The Librarians Premiere Review: More magic than ever!
After a lot of waiting around, watching and rewatching the movies and the TV show that made me fall in love with books and history, finally the new season of "The Librarians" is here for our anxious eyes.
In the ten months of patiently waiting for the renewal of the show, on August 5th, 2015 it was finally announced and we fans couldn't be happier. We want more Flynn Carsen (or am I the only one — I doubt it).
As the first season ended, Eve, Cassandra, Ezekiel and Jacob (with the help of Jenkins) saved Flynn Carsen and the thread of the world from being destroyed. In the end the new Librarians parted the library together towards Peru.
TNT had the idea to delight us with a two hour premiere of season 2 and I couldn’t be happier. The episode starts 9 months later in London when the Ley lines are reopened.
The Librarians are all summoned to the History Museum of New York by the clip book as any ordinary day. But as the normality is too abnormal for the Librarian world, an unusual mega storm forms in the sky making the state of New York fall under really bad weather.
There's a new evil in town and his name is: Prospero, the magician from Shakespeare's The Tempest.
After the magic was restored to the ley lines, Prospero got his magic back and he decided that this time he wasn't renouncing it. He summons James Moriarty, the fictional character, from a book of Sherlock Holmes, to be the deductive part on his plan to regain possession of his book.
But as the Librarians are smart, they decide - or at least try - to destroy the storm with a beam of light created by the sun they have stored in a room (why I don't know).
But Prospero is not easy to destroy and so he was able to disappear with Moriarty through a portal.
The second episode was also meaningful but what I liked the most was the appearance of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland and Frankenstein. I was happy to see the recreation of characters I read all my childhood come to life.
More of the beginning of this season is yet to tell but I will let you see the episodes for yourself, not to rob you of the pleasure of seeing a normal world full of magic.
With 8 episodes to go from 10 episodes total that TNT revealed to complete the Season 2, this first episode sets the bar high for what's coming next.
So don't forget to tune in form now on TNT at 8/7c. It will be amazing! (I hope)
