Warehouse 13, Monday 9:00 EST, SyFy
The show came back strong, and two things I suspected turned out to be true. First, the team raced to find a way to turn back time to before the bomb in order to prevent the destruction of the warehouse. Second, we learned that Mrs. Frederic is indeed organically connected to the warehouse – a very interesting idea that I hope we hear more about later.
In the second episode, Steve was resurrected using the metronome, and this week we saw that there is some kind of weird physical connection between he and Claudia now. It appears that using her energy to help bring him back must have somehow exchanged something between them. I find this concept very intriguing. This week’s episode demonstrated a very interesting parallel between the two brothers, with the one giving up his own life to save his brother, and Claudia and Steve. What do you think is going on?
The story arc for the season revolves around the repercussions surrounding Artie’s use of the astrolabe to turn back time, as well as his disturbing vision of Claudia stabbing him. What do you think of this storyline?
What do you think of the season so far?
True Blood, Sunday 9:00 EST, HBO
I am still a couple of episodes behind on the show, so will only be discussing up through episode seven, where the Authority vampires, along with Bill and Eric, drank a bit of the blood of Lilith and went on a rampage. Please resist spoilers beyond that point.
In that particular episode Sookie learns something about herself: since she is only half-faerie, her powers are finite and will eventually diminish. This news causes her to think about what it would be like to not have any powers, to be normal, and Sookie decides she would really like that turn of events.
I have kind of mixed feelings about the show right now. It seems to me to be trying to do too much. I don’t yet understand the connection of Terry’s problem to the whole. As wrenching as the story behind the source of his PTSD is, I’m not sure the digressions benefit the show. I also wish we were seeing more of Sookie.
How do you feel about the show so far this season?
Lost Girl, Friday 10:00 EST, SyFy
Unfortunately, I am also two episodes behind on this show. I will be discussing what has happened up through the genie episode.
So far, in addition to the various relationship changes, the most significant event has been Bo’s discovery that she is to play a part in defeating the coming evil. Do you trust Lachlan?
I’m sure everyone loved the body-switch episode, where we saw Dyson as Kenzie – that was completely hysterical! That was definitely one of my favorite scenes from the show this season.
What do you think of the show right now? Where do you think things may be headed? Please watch out for spoilers – I will be caught up for next time!
*Watchers, Grimm returns Monday, 8/13 at 10:00 EST, but I am unclear as to whether the whole season begins then or just the premiere. I will keep you posted as I hear.
