11 TV Scientists We Love!


Henry Deacon, (Joe Morton) Eureka

Dialogue Sample: “It's like a riddle inside an enigma, wrapped in ten inches of titanium alloy.”

Made the List Because: Henry Deacon is an enigma himself—this guy is Joe Everyman who has layers of varied, brilliant scientist hidden underneath. You never know which amazing skill or identity he’ll reveal next—mechanic on minute, physicist the next, then town mayor. He’s also quite funny, resourceful, and the steadying hand when things around him get shaky. Mix that with a set of ethical standards Bill Adama would laud, and you have one incredible scientist.
