The Magicians (Wednesdays, 9/8C) returns with our protagonists still stuck in a world without magic – mostly – but there are glimmerings that the situation can be reversed…
The penultimate episode of The Magicians: Season Two (Syfy, Wednesdays, 10/9C) finds Eliot banished from Fillory; Quentin and Julia have broken Alice’s shade out of Underworld; Josh found himself high-fiving an Eliot who was suddenly not there); King Idri and a good many Fillorians are rats, and Senator Gaines has reached his limit with his dad.
In other words, same stuff, different day.
The Magicians (Syfy, Wednesdays, 9/8C) continues to delight with an episode that our protagonists back on their heels in light of new revelations. Meanwhile, The Beast sings – really, really well (and quite annoyingly).
Hotel Spa Potions opens with a shot of what looks like sugar-frosted Cheerios drifting through space, suggesting that no matter what we might be expecting, that’s not what we’re going to get.
The second season premiere of The Magicians (Syfy, Wednesdays, 9/8C), Knight of Crowns, finds our protagonists stuck in Fillory while Julia attempts to gain The Beast’s aid in her taking revenge on Reynard, the Fox – while he has an intriguing counter offer for her.
Heading into Season 2 of Syfy’s The Magicians, this group of unlikely heroes have been thrust into even more dangerous and unfamiliar territory, and must draw upon their novice skills to defeat a threat that could destroy the magical world itself. Driven by power, revenge and survival, they learn that those who entered the hauntingly beautiful world of Fillory will never be the same as those who leave.
Season 2 of The Magicians is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 25. Check out the new trailer after the break.
The Magicians (Syfy, Mondays, 9/8C) has become this curious mix of Harry Potter and Narnia – with a healthy helping of WTF on all sides.
In The Writing Room, Quentin learns there’s a permanent key to Fillory if only he can find it – which leads him, Alice, Eliot and Penny into a danger they’ve never even imagined before.
This week’s episode of The Magicians (Syfy, 9/8C) is entitled The Strangled Heart, which is appropriate because this is the episode where the show finds its heart and soul after seven episodes of slowly and carefully (for the most part) building our familiarity with the core characters.
Now that all that nasty exposition and character introduction has been done, The Magicians (Syfy, Mondays, 9/8C) moves forward with some major developments – most of which are, to say the least, troublesome.
Dean Fogg (Rick Worthy) is back – with glass eyes, and experimenting with styles of dark glasses (one pair calls to mind ‘the blues… and pinks’). After three months of study and practice, it’s time for the new students to learn their disciplines.
Syfy’s The Magicians (Mondays, 9/8C) is a series that looks at what it might be like to have real magic in a real place (New York City) right now – from the point of view of Quentin Coldwater, a graduate student who kind drifts onto the quad at Breakbills College for Magical Pedagogy, and his best friend, Julia. Created by Sera Gamble (Supernatural) and John McNamara (Vengeance Unlimited, Aquarius), The Magicians is adapted from the bestselling novels by Lev Grossman.
Last week, Gamble and series star Jason Ralph spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about the series – how it hews closely to the book; how it differs, and what author Lev Grossman’s involvement is.
