Did You Know?


Chronologically, this episode should fit between Insatiable and Emily Lake. As with the previous season's holiday episode, SyFy ran it out of order so it would air in December. See more »


Alternate Claudia states several times that she wants to access the Warehouse to retrieve the Rheticus compass and free Joshua from the dimensional vortex; however, that artifact was actually trapped with Joshua in its original appearance. See more »


Artie Nielsen: [inspecting a row of bonsai trees] James always loved these damn things.

Great Christmas special
7 December 2011 | by mam13143See all my reviews

I gave this show 9 out of 10 only because I think nothing is really perfect, but this special is as good as it gets in itself, and as it relates to the series. Nice storyline, good intertwining with all the Warehouse characters and villain, and excellent production values. The special effects are prevalent and carried out effectively. The story is nicely thought out so that it's not a typical series Christmas special (a standard story with some Christmas balls and decorations thrown in). The interaction of the main characters is, as usual, excellent. Generally a very well done Christmas special. Highly recommended especially for fans of the series.
