag is gone for good.
Zane or Tag? My answer is no answer, because I like them both.
