TNT has brought its own Doctor Who type to the small American television screen with The Librarians, a revisit to the TV movie verse that began in 2004 with the first film titled The Librarian: Quest for the Spear. Noah Wyle is back reprising his role as librarian Flynn Carson and Bob Newhart features in the show’s pilot as Judson, his character in the television movies. While Wyle made an appearance in the two hour long pilot, he will be an intermittent character in the series and the show promises to have some pretty impressive guest stars, one of which is Bruce Campbell.
Watching Canadian singer/songwriter and actor Drake on season 39 episode 11, it becomes clear that SNL is still crazy after all these years. Despite its longevity the show feels the same. After the obligatory introductory skit, which ends with the excited delivery of “It’s Saturday Night,” followed by the dulcet tones of 95 year-old Don Pardo calling off the names of this episode’s players; it almost feels like the viewer has stepped into a time machine and gone back to 1975 when the show first started.
