The show, which airs its season finale this Sunday, isn’t a dark drama like the network’s latest original series, “Animal Kingdom” and “Good Behavior.” But Wyle, who executive produces the show, appeared in seven episodes this season, directed two and even wrote one, believes “The Librarians” serves a purpose, as one of the few shows on TV crafted to serve as true family programming.
“There’s certain shows that have a big audience but don’t necessarily fit the edgier brand that I think TNT is trying to be. Yet, they bring an audience that’s a pretty good demographic,” he said to IndieWire. “They have been supportive, they have been marketing the show well this year, and the numbers speak to that. I’m hoping that they figure out that it’s not an either/or.

Our long election season is finally coming to an end, and all that remains is to vote. And watch an election-themed movie!
Going through the list of movies about elections, the Movie Geeks found a lot more negative than positive ones, and more movies about manipulative people behind the candidate than inspiring candidates. While there is a lot of biting social commentary and satire, there are a few light and silly election movies too. So top cap off election season, here are a dozen election and political movies.
Don’t forget to vote!
Jay Roach, director of the true story political HBO films “Recount” and “Game Change”, goes for the big laughs in this farce about a lazy, scandal-ridden incumbent congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) who faces off against a bumbling, naive altruistic Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis).

From the “Das Boot – The Director’s Cut” DVD, this eight-minute featurette follows a German captain as he travels through and narrates each compartment of the ship, from the officer’s bunkroom to the control center to the torpedo room.
Fun facts you may have not picked up from the film itself: The boat was designed for 24 people but in wartime the crew was doubled to 48 (the captain being the only member who didn’t have to share a bunk). Large amounts of ammunition were stored right below these bunks. The electric motors allowed the boat to move silently underwater in case of approaching enemies. The motors had to U-96 submarines needed to recharge diesel engines, which is why they had to come up for air at least every eight hours.
But don’t take my word for it: Enjoy a splendid German captain saying it.

About the film:
The name John Frankenheimer became forever synonymous with heart-in-the-throat filmmaking when this quintessential sixties political thriller was released. Set in the early fifties, this razor-sharp adaptation of the novel by Richard Condon concerns the decorated U.S. Army sergeant Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey), who as a prisoner during the Korean War is brainwashed into becoming a sleeper assassin in a Communist conspiracy, and a fellow Pow (Frank Sinatra) who slowly uncovers the sinister plot. In an unforgettable performance, Angela Lansbury plays Raymond’s villainous mother, the controlling wife of a witch-hunting anti-Communist senator with his eyes on the White House.
