  • Wasn't what I expected

    it was not like what i expected. artefact idea is nice and the episode was good also. loved the song in the episode and the thing with family relationship. however still after the pilot i am expecting artefacts that have more relation with historical events. hope there is more history in the further episodes
  • Enjoyable Episode

    Didn't enjoy this as much as the Pilot. Had an interesting story, but I didn't care too much for the way it ended. Reminded me of Scooby Doo when they pulled the mask off the villain. Overall not bad.
  • Music to Rob a bank by?

    I repeat my review of the pilot and add something new at the end...

    Thinking that the show would entertain me was the first thing wrong with this show....(spoiler alert)

    The female character is annoyingly butch and b**chy

    The male character is such a man w*ore to all women he sees, did we really need the assertion of his manhood within the first 5 minutes of the show?

    The scientist character is beyond annoying, but that's the actor's fault - he's a bad actor in a bad role.

    The show is nothing more that Friday the 13th the Series with a very-low sci-fi (pardon me) syfy twist to it.

    I don't see the show going more than 1-2 years at best...they have to pump up the scripts, clean up the characters and add more SCI-FI to the show and leave the human drama out of it...

    Episode 2: What the deuce? Musical genius creates music to rob a bank and the people around him are the culprit - you didn't need spidey sense to see that this episode - like the pilot was 30 minutes too long...and all the background drama of the characters only made it seem as long as the original pilot. I had hoped for something more from this show...but it's got to kick in soon or it's going to be deleted from my DVR settings!

    p.s. you don't need the warehouse for the record...break it and destroy the files...leave room in the warehouse for a Tardis to travel back in time and re-write this crap!moreless
  • Ok...

    This episode was ok. I was certainly kept wondering about the nature of the artifact. I just don't get how the song had the effect; I mean, yeah the acoustics thing makes sense; but when has ANY song done anything close to what that song did? Not many, although I do get choked up when listening to certain love songs (You belong with HER, damn it!) All in all, a pretty ok episode. I don't think it was the best of the series, but what the hey? It's the second episode.

    On a completely unrelated note, the sixth Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book comes out October 12th. "And Another Thing..." by Eion Colfer.moreless
  • Better than the first

    This episode was definetely better than the first, more believable things to it.

    The story was captivating, interesting and actually dramatic, not way too inventive like the first one.

    I started to like more Myka's character that in the first episode was kinda annoing, i think she is like Olivia in Fringe, you starting liking little by little.

    I'm waiting for the next episode and i hope is better than this, so eventually the serie will become very good and enjoyable to watch.

    Nice suspense about the hacker too, cant wait to find out who is wanting to know more about the warehouse 13.moreless

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Pete: Hey.
      Myka: Don't...
      Pete: Wasn't.
      Myka: Good.
      Pete: At least it's not of my business anyway, right? But if my dad were alive I'd go to see him.

    • Leena: How are you sleeping?
      Artie: I'm not.
      Leena: I could tell. Your aura looks like hell.
      Artie: Then stop looking at it.

    • Myka: What is it with men and their balls?
      Pete: Yeah.

    • Belski: Then you get exiled off the reservation into my town, humping my leg.
      Pete: It's a nice leg.

    • Belski: Banks just hand over the money. Everyone's shy on the details.
      Pete: Which is strange.
      Belski: Tell me something I don't know.
      Pete: Uh, Mary, Queen of Scots' croquet mallet was made from a petrified narwhal's horn. She never lost a match.

    • Artie: You know, um, I had a case once where pollen from a prehistoric plant turned a woman into a sexually rapacious sleepwalker. And she was unaware that she was doing that until she, you know, pulled the pants off...
      Myka: Artie, uh... just be---be quiet.

    • Myka: What has Agent Belski done for you lately?
      Pete: Um... she sashays.
      Myka: Yeah.
      Pete: A little bit.
      Myka: No.
      Pete: She doesn't even know it.
      Myka: Oh, yes, she does. She does.

    • Myka: Okay, so what are we looking for, Artie? Are we looking for souped-up speakers or Thomas Edison's wax cylinder?
      (Pete and Artie laugh)
      Pete: Thomas Edison's what?
      Artie: Ignore him.

    • Myka: You ever see that movie The Great Santini with the tough dad and the scared kids?
      Pete: It's like that, huh?
      Myka: Yeah, except it wasn't over in two hours.

    • Myka: You know how when you sing in the shower, and it bounces off the tiles, and you sound spectacular.
      Artie: No, I never sound spectacular.

    • Belski: How does someone get invited to your party?
      Pete: Oh, well... you don't get invited. You get shoved.

    • Myka: There's three suspects, including Fissel. One was a woman.
      Pete: You sure?
      Myka: Yeah, I... felt her.
      Pete: You touched her boobies?

    • Artie: My name... doesn't matter. But I think you know who I represent.
      Dickinson: Flash Gordon?

    • Myka: Artie, I need you to find my cell phone.
      Artie: I'm not your personal cell phone locator, okay?

    • Dickinson: How they doing?
      Artie: Oh, you know, they're... mostly, they're a pain in my ass.
      Dickinson: So am I.
