When young super models rapidly age 50 years overnight, Pete and Myka go undercover in the glam world of high fashion to discover who - and what - is behind the transformations.

The awkward father/daughter moments between Claudia and Artie were priceless! The revelation and background on Myka was a little sad to hear from her. The words from Pete to her was funny but really touching. I had fun watching this one!

In a lot of ways this episode felt like an inverse of Burnout. In Burnout we saw Myka get very angry when an artifact almost killed Pete. Now Pete even stops his one liners and get quite steamed as was obvious when Myka gets hurt. I'm not a shipper of these two and I never will be but I do like the friendship and caring that comes with these two. Besides that it was a standard artifact hunt which I love by the way but nothing special. I'm little surprised it was the photographer and not the "old woman" behind this. Hower it being the camera was predictible That suspense is fun to see as always. Not to mention it was actually Artie who saves the day. How often do we see that?

All in all the A plot was fun even the fat jokes (I liked the Arby's one) about Myka. Because it was so hilarious. Who in there right mind would think Joanne Kelly is fat? It boggles the mind especially after wearing those fashion dresses.

I know it hardly a big surprise from me but I didn't care for the Claudia subplot. Its not like previous episodes where I found Claudia to be an insensitive jerk. Actually from what we saw its the exact opposite. She is just my least favorite character so I'm not interested. The scenes just bored me.

Pete playing with Barbies frightens me greatly.

I've seen this done so many times over the years on TV & movies that it bored me greatly and no Leena? I miss the old days of creepy artifacts. Instead they are doing the glitz and glam stuff. I'm getting really bored with all the camera & projection artifacts. Sounds like they are really running out of ideas.

I did like seeing Todd again though.

I so might skip the dreaded crossover next week. Looks like another Claudia episode anyway.

Too much Claudia, they really ruining it for me. And once again, Leena is not shown.

If it's just going to be the four of them, I'm done with it.

100 percent agree with you there, it did have some Burnout elements in it.

I found it very talky, was putting me to sleep.

I give it 5 stars because it did have a some what creepy feel like it used too.

and don't get me started on Claudia lol. I can't that character she does not fit.

I so miss the banter that they had in season one.

It was an awesome ep but I have one problem with it (and it's not that big a problem). Why did Myka mention in the Pilot that she was an only child and now she has a sister, named Tracy? This should be interesting to see how Tracy is explained. :lol: Other than that LOVED the ep. I'm with jel, really, who in their right mind would think that Joanne is fat. I did like the line from Myka about eating food. LOL

Loved how concerned and angry Pete was about the artifact hurting Myka. LOVED Artie trying to play match maker for Claudia.

I'm loving the stuff between Claudia and Artie, but I am a little disappointed to see Claudia's interest in Todd....but whatever...I'm sure it will be awesome. Myka looked great in the eppy! The fat comments in the episode made me think "lolwut".

Well anyone can seem "fat" when being compared to an anorexic model. How that is considered preferential by so many people will never be something I understand.

I'm still cracking up about all the Artie/Claudia moments, funny stuff!

I thought it was funny they kept calling her fat :lol: id love to be as fat as her :p

Good episode, loved the chemistry between Pete & Myka, and also Artie & Claudia, oh and Myka and her most girls stay home and play with Barbies line is funny, and the Claudia/Artie father/daughter moment was good im glad they did that

Didint expect to see Todd again i dont really care for the character TBH its just like oh his cute (and he his) Claudia should date him, just seemed like they tried to shove him in our faces oh well

But i still love This show :)

They missed a perfect opportunity to use The Excalibur as the main artifact and even Lizzy Borden's dress. I would have liked to have seen Pete/Myka retrieving these artifacts. But instead we got a five second sward fight. It's like they don't care about artifacts anymore just whatever juvenile thing they can come up with, comic books, movies/popcorn and fashion week. Jack kenny & the writer's must be reliving his second childhood with these predictable stories.

Glad someone else noticed that. I was totally turned around, when Myka said she had a sister! However it does makes sense that she does has a sister because in Resonance Myka was talking on the phone, with some other than her parents, who was trying to guilt her into going to her father party. I always thought it was an Aunt sense in pilot she say's she was an only child.

Back to yesterday episode. I loved Artie and Claudia so very awkward talk, it had me in giggles. I don't think Todd will last, but I like him anyways.

Cool ep i was thinking camera right after we see that Gunter guy

Yes very strange about the sister. In ep 1 and 2 Pete asks how many brothers she says "none just me" so maybe its an adopted sister or half or she just meant she doesn't have any brothers

First of all....What are you doing with Claudia Todd? :P ;)
Anywho, I don't think Claudia is the dating type, didn't think...and this proves it! However I hope they don't turn this into a full ship...I really do.

Like others I rather enjoyed the father/daughter moments...and the look on Claudia's face when Artie gave her the talk was priceless!

Myka sister thingy is rather confusing...maybe she lied? :S I don't know...though something in the back of my mind says that the sister was mentioned before...I don't know...

Angry Pete was new and different and welcomed. It's nice to see that he can be serious when the need arises. Overall it was a fun fun episode. However...I don't care much for the funky music they play whenever they dress up Myka in "sexy" outfits...which they tend to do more so than not...

The writer's decided to change history, much like they did with Claudia's age. Myka in the Pilot tells Pete she has no brothers and that it's "just me" when they're talking about why her dad calls his store "Bering & Sons".

I think it will be interesting to see who (if they even bother) they get to play her sister since she is supposedly prettier than Myka. In my world, ain't no one prettier than Joanne Kelly.

Okay, she was 10 in "Claudia" flashbacks...plus twelve that's 22...then they reverted that to 19 and she's about 19/20 years old right now right?

This one bored me too much to pay attention. ;)

I'll pay attention when they get back to the basic premise of the show,
you know, creepy artifacts & steampunk?

The steampunk is almost nonexistent this season, so far.

I dont care about Myka's tight dresses, fashion, movies or
whatever else these writer's are into or Claudia's love life!

Although I do like Todd and even Brenda lol. I wouldn't
mind seeing more of the townies either.

Oh well then you're out of luck I'm afraid...not much steampunk in Warehouse 13. Perhaps the "Wild Wild West"...that's the most steampunkish thing I can think off...and it's a movie...and old one.

A little thing like Claudia's age doesn't bother me. Its largely irrelevent. Now Myka saying she was an only child (I'm still skepetic on that) and changing to having a sister. That is annoying and glaring continuity error

Love this episode. Myka taking fencing lessons has me liking her character even more and eeing her in that purple dress almost had me drooling, she looked so hot. I really liked the new side of Pete. He's normally so happy-go-lucky, but he want totally Dark Side trying to save Myka.

Pretty good ep. I'm not really keen on fashion show story lines, I always seem to find them a bit boring. Myka is really growing on me this year, she actually does have a pretty good sense of humour. Love the Claudia/Artie scenes as always. Those two are a hoot :p And Pete going mad to save Myka, haven't seen him this mad before. Their friendship is really starting to develop along nicely now. And they do like winding each other up a bit like siblings usually do :p

Well I haven't seen anything to indicate that they are going with a ship between them and funnily enough I am totally loving it that way. Yeah that's weird coming from a shipper eh ;) But I am beginning to love the way their friendship is developing :D It took me a while to get used to Myka but I'm really starting to like her now and some of her quirkiness :D

pete seems like the type who would get upset over any of his friends dying. he's always quick to defend them
