A Brief Guilty Pleasure – The Librarian


Right now I’m pretty well slammed between work and real life (and a sick toddler this weekend only made matters worse). But, I thought I’d quickly share about a guilty pleasure – The Librarian.

If you haven’t seen these movies, they are made-for-cable on TNT. As you’d expect, the budget isn’t up to big studio SFF type, but that only makes these movies better. These are satirical, post-modern, ridiculously stupid movies – and I love them. They make fun of themselves right along side of making fun of the fantastical adventure movies along the lines of Indiana Jones and Alan Quartermain. Noah Wyle makes the perfect dufus-genius who is even more hopeless with women than I am (though I’m happily married and he always gets the hot chick, or hot vampire as it may apply).


I mention this now since the third movie just came out last night –
The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice – it’s as perfectly ridiculous as the rest. If your sense of humor is as messed up as mine, I highly recommend these movies.

These are cute in a Hercules/Xena kind of way. Just good escapist fun. I like that Jane Curtain and Bob Newhart are in them too.

They showed the first and the second one some time ago in German TV.

And I agree with SQT: Just good escapist fun.

Glad to see someone else talking about this series. It's always been a little goofy and campy, but it's a good escape from reality for a few hours.

It's nice to know that my wife's ascertian that only I would watch movies that are so stupid isn't correct.

Anytime my husband has anything to say about my goofy shows I just mock his reality shows. I win every time.
