Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell + The Magicians

Is there anyone here who gave the series a try?

I less care about your opinion for the plots and more about how do you feel about the manner in which magic is being portrayed?

I watched them both and loved one considerably more than the other.

“The Magicians” starts good, I’ll admit, but it fast slumps into what feel like a teenage drama. As far as magic goes, it’s very intriguing to follow the small community of people who are so obsessed with magic they might as well be counted as legit addicts.

Naturally, “Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell” is the one I like best. As far as plot, it’s not in modern times, but slightly more liberal era. Magic there doesn’t feel much different than in The Magicians, but it still has a peculiar aspect which made me, at least, wonder and speculate, if anything then for fun.

I won’t share further to avoid spoilers. If you know the two series, this is your chance to relate your thoughts on them. If you don’t, than they might be something for you to enjoy. Either way, feel also free to add other series in the genre that left good impression on you.

Love them both! It's like Harry Potter though. I would love some day for there to be a show that depicts magic more like the procedures in the grimoires. Ghoulies and Warlock come close!

The magicians is a cylce of magic sex and gore. That's how I would describe the show, and usually in that order as well.
