Hi. Anyone who knows something new about this show? The show sounds interesting, has a cool plot.

Plot summery:
After saving the president's life, a pair of FBI agents are whisked away to a top-secret location that houses supernatural objects that they government has collected for centuries. Their new assignment: retrieve some of the missing objects and investigate reports of new ones.

We need more scifi on the television, and what i herad is that Scifi channel has given the show a greenlight.

Skiffy ordered a total of eleven eps from warehouse 13.

Looks like they try to pair it with Eureka what would make totally sense.

Is 'Warehouse 13' going to be the lead-in show?

ECW is still pulling in a 1.2-1.3 Nielsen ratings. Haven't kept up with it, but Eureka's ep 5 'Show Me the Mummy' got a 2.0 rating and the week before had a 1.8 rating...pretty solid numbers.

SCI FI's Warehouse 13 begins production in Canada

SCI FI announced that its newest original series, Warehouse 13, has begun production in Toronto with an eye to a July premiere.

Eleven episodes are in production, in addition to the previously produced two-hour pilot.

Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly and Saul Rubinek star in the one-hour dramedy from Universal Cable Productions.


After saving the life of the president, two Secret Service agents find themselves abruptly transferred to Warehouse 13—a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota, which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government.

The Warehouse's caretaker, Artie (Rubinek), charges Pete (McClintock) and Myka (Kelly) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him to control the warehouse itself. CCH Pounder, who appears in the pilot, returns in a guest-starring role as Artie's boss, Mrs. Frederic.

Warehouse 13 comes from Universal Cable Productions and is executive-produced by Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel), who also serves as show runner. David Simkins (The Dresden Files) is executive producer; Jace Alexander (Burn Notice) is co-executive producer and director; and Stephen Surjik (Monk) is producer/director.

I think this show actually looks pretty interesting. Here's a preview clip that SciFi Wire (or is that SyFy Wire now? ;) posted. The link is to the post with the clip embedded.

As far as the casting goes, I'm not sure about Eddie McClintock, but I really like Saul Rubinek. I think I'll try this one out at least - the trailer's got my attention.

Looks like a fun show. Should be worth a look-see.

A big warehouse in the middle of the Badlands would be obvious and all of the locals would know it was there. So would all of the hikers, paleontologists, park rangers, and probably a lost tourist or two. Will be interesting to see how that is explained.

The Badlands ain't the middle of nowhere. It is on the edge of nowhere, and only if you don't "know where" you are. ;)

Good cast, from what I saw on the trailer.

Warehouse 13 is Eureka lite kind of drama. I think if you take the concept of Eureka and maybe add some elements of the Dresden Files, you might get Warehouse13.

As per Eureka, last time I checked they are still pulling in the top ratings for the network. Yet, they show less and less. What is wrong with that picture? They should show less and less of Ghost Plumbers. :p

It is confusing when a great show gets shown less and less or moved around a lot and other shows get full network support.

Of course, this is usually a YFMV (your fave may vary), but it seems like many of my faves end up on the short end of the network stick. Guess I'm not part of the crowd (except for the cool fans here). :)

The buffows at Scifi are the most confused bunch. They have their really cheap homegrown shows like Ghosthunters, and all the reruns, their own movie productions and then a few headliners like Eureka, BSG (now over), Stargates (2 down, 1 upcoming), etc. Whenever a show does really well, they string it out to build up suspense in hopes of obtaining more add revenue based on hype. BSG took over 5 years to run 4 seasons, and then they wonder why they see a decline in the numbers. Instead of building momentum, they kill it each time in misguided market/ad revenue timing decisions.

I have high hopes for Warehouse 13. What caught my eye was CCH Pounder, whom I really like as an actress (she was excellent in The Shield recently). I am sad she will have a secondary part, I was hoping she would be a primary character.

it looks intriguing.

in some ways, the premise has been done a dozen times, it's kinda a rip-off of X-Files, just with them looking for spiffy toys instead of monsters and aliens. What'll determine its success is the writing and if they can find creative ways to tell the stories, preferably without getting bogged down in the expected 'rival sekret govt agency flummoxes them on a regular basis and who is this dark and mysterious villain?' plot or story arc

Basically you just sum why this type of series is so hard to do.
But Fringe is doing it well but they have got a very good writing team and a budget to match.
Why this show does not, well the producer was also a producer on the dresden files which got council because it was to expensive to produce. Although I hope to be proven wrong I just got a feeling this show is going to go the same way.

I do hope they actually going to explore why these objects exist and other governments want them just as much as the American. I hope they avoid all the obvious storylines, aliens, supernatural, and give us something coherent and original.

I also want more story arc to the president, I mean you save his normally you get a congressional medal, flown round half the country and treated extremely well.
These two get sent to a warehouse with stuff which do weird things and might kill them any second, and stuck in the middle of know where.
so I think they be missing a storyline there if we do not find out more.

I wish we get a other season of Lost Room which was fantastic.

Allison Scagliotti cast in Warehouse 13

Allison Scagliotti (Drake & Josh) has been cast in Warehouse 13, the upcoming SCI FI original one-hour dramedy adventure series, the channel announced.

