In my review of Syfy’s Warehouse 13 premiere, I said the advertising for the show did not do the show justice, and it had an excellent method of story telling to develop the story and the characters in a mature and compelling fashion.

This week, the second episode not only held up the quality of writing that the premiere did, but may have actually improved on the premiere.

The continued character development wasn’t overboard and they engaged the story of the week well while a new and mysterious issue presented itself in the background of it all. (What did happen to Artie?)

Not to mention that Artie had a really cool camera and that football made a return appearance.  Don’t they have the coolest Steampunk tech?

For me, the show will keep me coming back and I am betting I can say the same for at least a few million cable viewers. Warehouse 13 dominated the ratings for its cable primetime Tuesday slot, bringing in 3.4 million viewers.

In fact, for the 9 p.m. hour, Syfy drew more viewers than ABC which was airing Better Off Ted, and on cable, WH13 beat out The Cleaner, Hawthorne, Saving Grace and Rescue Me.

That’s some serious competition and Syfy took them out with their new show – The first show they chose to premiere along with their new network brand name.

In case you don’t know, Warehouse 13 follows two Secret Service agents who find themselves transferred to a massive, top-secret storage facility in South Dakota which houses strange artifacts, mysterious relics, fantastical objects and supernatural souvenirs that have been collected by the U.S. government.

The Warehouse’s caretaker, Artie (Saul Rubinek), charges Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne 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.

Warehouse 13 airs Tuesdays @ 9pm on Syfy.

  1. Great … I guess Michael Hinman will be asking for money again.


  2. I knew this review was coming, Bruce, and well done. This show is defanitely on my DvR. I wouldn’t classify all the objects as paranormal though; maybe paranormal/unusual science. The recording used sound in an unsual way and the camera….who the heck knows. :-)

  3. They keep pulling up interesting items, that’s for sure.

  4. The Secret Service has an interesting history .
    It would be nice if the search for one of the artifacts were somehow connected to that history.
    Just a thought.
    I will continue to watch anyway.
    Cool show.

  5. Indeed GARY.

    The Secret Service was created back in 1865 for the Treasury Dept to pursue counterfeiting rings.

    Ah, I remember that day… oops, I guess I can’t give those kinds of things away.

  6. I’m a little late posting on this one, but… WOW! I’ll admit that the first episode wasn’t one that knocked it out of the ballpark for me. I found the opening a little slower, and I was crazy about some of the direction when it came to providing backstory for the main characters. The second half of the first episode made up for a lot of the first half’s sins, though.

    As for episode two… DAMN! I was shocked at how much I loved it. They’re already hitting their stride with this show, and that says a lot for something that isn’t coming out of an already established franchise. The tidbits that hint at a season/series-long storyline/mystery… Oh, I’m definitely on board with that and what to see what happens with it.

    This show has a very good cast, with well-developed characters and setting. I’m looking forward to getting “lost in the warehouse” a lot more.

  7. I really think that the ensemble is coming together. I’ve always been a fan of Rubinek’s and the principle investigators are interesting too. We have a lot to learn about Mrs. Frederick, past investigators for the Warehouse and much more in the mythology.

  8. I loved this epi. It was funny and I didn’t hate the new guy like I thought I would. Of course, thank the stars for Myka returning :)
    Yes, I did catch the $25,000 Pyramid reference at the beginning.
