I have mixed feelings about this latest episode of Warehouse 13. On one hand, there were times where it was just silly to the point of bordering on ridiculous. On the other hand, it was still fairly entertaining and some of the story elements were executed rather well. Warehouse 13 has never been a show that took itself all that seriously, and it owes a lot of its unique charm to its ability to go beyond the mere fantastical and into the realm of the absurd. Sometimes that formula doesn't work out so well, but I think this time, for the most part, the end result is pretty entertaining.
There are a lot of different things going on in this episode, continuing a trend of more complex stories in this sophomore season of the series. We've got Leena, Mrs. Frederic, and regent Benedict Valda (Mark Sheppard) in one side story that involves exploring Leena's post-possession headaches. Then we have our main cast trying to find out the source of some very odd random occurences in the town of Univille near where the warehouse is located. During the investigation, our characters go on a few tangents; Pete and Dr. Hernandez have some tiffs while Claudia is getting her geek love connection on with a young fellow named Todd at the local hardware store (which just happens to be run by a video pirate). It all culminates in a pair of artifacts with powers and pasts that are pretty ludicrous, but still fun. And let's not forget the team's cover as IRS agents, and the resulting reactions from the folks in the town. There's some pretty clever writing here.
