Oh I LOVE this! Imagine a cross between Raiders of the Lost Ark, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and your love of Libraries and Librarians all wrapped up in a brand new TV series.

 

Yes! It's THE LIBRARIANS who will save the world

!

I just caught Season 1 Episode 1 on the TNT Drama / TBS website (http://www.tntdrama.com/shows/the-librarians.html

 

The first two episodes are available to watch. And, it appears as though there are 10 episodes in the series.

 

Within the first 10 minutes I had to hit the pause button on my computer, turn on the TV and set my DVR to automatically record the entire season.

 

It's campy. It's fun. It is poetic license gone wild. And, it is so full of literary allusion that I had to stop counting the literary references I recognized.

 

It may not be as exciting to the absolute purist, but if you have a bit of receptiveness to the concept, it would be worth your while to catch the first episode or two. 

 

Here's what I'm hoping. You know those "crazy" people who adore "anything Star Trek and Star Wars" so much that they can identify any of thousands quotes from these shows. You know, those who can spot, argue, and provide extensive analysis of even the tiniest minutiae? 

I can see that kind of fan base growing for this brand new show. It just drips with literary love.

 

That's where I'm heading. 

 

Any place for recommending this show to your students?
