‘The Magicians’ promo
Based on the Lev Grossman novel. This has the Fillroy books, a grad student who looks 35 and who can’t act. He goes to magic school and there is magic, floating, cards and a glass creature. Moody model looking types lurk. There is The Beast and floating sex. Yes!

Cleared out a 2000 tape. It began with a season 4 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Goodbye Iowa’ which had bad tracking. Why is Spike and his negative opinions hanging out at Giles’ house? Riley and his neurotic self-absorption lurks. Adam is sour-faced. Tara is silent and grateful. This was not commendable.
“I will not squat in that dank hole.”
Then came a season 1 ‘Angel’ ep ‘I’ve Got you Under My Skin’. There is more bad tracking. A boy is possessed or is he? There is bad acting and everything is not as it seems. This was a portmanteau of unpleasantness.
Then came a ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ ep ‘The Darkness and the Light’ in which members of Kira’s old Resistance cell are murdered. Kira is being a surrogate mother to the O’Briens, but still feels morally compelled to do something about it. The emotional legacy of past deeds carries on. This was of dubious quality and was full of yap, yap, yap and no ingenuity.
“Some very questionable activities.”
Then came a ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Cradle Of Hope’. This was an extremely boring ep. Features a climax of a fight with baby tossing. Not significant or marvel inducing.
On ‘Hollyoaks’: Maxine knows about Sienna and Trevor and Nico? Sienna rants. Grace rants. Grace’s brothers are gross. Where is Kim? Grace’s other brother shows up. Mercedes robs a charity shop. There is failed comedy. Grace accuses Mercedes of boffing Trevor. Nancy tries to fix up Dirk and Maxine. Are Dirk and Cindy broken up? Grace is full throttle crazy. Trevor’s funeral is held. Grace is onto Sienna.
“TREVOR WASN’T A TRANNY!”
“Get my face on?”
“You were his bit on the side.”
“You just want to see birds fighting.”
“A drug dealer, human trafficking fish fancier.”
