A Cross of the X-files and The Librarian

I like this new series. It's definitely a cross between X-files, the pair of them getting shipped off to the back of beyond as far as their career goes; and the Librarian. My first instinct was to say Indiana Jones, but it just doesn't have that big budget feel. It feels more like the made for TV movies about the Librarian.


However, one feature it does have with Indiana Jones is the giant mega warehouse where everything goes to be stored for ever and ever until they can research it, destroy it, or use it. Of course that same warehouse is in Stargate too. I suppose it was only a matter of time before we got to see a show about the warehouse itself.


It also reminded me of Bones. The male is a rather stupider version of him, no offense to the actor that's just how the character comes off to me. The female lead (Micah) feels like a cop version of Bones with the way she notices detail and wants to stick to a very narrow plan. Did anyone else get this feeling or is it just me?


Last, but not least, I would like to address the technology introduced in the warehouse, and the standard issue for its agents. It's very steampunk, which I think is a good thing. The car, the keyboard, a lot of Artie's computer set up. There's also the videophones in black and white beneath bubbles, and Nickola Tesla's stun gun. Yeah, definitely steam punk, and I'm glad to see something come out of the upsurge in steam punk.

I believe it is also influenced (ore very similar to) "Friday 13: the series". Same concept, same premise but without the warehouse. I found the show interesting but not captivating. I am willing to give it a shot though but I still think it needs more oomph......the characters are ok, we'll see how they develop....Not bad, not great....will watch it, but stick to EUREKA.....

this looks to be a great start. I like the characters although the Micah could be a little looser... she seems a little tightly wound! But watch and see I always say.
