Back when Warehouse 13 premiered (July '09?), they offered a free HD copy of the pilot on iTunes and I added it to my cart. My recollection is that I started the download, but it was over 2gigs and very slow, so I killed the download and deleted it. Since then, every time I buy anything, iTunes starts downloading that damn Warehouse 13 pilot again. I always stop it and delete it, but it's there again the next time. I've even let it download completely before. That didn't end the madness either. My account always shows I have that one item available for download. I can't figure out how to get rid of it!

I think that Warehouse 13 pilot got sucked into a parallel universe and the doorway to it is inside my iTunes account.

Maybe you should just give in gracefully and download the damn thing? Then delete it and rest easy.

In totally (un)related topics beginning with i - this site made me laugh so hard today I had to stop reading it:
I think I want an iphone now just so I can experience the fail.

I think I want me to have one, loads have them at work and they seem pretty good at filling in the (little) downtime we get (i.e. the odd hour sitting and waiting for the police to show up before we go to an idiot!)

That site just made me roll. I especially loved the casual replacement of "fellatio" for "gellato" :-)

I spent a good couple hours the other day LOLing my LMAO off at that site.

YES I had that same problem with Parks and Recreation. Every.FLipping.Time I opened Itunes it would start. I think I finally got rid of it some how I'm not sure how. but it was like the terminator It kept coming back!

/me is very proud of herself for making that into a Termie reference.

That gives me hope that one day I'll figure out how to get rid of it.

You definitely get a merit for making a Terminator reference. I can't believe I didn't think to go there... That Warehouse 13 pilot can't be bargained with, it can't be reasoned with... It doesn't feel pity or remorse or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, EVER!

lol tags "quantum mechanics"

because iTunes always thinks today is the day you should download wh13... #ohsnap

I have the same issue with podcasts. possible a subscription thing? or some setting where it thinks you mean to dl it. *shrugs*

That’s really weird, you could try, Edit-Preferences-Store, then un tick “Automatically check for available downloads,” that might stop it.

That would stop it from downloading automatically, but then I'd have to manually initiate any podcast downloads and stuff like that that I actually want to download automatically. One day I'll figure this out!

Even downloading it doesn't get rid of it? Damn. This is starting to sound less like a free gift and more like some sort of determined malware that's stalking you.

Have you tried removing it from your queue? (Or however it works with iTunes.)

There used to be a shopping cart, but somewhere along the way, an iTunes update switched the "shopping cart" to a "wish list". If I got to my wish list, there's no Warehouse 13 pilot shown, so the only way I can't find anywhere to prevent it from downloading. It total is stalking me!

Just keeps getting harder and harder to like that show.

I liked it when it started, but by the end of the first season, I'd given it up. Myka and Pete just seemed like they belonged in a different show or something. They came across as too dumb and too zany — the show just feels like it's lacks balance. Is it camp? Is it serious? I don't know which one it wants to be. My husband likes the show, so I usually watch it. I found myself enjoying it more towards the end of season 2. Maybe I'll like season 3 when it returns.

Eye Candy: that's a pretty good description of W13.

It's total camp. There's way too much "woo-woo" or magical content to take it seriously as science fiction. It completely ignores physics. Pete and Micah are not at all believeable as ex Secret Service. Mrs. Frederick is a cartoon. Claudia is Carrie Byron.

Despite all that, it's entertaining to watch, but not at all thought provoking.
