The Magicians (S03E10) "The Art of the Deal"

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…

The Magicians (S03E09) "All That Josh"

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. The episode starts with…

The Magicians (S03E08) "Six Short Stories About Magic" Review

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. They make it their strength, because this way fans are never bored. Having a rather large cast of main characters who are often far away…

The Magicians (S03E05) "A Life In The Day" 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. Episode 3×05, “A Life in the Day” is one of those episodes. We were so busy recovering from…

The Magicians (S03E04) "Be the Penny" 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. Or can he? So many things happened this episode, that I thought it ran…

The Magicians (S03E03) "Losses of Magic"

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…

Interview with Summer Bishil, Margo in The Magicians

  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? She went from being the Queen of Brakebills University to High Queen of an actual…

The Magicians: recap and review of episodes 1 and 2 of season 3

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. Julia and Quentin were off doing their thing in New York, Eliot and Margo being…

The Magicians (S02E13) “Little Cakes”

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!)….
