Warehouse 13 is Sci-Fi’s newest product that they’re giving a lot of advertising support to.
Sitting around watching the Sci-Fi (Soon to be SyFY) Channel I’ve noticed that the network is doing what they do best and that’s pummel the viewers with ads about the show repeatedly.
Warehouse 13 is about two Secret Service agents played by Eddie McClintock (Bones) and Joanne Kelly (Vanished, The Dresden Files) who get themselves transferred to a massive top-secret warehouse located in South Dakota.
The warehouse stores odd and strange artifacts that have been collected by the U.S. government. Think about it like that giant warehouse we saw at the end of the first Indiana Jones movie when they took the ark to a storage facility.
The warehouse is run by Artie, played by Saul Rubinek. He’s the one that sends the agents out to retrieve purported artifacts that have supernatural or paranormal properties.
Artie also has the agents assist him in controlling the warehouse. Eh?
Sci-Fi is pulling no punches. The pair of actors playing agents are relatively new to me but I’m seeing this ensemble as being led by the reputably entertaining Rubinek. Rubinek always plays quirky characters and plays them well.
The unique part about Warehouse 13 is the guest cast list that has a bevy of known actors passing through the sound stages of the show.
Joe Flanigan (Stargate Atlantis), Tricia Helfer, Michael Hogan and Mark Sheppard (All from Battlestar Galactica), James Naughton (Gossip Girls), Roger Rees (Cheers), Joe Morton, Erica Cerra and Niall Matter (All from Eureka) and Ivan Sergei (Crossing Jordan).
With Rubinek at the head of this cast, I envision quirky attempts at a funny show. It’s what I’ve seen him do but I’m not sure how that will pan out? Maybe it won’t be the tone of the show afterall.
What do you think of this show?
Warehouse 13 will premiere July 7 with a two-hour pilot at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
