Lab or Vault?

I just saw (via Brian at Incertus) that South Dakota is coming to Sci Fi, or SyFy as it will soon be known. It's a shame the series - Warehouse 13 - sounds like a loser.

The series, about a secret government facility in South Dakota where all mysterious relics and supernatural souvenirs are housed, is emblematic of the channel’s programming direction.

“It is a dramedy and it is set in the here and now. It’s a kind of an Indiana Jones meets ‘Moonlighting’ meets ‘The X-Files,’” Mr. Howe said. “This is a very accessible, relatable, fun show.”

Seems like a merry mess to me, but you never know. It does lead me to wonder about that "research laboratory" being built in the old Homestake mine. It would be great place to stash secret stuff.
