Topic: The Magicians (2015)

The show pivots around a group of New York-based twenty-year-olds embroiled in a world where magic exists. Sera Gamble, former Supernatural showrunner, and In Plain Sight's John McNamara are on board as executive producers and writers for the project.

The pace is sometimes all over the place and the hand movements for magic look a bit funny/weird at times but the special effects overall look great and the cliffhangers were nice, especially the ending of the pilot was awesome.

So far i like it.

Re: The Magicians (2015)

Like what I've watched so far with one exception; I'm not very keen on how the lead male character is being portrayed/acted.  I can see they're trying to make him appear vulnerable and "innocent" with a "destiny" (a sort of modern day Frodo) but, sometimes, he just comes across as dithering and unsure.

Re: The Magicians (2015)

Awesome twisty episode (ep 4). This show is interesting.

Re: The Magicians (2015)

this is one of those "It is alright so I will be watching, but probably wont care if I miss one" shows. worth watching, but not really that drawn in. All the characters seem to be... self-absorbed selfish assholes, although there is a reason why which is explained, so... meh... I don't know what to think of this show

Kind of interesting, worth watching if you got excess free time, but wouldn't recommend, more of a "background" show when you do other things for me.

EDIT: my post is a bit contradictory, that is because my feelings about this show are too.

Re: The Magicians (2015)

I like it so far, all episodes felt different, especially the 4th ep was great.

And aww that Cancerpuppy.

Re: The Magicians (2015)

Some funny scenes again. The writers and actors and whatnot are clearly having some fun with this series.

Example - Female Anatomy Sex Lesson

Re: The Magicians (2015)

I've had some doubts about this serie, but the ending of that last episode won me ever.
This is evolving in a nice direction.

Re: The Magicians (2015)

So excited for the next season. This show is ridiculous and frankly, I don't think it's the best out there but I am thoroughly entertained by it.

Re: The Magicians (2015)

I liked the idea behind this show and the world/universe it was building but I couldn't stand the winging, whining, main character.  He spent most of the series miserable and feeling sorry for himself; I just wanted to give him a good slap across the back of the head and tell him to "get over it".
The other characters were very good though.

Re: The Magicians (2015)

I actually like the atmosphere there and it is not the production of some Teenie Series. It is really mature. But you need give at least 6 episodes to understand the plot, because the beginning is a little bit confusing. So you need time to understand the story about the witchcraft. smile
I am curious about the next season.
