    Who cares? The problem with critics is their belief in a "one size fits all" approach to television shows and movies. Some people will like some things while others won't and I can guarantee that a high percentage of the people who like Warehouse 13 wouldn't like the kinds of shows that this critic enjoys watching because they are different people with different interests, likes and even dislikes.

    So the critics need to take a chill pill and tone down on the rhetoric and lame reviews of TV shows and movies. Far to many good shows have gone in the dust bin because critics and some viewers don't like them. Our television industry needs to go through a revamp which is why I support Hulu's new product called Hulu Plus. It's exactly what we need to get rid of these lame attempts to impose a "one size fits all" approach to television shows.

    I should be able to watch shows I like on demand and the producers and creators of those shows should know exactly how many people are watching them instead of the stupid Nielsen rating system that doesn't gauge real interest.

    I agree with Scott's criticisms. Despite that, I still watch the show, and I'd be thrilled if they'd improve it (especially the writing.)

    I agree with ya'll. Great, escaping, fun, entertainment. Pete is goofy? Heck yeah. He's hilarious and works great with ...the young red headed sassy girl. They are very entertaining and help ofset miss "I got a bad botux in my lips job".
    I love the series and am waiting for the next season. Between Merlin and 13, I'm getting my fix! Critics need to lose their jobs.

    The show is perfectly fine entertainment,

    I don'tnot undersrtand going off your rocker to hate a show so much,

    Pierce even complete mischaractizes the characters,
    they are not "dopey" and "driven", and NEVER were,

    the corcct characterization would be: he "goes by gut instinct, she is by the book,

    as a TRUE big fan of SciFi,

    i find the show entertaining,

    apparently, Pierce has a completely different expectation of waht the show should be,

    one he doed ever make known,

    but what can you expect from someone who thought BattleSate Galactica wss greatest scifi ever,

    even though it was reall just overwrought contrived confusing pointless drama, with hardly any science at all.

    I mean really, an advanced society capable of building human like robots and traveling among the stars,

    has starships that look like a WW2 sub,

    an they are repeating all the same nonsense in Caprica,

    by creating pointless contrived unrealistic dramatic situations after another, just to drag it all out,

    and create psuedo intellectual drama, so full of self importance that it apparently fools critics.

    After reading the tripe that you put out called a "critique", I find it critically boring and repetitious. As pointed out by itsjustme some of us do enjoy escaping reality for a while even if it is nonsense. It makes what we have to deal with in real life a little easier, by allowing us to laugh at the idiocy of shows such as Warehouse 13. I for one enjoy the show, and think that you should find better use of your computer than writing the same old empty rhetoric that usually accompanies the previews of either movies or tv shows. In other words I am instantly reminded as to why I don't read your column or the columns of other so called "experts" who waste not only our time but the space into which they insert their useless information.

    It's Science Fiction, for crying out loud. It's not supposed to make sense. (Although when George Orwell wrote 1984 in 1949, it was supposed to be Science Fiction, but look at it now.)

    Please let those of that enjoy these shows, enjoy them.
