'Transporter: The Series' Recap: 'City Of Love' - Terrorism In Paris

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'City Of Love' - Ter
They say Paris is the "City of Love." After this week's second episode of Transporter: The Series, we can also call it the city that we messed up a little bit through Frank Martin's latest adventure. At least, we very nearly blew the place up and we definitely caused a few moments of panic. Keeps things interesting, doesn't it?

It doesn't start that way, though. When Frank is not doing his part to indirectly make the world a better place, he's inviting Juliette over for dinner. Several drinks later, they're having another conversation in which neither of them is telling the complete truth,...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap: 'The General's Daughter' - Back To The Beginning

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'The General's Daugh
No, this is not that movie with John Travolta and James Cromwell. Nor is it an episode of Birds of Prey, despite the presence of Rachel Skarsten. This week's first episode of Transporter: The Series is better than both those things, even though it's clearly one of the first episodes in the entire series order.

Frank's day gets off to a glamorous start in an empty parking garage, because absolutely nothing good ever happens in an empty parking garage. For example, here's an SUV that rolls up and starts shooting, leaving Frank to throw an innocent bystander across his lap while he tries to m...

'Transporter: The Series': 'The Switch' - The Art Of The Steal

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'The Switch' - The A
Fine art is one of those things: some people get it and some people don't. And some people forge it and get you in a lot of trouble, as Frank Martin discovers in the second of two Transporter: The Series episodes this week. Meanwhile, we're trying to figure out why anyone would think dressing up like a dominatrix is practical villain wear. Let's just say "The Switch" gives us a few things to think about.

Apparently a lot of things happen in Berlin. This includes Frank being stuck in his car with a dog, which he manages to irritate on the way to delivering it to its presumably wealthy owner...

'Transporter: The Series' : 'Harvest' - Sonata For A Stolen Heart

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Harvest' - Sonata F
Remember a few years back when Chris Vance played a doctor in the Australian medical drama All Saints? Well, this week's first episode of Transporter: The Series is kind of like that, as Frank Martin is tasked with the delivery of a human heart. At least he doesn't have to do the transplant and this episode doesn't end with him being hit by a car. Instead, we get to look through his eyes for a little bit in a narrative that executes an efficient back and forth. But he does steal an ambulance.

The client is heavyweight crime lord Drago Sujic (Mike Dopud, who also turned up in the "Dead End"...

TNT's 'The Librarians' Is Your Next Guilty Pleasure!

TNT - The Librarians
I am a major fan of the original made-for-TV movie series, 'The Librarian' including a post-'ER' Noah Wyle's surprising involvement and portrayal of the multi-degree nerdy slacker, Flynn. The 'Librarians' is a guilty pleasure, but it's a full-hearted pleasure. So, when I heard TNT planned on turning it into a series, OF COURSE I wanted to interview the cast at NYCC.

About the Show
The 'Librarians,' produced by Dean Devlin ('Leverage') and John Rogers ('Transformers'), surrounds an organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Library dedicated to protecting the world from mystical artifacts...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Payback' - Old Friends Become New Enemies

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Payback' - Old Frie
We've reached the halfway point of Transporter: The Series season one - or what was episode two in Canada and served as the first-season finale in the French broadcast order. Whatever you want to call it, "Payback" takes a common theme and still gets something special out of it thanks to capable actors and a script that doesn't try to be something it's not.

After a hilarious bit in which Frank schools a tourist in appropriate airport behavior (and which will only reinforce the stereotype of rude American tourists), our hero handles a package in Berlin without knowing he's been recognized. ...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: '12 Hours' - Countdown To Disaster

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: '12 Hours' - Countdo
Start the clock. In this week's first of two new Transporter: The Series episodes, Frank has a particularly bad day that forces him to race against time and deal with the twitchiest of clients in a game of international corporate misdeeds. We're not sure which is more frustrating for him, the countdown on his life or the client who may be his biggest pain in the behind yet. But at least it's a lot of fun for us.

After we sit through something akin to the Cyberdyne Systems presentation from Terminator 2: 3D, you know something is up because XIII: The Series antagonist Greg Bryk is the episo...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Sharks' - Tough Day
At this point, Transporter: The Series is starting to feel like a well-oiled machine, just like the cars it so embraces. It's doing what every good TV series should do - take us on an extended journey with its characters. And just when it has made us laugh with one story, then it returns with a more serious mission that reminds us how well developed it's becoming and how talented its star is.

Frank's second contract in week two brings him back to his home territory of Paris. He argues with Dieter about why he still hasn't driven the red Audi we first glimpsed in "Trojan Horsepower" before ...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Hot Ice' - Diamonds
Transporter: The Series continues its high-speed drive in week two, with Frank going to a hockey game and a fight breaking out, but not before the audience enjoys some truly perfectly placed verbal jabs and a few guest appearances from some familiar faces. The result is the show's most fun episode to date, reminding us that it is possible to deliver the package and enjoy the ride, too.

Remember at the end of last week when Frank said he was going to Canada? Well, he's in Canada. Toronto, specifically, using a parking garage as his personal vehicle testing ground - you have to love the part...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Man Behind The Curtain

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Ma
The sophomore (sort of) outing of Transporter: The Series sends Frank Stateside to deal with a figure from his past who, naturally, needs his old acquaintance to save the day. You may have heard this plot before, but when it includes our first look behind the curtain at what shaped Frank Martin, plus some entertaining setpieces along the way, one can't seriously argue with traversing some familiar territory.

There's a street race going on in Philadelphia, and not even a phone call from Dieter can derail Frank's best Fast & Furious impression. But of course, this isn't just a joyride; there...
