* GeniusBonus: In "[[ChristmasEpisode Secret Santa]]", Claudia offhandedly asks how many piano tuners there could be in the Philadelphia area. This is a reference to the archetypical example of a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermi_problem Fermi problem]], a form of estimation based on multiplying estimates to obtain a close approximation of an otherwise incomputible answer. The classic Fermi problem is 'How many piano tuners are there in Chicago?'.
** Arguably, the series as a whole; [[Tropers/MortTheGhost this troper]] has often figured out what the artifact is before it is revealed in-show from information remembered from history class.

* UnnecessaryMakeover: In "Age before Beauty", Myka gets a makeover to act as an UndercoverModel, but if anything it makes her 'less' attractive, going from [[https://remotelyentertaining.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/warehouse13-1-large-sftv83.jpg?w=1075 appealing]] to [[http://www.mediaoutsiders.com/syfy/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/NUP_139176_0385_jpg-550x364.jpg incredibly plastic]] and generic. Going by the reactions of Pete, this is supposed to be an improvement.

* AnticlimaxBoss: Due to the final season being cut short, Paracelsus's fate is wrapped up very quickly in the first episode. Makes all the buildup beforehand kind of pointless.

to:

* AnticlimaxBoss: Due Paracelsus was built up as being the most dangerous threat the Warehouse has ever faced, a rogue Caretaker with incredible powers, extensive knowledge of how to use Artifacts in combination to unlock new abilities, and zero ethical concerns. Unfortunately, due to the final season being cut short, Paracelsus's his fate is was wrapped up very quickly disappointingly quick in the first episode. Makes all the buildup beforehand kind of pointless.episode.

* SpiritualSuccessor: It's also very similar to Syfy's earlier miniseries ''Series/TheLostRoom''. As well as ''FridayThe13thTheSeries''.

*** At least Fargo's visit to the Warehouse was a ''thematic'' crossover, involving a fusion of futuristic technology with artifact magic. Claudia's visit to Eureka was basically pointless. The crisis does not involve an artifact going out of control, she doesn't use any artifacts to save the day, and there's really no point to her being there at all, other than some amusing sexual chemistry between her and Fargo...which is left dangling anyway since she never appears again. They could have replaced her character with some random old girlfriend of Fargo's that we've never seen before and ''nothing would change''.

Fargo dismisses Claudia's suggestion that an artifact could be responsible for the trouble stating that "everything in Eureka can be explained with science". This makes absolutely no sense as he has personally witnessed artifacts working and there is absolutely no reason one couldn't end up in Eureka.

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Myka quitting at the end of season 2. Sorry, ''Warehouse 13'', we've done this dance before with ''{{Eureka}}''. You're not going to do it. In the first episode of season 3, she comes back at the end, after helping out with the investigation which just happens to feature a Myka PlotTailoredToTheParty. Her apparant replacement, Steve Jinks, gets to stay though.

* NarmCharm: Claudia and Claire bond over..."When I Grow Up" by Music/{{Garbage}}. It works, somehow, though.

** "Savage Seduction" has the crew pulled into a [[SoapWithinAShow Spanish language telenovella]], which is just as melodramatic as you would expect. It's glorious.
