So this last weekend was a good weekend for television. Sunday was the series premiere of The Librarians, a new series on TNT based off the TV movie series The Librarian starring Noah Wyle. If you haven’t seen the movies, get your hands on them! In the meantime, you can catch the season premiere online here. That’s right, we librarians are officially cool enough to have our own TV series.
The films follow Flynn Carsen, the Metropolitan Public Library’s newest librarian. What Flynn doesn’t learn until later is this library houses more than books; it has secretly housed and protected ancient relics including The Ark of the Covenant, Pandora’s box, Excalibur and more for hundreds of years. Of course, things get stolen from the museum or something new is discovered and it’s up to a librarian to keep artifacts from falling into the wrong hands, Indiana Jones-eque style!
The first films (in order) are as follows:
The Librarian: The Quest for the Spear (2004)
The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines (2006)
The Librarian: The Curse of The Judas Chalice (2008)
Feel like binge watching them this weekend? Me too. Now I just have to figure out how to work it into my schedule…all three movies, the premiere AND the next episode?
Be sure to catch The Librarians on Sundays at 8pm Eastern. Stay warm this holiday season – now TO ADVENTURE!
