“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.

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"”
