“Heroes and Morons”
January 17, 2018
Following last week’s meeting with the Great Cock, the Epic Quest began in earnest tonight with Eliot and an unpredictable traveling party setting sail on the Muntjac, while Quentin, Julia, Josh and some reluctant add-ons try to track down Mayakovsky’s batteries here on Earth.
Fun fact, a muntjac is a deer. That’s not really fun but writer of The Magicians, Sera Gamble, confirmed that the muntjac is a type of deer that exists both on Earth AND in Fillory, and that IS a fun fact. Recap full of spoilers … after the jump!
Heroes and Morons, episode 2 of Season 3 of The Magicians, airs this Wednesday, January 17, but we are taking a First Look at the episode photos TODAY as well as an amazing trailer telling us the story of “The Tale of Seven Keys.”
“The Tales of the Seven Keys”
January 10, 2018
The Magicians returned tonight to start us on a new epic quest which will take a good season to play out. We were re-acquainted with all of our favorite Magicians and over the course of this single hour, heard more memorable lines than you’re likely to hear on any other show over the course of a whole season. The writing and delivery on The Magicians is so spot on, its equal parts, nerdy, fantastical, whimsical, badass-ical, sassy and sincere. Its like being lulled by a train smoothly rolling on its tracks with a rhythmic clackety clack that just sweeps you along for the ride. Anyway, more thoughts on this amazing episode and the season outlook at the end of the post. Grab some bacon, sit back and enjoy.
Warning: This is going to be a long post, so drink lots of water (you must be diligent about hydration) and buckle up. Before we meet the Great Cock of the Darkling Woods and embark on an Epic Quest with our friends, let’s talk about what happened before … Continue reading “TV Recaps: The Magicians – I’m Grace Park”
Magic Wednesdays are officially a thing. With The Librarians still chugging along for a few more weeks and season premiere of The Magicians tonight, we don’t even know what to do with ourselves. Add in more Vikings and Knightfall and Wednesdays are over flowing with watchable TV right now!
I don’t like combining news into the daily “What To Watch” but it happens over the course of a day, something gets published or released that I want you to experience with me. I am going to try to gather those items into a separate daily post which I am calling, for right now, “The Daily Download.”
Today’s offerings include 3 minutes worth of The Brave, which returns next Monday, and a trippy trailer for The Magicians (ahead of Season 3’s premiere next Wednesday).
Season 3 of the amazing Syfy show, The Magicians, begins on January 10. Today, NBC Universal released the first still photos of the new season! Take a look below at 21 pics from the season premiere, including several shots of Faran Tahir as “The Great Cock.” Interestingly, there is no Penny in these shots.
To catch you up, Season 2 ended with Ember killing Umber, Quentin killing Ember, a Plumber turning off all of the magic (except for Julia, she’s still got magic), and Eliot and Margo arguing over how to rule magic-less Fillory. Also, the Fairies are knocking on their kingdom’s door. Season 3 picks up with the quest to bring magic back.
The Magicians stars Jason Ralph (as Quentin Coldwater), Stella Maeve (as Julia Wicker), Olivia Taylor Dudley (as Alice Quinn), Hale Appleman (as Eliot Waugh), Arjun Gupta (as William ‘Penny’ Adiyodi), Summer Bishil (as Margo Hanson), Rick Worthy (as Dean Fogg), Jade Tailor (as Kady Orloff-Diaz), Brittany Curran (as Fen), and Trevor Einhorn (as Josh Hoberman).
