This is, sadly, the final season for a very quirky and unique series on Syfy.
It’s a really difficult show to explain. It’s just, fun. Maybe a little schlocky and predictable at times, but I find it mostly light hearted and enjoyable.
It’s not meant to be taken seriously.
If I had to make a comparison, I’d say it’s like a mix of ‘Friday the 13th (the series)’ meets ‘The X-Files’ meets the Scooby Gang. And, yes, with some Steampunk thrown in.
It has had some wonderful guest stars…SPOILER ALERT like in last night’s episode, besides all the cast, it had the return of Anthony Stewart Head, Mark Sheppard (whose voice I adore, and he’s cute, rather like a Pug <meant endearingly), René Auberjonois and Lindsay Wagner.
This episode, obviously, carries on from where it left off at last season’s finale-
SERIOUS SPOILER ALERT!
It opens where Paracelsus (Anthony Stewart Head) has barricaded himself along with Claudia (the new Caretaker, thus part of the Warehouse itself) inside the Warehouse, with Artie and Jinks trying to get through said barrier without much success. It then switches to Pete and Myka (the attempt at humour concerning cancer and her ‘lady parts’ was a little much), they arrive at the scene, Myka having solved the problem of entering the warehouse. Paracelsus has control over Claudia’s body making her take up weapons against Pete and Jinks.
Paracelsus rigs up a time travel machine using various artifacts (Tesla coil +) and, of course, changes the history of the Warehouse. Jinks bicycling for all he’s worth to keep the time tunnel/portal open, Pete and Myka team up with Lisa da Vinci (yep, the granddaughter of you know who), Artie is captured….oh, just go watch it already!!!
I really don’t want to say too much, and ruin it for those who have not watched it yet and dislike such blabbermouths….like someone standing up in the theater at the end of ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’ and screaming ‘SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE!’
No, I did not do that, even though tempted. 🙂
