An Open Letter to Warehouse 13

Dear Writers of Warehouse 13,

What the hell dudes? That was some sloppy writing. Why would college students be concerned about a local bottling plant closing down? They're in COLLEGE! Apparently a pretty nice one, given Gary's dorm room. Seriously? He's got single room and he's worried about a scholarship? Financial worries mean roommates- or living at home. (If your college is located in your hometown AND you have financial issues, you go cheap and live at home.)

If he's in college, I'm guessing he's already got the means to pay (or some serious future debt), and ambitions that will take him beyond a bottling plant. College degrees give you options beyond staying in your hometown. I'm guessing that the school draws some folks that aren't local- maybe he can try living in one of their towns.

Point two- there is no South Dakota University. East river we've got University of South Dakota, South Dakota State University, Dakota State University, and Northern State University. West river (where Warehouse 13 WOULD be located), there's Black Hills State University and South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. Those are just the public universities- there's a ton of private colleges as well. What's the matter SyFy, couldn't get any of the local schools to pony up an endorsement? I guess that's not you're fault, but as a South Dakota resident, I feel it's my duty to pick on these things.

You don't even want to know what I think of the racial make-up of Univille. Have you ever been in a small South Dakota town? Yes, there's a white majority- but come on. Major cop out making the vet Hispanic. Native American would have been much more believable, giving the locale. I suppose I'll buy her being a recent transplant. But seriously folks, a cafe AND a Chinese restaurant? In a town that small, they're lucky to have one place to eat and a hotel B/B thing (neither of which is a bar).

Seriously, come to South Dakota. Explore a little. Soak up some of the local flavor. Then get back to work.
