Warehouse 13: Season 4

[From now on, abbreviated W13. Just because I’m lazy.]

I’m not a big fan of this show.  I like it, but apparently not enough to watch it live or soon after it airs. For example, I finally watched the Sep 17th episode, “Second Chance” last night.  (Only 5 days late.)  And yet, I tend to enjoy most of the episodes (to varying degrees).  With “Second Chance” I actually enjoyed the B Team (Claudia and Steve) more than Pete and Myka.  Probably because their “investigation” was much more personal and poignant.  And Laura Innes (from ER) played Steve’s mother.  Good casting!

What I like about this year:

  • Brent Spiner! Without being a caricature!  Warehouse 13’s best villain since Roger Rees (whom I still miss).
  • Joanne Kelly’s curly hair. I found her straight locks distracting last year.
  • Genelle Williams (Leena) seems to be getting more screen time.

What I’m not crazy about:

  • The return of H.G. Wells.  Probably because I don’t like Jaime Murray.  I first saw her (and her breasts) on Dexter. I disliked the character so much, I’ve probably transferred it to the actor. Plus, I just don’t trust H.G.
  • Pete’s become a buffoon. Ok, he always was one, but now it seems we have to be reminded of it several times per episode.  Plus, I don’t find him sexy enough to warrant all the shirtless scenes this year.
  • I hated Claudia’s obsession with bringing Steve back to life so much that I had to fast-forward through the metronome scene. However, the pay off in “Second Chance” was quite rewarding (even if Aaron Ashmore can’t cry real tears).  But I’m a sap like that.

I’m wondering if the Claudia/Steve pairing is upstaging Pete and Myka.  I’m not feeling the hint of attraction between Pet and Myka that I did in the first 2 seasons.    Since Claudia and Steve aren’t a romantic couple, could the show survive two platonic couples?   Well, the Law & Order franchise thrived with it, so it might work.
