  • Hilariously funny episode

    Hilariously funny episode, where Pete, Myka, Artie and Pete's ex girlfriend are sucked inside a TV showing a Spanish soap opera!
  • A return to the non-angsty formula of Early W13

    9.0
    Once upon a time, Warehouse 13 was funny and silly, but in the last couple of years it has been increasingly angsty. This final season has been a bit lighter so far, but this is the first episode in a long time that is just pure fun. It's one of the funniest episodes of the series, and silliest. Judging from the promo for next week, this may be the last really fun episode, but I'm glad they gave us this before going back into the soap opera aspects of the show.moreless

    If you just went with it, this is one of the funniest episodes for the series. Gay Steve was insane! The silly transformation whenever the cufflinks were exchanged was very amusing, and everybody just looked like they were having a good time with it. It was one of those, so bad it's great moments. The big reveal, which is also the worst kept secret of the series, comes closer to fruition, and I can't imagine a happier ending. This show and Eureka were my geeky comedies and Warehouse 13's exit will leave a gap nothing currently on can fill.moreless
  • Soap Opera Land

    I may be in the minority on this but this in my book is another favorate of mine for the series. This also has to be one of the most bizzare episodes for this series, I personally never thought they'd ever do this but they have and I thought it was great. The main plot is basically a spoof on those Spanish soap operas much like the miniseries "The Spoils of Babylon".



    There's nothing worse I hate more than soap operas and the fact that the Warehouse gang is getting zapped into a Spanish soap makes it even worse. I can think of a number of shows I'd rather be zapped into "Doctor Who", "Game of Thrones", .GI Joe", "Sailor Moon" you name it, coming into a soap would be a living hell for me.



    Anyway what I really love was this spoof shameless had all the cleche, eliements, and yuck in those soaps. From the close ups, guns pulled out (every soap always seems to have a gun control issue), fourth walls broken right when their coming to a commercial break, slaps, twists that just come out of nowhere you name it it's all there.



    I even like the story that is constructed as well as the dialog which is hillarous because of how delishiously bad it is. It's a character in itself because you get the feeling the writers of that soap either were making things up as they went along or didn't know what the hell their were doing. However I like that there was a certain amount of intrigue as both the Warehouse gang and us are trying to make sense out of the nonsensical story to get to the object. Even like Pete, Mika, and Artie's reactions at times which is about the same think were thinking, "What in the hell is going on?" yeah that what I always say to most to all the soaps.



    But I felt what really powered the plot was in the performances of Eddie, Joannie, Saul, Paula, and the rest in that plot. I could easily tell Eddie, Joannie, and Saul all three really acted their butts off, what they had to do was not the easiest feet, not just having to speak Spanish fluently but perform naturally; they also had to keep switching to play two different characters, one themselves and the soap character their suppose to be. And all three did I felt an excellent job you almost by they could be Spanish soap actors.



    It was funny how all three whenever they played the Spanish character counterparts how they would overact and deliver the dialog. Even like their costumes, from Pete in that flashy outfit along with the ridiculously big mustache, Artie in the general uniform thoughout the who segment, but of course my favorate was seeing Mika in the maid uniform which she looked so hot in, there's always something about females in some sort of uniform that turns me on, I honestly don't know why may'be it's just how they wear them, Joannie wears it well indeed.



    The only bad thing about the plot was I didn't like how Pete reacted when Mika or should I say her Spanish counterpart was about to kiss him it was kinda out of charcter, honestly Pete your a man she's a woman. But may'be this is just a way to delay the suspense more for both of them to genuinely kiss at the end of the show, at least I hope it happens it should. Though I did like that one scene when both Pete and Mika were just about to kiss (or should I say their courterparts) but is interrupted by a twist that just comes out of nowhere when the mother of Mika's character just seemed to of teleported and gives out news that lets just say justifys why the soap their in was canceled.



