    This show was pretty cool at first. Looked kinda hokey though. I kinda expected more to be honest

    In this week's episode of Warehouse 13 - "Endless Wonder" - Danielle Nicolet is the actress who played Deb. All I can say is Dayum!, I want one of them for Christmas.

    I guess that Artie just decided to throw away the "don't tell anyone or it will be very bad" advice.

    Is the instruction given to HG, that she take the astrolabe and get lost, telling no one where she is going, simply a way of more-or-less writing her out of the show? I can take her or leave her, but my wife likes her a lot.

    No, I'm sure she'll be back.

    The character and the actress are apparently "popular" enough that, a while back, there was talk of developing an H.G. Wells-centered spinoff, but I haven't heard anything about that recently.

    I THOUGHT she was a very popular character, but that instruction by Mrs. Fredrick made me feel like they were writing her out of the show. That's why I asked. I too expect her to be back.

    From the look on her face, I wondered if they're planning to return her to villain status...

    For a moment I thought that HG was really Data using the thimble and that he now had the astrolabe.

    But if I understand correctly, stealing the astrolabe does Data no good, only Artie can undo what he did. At best, all Data can do is use it for another 24-hour reboot.

    Yeah, there was an episode last season that was mostly flashback with HG in London, working for Warehouse 12. I always assumed that episode was meant to be a backdoor-pilot for an HG spinoff, which I assumed would be called "Warehouse 12".

    I guess nothing came of that.

    My only problem right now is why would anyone want to turn things back. The world was ending. What could be worse than that?

    Yeah... I don't get why Artie doesn't just say, "Hey! Idiot! How about I tell you why I did it before you decide."

    Artie has, including "I killed you". Brother Adrian doesn't care.

    All Brother Adrian wants is each day restored to what was supposed to happen without the astrolabe.

    I don't think Artie has made clear the whole "end of the world" thing.

    Something I learned from a behind the scenes piece on Alphas - Ryan Cartwright, the actor who plays Gary is British. Did not see that coming.

    I was blown away hearing him speak in the commercial, too. Rewound a couple of times.

    He played a completely different type of character on Bones - and had a British accent.

    I never really watched Bones, so he was unknown to me until Alphas. Now, I'd kinda like to check out some of his other work for comparison.

    They mentioned it in passing but I wonder if it will ultimately turn out the "Evil" that Artie unleashed by using the Astrolabe, is Brother Adrian and his quest to ruin Artie. The classic "Self Fulfilling Prophecy".

    I generally hate W13's Pete but at least he wears a University of Pennsylvania t-shirt every once in a while.

    i was behind someone in a car and they were doing the hand movements gary does..so they must have the same condition as him or maybe they were watching an ep in the car..bit disconcerting to watch though..i worried how can they drive a car with moving like that with both hands every minute or so

    living in hell?

    next thing you know they will say house was a brit too! i jsut assume all actors are brits and that everything, especially space shows , are filmed in vancouver
