SyFy is launching "The Magicians" on January 25th, but last week aired the pilot episode (without commercial interruption, very nice). I was skeptical at first, feeling like the set-up was too much like a Harry Potter / Hogwarts clone, just with older students. (Putting them in college and grad school age range keeps the actors from morphing mid-season from puberty.) Then by the end they hooked me with a very dark turn of events and some excellent creepy special effects. I caught the name of Sera Gamble on the opening credits - she was at the helm of at least one season of Supernatural for theCW. I'm on board now. Anyone with me?
