Warehouse 13: What X-files would have been if written by R.L. Stine

For those of you that dont know who R.L. Stine is, he is the "Stephen King of children's literature" ( While making a scifi tv series you have to be very careful not to cross the fine line into cheesy special effects and lame story writing.( the last templar ) but while this story did have some rather cheesy elements like the neutralizing potion, bloodstone, possessed hair comb, Houdini's wallet and the football. It was entertaining and I will watch more episodes.

I agree it was cheesy, but that can be good if that's what you're going for. Deliberately cheesy. I just finished the second and it was as good as the first, and even introduced a few more long lasting concepts into the series.

Personally I didn't associate it with X-Files at all. As made obvious by the title I think it is more an attempt to remake Friday the 13th (the TV series, not the movie). Instead of a storeroom full of cursed objects they have a whole warehouse (hmm... bigger budget). They've dumbed it down for what they think modern audiences want to see. Personally, I liked the spookiness of the old series and find this version as predictable as a computer generated script on autopilot. But considering the shows that stay on the air while shows that exhibit originally and great writing get canceled who can blame them. It does well in its attempt to be if not great, at least not irritating.
