So that was pretty fun, huh? 'Warehouse 13' returned to Syfy with one of its best and most entertaining episodes to date. Sure, this goofy show -- with its screwball comedy tone and wacky sci-fi premise - might lack the soul and finesse of 'Caprica' or the emotion of 'Stargate Universe,' but it mostly makes up for that with a cast of likable characters, an aw-shucks sense of wonder, and a charming underdog spirit.
But 'Warehouse 13' is certainly no underdog. It's one of Syfy's top performing shows. But in order to keep genre fans coming back for more, the show desperately needed to break out of its gimmicky procedural plot routine.
Thankfully, the tail end of season 1 offered more unconventional episodes that focused more on character bonds and further developed the show's crazy world -- a world where Harriet Tubman's thimble turns you into a shape shifter and the heroes carry retro-looking ray guns designed by Nikola Tesla.
The season 2 premiere continued on that track. The twisty globetrotting plot was a lot more compelling this time because the characters weren't simply working another case, they were working together to save each other's skin, and to stop a villain that had outwitted them almost to the point of surrender.
