Warehouse 13: "There's Always a Downside" Review

Sometimes a TV show tries so hard to implement its ideas that it kind of loses itself in the process. This week's installment takes a 3-part format, and each story would have been fantastic individually. But when they're mashed together into one episode, each plot arc gets less time than might have been needed to really make the ideas and guest stars shine. It started off great, with Artie doing his usual cantankerous warehouse boss shtick and sending his team of young do-gooders off to grab, bag, and tag more artifacts. An added bonus is that Artie mixes up the usual team chemistry this time so Myka and Jinks pair off while Claudia and Pete get to have some rare partner time. It all seemed like a good idea, at first. Read More... //www.ign.com/articles/2012/08/14/warehouse-13-theres-always-a-downside-review  

On Warehouse 13, The Many Flavors of Ruthlessness [Tv Recap]

Last night's Warehouse 13 gave us two stories of overachievers who pay a high price for excellence. And meanwhile, both Artie and Steve let the cat out of the bag about their huge secrets. And finally, we learned just how far Brother Data is willing to go for retribution.

Warehouse 13 Review: What's the Downside?

When the topic is artifacts, we can all agree that there it comes as no surprise that " There's Always a Downside ."  The question then becomes: is the downside worth the upside? In Artie’s case, the downside of using The Astrolabe is that he has released an evil, or at least Brother Adrian seems to be wrought with stories of how it had released evil. But, given that the alternative is that the entire world loses hope and we all head to hell in a hand-basket, I have to agree with Artie that risking some evil in the world is better than no world at all. For Steve, Claudia using the metronome to bring him back means that she feels what he feels. At first it seemed to be instead of him, but watching him gasp for breath as Ethan tried to absorb his pain points to her sharing his pain, not just taking it entirely. Myka is right, though, there has to be another way, or at a minimum another artifact that could help make sure Claudia doesn’t feel his pain. Somehow, I think that way equates to disaster – using an artifact to offset an artifact leads to needing to use another artifact and another and another... //www.tvfanatic.com/2012/08/warehouse-13-review-whats-the-downside/
