The Librarians Season 4 Episode 10 Review: And Some Dude Named Jeff

  • TVfanatic
Maybe, just maybe, Jenkins is over the hump.

Jenkins discovered the good side of humanity on The Librarians Season 4 Episode 10.

It's been a rough few months for our favorite knight turned Library curator.

First, he willingly gave up his immortality to save ex-Guardian Nicole Noone on The Librarians Season 4 Episode 1.

It's been a few centuries since Galahad himself was human. So he can be forgiven as he re-acclimates, dealing with the good (food, glorious food) and the bad (aches and pains, disease).

Jenkins has even taken a few baby steps into the world, such as voluntarily entering the crushing maw of a grocery store.

But he definitely got thrown into the deep end when he woke up in the basement room and the body of 28-year-old slacker Jeff.

Frankly, it was hilarious to see Jenkins in Jeff's wardrobe. Jeff looked much less out of place in Jenkins' garb.

Luke and Leia Switch Places in Divisive Star Wars Fan Art

Luke and Leia Switch Places in Divisive Star Wars Fan Art
Last week, two so-called Star Wars fans decided to cut all of the women out of The Last Jedi. And it's brought some interesting reactions from a lot of different people across the Internet. Now, we get some fan art that completely swaps the roles of twin siblings Luke and Leia. Here, Leia becomes the Master Jedi while Luke, looking like an Echo Park hipster in his feminine robes, becomes the lover of gay space pirate Han Solo. The images are already causing a ruckus. But they're pretty harmless for anyone with an open mind about where this franchise can go in the future.

Will we ever see a complete reboot of the original Star Wars with Luke and Leia trading places in some kind of Freaky Friday scenario? That's hugely doubtful. And we kind of already got that with The Force Awakens, as Rey becomes the Jedi Knight and

Lindsay Lohan Gets Bit by a Snake in Thailand, Calls It Good Luck

Lindsay Lohan Gets Bit by a Snake in Thailand, Calls It Good Luck
Lindsay Lohan, the Mean Girls star whose career has taken a pretty serious wrong turn in the last several years, has been bitten by a snake. The 31-year-old actress shared the news very casually via a post to her Instagram, as though it's not a big deal at all. Not only that, but she went so far as to say that the snake bite, which she got while visiting Thailand, is actually good luck. This comes after she defended serial sex crimes offender Harvey Weinstein in the press. Coincidence?

The actress is currently visiting Phuket, Thailand and, while on a hike during her vacation, a snake bit her. She didn't reveal what kind of snake bit her or if she's received any kind of actual medical treatment for the bite, but Lindsay Lohan says she's ok and even showed off the bite in the video. Her "shaman," who sadly doesn't

Movie Review – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, 2017.

Directed by Jake Kasdan.

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillen, Bobby Cannavale, Nick Jonas, Rhys Darby, Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner, and Ser’Darius Blain.

Synopsis

When four very different school kids are given a detention, they happen upon an old video game console with the mysterious Jumanji cartridge. They suddenly find themselves sucked into the world of Jumanji, where they take the form of their selected avatars; Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson), Moose Finbar (Kevin Hart), Professor Shelly Oberon (Jack Black), and Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillen), and must learn to work together in order to complete the game and return to the real world.

Dusting off a board game that has remained unopened since the enjoyable, if hardly a groundbreaking stomping-rhino classic in the form of 1995 Robin Williams summer vehicle Jumanji, wasn’t exactly what audiences were demanding. In this

‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Review: A Robin Williams Relic Is Reborn as a Mildly Amusing Video Game Movie

‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Review: A Robin Williams Relic Is Reborn as a Mildly Amusing Video Game Movie
A semi-related sequel to a 1996 kids movie that exactly zero human beings have watched since the death of VHS, the mildly amusing “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” is further proof that even the stalest whiff of brand recognition has become preferable to originality. Only part of the blame for that belongs to the studios, but after cannibalizing themselves for much of the last 20 years, Hollywood has clearly eaten their way down to the crumbs.

