I’m only three episodes in, but totally in love with this show. So magicians, but instead of Hogwarts kids they are adults attending a secret school in upstate New York. The TV series is based off the book The Magicians by Lev Grossman. Like HP, people have magic, but unlike HP not everyone gets a shot at attending the magic school Brakesville. Even if you have magic, you might be rejected. However what you do with your magic is up to you. There does not seem to be magic police making sure magicians do not get out of control. In fact, the Dean of Students at Brakesville tells the main character, Quentin Coldwater, that he is welcome to try to take over the world after graduation if he so wishes. Since I’m only a few episodes in, I’m not quite sure where the show is going. I know that Quentin is important, but otherwise ordinary magician (at least at this point in the show). I’m secretly hoping he is somehow an amazing magician (of course). There is some bigger entity looming in the distance threatening to make trouble for the school, and a select few students are the key to…stopping it?
The Magicians has all sorts of magic and abilities that has me chomping at the bits to see more. Netflix currently has 2 seasons that I wholeheartedly intend to BINGE.
