Season 2 starts with a strong plot line, lots of action, and quite a bit of comic relief. The main plot remains the same, ie the team trying to locate an artifact that is playing havoc with reality...or, well, killing people. In season 2 there are finally unifying story lines that connect the episodes, leaving us wanting to see the next piece of the puzzle. The writers have also done a brilliant job of developing the characters and making them feel like a really fun dysfunctional family.
While I have trouble seeing Agent Lattimer as a secrete service agent his character adds fun, silliness, and life to the show. I'm glad that they didn't pair agents Lattimer and Bering romantically. Their chemistry works as friends but would probably fizzle as a romance. It also gives the show more room to grow if they aren't romantically attached. The writers do a good job playing with subplots as the agents try to maintain romantic relationships outside of work. I especially like when Agent Lattimer was spending the day in bed with his new girlfriend and a crisis had him not only scurrying into work but locking her out of the room 1/2 dressed...did I mention their cover story is that they are IRS agents, what type of life or death crisis's can an IRS agent have.
The addition of Jamie Murray playing HG Wells has made the show much more interesting and fun. Her character softens the edges of Agent Bering; plus it's really fifty because we don't know if she is good, evil, or something in-between.Read more ›
Remember last season when Myka Bering was introduced as this driven, tightly wound Secret Service operative? Maybe the biggest discrepancy - this season versus the last - is that Myka has loosened up so much that she's practically a clone of Pete in terms of kooky lightheartedness. Not that I'm complaining. I actually like this shift in character, and there are moments enough in which she reverts back to her intense persona. Conversely, carefree Pete Lattimer gets a crack at romantic stability (and, dammit, it's not with Myka).
WAREHOUSE 13's hook is irresistible for fans of sci-fi & fantasy, and it's a wide umbrella of a hook that lends potential for the plot to go pretty much anywhere. It's a neat mash-up of THE X-FILES and Indiana Jones, THE LOST ROOM mini-series and TNT's The Librarian movies, and someone somewhere even threw in a MOONLIGHTING reference.Read more ›
The artifacts this season: underwear (?!) that transform a normal guy into a dangerous super-hero; a device that makes TV characters come to life; an artifact that ages supermodels into elderly hags; a deadly energy drink that's killing wrestlers; HG Wells time machine; a former warehouse in Egypt; and a deadly trident in the uber-villain's clutches. The cast tries gamely but are sometimes hampered by the oiverly contrived subplots. Saul Rubinek and Allison Scagliotti play off each other well; Jaime Murray (once DEXTER's foe) has a nice accent but making her HG Wells isn't totally plausible; Paula Garces as Pete's love interest bombs; CCH Pounder is like a live cartoon character in a monotonous role; Genelle Williams as Lila is basically superfluous. That leaves Eddie McCormack and Joanne Kelly as Pete and Myka who banter playfully and rescue each other from various artifacts. I got tired of this after the first couple of episodes and found them harder and harder to believe.
Yes, this is fantasy and the premise of some of the artifacts intriguing. But the FX are fairly pedestrian and the erratic pacing made me feel uninvolved.
Will Myka return for Season 3? By now, Season 3 has started, but I'll just wait for next year's DVD which I hope will be better.

Great series. Love the relationships between the characters and the steampunk feel of the warehouse. A "warm and fuzzy" supernatural thriller.Published 2 months ago by Philip R. Olenick
