Warehouse 13 (season 5)

release year: 2014
genre: sci-fi/action/drama/comedy
viewing setting: home DVD, 7/12-13/14

synopsis: This short final season deals with the cliffhanger from the end of season four, throws out a couple of unusual episodes, then wraps things up.

impressions: This was the fifth and final season, and seemed to be all about wrapping up loose ends. The same nagging issue as in past seasons was still present here: sometimes, the problems encountered by the agents are a result of their own actions, meddling, and sometimes even just touching things they shouldn’t. Episode briefs:
  • (1) The insanity of last season’s cliffhanger is settled
  • (2) Pete and Myka encounter a couple of old co-workers who now have a secret
  • (3) Renaissance fair madness, while Claudia ries to get her sister back
  • (4) The team gets absorbed into a Spanish telenovella
  • (5) A lost evildoer begins moving the warehouse to China
  • (6) After hearing that the warehouse will be moving, each team member revisits memories from his or her past

  • 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. In this season, the two finally realize the feelings they have for each other. Saul Rubinek is Artie, their boss who's been doing this for forty years and is weary, yet doesn’t want to lose the warehouse. Allison Scagliotti is Claudia, the young hacker punk who's now evolved into someone who genuinely cares about the Warehouse and her co-workers.

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