Whadya' say, folks, should I continue linking to the older reviews? Should I only do it when there's nothing new on? Opinions?

(Prime Time Repeat) EPISODE REVIEWS: Warehouse 13: "Elements" (Episode 5) AND: Stargate Universe: "Air" (Episode 1)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Syfy continues to fill otherwise-dead air with prime-time repeats of last year's shows. Maybe this is because they're trying to bring everyone up to speed before the new season starts, or maybe it's just because Caprica is crashing and burning, and they don't know what to do. Either way, since it's been a super-slow year thus far, we're covering 'em.

I don't know why I didn't think of this last week, nor the week before, but (I'm a drinker...) rather than irritating the crap of our fine, fine regular readers by re-posting old reviews as though they were new, I'll just *LINK* you to the reviews where they sit now.

Duh! Is my face red, or what? (Well, I've been slamming home the beers for an hour or so, so, of course my face would be red anyways, but rest assured: were I not intoxicated, my face would be red out of embarasment.)

We'll be reviewing the new episode of "Caprica" later on tonight for the seven or eight people who are still watching it. Be sure to check back in for that!

(Prime Time Repeat) EPISODE REVIEW: Warehouse 13: “Claudia” (Episode 4)

Republibot 3.0's picture

PLEASE NOTE: Syfy is re-running the first season of Warehouse 13 as a way of simultaneously building up for the new season and and admitting it's got nothing in the way of programming, so, as such, we're re-running this review for those of you who may not have seen it, or the episode previously. We're not always going to do this, but in this case it seemed warranted.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: That while I feel like we probably should continue to cover this show in its second year, I definitely feel like I don't wanna' be the guy who does it. I've got waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much stuff on my plate, so if *YOU* would like to take a stab at it and reap the (non-financial) rewards of having hundreds of total strangers hang on your every word, and then call you a jerk afterwards, we're probably willing to let you try. Drop me a line at Three@Republibot.com and we'll talk.

Is it too early to start calling this show a Joss Whedon Knockoff?

PLAY BY PLAY

We start out with Artie in a limbo-lit set, shot in high contrast black and white, talking to Mrs. Fredericks. He wakes from this dream in his warehouse office to find Mika and Pete phoning in a genuinely funny frantic report from one of their assignments (“No more zoos! Monkeys spit! Did you know monkeys spit?” “You still have some monkey phlegm in your hair.” “It isn’t phlegm”). Then “Claudia,” the hacker from the previous three episodes kidnaps Artie.

EPISODE REVIEW: Warehouse 13: “MacPherson” (Episode 12, Season Finale)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Our season comes to an end that’s no less uneven in it’s finale than it was in the events leading up to it. The episode is definitely better than last week, and again perhaps guardedly above the average for this show, but still far from their peak, and farther still from what they’re capable of.

EPISODE REVIEW: Warehouse 13: “Nevermore” (Episode 11)

Republibot 3.0's picture

As the first season of this show slouches towards its finale, we’re treated with a wildly uneven episode that, on one hand, is among the best they’ve done, and on the other hand is every bit as vapid as an episode of Tales of the Darkside. I’m going to say that this was an above-average episode, and yet it’s slightly higher bar is almost completely wasted in simply keeping the story from disintegrating in to incoherence. Also, the scene-to-scene production qualities were quite literally all the hell over the place.

EPISODE REVIEW: Warehouse 13: “Breakdown” (Episode 10)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Warehouse 13 pulls out a win tonight, and no one is happier than me. Though they’ve only had one truly awful episode thus far (The Lewis Caroll’s Mirror one), I have to admit I’ve never been fully invested in this show, and the last three or four episodes have begun to feel like drudgery to watch. No, that’s too harsh. It wasn’t drudgery, never that bad, but it’s something I found it hard to look forward to. Thus I’m really glad they were able to get a really solid hit tonight, even if they haven’t really knocked one out of the park yet.

EPISODE REVIEW: Warehouse 13: “Regrets”(Episode 9)

Republibot 3.0's picture

So good news, if you’re a fan of this show: Neorandomizer has informed me that it is now officially the highest rated show in Syfy/Sci-Fi channel history. If you’re a fan of this show, or a fan of the anonymous suits that pull the strings behind the scenes (Hooray anonymous suits!), or if you’re just one of the many, many people who hate Bonnie Hammer, that means the show will almost certainly be coming back for a second season.

EPISODE REVIEW: Warehouse 13: “Duped” (Episode 8)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Well it seems as if Warehouse 13’s days of inconsistent storytelling are definitely coming to a middle. After last week’s well-above-average episode with a consistently-told, generally solid and engaging storytelling hampered only occasionally by random bouts of Counselor Troi-ing, we find ourselves this week right back to a slightly-better than half-assed story, halfassedly told. That said, it’s still one in the plus column, it’s not a loss, but the average is much lower than it should have been.