That’s not to suggest the original “Jumanji” was such an unspeakably terrible thing — Joe Johnston has always known how to serve a fine bowl of popcorn entertainment — but rather to say that no one should ever have to write the words: “The original ‘Jumanji.’” And while it’s nice that this new adventure has virtually nothing to do with the first one, “The Lego Batman Movie” screenwriter Chris McKenna leveraging the franchise’s most basic

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle review – fantasy romp likably upgraded for gamer generation

Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Kevin Hart have fun in a video-game world in an amiable sequel-by-numbers with a body-swap twist

The 90s family adventure Jumanji was a fantasy romp about children being whooshed into the universe of a magical board game, where a former kid player played by Robin Williams had grown to adulthood, having been marooned there. The film seemed to be using the grammar and rhetoric of video-gaming, which is about getting from one level to another by not getting killed.

Now it has been upgraded for 2017 in a way that makes the gaming idea explicit, and yet also as quaint and antique as board games might have looked in 1995. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a big, brash, amiable entertainment with something of Indiana Jones, plus the body-swap comedy of Freaky Friday, or F Anstey’s Victorian classic Vice Versa. It features an endearing performance from Dwayne Johnson who,

She’s Back! Lindsay Lohan Makes Rare Red Carpet Appearance with Mom Dina Lohan

She’s Back! Lindsay Lohan Makes Rare Red Carpet Appearance with Mom Dina Lohan
Lindsay Lohan may have relocated to Dubai, but on Wednesday the Freaky Friday star was back Stateside and by her family’s side when she made rare public appearance with mom Dina Lohan.

The mother-daughter duo swung by the Daily Mail‘s holiday party, where they were twinning in head-to-toe black ensembles.

Lindsay, 31, showed a bit of skin in a sheer top with beaded leaf patterns. She paired the eye-catching shirt with slim black legging pants, matching boots and a black bomber jacket.

Dina, meanwhile, kept her embellishments on her pants — rocking some slim-fitting bottoms with red and silver embroidery.

Lindsay Lohan Dishes on Dating, 'Life Size 2' and the Future of 'Mean Girls' (Exclusive)
Lindsay Lohan is a single lady and loving life!

The 31-year-old actress caught up with Et at the Daily Mail's Unwrap the Holidays party in New York City on Wednesday, where she dished on her love life and all her upcoming projects, including her involvement in a Mean Girls sequel and Life Size 2.

"We've spoken, but not enough," Lohan told Et about being in contact with Tyra Banks on a Life Size sequel. "Maybe when I'm here [in the U.S.], I can talk to her about it."

Back in August, Banks told Et that she was in "conversations" with Lohan about reprising her role and that the actress was "excited to come back."

As far as sequels go, Lohan is definitely "game" for a Mean Girls reunion.

"I'm here in New York, so Tina Fey better be hiding or I'm going to find her and Lorne Michaels. I know where his desk is," she joked, adding

When good TV goes bad: how Quantum Leap made one leap too far

The time-travel show used its man-in-another-man’s-body tool to show that compassion trumps prejudice. Then Dr Sam turned up as Lee Harvey Oswald

Keep your salacious, scowling, morally compromised antiheroes. Doctor Sam Beckett – Quantum Leap’s time-hopping samaritan – was dependably the opposite, a sort of uncle hero. As played by the square-jawed Scott Bakula, Sam may have looked rugged but he was also relatable, a goofy but indefatigable do-gooder with six different doctorates, some sick kickboxing moves and a core decency so unshakeable it could apparently survive the existential trauma of frequent temporal displacement.

For five memorable seasons between 1989 and 1993, Sam didn’t just parrot the old maxim about walking a mile in another man’s shoes (or combat boots or high heels); he lived it. After a haywire physics experiment in 1999 sends him ping-ponging within the span of his own lifetime, Sam finds himself zapped abruptly into strangers like a one-sided Freaky Friday.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Episode 6 Review – ‘Helen Hunt’

Jessie Robertson reviews the sixth episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 3…

The opening scene tonight is indicative of what Legends does so well: they perpetuate and use the myth of history to give them their story; now, one could argue, these anachronisms wouldn’t always be the most well-known historical figures and events being mixed up; surely small changes out of their element would be out there, but that wouldn’t make for very good TV. Instead, we get Helen of Troy invading Hollywood and turning every single man’s head and causing wars just like in Troy. One great scene later on, when the gang go to a legit Hollywood 30’s party, all the boys become drawn into her looks and Rory decks Haircut. Again, Rory’s use this week, simple, effective, hilarious.

