Warehouse 13 Looking Good for Renewal

... In the no-duh news department, Syfy is going to renew its number-one show Warehouse 13 for a fourth season (formal announcement coming soon). The slick mix of sci-fi, comedy, romance, and steampunk has been a major hit for the network since it debuted a few years back. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Fans of USA Network's Suits and Necessary Roughness should rest easy. Well easy enough for someone who can live with the fact that they like Suits or Necessary Roughness. Just kidding! It was someone else who said those shows suck, not me! I know he looked like me and sounded just like me, but trust me, it wasn't me. Oh, on to the news part. The network's co-presidents said they'll both probably get renewed. [EW]

... **You are now humming the Game of Thrones theme song in your head** HBO's Game of Thrones has made another casting decision, bringing on British actress Gemma Whelan to play Theon Greyjoy's sister. In the books, she's named Asha, but producers think that name is too similar to wildling woman Osha, so they're changing her name to Yara, which is way unsexier and sounds like a budget automobile from Eastern Europe. Way to ruin my day, Game of Thrones producers. [EW]

... Summer Glau Summer Glau Summer Glau! The World Record holder for most nerdy stalkers will guest star on Syfy's Alphas, playing an Alpha with the superpower of getting shows canceled. She'll appear in the August 22 episode. Also dropping by Alphas will be Lindsay Wager, Garret Dillahunt, Brent Spiner, Alaina Huffman, Rebecca Mader, and Peter Wingfield. [Syfy via press release]

... Justin Bruening, who once starred in a show about a man and a talking car, will guest star in the CW's Ringer. Hunky Bruening will play a hunky suitor of hunky Sarah Michelle Gellar's Siobhan (she's the evil twin!) in the hunky, twisty thriller. [TV Line]

... Everyone loves John Corbett! Especially Parenthood! Corbett returns to the NBC drama to woo Lauren Graham's Sarah just as her new flame Mark also returns. You know what that means! Threesome! Or fistfight. Or both. [TV Line]

... Sony Pictures TV is dusting off an old project named Dead Lawyers, which is also the punchline to "What's the only good kind of lawyer?" The potential series, which was pitched around to networks eight years ago, is about a defense attorney who dies and goes to Hell: a law firm with other deceased jerk lawyers that helps right wrongs in the justice system to find redemption. Justified creator Graham Yost is on board to write and produce. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Bravo has renewed The Real Housewives of Orange County, Top Chef Masters, and Million Dollar Listing LA, and picked up three other shows that I'll never watch. [Deadline Hollywood]

On what bases exactly can M. Tim Surette's claim Summer Glau is "The World Record holder for most nerdy stalkers"?



Does SG fans/stalkers have the world record for the most numerous assassination attempts on a President of The United States ? (side note to the younger audience : John Hinckley reference, Google it).

Is there a blog where they posts pictures of the altar they have erected in the honor of Summer Glau? Can you provide a link?

And how exactly do you measure the level of "stalkiness"? More than 3 posters of SG in a room? In this case Justin Bieber or Robert Pattinson should be scared for life.

Or how much fake nude pics you can find? Some people tweets links but i don't recall there is more than for other actresses. I have also read fanfiction where Cameron from TSCC has sex with John Connor, or femslash where Cameron has sex with Sarah Connor; i'm sure there's much more fetish examples but nothing that an adult couln't endure.

KyleEggers, one of his co-workers tried to defend M. Tim Surette and gave an explanation that i quote here :



"Take the comment he said, break it down line by line and slam dunk it in my face what bad journalism means and how he insulted the fans, other then the ones that "stalk" her. Then run over to google and type in "Summer Glau ***ing with a horse" and tell me she doesn't have some creepy stalker fans.



"The World Record holder for most nerdy stalkers" - Let's break down this line, shall we.... He never said the word fan in that line, he wrote that she has a lot of nerdy stalkers. Check the internet kid, she does..... So do a lot of actresses, nerdy stalker kids plague the internet and real life. He never quoted the group of fans as a whole, or even a demographic of fans. He blasted the nerdy stalkers."

