After saving the life of the President in Washington D.C., a pair of U.S Secret Service agents are whisked away to a covert location in South Dakota that houses supernatural objects that the Regents, an Authority above and outside any government, have collected over the centuries. Their new assignment: retrieve lost objects called "Artifacts", seemingly harmless items that can possess immense power, and investigate reports of new ones.
One of the questions Artie suggests to ask when investigating artifact effects, "Do you smell fudge in places where there are no fudge?", becomes a bit of a running joke in the series. Midway through the first season, Myka uses the phrase "I smell fudge" to tell Pete that she's on the trail of an artifact; in the season two premiere, Artie identifies an invisible mine by smell, which Claudia immediately states is fudge.

What a great piece of work. Its just fun and entertaining - no in-depth stories, no deep meanings, nothing to do but watch and enjoy.
My wife and I like it (50s), my children enjoy it (20s and 30s) and their kids enjoy it (6 - 12). Anyone else that has sen it raves about it as well. What more could you want!
Nice escapism after a day at work. I can't wait for the next series to come out.
I recommend this to anyone, sci-fi fans or not. It has adventure, humour, no bad language, nothing too risqué for the kids but a strong enough storyline to keep the adults on board as well as the kids.
