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!

What To Watch – Wednesday, April 4, 2018

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.

TV Recaps: The Magicians – The Return of Mothra …

The Magicians
March 21, 2018

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!
