The Librarian: Quest for the Spear (NR)

While I would love to claim my job is as exciting as Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle), a librarian tasked with protecting historical and magical items in a secret library, the reality is not quite so adventurous. That said, I can at least fantasize what it would be like to be an Indiana Jones-esque adventurer in The Librarian: Quest for the Spear, an admittedly cheesy TV movie that is nevertheless a good time and a fun family flick. If you enjoy Flynn Carsen’s antics you are in luck as Hoopla has both the movie sequels as well as the four-season television series available to watch as well!
