America’s Best-Kept Secret Agents—'Warehouse 13'

It's fairly well known that basic cable channels such as AMC, USA, TNT and FX produce some of the best original programming on television these days. Because they are cable networks, they have looser standards regarding content and language, which allows them to broadcast edgier material. While I love edgy, controversial TV shows as much as (and maybe more than) the next guy, one of my favorite new programs is a bit of a throwback. Warehouse 13, Tuesdays at 9 p.m. (8 p.m. Cst) on Syfy, manages to delight and entertain using nothing more cutting-edge than first-rate writing, excellent performances and solid production values. It warms my jaded little heart to know that's still possible.

Warehouse 13 has been called a combination of Moonlighting and The X-Files, and I suppose that’s a pretty good description, though it's not as smart-alecky as the former or as self-serious as the latter — thank god.

Warehouse 13 - “The Lost Room” The Series?

Remember the super cool mini-series “The Lost Room”? Joe Miller (Peter Krause) went around trying to round up missing items that had the ability to gift the person that possessed them with supernatural abilities? Well, a lot of fans wanted that to go to series and it never happened. On the other hand, we can look forward to Warehouse 13. Recently announced as a series, Warehouse 13 was developed by Rockne O’Bannon (Farscape) and Jane Espenson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and D. Brent Mote.
