I love the direction Netflix has taken over the last few years. They have so many amazing shows to watch – some are from primetime, some are from Canada and some are Netflix originals.
The Magicians premiered on the Syfy channel and has made its way to Netflix. The show began in December 2015 so it hasn’t taken long for it to appear on Netflix. Season one is now on Neflix and season 2 will premier on the Syfy channel on 1/25/17.
About the show
Quentin Coldwater enrolls at Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy to be trained as a magician, where he discovers that the magical world from his favorite childhood books is real and poses a danger to humanity. Meanwhile, the life of his childhood friend Julia is derailed when she is denied entry, and she searches for magic elsewhere.
Every character in this series is well developed and portray their roles perfectly. To me this series is like a combination of Harry Potter, Haven, but adult elements like Six Feet Under and plenty of blood and guts. This is not a show I would like my kids to watch so I find it difficult to see episodes. Thankfully Netflix solves that problem for me. So if you are looking for a new show to watch on Netflix – check out the Magicians. You will not be disappointed.
