''{{ER}}'' veteran Creator/NoahWyle stars as the title character, Carsen, a sort of cute but very geeky boy-next-door who lives with his mother in New York, and is a perpetual student, with over two dozen degrees; precisely why he's offered the job in the first movie. He's accompanied in each movie by a tough-as-nails companion, who's always an attractive woman in a deliberate subversion of the "brawny man, weak woman" stereotype (Carsen himself can't fight worth a damn when it comes to throwing kicks and punches). Due to actresses' schedules (the one who played the bodyguard Nicole Noone in the first movie took a job as a regular cast member on ''Series/BostonLegal'' around the same time), the female companion seems to change in every film, from a bodyguard appointed for his first year, to an archaeologist who happened to be searching for the same thing, to a woman that he was drawn to by destiny. This ends up giving the movies a sort of subversion of a BondGirl who ends up ''at least'' as competent as the Librarian at the action.

The films are, in short, action-adventure comedy that parodies action adventure movies, with the world's biggest nerd as the action hero. Basically, ''Franchise/IndianaJones meets ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}''.

* TheCameo: From Jonathan Frakes (who directs the second and third movies). In the second film he's the scowling ex-con fiance of an ex-girlfriend of Flynn's, and in the third movie he's a trombone player that Flynn and Simone walk past

** The cameo in the third movie also counts as a ShoutOut to [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration]] - Riker played trombone!

* SinkOrSwimMentor: New librarians were originally immediately sent into the field to deal with apocalyptic crises with no training and only a guardian for protection. If the librarian survived then it was on to the next assignment and if they didn't, it was time to start looking for the next candidate. Flynn eventually decides to make some changes by having the librarians-in-training handle cases that won't necessarily result in certain death and the end of the world. He still keeps the hands-off approach, however.
