The Magicians: My perspective
Just now, I finished season 1 of SyFy's The Magicians and decided to share my perspective on the show. Right off the bat, it's a kids' story borrowing from C.S. Lewis' Narnia universe. Spice it with some Hogwarts from Rowling. Then, as the season progressed I think I'd changed perspective to The Magic School of Roke envisioned by Ursula K. Leguin. A world where magic is spun out of the true words of all things. In The Magicians magic is woven with finger dexterity, a precise art.


We are shown a partially hidden world, as in ...

Quentin Coldwater is a high school senior, but he’s still secretly obsessed with a series of fantasy novels he read when he was little, about the adventures of five children in a magical land called Fillory. Compared to that, everything in his real life just seems gray and colorless. That changes when Quentin finds himself admitted to a very secret, very exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous education in the practice of modern sorcery.

But, magic doesn’t bring Quentin the happiness and adventure and meaning he thought it would—until he and his friends make a stunning discovery: Fillory is real.

The Magicians is based on book one of author Lev Grossman's bestselling trilogy: The Magicians, The Magician King, The Magician's Land. Although the series official premieres January 25, 2016, the entire first episode was shown commercial free on Wednesday, December 16 at 10 p.m. Eastern Time/9 p.m Central Time.

Season 1 aired on Mondays at 9:00 pm.
Season 2 and 3 aired on Wednesdays at 9:00 pm.
