The Magicians Ep 2 - My Thoughts
I enjoyed episodes one but I didn't like several of the main characters and was hoping they would grow on me.. well I'm happy to report that they have. The pace continues to be a bit sluggish but for some reason I don't care. I think I'm enjoying the world and I know the story is going somewhere. There is a bigger picture here and they give me just enough that I'm excited to see what's next. This episode resolved the cliffhanger of episode 1 but they didn't really explain anything. I heard someone say that the main character "Quentin" reminds them of Charlie Brown and that's a good description of his personality. It's a hard character to get behind because of his woe is me attitude. What's funny is one of the characters that I wasn't feeling in episode one has made a 360 and is quickly becoming one of my favorites (Eliot). And my least favorite storyline (but I understand why it's there) is Julia's dealing with Magic outside of the school. To her magic is like a drug and she is definitely an addict.
This is quickly become "must see" TV for me. I look forward to new episodes each week and watching this fantastical yet based in reality storyline unfold.
