The Librarians – TV show review

Last week the new show started on TNT – The Librarians. No, it’s not a show about working in the library and serving the customers. It is a show of adventure, knowledge, and magic.

Not many people know, but there are 3 movies before the TV show:

The TV show is a sequel to the movies with some new characters and some returning characters too. There is a secret underground library that contains magical artefacts, like Excalibur, and the Librarian is the protector of the Library. There can only be one Librarian and the next one is selected after the previous one has died. The Library is magical and chooses the candidates to become the new Librarian. They get a letter for an interview and the best of the best is selected. Working at the Library involves quests and fighting villains, who want to take the power of the magical artefacts. It is like Indiana Jones only on a smaller budget.

I must admit, the acting part is far from being great, but there is still something about the idea of a magical library that keeps me glued to the screen. The two first episodes are not telling much about the main idea, so I would suggest watching the movies first. TV show jumps straight into action – a Guardian is chosen and some of the potential candidate Librarians are in grave danger. The best part is that all candidates are very smart and they can achieve incredible things by working together. The series seem very promising in terms of promoting the power of knowledge.  I have not checked, if the information is accurate, but it will certainly be fun to find out something new about legendary artefacts from this interpretation.

I would recommend this show to anyone who likes magic, tales and smart people. It’s hard to tell by watching only 2 episodes, but I would rate it by 7 out of 10 at the moment. It’s witty and has some exciting adventures.
