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.

The one that really throws me is the fact that Rick from the Walking Dead is a Brit. I always thought his southern drawl was a little odd but I just thought he talked funny. Then I saw him on Strike Back and thought "Wtf!".

I'm finding myself bored with both shows this season. I'm finding Alphas especially bad. I remember liking that show quite a bit last summer, but this season seems so disorganized. I've got a couple episodes of both shows on my DVR and I've been thinking about trashing them.

I officially trashed both shows last night. I had 3 episodes of both and deleted them. Also dumped the season passes.

I also didn't like that show Continuum this year. Maybe I'm just not into TV Sci Fi anymore.

I'm liking alphas better than ever this year. I used to watch W13 on Monday night's but now I prefer to watch Alphas the night it airs. I still like w13 though.

Quoting myself cause it didn't ring true. Turns out it wasn't.

I was tempted to deep six these shows but then I realized they don't last very long anyways. Maybe 3-4 more episodes?

At least there turned out to be a good reason for why Brother Data was being such an irrational dick.

Alphas - "Life After Death"
Warehouse 13 - "We All Fall Down"

This thread is spoilers to the current episode, no?

Alphas - Gary was awesome with the baby. Cameron is getting on my nerves. I'm glad to see Rachel happy and wasn't her father great?

WH13 - Good fall finale with a nice cliffhanger.

Yes, great scenes...although as a non-parent, I was amused by the implication that all those parents with crying babies are just doing it wrong...all they need to do is look it up on the Internet.

I guess only one more episode left this fall for Alphas. Does anyone know when it will resume next year?

It's the season finalé, not just a mid-season finalé. So if it's renewed, which I don't think has been announced yet, it will probably be about a year minus 13 weeks from now...

Claudia is played by Allison Scagliotti

I hope it's renewed then but I see the ratings are lower this season.

On another note I watched Apollo 18 the other day and noticed that the actor that plays Cameron was one of the main characters. I had not noticed him in anything else I watched before.
