    Show continues to be awesome.
    My favorite characters list has basically become "All of them. All of the characters."

    Spoiler for .:
    Expect Alice now. Jerk. But I'm sure I can forgive her.

    It's too bad you aren't a fan, because she's getting her own comic book:

    Season 4 opener started slowly, but warmed up well and I was enjoying it quite a lot by the end. Keeping most of the episode focused on everyone but Elliot and Quentin was a good move.

    I have only seen bits and pieces of this show, and my wife had read all the books first.


    It can be a very sexy show, and some of the women are extremely attractive, but with the number of wonderful shows that exist from limited series, i keep becoming more and more inquisitive to whether or not harry potter might reboot with a show in a couple of years.

    Hp did a decent job with the movies, but some of the books could really have been done perfect with a season per book, just like GoT and the Magicians.

    Yup. Got caught up with everybody else, and set up the more intense stuff with E and Q nicely.

    I think rebooting Harry Potter is too much of an uphill battle this decade, but a TV show about their kids could be pretty good. Original storyline, similar atmosphere and stakes. I could see that exciting people maybe even more than new movies would.

    Especially as each new iteration written by Rowling seems to run in the direction of screenplays as opposed to literature, which I respect. Better exposure, better money, less work overall.

    Was generally happy with the season opening.
    DVR gave me trouble so I had to watch on demand with commercials, so I recorded it again to watch.

    Spoiler for in case you are behind:
    For a good 5 minutes I thought cop Kady was actually Diaz from Brooklyn 99 doing a meta cameo.

    The upside of being trapped by a looming deadline: When you have time to prepare, you can settle affairs just the way you want.

    And yeah, another enjoyable episode. Really drove home why Julia was able to succeed as a magician -- not just smart, but also has unmatched reserves of determination.

    For the most part I'm loving the new season with all the new world building and comedy and I'm glad they dropped the whole amnesia plot line so quickly. I guess I was so pissed off at the end of last season because it seemed like they got rid of all the character growth but they kept it so I'm happy.

    Also FYI it already got renewed for a 5th season!

    Agreed, the season is doing great so far.

    Spoiler for epsiode3:
    I was worried at the very start of the Ocean's 11 caper, felt like it could be cheesy but that turned out great to me. I love poker, and the throw back to Quentin's pre-Brakebills street magic roots was a nice touch for loyal viewers.

    And "Let's just say whoever holds that Bear is going to have a very bad day" was awesome.

    One underrated part of the show: the episode descriptions. Whoever is doing them is enjoying it. "Josh gives Margo a muffin; Julia drinks schnapps." "Kady gets a puppy; Quentin meets a snake." "Dean Fogg gets a new suit."

    Wait, when did Josh give Margo muffin? Or is that a euphemism?

    He was cooking muffins at the beginning of that episode. Muffins aren't pastries, they are quick breads.