She joins the previously announced cast members Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek and CCH Pounder. Warehouse 13 will premiere July 7 with a two-hour pilot, starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

With a natural aptitude for science and technology, Donovan's talents enable her to manipulate and activate many of the objects contained in the Warehouse to help the Team.

Warehouse 13 is about two Secret Service agents who find themselves abruptly transferred to a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government.

The series is executive-produced by Jack Kenny, who also serves as show runner. David Simkins (Dresden Files) is executive producer; Jace Alexander (Burn Notice) is co-executive producer and director of the pilot; and Stephen Surjik (Monk) is producer/director of the series.

More Guest Star's Announced

Other guest stars include Gossip Girl's James Naughton; Roger Rees of Cheers; Eureka's Joe Morton, Erica Cerra and Niall Matter; and Ivan Sergei from Crossing Jordan.


Rundown of the guest spots

Sergei will play Ross, an EMT from Unionville, N.Y. Ross and some of the other townspeople begin to display bizarre behavioral symptoms—involuntary (and potentially dangerous) expressions of their subconscious desires.

Helfer stars as FBI Agent Bonnie Belski, who clashes with Pete and Myka when they interfere with a case on her Chicago turf. But after the third inexplicable bank takeover, she finds herself willing to make use of their expertise.

Flanigan portrays the handsome and wealthy Jeff Weaver, whose charm captures Myka's interest, but he finds himself under Pete and Myka's scrutiny when a sculpture on which he bid vanishes in an impossible heist.

Naughton is Gilbert Radburn, a well-tailored high-profile entrepreneur. When a competitor threatens his intended acquisition, Radburn's suspicious behavior brings him under Pete and Myka's scrutiny.

Rees is MacPherson, one of Artie's former Warehouse colleagues, who has gone rogue and is now competing with the team to gather dangerous and powerful objects for his own use.

Cerra and Matter portray Jillian and Gary Whitman, small-time thieves on the Las Vegas strip whose fortunes, twisted by the strange power of luck-inducing artifact, take a fantastic turn.

Morton stars as John Hill, a charismatic prison inmate and an extremist religious leader in a Florida prison.

Sheppard is Mr. Valda, the enigmatic representative of the Regents, the mysterious organization that controls Warehouse 13. He disapproves of Artie's methods as the team leader of the Warehouse and isn't afraid to let him know it.

Hogan portrays Myka's father, Warren Bering, who receives a dangerous object anonymously in the mail, which puts his life in jeopardy. Hogan's real-life wife, Susan, will play Myka's mother.

Mark Sheppard reveals Warehouse 13 secrets and his guest role

Mark Sheppard, who is well known to sci-fi fans for roles in Firefly and Battlestar Galactica, told SCI FI Wire that he shot a quick-turnaround guest appearance on SCI FI's upcoming original series Warehouse 13.

"A while back, I got a lovely call from my friends at SCI FI, nine and a half pages of dialogue, to do in a day," Sheppard said in an exclusive interview Wednesday at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, where he was promoting The Conduit, in which he does a voice. "I was actually out doing publicity for The Conduit on the East Coast. And they called and said, 'Can you go to Toronto to rehearse on Sunday to shoot on Monday?' I'm like, 'I'm in New York. It's not that hard.' So it was perfect."

Julie in Chicago: So, Warehouse 13—another pair of clashing boy-girl government agents who investigate the paranormal. Is this déjà vu worth a view?
Yes! The pilot charmed our socks off, and everyone should at least take a peek into Warehouse 13 before putting it on the shelf with other genre shows. The chemistry between leads Eddie McClintock and Joanne Kelly is good stuff, and despite its familiar premise, it is hard to pin down what show runner Jack Henry told us is really an "action-adventure proceduramedy"

Why Warehouse 13's writers looked to Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn for inspiration

The main characters in SCI FI's upcoming Warehouse 13 are FBI agents guarding supernatural artifacts, but their inspirations have more to do with classic romantic comedy stars such as Cary Grant, Myrna Loy and Katharine Hepburn, the series' executive producers said.

Warehouse 13 pairs the reluctant agents Pete Lattimer and Myka Bening and assigns them to track down and retrieve ancient and powerful artifacts scattered across the globe before they fall into the wrong hands.

In a conference call, executive producers Jack Kennedy and David Simkins told reporters that the action adventure has its antecedents in part in the screwball comedies of the 1930s and '40s and that the actors had a say in how their characters were created.

The following Q and A features edited excerpts of the Kennedy and Simkins interview.

Forget those old Ark of Covenant and Holy Grail relics that Indiana Jones used to obsess over. In SCI FI Channel's upcoming Warehouse 13, Secret Service agents Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock) and Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) have a more eclectic group of artifacts to track down.

Producers hint at the mystery behind Warehouse 13

The writers of Syfy's new original series Warehouse 13 didn't arbitrarily choose that number for the title or intend it to pay homage to Jason Voorhees.

Rather, the "13" will directly tie into the history of the enigmatic building housing all the powerful objects gathered by a covert government agency. (Possible spoilers ahead!)

