In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much.

When thinking about what to do for these, the piece that stood out for me was the first scene of the first episode of The Librarians. Which I managed to find on YouTube:

When I first saw it I knew very little of what it was about. The first couple of minutes of this are not that exciting, with some military people and bad guys shooting at each other. And then the Librarian falls into the scene (literally). And is unconcerned about all the people standing around holding guns and is more worried about a magical artifact. At the end of the scene he introduces himself and I wanted to know more about what a Librarian did. And what sort of person he was.

There are some TV series it can take a while to get into it. Having watched all thirteen episodes of Dark Matter, I still can't decide if I like it or not. But with The Librarians, I knew I was going to like it by the end of that scene. Which is why it stands out so much.

And as a bonus, here's a [info]festivids fanvid for the first two series of The Librarians:

It shows how fun The Librarians is, but also fits the action to the words (which is how I think all fanvids ought to be). (warning: it is set to a Taylor Swift song - although I enjoyed it anyway)