You'll notice that the notion of "world record holder" completely disappeared; instead he tells us Summer Glau has stalker fans. Thanks for the enlightning news!

Then he says Summer has stalkers fans JUST LIKE a lot of actresses. Thanks for aknowledging this.



He admits himself that M. Tim Surettes inflammatory words ""The WORLD RECORD holder for MOST nerdy stalkers" have zero basis.

This is what i'm demonstrating against in the comment section : i'm not disputing the fact that Summer Glau has stalker fans but the adjective used to describe them.



I have also typed the Google query he suggested : the fact that it points to 4chan /tv/ section (the thread has been deleted by mods) is very revealing imo.

And now i will tell you what i think : M. Tim Surette inspiration is 4chan/tv/ where trolling and being incredibly harsh and trying to make others feel like idiots

is the rule. But the problem is these rules should not apply on a site like tv.com unless tv.com and CBS wants to be associated with the garbage that 4chan is most of the time.

When it's directed at someone as sweet and sensitive as Summer it completely stops being funny and is just plain mean; same goes for the glaufags (that's how fans of Summer Glau fans are called on 4chan).

I guess people who are incredibly cynical by nature have a hard time liking anyone that admires someone so much for her lack of cynisism and sweetness ... qualities which can be looked at as weakness.

I may be a Glaufag but i'm not the kind you can insult just make a funny line, i hope you have understood it by now.

Exactly it is very unprofessional of Tim to use flametory argument taken from internet troll on his articles. It is obvious that this is just to attract readers and to get more comments.



I ignore people talking about the Summer Glau curses. Because any grown up should know that there are no such thing as curses and I don't really understand how wrongfully calling an actress a show killer is considered funny. It is just lame trolling and one should not feed trolls.



robertmitchum78 if you disagree with an article it is enough leaving just one or two comments explaining your opinion. If you spam the comment sections with hundreds of comments. People will just ignore you and thinking you are a crazybot and you accomplish nothing by doing this.

You're the voice of reason sir and i should certainly follow your good advice.



But i'm not in a reasonable mood these days, more in a get-back-at-M.-Tim-Surette-for-what-he-wrote mood.

Besides i'm just doing what he asks for in his twitter profile :

"I watch TV, write stories about them for TV.com, then read all the angry comments from users."



He should add : "then watch how i lost the few credibility i had before"

"Don't feed the troll" as they say. But i'm not a troll just a fan angry at seing how dispecrectful M. Tim Surette is towards Summer Glau and her fans. Funny thing is that M Tim Surette stopped tweeting for one day (Tim Surette@TimAtTVDotCom) and started again today, thinking the hullabaloo is over. Wrong.

Tv.com members, by trying to cover her fellow are not only in solidarity the're obviously accomplice and supportive of M. Tim Surette insulting Summer Glau and her fans.

My rant was primarily against M. Tim Surette's slandarous article on tv.com but tv.com would better throw a bomb at this news right now because i will continue to denounce in a civil and (i hope) well argumented manner M. Tim Surette's professional mistake.

Side note : you can continue to remove from my account the ability to post comments as long as you want, i will not stay silent, just create new accounts.

Collegues of M. Tim Surette's, masqued as regular users, have regularly showed up on this comment section : it's easy to spot them and to verify the creation's date of their account (they've done the same on twitter btw). They have used different tactics : first they try to use the "stalker fan" angle, they they tried to explain line by line the article without convincing me then they use several times the 'mental institution escaped' angle.

But as they saw it did not worked on me, they prefer not to answer me, hoping i will be bored and move on.

For all tv.com readers who show up here wondering why this news has so much comments, let me restate a few things.

News author M. Tim Surette thought he would be funny by writing this :

"The World Record holder for most nerdy stalkers will guest star on Syfy's Alphas, playing an Alpha with the superpower of getting shows canceled."



And it is funny!

The first issue is that this joke is overused, to the point it becomes tiring when you see it again.

More, everytime there is a news about Summer Glau, some wannabe-funny guys quote it in comments, hoping to draw some attention. In this case i don't respond and just move on.

But writing this on an article in a well-known website is a professional mistake that cannot be ignored.

