The Magicians – The Bad News Bear

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 […]

Based on Lev Grossman’s books, the […]
