      Adaptation from the books

      As someone who read the books(and thoroughly enjoyed them), I can't justify giving this TV series a poor review. Obviously this isn't 100% true to the books, but no video adaptation ever is. Authors will tell you themselves that great books don't translate into great video without being heavily altered, and it's true. They're 2 entirely different forms of media, and require many alterations to translate over to another form. That being said, this is a great show. It takes place in the same world, with the same fundamentals, covering much of the same information, and does an excellent job at portraying the characters from the book. In my opinion they chose a fantastic actor for Quentin, it's spot on. Pulls off all of Q's quirks excellently.

      I have to admit I passed this over on it's initial airing on SyFy (geeze,,I still hate that name) but once I saw a few of the second season episodes (it's on before The Expanse) I got hooked and had to see how it all started. It does flow better without the commercial breaks and with the saltier language, tho. Give it a try!

      Based on a trilogy of books, The Magicians definitely has a bit of Harry Potter vibe but is definitely darker and bloodier. Certainly not for kids, the series follows a pack of unlikely students (and some not) of a school of magic as they discover and attempt to stop a great evil. While it can be slow at times, the journey is well worth it and ends with a considerable cliffhanger for Season 2 to resolve.

      The Magicians is absolutely fantastic. Based on the novel trilogy, of the same name, this show quickly takes on it's own story pathways, leaving even the book reader guessing and longing for more. It starts out like a Harry Potter for adults, but it's so much more. I'd almost describe it as college Harry Potter meets Narnia, meets Game of Thrones.

      I watched this when it aired on Syfy and loved it. I only had one complaint and that was the censoring of the language. It's not a huge issue, but it always seems to pull me out of what's going on in the scene. Thankfully, that's not a problem with the blu ray release. All censoring is gone. If you haven't seen this show yet, do yourself a favor and watch.

      First season of a promising series for SyFy, more an adult variation on themes from Harry Potter. SyFy renewed the series, which should continue to do well. Packaging (first run) has a holographic image on the front. Be warned, the content is certainly not child-friendly in terms of some of the imagery, but this is a unique, fun ride.

      I was disappointed by this show. I had read the three books it comes from, and really enjoyed them, but they made so many changes to this in the translation that it is almost a completely different story. The production quality is good, but I really don't understand why they changed things the way they did.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