Liked the show. It has some awkward bits, but that'll get sorted out in time and it looks to be a fun romp along the way. It has bits and pieces of other things mixed into it- as so many things do- but having seen the premiere I didn't immediately think, "OMG! This is just like that other show!" which is usually a good sign, in my book. I'll be watching.

Mediocrity wins again at Scifi...oops, Syfy.

If this show debuted in the Fall-Spring, I would give it zero chance. The fact it has just about no competition should mean it will survive for a while at least. But should it? My question is always why settle for average. Why do we have to keep accepting subpar pseudo-Science Fiction? Why can't Science Fiction fans expect a show with quality such as The Shield, The Wire, Sopranos, etc. I have heard the promos and advertising that BSG was the best drama on TV. Well, no it was not, not even by a long shot when compared to either The Shield or Wire. Is it that hard to find decent quality writers, producers, and directors?

I saw nothing in this show that would set it apart from any other run of the mill long forgotten, long since canceled shows. There is no depth to characters, nor the story. It has a formula that is generic at heart, that will be predictable to the end. I see no characters that can give a damn about should they be removed from the series. I think just about any viewer of either Shield or Wire were extremely shocked to say the least when Lem and Omar were killed off respectively. This show, well I don't know if we could even notice. The characters are so generic they could have new ones plugged in without anyone noticing.

I guess I for one am just tired at the direction of TV as a whole. I want quality, is that too much to ask for? I want originality, is that too much to ask for as well? When Farscape first aired, I was blown away by just how much different it was from any other show. During the first couple of seasons, this show was truly original (although it dragged itself down in the end). Even Stargate SG-1, when it first aired, was quite original in many ways. Hence why these shows became fan favorites and classics. This show, and I would include Eureka in this as well, will not be shows that are remembered fondly years from now.

I guess we can not be too surprised, what with the number of remakes, re-imaging, etc. Hollywood has become allergic to originality, quality, and risk.

I didn't really have any particular interest in this show, but I ended up watching the premiere anyway. I still feel kind of "meh" about it. For a premiere, it felt really slow. All in all, it could be interesting. Probably not the kind of show that will grab my attention, but worth watching if I'm bored.

Saul Rubinek is usually quite good, and he didn't disappoint. I don't really feel anything for the lead guy and the lead girl (they both seem rather bland at this point), so Saul's character is probably the biggest draw for me.

I thought the show rubbish and likely won't tune in again.
It'll be the subsequent weeks that will be telling for the shows future.

SciFi Wire:-


The Tuesday premiere of Syfy's new original series Warehouse 13 was the network's biggest launch of a scripted series since Eureka in 2006, pulling in a total audience of 3.5 million viewers and putting the newly rechristened network on top among its peers for the night, the network announced.

The show's ratings made Syfy the most-watched ad-supported cable network in the 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. prime-time period.

The debut of the series surpassed last October's premiere of Sanctuary by 29 percent in total viewers and 20 percent among adults aged 18-49.

Warehouse 13 drew the third-highest total viewership for a Syfy original series, trailing only the series premieres of Stargate Atlantis (4.2 million total viewers on July 16, 2004) and Eureka (4.1 million total viewers on July 18, 2006).

Those are really good numbers, I hope they can maintain them. I think the show will likely stay between the 1.5 and 2.0 mark which is excellent for live+SD for SyFy. Will be VERY interesting how Eureka does on Friday. We'll see for sure if the dreaded Friday timeslot will also effect Eureka.

With those numbers, I would not be surprised if they order another season immediately.

The pilot was okay - I didn't love it, nor did I hate it. It did its job in that I saw enough to want to tune in for the next episode.

At first, I was surprised that it got such high numbers, however, because it has a Eureka feel, I suppose I should have expected relatively high numbers.

Well considering I didn't go into this with high expectations, with it being a show on Skiffy, I didn't come away disappointed. I liked it well enough for what it was and think it has potential as something to watch during the barren summer months.

The sub plot was so-so and the ending cheesy, but I like the characters well enough. I'll tune in again. :)

With a 2.5 HH rating for the premiere with 3.5 Million viewers, I highly doubt it will be going anywhere soon. It beat out Sanctuary's premiere by more than half a million viewers. It was the 3rd highest premiere for the network, for a drama series. Atlantis was # 1, followed by Eureka. A show like this likely has a low production budget, so it is just extra gravy to the network.

I don't think you are alone in settling for lousy Scifi rather than no Scifi. I myself had no interest in this show, nor did I believe for a second it would be of either interest or quality.....yet I did watch it. The why of course is what else is on? Not to name any other shows specifically, but I have seen over the years a general acceptance of a lot of show that were mediocre at best. With reality TV continuing to grow the choice of scripted TV shrinks, to which the size of genre and Scifi is getting close to non-existant. So sad.

Agree with all said here. Very bland pilot... could be intriguing premise, but nothing to show me yet. Characters fairly uninteresting, with Saul Rubinek (sorry if I didn't get the last name correctly) a bit of a stereotype of eccentricity. Liked Bob Newhart in The Librarian much better.

