The Librarian trilogy of movies started airing on TNT back in 2004 and has since grown a pretty respectable fan base. Quest for the Spear, Return to King Salomon’s Mines, and The Curse of the Judas Chalice filled the need for more adventures similar to the Indiana Jones movies in the many years after The Last Crusade. Noah Wyle plays Flynn Carson, The Librarian chosen to guard the wonders of the secret Library. Bob Newhart and Jane Curtain provide backup and snark to Flynn’s bumbling yet earnest intellectual.
The new series The Librarians starting this Sunday will continue this franchise with some updates and truly awesome cast additions. I was excited to learn that this show was happening, especially with the original cast appearing as well as the first episode focusing on the King Arthur legend! Christian Kane and John Larroquette becoming main cast members makes me incredibly happy, and I can not wait to see them in action.
