“Will You Play With Me?”
April 4, 2018
Okay kids, tonight’s the night. The Season 3 finale of The Magicians and boy did we have an episode. Betrayals? Check. Sacrifices? Check. Tacos? Check. Tick throwing shade? Check. Amazing Music Montages? Check. Great Easter Eggs? Check. Crisp dialogue, twists you can’t predict and things just make you go, the fuck is happening? Check.
Sera Gamble and John McNamara, who wrote tonight’s show (they’re also the creators, 2 of the EPs and Sera is the show runner), and Chris Fisher who directed, closed out this Season in amazing style while setting up a lot of great questions for Season 4. Without another wasted moment, jump into our recap and review of The Magicians‘ season finale, “Will You Play With Me?” … after the jump!
The Magicians season finale is tonight. I can’t even really deal with that as I’m writing my recap right now for it ahead of tonight and I don’t want it to be over. These 13 hours, as a cohesive unit, have been the most enjoyable season of television I have experienced maybe ever. Not looking forward to waiting a year until Season 4. Also on, Krypton,The Americans, and Life Sentence. But really, The Magicians, that’s all that’s important tonight.
Even with The Alienist being done for the season, we have good choices to watch tonight, including DC’s Legends of Tomorrow at 8pm on The CW, The Terror on AMC at 9p, Good Girls on NBC at 10p, and also at 10p, the series premiere of The Crossing, a new small town sci-fi show on ABC.
“The Fillorian Candidate”
March 28, 2018
Its Fillory’s Spring Awakening, democracy-style!! But, the real star of tonight’s episode is the continued growth of Julia’s character as she embraces her ever increasing Godhood. Elsewhere, Kady Meets 23TL Penny and Alice and Quentin continue being Alice and Quentin. Never have two people each been the other’s Fuck, Marry AND Kill! *sigh*
Don’t waste a second more, jump into our deep dive recap and review of “The Fillorian Candidate” (Spoilers! Last Warning) … after the jump!
Major League Baseball begins its season today but we’re not here to talk about that (Go Mets!).
No, today we’re looking at the series premiere of Freeform’s newest show, Siren. Mermaids? I’m in! Siren has a 2 hour premiere tonight but if that’s not your thing (mermaids should definitely be your thing), there is long awaited Scooby Doo crossover episode on tonight’s Supernatural, all new Gotham, Arrow and S.W.A.T. Also, Impractical Jokers and those guys are hysterical. Lots of choices to fill your TV viewing night!
Its Magic Wednesdays which means that The Magicians is our Top Pick to Watch Tonight but we’re also excited to watch new Krypton and the season premiere of The Americans. Also, Riverdale, Life Sentence and the special Andrew Lloyd Webber Tribute to a Superstar. Lots of good choices tonight!!
This week, we take a bit of a breather after a series of emotional and impactful episodes that have really moved the plot along. Not that tonight doesn’t have some emotional resonance, but we’re not terribly closer to solving the problem of the Fairy Realm Key after tonight’s episode. You’ll notice this episode is very self-contained in a few familiar spots – its because tonight’s ep is a classic “Bottle Episode”; a trick of producers to save cash on new sets and props and dressing which is necessary in order to pay for larger expenditures during the rest of the season (looking at you music licensing rights for “All About Josh“). The upside of these types of episodes is that you tend to get great dialogue and character beats – very much like good stage plays because its basically characters on screen not moving around much. Tonight doesn’t disappoint.
Let’s jump right in to Julia and Josh’s excellent adventure to another timeline, Timeline twenty-Three. Our deep Dive Recap and review (spoilers ahead!!) … after the jump!
Shadowhunters leads our Top Picks for What To To Watch Tonight with Black Lightning and Rise rounding out the Top Three. However, a sitcom making its return to television will be what everyone is talking about. The Roseanne reboot finally premieres tonight with back to back episodes and all eyes will surely be on the Connor Clan. Will you be watching?