However, also like everyone else, I'm willing to give this a couple more episodes, but, damn, make those lead characters more interesting. I'm getting so sick of cliches... it's like there is no originality left in the world!

Sci Fi UK acquires 'Warehouse 13'

Sci Fi UK has secured the first-run pay-TV rights to Warehouse 13 from NBC Universal International Television Distribution, it has been announced.

The series, starring Eddie McClintock and Joanne Kelly, centres around two Secret Service agents who find themselves abruptly transferred to a top-secret storage facility.

"We’ve had a fantastic run of highly anticipated, much talked about premiere series on the channel this year - and Warehouse 13 is no exception," said NBCU Global Network’s head of channels James Newton.

"There was a tremendous buzz ahead of its launch in the US and the first night ratings are testament to what a fantastic show it is. The special effects and exciting plot twists make it a real gem for our autumn schedule."

The sci-fi series joins Knight Rider, Dollhouse and Legend Of The Seeker in landing a UK premiere on the channel.

Finally watched the pilot. Umm.

I'm.....dubious, I guess is the best word. I didn't hate it, and I'll keep watching for a while (at least through the Joe Flanigan episode). But I wasn't immediately in love with the show like I was when I watched the Eureka pilot. It's a little....well, yeah, bland.

I think I could like it, but it needs a little more substance. It's all a little vague and cryptic for my tastes. And it feels like it takes itself a little too seriously, and a show like this really can't do that and get away with it (IMO anyway).

Most seem to think the pilot was bland and "meh" but the premise sounds promising. The real question is if the show can hold most of the audience from the heavily advertised pilot and give SyFy above average ratings.

My personal opinion echos the critic's reviews. I like Saul Rubinek, but the pilot just wasn't engaging enough to make the show a must see. I will DVR the show and watch it when I have time.

you know for a show to catch my attention they need either interesting characters or a good theme.
and this show had neither.
the characters were awfully boring and bland, not to mention bringing in the lead's supernatural hunches and explaining it so early in the show was a terrible call.
and the theme was.. well disappointing, it didn't leave me wondering what else is lying around in that warehouse and how these artifacts came to be.

so I'd say the main element this show is missing is MYSTERY.

I have little doubt this show will last. I think it has one chance, and only one chance. That is the fact it is airing in the summer where they have basically no competition. Here, as well as other sites, the general consensus seems to be one large "meh" reaction. Truthfully how many shows have started out dull as nails and turned into gems in a few episodes?

Enjoy it while it lasts, I would not be surprised if the next ratings sink. And is this show really that cheap a production it can last with low ratings?

Finally got around to watching the pilot today, kinda had a Bones/Supernatural hybrid feel to it. Thought the lead both worked well together, while the story/plot was interesting enough to keep my attention for the full 80ish minutes, but it wasn't anything special. But that's the thing pilots are more often than not mixed bags, its quite rare to find a super pilot. I'll see where this goes over the next few episodes.

After watching the pilot last night.... It feels like X-Files meets Friday the 13th: The Series from FOX (the show with the Satanic cursed items that made people kill or do odd things but usually kill).

that's a fatal weakness of theirs. many people are like me and only watch the 1-3 hours a week that they find interesting.

Hello everyone!
So I just saw the pilot for Warehouse 13 the oter day and I was curious what everyone else thougth about it.

I thought it was pretty good. A good mix of Mystery/Science Fiction and whatever type of Genre you would call it, being based off of urban legends and myths adn the like. I liked Pete the best, he's fun, funny and loose. Mika is also interesting. Real depth of character, she really has a backround but she's so serious. I don't remember the third character's name but he's aslso funny with the warehouse stuff "I've got to lose weight". Mrs. Frederick and her assistant are also quite interesting I hope we get to see more of them as well as the girl in the motel. I'd like to better understand her connection with the warehouse and the "unnamed unincorporated settlement" The writing is definitely good. I'd like to see some greater story arcs I hope. If the writing continues to be as good as it has been in the pilot then this show shoudl take off and be rather fine I think.

What do you all think?

Actually the mods had moved my other thread. I didn't see this one and the search engine on this site is frankly not very good. It ought to search thread titles in addition to reply posts, but it doesn't. When the first result is a "warehouse" and no 13 I assume there is no standing thread. After all it is the logical thing to do.

In any case I woudl argue that the show could actually be called Science Fiction. More like "Mytho-Fantasy/Mystery" where the setting is based of off a realm made up of myths and urban legends. Pandora's Box and Houdini's Wallet being prime examples. The plotlines seems to run around a more Mystery style of writing. I imagine the plot arcs will follow this as well. Finding out more about the former agents Artie told us about in his photograph and the lady at the motel. I'd like to learn more about Mrs Frederick. There are some elements of Science Fiction, more specificly the stun gun and video communicators thought their explanations could just as easily be labeled mytho-fantasy as well.

Exclusive Q & A- Tricia Helfer Takes on Warehouse 13

The hard working Tricia Helfer has been all over TV screens in the past few months – whether she was wrapping up her role as the Cylon Number Six on Battlestar Galactica, playing a recurring role on Burn Notice or guest starring on Chuck.

