The Syfy channel’s fantasy show The Magicians is coming in on its home stretch this week: as it does so, it’s starting to get dark, and really, really good.
The Magicians is coming out in a couple of weeks to the SyFy channel, and you can now watch the entire pilot online. We really enjoyed the start to the show, and we can’t wait to see where they take the first season.
Last night, SyFy aired the pilot to its other show based on a recent novel, Lev Grossman’s The Magicians. While the rest of the show will be airing in January, the pilot gives us an idea of how the network has adapted the show for cable television.
The Magicians by Lev Grossman features some incredibly adult material and some seriously dark events, along with a somewhat unlikable main character. How much of this can they actually include on the TV show? All of it, insist the show’s producers and cast. We talked to them at New York Comic-Con, and here’s what they…
Brakebills University, the secret school of magic in Syfy’s upcoming show The Magicians, isn’t Hogwarts. You don’t get a charming letter saying you’ve gotten in. In fact, this clip shows Brakebills’ admissions are about confusion, entrance exams, and no small amount of snootiness.
A few weeks back we learned that SyFy had ordered to series an adaptation of Lev Grossman’s fantasy trilogy The Magicians. Now we have a trailer, which offers a peek at Brakebills’ faculty and new recruits, and contains the line “DO SOME GODDAMN MAGIC!” Yep, we’re intrigued.
A bid back in 2012 to bring Lev Grossman’s Magicians fantasy trilogy to TV fell through, but round two has proven a success: Syfy has given its new pilot a 12-episode series order, and it will begin filming this summer.
When you sign up to become a Jedi or a Starfleet officer, you have to abide by certain rules. Like, "Don't attempt a Kolvoord Starbust." But often, these organizations seem to invent rules that have no reason, beyond creating dramatic tension. Here are the most counterproductive training rules in science fiction and…
Lev Grossman's The Magicians brought an emotional weight, and a pleasurable snarkiness, to the age-old story of magical people discovering their powers. And The Magician King expanded Grossman's world-building themes by adding a second protagonist. But how on Earth would you go about translating it to the television…
Science fiction and fantasy devoured our hearts and minds in 2011. The year's hit movies, bestselling books and buzzed-about television shows were dominated by genre fare — and a handful of people played a key part in making it happen.
Great news! Lev Grossman's acclaimed novel about a magical boarding school, The Magicians, is being adapted into a television series on Fox. And Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz, whose credits include Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Thor and X-Men: First Class, are adapting it into a pilot.
People sometimes tend to sum up Lev Grossman's fantasy debut, The Magicians, as a kind of anhedonic version of Harry Potter crossed with Narnia. But it's actually a lot deeper than that — The Magicians explored what happens when our fantasies come true, and what it means to put yourself, your screwy demented self, in…
In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, opening next week, there are seven Harry Potters. But in real life, there have been way more Potters than that. Here's the complete list of stories that people have accused of copying Potter.
