Warehouse 13 (season 3)

release year: 2011
genre: sci-fi/action/drama/comedy
viewing setting: home DVD, 4/29/13 - 5/6/13

synopsis: The agents' lives become even more hectic and dangerous, as they deal with enemies old and new, plus another big bad plot.

impressions: This was the third season, and mostly dealt with another unknown enemy who's 1) stealing artifacts, and 2) wants to destroy the Warehouse. My sole gripe is that while quirky, fun people make for more entertaining plotlines, something this important would have to require employees with a more serious view of life, and more lethal dispositions when it comes to dealing with enemies. Honestly, given what's inside the Warehouse, there should be a small army of guards there at all times, whose sole purpose is to silence witnesses and repel attackers. Episode briefs:
  • (1) A new agent joins the team
  • (2) The agents investigate several people who are losing their memories
  • (3) While half the team figures out why people in a small town are turning into clay, Pete and Myka have to figure out why they woke up in bed together
  • (4) Pete's ex-wife is getting married again, but accidentally takes an artifact that threatens to cause trouble
  • (5) Something is destroying random people and things
  • (6) Guest-star Fargo becomes trapped in a Warehouse-inspired video game and must be rescued
  • (7) Behind-the-scenes plots thicken
  • (8) Several Regents and agents are in danger within a building that's gradually disintegrating
  • (9) Pete looks into the past to figure out who's behind events in the present
  • (10) Zombies...!...?
  • (11) Major people start dying as the identity and motives and plan of the antagonist are revealed
  • (12) More death and destruction

  • acting: Joanne Kelly is Myka, who's all business and can fight. Eddie McClintock is Pete, who goofs off and doesn't always take things seriously (but is slowly becoming more mature.) Saul Rubinek is Artie, their boss who's been doing this for forty years and who has some past secrets of his own. Genelle Williams is Leena, who can read auras. Allison Scagliotti is Claudia, the young hacker punk who proves useful.

    final word: Interesting mix of the Friday the 13th and X-Files series with a bit of Raiders of the Lost Ark thrown in.
