So, watched the premiere of Warehouse 13 tonight, totally forgetting that Tricia Helfer's appearance is next week and only figured that out midway through the premiere itself, but I think it's pretty good so far. At least it's entertaining enough to be drawn in and the characters aren't annoying, and the lead guy is pretty funny and kind of awesome. Also? It was created and written by Jane Espenson, so that's a major plus. It has that good quality kind of entertainment like you would find in, say, Eureka with plenty of mystery. I was engaged with their assignment so, definitely has much potential and worth a shot if anyone is willing to test it out. I'm going to be seeing the next episode, that's for sure (not just because of Tricia, although that is something to be amped out watching anyway).
Other BSG alumni will be featured on the show too, along with other guest stars which, um, yay. They showed previews for Stargate Universe, which looks between wanting to be serious but will probably be for the lulz, and for Caprica, which I already have and seen and know it will be premiering next year and all but, seriously, I want moar new footage beyond the pilot, plz, kthx.
However, I do have one thing to mention....
I HATE THE NEW NETWORK NAME "SYFY", O HALE NONONONO! THAT IS JUST CORNY AND SILLY AND LAME. I'M STILL CALLING IT THE SCIFI CHANNEL I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE SAYS, "SYFY" IS JUST, UGH. NO. WHOEVER THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA WAS ON THE BADCRACK. I MISS THE OLD SCIFI LOGO AND THE MUSIC AND ALL THAT (though they are keeping the cool promos, that's awesome) BUT OTHERWISE NO!