A reader from tv.com who has a vague idea who Miss Glau is and what she's done could take this comment as granted and, given the large audience of tv.com, this could be potentially detrimental to Miss Glau career.

M. Tim Surette's commnents shows nothing but a complete disrespect for Summer Glau and her fans, and as such is untolerable, hence my rant on the comment section.

I recommand you take a look at the following links to see how M. Tim Surette's comments are inappropriate:

http://io9.com/5778147/seriously-theres-no-such-thing-as-a-summer-glau-curse

http://imgur.com/K87uk



I'm well aware i look as an obsessive fan by doing this but my feeling to have been insulted is even greater.



When Syfy will announce Alphas has been renewed for a second second, the stupidity of M. Tim Surette comment's will be exposed and i hope he will feel ashamed of himself.

Warehouse 13 is a great show, and so is Haven. Two completely different types of shows, but both good watching. I tried to get into Suits for a few eps, but just really lost interest. As for Necessary Roughness, as far as I'm concerned, it should have been named: Unnecessary

Viewing. There is not one likeable character in the show, especially the shrink.

Ok I never watched Warehouse 13, but one little word in this article may change my mind: steampunk. When Tim mentioned the show had steampunk, are we talking about airships in the like? Airships are so cool.

If you're gonna give Warehouse 13 a shot then I'd recommend you give it a good 4/5 eps. I foolishly gave up after 3, writing it off as a sub standard mixing pot of various other shows. It was only after trying again that I its greatmess.

I'm not sure fans of Satrgate Universe or Caprica share your opinion on syfy (thanks).

And we all know that cable networks have not the same pressure as broadcast networks when it comes to ratings.

Cable networks annonce the renewall of a show very quickly if it has acceptable ratings (somewhere between 0.5 and 0.7 or higher in 18-49 adult demo for Syfy).

This way they can expect viewers to be faithful to the show week after week.

Yes, but I didn't say they ONLY renew crap, just that renewal is no judge of a good show on syfy. For every Caprica, there's a Haven or two.

I really hope Suits gets renewed. I wasn't too interesting in the show but I had a slow day at work a while back and watched the pilot on hulu and was hooked. I'm curious to see where they go with it and how long the characters can keep the act up.



I loved game of thrones and really need to get around to reading the books I just keep getting distracted by everything else. I'm torn between wanting to read the books for the story and not wanting to spoil what will happen in the show. I loved how much of a cliff hanger every episode seemed to be.



Alphas was probably the most surprising show. The show wasn't even on my radar until I saw summer glau was on it. Since then I've watched it and loved it. Finding out Garret Dillahunt will also be on it is an added bonus. This is another show I hope does well a lot of people seem to hate on it and I have no idea why.



As for the rest of the shows never heard of them.

Also i like the fact that tv.com Edotor in Chief has probably asked M. Tim Surette not to answer directly on this news or on Twitter.

Tim Surette just calls it as he sees it and the Summer Glau reference was probably said tongue in cheek - a point lost on some of the brain dead readers of this site. If you don't like Surette, simply don't read his articles. Personally, it's the execs who have on more than occasion got it wrong, Firefly, Dolls House, Sarah Connor, The 4400 etc, all Summer's shows, were good (if not great in Firefly's case) but because they were not mainstream (read American red neck, dumb a*se reality TV shows like the ones listed on Bravo) and they are not willing to take the chance - look at this season's axings, Rubicon (all class!), Flashforward (improving), V, Human Target, The Event (about to take off), The Gates (all class!) to name a few - good premise, story lines and fantastic acting but just too intelligent for your average Yank! I think will fit in well on Alphas. ps I intentionally left off any reference to The Cape - that show sucked big time and no amount of input from Summer could save it!

I agree that it was probably said tongue in cheek as it often is anytime someone makes "glau curse" comments. The issue is that saying it as a comment on some random web form or even article comment is one thing, a journalist (is he actually a journalist?) say it in an article on a site like tv.com is entirely different.



If people don't really know who summer glau is and see comments like this they will immediately form an opinion of her without seeing her. It then makes it harder for her to get legitimate roles. Then she'll get stuck with roles like The Cape that no one else wants because they know it will suck, so the show gets canceled.



