Hat's off, without bunnies, I promise.
2 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a concept for a show that we(the fans of magic shows/movies) have been waiting for. A show that progresses very quickly through the actual learning part of magic and can then ricochet into where they actually use the magic. They rightfully picked a cast of people who seem to know how to come off with just the right amount of nerd vs sex appeal to make the show a little of both but enough to where it enhances the story lines.

Now for the actual story, so as you might have guessed from the title this show is about people who can do magic. They reside in an academy in another realm and they seem to be particularly stingy when it comes to acceptance into their school(rightfully so). The story centers around 4 students and 1 outcast. Without giving anything away this is what you wanted harry potter to be when they actually grew up but never got to see.

10/10, just right.
