Warehouse 13

Harriet Tubman is Better Than You.

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON 10/02/09

Let me say this in no uncertain terms: Harriet Tubman is better than you. Harriet Tubman is better than me. She represents what's best about America: She was born in to an utterly terrible life, with all the cards stacked against her, and she made it better for herself, and then, not content to rest at that, she went back and made things better for threescore other people directly, and hundreds more indirectly. Harriet Tubman represents not only our shame, but our glory, and our amazing (if intermitent) ability to synthesize the two.

The idea that this goony show [Warehouse 13] would diminish her accomplishments by attributing them to a magical geegaw, thereby saying "Oh, yeah, there was no personal risk to her whatsoever, aside from maybe stubbed toes" was demeaning. Things like that should be off-limits to a show like this, out of common decency.

REVIEWERS NEEDED FOR SEVERAL NEW SHOWS (UPDATED)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Torchwood started its long-delayed 4th season last week, Warehouse 13 returned for its 3rd season last night, and "Alphas" premiered. As it happens, none of our people have access to "Stars," so we don't have a way to review Torchwood, though we really want to. W-13 we kinda' don't give a crap about, and have no plans to review unless someone wants to step up. Probably we *should* cover Alphas at least for a little bit, but we're suffering a manpower shortage at present, and probably won't be able to do so.

First of all, sorry for the delay. I’m basically off duty this week, and, well, you know. Stuff happens. Or in this case stuff fails to happen, I guess. In any event, this isn’t my normal beat, so bear with me if I miss a few subtle points.

Owing to blinkered philistine pig-ignorance* on my part, I missed last week’s episode of W-13 (Basically forgot it was on), thus we now join my review in mid-cliffhanger, with no real idea how we got here.

Neorandomizer can’t be with you tonight, so I’m pinch hitting for him. Just as a caveat, this is the first episode of Warehouse 13 I’ve watched since the season premier. Doubtless I’m going to miss some details here and there. If I blow anything too egregious, sound off in the comments.
