anyone watching warehouse 13 or alphas

anyone else watching these shows? i was a little disappointed in warehouse 13, the effects were pretty rough and it seemed to me like the actors have lost interest in the show. alphas came out of the gate much stronger and i'm looking forward to where the show goes.

We watched the first season of WH13 and really enjoyed it, but we lost interest by the time the 2nd season came out.

We're watching WH13. I still enjoy it. It's the kind of light SciFi that interests me. Yeah, it's hokey and unrealistic, but I find it mindless fun. Don't watch Alphas.

The premiere of Alphas was definitely better than that of W13, but I think W13 suffered from having to reset what happened at the end of last season. The previews for the upcoming season of W13 look great.

Per a discussion last year, W13 and Alphas seem to occur in the same storyverse. Two people on W13 have Alpha abilities unrelated to artifacts - Pete's danger sense and Claudia's boyfriend's lie detection.

I like them both, but the season 3 episode of WH13 was a letdown. And I get that it was a reset, but it just seemed tired to me as well.

I want them to bring Steve back.

We enjoy both.

Neither season premiere really grabbed me. I think it was because the previous seasons ended with huge events and by now the impact of them has worn off. I should've watched the last few episodes of each ahead of the premieres, I guess.

I watch and enjoy them both. I like certain actors on one and certain ones on the other.

I watched about a season of W13, and for the most part enjoyed it. Then the show started to get too silly for me, and I dropped it.

I think I watched two Alphas, and that was enough for me. I didn't like the writing at all. Not my cup of tea, as they say.

Are these both SyFy shows? I don't watch a single SF channel show. I've tried almost every one that has premiered, but for some reason, I have yet to find one I like enough to keep the SP. I love sci-fi, but find that SyFy's shows just aren't for me. They're either too silly, too stupid, poorly written, poorly cast or acted... yada.

Shows I tried and dropped:
Alphas
Being Human
Caprica
Eureka
Haven
Lost Girl
Merlin
Warehouse 13

Pretty impressive list of losers (IMHO, as I know lots of y'all love these)

Wow. I may have to try Caprica and Haven. They are only two I've not seen and I do Love all the others. I guess our tastes are opposite.

As for Being Human. I've watched the UK one. I have not seen the American one yet. But I do plan on watching it.

I agree. WH13 is pretty fun so I'm still tuning in. Haven't seen the newest episode yet, though.

The only time WH13 does not put me to sleep is when they sex up Mica.

I've been watching both shows since the beginning. I enjoyed both Premieres this past Monday.
This is the first year I've watched more TV shows during the Summer Season than during the Fall/Winter/Spring Season.
I'm even watching more shows on SyFy now than I did a few years ago. I've also been enjoying Lost Girl and of course Eureka just ended it's run.

I thought the Warehouse premiere was weak, but the sound was distorted and AWFUL. What the heck happened there? The end last year was pretty good, but the reset had a whole "why did I waste my emotion back then if it was merely goiong to be undone" kind of vibe to it.

I always have watched Alphas, but I never really got over the blatent Plagiarism of the basic concept. The specific characters and situations are unique, but the underlying premise is certainly a rip-off. That kinda ruins it for me.

I forgot about the audio issue. I thought it might have been a local issue. The voices from the center channel were messed up.

Yeah, you need to download it via "other means," or at least sign up for a proxy service that could make it appear your ISP is in Canada.

I watched the first four episodes last night. Although the YouTube channel is only up to episode four in the US.

I have a season plus of W13 stacked up, so I guess I lost interest in it.

I do love Alphas though, and am looking forward to watching the season premiere this weekend.

The youtube channel called ContinuumTheSeries has nothing to do with the TV show called 'Continuum' which is from Canada.

This is the trailer:

I knew something wasn't right. I printed out the episode list and it didn't match what I was watching. I was tired and it was late.
But this looks like it's much better.
But I need to find where I can watch it from.

I guess I went to the right site initially but when the video was blocked, since I'm not in Canada, I went looking for a place to watch it from I found the other show called Continuum.

They've had a crossover character too now, so WH13, Alphas, and Eureka are in the same story-verse.

This seems to have links to ways to view them online: http://one-tvshows.eu/tv/continuum/

The links there from divxstage.eu, at least for the first episode, just worked for me (ignore that they say they don't work).

I'm still watching both shows. The new season of Warehouse 13 started out kind of slow but I'm hoping it picks up soon.

I still watch W13 and the sound was definitely messed up even in plain stereo.

I loved it when

That was a great moment. I thought Artie's response was equally entertaining, and fitting.

I tried W13, but I don't remember why I didn't stick with it. Alphas had slipped under my radar. I didn't know of it until after the fact. I think I saw one ep, then it went on hiatus.