The mission is seemingly not that difficult; Sara even remarks something like ‘let’s

Legends Of Tomorrow is at its strongest when the cast and crew are having as much fun making the show as I am watching. The cast all have good acting chops, and the stories are often great, but the show peaks when the cast is on the edge of breaking down because someone else is being hilarious, or when their interactions are so natural it feels like they're not even trying to act. The Freaky Friday situation this week gave us plenty of the former, and Brandon Routh and Tala Ashe gave us a bunch of the latter. But that's not to

“Hidden Figures” Writer Allison Schroeder to Pen Drama About Uber Sexual Harassment

Fowler: Shalon Van Tine/susanjfowler.com

Susan Fowler’s story is headed for the big screen. The woman behind the headline-making “Reflecting On One Very, Very Strange Year At Uber” blog post is joining forces with “Hidden Figures” scribe Allison Schroeder and production company Good Universe for a feature film. The untitled project will present Fowler’s experiences with Uber’s sexist, sexual harassment-filled culture. It is described as “‘Erin Brockovich’ meets ‘The Social Network.’”

Schroeder will pen the film, and former Disney exec Kristin Burr (“Freaky Friday”) will produce, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. No word on a director yet.

Fowler’s Uber blog post recounted the widespread misogyny at the ride share company, “which has been described as indicative of the overall sexist Silicon Valley culture,” THR adds. Her story led to an investigation and, ultimately, CEO Travis Kalanick’s resignation in June.

“When I joined Uber, the organization I was part of was over 25 percent women. By the time I was trying to transfer to another eng [engineering] organization, this number had dropped down to less than six percent,” Fowler’s post reveals. “Women were transferring out of the organization, and those who couldn’t transfer were quitting or preparing to quit. There were two major reasons for this: there was the organizational chaos, and there was also the sexism within the organization. When I asked our director at an org all-hands about what was being done about the dwindling numbers of women in the org compared to the rest of the company, his reply was, in a nutshell, that the women of Uber just needed to step up and be better engineers.”

Fowler currently works as the Editor in Chief at Increment, a print and digital publication that offers guidance on how to build and operate software as part of a team. She’s also an author.

Schroeder wrote “Hidden Figures” with the film’s director, Theodore Melfi. The film is based on the true story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer), and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), brilliant African-American women who played an instrumental role in the space race. She sold a scripted drama about an aspiring songwriter to E! earlier this year. She’s also doing additional writing for Marc Forster’s “Christopher Robin,” a feature that sees the grown A.A. Milne character reuniting with his beloved childhood friend, Winnie-the-Pooh.

Hidden Figures” Writer Allison Schroeder to Pen Drama About Uber Sexual Harassment was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

‘Halloween’ 40 Years Later: Why Jamie Lee Curtis Is Still the Ultimate Scream Queen

‘Halloween’ 40 Years Later: Why Jamie Lee Curtis Is Still the Ultimate Scream Queen
The mask. The music. The sequels. There are many memorable things about the Halloween franchise, but none of them have had quite the same impact as a then-20-year-old Jamie Lee Curtis, daughter of Hollywood royalty, who created an everygirl so iconic, she’s returning to the role nearly 40 years after the original.

In 1978, Curtis made her film debut as resilient teenage babysitter Laurie Strode in Halloween. It’s a simple enough story: A young man, Michael Myers, kills his sister on Halloween in 1963 and is locked away in an institution. Fifteen years later, he escapes and returns to his hometown, where he terrorizes and kills a group of teenagers one by one, until he’s stopped (or at least slowed down) by Laurie.

What makes Laurie iconic is the sense of realness Curtis imbues her with. It’s not just that she’s the typical example of the “final girl” horror movie trope, or even that she

Matt Ryan to reprise Constantine role for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 3

In addition to the newly-announced CW Seed animated series, it has been announced that Matt Ryan will be returning to the Arrowverse in live-action, reprising the role of supernatural detective John Constantine for an upcoming guest role in season three of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Asked by Rotten Tomatoes what season three holds, executive producer Phil Klemmer said: ““We get Billy Zane and the circus [in the second episode]; we get a little Julius Caesar (Simon Merrells) on the beach in Aruba in the premiere. We meet [new team member] Zari (Tala Ashe) in this sort of dystopian future. We get to do a little Amblin alien episode back in the 80s; we do some Jack the Ripper Victorian London; Golden Age of Hollywood; John Constantine doing an exorcism. We do a Freaky Friday episode.
