Each episode makes explicit reference to established facts in the other series. From those three episodes, it's clear that Warehouse13 and Eureka inhabit the same universe.
In S1E5: Never Let Me Go, Lindsay Wagner reprises her role from Warehouse13 as Dr. Vanessa Calder, although no mention of the Warehouse is made (albeit for the obvious reason that it's a secret). As for actors in Eureka or Warehouse13 appearing in the other series as another character, that's because there's a limited amount of acting talent in Vancouver, and Eureka and Warehouse13 use the same casting directors, so when they see someone they like for a minor role, they're probably going to call them back before a casting call.
), Stargaze (Brandy Medford played a TOK'Ra in SG1 and a planet-of-the-week inhabitant in Atlantis as an example, there are many more), the list goes on. Out of universe: Warehouse13 and Eureka are both produced by the same company, and perhaps there's some synergy going on with casting.
Global dynamics is the main research facility in eureka, where Fargo works. There is nothing complicated about their coexistence, two government operated depth both dealing with some freaky shit.
But shortly into the first episode, they had a person show up whom I immediately recognized from Eureka. So when he showed up in charge of a warehouse for artifacts with powers, I figured it might have been as the same character.
Sail Ruined who plays Artie in WH13 Also plays Carl Carlson in Eureka who was absorbed into the Artifact, long before WH13 was introduced I to Eureka So, I've been watching Warehouse13, and I've seen at least 3 episodes with actors from Eureka in the show.
What this an oversight, or is there some in-universe explanation for why the previous actors were acting differently? Well, dreams can come true, and it didn't take some real-world versions of the strange devices created by Eureka's scientists or those discovered in the bowels of Warehouse13 to make it happen.
This triggers a seemingly sentient computer virus that sends the Warehouse into lockdown and traps the team inside. Warehouse13's Claudia Donovan (Allison Scarlatti) pays a visit to Eureka, hoping to see some amazing technological wonders.
Working with Sheriff Carter (Colin Ferguson) and Fargo, Claudia has to help solve the mystery before the strange anomalies have deadly consequences...particularly for newcomer Dr. Grant (James Calls). Warehouse13 follows two Secret Service agents who find themselves abruptly transferred to a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government.
Eureka seems like any other cozy, Pacific Northwest town, but is actually a secret community of geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research. Eureka stars Colin Ferguson, Sally Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Erica Terra, Neil Grays ton, Ni all Matter, James Calls and features Gordon Hanson.
Guest stars this season include Will Wheaton, Jamie Kennedy, Jaime Ray Newman and Matt Fewer. The Warehouse13 / Eureka crossover sounds less Crisis on Infinite Earths than Spider-Man accidentally wandering into the Baxter Building while Reed Richards is working on some ridiculous and dangerous experiment; Eureka‘s Douglas Fargo guests on Warehouse13‘s August 3rd episode, and then W13‘s Claudia Donovan returns to favor by guesting on Eureka‘s August 6th episode, but without any seeming shared storyline (While the nerd in me appreciates the shared universe aspect of this, I wonder if there’ll be any comment about the three Eureka actors who played different characters in W13‘s first season last year?).
Of course, the Sanctuary cast would have to deal with some non-CGI’ed sets for a change, so I’m not sure how that would work out for them. Eureka /Haven Safe’s secret genius town and Safe’s upcoming secret supernatural (and based on a Stephen King novella, which has to earn it some points) town, both with law enforcement professionals from outside having to deal with fitting in and the locals.
But now that we know that BSG ultimately resulted in “our” Earth, and that SGU takes place in a relatively contemporary “our” universe, would it be so impossible for the Destiny to discover some long-lost ancient Ceylon artifact floating out in the middle of nowhere…? It's geek love at first sight when real-life best friends Allison Scarlatti (Warehouse13's Claudia Donovan) and Neil Grays ton (Eureka's Doug Fargo) visit each other's shows this week, starting with Tuesday's episode of Warehouse (9/8c, Safe).
“ Crossing Over is the fifth episode of the fourth season of the Safe channel show Eureka. Claudia Donovan pays a visit to Eureka, hoping to see some amazing technological wonders.
