The Magicians—Pacing Issues

The Magicians is a tv show about students at a college for magicians. I’ve only gotten an episode and a half in. The pacing feels off to me and hasn’t allowed time for me to get attached to the characters. That said, the effects are great and it looks like an intriguing world. There’s a freaky moth-faced villain and a storyline focusing on the main character’s best friend who’s learning to be a hedge-witch after failing to get into magic college. Also be aware that the show is violent—someone’s already had their eyes plucked out. I may give it another shot but maybe not.

My apologies for not having a more well-rounded review this week. It’s the end of the semester and school and holiday/family stuffs are taking the bulk of my time. I should have a proper post next week.
