There I was, innocently minding my own business in a country full of polar bears and moose hide bikinis, when a wormhole appeared and sucked me into tumblr. Now I've fallen into Bering and Wells and I can't get up.

When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.
She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.
She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.
Girl is 50 years old.
FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.
fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this.
You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half.
Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium.
This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks.
Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS.
she kicks ass like a coursing river
with all the force of a great typhoon

Warehouse 13 is back for just six episodes, and apparently a season’s worth of plot developments are being smushed into a short space. But even accounting for that, this show is feeling… weird this season. Like, none of the characters seem quite right. And the characters were this show’s strength. Spoilers ahead…
in which io9 agrees with everyone that has a brain over this newly-minted character atrocity.
Seriously, read this. This piece is dead-on, and it’s been written by a long-time Warehouse 13 watcher/supporter of the show, who has generally been extremely laudatory towards it, even when I did not always think the show deserved it. She also has gotten to know the show’s cast and showrunners, like Jack Kenny and Eddie McClintock, so you can tell she’s trying to be as professionally polite as she can be in her criticisms. It’s perfect and I’m thankful that someone in the larger media is calling Warehouse 13 out on its disastrous start to its final season, but particularly the abomination that was episode 5.02. Her article has nothing to do with Bering and Wells because that is not the reason there are massive issues, at this point. Instead, we see systematic problems in continuity, character integrity, overall quality of writing, and just their storytelling in general.
I hate being negative about a show that I love, but as a member of its fandom, if I feel someone is degrading something I hold dear - even if it’s the people who run the show - then I don’t think we should put our heads down and just say “Que sera sera.” Fandom is like family - we’re rooting for it and love it, but that doesn’t mean we can’t criticize it and point out when we think it’s gone astray.

Look, I always believed that the life of a Warehouse agent, by necessity, had to be one of solitude, isolation. And then you came into mine. And you… you gave me hope.
Can I get a t-shirt w warehouse 13 season 5 on it?
Because this season is the artifact that almost killed me
i did the thing and it hurts so, so bad.
