Warehouse 13 Season Finale Tonight!

Warehouse 13

This was most definitely the summer of cable when it came to original programming.  Networks like USA and SyFy slaughtered their older broadcast siblings in not only ratings, but also quality.  One of the big winners was Warehouse 13.  The new original series was launched by SyFy right around the time that they actually became SyFy, leaving the plainly original SciFi name behind.

Sci Fi geeks everywhere created an uproar over the new name and even the way they went about getting the rights to the name.  Many out there, critics too, claimed Warehouse 13 was just mindless zone-out style entertainment…Then the ratings started rolling out.  W13 was a hit.  A big hit.

We are proud to say that DVR Life was not one of those  that called Warehouse 13 mindless.  We dug the quirky artifacts and love-hate relations from the beginning.  And so here we are now.  The fall season is taking over TV schedules and the first season finale of Warehouse 13 airs tonight.  Don’t worry, though, as the show has already been renewed for a second season to air in summer 2010.  Here’s a quick peek at tonight’s season finale:

Warehouse 13 Sneak Peek

Warehouse 13

We’ve got a bit of a sneak peek at next week’s episode of Warehouse 13 on SyFy.  The episode is entitled Breakdown and it looks like the breakdown may be of the warehouse itself!  Really interested to see them trek through the “Dark Vault”, especially when things are going haywire!

If you’ve been missing Warehouse 13, you’re summer was not as great as it could have been!  Don’t fret, though, you have plenty of time to catch up via Hulu before the season 1 finale on September 22nd.  We’re looking forward to season 2 next summer, too.

Warehouse 13 airs each Tuesday at 9pm on SyFy.

SyFy Renews Warehouse 13

Warehouse 13

Variety reported a little while ago that SyFy has picked up playful summer hit Warehouse 13 for a second season.  If you follow @syfy on twitter, it’s probably no big surprise due to their weekly tweet boasting of killer ratings.  Variety remarked that the series has been pulling a near average of 3.7 million viewers each week, which makes it SyFy’s biggest hit thusfar.  There’s even mention of it beating out Battlestar Galactica’s first season.  And 50% of the audience is female.  Imagine that!

I also think it’s kinda interesting that their biggest hit came at the same time as their name and brand change.  Perhaps, despite all the booing and hissing made by sci-fi kids world-wide, those network people actually know what they’re doing.  I wonder if Warehouse 13 would have done so well had it debuted on Sci-Fi and not SyFy?

The second season is set to comprise 13 episodes and air next summer.

Warehouse 13 is in the midst of it’s first season with new episodes airing at 9pm Tuesdays on SyFy.

It’s a been pretty dynamic summer when it comes to television. Both premium and basic cable networks have packed nearly every night of the week with some great, quality programming.

At DVR Life headquarters, it’s be a season rather thick with sci-fi.  The brits have been rocking the genre this year.  We managed to cram the first two seasons of BBC’s Torchwood in just in time to catch Torchwood: Children of Earth, we’re also digging BBC’s latest sci-fi series, Being Human, and caught up with Doctor Who in time for the new movie BBC America treated us to in July and mourned the cliff hanger ending to final season of ITV’s Primeval.  Syfy’s newest scripted offering Warehouse 13, is a quirky fun time and the return of their much beloved Eureka have given us our dose of stateside sci-fi while Defying Gravity is a sci-fi lite multi-national effort between ABC, the brits and Canada’s CTV.

For our teen drama fix, we’ve been turning to ABC Family’s (I know, right? Who would have thought) shows Make It Or Break It, while their new comedy 10 Things I Hate About You has given us a few good laughs.  Looking for action, adventure and smart talk?  USA’s been ruling the ratings with In Plain Sight, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Burn Notice.  Newbie Royal Pains has been tearing it up on the Nielsen charts, too.

We’ll stop here.  We could keep going on and on – there’s plenty to say about HBO’s new Sunday lineup, as well TNT’s wins and misses.  There’s just way too much great summer fare this year.
