Warehouse 13 (2009)
eureka! but not really...
A play on words, as they say. Wh13 was an initial hit. The likeness of which cannot be compared to a masterpiece like eureka in the overall aspect. The show was originally spectacular and gave premise to such amazing prospects. When your boss is communist, however, your future is destined for failure.
As the final seasons, second season onward, came to fruition, the show was doomed. That's not even due to the fact that it classified itself as the sister show to eureka. The writing became ghastly and the acting became painful to watch. The show deserves credit though. It had a fantastic outline, it just never fulfilled it's expectations thanks partially to the idiotic side struggles the writers felt necessary to tie in.
If you liked the first few episodes, just go watch eureka and you will be much happier. I was overseas when eureka premiered thus I started wh13 from the beginning. I was far happier watching reruns of eureka as opposed to the garbage wh13 constantly had to offer.
This will save you heartache...
Wh13 was canceled just as eureka was due to it's premise. Myka and Pete kiss and Claudia becomes caretaker of the warehouse. In essence, thats all we get after five seasons. Boring if you ask me.
one of the biggest wastes of syfy's history
This may well be one of the greatest shows that has ever graced TV goers pallets. Some of the very best casting and writing out of any TV show to date has gone into this series. For example, take into account the way the writers wrapped up the series with very little notice. Warehouse 13, it's closest competitor, went out on a sad note. But somehow eureka kept minds wondering about the future. Even will Wheaton has hinted at a comeback, even as a gag.
If you're a die hard wh13 addict, such as I, this show will not disappoint. As prior military, you may have to give it an episode or two, but this show is simply amazing. I picked up during a hiatus of wh13 seasons and was slow to catch on, but I was quickly impressed. Collin Ferguson is one of the most diverse actors ever and will draw your attention, and quick. Enough said that he's doing Maytag commercials now. The highlight of his career was most certainly eureka and he deserves much more. I even stayed tune for the entire lake placid 3 just because of him!
Zoe carter turned from one of the most annoying characters ever to one of the most beloved and addored. These are all just examples, mind you, of some of the best writed characters in television history. They even brought back Wesley crusher, aka, will Wheaton! Jaime paglia is a genius, enough said. And his accolades can all be attributed to eureka.
If you're a fan of any star trek franchise, watch eureka. In some aspects, it's essentially the alpha of star trek. Not to be confused with the horrible show, alphas. Not to mention, if you're a wh13 fan, you will settle in nicely and end up being more of a fan of eureka. Partially due to the fantastically hideous end wh13 had in the last few seasons.
Paired with the amazing holiday specials anyone in the family can enjoy, plus the ongoing gags fitted into nearly every episode, eureka has something every member of your family will enjoy. My wife is opposed to sci-fi more the a prisoner to the holocaust but this show snagged her up each episode and she couldn't wait til the next.
Of course syfy (or sci-fi as I remember it as a kid) is way to busy with shows like makeup this or costume that. They've lost touch with their inner child thanks to the comcasts buy out. They've cancelled a show that's worth a million sharkquakes or whatever they have in store next.
I've been watching you since you're original science fiction 3000; why would you torture me with the cancellation of this amazing show?!
HORRIBLE!!! Way to really ruin a franchise!
Look, I'm going to be brutally honest, this is the worst movie I have ever seen. I have been a huge fan of the games since Hit-man: Codename 47 came out for the PC years ago. I don't have any idea how this piece of crap made it past the guys at IOI. When the Hit-man series came out, it had a bit less of a story line than the Trix rabbit but it evolved into a great story, and backstory. Here's my problem...
Movie: Agent 47 is played by Timothy Olyphant who is a horrible actor to begin with. He was actually so bad of an actor, in fact, that the director didn't even try to have him use a British accent. Games: Agent 47 is modelled from and even uses the voice of David Bateson who would have been better for the role in the movie anyway.
Movie: Agent 47, and all of his so called "brothers" were orphans trained by "The Organization" or whatever unoriginal name they called it. Games: Agent 47 and all of his brothers were clones who looked exctly alike (which means no black agents for example, sorry). They were cloned and trained by Dr. Ort-Meyer, some of them escaped, and even fewer went to work for the Agency or the ICA.
Movie: Agent 47 is seen shaving in the bathroom. Games: AGENT 47 DOESN'T NEED TO SHAVE! He was cloned without hair so as not to leave evidence at crime scenes.
Movie: Agent 47 is almost seduced by Nika but eventually develops a soft spot for her. Games: Agent 47 would have first killed her dead rather than to let her whore about on top of him.
Movie: Agent 47 pulls out katana swords from his back pockets that he had supposedly been carrying around with him the entire movie. Games: Agent 47's only weapons are two Hardballers, his fiber wire, and his syringes...never have I seen him conceal ninja swords just in case he runs into a group of people who want to kill him on a train.
I just hate everything about this movie. It could have been great! The games are far too dark for the way they took this movie. They ruined games that had an excellent storyline. Finally, I always said that Michael Fassbender would have been a much better 47 and Paul Verhoeven would have been a much better director.
