Watched The Librarians last night. I like the concept, but the show is terribly hampered by the "Nancy Drew-Meets-the-Hardy-Boys-at-Age-29" casting AND acting. The program comes across as a rehash of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, which of course it is since one of them was acting like Xander and another was acting like Willow, but it goes farther back than that; it is a 1960s formula. The only thing going for it is the interesting library set.

I'll take Kolchak: The Night Stalker at any time. It didn't seem derivative of anything except for Rod Serling's Night Gallery, though not everyone will see the connection between those two. I wish DIVA/Universal would buy the rights to that.