I think glau is a good actress but since she's still relatively unknown outside of her fanbase she gets the roles other well known actresses pass up.

Or he just understands that people make jokes. I don't agree with what Tim has said about Summer, so I ignore it. It's being done to get a rise out of people and to get additional traffic to the site. So far I'd say it's a huge success.



I love Summer just as much as the next fanboy I'm just not disillusioned enough to think everyone must love her and to attack anyone that doesn't.



Going off your rocker to attack Tim and anyone else that doesn't vehemently disagree with him just makes Glau fans look crazy and plays into what Tim was hoping for.



I wouldn't be surprised if Summer was more upset by how her "fans" are acting than by the throw away comment of someone like Tim that is obviously trolling.

M. Surette



I'm deeply hurt by what you wrote about Summer Glau and her fans and i hope i'm not the only one. I'm a huge fan of Summer Glau but that doesn't mean automatically i'm a stalker or a nerd or both, unlike what you're implying in your article.



Summer Glau has played two of the most iconic characters in scifi history but i doubt these characters would have had this impact without Summer Glau's subtile and inspired performances.



Summer Glau carries herself with dignity, and appreciates her fans as much as they appreciate her as a result.She is so talented, driven, and engaged that she excels almost immediately in any part she plays. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and she has a raw and pure talent that allows her to breathe vivacious life into her characters.



Scifi shows have a tendency to get cancelled on broacast tv these days and Summer Glau is tycast, this is true; i don't recall Miss Glau played on The Event, No Ordinary Family, V or Flasforward though.



I can understand some internet users want to sound funny by mentioning the so-called Summer Glau curse but this is inadmissible when it comes from someone who claims to be a journalist and write in such a famous website. Not to mention this is insulting for her fans and for herself.



And don't tell me that i have no sense of humour, or that it was not meant to be taken seriously or that you're a great fan of hers as they say each time. That doesn't remove one inch of the feeling to have been insulted. less

Also, you say you aren't a crazy stalker or a nerd, a simple scroll down and noticing all your posts of what look like rave reviews by critics of Summer, screams mental illness. How long did it take you to cut and paste those from your Summer fan blog? But it's nice to know, when you burn pictures of Tim you printed off the internet at the alter you've erected in the honor of Summer Glau, you'll finally get your justice.

Body of proof - what shows have gone on to star Summer that weren't cancelled? She's an awesome actress - he made a joke and you're the guy that takes things to seriously. I'm sure you can make any joke about anything and someone out there will take the time to sit and type out a long hyperbole on the internet flaming the jokesman all the while not feeling uncomfortable with the stick in their butt. Summer gets shows cancelled, it's a joke with a body of proof. He didn't say she was a crappy actor, or that her influence hasn't been felt throughout the media. And she does have a huge fan base of geeky guys who stalk her. He didn't say all her fans fell into this category, just that she has a huge fanbase that do. So dislodge stick and crack your knuckles because you are going to be typing a lot on the internet if you have to jump to the assistance of all starlings being flamed on the internet.

Pretending th so-called 'curse' has a body of proof shows you don't understand modern television.

I recommand you read Io9.com article :

Seriously, there's no such thing as a "Summer Glau Curse."

I would have preferred he said Summer Glau is a bad actor in his opinion; it would have been his opinion after all, even if i don't share it.

But using an bad joke and insulting the fans is not an opinion, this is bad journalism and Tim Surette doesn't belong here.

He has lost credibility.

Take the comment he said, break it down line by line and slam dunk it in my face what bad journalism means and how he insulted the fans, other then the ones that "stalk" her. Then run over to google and type in "Summer Glau fornicating with a horse" and tell me she doesn't have some creepy stalker fans.



"The World Record holder for most nerdy stalkers" - Let's break down this line, shall we.... He never said the word fan in that line, he wrote that she has a lot of nerdy stalkers. Check the internet kid, she does..... So do a lot of actresses, nerdy stalker kids plague the internet and real life. He never quoted the group of fans as a whole, or even a demographic of fans. He blasted the nerdy stalkers.



