The best word to describe this I think is fun. It starts off a bit dodgy and slow, but then as the series goes on, the storylines become more involving, and it's very good entertainment. On a scale of sci-fi goodness, I'd say it was at about the same level as 'Sanctuary' and 'The Dresden Files' - maybe a bit better. Towards the end you may realise you really care about the characters, even Artie the gruff Warehouse boss (Saul Rubinek), who I really wasn't keen on at the start, but I think grows on you.

It's also a really great idea for a show - a massive warehouse full of magical objects, or 'artifacts'. It will be hard for them to run out of ideas(yay, more seasons!), when there are millions of objects, and each one can be totally different. The episode I just watched included humourous but menacing dodgeballs that bounce up and down by themselves, and multiply on contact, or just downright evil historical artefacts, such as Edgar Allen Poe's notebook and feather quill, that inspires sociopathic tendencies and can make whatever it writes a reality.

The technology is the show is also a bit different, having evolved in the world of the centuries old Warehouse. For instance the 'Farnsworth', which looks like a rusty shaving mirror from the 60s, but is actually portable 2-way visual commmunication. Also pretty cool is the 'Tesla' - he worked for the Warehouse, obviously - which is basically a comical looking ray-gun, that fires bolts of electricity to stun the bad guys. Totally steampunky, and better than guns by a million. The visuals are normally great too, especially the sweeping shots of the gloomy interior of the Warehouse.

Combine "The X-Files" with Indiana Jones and add a dash of "Sanctuary," and voila -- you have "Warehouse 13."

Yeah, Sci-fi/SyFy's latest series isn't exactly the most original or unique show out there, but it is strangely endearing. After a round of rather generic standalone episodes, this series bounces off once it introduces a main villain and a plot arc -- and while there's little romantic chemistry, the lead characters are a likable bunch with some nicely handled character development.

After a weird incident involving an assassin and an Aztec bloodstone, Secret Service agents Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) and Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock) are summoned to a run-down warehouse in the South Dakota badlands. An eccentric agent called Artie (Saul Rubinek) informs them that this is Warehouse 13, which holds dangerous and bizarre "artifacts" -- and their new assignment is to collect and neutralize new artifacts.

Among the problems they encounter: a young man possessed by a strange Italian power, bank robberies using music, a teleportation experiment gone wrong, a device that channels enough energy to fry people to a crisp, a katana that can slice through light, a mirror that switches Myka with a malevolent creature, and a prison whose occupants are driven to madness by the ghosts of their pasts. But the most dangerous problem is a former agent of the Warehouse, who is now determined to grab the artifacts for his own purposes -- and destroy Artie and the others as well.

Despite being pretty derivative of "The X-Files" at times (skeptical strict female agent paired with quirky wild card), "Warehouse 13" has a pretty brilliant concept -- basically it's about a place that seals away any dangerous historical artifacts.

Purchased for my husband who is a fan of the series and of course he loves it. It's funny, interesting and well researched, overall a great show.

Stars though must be removed for a fact that many others have pointed out, no subtitles, since I have no issue watching the show on tv (because subtitles are available) I cannot enjoy watching this on dvd at my pleasure, I have hearing loss and rely on subtitles when unable to have the volume at a level where I can hear it (when our young son is in bed).

I really don't understand why they have been ommited from the UK dvd release. Very descrimanitory of them to exclude an audiance.

While I may get the later series for my hubby, I'm saddened that I may not be able to enjoy them with him.

I didn't really expect much from this box but the conclusion must be that it is one of the best "Recommends" from Amazon ever!

The series somehow just hit the spit with equal part of down-to-earth sci-fi and humor with that extra spicy touch of (to me at least) new and unknown actors/actresses - just what I needed!

OK I'm a hardcore SF and Fantasy Fan. I love the ideas and concepts that Science Fiction writers explore when they do a series. Warehouse 13 has a lot going for it. An excellent and intriguing premise, good actors (I especially like CCH Pounder's potrayal of Mrs Frederic) but somehow either the writing, the directing or the editing makes it fall short.

The characters seem a little formulaic. The chemistry between the Latimer and Bering characters just appears off the mark. The bickering while funny at parts is at times overdone. The writers seemed to have imbued four main characters (Latimer, Bering, Nielson and Donovan) with high speed verbal diarrhea. There are many scenes where the characters try to fit a lot of words into their script at high speed. The worse case of this happens with Nielson character played by Saul Rubinek who indulges in several high speed mumbling conversations with himself. Sometimes these naval gazing conversations are critical to understanding the plot, while other times not, which is annoying since the viewer either listens to all of it or chooses to remain ignorant. It's a pity that the only laconic character (Mrs Frederic) only comes in as a recurring character. It's also a pity that an actor of Rubineks calibre is wasted on mediocre characterisation. Compare the Artie Nielson character to that of the Walter Bishop character in Fringe, or the Nicholas Rush character in Stargate Universe, or the Rupert Giles character in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and you can see what a missed opportunity this was.

There are also some problems with suspension of disbelief.
