I've just finished binge watching the first four seasons of The Magicians, and I'm going to give it a fairly large thumbs up!

Um.  No thumbs up smiley.  Well, I would if we had a thumbs up Smiley.  I've sure the Wanderer will plant a new smiley icon soon.

Anyway, after a bit of a slowish start, it moved into gear from around season two onwards.  The characters are a well rounded bunch, with each of them having various endearing, or not, qualities.

Anyway, the various plot lines intertwine pretty well, and the whole fucked up place of Fillary brought me many moments of mirth. 

There were some moments though, when I found myself screaming at the screen when they were obviously walking into a trap or some such.  Still, the show can survive these, if you just take a deep breath and count to ten.

The odd musical numbers that are interjected here and there also, somehow, manage to work well.

Now I'm just waiting for the (final) season, season 5, to arrive on Prime.


Ren Rating: An excellent choice for a binge bonanza. At least 7 stars. (Out of 10)  (Mmm, we need a star icon too.)
