“Can I start over?” Julia Wicker asked in the pilot, upon being told that she wasn’t a good fit for Brakebills. It seems like in the season 4 premiere, she finally got that chance to start over.… More “The Magicians (S04E01) “A Flock of Lost Birds””
Double review for two intense episodes. “Twenty Three” and “The Fillorian Candidate” are further proof of the fact that season 3 of The Magicians really can do no wrong.… More “The Magicians (S03E11-12) "Twenty Three" & "The Fillorian Candidate" Review”
After last week’s gloriously unifying episode, this week on The Magicians was not about unity. Our questers had completely separate storylines. I was looking forward to Quentin (Jason Ralph) reuniting with his life partner Eliot (Hale Appleman) and with Margo (Summer Bishil), but my shipper heart was not satisfied because their paths only crossed for one scene and it was anything but romantic.… More “The Magicians (S03E10) "The Art of the Deal"”
If The Magicians decided that they’re going to do one musical episode every season, that’s more than fine by me. This time, bursting out in song wasn’t a nerdy or meta-televisual moment, it was truly embedded in the plot as Kady, Quentin and Alice find themselves trapped in a party universe.… More “The Magicians (S03E09) "All That Josh"”
My favorite thing about The Magicians is that they’re not afraid to go with unusual choices. The directorial style often changes drastically between episodes, and they don’t apologize for it.… More “The Magicians (S03E08) "Six Short Stories About Magic" Review”
The Magicians is a show that never fails to present fans with crazy storylines. We have no time to dwell about our own suspension of disbelief, too caught up in the emotional mess we are reduced to.… More “The Magicians (S03E05) "A Life In The Day" Review”
Episode 3×04 “Be The Penny” was narratively very innovative because the whole thing was explored from Penny’s point of view. We watch as Penny watches his friends react to his death, and just like us, Penny can’t do anything about it.… More “The Magicians (S03E04) "Be the Penny" Review”
The Magicians is one of those shows that sometimes can be really serious, and some other times you wonder if it’s a straight up satire. Episode 3 of season 3 was in the latter category. The plot throws some things at you and you don’t know whether you’re supposed to laugh at the sheer absurdity of everything or read deeper into it.… More “The Magicians (S03E03) "Losses of Magic"”
Summer Bishil stars as ‘Margo Hanson’ in SyFy’s The Magicians currently in its third season airing new episodes on Wednesdays at 9/8c.
- How do you feel about the changes your character has undergone in the past three years?
Episode 1: The Tales Of The Seven Keys
The Magicians are back, and magic might be gone, but they’re back with a bang.
The season 3 premiere gave us early season 1 vibes with the way the characters were paired.… More “The Magicians: recap and review of episodes 1 and 2 of season 3”
The episode begins with Ember giving us a run down about the creation of Fillory from season 1 to now. Giving his own spin on things you see that yeah Ember is a huge jerk (he didn’t let Martin back into Fillory because he was uncomfortable looking at Martin after he was molested; poor Martin!).… More “The Magicians (S02E13) “Little Cakes””
Julia carried Alice’s shade from the Underworld and helps Quentin and Mayakovsky bring Alice back to human form. Niffin Alice is needless to say less than pleased but they manage to bring her back but the human Alice is also less than thrilled to be back in one piece.… More “The Magicians (S02E12) “Ramifications””
Julia and Quentin track down the Ancient One who will help them cross over into the Underworld if Quentin gives up the button he uses to go to Fillory. Reluctantly Quentin agrees so the Ancient One (who has sort of an attitude) says they have until morning to come back before she eats their bodies.… More “The Magicians (S02E11) “The Rattening” Review”
Remember when Dean Fogg said that they tried to take down the Beast 39 times (40th time’s the charm I guess)? We open with one of the Alternate Universes where Julia attended Brakebills. Not only was Julia incredibly gifted but she was a favorite of Dean Fogg.… More “The Magicians (S02E10) “The Girl Who Told Time””
The niffin is out of the bag as Quentin is taken downstairs to a cage next to a guy who has the worst kind of STD that turns him into a werewolf. Makes herpes look like a mosquito bite. Penny and Kady spring Julia from Fillory jail (bad idea) while Eliot and Margo deal with more problems.… More “The Magicians (S02E09) “Lesser Evils” Review”
