Between this and the Halloween episode in the first half-season, it strikes me that one of the effects of streaming series, at least those that follow the "drop a whole season (or half-season) at once" model, is that they can't really time "holiday" episodes, if they do them at all, to air near the actual holiday when they take place.

I haven't really followed the behind-the-scenes news for L:R. I wonder if it was originally planned to be released on a one-at-a-time schedule?

If the librarian is a total stereotype I swear I will throw things.

Given the creative team's involvement with a bunch of movies and then a tv series about swashbuckling supernatural-investigating librarians I think odds are good they won't just lean on a lazy stereotype.
