Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

Myka in a maid's uniform and Claudia putting her girls to work-- good episode all around.

Warehouse 13 has never been very good with their product placements. I hope they have alternate scenes on the DVDs.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

Not quite as bad as Eureka with that... what was it, deoderant? They'd have cases of it stacked in the background, and bottles of it under test in labs. It was bad enough in first-run, but hitting those scenes on a DVD rewatch make you want to assassinate a marketing executive.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

Both shows have done really awkward car hawking-- very weird and off putting (although, oddly, the kind of conversation that might happen in real life). But the award for over-the-top product placement is still the episode of Bones where they went to see Avatar. That was so extreme that I actually liked it.

Oh yeah, Eureka was pushing the Subaru Impreza when Jo got one.

Bones also stopped the story dead in its tracks once to demonstrate and explain how Brennan's car parallel parks by itself. The sequence featured prominent closeups of the maker's logo on the grill.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

I thought it was funny on the show Intelligence. They went out of their way to blackout the emblems on all the Fords they used on the show. I kept wondering what Ford did to piss them off. These days you don't see that kind of product label scrubbing on shows anymore.

Maybe the checks didn't clear from Ford.

And don't forget the time they explained that Bones' publisher had given her a new car because her latest novel had hit the bestseller list. Uh-huh. That happens in publishing all the time.

I got a fruit basket once . . . .

ALIAS and HEROES did some awkward product placement for cars, too. And let's not forget the times SMALLVILLE plugged specific brands of chewing gum and contact lenses.

Greg, I'm wondering: when you wrote your Warehouse 13 novel, did you include the obligatory product placement?

I think that would be hysterical to have in a novel....

My memory is fuzzy, but I think I might have mentioned Myka's fondness for red licorice . . ..

Didn't Artie offer Myka and someone red licorice on this past episode or the previous one?

Finished the last episode ever.

Well that's just a giant crock of endless wonder.

Sometimes the way this series handles its A/B plots seem as out-of-place as the product placement.
