The Librarians

Over the holidays, I got into watching a series on the Syfy channel at my Dads house. It hooked me pretty much immediately. The internet tells me that this is a successor of sorts to that other series, Warehouse 13. Which is a series that has been on my to watch pile for a while.

It follows a group of Librarians who are charged with retrieving and protecting magical artifacts throughout the world. The series kicks off with the actual library getting lost in space and time, so whilst the actual librarian is off out trying to find a way to bring it back, the trainee librarians and their guardian are in charge of protecting the world from uncontrolled magic. The episodes stand very well alone, and are eventually tied together into an overall story.

It’s cheesy, and it’s fun. More importantly, the entire first season is on Amazon Video for £2.99. I’m unsure if this is a mistake on the part of Amazon, as they also sell the individual episodes of season 1 for £2.99 each. Not that I’m complaining, of course. Sadly, similar has not happened yet to season 2. Still, at that price, you’d be mad to not check out Season 1. A short google has also told me that season 3 is also in the works, so it’s good to know that I haven’t gotten emotionally invested into something that will do a Firefly on me.
