I usually reserve this space for talking about books, but today it’s TV, specifically The Librarians. It’s the only series I keep up with aside from Downton and Colbert. I started watching because I know a lot of super-hero librarians, including my husband. But the show also has other things I like, including, in no particular order:
2. Fairy tales
3. King Arthur references
5. Quick banter/witty dialogue
6. Cheesy special effects
7. A good script. (See 5.) I haven’t wanted to write for a show this badly since 90210.
10. Mathemagic. (It IS going to be a thing!)
13. Butt-kicking women
Plus, it’s something my kids will watch besides Mythbusters and cooking shows. We loved the original movies with Noah Wyle, and he pops into the series fairly regularly. We’ve watched most of them, and during the snow, we’re binge-watching the ones we missed while we wait for Season 3. Waiting. Tap. Tap. Come on Season 3!
Other Blizzard video watching: Galaxy Quest (thank you, Alan Rickman) and Drumline (my own high school band performed In the Stone, which is the first song the band plays in the movie).
