?Let me be clear — I watch neither of these generally well-liked Syfy TV shows, but I’m a sucker for any kind of crossover that doesn’t involve Hanna Barbera cartoons. Each series will air one episode of the two-part crossover, and… well, I’ll let Syfy’s press release sum it up for you:

In the episodes, which are currently filming, Douglas Fargo (Neil
Grayston) of Eureka’s Global Dynamics is sent to Warehouse 13 to help
update its aging computer system. This triggers a seemingly sentient
computer virus that sends the Warehouse into lockdown and traps the team
inside. The Warehouse 13 episode is entitled “13.1” and will air on
Tuesday, August 3, at 9PM (ET/PT).

The Eureka episode entitled “Crossing Over,” will air on Friday,
August 6, at 9PM (ET/PT). Warehouse 13’s Claudia Donovan (Allison
Scagliotti) pays a visit to Eureka, hoping to see some amazing
technological wonders. She gets more than she bargained for when
seemingly random objects begin appearing around town. Working with
Sheriff Carter (Colin Ferguson) and Fargo, Claudia has to help solve the
mystery before the strange anomalies have deadly
consequences…particularly for newcomer Dr. Grant (James Callis).

Rene Auberjonois (Boston Legal and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) will
guest star in the Warehouse 13 episode as former Warehouse agent Hugo
Miller.

James Callis and Rene Auberjonois? That’s a Syfy mega-event to be sure. So, who’s excited by this? Is it worth me mentioning again if there’s news? Or did I just waste a perfectly good TR on this announcement?