This Tuesday night at 9:00pm ET/PT, Helfer can be seen on Syfy's new series Warehouse 13, as FBI agent Bonnie Belski, who comes across lead characters Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly), as they work to stop a group of bank robbers with a very unusual weapon – a record that stops all those who hear it in their tracks, allowing the robbers to flee without anyone trying to stop them.

I recently spoke to Helfer about her guest role on Warehouse 13, along with some of her other upcoming projects – including playing the featured client of the Human Target on the pilot for that upcoming FOX series, and her return to the world of the Cylons for the TV-Movie Battlestar Galactica: The Plan.

I'm interested to see where this reluctant alliance between Artie and Dickenson goes. And I like that Myka and Pete aren't falling into the whole cliche of "he says something and she doubts everything he says until he proves it". Myka's still pretty "tightly wound" as Tricia Helfer's character put it, but at least she seems to trust Pete's gut instincts, and that's a good thing. It'll be interesting to see if he returns the favor, regarding the rumors he was told.

I thought it was a little better this week. It still relies a little overly heavily on the cliches (the ending scene with her calling her dad was totally textbook),but.... *shrugs* I did think it was better. YMMV.

There are a lot of shows that I think have potential. I'll watch the premiere and maybe even a few episodes afterward but eventually I just lose interest and don't care enough to tune in. Sometimes when I program the receiver to tune in automatically, I find myself turning the channel a few minutes later.

I don't have a real reason why I don't like the show, I just don't bother.

*shrug*

Because the pilot so unimpressed me I did not give it a thought since the premiere. Last night I was completely unaware it was on, that is until I went into Tivo and saw that it had recorded. So I gave it a shot, and the show did absolutely nothing to impress upon me that there is a reason to watch any more.

The one point I would like to make is this. When this show was originally announced, I had replied to a post (either here or at Scifi.com) that the concept of the show appeared bland and unoriginal. I lamented Scifi's risk averse nature to provide lame, run of the mill, boring, safe Science Fiction. In regards to Science Fiction, it is more like Scifi pop than actual Science Fiction. This isn't a "I told you so" moment, but rather a affirmation of my feelings for the Syfy channel. The past few years have brought us some of the worst in TV, anyone remember that trainwreck Trash Gordon?

Anyone remember Farscape? That was in may ways a risky show to air, yet it was good..and popular, and replaced by a reality TV show hosted by a failed hack actress. All this show has done is shown to us we need a TRUE Science Fiction channel that will air or produce quality Scifi!

I thought last night's ep was a little better than the pilot. But then, it hit one of my life long loves of music. I'd enjoy just about anything with music as a theme.

I liked that we're finally getting some meat with the psychic computer thingy that Artie had at the end

I disliked the cliche ending of the robberies aren't our business we'll let them get away with a felony Totally ruined any sort of believablity they have as law enforcement officers. Yes, the Secret Service protects the President and Veep but they also protect out money supply. They investigate counterfeit money and counterfeiters in the US and (I think) around the world.

They primarily have to make sure, that these funny objects stay locked up, and won't be used anymore.

I like this episode, by the way, and it starts to get me intrigued, which is good.

Agreed, and I hate to sound like a hard a$$, but as law enforcement officers they should have reported the perpetrators to the FBI. Yes, the money is insured through various government programs, but still, it's the tax payers who pay for it.

Interesting premise, although the ending was mawkish and unbelievable. And yes, I'm calling unbelievable despite the content of the ep itself. :P

Saying "it wasn't about the money" is a lie because it WAS about the money- they needed it in order to buy back the music. And making one person/family happy doesn't do much for all the people whose money was stolen. Or the banks themselves. There's a trickle-down effect. I remember reading about it in Going Postal by Terry Pratchett. ;)

The point is that just because the money is going to a "good" cause doesn't make it right. That's faulty reasoning and any REAL cop (or professional or, hell, anyone with an ounce of COMMON SENSE) would know that and would object.

Still, I'm curious to see where some of these elements are headed. I'm guessing that the "You have to stop her" thing either ties in to Mrs. Fredericks or is going to be part of some season arc thing. Although I'm still leaning towards Mrs. F. Who is she? What does she want? Does she REALLY have everyone's best interests at heart by locking this stuff away or does she have an ulterior- and dangerous- motive?

Or it'll be some precocious little tyke we meet later on who turns out to be the personification of Evil or something. ;)

I liked the second episode. I liked seeing Artie with the newer gadgets. Though I thought it was odd Pete and Myka didn't use any atypical gadgets. Though it could be an interesting contrast with Pete and Myka being fairly "normal" people, with Artie using the wild crazy gadgets when he leaves the warehouse. "Oh sorry, had a kodac moment" It definitely looks like theres some story arc buildup.

This show still hasn't managed to interest me, I will give it one more episode and if that doesn't do it then I will stop watching.

My problems with episode 2 were:

Why didn't Myka use her freakin gun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She neither drew it when pursuing the bank robbers nor when the robbers rescued their partner! She should have put several rounds into the person with the speakers in the coat.

Second thing was letting the robbers get away, there is no justification for this! It's practically like saying that you think robbery is justified if you really need the money which is just stupid and I don't believe for a second that two federal agents would act this way.

