Warehouse 13

On Tuesday, July 7th, the SciFi channel is making a change. The new ‘Syfy’ channel will be revealed during the premiere of what they hope is a flagship series, WAREHOUSE 13. The new motto for the channel? Imagine Greater.

And that’s just what WAREHOUSE 13 (TUESDAY, JULY 7th at 9:00 PM) is all about. Imagine a place where some of America’s greatest secrets are kept away, contained and stored for observation and safety. Meanwhile other, new and mysterious artifacts are being found every day, and it’s up to the team to ‘snag em, bag em and tag em’. The team is made up of two top Secret Agents, Pete Lattimer and Myka Bering, who, after saving the life of the President, are ‘promoted’ to Warehouse 13 to join the eccentric curator of the South Dakota based warehouse, Artie Nielson, played by Saul Rubinek (Frasier).

Pete and Myka, played by Eddie McClintock (“Bones”, “My Boy”s) and Joanne Kelly (“Dresden Files”, “Jeremiah”) are on opposite ends of the spectrum, personality wise with Pete as the intuitive bring it on type and Myka as the logical let’s think about it type. Compared already to BONES (Booth and Brennan) and X FILES (Scully and Mulder), the show’s success will depend greatly on whether these two first time leads can pull off chemistry and good storylines.

This week’s two hour pilot of what executive producer/show runner Jack Kenny calls “an action adventure proceduromedy” involves Myka and Pete saving the President, getting their new assignments to South Dakota, and becoming immersed in the “strange artifacts, mysterious relics, fantastical objects and supernatural souvenirs” of the Warehouse. Their new assignment is to travel around to retrieve and neutralized unidentified objects that could potentially cause harm, as well as keep the current artifacts in the warehouse safe.

Personally, I’m most excited for McClintock in a starring role. I loved him as sexy Agent Sully on Bones and as the perfect Hank on My Boys. I don’t know much about Joanne Kelly, but from the promos I’ve seen, she seems to play the uptight, but secretly vulnerable type pretty well. The artifacts seem very intriguing to me as well. Syfy seems to be pinning a lot of hopes on this series, and I for one hope it measures up! Below is a link to the official trailer, and be sure to check back on Wednesday for a review of the pilot!

We’ll be keeping close tabs on WAREHOUSE 13 this summer and I hope you’ll join in on the mystery every week with us.

    Interesting concept. Looks like the warehouse in the RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK and CRYSTAL SKULL Indiana Jones movies. Good casting as well. The initial episode was fun and the premise allows the writers a completely free rein with the writing, as anything can be put in the warehouse to spark a story. Loved the cheesey inventions and their histories that Artie (the curator) just loves to talk about. Let’s see where they go from here.
