The characters are all Mary Sue types who struggle with nothing and between them know everything. They solve puzzles mere nanoseconds after they arrive on scene and the whole thing is basically them coasting through their adventure while being magic and smug about it (except for the one character who does math because she's the token modest nerdy character). This worked for me in Eureka and Warehouse 13 because the characters sometimes ran into actual trouble, but so far nothing has really gone wrong for these guys. Yawn.
