''The Librarian'' films are a surprisingly popular action-adventure/fantasy series of TV movies made for the TNT cable network in the United States. The concept is fairly simple: all the world's greatest and most dangerous treasures (including the literal Goose That Laid the Golden Egg, Creator/HGWells' time machine, the Golden Fleece, [[TheLanceOfLonginus the Spear of Longinus]] and the real Mona Lisa - yes folks, the one in the Louvre is apparently a very good fake) are kept in a secret and generally highly secure library, hidden behind a secret door in the Metropolitan Public Library (previously the Library at Alexandria, Egypt, but later moved to the United States), and guarded by the world's smartest and most knowledgeable person... known, of course, as The Librarian.
