    On TV, they drift in and out, infecting the previously pristine, fantastic world with references to Twitter, memes, Wilson Phillips, and an extended bit from Dirty Dancing. The process of filming something often makes it concrete and therefore, too literalso The Magicians leans into its own sense of absurdity. Well, the answer to that is complicated, and includes spoilers for The Magicians books. Hale Appleman, who plays Eliot, started reading the books at the suggestion of a friend when he originally auditioned for the role of Penny. Ralph is as fantastic as Quentin, perfectly embodying the characters more annoying tendencies neurotic, privileged, infuriatingly self-centered while still making the character sympathetic. Quentin is soon after accepted to Brakebills, a school of magic along the Hudson River in upstate New York.

    There's also a great emphasis on Quentin's clinical depression, which is hinted at but never fully discussed in the novels. Premise[ edit ] Quentin Coldwater enrolls at Brakebills University 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. And with 13 episodes ahead, there's room to move the story forward, so which books will The Magicians Season 2 adapt? The main character of "The Magicians" is Quentin Coldwater Jason Ralph --a college senior who suffers from a general malaise, as if he never feels comfortable in the world. Summer Bishil as Margo Hanson, equivalent to Janet from the novels. Marlee Matlin as Harriet Schiff season 3—present; guest season 2the head of Fuzzbeat, a clickbait website that surreptitiously provides magical knowledge, [18] and later revealed to be the daughter of the librarian Zelda Schiff.

    The biggest change fans will notice is the inclusion of Julia's story line alongside Quentin's. But it could have been a series without the magic as well and still be good. Dina Meyer as the Stone Queen season 3[19] who wants Margo to marry her son. After graduation, Quentin becomes listless once more. His teachers remind him that magic is neither an art nor a science, but a craft which must be constantly practiced and honed. But in its genre and just for being so creative and different it is really a must to see.
