    Is anyone still watching? I usually,reluctantly watch the show because I'm interested in the artifacts that they find and the relationships to historical events. But, I mostly don't care for the juvenile antics of the two leads.

    I have to admit, this ep was different and I actually enjoyed it. It's almost as if TPB are letting the cast mature a little. And, maybe, they should split up the team more often. I hated to see them kill off the lovely Ashley Williams, though. (Bastids).

    In any case, that was a great attention-grabbing line and reveal at the very end of the episode. (Right up there with "No, Luke, I am your father.") :)

    So who's the guy in the wheelchair? It must be somebody we know, or they wouldn't work so hard to hide his face. Somebody, perhaps, who's in a wheelchair because of Our Heroes?

    The voice sounded awfully familiar, but I just couldn't place it. I was hoping someone else had an idea of who it was. Blofeld?! :D

    Mrs. Fredricks ceratinly isn't afraid of getting her hands dirty. Jinks was within character for drawing his gun, but you know that it would mean his being fired, and if predictions are anything, eventually becoming an agent for the bad guys.

    The bad guys have little tolerance for failure, and certainly aren't against using artifacts for their aims. Soooo, what is their probem with the warehouse regents/agents?

    Janeway is Pete's mom?

    I got kind of an Anthony Michael Hall vibe from the silhouette of wheelchair guy.

    ...and sure enough, his official site says he'll be in upcoming episodes.

    Spoiler nazis must really hate me for posting like this ;)

    When I saw the look on her face, I said "mom" right before she turned around.

    I think that was the fastest reveal and cut to credits I've ever seen.

    So why did the spray paint suddenly spray happy blue instead of fiery red? Because it knew it was painting over the red?

    I think the paint was reacting to the mental attitude of the sprayer.

    What does throwing stuff in the static-free bags accomplish? I thought it neutralized the artifacts, but in this case clearly it didn't...

    Well, it was a peace symbol. :)

    One could argue that the paint itself was also part of the artifact, and not yet bagged.

    No one has ever stated it was permanent. It makes the objects safe to carry back to the warehouse. Just like real-life static bags, they only work while the object is in the bag.

    They cut to commercial rather abruptly a couple of times in the last half also.

    Jinks obviously didn't read the section in Warehouse 13 New Employee Handbook that said Mrs. Frederic can do whatever she damn well pleases.

    What's up with Myka's wig? It looks too full or something.

    I don't think it's a wig. They're just straightening her thick, curly hair.

    Heh, when she introduced herself as "Jane" I was wondering if that was a veiled Star Trek reference or not.

    Whatever happened, she needs to switch back with a quickness.

    Ugh, fell asleep at the end. I'll have to find a synopsis somewhere to see what happened.

    I think the show is okay, but needs to tone down the cheesiness more than a notch.

    HOWEVER, that video game episode they did was one of the worst things I have ever seen on TV. Just awful.

    Well, they certainly got their money's worth on the "posterize" effect in that one!

    Was it that she said that her husband was a firefighter that tipped your off? (Knowing that Pete had mentioned his father being one a long time ago)
