Definitely in the realm of fantasy. I was underwhelmed by the last installment but I have high hopes for this new one. Dangerous ground, I know.
This one looks pretty freakin’ good.
Just in case you haven’t seen it on one of the million other sites that has posted it…
I’ll just leave this here for you to enjoy.
There are some touching human moments in Game of Thrones that often get overshadowed by the violence.
If the trailer I posted earlier didn’t do it for you I understand. It was nice but not very exciting. This one that just dropped will make up for it, I promise.
I’m just going to leave this here and walk away. I need to be alone for a minute…
So a few days ago I posted the trailer for Childhood’s End from Syfy at which time I commented that it looked like Syfy was trying to up their game. Today I saw this trailer for The Magicians over on SF Signal and it just further solidified that notion.
You have to appreciate the effort they’re displaying and I love that they’re going old school with Clarke and also very new school with Grossman at the same time. It’s like they’re actually listening to genre fans now and I, for one, am starting to feel some love for Syfy again. Who’d have thunk it?
I’ve not read the Fillory series yet, they’re in my stack somewhere, so I don’t know if this looks like a faithful adaptation but I have to say I think it looks promising. It has certainly made me want to move The Magicians closer to the top of the pile so I can read the original before the show comes out next year.
Any Grossman fans out there want to chime in? Has this show been on your radar or is this the first you’ve heard of it like me? Are you feeling any more sanguine about Syfy or are you still trying to get over Sharknado I, II, and III?
So this. I don’t know. I just read Childhood’s End a few weeks ago and it did not look like this in my mind. It’s not a bad trailer at all… it just reads more as a horror film than a sic-fi one to me what with the gnarly spider veins and the screaming and all. Spider veins? Where was that in the book?
Of course, it’s Syfy, so we have to cross our fingers and hope more than usual that they don’t screw the pooch completely. The big reveal should be interesting to see at least. I wonder how many people will be surprised by that? It’s been out forever and I was certainly aware of it before I picked up the book. I guess we should keep it on the down low in case there’s a few folks left who don’t know. In which case I need to shut up.
What do you think? I know we’re all gonna watch it but is anyone actually looking forward to it?
