Warehouse 13


I didn’t want to review this based only on the pilot, but having seen the first episode, I have to admit that I’m torn. It’s as if a team of talentless dorks found an incredible series pitch–complete with rough episode outlines–and ran with it as best they could.

The show is a weird mix of graceful, interesting moments and embarrassments like the male lead saying “Boobies?” or a slow-mo shot of a sexy woman entering the room to the tune of “Oh, yeah,” by Yello. There’s genuine pleasure there, but you have to endure a lot of pain to get to is.
