X-Files Meets Ghostbuster (Nice Show),
This review is from: Warehouse 13 Season 1 (Amazon Instant Video)
I will not cover so much on individual plots. Basically, it's a nice show to watch to pass time. Fans of X-files can watch it to re-live the guy-lady agent partnership investigating paranormal occurrence. This time round, they are working under the cover of the Secret Service agents. What they are hunting are not aliens but artifacts own by people triggering the occurrence.
All the artifacts are kept in a magnetic ziplog bag to be de-sanitised (the ghostbuster part) and ultimately store in the warehouse. Watching this show, one can't help feeling that the writers are trying hard to re-live through the old memories of past achievements by great Americans. Of course it's a little peppered with other artifacts from other cultures and nations. But somehow, their fates are intimately tied to the United States. So its like a nostalgic ride of history.
On another positive note, it does raise the hopes to viewers that you may have one day specialized on something and become someone great. For that matter, some intimate items you possess may capture your energy and aspiration, becoming an artifact with special powers for potential Warehouse 13 storage.
Overall, I give it a 3 stars for being a entertaining nice show. In terms of originality for paranormal, I think the X-Files still tops.
