A few weeks ago I posted about how television had affected my life and about three shows that I adored that were in jeopardy of not returning for another season.
Well, the fat lady has sung and we now have the results.
Southland and Smash both won’t be returning for another season. Smash wasn’t a surprise, but Southland hurt a bit. In TV land, nothing is worse than a some major cliffhangers that will never be resolved. (character death anyone?)
But the show that I was most concerned about was a recent addition to my stable of viewing, one that I’ve become quite passionate about, Warehouse 13.
I won’t lie, Tumblr sucked me in (I blame anamatics and racethewind10 in particular) thanks to their brilliant work with Bering and Wells. But as I watched the show I became enamored with all of the characters and the atmosphere the show created. So much so I managed to pull several of my pals into the show this past year as well.
Stories about friends, family, mistakes, forgiveness, redemption-all told in a way that reminded me of my all time favorite show-Buffy the Vampire Slayer-because nothing had compelled me into a fandom quite like that since that show ended.
We are very lucky to get a six episode wrap up season, very lucky, that will hopefully give the fans a great send off (and maybe a little Bering and Wells as cannon). And as a fan of many shows that didn’t get an ending or one that was unsatisfactory I’m quite glad.
I guess I’m just feeling a bit sentimental tonight and wanted to take a moment to say thanks for a great run and a great show.
I’m going to watch the hell out of the final six episodes.
So here’s to you Warehouse 13. Here’s a bit of one of my favorite bands, The National, with a song I’m sure you’ll all recognize.
