Quotes

Quentin Coldwater: So "be a magician"? Is that illegal or are you guys trying to take over the world or...?
Dean Fogg: This school exists for a single and timeless purpose - to reveal your innate abilities and hone them to the highest degree. Now, what you do with it after that is entirely up to you. If you want to take over the world, we don't teach that, but give it a go.

A long way to go
13 February 2018 | by TK32See all my reviews

The pilot episode had all the excitement of warm ice cream on a cloudy day. I will watch another episode, but I sure hope it picks up. Everything seemed very uninspired and unemotional, but there are three seasons so I figure it must pick up.