Working with Sheriff Carter and Fargo, Claudia has to help solve the mystery before the strange anomalies have deadly consequences...particularly for newcomer Dr. Grant. While created deliberately as a bridge device, Eureka's authorities decided it was too dangerous to be kept in town.
American science fiction television series The series posits that there have been a dozen incarnations of the warehouse before the present-day 13th in South Dakota.
Warehouse 1 was built between 336–323 BC on the orders of Alexander the Great as a place to keep artifacts obtained by war. After Alexander died, the warehouse was moved to Egypt, establishing the practice of locating the warehouse in the most powerful empire of the day, under the reasoning that it will be best defended there.
Egypt's Ptolemaic rulers appointed a group of people, known as the Regents, to oversee the warehouse and act as its first “agents” and collectors of artifacts. Warehouse 2 lasted until the Roman conquest of Egypt.
Other warehouses throughout history include: Warehouse 3 in Western Roman Empire (Italy), Warehouse 4 in Runic Empire until the death of Attila the Hun, Warehouse 5 in Byzantine Empire, Warehouse 6 in Cambodia under the Khmer Empire, Warehouse 7 in the Mongol Empire under Genghis Khan, Warehouse 8 in Germany during the Holy Roman Empire (1260–1517), Warehouse 9 in the Ottoman capital of Constantinople until the death of Suleiman the Magnificent, Warehouse 10 in Mughal Empire (India), Warehouse 11 in the Russian Empire under the Romanov Dynasty (the 1812 Napoleonic War with Russia was an attempt to seize control of Warehouse 11), and Warehouse 12 in the United Kingdom from 1830 until 1914. It was during the time of Warehouse 11 that the Regents began to employ agents to gather and protect artifacts.
This practice continued under Warehouse 12, with British agents traveling further and further searching for artifacts to add to the collection. The next move brought the warehouse to South Dakota in the United States.
Unlike previous warehouses, which were placed in the centers of their empires, Warehouse13 was located in a remote area of South Dakota to hide it. The first Warehouse13 was built in 1898, but the structure burned down because of an insufficient understanding of how to safely store artifacts.
The move to the rebuilt and current Warehouse13 occurred in 1914 at the onset of World War I. The warehouse was designed by Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and M. C. Escher, while the warehouse's expansion joints were created by Albert Einstein.
Originally, artifacts are items connected to some historical or mythological figure or event. Each artifact has been imbued with something from its creator, user, or a major event in history.
Some are well known: Studio 54's Disco ball ; Lewis Carroll's looking glass, which contains an evil entity called Alice that can possess other people's bodies (Myra in Season 1 episode “Duped”), leaving their minds trapped in the mirror; and Edgar Allan Poe's pen and a volume of his writing, which can make whatever the user writes a reality. Some are not: Lizzie Borden had a mirrored compact that today compels users to kill their loved ones with an axe; Marilyn Monroe owned a brush that now turns its user's hair platinum blonde, which Myra once used on herself while under the influence of W. C. Fields juggling balls that induce drunkenness and blackouts.
Others may have humorous effects, such as Ivan Pavlov's bell, which will call any dog to you but causes excessive drooling for 24 hours, and a magic kettle that grants wishes but produces a ferret if the wish is impossible. The artifacts react with electricity and can be neutralized by immersion in a mysterious purple goo or placed inside a neutralizing reflective bag both produced by Global Dynamics, a research laboratory from Warehouse13's sister show, Eureka.
Warehouse agents are provided by the host country of the warehouse, in this case from various government agencies (such as the Secret Service, FBI, ATF, CDC, and DEA, etc.). Agents of Warehouse13 in particular were chosen either for their above-average intelligence (Artie is an expert NSA code breaker, Myra has an acetic memory and a wealth of encyclopedic knowledge, Claudia and H.G.
Wells are both expert inventors) or because they possess a kind of extra normal ability (Pete and Mrs. Frederic both receive “vibes” regarding situations; Lena can read peoples' auras; and Jinks has the ability to tell when a person is lying). Eddie McClintock as Pete Lat timer is a “rule-bender” Secret Service Agent, now assigned to Warehouse 13.
He has been able to pick up “vibes”, both good and bad, since he was a child. The series frequently makes references to his being a recovering alcoholic who already had been sober for more than eight years when the series started.
