The season finale of The Expanse (Syfy, Tuesday, 10/9C) is thrilling, scary and just a wee bit convoluted – pretty much like the rest of season one. It ramps up the danger while answering some big questions and setting some very big wheels in motion.
Then it ends on a cliffhanger of epic proportions…
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.
The Expanse (Syfy, Tuesdays, 10/9C) has been carefully weaving together a series of plotlines involving political leaders on Earth, the survivors of an ice mining ship called the Canterbury and a cop who’d been given the task of finding the heir to an Earther billionaire who’d gone missing.
Along the way, the events lurking behind these plotlines had made for a cold-war-heating-up scenario between Earth, Mars and the people of asteroid belt. Now, however, things are coming together – not necessarily in a good way.
Syfy’s The Magicians (Mondays, 9/8C) is adapted from the bestselling trilogy by Lev Grossman. It follows Quentin Coldwater and his best friend Julia as they discover that magic exists and while one is accepted into a hidden magic school and the other is not.
Essentially, series creators Sera Gamble and John McNamara are approaching the series as dealing with magic in our real world, right now, in New York City. It doesn’t take long for the series to get to the magic, but it’s the characters who will make it work.
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.
Baltimore FBI agent Flynn Carroll’s (Nathan Phillips, Wolf Creek) life is about to change. He’s being recruited by the ETU – Exo-Terrorist Unit of Homeland Security. He thinks his wife was taken by humans. He is wrong.
Syfy’s Hunters, from the writings of Whitley Strieber and produced by The Walking Dead’s Gale Anne Hurd, is set to premiere on April 11th. Check out the new trailer after the break.
Syfy is making the premiere episode of its prestige series The Magicians – based on the best selling novels of Lev Grossman, available online at Syfy.com and On Demand beginning today. The premiere will also be avialable on Facebook, YouTube, Perk TV and Rokju the week of January 11th.
The series follows Quentin, a brilliant but aimless grad student who finds himself led to Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy, a secret upstate New York university specializing in magic. Somehow, it all ties into a series of fantasy novels he and his friends read as kids.
The Magicians premieres on Syfy on Monday, January 29th (9/8C). For further details, follow the jump.
