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.