I will probably tune in for ep 3 as a last desperate attempt to find something interesting, but after that, I'm out unless there is dramatic improvement.

I don't know how I feel about this show. I've watched the first two episodes and I've been entertained by the show, but not interested by it at all. It seems almost like a guilty pleasure. IDK. It's like when it's not on, I think I don't like it, but then when I'm watching it, I do like it.

One of the pitfalls of DVR is you end up watching stuff you might not have otherwise, and this show might fall into that category. I'll give it a few more eps before I decide for sure.

If folks are that unhappy with it I say don't bother. Watching shows that don't really hold your interest isn't a lot of fun and can build up an attitude of resentment, which makes watching even LESS fun. You can always come back to it later if something down the road manages to look good enough to entice you to watch, but until then there's plenty of other stuff to watch/do.

And I'm not trying to be rude or anything, if someone manages to read it that way, I just think that with TV being a form of entertainment folks who watch should be entertained. ;) There's a lot of stuff I don't watch, even though others tell me I'm missing out.

Speaking as someone who's "anti" on a couple of other shows I can say that making people feel bad is definitely NOT the reason they gripe. Folks have genuine complaints and there's nothing wrong with that, but if the dislike is a near-continuous thing and you talk of "forcing" yourself to watch it or whatever then it's time to think about changing the channel. With it being a brand new show it isn't as if any loyalty is owed to it at this point unless folks are watching because of specific cast members/writers/whatever. And to be honest, I never quite "got" the loyalty thing anyway. Not when it means you're making yourself suffer for an inanimate object or person/group who don't know you and don't care what you think or what you're putting yourself through for "their" sake.

If folks want to keep grumping that's great (I really WOULD be a hypocrite if I objected!) but if after a few more weeks there's still no improvement in quality I still say they are better off bailing than sticking it out in hopes it will get better. Which'll still leave them with some material to gripe about. ;)

See there is Extreme Anti (obsessed with hating a show) and their is not liking a show. Some folks take it too far on an internet forum. One of the major issues with GW, but they are starting to fix that with the new Vision statement.

My opinion is, if you hate a show don't watch it, and don't gripe about it and/or bash it to an obsession to where people knows every post you make is going to be an attack towards the show. I feel people have every right to make an opinion and complain about something they don't like, but to dwell on that opinion to the point of annoying the rest of the forum is truly over the top. It's like "YES, WE KNOW YOU HATE THE SHOW AND WANT IT TO BE CANCELLED".

I think the show really has a lot of potential and a lot of material to work with. I love that the show is like a CSI or a X-files type show where you have to try and guess what the mystery is. I think the show is very unpredictable and I cannot wait till next week. :)

Nice thought, but it doesn't work. Myka had her earplugs in so she was never affected by the song. That would be convenient, though, as it would explain why a straightlaced by-the-book officer like her would allow herself to be talked into letting thieves get away with a crime. The guy maybe would be swayed by the sob story but she shouldn't have cared, no even with her daddy issues.

So i just watched episode two, while it wasn't bad, it wasn't good either, it was just a bit meh. IMO, the case in the pilot was a lot more interesting that the case in this weeks episode, but neither were anything special. However in crime drama type shows, more often than not, the cases ain't anything special and its the character that make the show. For me that's the problem here. W13 has a very Bones feel to it in general, but the difference being while there was/is Chemistry between the main characters in Bones (Brennan & Booth), these almost none between Lattimer & Myka. Separately i think Eddie McClintock as Lattimer is great but Joanne Kelly as Myka is very ordinary and nothing special. I'm hoping that the Chemistry will improve between the character, and for me that will improve the show. I think its just a wait and see, after all this wouldn't be the first show that starts off a bit dull and shift gears after a few episodes.

Yet again, I agree with Madwelshboy! This show is nothing special and does lack chemisty. I love watching Bones because of the chemsistry between the characters, and this aspect is lacking from Warehouse 13. Sadly enough, I enjoyed watching Artie on his trek more than the main characters.

Well I know scifi ask a eureka clone, and well they got a flash gordon show instead, well may not that bad, but after watching the pilot there just so many things wrong with the show characters and the split between comedy and drama. which Eureka does well and this does not.

I liked the idea behind and reckon there protential but major progress need to be made on the characters.

I never the series and not series character combination anyway and the complete lack of chemistry between the characters just made it worst.

And the story line for the premiere was dull.

And they way over use music in scenes where slient ir actually hearing the characters speak was most important.

And then there just the complete lack originality in the series does not helped. An I think it taken way to much from Sanctuary for liking, immortal women, using historical characters pasts, a secrete base with strange artifacts instead of monsters, personally I like monsters better.

So I watched the pilot, didn't notice that I missed the second episode, and watched the third episode.

Still not sure if I like it or not. It's entertaining enough, if I don't have anything better to do. But I certainly won't anticipate watching it each week. Which, is honestly, pretty much how I feel about Eureka as well (except that Eureka is funnier and the pace isn't quite as slow). So far, it just feels like a generic mystery-of-the-week show.

