    Their kiss doomed her character, since his character can never hold on to a woman.

    I watched the first movie and I tried to watch this but it was so cheesy I stop'd once they got to the library. I just could not take the acting.

    I enjoyed the cheesiness - and thought the campy-ness was suitably obvious.

    There were quite a few pointers to both Warehouse 13 and Leverage, I agree - and since I really liked both of those shows, that was a fun combination to me. :)

    Yep it had that 80's cheesy "Hart to Hart", "Simon and Simon" or "Jake and the Fat man" kind of feel to it.

    I haven't seen this yet, but if it's cheesy and campy in a Warehouse 13 way, I'm in. It's fun like those old serials my dad used to tell me about that he went to as a kid. Mindless fun.

    That's IT!! It did - and I loved those. Well, I don't remember Jake...

    "Hart to Hart" is one of my favorite shows. They perfected that wink and nod to the viewer - "we know this is cheesy and don't you just love it?" and I sure did. Just a fun, good time kind of show.

    Now that you mention it - seems as though "Scorpion" is trying to pull from that book but not as affectionately, nor as successfully. I hope these folks can keep it up, and do it well.

    You know, as I think about it a bit, in some ways he reminded me of what it would be like if an American played the Doctor (that is, Doctor Who).

    Hmm... that's an interesting, if slightly disconcerting concept... an American remake of Doctor Who.

    I thought it was a lot of fun. Yeah, the interactions were a little strained, but it's the first 2 episodes, we have to get to know the characters, and they have to get to know each other. I'm sorry Noah Wyle isn't going to be in it more, but he has other stuff going on, so I get it. I'll also miss Bob Newhart & Jane Curtain, but hopefully there'll be cameos. But what's the Library without Excalibur??? (Oh - and the suggestion on Judson was that he was one of the original Knights Templar, I do believe.)

    And kaddyshack/ced6, were you always in Princeton Junction? I used to work in Monmouth Junction - but for some reason I didn't remember you being in Jersey. Regardless - welcome back!! :)

    And the colonel brings a smidgeon of Torchwood.

    It will be interesting to see how many adventures start by stepping through the Library door into a different space.

    I've only watched the first few minutes of the new series, but it already seemed better than the movies!! and I'm not trying to thread dump.. I'm going to continue watching at least for a while.

    I seem to remember liking the first movie way back when.. I watched the 2nd and 3rd movies over the weekend (On Demand). Wow.. They were BAD. They're really low low low low rent Indiana Jones ripoffs, with soundalike-but-not-enough-to-break-copyright music even!!

    The 3rd was entertaining mostly because it had the woman from Castle, and she was doing a very very very very bad accent.

    I'm not sure if you mean on the Tivo or some other guide. Nowadays, Tivos actually show you something like "Episode 1/2" for these kinds of "cram two episodes together in one slot".. at least with the proper guide data, apparently.

    I am pretty sure I did see it in this case.

    Nope. It just showed episode 101. However, the recorded show on TiVo for me now shows season 1, episode 1. Recorded time is 2:04.

    Finished up the second half of the pilot. I do not remember the Librarian movies but Noah acting like a combination Willy Wonka / Robin Williams got old real fast. Good news is I did not fall asleep during this half. Rebecca looks presentable with her hair down but with it up, eeeek!

    I hope they give Cassandra more to do. The actress was in Kick Ass 2 and played Night B@#$ so she can stage fight.

    Since my Roamio only does HDUI, and I don't get the free space indicator in SDUI, I capitulated long ago..

    Exactly. You're using the HDUI, as am I. But some are still using the SDUI. Although I don't understand how it could show "101" in the guide but Season and Episode in the info for the recording.

    That opening scene was pure Doctor Who. He shows up and does his thing while introducing someone to a bigger world than they knew. And the someone ends up his companion.
