    +1 Its become parody of itself. Lots of winking at the camera to telegraph their knowing something has changed, don't take it too seriously anymore 'cause they certainly aren't.

    Stupid things occurring right and left... The "King", (or anyone else for that matter) didn't notice the Jester materializing and dematerializing right before their eyes.

    People can now suddenly instantaneously transport to wherever the plot requires them to be... Arte calls Claudia at the Inn from the warehouse then cut scene and she and Clair are at the warehouse. Micha should have torn the place apart while they were in transport but she conveniently reins in her wrath to give them time to arrive.

    Rules concerning the artifacts are totally out the window... Simply putting Claire back into a coma causes the artifact effect to magically transfer from Micha back into her.

    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I expected more of an arc for the final 6 episodes. It feels like just another season of the show.

    Is there a single TV show that doesn't suffer from that? It's a necessary limitation of TV - how would have the show been served if Myka and sat stewing on the driver over (not that it's ever depicted as that long a drive anyway) and flips the cat, only there's nothing to suggest she didn't just have a puncture blow out?

    I know it's a nit I'm picking with that one but it's one the higher story/production values of the past made easier to overlook.

    Mykia was in full blown spin cycle, glowing eyes, levitating and with swirly smoke things. The exact same state her sister was in when she killed her parents and yet Mykia simply maintains that state for however long it took Claudia and Clair to arrive without imposing a lick of serious damage to the warehouse or to Artie. It stinks.

    Couldn't agree more. I never get the feeling that anyone is ever in any real peril like I used to at the shows start.

    ...and all we get is more of the same blah we got the last season.

    The "wonders" about the WH and artifacts seem to just be there to to be there.

    It's sad really, I so enjoyed all these characters.

    Yeah, they do seem to be wasting the very very little time they have left. While Monday's episode seems like it might possibly be fun, at the same time, it's the 3rd to the last episode... and we're doing this....

    Sigh.

    Anyone know what's on tap for tomorrow? The Media Guide descriptions says...

    Episode: "Savage Seduction. Kelly tries to save her grandmother, who is trapped in a soap opera."

    Here we go again, eh?

    Based on the commercials, the entire team gets trapped in a telemundo style spanish soap opera.

    Is it bad that I didn't recognize that character's name? I know - it feels like season two was a long time ago.

    My mother used to wear real pearls. But I guess for a TV show, they usually make fake jewelry.

    Okay, I'll admit it.

    I laughed!

    I laughed at both the A & B storylines, although didn't we see that frat boy initiation thing once in another season?

    Oh Kelly, did you let the cat out of the bag?

    That was fun as hell!

    I loved that Claudia actually liked having two Steves to hang out with and didn't seem worried in the least.

    I think regular Steve was a little jealous of Claudia's favoring flamboyant Steve. :p

    I also loved how BOTH Pete and Myka exclaimed "I'm speaking Spanish???" :lol:

    Again, this was like two episodes crammed into one, but both stories were hilarious. The Telenovela cracked me up-- they even did the theme music in Spanish. :rommie: Steve and his "evil sister" were great. When he threw the candle, I thought that Claudia was going to get split up, too, which would have been nice, but oh well.

    And Harvey Korman's cufflinks allowed them to stay out of character. :rommie:

    I usually try to keep my baser instincts to myself, but Myka in that maid's outfit???

    Holy crap.

    :techman:

    Nice ad for the Prius...

    :rolleyes:

    Subtle as a brick...

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

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

    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.

    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. :rommie:

    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.

    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.
