A VIEW TO A KILL

Tibb

There may be no man on this planet who has carried a heavier burden than Air Force brigadier general Paul Tibbets, WWII pilot of the Enola Gay, which is the first aircraft in history to drop an atomic bomb. In the world of Warehouse 13, the binoculars used by Tibbets – featured in the third-season episode “Shadows” – were infused with atomic-bomb properties of their own. The user would look through them, focus both the lenses and his or her anger at the target, and in a flash, the target would be eviscerated, leaving behind only the scorched imprint of a shadow.  VIP Fan Auctions is now offering the Tibbets binoculars – which have the words “Enola Gay” and “God Forgive Us” engraved on the sides – featured on-screen in the episode. Created by the Warehouse 13 props department for use in production, this ominous prop comes with a leather case and shows signs of use. Click here to see photos and to get in on the bidding of this piece of TV lore today. And keep them pointed away from people!

CALIFORNIA COOL

cali

Diehard viewers of The X-Files’ conspiracy-chasing FBI agent Fox Mulder might think aliens have had to reprogram David Duchovny to play Californication’s debaucherous author Hank Moody, but seven seasons on the Showtime series has only cemented Duchovny’s reputation as an incredibly versatile leading man. Part man-child, part devoted father, Hank is a complicated figure, and his career as a successful writer provides him with enough time on his hands to get into trouble. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering fans of Californication an opportunity to claim a piece of the hit series – including the shirt and pants Duchovny wore on-screen during the first-season episode “Absinthe Makes the heart Grow Finder.” Click here for photos and more information – or visit VIP’s Californication page to see all of the available items from the series!

Warehouse 13 Wishes for the Finale Season

Warehouse 13 CastUnfortunately after five seasons, Warehouse 13 is coming to an end. The final six episodes are a long time coming, since the last episode aired was July 8th, 2013. So many shows get cancelled and are left to scramble to wrap up  the series, but in the case of Warehouse 13, Syfy is doing it right, with the fans in mind, by letting the writers end the story with a hopefully satisfying ending. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about the show ending, so all we can do is have fun with the last six episodes and hope this series as well as Eureka did. Here is a list tvequals.com put together of four wishes for the final season.

The first wish is to not kill anyone off. The writer would rather have them send the characters sent to another dimension then killed off in the slight hope that they could come back and continue the show. Even wishing that they cure Myka’s cancer; they have saved the world several times how hard could it be to save one.

The second wish is make Claudia Donovan the caretaker of Warehouse 13. Claudia’s main foe Paracelsus will give her a run for her money, but she will triumph. Although, Claudia has a sister named Claire, who is apparently very dangerous and the writer expects her to have a major role in the upcoming season.

The third wish is they stick together. They are a team and need each other to succeed and it would help to imagine they are still out there saving the world. The last wish and most expected is the zaniness. With zaniness brings the life out of the characters and them all play well off of each other.

TVequals.com’s last request is more great artifacts, more trouble and a lot of snide comments. Stayed tuned for the final season starting April 14th at 9PM ET it should be a season you should definitely not miss.

Check out the full article here and please add your own wishes to the list.
