WAREHOUSE 13 Season 3 Premiere – Meet Steve Jinks [Advance Review]

warehouse 13 season 3 premiere
WAREHOUSE 13 returns for its third season tonight, July 11, and I shall make two bold statements about the premiere episode right off the bat:

1) This is THE best Warehouse 13 premiere episode. Period.

2) Aaron Ashmore’s new character Steve Jinks is THE best addition to the cast so far. (Yes, I said it!)

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about some of the exciting things you can expect from the premiere episode “The New Guy” and more importantly Steve Jinks.

Last season ended with Myka leaving the Warehouse and us wondering if she would return in the new season. Well, as you might have noticed if you looked at the premiere photos, Myka is back in this episode, but not before Pete gets assigned a new partner. And that partner is, you guessed it, Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore).

The opening sequence of the episode is not only a great way to introduce Steve Jinks and his ability (he can tell when people lie), it’s also hilarious. Aaron Ashmore steals the scene with his performance and makes you fall in love immediately with this new character, who knows exactly when Artie is bluffing or telling the truth. This is probably the first time Artie told someone exactly what it is they do without that person thinking he’s crazy. It’s quite refreshing actually.

Some of the other exciting things to look forward to in the premiere:

– Pete and Steve get sent on a very mysterious case and we get to see Steve’s field abilities first hand.

– As I mentioned above, Myka makes an appearance in the episode and gets involved somehow in the cast Pete and Steve are working on.

– Ashley Williams (How I Met Your Mother) guest stars as an FBI agent who doesn’t like Pete and Steve to snoop into her case.

– Artie, Claudia and Leena have to deal with statues going wild!

– “Yeah this is Steve, my new Myka. Steve, the old Myka.” Pete introducing Myke and Steve.

– For the ladies: We get a bare-chested Pete followed by the great line: “No charge ladies!”

– H.G. Wells makes an appearance.

As I said, I think “The New Guy” is the best season premiere for the series so far. It gets you right back the middle of the Warehouse 13 action and reminds you exactly why we love this show so much.

Don’t forget to tune in to Warehouse 13 tonight, July 11, at 9pm on Syfy.
