This is a show in which inexplicably good-looking people run around trying to kill demons and party with gods, but never at the expense of some Serious Storytelling.
Despite all of this grimness, "The Magicians" is still the funniest fantasy show on TV because it's incredibly self-aware.
As of the first episode of the fourth season, there still isn't an answer as to how the Brakebills Seven will emerge from that particular conundrum, but there's even better news: The Magicians is still an excellent show.
It was frustrating and unconvincing and potentially irresponsible, yes. But I loved it anyway.
The sudden and devastating loss of Quentin could have been left at him sacrificing himself for the good of the world and his friends, but The Magicians has always been a little more thoughtful than that.