It's still lacking that extra something that could make it stand out. But I'll give it a few more episodes to see if anything interesting develops.

Speaking of that bit in the beginning... Maybe it's just the fact that I saw Ghostbusters 2 recently, but that whole scene reminded me of the mood slime. First the bickering that was causing the box to jump/react to the negativity and then Artie dousing them with the purple goo that made them act goofy. I doubt there's a connection there, but it still made me smile. :)

Speaking of that bit in the beginning... Maybe it's just the fact that I saw Ghostbusters 2 recently, but that whole scene reminded me of the mood slime. First the bickering that was causing the box to jump/react to the negativity and then Artie dousing them with the purple goo that made them act goofy. I doubt there's a connection there, but it still made me smile. :)

Hey, you know now that you mention it... you're right. I can totally see that.


Is this show any good? Strikes me as eureka-ish and I hate eureka with a passion.... What would you compare it to if you had to?

Based off the two episodes I've watched, it's really hard to make comparisons at this point. At the moment, I'd compare it to Ghostbusters, just without Dan Aykroyd (therefore not as zany and outrageous). ;)

There might be some similarities to Eureka, but in general I think Eureka deals a bit more with the idiosyncrasies of the characters, and Warehouse 13 seems more like a mystery-of-the-week type show (although there might be more focus on characters later... they might also develop some major story arcs to break up the weekly mysteries... it's hard to tell at this point).

Seriously, if you're interested, watch an episode or two and see if you like the style of it. The most you'll lose is an hour or two of your time.

I agree...but when your DVR doesn't even like the show...it makes it difficult to watch an episode! ;)

I thought that this weeks episode was pretty entertaining. Pete is a funny guy, and is the main saving grace for the show so far. This episode showed a spark of chemistry between the leads, something that was not there previously, but still needs to be developed and fast. Because in a show like this it need to be there from the pilot. The case was more interesting than the previous two episodes,

im kinda glad that they didn't go with the pocket watch, that would have been a bit obvious, even if the chair was a random idea.

Will Warehouse 13's Leena be featured more in the future? I find myself wanting to know more about her and how she came to be working for/with Artie. Obviously she is not simply the proprietress of a B&B. — Dee

MATT: I agree; Leena (played by Genelle Williams) has something going on behind her eyes. You can count on seeing Artie's friend in at least four more episodes — including the season finale, in which she figures prominently.

Warehouse 13's ratings continue to grow

The fourth episode of Syfy's new original series Warehouse 13 recorded new series-high audiences in both adults aged 25-54 (1.8 million) and 18-49 (1.4 million), the network reported.

The episode, entitled "Claudia," delivered a 2.4 household rating and 3.3 million total viewers.

This is better than last week's new episode by 36 percent in adults 25-54 and 31 percent in adults 18-49 and tops the previous highs set by the July 7 series premiere by 6 percent in both adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.

Random fly-by pissings like that usually center on thoughts like, "Why did they cancel X just to produce crap like Z?"

Is W13 the most brilliant thing ever? Not in my opinion, no, but it continues to entertain me and gives me something to do on Tuesday nights so for now I'm not complaining too much.

Thought the most recent ep was interesting, but I would have liked some more info on how, exactly, the sister and Artie became "tied" to the brother and how exactly that energy feed worked. I'd also like to know why the brother didn't age- he was in another dimension, yes, but time seemed to pass more or less equally on both sides. It would almost have made more sense to have a big discrepancy- a couple of minutes "inside" equals hours "outside" as it'd not only explain the brother's non-aging but also how he managed to stay alive for 12 years without (I assume) being able to access things like food and water.

And yes, I know I'm overthinking it, but that's what I do. :P

BTW, is it safe to assume that this is what the mystery voice a couple eps back meant when he told Artie "you have to stop her!"? Kinda... disappointing, if so. I'd kinda been hoping for more of a season arc than just a few eps, but oh well. It still worked. More or less.

Warehouse 13 Needs to Upgrade Its Sci-Fi Infrastructure

Just because Sci Fi Channel changed its name to Syfy doesn’t mean it should do away with science fiction.

This is a nice way of saying that Warehouse 13, one of the channel’s more interesting series, needs to foreground its sci-fi and at least partially lose its supernatural crutches. If not, it could find itself thrown down television’s memory hole with other ambition-deficient shows like Heroes.

Can we leave the pissfest out of the thread, please? :rolleyes: Also, stating opinion as fact is unfriendly, inaccurate and bound to cause nothing but trouble, so let's try and keep that in perspective, too, mmmkay?

Personally I'd say W13 is even lighter and fluffier than Eureka but there's always room for it to get deeper as time goes on. *shrug* Would it be nice to have a hard-hitting, meaty series to sink my fannish teeth into? Of course, but I wouldn't want EVERY SINGLE SHOW on Skiffy to be grim and serious. Steak dinner every single night would get boring. Sometimes it's nice to have corndogs instead. Or a twinkie.

