the librarians

the-librarians-season-three-dvdThe Third Season brought new challenges for the Librarians in the form of D.O.S.A. (the Department of Statistical Anomalies, a secret Unites States Government organization tasked with dealing with similar phenomena and who view the Librarians as potential threats) and Apep, the Egyptian God of Chaos, attempting to release Pure Evil on the world.

Highlights from the season include Stone (Christian Kane) and Cassandra (Lindy Booth) stumbling on a lodge full of Norse Frost Giants, Eve (Rebecca Romijn) targeted for death by the unstoppable Reaper, a mystical carnival run by Sean Astin, the search for the Eye of Ra inside the Bermuda Triangle, the discovery of a vampire retreat, and the return of Jane Curtin as the Librarians head to Shangri-La in the penultimate episode of the season.

Dynamite Entertainment brings TNT’s adventure series The Librarians to comics beginning with The Librarians #1. For those unfamiliar with the premise, the Librarians are a group of talented archaeological heroes and their Guardian Eve Baird who keep the world safe from magical artifacts and groups who would use them for evil. Appearing to be set sometime during or after the show’s Second Season, which saw a more hands-on involvement by original Librarian Flynn Carson, the first issue of the series involves the group heading to the film festival of an archaeological hack who is murdered on stage by a mysterious wooden weapon by his longtime partner.

The Third Season finale wraps up both of the ongoing storylines involving Apep’s attempts to unleash pure evil into the world and D.O.S.A.’s interference with the Librarians’ work. Beginning with betrayal, Eve (Rebecca Romijn) allows the goverment to pillage the Library and kidnap Jenkins (John Larroquette) while sending Stone (Christian Kane), Ezekiel (John Kim), and Cassandra (Lindy Booth) on a wild goose chase to keep them out of harm’s way. Meanwhile, Flynn (Noah Wyle) remains in the Library salvaging what artifacts he can while preparing to sacrifice himself to stop Apep once and for all.

Heading into next week’s season (possibly series?) finale, The Librarians continues to weave in pieces from the original Librarian movies. For this week that means both the return of Charlene (Jane Curtin) and Flynn (Noah Wyle) and company heading to Shangri-La (last seen in the The Librarian: Quest for the Spear). There’s actually quite a bit happening in this episode including Eve (Rebecca Romijn) learning that her old mentor is running D.O.S.A. – and wants Eve to switch sides, Stone (Christian Kane) getting some weapons training to help make sense of why he’s had an increasingly strong Elliot Spencer vibe the last-half of this season, Cassandra (Lindy Booth) getting used to her new gift, and the show saying goodbye to one of the franchise’s oldest characters (and foreshadowing the departure of another).

the-librarians-and-the-eternal-question

“And the Eternal Question” is one of the few episodes of the show to directly reference the specifics of one of The Librarian movies. A case of spontaneous combustion leads Stone (Christian Kane), Ezekiel (John Kim), and Cassandra (Lindy Booth) to a holistic retreat run by vampires who have found the one place on Earth they can live outdoors during the daytime. While it may be the weakest of the three made-for-TV movies, The Librarian: The Curse of the Judas Chalice did offer an unusual love interest for Flynn (Noah Wyle) in the undead, but ravishing, Simone (Stana Katic). Flynn’s previous relationships haven’t been discussed until now, and I still wonder just what happened to both Emily (Gabrielle Anwar) and Nicole (Sonya Walger).

A love potion run a muck sends the Librarians in search of the my the reasons why a cult has sprung up a failed reality-TV star named Cindy (Rachael Perrell Fosket). While humorous, such as when Flynn (Noah Wyle) and Stone (Christian Kane) fall for Cindy’s spell, and insightful, as in Ezekiel‘s (John Kim) line about not needing others to validate your worth, “And the Curse of Cindy” is a goofy episode full of some puzzling plot points (such as DOSA, their involvement and disappearance, and the entire missile subplot).

the-librarians-and-the-trial-of-the-triangle

Did I miss an episode? When did Flynn (Noah Wyle) become such an ass? And when did he get on the nerves of everyone else to the extent they needed to form an intervention? Once again, Flynn has come and go as he’s want to do over the course of a season, but I was surprised for the sudden need of an intervention from his peers to kick off the latest episode of The Librarians when the biggest negative impact he’s really had is not being around.

Jenkins (John Larroquette) gets into the field when all of the Librarians go missing while looking into a strange carnival. What he finds is the disturbing site of each member of the time mesmerized and transformed into new attractions for the traveling carnival. Getting the group back to the Annex, Jenkins gets the Librarians and their Guardian restored to their normal selves and helps them remember what happened to them.

Can you change your fate? That’s the question behind “And Self-Fulfilling Prophecy” when Eve (Rebecca Romijn) is targeted for death by the unstoppable Reaper. Waking in a cavern with Stone (Christian Kane) and Ezekiel (John Kim) and a group of strangers from a high school, the group struggles to remember the series of events which set them on their current path which began with Eve being given an hourglass and a prophecy cube prophesying her death within the Library. While dealing with various traps and riddles, Eve’s time slowly runs out. And when the hourglass is empty the Reaper will attack.

What was supposed to be a simple artifact retrieval turns into anything but for Stone (Christian Kane) and Cassandra (Lindy Booth) who, after retrieving the crystal, are forced to take shelter from a storm in a lodge full of Norse Frost Giants whose hatred of humans is only slightly less potent than their desire to feed from the crystal’s power. Meanwhile, back in the Library, Ezekiel (John Kim) proves Eve‘s (Rebecca Romijn) trust in him correct, both by protecting the egg of the Lochness Monster and in providing valuable intelligence for their missing Librarians (all while appearing to be doing nothing but slacking off as usual).
