Warehouse 13: Season 1 –

Warehouse 13
* (NR: 2009) * Creators: Jane Espenson, D. Brent Mote. Starring: Eddie McClintock … Pete Lattimer; Joanne Kelly … Myka Bering; Saul Rubinek … Artie Nielsen; Genelle Williams … Leena; Allison Scagliotti … Claudia Donovan; and many others. *

It’s X-files Mulder and Scully meets a spin-off of where the Lost Ark of the Covenant disappeared off to at the end of “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. This popular Syfy network television series is a fantasy created by Jack Kenny and David Simkins as a dramatic comedy that reminds one of Raiders of the Lost Ark, the X-files, Moonlighting, and Friday the 13th: The Series. So far the series is up to 3 seasons with popularity that might keep it going. Its about two U.S. Secret Service agents, Myka Bering and Peter Lattimer who become re-assigned to the government’s secret “Warehouse 13” where un-natural artifacts with dangerous properties are locked up where they cannot do damage, in a barren warehosue in the middle of South Dakota. Initially they feel they are being punished for some assignments that involved foul-ups, but rather being “rewarded” for their great skills. The Warehouse is under the premise that is was established in 1914 by Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and M.C. Escher that is a continuation of various Warehouses throughout the world that houses artifacts of this kind – the first being Warehouse One operated by Alexander the Great, Warehouse 2 as the Library at Alexandria, Warehouse 12 in Great Britain – always being moved into the possession of whichever country was the super power during that age. All of the artifacts housed in the warehouses possess magical, supernatural, or scientific powers that are dangerous, and are connected to some historical or mythological figure, each imbued with something of their former owner. Most excellent series. Rated: 5 stars out of 5.

Warehouse 13: Season 1: Episode 1

Warehouse 13: Season 1 ~ Episode 1: The Pilot

Director: Jace Alexander. Writers: D. Brent Mote & Jane Espenson. Starring:
Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek, and many others. Original Air Date: 7 July 2009.

Its a blended science fiction television series of the “what if” and “after the fact” of the U.S. super secret warehouse that houses magical items like the “Ark of the Covenant” we saw being so neatly placed at the end of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” combined with much of the comical elements of Agents Mulder and Scully of the “X-files”. It all begins with two secret service agents who after saving the president’s life from an assassination attempt get recruited by a super secret warehouse in the middle of the South Dakota desert housing supernatural artifacts to become custodians and curators of said occult. They are now assigned to retrieve any lost objects and investigate reports of any new ones. Their first assignment, which they fail badly at, is to protect a rare Aztec stone which gets stolen. Their next assignment is to travel to Iowa where they are to investigate the beatings of Emily Krueger. Turns out her law school boyfriend Cody Thomas was beating her while under the influence of a ancient Italian strega bewitchment by a jewel he possessed of Lucrecia Borgia. It has a great spin. Rating: 4 stars out of 5.

Chronicle (PG-13: 2012)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1706593/
Director: Josh Trank. Starring: Dane DeHaan; Alex Russell; Michael B. Jordan; Michael Kelly; Ashley Hinshaw; and many more.
It’s the atypical “mutant” skill flick about three teens who develop super powers from a meteorite. Clash “Smallville”, “The Craft” with “Push” and you’ve got “Chronicle”. The three kids: A popular jock, a yuppie, and a loner all gain telekenetic powers while exploring a cave outside a rave. They learn to harness the powers until it takes from them all that they have. Good effects, great flick, but two redundant on every other superpower movie. Its a bit overdone. Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
