Eureka & Warehouse 13 Xmas Specials Discussion

Thought I would put out a thread in case anyone wanted to talk about the Eureka and Warehouse 13 Christmas specials on tonight (Dec 7th).

Enjoy!

Santa invades eureka. LOL Looks like Carter's telling of the story still takes place in the altered timeline since Alison's son is still normal.

I'm a big fan of both shows, so I'm really looking forward to these.

Eureka was so-so, but fun anyways.

The W13 xmas show was cute and harmless, and presumably outside of any show canon, unless we assume it takes place sometime before the s2 cliffhanger.

I'm assuming it simply takes place before the cliffhanger. They've been foreshadowing the thing with Artie's dad for a long time now. It's part of the ongoing story of the characters' lives . . . .

Saw the W13 special; will have to check out Eureka tomorrow.

The W13 one was OK, but got pretty cheesy at the end. Still, hubby and I both enjoyed it, despite the stupid bit there at the mall.

Re: Eureka & Warehouse 13 Xmas Specials Discussion

I thought the Eureka one was pretty fun, not neccissarily one of their best episodes but still not bad. I didn't see all of the W13 one, but I feel pretty much the same about what I saw of it .

I'm biased, of course, but I enjoyed the WH13 holiday ep. Haven't checked out the EUREKA one yet.

That part was confusing to me, since it was probably their first Christmas in the new timeline. So Carter made it up, except there was an additional flashback after he was done telling the story, so it really happened, but the kids didn't seem to know jack about it, so what's up with that...

It's just a show, I should really just relax. I loved Dr. Spaceman as Santa, especially.

They were both pretty schmatzy in places, but I expect this from Xmas episodes. I think I liked the W13 one better, but then, I like that show better overall.

Re: Eureka & Warehouse 13 Xmas Specials Discussion

Didn't see Warehouse 13, but thought Eureka's Christmas episode was very much in line with the series...lots of fun for me (in between my family interrupting).

Loved the little stuff, like the altered opening.

Maaaan, i miss Eureka. When does it comeback? Didn't they do a MID-season cliffhanger, this time?

There was a Hannukiah in the background, and at the end when Claudia starts to say Grace it's the Hebrew blessing. But in general you're right, I wish they at least acknowledged Hannukah or the fact that Artie doesn't celebrate Christmas. Especially with the episode airing during Hannukah.

The Eureka ep was pretty good, harmless fun as usual. The one thing I couldn't get over is Dr. Spaceman from 30 Rock. I just can't think of him as anything else, even on SNL.
