Temporarily SciFi’d


Here’s a new show I instantly liked. Warehouse 13 premiered on the SyFy (previously SciFi) Channel three weeks ago.  Thanks to BitTorrent sites, I’m able to follow the episodes. I know it will be a while until the local SciFi picks it up. Here’s the official trailer of the show:

I very rarely venture into science fiction, even in books.  I liked this show because it is not as hardcore as I thought scifi shows would be. I did watch The X-Files but it was a long time ago and I didn’t sustain my interest.  Years after that, as you might have noticed, I dabbled into medical and crime procedurals, situational comedies, with family dramas on the side.

Warehouse 13 is light, very non-stressful but still interesting and to an extent, mysterious.  The characters are, for me, easily likable and more importantly, three episodes into the series, you’d see they all have issues. You know how much I fancy characters with issues. Hahaha!

I will follow this show until it either gets picked up for future seasons or gets dropped from the SyFy lineup. Or maybe until they start sucking which I hope won’t happen soon.

In the meantime, I will enjoy Pete, Myka, Artie and his gadgets, and the artifacts housed in Warehouse 13.  Now, I could never want a steampunk keyboard more. Maka-request nga sa supply office now that the fiscal year’s wish list is being drawn up. 😉

Since I discovered the SciFi Channel, I became interested in many of their shows. However, the local channel here (33 in Sky Cable, 31 in Destiny Cable) does not show the ones currently shown in the US so I did what most neophyte geeky girls do: download from Torrent sites. 🙂

I am catching up with Eureka. I am about to watch Sanctuary upon a friend’s suggestion. 

They’re not SyFy shows but I will also try the first episode of Torchwood: Children of Earth (without having seen ANY Doctor Who episode where it was spun off from) and continue Dollhouse. If you recall, I watched the pilot of Dollhouse but I didn’t find it good enough.  A friend suggested to give the second episode a try and maybe I’ll change my mind. So sige, I will.

I do not know if I can keep this up come September when my network shows (so my talaga, LOL) return.  Currently, House, Desperate Housewives and The Big Bang Theory lang naman.  After this fascination, I might give most cable shows a try. After all, they’re the ones railroading the awards and ratings game. Apart from the leeway to show sex scenes and let cuss words fly in every dialogue, I’ll see what really sets them apart.

Ah, this is a part of me I will not give up, ever. Ewan ko ba, hindi naman ako deprived sa TV nung bata ako. Masaya lang.
