  • The Pen is mightier than the sword!

    7.0
    Well in this episode almost! Interesting plot line involving Edgar Allen Poe's quill pen. Is enhanced when we find out that this was all part of a bigger plot. Good episode.
  • MacPhereson tricks Pete and Myka into bringing in an artifact for him..

    6.5
    Hey, what's up with all these stories relating artifacts to authors and poets. We had Louis Carrol in one of the earlier episodes and Edgar Poe in this one. I am not sure why the writers keep insisting shoving the MacPhereson storyline again and again. And now it seems like the rogue agent story might never end after all. I am still not very convinced by this episode. We had a number of stories, which by no means was uninteresting. But when you piece them all together, it simply doesn't create the wow effect. W13 is expanding its story base, delving into the agents' personal lives. But the general feeling is that the show is still trying to find its place.moreless

    I have been waiting for an artifact related to Edgar Allen Poe. Truly one of the most fascinating people of modern history. Unfortunately they mix it in with the reintroduction of the James MacPherson character.



    Myka's father and mother are drawn in to the artifact wars by the ever evil Roger Rees as James MacPherson. Knowing that Myka's father has a book store and loves books he sends the journal he had in his possession knowing that Pete and Myka would need to track down the pen to save Myka's fathers life. Meanwhile at in Portland a young man, Bobby Busecki, who is in love and is being bullied by his peers starts hearing a calling from the pen which is kept in his professor's classroom. Grabbing the pen he finds he has the power to make things happen by just writing the basic thoughts onto a piece of paper. One of his incidents show up on Artie's radar and Pete and Claudia go to investigate while Myka stays with her parents. Claudia is not a field agent so even though personally I have no problem with her being there it is totally inappropriate to be taking her out into the field. I really enjoyed the basic idea and motive of this story but there were a number of things that I disliked or that made me uncomfortable. The terrible James MacPherson character which as I said in an earlier review is really just to create unneeded drama. This show has enough already. Claudia being in the field helping the agents when Artie had gotten in trouble before for even having her involved in Warehouse projects. The Jack the Ripper and Edgar Allen Poe artifacts were very cool and made up for a lot of this. I guess it was alright that we solved some of the angst between Myka and her parents. Myka for being a Secret Service Agent still seems to have an awful amount of unresolved issues.



    Overall a mixed episode as a set up for next weeks finale. I really wish they would have rethought this former agent turned artifact hound angle but I guess not. It could have been much worse! So I give this episode an entertaining 8.5. Thanks for reading...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the beginning Myka is supposedly in an apartment in Berlin. The street does not look like Berlin, Germany and the kind of window seen in the flat is almost never found in Germany. German flats would furthermore almost always have a corridor.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Artie: Look, we were following a lead.
      Mrs. Frederic: You took a shot in the dark.
      Artie: We hit the center of that target.
      Mrs. Frederic: With a small-caliber bullet.
      Artie: Pete's caliber is very large. We... you know what? I'm done with this analogy.

    • Mrs. Frederic: Manage my assets better or I swear on the ashes of the first twelve Warehouses, I will take them away.

    • Pete: He thinks you're still in D.C. They both do.
      Myka: Well, yeah. And if you tell them any differently, I swear, I will… I will drop a dictionary on your crotch.

    • Pete: But there's something else.
      Myka: What?
      Pete: I think I'm hot for your mom.
      (Myka thinks about it)
      Myka: I'll break it to Dad.
      Pete: Okay.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Myka: What, I'm supposed to tell them that I'm working for the world's most dangerous Antiques Roadshow?
      Referencing the 1979 British series (and/or its 1997 American version, or various other international incarnations). The premise is that professional evaluators take to the road and people in the towns they visit brings them antiques to be assessed and their historical backgrounds explained.
