Added DiffLines:

* 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.

*** 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.

* AssPull: A number of points in the final season, as well as Season 4's final few episodes leading up to it. Notably, Claudia having a sister who was effected by an artifact that Artie dealt with (which needlessly convolutes her backstory), Myka and Pete being 'in love', Artie's son, Claudia no longer wanting to be Caretaker (which seems to get resolved off-screen).



** The CGI of the show's earlier seasons, particularly whenever they show them near fire. [[SpecialEffectsFailure Its...distractingly bad]].



* SeasonalRot: Season 5 isn't held in very high regard with the fandom, thanks to being only six episodes long, not having a very engaging storyline, rendering Myka's [[spoiler:cancer]] storyline from the previous season totally meaningless and forcing Pete and Myka together at the last minute. Even the showrunners weren't happy with how things turned out, as ExecutiveMeddling forced their hand on many of the issues mentioned.

** Also how they wrote H.G. off the show -- despite her and Myka being a FanPreferredCouple for a large number of fans, she gets shipped off to a marriage in suburbia, hitched to a guy we've never heard of before.

** Also how they wrote H.G. off the show -- despite her and Myka being a FanPreferredCouple for a large number of fans, she gets shipped off to a marriage in suburbia, hitched to a guy we've never heard of before. They do mention in the finale that her and the boyfriend broke up and that she's now dating an unidentified woman though.


Added DiffLines:

** The finale presents us with several scenarios where each one of the agents proved themselves (Claudia stopping an invasion of tap dancers, Myka going undercover in a Desperate Housewives-like suberbia and fighting ninjas, Steve, HG, and Claudia saving Artie from a tiny clock in his heart, etc)...but we only see flashbacks to their resolutions. While it at least avoided being just a clipshow or anything, it was somewhat grating considering how each one could have made for an interesting episode. In particular, when one realizes that in Steve's case, its the only time him and HG actually come close to interacting.


Added DiffLines:

** Steve's reconciliation with his mother, and his breakdown over the fact he still can't come to terms with his sister's death, or get past his anger at her killer. Damn, Aaron Ashmore can make you cry.


Added DiffLines:

** All of the main characters, when you look at the backstories we're given about them. They all have dead lovers/siblings/parents, broken old romances, and a general issue with making friends thanks to all of them having some social issues, and that's without the alcoholism, mental institution, troubled family life, or BlessedWithSuck superpowers. It makes them bonding together so tightly all the more heartwarming.

** Larry 'Noodle' Newley from the Christmas special is also played by a pre-''Series/Arrow'' Paul Blackthorne (Quinten Lance).

** She reappears, without explanation, in the ChristmasEpisode.
*** WordOfGod is that the ChristmasEpisode is set out of sequence, between "Merge With Caution" and "Vendetta." (Though one wonders where all that snow went so fast...)
**** No doubt the ChristmasEpisode was simply delayed to air during Christmas season, anyway.
** The jury is obviously still out on this, but Aaron Ashmore has been hired to play Myka's replacement in Season 3. Whether or not it takes, though, is obviously up in the air for now.
*** 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. Looks like Jinks is staying for a while at least maybe.
