Apparently the agents of Warehouse 13 are never going to get a break. After an explosive opening (literally) "Warehouse 13 Season Two" charges through the season with even more weird artifacts, bizarre problems caused by them, and a clever new character joining the cast. It has some wobbles early on, but is still lots of fun.
After Artie (Saul Rubinek) is unceremoniously resurrected, the agents find that MacPherson has escaped the Warehouse -- and he took a newly-debronzed H.G. Wells along for the ride. While Archie races to Europe to find Claudia (Allison Scagliotti), Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) try to figure out what MacPherson want from H.G. Wells... but they haven't reckoned with their new enemy's skills.
And they have a lot of other artifacts to investigate -- a vigilante superhero, mysterious holograms, supermodels aging into crones, a computer that takes over the Warehouse, spontaneous combustion on a wrestling team, Pete's delusions about a conspiracy among the Regents, body-swapping, time-traveling to the 1960s, and a mysterious Russian enemy out to kill Artie. And finally, an ancient Warehouse is unexpectedly reactivated, leading to what may be Pete and Myka's most dangerous mission yet.
"Warehouse 13's" second season is a bit wobbly in the first half, since a few of the episodes are a bit silly (Claudia and Leena having a "victim-off"!). We've still got weird artifacts all over the place, including Mata Hari's stockings, Harriet Tubman's thimble, a steampunk vest, the sword Excalibur and stones from the Tower of Babel. Ah, it's a fun concept.
The stories here are a fun blend of action (shootout in a wrecking yard!), sci-fi and comedy ("You, sir, have been growing back your appendix in an attempt to get Vanessa to visit the warehouse...that's so romantic!"), and some mildly surprising twists. But there are some hints that something sinister is on the horizon, and that MacPherson was just the tip of the iceberg.
McClintock and Kelly make a fun team -- Pete is still too goofy, but McClintock gets to show his wilder, darker side when Pete briefly goes in sane "Around The Bend," while Kelly gets to prance around in fluffy slippers with a stuffed animal. Scagliotti remains the punky little sister figure, but sadly Genelle Williams is as wooden as ever... and she loses ALL her eerie mystique.
But Rubinek is still the center of the story as the grumpy, crusty curmudgeon with a heart of gold (especially when we find out why he helped the Soviet-era Russians). And Jaime Murray pops up quite a few times as the devious, silk-sleek H.G. Wells -- a nice addition to the cast.
"Warehouse 13 Season Two" suffers from some early stumbles, but quickly regains its footing for an awesome round of magical, mysterious episodes.Read more ›
The stories are so interesting . The acting is really good. I liked the bonus material about how the sets were made and the artifacts. I will get the whole series eventually. Too bad it had to be cancelled.
I borrowed these on a whim from some friends and really enjoyed the series! So much so, that I've gone out and bought the first 3 seasons! It's kind of a sci-fi mix of supernatural and crime-fighting but with wit and humour that reminded me of the good 'ole days of watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" on tv! Very entertaining!
