Secret Service Agents Pete Lattimer and Myka Bering are assigned to protect an exposition in Washington D.C., but they fail and a rare Aztec stone is stolen. However, they are individually assigned to a matter of national security by the mysterious Mrs. Irene Frederic and they meet each other in a warehouse in South Dakota, the Badlands. They are welcomed by the clumsy Arthur "Artie" Nelson, who shows them thousand of artifacts stored there to protect mankind against their powers. Pete and Myka travel to Iowa to investigate the reason why law student Cody Thomas has beaten his girlfriend Emily Krueger. Cody speaks in ancient Italian with the agents and soon they discover that a jewel that belonged to Lucrecia Borgia is affecting Cody and his godmother Lorna Soliday. Written by

The football which appears to be capable of circling the Earth seems to be the same "Flubber"-filled one from 1963's Son of Flubber (1963). See more »
Artie credits the invention of the television to "Philo Farnsworth" in around 1929. He didn't invent television, but refined the electronic processing and production of pictures on a cathode ray tube. The communicators named after him in the show are not thick enough to use cathode ray technology. See more »
The characters at this point seem a bit cookie cutter. The free spirited funny guy. The uptight, all business hot chick and the zany sidekick. Im sure they will develop as the series goes on.
The story and basis of the show seems a bit off the wall at first, and it is, but it works (at least in the pilot) A very intriguing story that is delivered well. The episode, though a bit long, kept me involved and entertained the whole way through. By the end i honestly cared about what happened with the story and the characters.
A very promising start to what could turn out to be a good series. Im sure the next few episodes will give us all a better idea of what this will turn out to be, and with Allison Scagliotti joins along with the cast, im willing to bet thats gonna add that much more to the show.
