The Librarians Season 3 Episode 9 Review: And the Fatal Separation

  • TVfanatic
Well. Um. So, that happened. I'm really of mixed feelings about The Librarians Season 3 Episode 9, to the point where I can't decide – even sitting here writing this review – whether this episode was good or completely ludicrous.

The series itself definitely requires a certain level of whimsy in its viewers, but "And the Fatal Separation" definitely took suspension of disbelief to levels of parody.

The Monkey King of Shangri-La came out of nowhere as apparently the guy who's been teaching Jake next-level fighting skills (probably to make better use of Christian Kane's training).

The way Jake and the Monkey King spouted apparently-profound wisdom at each other in humorous fashion indicated that the writers were almost certainly aware of the exploitation of martial arts movie cliches.

The Sdcc 2012 Fright Schedule And Beyond – Saturday

Well, Saturday’s schedule for this year’s San Diego Comic Con is now live. So far, we’ve been reporting horror specific events and panels scheduled for the convention. Saturday’s schedule is interesting, though. While they have enough fright themed panels slated for the day, we noticed that Saturday would be better presented as a mixed bag. With everything from Django Unchained and True Blood, to the much anticipated Silent Hill movie sequel and a nerdsplosive panel featuring Roger Corman And William Shatner, Saturday looks like it’ll hold up it’s end of the bargain as being an all out blast!

Seriously, there’s so much to highlight! I’m just going to shut up and command you to check out the list we compiled below.

Earlier this week, I was invited to the set of Femme Fatales, where we screened Haunted and spoke with some of the cast and crew.

Guys, the good news is the women are all gorgeous and some of them tend to not wear a lot of/any clothing. Though, the bad news is, these women tend to murder the

'Femme Fatales' on Cinemax?

Tomorrow night — yes, Friday the 13th — a new show is premiering on Cinemax, that purveyor of inspirational After Dark programming such as Zane's Sex Chronicles and Co-Ed Confidential 4Play. It's called Femme Fatales and I don't know if it will be any good, but it just might be better than it needs to be.

Femme Fatales is being promoted as a female-centric film noir version of The Twilight Zone, drawing influences from pulp fiction stories and graphic novels, with lots of T&A. It comes to us from the overstimulated minds of Mark A. Altman and Steven Kriozere, which seems weird at first because both of these guys have respectable day jobs in network television. But it starts to make sense when you realize they also have a bit of experience with the ol' slap and tickle.

Altman and Kriozere work as producers on Castle, the ABC detective romp starring Nathan Fillion and Stana Kanic.
