I can has Agent Wells now?  
Just saw the second preview for Haven S2. Score! I just wish it wasn't so far away....

And for all you Warehouse 13 fans, there was an announcement recently that the character of H.G. Wells is going to get her own spin-off. This has me excited, but also a little hesitant.

Spin-offs are generally a hit-or-miss, and this network isn't known for keeping spin-offs for very long anymore anyway. Also, when this was first announced I found myself wondering how in the world they were gonna do this, because quite frankly I would like to see more H.G. Wells in WH13, particularly after what happened last season and her relationship with Myka and how that was gonna be resolved. However, thinking it over, I think they're gonna go directly from the beginning of her story, retelling it from her eyes which hopefully would lead us to seeing another reappearance on WH13. Judging from the description we're gonna see her involvement with Warehouse 12, her experiments which will include lots and lots of steampunk, which has me excited. My wish for this spin-off, however, is to see more evidence of her flexible sexuality, given how it was revealed in canon that she's bisexual. More of this, please. ^_^

I just need my feel-good shows back. After all the angsting and anger and defeat that has arisen from fandom lately, I just need my happy summer shows to bring me back my sanity.

but oh man, i am so waiting for both my shows to come back already. seriously. they're such feel-good shows, because they're not afraid of making fun of themselves (especially WH13!) and idek anymore, i just. i just love 'em both to bits. gotta rewatch haven before it starts airing again, though. ♥ i should rewatch WH13 as well, but i just don't think i'll have the time. BUT HOPEFULLY.

and i'd watch the spin-off. idk, i do have my doubts and i don't think it'll be as good as WH13, but come on. it's hg wells. how can you possibly say no to her? she's far too awesomesauce.

I don't see why she wouldn't be returning to to show. She is, after all, a main character. Believe me, despite what happened in the season finale I think the entire WH13 fandom would have exploded had there been news that Joanne Kelly wasn't returning.

Oh my gosh I'm missing WH13 so hard right now. I just need it back on my tv.

I'm still not sure how I feel about the H.G. spinoff. On one hand I like it, because I loved that character, and after seeing Jaime Murray in Dexter I realize I really just like watching her, but on the other hand...I hate spinoffs. I would prefer if she just stayed on Warehouse. But maybe they'll surprise us and make something really worthwhile. She is a pretty awesome character after all, with lots of potential, so hopefully they utilize that.

I just marathoned both seasons and I'm just all hyped up for the third season. \O/ I MISSED IT SO MUCH COME BACK TO ME SHOW!

Yeah. While I don't hate spin-offs, since I think they can generally do very well, it depends on how it's handled and received and with already an established fanbase from WH13 it can go either way. I'm hoping it turns out well, because I love her character and would like to have more elaboration on her background and how she ended up the way she did, and hopefully we'll see her again WH13.

Haven and Warehouse 13 are such guilty pleasures of mine, and now I have to search out the Haven preview.

I know what you mean about spin-offs though, so easy to get wrong. I do kind of love the idea of sexy steampunk adventures though. We need some more of that on TV.

I love them both sfm, after all the drama that's been happening in fandom I feel like I need something to make me all giddy and happy. COME BACK TO ME, SHOWS!

We just need more female-centric shows on TV in general, honestly. So part of me is already excited to see Jaime Murray on her own show being awesome. Also, due to my disappointment from how the network handled Caprica I'm apprehensive about how they are to deal with this one, but we'll see.