"playing an Alpha with the superpower of getting shows canceled" -Welcome to the joke portion, the slam/pow/hit 'em in the kisser part of the joke. I have to think to myself..... Has Summer Glau been on any shows that have been canceled? (Not due in part to her actual being apart of the show, just coincidence) Let's see..... Firefly, yes.... Cancelled. Terminator, yes....... Canceled. Dollhouse, yes......... Cancelled. There in lies the body of proof for the joke that makes it kind of funny. This isn't a real bash on her, merely an observation.

@ Kyle 'Tim Surette" Eggers



There is no such thing as a curse.



We get it, you hate Summer and veil your troll attempt by saying how much you like her but... she is a curse and her fans are all creeps.



Go take a shower in diesel and eat a road flare.

It is a old well known 4chan/tv/ troll copied word for word by that hack Tim Surette, just like his last article about Jesse's parties on Breaking Bad not being fun anymore was ripped from 4chan/tv/ threads we have been having since Sunday.



Tim is a troll and his remarks are calculated and made with ill intent.



Tim steals content from Anonymous and passes it off as his own because he is a talent devoid cow flop.

Thanks for the explanations Tim! But at this stage of dishonesty, this not not explanations we need, it's excuses for making a bad joke and encouraging weak minded internet users.

I also read the I09 article, I liked how it started off with "FACT: Summer Glau is a great actor". Not a fact, that is his opinion, you might share in that opinion or you might not, but in the end, it is not a fact. I like how every show had to be broken down, giving other reasons, the fact still remains, she was on those shows when they were finished as a starring role. The red sox curse was broken, but you didn't hear everyone blaming everyone but the redsox before that. I'm sure there's a crap ton of reasons of why the Redsox never won a world series since the curse of the bambino, but it was a redsox curse until it was broken. As of right now, for one reason or another, every show Summer Glau has had a starring role on has been cancelled. Yes, different reasons of why the shows were cancelled, but the underlining event for each show was Summer Glau, not that she's a bad actor or the reason, that's why it's a curse. She's cursed to have shows crash around her. I think she needs to do some better script reading, The Cape? Come on, I knew that was going to be garbage from the previews. She only has herself to blame for that flaming heap of trash. Also, read the comments on the IO9 article, even her fans are joking about it. Something you need to learn how to do.

Go eat a bag of glass shitbird. The fact that the curse is not part of any valid criticism is worse than him saying he thinks she sucks. Because he's a fucking troll.



If you don't think shitposting like Tim Surette does is not malicious then you are a fucking idiot and a troll yourself.

Tim's trolling is aimed and calculated, Tim is a lowlife pile of shit.

I can see the writer of this article right now - sitting in his basement, the lights dimmed.... A poster on the wall that says - how can I further bash Summer Glau to ruin her good reputation. But, we can't do this like a child and scream obscenities on the internet.... No! We have to be aimed and calculated but at the same time..... Malicious! And the curse is not apart of any valid criticism you say? That's very true, it does not detract from her awesome acting ability..... Just as the original comment was not a criticism of Summer Glau, Time merely made a joke. You go ahead and fight yourself on this topic as you just proved my point, I'll sit back and relax.

It is not a joke, it's a word for word troll copied from 4chan/tv/, just like Tim's last Breaking Bad article about Jesse's parties sucking. 4chan/tv/ has had that same thread a half dozen times since Sunday.



Tim plagiarizes Anonymous and uses their words as his own. He is a hack and a troll. And a person who merits hate and discontent.

Yes, implying an almost universally loved actress is the reason her shows get canceled, (Clearly a joke.) and outright calling someone names is totally the same thing. Keep crying kids, I'm sure Tim finds it quite amusing.

Why are you trying to lead me into the crazy fandom territory? I thought i made myself clear i felt insulted by using appropriate words.



I love Summer Glau's acting that doesn't mean i'm in love with her. At 45 i have other love interest in life than 30 years old american actress.

You realize that if, while riding a train, you meet Ms. Glau, you will still have no chance with her. Even if you have the best line.