Joanne Kelly as Myra Bering, once a rising star in the Secret Service, is a by-the-book agent. She has a scrupulous eye for detail and possesses an acetic memory.
Reference to a former partner that ended in tragedy is frequently made, such as in the season one episode “Regrets”. Saul Ruined as Artie Nielsen is the Special Agent in Charge at Warehouse 13.
A former cryptographer and code breaker for the NSA, he has spent over 30 years at the Warehouse and is very knowledgeable about artifacts, both in the Warehouse and out in the world. Gentle Williams as Lena (seasons 1–4; guest season 5), the proprietor of the bed and breakfast in nearby Univalve, where the team lives.
Simon Reynolds as Daniel Dickinson (season 1; guest season 2), Pete and Myra's former boss in Washington, D.C. Allison Scarlatti as Claudia Donovan (seasons 2–5; recurring season 1) is described as a “young, hip, brilliant techno-wiz” who earns a job at Warehouse 13 after discovering too many of its secrets. She can hack into almost any computer network and occasionally modifies artifacts to suit her needs.
Aaron Ashore as Steve Jinks (seasons 4–5; recurring season 3) was an ATF agent before being recruited to Warehouse 13 for his ability to know if people are lying. In Emily Lake he is killed by Marcus Diamond (Sasha Ruiz) on orders of Walter Sykes (Anthony Michael Hall).
In season 4, he is resurrected by Claudia using the metronome. Ashore was promoted to series regular beginning with the episode “Personal Effects”.
Global Dynamics researcher Douglas Fargo (played by Neil Grays ton) from Eureka traveled to South Dakota to update Warehouse 13's computer system in the Warehouse 13 episode 13 .1”. Warehouse 13 computer wizard Claudia Donovan (played by Allison Scarlatti) subsequently traveled to the town of Eureka, Oregon to check out the technological marvels at Global Dynamics in the Eureka episode “Crossing Over”.
Fargo again appeared in the Warehouse 13 episode Don't Hate the Player when Claudia, Lat timer, and Bering traveled to Palo Alto, California to find Douglas beta testing a virtual reality simulator with the aid of a dangerous artifact. Dr. Vanessa Calder (played by Lindsay Wagner), who appeared in the Warehouse 13 episodes “For the Team”, “Buried”, “Love Sick” and “Endless Terror” as a physician and love interest of Artie, traveled to Benton, Pennsylvania, to investigate a series of deaths in which the victims suffered massive organ failures in the Alphas episode “Never Let Me Go”.
Hugo Miller spent some time in the town of Eureka, departing with Douglas Fargo at the end of episode 13 .1”; he returns in “Love Sick”, commenting that, “every week something seems to go 'boom'!” Warehouse13 did import characters from other TV series, but would often cast pairs of actors who had worked together on other series as single-episode characters.
Episode 6, “Burnout”, drew 4.4 million viewers, setting the record for Safe's highest rated show. It was renewed October 5, 2010, for a third season of 13 episodes, which began July 11, 2011.
It was renewed for a fourth season August 11, 2011, which began July 23, 2012. On May 16, 2013, Safe renewed the series for a six-episode fifth and final season, which aired its series finale on May 19, 2014.
Warehouse13's series premiere was the most-watched cable show on American television that night. With 3.5 million viewers, it was also Safe's third best premiere ever, behind Stargaze Atlantis (2004) and Eureka (2006).
Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly gave it a negative review in July 2009, describing it as an “unholy cross between The X-Files, Bones, and Raiders of the Lost Ark.” In July 2010, Tucker amended his opinion, stating that Warehouse improved as it went along” and “grew more riveting”; he subsequently gave the show a rating of “B”.
In 2010, the series' composer, Edward Rogers, was nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Original Main Title Theme Music. Warehouse13 has received seven 2012 Portal Award nominations, including the best television series, the best actor (Eddie McClintock), the best actress (Joanne Kelly), best supporting actor (Saul Ruined), best supporting actress (Allison Scarlatti), the best special guest (Jaime Murray as Helena G. Wells), and best episode (“Emily Lake”).
It was Eddie McClintock's third straight nomination and the second nomination for Saul Ruined and Allison Scarlatti. As of September 2020, Warehouse13 scored 82 percent among all critics (60 percent among top critics) and 87 percent with audience members on Rotten Tomatoes.
