Love, love, love, I’m in love ❤️

I was going to do this a while ago, but I got distracted by The Lift 😁. I found you guys first, just by chance. From the first moment I heard The Librarians voice, I was in love. The stories, the writing, the voice actors, everything!! I just returned here after binging the whole of The Lift, and it feels like coming home. Corny, I know, but true, non the less. Listening is like being a child again and sitting in front of the tv in pj’s, with a bowl of Boo Berry cereal, watching cartoons before bed. Thank you 🥰. And if you ever get to Canada, I invite you all to my place for dinner (I’m permanently house bound). Okay, back to the show

Update- I’m half way through season 9, and once I get caught up, I’m definitely subscribing. But I have to say, OMG!! The Wicked Fairytales!! I’m at a lose for words. I love original fairytales, in fact I collect them. But the Librarian telling them? Out of this world! His wicked sense of humour in interpreting them kills me 😂! If for no other reason, I’m subscribing just so I can hear more. I’ll say it again- love, love, love this whole enterprise 💜💜💜

With headphones, I can appreciate...

...the production quality! Is the Librarian over the top? Yep.
