REVIEW: The Magicians Season One
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

REVIEW: The Magicians Season One"Based on Lev Grossman's New York Times best seller, The Magicians centers on Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph), a brilliant grad student chosen to attend Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy, a secret upstate New York university specializing in magic. He and his 20-something friends soon discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real -- and poses grave danger to humanity." That's the official description for Syfy's new series The Magicians Season One, now on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD.

We have a lonely main character who learns that he can do magic, and then goes off to a secret (and yes hidden) school to learn how to utilize his powers. However, although the series has a slow (and familiar start), things get more diverse and interesting after the first few episodes...
