Culture: “Warehouse 13” still needs a little more to push it over the edge

Almost, but not quite, there. We have to admit that we’re still on the fence about "Warehouse 13." On one hand, its premise – that the Secret Service maintains a storage facility for objects like Indiana Jones’ lost Ark – is pretty darn nifty. The fact that the talented Jane Espenson (writer/producer on "Buffy," "Angel," and "BSG") is serving as the primary driving force as co-creator/writer revs our nerdy hearts too. …
