Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

It's not a fair criticism of Supernatural at all, as there's no question that there's a massive network of hunters out there. The Winchesters themselves just focus on the midwest of the United States (though they've gone beyond that range numerous times).

I disagree with this entirely, as there have actually been an astounding number of almost-apocalypses specifically in NA. Unless we're arguing that such near-armageddons happen with a frequency to exactly match the "massive network of hunters" (which seems highly implausible to me), it's clear that, for whatever reason, NA has become demon/monster/angel basecamp, at least until the series and its spin-offs are off air.

As is the case with WH13, most Treks, Eureka, Sleepy Hollow and almost every comic (among others), epic events in the larger world do tend to be focused around the heroes. This is a narrative device as old as Homer's Iliad. My attempted explanation was just trying to put an in-universe spin on it.

FWIW, I agree that they've been to multiple cities and to both coasts, my comment was mostly addressing Mr. Adventures' follow-on to the WH13 discussion concerning NA as a whole.

(We can address this further in the SN thread, if you wish)

All they needed to do was transfer the TK power into someone who's already comatose and will be dead within the hour.
I don't think they had a way to do that before Valda invented that eyepiece by using Paracelsus' research.
Claudia accidentally transferred it to Myka not 2 episodes ago. They knew it could be done. They just needed a different recipient.
Well, that's a good point. I guess the problem they would come up against then would be consent.

And good question... any agents on other continents? Like has there been anything from Africa? Probably the one low point of Warehouse 13 -- lack of diversity on a week-to-week basis.
Africa, the Middle East, Australia, South America-- there must be groups (not necessarily Warehouses, I suppose) that deal with artifacts in all these places. It would have been nice if some mention of that had been made.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

I don't think there are Warehouses concurrently on other continents. I think there is just the "one" and that one moves from place to place throughout the centuries.

The official syfy.com histories of the other 12 Warehouses starting in Macedonia with Alexander the Great 336 years BC.

http://www.syfy.com/warehouse13/history

There may not have been diversity in the races of agents, but there was diversity in the Regents with the head Regent (Adwin Kosan) being Pakistani, the Caretaker (Mrs Frederic) and first manager of the B&B/organizer of the warehouse (Leena) were black, the 2nd B&B manager/Keeper of the Warehouse was Asian (Abigail Cho) and the one serious nonMyka love interest (Kelly Hernandez) in 5 years for Pete Lattimer was a Latina.

As for the 5 agents themselves, you certainly have diversity in sex, sexual orientation and background.

From straight laced uptight secret service agent to reformed alcoholic vibe sensing jokester secret service agent to teenaged previously insane asylum residing wunderkind to gay, straight laced lie sensing ATF agent to 19th century grief stricken bisexual formerly bronzed steam punked Brit.

Don't forget curmudgeonly former spy and smuggler with a "very special bag".

Before Warehouse and Supernatural, most apocalypses seemed to happen in Sunnydale, CA.

There are dozens of near-miss Apocalypses being thwarted all over the Earth on any given day. If we, the public, knew about them, we would go mad. Mad, I say!

Good finale. It worked.

Still didn't need the Myka/Pete love plot.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

I really enjoyed the finale.

Artie's rant at the warehouse brought tears to my eyes.

I'm fine with the Myka/Pete resolution. I'm a sucker for a happy ending.

I am satisfied.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

A quiet ending.

I liked how they worked HG Wells in so many times, with her Steam Punk past and her Warehouse 13 known & new adventures.

I even liked the brief glances we saw with past guest stars both major and minor and how there were so many things we never knew about our fav agents, like Artie's son. Makes me wonder what else we never knew.

It was nice to see confirmation that the Warehouse doesn't move for decades to come and that Claudia overcame her aversion (?) to becoming Caretaker.

I wonder how many kids Pete & Myka end up with and if HG comes by every Christmas.

Fav line of the night?

"Okay, no more Mr. Nice Gay."

I'm going to miss these silly goofs.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

Sweet finale, but I wish it had been longer. I wanted to know more about Mrs. Fredrick, and some of what happened to her. I was glad to see her memory of Lena; that was nice. I really liked getting to see a little bit of Artie's life, but I still wish we could've found out what happened to him.

*sigh* Oh well.

I haven't seen it yet, so it's a relief to read all the nice comments.

So when does the Veronica Mars-style Kickstarter campaign start?
