Noah's Ark

I once had this idea for a movie script. It was about this archaelogist who was hired to find the lost treasure of the Knights Templar. The twist was that my protagonist was the anti-Indiana Jones. Indy was brave and cool and could get out of any scrap you put him in, no matter how many Nazis came at him. My guy was bumbling and not the sort you wanted to be with when danger lurked around the corner.

I also had this other idea, a fictionalized version of Hitler's quest for the Spear of Destiny, a weapon of mythic and mystical power that the Nazis really did search for during World War II.

Anyway, I didn't pursue either one, because I really couldn't get any of the elements to work. (Instead, I wrote a script about this loony 17th century Frenchwoman that was bloody awful and a waste of a year, so there you go.)

Someone, somewhere figured out how to make a movie of both the nerdy adventurer and the Spear of Destiny, and got Noah Wyle to star in it. The movie, called "The Librarian," came out a couple of years ago.

Sunday marks the return of Wyle's Flynn Carsen in "The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines" (TNT, 8 p.m.), along with original cast members Bob Newhart and Jane Curtain. (You haven't lived until you see Bob Newhart battling bad guys with kung fu).

The movie is a fairly enjoyable, if predictable, romp in which Flynn and another archaelogist (Gabrielle Anwar) must search for the hidden treasure of Solomon, including a book of immense power. Of course, assassins tail them every step of the way.

WEEKEND'S BEST BETS: For those of you who missed Chris Eccleston's run on "Doctor Who" when it was on Sci-Fi, you can catch up with that series on BBC America on Saturday at 9 p.m. Of course, the current David Tennant run is still going, and resumes tonight (Sci-Fi, 8 p.m.)

For sports fans, you can check out several key college football conference title games, including the SEC and ACC. Sunday night, Fox is running the BCS selection show at 8 p.m.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into
any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
My blog has a lot of completely unique content
I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd

After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked
on the -Notify me when new comments are added-
checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I receive 4 emails
with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a way you are able
to remove me from that service? Cheers!

obviously like your web site but you have to take a
look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the truth then
