Could any other bear be so adorable? No. Absolutely not. He’s that ragged artist, brooding over his drink in the dark corner of the wine bar, who you’ve decided you can change. Others have tried and failed, but you’re different. Hopeless cases are your weakness. You like scrubbing the bad luck off a person and […]Read More The Magicians – The Bad News Bear
Last week’s episode of The Magicians didn’t have me jumping out of my sofa (like the Les Miz episode) or screaming at the screen “That’s awesome writing!” like Be the Penny. Probably because it was the reveal episode. Spell gone. Thank Julia again, for better or worse. But it did have one element that I’ve grown […]Read More The Magicians – Lost, Found, F…ed
It feels like ages since we last saw our favorite ensemble on screen. Honestly, I had forgotten some key plot points because a year is just too long, SyFy. It probably doesn’t help that I’m in the middle of reading The Magician’s Land, which only now in book three reveals Alice the Niffin, where magic […]Read More The Magicians – A Flock of Lost Birds
If the magicians were athletes, what would be their winter sport? Caught up in the excitement of the Pyeong-Chang Winter Olympics, I kept wondering that question. Clearly I got snowboarding and magic on the mind. Here’s my breakdown of our beloved characters and their showing at the Winter Olympics. Eliot– With all the glitzy costumes […]Read More The Magicians – 2018 Winter Olympics
It’s safe to say Be the Penny was one of the best episode of The Magicians. It was my favorite, and that means ranking above the Les Miz episode, which is almost blasphemy for me! Penny, a rather forgettable character in the books, is brought to life brilliantly by Arjun Gupta and the writers of the […]Read More The Magicians – Be the Penny
Loved the season opener to The Magicians. Heroes and Morons – not so much. It was half a great episode. Eliot sailing off on his quest with his “family” intact was wonderful. Was that Margot getting choked up and providing solid advice about making smart decisions? Were those calculating eyes tearing up? I loved her […]Read More The Magicians – Heroes and Morons
And the quest is on! It looks like we are in for ships, high seas, and keys! Need to get caught up on The Magician King fast? Here’s my listicle for last season that pretty much covers how the show is tracking with the books. Hey, we ain’t Novel2Screen for nothin’. Consider this your spoiler alert. […]Read More The Magicians Are Back!
Tonight was the Season 2 finale of The Magician. The creators of the show are torturing us by making us wait until 2018 for Season 3. 2018!! Anything could happen by then. That’s like 5 years on Fillory. Fortunately, there are the books. Oh, yeah. The Magicians is based on a book series by Lev […]Read More The Magicians – Season 2’s Nod to The Magician King
Ever since this year’s Oscar season and #OscarsSoWhite, I can’t shake my nagging observation about the current state of the film and television industry: that TV, the item once relegated as “furniture” on my high school drama teacher’s T-shirt, is now the forerunner of the two mediums. Lately, the studios are content to churn out […]Read More Diversity in TV: Is the Small Screen Better?
The Magicians has quickly become one of my favorite TV shows. The fact that it got picked up for a second season only halfway through the first season is a testament that many others feel the same. It’s Fantasy. It’s Sci-Fi. It’s Drama. It’s Thriller. It’s Comedy. It’s Awesomeness. Based on Lev Grossman’s books, the […]Read More Why I Love The Magicians