And for those who think there are too many twinkies on Skiffy already, well... what did you expect? This is SKIFFY we're talking about; they aren't exactly known for being a smart, brainy network. Stuff like BSG is the exception rather than the rule. This is the network that thinks ECW belongs in the scifi/fantasy/adventure category. You think W13 is crap? Sure, fine, but at least it's a legitimate genre series. LOL! Things could always be worse, and when it comes to Skiffy they frequently are. ;)

There are many, MANY ways in which W13 could be improved to make it more serious and/or compelling... And I have no doubt that if it was "darker" there'd be people complaining about that, too. Ahh, fandom; you're never happy with anything. No matter what.

If folks balk at W13 being a "good" addition to Skiffy's lineup then perhaps it's safer to say that it's a "typical" addition- not wholly good but not, IMO, wholly bad, either. Nothing wrong with wanting better things, but keep in mind what network you're watching. LOL!

I still think W13 is harmless fun and the lack of additional programming isn't the ONLY reason I watch. I think there would be something on opposite it during the Fall, but I'd still watch it on scifi.com (although I suppose it's syfy.com now) and if the other show (can't recall what it might be right now) turned out to be crap, I'd probably go back to watching W13 "live." Not that it matters since I'm not a Nielsen household. *shrug*

I also don't see much point in getting angry at folks for disagreeing. Once again it's a matter of OPINION, not fact. Some people like the show, some people hate it and NEITHER SIDE IS RIGHT OR WRONG. Sheesh.

I found the place that has the steampunk keyboards for sale, but woof! I don't like it THAT much! It does make me wish I had the mad skills for that kind of custom modification stuff, though. Having an "antique" computer would be so, so awesome. *wistful sigh*

Stating opinions as fact, that is the number one reason why GW is so hostile at times.

I generally like the show, its not “Must watch TV” but I will continue to watch it.

I do think they need to work on the two Secret Service main characters since they seem to be coming across unevenly. One is suppose to be the intuitive one and the other the analytical one but they don’t seem to portray it consistently. I don’t necessarily blame the actors since the scrip, director and editors have a big part to play in what gets shown. I just find that a good character portrayal can really help out a show and turn it from a “watch it when I can” to a “must watch” program. The other characters seem to be more clearly defined, its just the Secret Service ones who are a little uneven to me.

I just find it a bit strange that she's not in the cast photo, but Leena is and yet they could both be considered recurring guest stars...

Cast photo spoilered to save space:

Maybe I'm just trying to hope there is a twist to give me a reason to carry on watching the show, it's OK, but I usually wait and watch it and Eureka at the weekend, if something really has my interest I'll watch it live or next day.

Well, I see what you mean about the cast photo but (check spoiler below)
There would be a temporal displacement paradox if they were the same character, right? How would they explain that? and Mrs Fredericks has been that age for a long time. They addressed that earlier. Perhaps a time jump when she is needed

Kerrin in Portland, Maine: Can we get some scoop on Warehouse 13? I'm loving it!
So are we! Don't tell Artie, but Warehouse 13 executive producers David Simkins and Jack Kenny shared some secrets about what's in store for the storage-facility caretaker and his cohorts: "Later in the season, we meet a group called the Regents (nine average people, kind of like the Supreme Court, who make decisions about the warehouse) and see the dynamic between them and Artie and Mrs. Frederic. And we have a big surprise coming up with Leena at the very end of the season—a lot of things get turned on their heads. There are several surprises." Also, Leena's permanent houseguests, agents Pete and Myka, "go on a difficult hunt" for something that's long eluded Artie. "And unfortunately," Kenny says, "they find it."

True or...

Maybe one of the artefacts affected her and she can age down and up at will? I dunno, just guessing here :)

I've also got this feeling the new girl (the ginger one) doesn't make it through the season finale as she said in an interview she got finished filming her scenes a few days early and stayed around cos she couldn't believe it was coming to and end.

I find myself kind of looking forward to tomorrow night. I hope this show continues to improve each week.

Unfortunately, I still find myself indifferent about it. My DVR will record it...but if I miss it or the DVR messes up...I won't have heart failure or anything. I wish I could get excited by it.

Okay, I finally caught the latest episode thanks to hulu. This series is kinda growing on me. Its not good enough that I have to make sure I watch it on time, but it is entertaining. And really, isn't that what we watch for?

So far I've found it very enjoyable.

No, it's not rocket science and it's not brain surgery and it's not deep and profound, but it's fun. It doesn't take itself too seriously, but I find it an entertaining way to spend an hour.

Yes, if it had to go up against other shows during the fall, it might not make it, but then that's the very reason that SyFy/USA/TNT typically air their shows in the summer/winter season, so that they don't have to compete, and I for one am glad, since it gives me something to watch instead of reruns.

I really hope the show continues to build it's audience and gets picked up for a second season.

I wouldn't mind if that happened.

I haven't been posting my screencaps here, but I figured since Joe was in this ep I'd leave a link. Elements Caps (http://community.livejournal.com/krissiecaps/1862.html)

The silly part in the episode for me was when they were in one of the collectors homes, and in walked the construction worker, and they felt the need to raise there guns up to him because he gave him the stink eye earlier.

I just had to laugh at this part... I mean... come on.

Some other parts made me lift my eyes too, but overall it was a good episode I guess.
