    Yes, there were elements of magic and fantasy in the TV movies as well.

    I'm actually looking forward to this show. I've always enjoyed the movie as a fun, relaxing way to pass a rainy Sunday afternoon along, so I hope I feel the same way about the show.

    For those interested, the three movies are showing tomorrow starting at Noon.

    IMHO, the first one is great, the second one is OK, the third one is ... meh.

    Pretty much like every trilogy ever. (Except "Godfather.")

    The third movie ("Curse of the Judas Chalice") does have Stana Katic (Castle).

    Thanks! I've seen them, but it's been quite a while ago. Will be a good refresh before viewing the new series.

    Funny, Tribune Media rates them as 2 stars; 3 stars; 2.5 stars.

    Right. The "Librarians" are not magical or sorcerers they just deal with items that are. They are very much human and deal with the situations using their skill which is mostly intelligence.

    I'm not familiar with the movies, but do plan to watch as they sound interesting.

    The way you describe them reminds me of Three Days of the Condor.

    If you haven't seen it it sounds like you would find it enjoyable. (that probably goes for all here)

    However as I recall it current library head and former The Librarian, Judson (Bob Newhart) had the ability to appear out of thin air. It is not clear if he is using a transporter and it is also suggested he is centuries old.

    Anyone know where this will be airing on Canada? I read that Bell Media bought the distribution rights so they will have it eventually. Don't see anything in the guide now, though.

    The main difference between The Library and The Warehouse is that The Library deals mostly with mythical items like The Spear of Destiny and Excalibur while The Warehouse is mostly full of ordinary items that have been imbued with power by traumatic events.

    Found it. It's showing on Space in Canada (kinda like SyFy). They are airing the first two episodes tonight. Are they going with two on TNT as well?

    Are you sure it's 2? I thought they were just running the first episode twice?

    It's the first two episodes in one 2:04 block, shown twice, - at 8:00PM and 10:04PM.

    Ah. I just noticed the episode number. It's listed as just 101. I didn't pay attention to the length of the broadcast. I just assumed it was a 1 hour broadcast with a repeat as opposed to a 2 hour premier with a repeat right after.

    Warner Brothers is definitely pulling out the stops for this show; I see that these first two episodes will also be aired on TruTV, TBS, and even across the CW network over the next week.

    Without getting spoiler-y, I don't know that the show has the same spark as the movies, but it looks like an interesting light drama. It feels like a mix of The Librarian movies with a little Leverage mixed in.

    I was a bit disappointed that Flynn was more cartoonish than in the movies.
    But yes, the Leverage DNA is pretty obvious, not that it's necessarily a bad thing.
