The plot in this show is so deep that by the time I started watching season 3 I had no idea what was going on.

I'm looking forward to this, but I'm going to have to watch a recap since it's been close to nine months since the season 3 finale....

My favorite SyFy show of all time. I know that isn't a high bar but The Magicians deserves better than this channel.

Amazing first 2 episodes. Really one of the most original and innovative shows on TV

It's a credit to the writers that the show has maintained such a high standard of quality. It does feel like budget limitations are playing a bigger role this season. We've seen a very limited number of sets and special effects compared to earlier seasons.

I still wish they'd get rid of a couple characters, particularly the useless Josh's comic relief.

Love this show. I watched on the SyFy app a pretty funny segment, where Josh was giving Uber rides to all the characters. The funniest one, I thought, was Elliot and Q. Check it out if you can.

I love this show but I found Olvia Taylor Dudley to be so much of a distraction this episode I found it hard to keep track of what's going on.

I guess anyone that had been watching the past three seasons wouldn't be surprised but they officially ended Q's relationship with Alice, or any possibility of a relationship, this episode in a very strange way. They should have ended it two seasons ago instead of dragging it out.

The writers really don't like Alice as a character - they've gone out of their way to ensure the audience doesn't like her.

Re: The Magicians (SyFy) -- Season 4 Thread -- premieres 1/23/19

Anyone caught up? Season finale was tonight. I feel like season 4 wasn’t as good as 1-3, but was still enjoyable. The finale played out like it could be a series finale, but as far as I can tell it will be coming back.
According to what I’ve read
Spoiler:
Quentin
is not coming coming back.

That was a shocking. Of all the characters...The show was renewed earlier so if it sticks, it will be a big change.

Wow, I thought this show was popular here. It aired 13 weeks and the thread was dead for almost 2 months.

Man, it really shows that this forum just doesn't have the motivation to talk about most shows weekly.

I like the show but really nobody else was participating in the thread. Be odd to see Quentin go.

I really enjoy the show but itís one of the few I prefer to bing watch. I assumed a lot of people do that.

Re: The Magicians (SyFy) -- Season 4 Thread -- premieres 1/23/19

I just finished this season. I had quite a backlog of episodes on my DVR. Q dying got to me. This would have been the perfect series finale. I don't know how they can do season 5 without him. On a side note, I started reading the first book this past week and I'm really enjoying it so far. I was surprised Book spoiler
Spoiler:
That the characters are much younger 17-18 in the book as opposed to the series. They start out around grad school age on the tv show.
