Warehouse 13 Collects Themselves A Watcher

Last season of Warehouse 13, or the first half of this season, or whatever the hell they're calling it, wasn't very good. After three enjoyable seasons, the last ten episodes were easily the weakest they've done, and bordered on embarrassing at times. Hopefully the new season, which premieres this coming Monday (and which I haven't made up my mind if I'll be reviewing or not), will be an improvement over the last.

And they've gotten off to a good start. Along side the returning main cast, and recurring actors Jamie Murray and Kate Mulgrew, is yet another slew of genre and sci-fi stars, to add to the already impressive number of guests the show (which films in Toronto and Montreal) has procured. This season will feature Polly Walker, Enrico Colantoni, Missi Pyle, Joel Grey, Nora Zehetner, Kelly Hu, Steve Valentine, and former Buffy and Merlin (and most recently the best thing in Neverwhere) star Anthony Stewart Head, as the villainous Paracelsus. Head will appear in the final three episodes of the season, presumably in a role similar to the one Anthony Michael Hall played a couple seasons ago.

I was very on the fence about WH13 after last year, but Head's involvement is probably enough to push the show back into my favour. Hopefully, it lives up to that favour.
