  • H.G. is back and Pete is pissed.

    Okay the most exciting part of this show was seeing Ianto from Torchwood in it!!! I thought it was done really well with the flashbacks and gave us more insight into H.G. It also allowed Pete to vent a little more about how upset he was with how things went down last season and the beginning of this season. But honestly the second I saw Ianto I was just giddy. I miss him this season on Torchwood very much.moreless
  • 3...2...1

    3...2...1 was a superb episode of Warehouse 13 and I really enjoyed watching this episode because H.G. Wells made an appearance which was exciting. This episode had a great story, great acting and also some great character development. Myka trusts H.G. Wellls while Pete does not and this creates some tension. I thought that this was great episode which moves the series forward. The story of the artifact was interesting and the writers definitely took an interesting route with the story, I only wish that they would have been a little more in tune with the theories of Ancient Aliens on the History Channel. The story of this episode brings to light stories of the ancient past. I look forward to watching the next episode of Warehouse 13 !!!!!!!moreless

  • NOTES (3)


    • Helena: Come, Mr. Wolcott. In the words of my good friend, Mr. Doyle, "the game's afoot."
      Referencing the prolific Scottish writer, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who wrote many plays, historical novels, science fiction stories, and poetry. However, Doyle is best known as the creator of the legendary detective, Sherlock Holmes, who often quoted Shakespeare's Henry V, act III, scene 1, by saying "the game's afoot" when faced with a new mystery.

    • Pete: Quid pro quo, Clarice.
      Referencing the novel Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris and subsequent 1991 movie adaptation. In it, Dr. Hannibal Lector bargains with a young FBI agent, Clarice Starling, to provide her with information she needs on a serial killer at large. In return he has her confess her childhood secrets and feeds on her psychological pain.

    • Pete: What? I saw Contact.
      Referencing the 1997 movie starring Jodie Foster as a scientist working for the SETI program who makes contact with an alien intelligence, which sends plans allowing the government to build a machine that will enable a first-contact with an alien species.
