BMC - cloisters

Suspension of disbelief

Hanging out and watching bad television with amybang. It's telling, I think, that out of all of the ridiculous things that have happened in "The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines" (librarian as fact machine and action hero, magical books, plot twists that a five year old could see coming, the book of Solomon being written in English, various crazy coincidences, obvious editing mistakes), the thing we can't get past is that the main character, Flynn, somehow managed to complete five PhDs by his 32nd birthday.
