TV Recap: The Magicians – Friends and Enemies …

The Magicians
“All That Josh”
March 7, 2018

Some shows would do this and it comes off gimmicky.  When The Magicians does something  like this, it feels organic and you think, “yes, of course, that makes sense to me” because that is just how well done this show is created, written, and acted.

Enjoy our deep dive recap and review … after the jump!!

What To Watch – Monday, March 5, 2018

Monday Nights are a great time for TV; with the addition of Good Girls (and maybe McMafia, we’re adding it to our test bubble list) in the 10pm slot, we continue to have multiple quality dramas in that hour; The Alienist continues to be supreme entertainment in the 9pm hour and at 8pm, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow have a bunch more episodes before their season runs dry.

Before you watch The Alienist tonight, make sure you’re caught up on all of the explosive action from last week’s episode with our Deep Dive Recap & Review Here!

Not on the official What To Watch cause its really niche but the final 3 original episodes of Star Wars: Rebels airs tonight on Disney XD, beginning at 8:30pm.  Time to say goodbye to Ezra and the crew of the Ghost.
