If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/23/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, The Magicians returns for its fourth season on Syfy. In the third season, magic had gone away, and everyone lost their powers…except for Julia. The group went on an epic quest to obtain the seven keys and made their way to Blackspire Castle in hopes of restoring magic. Alice was afraid of what she would become when magic returned, so when the group was about to restore magic, she turned on them and destroyed the keys and any hopes of restoring magic. However, Julia was able to use her powers to bind Alice and recreate the keys.

Just as they were about to restore magic, Dean Fogg, Irene, and the Order showed up to stop them – the dean had been working with the library all this time! The library attached a siphon so they could control the flow of magic. Instead of killing the students, Irene used Fogg’s mind-wiping potion on them. As we jump ahead, classes have resumed, magic is being rationed by the library, and Alice (whose mind wasn’t wiped) has been locked up. The rest of the group has no idea who they are or that they have powers. They all have new personalities and professions. However, Eliot does seem to know who he and Quentin are, and we discovered that the monster from the castle has escaped and has taken over Eliot’s body.

Tonight we pick up right where we left off, in a strange new world with lots of “new” characters. Will our group ever get their memories restored and figure out who they really are? How will Alice, the only one with her memories intact, play a role in that? What does this monster inside Eliot want? Do Irene and the Order have a larger plan now that they control magic, and how do Fogg and Brakebills fit into that? It looks like we have another crazy and exciting season ahead, where anything could happen!

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I got to talk with the cast and creators of the series, where they teased the upcoming season. You can check out my videos at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s premiere, “A Flock of Lost Birds,” Brian takes a friend out for ice cream; Sam is one week away from retirement.

To catch up with the group of magicians, tune in to Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Schooled, Modern Family, Single Parents, Match Game, Big Brother, The Masked Singer, Schitt’s Creek, MythBusters Jr., Deadly Class, I’m Sorry, and Pure. (Wow, that’s a lot!)
