Tricia Helfer guest stars on next week's Warehouse 13

I really enjoyed the two-hour Warehouse 13 pilot. It was quite fun. Next week another Syfy (remember that small "f" in the name, everyone) veteran guest stars. It's Tricia Helfer, and from this brief clip below she seems to be playing the type of character she played on Burn Notice last season.

Warehouse 13: Pilot (series premiere)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 8th 2009 4:35PM
Warehouse 13(S01E01) The creators titled this "Pilot," but I'm going to dub it "Another Reason I Want Brothers to Fail on FOX." CCH Pounder is such a talent I really prefer her on a good show. With Battlestar Galactica gone, there's going to be a lot of scrutiny on the network's new offerings, and while this doesn't seem to have the depth and complexity of BSG, it's a perfect companion to shows like Eureka and Sanctuary.

It even channels a lot of the latter in that it deals with ancient mystical forces, albeit in the form of artifacts instead of creatures. It also has a huge facility to house and protect them, and the world from them. To take it one step further, CCH Pounder's Mrs. Frederic may be much older than she appears, and my money's out on Leena having a similar genetic disposition and possibly being Mrs. Frederic's daughter. These mysteries are barely touched on in the pilot which means there's layers. But how does the show stack up on the surface?

Eddie McClintock Talks 'Warehouse 13' and Looking Like David Boreanaz

by Kim Potts, posted Jul 7th 2009 6:00AM
Most TV fans will know Eddie McClintock from somewhere (Noel's brother on 'Felicity'? Gabby and Carlos' adoptive baby's daddy on 'Desperate Housewives'? David Boreanaz's rival on 'Bones'?). The familiar actor talks to AOL TV about his new SyFy series 'Warehouse 13' (July 7, 9PM ET), in which he plays a Secret Service agent who's sent (along with a prickly but attractive fellow agent played by 'Vanished''s Joanne Kelly) to South Dakota to work in a top-secret government warehouse.

McClintock dishes about how he hopes 'Warehouse 13' will be the breakout hit on his lengthy TV resume, and (speaking of David Boreanaz) how he's often the subject of mistaken identity involving a pair of TV hunks. -- By Kimberly Potts

So what is Warehouse 13 all about, anyway?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 30th 2009 2:27PM
I think we can all agree that 94% of all Sci-Fi Channel original movies are really lame. But their original series are usually pretty good, and Warehouse 13 is no exception. This new preview below gives the most extensive look yet at what the show is about, who the characters are, and what their new assignment is. Two words: "America's Attic."

Check the link above. You can ask caretaker Artie about the show, which starts July 7.

Some Caprica and Warehouse 13 casting news

by Keith McDuffee, posted May 6th 2008 11:40AM
Paula MalcomsonEarly last month I posted a casting call sheet for the upcoming Battlestar Galactica prequel show, Caprica. In that list was a call for Amanda Graystone, a "surgeon with a volatile streak to her" who is "something of a double agent." Well, you can scratch that one off the list of openings, as Paula Malcomson (Trixie of Deadwood and Jerri of John From Cincinnati) has been cast in the role.

My interest in Caprica hinges on how Battlestar Galactica concludes; will I really want to know more about how it all began? I could see them putting us in a place that has us craving for more, though it's likely Caprica is meant to stand on its own and without having to follow too many rules set by the BSG events. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Cloris Leachman joins NBC comedy

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 3rd 2006 11:32AM
cloris leachman; nbcCloris Leachman has agreed to step into the middle of an untitled NBC sitcom about two brothers "on opposite sides of the law", who live next door to each other. She'll play the mother of the law man and the con man. The brothers will be played by Eddie McClintock (Crumbs) and Craig Bierko.

Leachman recently won an Emmy in 2002 as Grandma Ida on Malcolm in the Middle. And, in my humble opinion, she played a marvelous wine-soaked, ex-jazz singer in Spanglish. And, who can forget Young Frankenstein? Or Phyllis? Let's hope this new comedy gives her some good material. This lady is a comedic genius.

Crumbs on hiatus

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 18th 2006 11:17AM
crumbs fred savageCrumbs' two week hiatus just got extended indefinitely by ABC. The new Fred Savage comedy was off the schedule during the Olympics but now it doesn't appear to be returning anytime soon. Instead, ABC will stretch next week's episode of Dancing with the Stars to two hours. The network has scheduled movies, Sweet Home Alabama and Bringing Down the House, on the following Thursdays, March 2 and 9. Then, ABC launches the Simon Cowell competition American Inventor and, starting March 23, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition comes to Thursdays.

It's actually a bit of a surprise that Crumbs is shelved. It's the highest-rated comedy on ABC these days, even ahead of The George Lopez Show. There are eight episodes of Crumbs that are left to air so maybe we'll see it back on the schedule this summer. Or on iTunes.
