    They have traveled to other countries before, I just can't remember them doing something like that. The make up and costuming and what happened to the girls that were going to work that gig (tied up in a closet?). Just seemed out of place.

    Warehouse 13 on 8/27/12 - worst episode evah! Everything that happened was so cliche and predictable we were sitting there saying "Really? really? did they just really do that?".

    Two characters sum up my opinion of these two shows:

    Alphas' Gary - awesome to the nth degree + 6

    W13's Pete - moronic buffoon


    I'm not sure I'm liking the new girl on Alphas too much. I want to like her but she's too wisecrack-y. It's like the writers are trying too hard to make the show more appealing to more people this season.

    I keep forgetting that Gary was the British squint who knew too much trivia on Bones. Which is a tribute to his acting chops.

    The actor who plays Garry is British? I would never have guessed. Wow, he was on Mad Men too.

    Kat? Was she even on the 8/27 episode? It seemed like everyone made an appearance, including Danielle Rosen, Skylar, Stanton, Agent Clay, etc, except Kat. Or maybe I just missed her? I guess the producers wanted somebody younger on the team? They are making Rachel act pretty young.

    If you didn't skip _all_ the commercials... It was either during last night's Alphas or W13 they had a segment with the actors talking about the show, and the actor who plays Gary (Ryan Cartwright) was one of 'em, as did the actress who plays Rachel (Azita Ghanizada).

    Gary is my favorite on Alphas and the actor is fantastic.

    Pete is my favorite on W13 and if it wasn't for him, I might not be watching it. I watch it with a friend/neighbor and he sits there thru the episode making what he calls the "Myka" face. It's hysterical.

    The thing I like best about Gary is that occasionally you can almost catch the actor laughing at his own performance. It happened a few episodes ago when he was naked in the office, saying "Yes. I call it my fruit." The camera cut away just as he started smirking.

    I just watched "Endless Monsters." Somebody remind me, didn't H.G. and Mrs. Frederic die?

    I must have missed their comebacks.

    They "never died" when Artie reset the timeline, which is what this season is really all about.

    It was just a little out o fthe blue when H. G. just came up with the conclusion that Artie had used the Astrolabe. Also, he is just taking Data's (name?) word on the dire consequences of his telling someone about him using the astrolabe. His vision of Claudia killing hem didn't happen. Maybe Brother Data was lying.

    Yeah, but he's seen (hell, been in!) enough shows like this to know that you NEVER EVER TELL ANYBODY ANYTHING. Or the world will end. Or something.

    I've always hated that trope...that the default mode for knowing anything out of the ordinary is to keep it a secret, when in fact the default mode for most people would be to tell everybody they know, to stop people on the street and tell them, and in fact to sell the story to as many media outlets as they can get to pay for it. :D

    Okay, that sounds vaguely familiar. I must not have been paying close attention when that happened.

    Thanks.

    Does it count as telling someone if they figure it out on their own?

    I am way behind in my Alpha viewing . I just now watched "Alphaville." So far, I'm liking it better than Warehouse 13 this year.

    Will Skylar be coming back? The kid was great.

    Of course 'Brother Data' has Harriet Tubman's thimble; so he can appear to be anyone he wants.

    So if we assume Artie's vision is true then I'm thinking it's likely 'Data' doing "whatever he must" to stop Artie and undo the Astrolabe use.

    Oh, so you think that the "ORIGINAL" Claudia killing Artie (almost) was merely a red herring,and it will all happen again... (why do I have antoher show going through my mind right now?) :D

    As Church pointed out, it was true all right...what Artie saw in the vision happened; he just misinterpreted it.
