    Think that a late 2014 release may be a bit of a show killer, this has all the trappings of a damn good summer show. Hopefully it'll be a decent little time killer, God knows we need something a little lighthearted as trash like The Following has Networks thinking that going darker is what people want

    Trailers are out for this. Looks like it might scratch that Warehouse 13 itch... :)





  • Registered Users Posts: 28,992 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    I enjoyed the 3 movies for what they were.
    As you say, this will be a decent replacement for Warehouse 13

    I see Christian Kane is back to about his Angel length hair than Leverage hair.
    Seeing Lindy Booth isn't a bad thing either. Plus she has experience from Relic Hunter.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,520 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Starts on Sunday.

    I am really looking forward to this. I enjoyed the three made for tv movies.

    Hoping Bob Newhart pops up every now and then.

    Yeah i saw the ad afaik it's 2pm on Syfy, day before it shows on syfy.

    Will have to have a look at it, handy for Rebecca Romijin as her last show was canned & i forgot Noah Wyle did the movies as the first one was years ago & since Falling Skies has one season left, it's better to branch out!

    The Librarians will still air in the UK within 24 hours of the US broadcast, with the premiere on Syfy UK set for Monday December 8th at 8pm

    I always had a soft spot for those films. This could be good fun. A bit of whimsical, lighthearted adventuring is never a bad thing.


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 6,646 Mod ✭✭✭✭pinkypinky


    I always thought that the idea for Warehouse 13 was spun out of the Library concept. I just watched the first Librarian movie again on SyFy today and it's still enjoyable. But I think the series will struggle to be sufficiently different from Warehouse 13.

    Looking forward to it. Just checked and looks like it's a double episode tonight

    I'll come back with an opinion on this evening as I only had a chance to see it's there (it would be nice to have a Sunday show to go into my schedule as it's currently empty).

    Well that was alot of fun.

    A good mix of Eureka, Warehouse 13 & Relic Hunter.

    I'm on the other side I guess; poor CGI, even worse fighting scenes and boring one sided characters who all have one area of expertise that needs to be used. In many ways it reminds me of Scorpion with "magic" instead of tech as the solution.

    I think that's why I enjoyed to be honest.

    It's not taking itself too seriously it probably doesn't have a huge budget so they are haming it up and just having fun.


    To many of these shows take themselves way too serious.


  • Registered Users Posts: 139 ✭✭soiaf


    While I didn't think it was fantastic, it certainly looks like it could be a bit of fun. I liked Eureka and Warehouse 13 so I suppose it should appeal to me :)

    I did roll my eyes though when they started talking about Excalibur being the sword in the stone. No people, no it's not :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,992 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    So the age of technology is coming to an end and the age of magic is beginning? Is this the prequel to Visionaries?

    I enjoyed it. Must rewatch the movies again.

    Actually felt a bit sad at
    poor Excalibur dying
    Like Christian Kane's reaction to the flying sword. :)

    What age are these characters meant to be? Lindy Booth never seems to age, John Kim looks to be in his early 20s and Christian Kane around 30. Yet they were all candidates 10 years ago?

    I think one complaint I have about the show is Rebecca Romijn's acting


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,943 ✭✭✭Machismo Fan


    Really enjoyed the first two episodes. Some fun romping. Knows exactly what it should be.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,015 ✭✭✭Ludo


    Yep...good enjoyable stuff so far. I miss eureka and warehouse 13 so this fills a gap.

    Looking forward to watching this, got the three films here to watch and thinking that it'll be perfect for a lazy Friday night


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,494 ✭✭✭✭Mr E


    I watched it last night and really enjoyed it.

    I thought the music was a bit overbearing at times, though....


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,494 ✭✭✭✭Mr E


    Sh*t, we ran out of money. I know! Let's turn the minotaur into a biker!

    No money to make the show lets get Bruce Campbell next week :D and make it a true B-show.

    Bruce Campbell as
    Santa


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,069 ✭✭✭Tzar Chasm


    I'm liking it, i get the budget constraints and think it might improve the overall premis of the show

    "Never bring a crowbar to a sword fight".

    Finally, I now know where I have been going wrong.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,943 ✭✭✭Machismo Fan


    Episode three and it's still great fun. Reminds me a little of Doctor Who.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,520 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Bruce Campbell :D:D:D

    As good and as fun a Christmas episode I have seen in a years everything worked the cast the writing the timing of the jokes.

    A great interpretation of who and what
    Santa
    is. :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,992 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    This is definitely a show for just sitting back and enjoying.

    Loved Cassandra's face when she found out he was real and when she met him.

    And Ezekiel being good was fun as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 155 ✭✭aine1980


    Just caught up on the last few episodes of this show & am starting to enjoy it, good show to just chill out & watch :)


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,954 Mod ✭✭✭✭Clareman


    Nice show this, great replacement for Warehouse 13.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,992 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Another fun episode. Just felt like a rushed conclusion again. Not even sure what the coin did.

    And still think Rebecca Romjin is the weakest part of the show. Even though she's a former model, she couldn't portray a convincing princess.

    I watched the first 2 eps, and have recorded the rest (on upc box)
    But according to my recordings, I have eps 4,6,7 and 9?
    Anyone else on upc have this? Am wondering if they are what they say they are or just numbered wrong 😨
