AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Warehouse 13 pulls influences from all of the typical sci-fi formulas, unable to inject enough excitement or originality to truly pay homage to the classics.

Tv Season Info

The first series of this sci-fi comedy-drama follows Secret Service agents Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) and Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock) as they track down mysterious objects at the behest of Warehouse caretaker Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek), who oversees a top-secret government facility in South Dakota. However, this is anything but an ordinary warehouse: It houses strange and powerful artifacts that can take on a life of their own. The fourth episode introduces the character of Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti), who breaches the Warehouse's security and kidnaps Artie. When Artie's boss, Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder), hears about Claudia, she insists that Artie do something about her since Claudia knows too much. The series ends with a storyline centered on James MacPherson (Roger Rees), a former Warehouse agent who was Artie's partner.

Critic Reviews for Warehouse 13: Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (16)

Covers a lot of ground, and could result in an over-reaching mess, but the well-defined characters should help keep the story focused.

There's a fine line between wink-wink clever and desperately cheesy.

July 7, 2009 | Full Review…

None of it's all that original - the warehouse looks like the one from the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Lattimer and Bering are like goofier versions of Mulder and Scully.

Not too much new here. But there's nothing wrong with taking the old and doing it well.

July 7, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It definitely has potential. The actors are capable, the characters are well drawn, the show runners have a decent track record, and hints of interesting larger stories are dropped throughout the first two episodes.

If that premise doesn't get you interested in watching (or rewatching) Warehouse 13 than we don't know what will.

Audience Reviews for Warehouse 13: Season 1

½

Season 1 was unpromising, we were introduced to the archetypes of crime drama characters: Myka Bering the intelligent and skillful female lead, Pete Lattimer the comic relief male lead with a cookie fetish and Artie Nielsen the eccentric manager of the Warehouse 13. (Basically a copycat of Friday the 13th the series) Each episode was predictable with badly written dialogues, non of the characters were likable until the introduction of Claudia Donovan who revived the show by giving it some energy. But Don't let season 1 get you down, because it started to developed the characters better in season 2.
