350: Magic Pixie Dream Girl
Apr 29, 9:01 AM
“The Magicians” – This week we draw your attention to another excellent TV series that recently concluded a run of episodes: SyFy’s “The Magicians”. Based on a series of books by Lev Grossman, this is a show that starts out as a mash-up of Harry Potter and Narnia and goes in some very surprising directions while continually improving in quality. Love, war, sex, fairies, gods (some evil, some capricious, some just annoying)—there’s a lot to love about this show. In the first half of the episode we talk generally about the show and why we like it; the second half, after the Spoiler Horn, is devoted to breaking down the events of its just-completed second season. (Content advisory: “The Magicians” contains a couple examples of sexual assault/abuse. And we talk about them.)
Host Jason Snell with Glenn Fleishman and Moisés Chiullan.

I really wish Serenity Caldwell had been able to make the discussion of this series…
NOTE: I’m using a different podcasting app — officially switching from Overcast to iCatcher — which is why the official episode summaries now appear when I listen to them. Is it too much? Do you need it?
