Quentin Coldwater, a grad student at Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, has been fascinated by the magical fantasy world since he was young. But as he has gotten older, Quentin and his 20-something friends have discovered that the magical world they read about as children is not only real, but poses dangers to humanity. While studying at the secret upstate New York school, the friends struggle to cope with the aftermath of a catastrophe that befalls the institution. The fantasy series is based on a series of novels by Lev Grossman.
The world and perspective of "The Magicians" is more immediately interesting than the characters. Jason Ralph’s Quentin is a homely and haunted magic nerd that toggles between sad-eyed innocence and wide-eyed wonder, a stark and necessary contrast to his cynical peers and classmates...The question Grossman was answering — “Can dreams and nostalgia ruin one’s present?” – is worth asking again, here at the moment of peak pop pastiche..."The Magicians" prompts the question and entertains us with it at the same time. Maybe it can say something about how to carry our past forward without being owned by it. Or maybe it will come to own us, too.--Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly, December 16, 2015
