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.

  1. Kinda almost sounds like The Librarian.

  2. I never caught THE LIBRARIAN Andy. Was that the movie with Noah Wyle from ER?

  3. Seems more like “Friday the 13th: The Series” to me.

    Here’s the synopsis from IMDb… “An old antique dealer made a pact with the Devil to sell cursed antiques. When he dies, his store is inherited by his niece Micki and her cousin Ryan. With the help of Jack Marshak, they fight to retrieve the antiques from the people who bought them to stop them from causing harm.”

  4. Looking forward to Joe Flanigan’s guest spot.

  5. sounds like X-Files lite, if they offer the same quality scripts as Eureka, I’ll give it a chance.

  6. “The Librarian” is what I was thinking of too. They weren’t bad movies if you don’t look for realism and big budget styling. I enjoyed them.

    Hopefully this is like Fringe and The Librarian put together with more emphasis on the Fringe.

  7. @Sean
    I thought exactly the same thing: Friday the 13th: The Series. This may not be a bad thing, with the government involved. We saw how The X-Files became a cult favorite; maybe this will too.

  8. @John “Kahless”

    I agree with everything you said except X-Files being a “cult” favorite. I believe it was much more than that.

  9. Out of the two agents, the guy used to be on Crumbs with Jane Curtin what’s his name from Knots Landing Fred Savage. It’s about the mom who got out of the psych facility. Speaking of, Maggie Lawson on there too. FS played a gay guy.
