Really cute that when the nun changed her tune a said she 'could' fly the priest and Myka left the room to converse. I suppose they wanted to get out of her flight path.

Unfortunately, I find I am liking this show---which usually means a death knell. If I thought it would help, I'd stop watching....but I'm so weak.

Considering this is SyFy, and considering their typical budgets, I think this one may actually have some staying power if the numbers hold up.

Numbers are good so far, haven't seen this last episodes numbers, but I think the 2nd episode topped 3 million, which is good by Syfy standards, I think Eureka is holding over or around 2 million even on Friday nights. I think we're in good shape for the numbers, if they came back for ep 2, I figure they came back for 3 also.

I agree, Peter. This show can work with limited special effects, and if the chemistry between the characters holds up, there's no reason for it not to do well. I don't think it's going to take too long for them to find the "voices" for their characters.

I'm liking the show so far, it's sort of like a combination of that TV movie series "The Librarian" and "Bones" with a few other things sprinkled in. Not very creative, but still a lot of fun to watch.

See now, there you go getting my hopes up

Actually, that is good news.

For me, I have to actually like characters, and sometimes that takes a little time. Rarely, a show just grabs me from the beginning (Middleman did that). I already like the interaction between the three leads, so that's a good sign.

I thought Reaper did a great job with a limited SFX budget...and I think WH13 could do the same.

Middleman and Sarah Connor were my two biggest disappointments on shows not getting another season. I've always kept an eye out for some Middleman reruns/replays, but so far no go. I didn't have HD until a few episodes in on Middleman and when I got it, they had a lot of audio dropouts. I wish ABC Family would just run one good marathon for the Middleman, so I could archive it. I don't think the DVD is even Blu-ray

I don't really know if this is good news or bad- but my 70 year old Mom likes this show too. We watched it "on demand" when I visited last week.

(Of course, she doesn't have a dvr, and doesn't know how to find it in the channel guide or on demand to be able to continue watching it.... guess I will have to visit more often?)

She likes the fellow who stays at the wharehouse..... she always was a sucker for younger men.....

Enjoyable episode. Seems that the hacker storyline might become prominent soon. Hope it will not be a season long arc. Hope to see more of CCH Pounder in the coming weeks.

Good point. I don't think it will be season long, though. Speaking of which, how many episodes comprise a "season" on Syfy??

Well, to answer my own question Google turned up only 8 episodes. I wonder how much steam it can build by the end of its first season.

Next week episode should be interesting as they introduce a new character to the show.

SPOILER ALERT!!

Well, my guess was correct after the 'quote' revealed the spoiler. Wonder what they'll do with Myka and Pete's old boss?

Great show, I'm pleasantly surprised. Hopefully Syfy (ugh..) will produce more good show to add to their anemic schedule.

Warehouse 13 started about 3 minutes before 9:00 pm tonight, that's ridiculous, ending late is bad enough, but to start the show 3 minutes or so early is definitely not a good move. So, if you're recording you might want to record the later showing(it may start early too, who knows)...

Maybe you're just 3 mins in the future?

When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

Luckily, I have a Durational Spectrometer. I thought tonight's episode was the best one so far. I liked Claudia.

Agreed. Good episode. And solid acting from a young actor. She could be a scene stealer.

It did? Grr... I have to check the DVR. I hate when they do that. Thanks for the heads up.

I think it did, I just happened to be on the channel when it started and noticed that the time was about 8:57, the episode was about 43:34 tonight, that's about a minute longer than normal. I can't believe they did that, but they sure did.

Tonights show was a good one. Not sure about the 3 minute time shift (Mrs. Frederic, perhaps?) but my DVR recorded the whole show, start to finish.

My scheduled WH13 recording started and stopped as usual. No early start, no extra time added. I was not moving very fast as I watched, so relativity probably did not come into play.

My recording started on the hour and nothing was missed so I am not sure what to make of this?
