The Magician
« on: February 02, 2016, 10:15:29 PM »

Anyone else watching this really digging it myself.  The quick premises is it about a Magicians college (real magic think Hogwarts but college ).  Has different areas of expertise and even a junior college if you want to call it that for people who didn't make it.

I'm liking it.  The main character is an unbelievable asshole, though, and it's hard to really care about his problems.

Oh yeah this is fun. Like a grown up Harry Potter.
No real complaints about this at all!

Like there adding a prayer like magic to the mix. Was getting bored with the drug addiction allegory thing they had with hedge witch.  Also I personally didn't realize Ros was the little girl from the book till she showed up in this episode nice touch. Hope she isn't really dead though

I'm a couple episodes behind, but, the hedge witch thing is pretty drug like.
They really do seem like they'll all suck each other's dicks for a spell.

The drug analogy was brought up in universe last episode. Interesting new direction for the cute hedge witch.

In universe. You really dont know the term?

Quote
An in-universe answer is one that can be given without breaking the fourth wall. If you could describe the answer to a person within the story, and have them not be confused, it's probably in-universe. In-universe explanations assume that the universe in question is THE universe, not a story about another universe.

The source of the in-universe explanation is irrelevant. It doesn't matter if the answer comes from an interview (like with several Harry Potter answers) or from the story itself, as long as it can be understood within the context of the universe the story takes place in, it is in-universe.

Didnt watch last night.
The show does a great job of balancing humor (Penny's "you racist motherfucker!" From the it was all a dream episode) and horror (the beast skipping through the classroom in ep1 was nightmare fuel), so your comment really makes me want to see this soonest!

I love this show so much I gotta watch it as soon as it comes on.  So much world building shit tonight.  A library that has every book thats ever been will be or even thought of been written. Lifeforce steal to make a duplicate real life sex doll of someone (Margo is back yay!).  Sex magic and plans to summon a god and take there power (no way that not gonna end badly).  And the day Quentin learns his girl was into anal.  Oh and one of the greatest villians ever on a tv show (at least visually) returns next week.

Oh I forgot to mention the awesomeness of Quentin fantasy sex dream. "If you would shut up for 2 seconds this sex dream would pass the bechdal test " Was the line of the night.  Also this show loves pushing up against the line of what can be shown on a cable show.