    And of course I really liked the sub plot with both Jinx and Claudia, it's kinda similar to the "Batman: The Brave and Bold" episode "A Bat Divided". The highlight of the subplot was seeing Jinx split into two different versions of himself to represent two aspects of his persona. One which was the super serious and very angry side another was the super gay but freewheeling, cut loose,slightly chaotic dude; I really loved Shawn's performance I really bought him as two different people (or should I say personas). The freewheeling part of him I thought was the funniest, sort of reminds me a bit of the two charcters from the "Men on Film" skits on the TV show "In Living Color" and he really feels like a guy you just love to party with.



    And it was just funny when they were at the party we see both doing their job and at the same time their own thing. And of course we see the Freewheeling version of Jinx wants to keep the party going so he then steels the candle from Claudia and the Serious side of himself; which of course result to me in one of the most interesting and daftest one on one fights I've seen, when both versions of Jinx physically fight each other. Though I'm not sure I would call it much of a fight since it looked a bit more like a catfight between the two as both are slapping each other, the freewheeling version is throwing things, and the serious version is the one putting on agreesive offensive though not very well.



    And the final minutes, I love what Kelly said that "Pete is in love with and she's right, I though it was great when she said it because that's something we've all known, heck even God and fate knew it too and both were practically throwing him a bone. And as I said before I don't see why not, both have the best chemistry, and lets face it his love life right now is going nowhere those things ought to be telling him something. And I can tell from that look on Pete's face in the end he knows what Kelly said to him is the truth. So, it's now coming to decision time for Pete, and he better decide fast since there are only two episodes left, time is running out.moreless

    • Artie: (translating) "Dear Mrs. Hernandez, blah, blah, blah..."
      Pete: Really, blah, blah, blah? What is that, Spanish for "blah, blah, blah"?

    • Artie: Probably was just a cheap TV prop until Kelly's grandmother got it. Elderly shut-in, lost her husband. Sometimes people fill a void with an obsessive attachment to a TV show.
      Pete: Hey, I watch Breaking Amish because I like it, okay? I can quit anytime.

    • Claudia: All right, frat boy, what kind of heathen initiation ritual are we about to walk into here?
      Steve: I don't know. My frat wasn't like this. We had book club and yuletide a capella. Please forget that I said that.
      Claudia: Oh, my god, it just gets better.

    • Claudia: So, any residual effects?
      Steve: Besides the bruises, the hangover, and your relentless nagging me to call everyone see a "biatch"?
      Claudia: Say it again, say it again!
      Steve: No, stop that

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Pete: This house is not clean.
      Referencing the 1982 horror movie Poltergeist, and a line of dialogue spoken by the medium Tangina Barrons (Zelda Rubinstein). When her character arrives at the house, she senses that the spirits are present and says "This house is not clean." Later when the spirits are apparently exercised, she declares that it is clean.

    • Pete: Hey, I watch Breaking Amish because I like it, okay?
      Referencing the 2012 TLC series which features five Anabaptist adults traveling to the big city to experience life outside of their communities and decide whether to stay or return. The show's first season, set in New York City, provided popular enough to spawn a second season set in LA.

    • Pete: Next week can we meet Honey Boo Boo?
      Referencing child beauty pageant contestant Alana Thompson, nicknamed "Honey Boo Boo." She first appeared on TLC in Toddlers & Tiaras in 2009 and her popularity led them to spin her off into her own show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in 2012.

    • Claudia: Let's play that again, Sam.
      Referencing the 1942 Michael Curtiz film Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. One of the movie's most famous, albeit misquoted lines, is "Play it once, Sam for old times' sake" and then "Play it, Sam."Sam is the club's piano player, played by Dooley Wilson.

    • Claudia: I bet you were just like Hoover.
      Referencing the 1978 movie National Lampoon's Animal House. Robert Hoover (James Widdoes) is the president of the Delta Tau Chi fraternity house, and typically ends up trying to put a good face on the house's debaucheries and cheating.

    • Steve: Oh, boo-hoo, Nancy Drew.
      Referencing the girl detective Nancy Drew, first written by Mildred Benson in 1930. The series has been updated several times and been the subject of several movies and TV series, the most recent in 2007 with Emma Roberts in the title role.