I'm a Stargate fan for life so the fact that wh13 is still on instead of SGU p-i-s-s-es me off! I would trade every show on syfy for more Stargate. And the only problem with Summer Glau is she has a bad habit of picking shows that suck or that the network decides it doesn't like. Alot of the shows she was on tons of fans wish that they did not get canceled like Firefly. Had nothing to do with Summer just the dumb azzes at the network.

I don't know how you put up with this man. Don't let 'em get you down Tim, you have fans here too.



Just keep in mind the three rules of dealing with crazies:

1. Don't bring up Lost's ending.

2. Don't state a preference of either Ps3 or Xbox 360.

3. And for god's sake, DO NOT SPEAK POORLY OF SUMMER!

Or suffer the Wrath of Nerds.

Yeah, that's totally me. This is an awesome example of mass delusion. Someone suggests people making fake accounts, and suddenly everyone believes it. Remember everyone, the most important issues of our day involve not the debt crisis, but Summer Glau.

If you read correctly, i have always been polite.



I'm not the one insulting Summer Glau and her fans. Tim Surette can always tweet that is was a joke and that he likes Summer Glau (i wrote in my first article he would say that like all people who made a mistake do) it cannot erase the feeling to have been insulted.



I invite him respectfully to modify it's article in order to re gain the respect he has lost.

I don't think they are paying you to insult the fans you are assigned to write articles for.



And for insulting Summer like a 4chan shit troll you should eat some .44 Caliber aspirin.

When internet users makes this kind of comments about actors and the fans, we can always pretend they're trolls but when it's the journalists themselves it's a professional mistake.

Tim Surette,



Ah, you're another of the useless git reporters Summer Glau couldn't find time to give an interview to.



So you bite back, with stupid, witless rage and write nonsense carp about her. Shame on you for attempting to damage the career of one of the best actors and nicest persons out there.



You're terminated!

I'm deeply hurt by what you wrote about Summer Glau and her fans and i hope i'm not the only one. I'm a huge fan of Summer Glau but that doesn't mean automatically i'm a stalker or a nerd or both, unlike what you're implying in your article.



Summer Glau has played two of the most iconic characters in scifi history but i doubt these characters would have had this impact without Summer Glau's subtile and inspired performances.



Summer Glau carries herself with dignity, and appreciates her fans as much as they appreciate her as a result.She is so talented, driven, and engaged that she excels almost immediately in any part she plays. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and she has a raw and pure talent that allows her to breathe vivacious life into her characters.



Scifi shows have a tendency to get cancelled on broacast tv these days and Summer Glau is tycast, this is true; i don't recall Miss Glau played on The Event, No Ordinary Family, V or Flasforward though.



I can understand some internet users want to sound funny by mentioning the so-called Summer Glau curse but this is inadmissible when it comes from someone who claims to be a journalist and write in such a famous website. Not to mention this is insulting for her fans and for herself.



And don't tell me that i have no sense of humour, or that it was not meant to be taken seriously or that you're a great fan of hers as they say each time. That doesn't remove one inch of the feeling to have been insulted.

Best news for a while (I HATE reality TV)! I love Warehouse 13, it's one of the best things on TV right now, but what the hell is "steampunk"? Is it an Americanism? **You are now humming the Game of Thrones theme song in your head** Thanks for that - great theme, but now it's stuck! Also, "Summer Glau... with the superpower of getting shows canceled." I can't believe how true this is, she is usually the best thing about all the shows she is in as well. Look at The Cape, rubbish concept, poor show, but Glau was just starting to develope an interesting character - a tiny bit of caviar in the middle of a block of cheese. It sounds like Alphas is doing all the right things to ensure it gets renewed with some great guest appearences and the story is really starting to kick into second gear (not sure I like the walking clich that is Cameron Hicks, however).

@KevinMcColl Caprica > SG:U, WH13 > SG:U. SGU's cast was really the best thing the show had going for it. it had it's moments but had plenty of not that enjoyable to watch ones as well. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Necessary Roughness and WH13 renewals are great news. let's juts make sure burn notice or fairly legal (or even royal pains) get the axe before Necessary Roughness , psych, covert affairs or white collar do.
