The Magicians Season 3 Episode 7 Review: “Poached Eggs”

When it comes to brunch, poached is exactly how I like my eggs – but this week’s episode of The Magicians, “Poached Eggs” didn’t work for me. Last week was disjointed, and the theme continued into this week with this set-up episode. Julia and Alice confront and solve the problems they created last week with…

The Magicians Season 3 Episode 6 Review: Do You Like Teeth?

It’s hard for me to dislike The Magicians. This Syfy show has everything you could ever want: bisexual, magic wielding goofballs, drama, comedy, and occasionally terror. But guys, what was this week’s episode? It was all over the place to start, but mostly I had issues with the production value of the episode itself. There…

The Magicians Season 3 Episode 4 Review: Be the Penny

This week’s episode of The Magicians featured everyone’s favorite character, Penny! I’m so happy with how “Be the Penny” was structured, after last week’s choppy episode.

The Magicians Season 3 Episode 2 Review: Heroes and Morons

This week’s episode of The Magicians had two major storylines and while I found them entertaining, I was fairly annoyed at the one set on Earth. First, let me say that The Magicians has always been a very self-aware show, and I’m surprised that Quentin didn’t make a witty observation about the overall plot. Quentin,…

Shameless Season 8 Episode 10 Review: The Church of Gay Jesus

I really loved this week’s episode of Shameless. It built up so many areas of the show in ways I didn’t expect. “The Church of Gay Jesus” also felt like a movie, but I can’t place why. Maybe it was how Fiona’s relationship with Ford progressed, or the way Kassidy manipulated Carl. I thought the…

The Magicians Season 3 Episode 1 Review: The Tales of the Seven Keys

The Magicians is back, and better than ever! Nothing is more fun than watching a few master magicians squirm without their special powers. Honestly, I forgot how much I missed this show. From Quentin’s awkwardness, to everything about Margo and Elliot. I have never read the books, but I have it on good authority that…
