In Quest for the Spear, Flynn Carsen (played by Noah Wyle) is hired to be the new librarian at the New York Public Library, specifically for a mysterious room full of fantastic artifacts. His qualifications? He holds 12 bachelors, 6 masters, and 4 PhDs in various subjects. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a career student in his mid-thirties. Full of humor, action, adventure, and mystery, The Librarian is a swashbuckling comedy and somewhat a spoof of Indiana Jones.
Bob Newhart has a great role as the museum curator and FlynnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s boss. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m glad to see that heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be in the sequel as well. Nicole Noone (played by Sonya Walger) was FlynnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s bodyguard and love interest in the first movie, but it looks like sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be replaced by Gabrielle Anwar as his new lady friend. Olympia Dukakis will also be returning as FlynnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mother, who nags him about settling down.
The Quest for the Spear will air again on Sunday at 1 am on TNT, for those wanting to catch the first tv movie. And Return to King SolomonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mines will air several times on Sunday night starting at 8/7 Central.
