There’s still a Librarians of Congress joke out there on to which we haven’t quite put our finger.
TNT’s wacky movies turned wacky short-season-series gets a second ten episode installment beginning this Sunday with back to back one hour shows.
Which ‘exotic’ locale are we hoping for this go ’round?
R: This week I (re?)watched the two Librarian movies that are available on Hulu; both spent a lot of time in jungles and caves, not weird bodysnatcher time-shifting towns. One of them required that our hero “travel between the breasts of Sheba.” I don’t have a specific locale that I’m hoping for, as long as it makes room for more terrible euphemisms.
M: That was a euphemism? I need to watch the movies. I’ve only seen the Stana Katic is a sultry New Orleans vampire one. (Spoilers – Stana Katic is a vampire in that one.)
I would like it if they broke out of the Euro-American area some more – the dragons episode did it a bit – so a jungle wouldn’t be a bad change of pace.
What critical artifact1 will show up in the premiere?
R: Does John Larroquette count?
M: Everything I think of winds up overlapping with Warehouse 13. It actually makes me wonder how much material The Librarians can claim as ‘original’ source.
Anyway – I doubt it’ll be the first episode, but I’m calling it now – the witches’ cauldron from Macbeth is going to show up this season.
Who will be this season’s Big Bad?
M: If they don’t bring back Morgan/Morganna, I’ll eat the magic-imbued hat of some famous person from the Middle Ages. Alicia Witt was so good.
R: Agreed. It seems like The Guardian might take a step back in the same way The Librarian did in season 1, so we need some consistency. Morganna is a great way to make that happen.
What’s the line on level of plot coherency?
M: My DVR is already showing episode 3 scheduled before episode 2, so I put it at 100:1.
R: Pretty sure plot coherency is not a thing that exists in The Library’s universe(s). 500:1.
The Librarians second season 2-hour premiere is this Sunday, November 1, at 8/7c, on TNT. That was a lot of commas.
- That somehow doesn’t overlap with Warehouse 13… ↵
