The Librarians (2014-?)
A group of librarians set off on adventures in an effort to save mysterious, ancient artifacts.
The Librarian is like a poor man’s Indiana Jones and I have to say I love it. It’s a mixture of magic, history, science, and intellect. Yes I know it’s all made up and I’m sure they get things wrong, but it encourages thinking instead of going in guns blazing. The hero is a librarian that solves problems with his mind but can also kick butt.
I’m really curious to see how this series develops since Noah Wyle is not going to be in every episode.
The first episode set up the series, the new librarians are going to be dealing with the effects of the released magic, and I thought it was pretty good. On par with the movies so far. The second half (second episode?) wasn’t quite as good as the first but it was still enjoyable.
I love the fact that John Larroquette is a new character, that it wasn’t just a bunch of young geniuses added to the universe. I’m excited about this show and I thought the pilot was pretty good.
