Have you heard about The Magicians? That new show on SyFy that is frickin amazing? If not, shame, shame on you and everything you stand for as a person. The Magicians, another show that is based on a novel, can only really be described as a mixture of Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia. Quentin Coldwater has just been accepted into Brakebills, a school that trains magicians. He feels like his real life is about to begin, but knowing about magic is only the beginning of this crazy ride. So let me give you 10 reasons why you should watch this show.
In the last year, Netflix’s original programming has introduced me to some of the best shows I have ever seen. From Love Sick (formally Scrotal Recall) to The OA, The Marvel Series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage), Stranger Things, and last but not least, Black Mirror. The point is, our trust pal Netflix tends to do no wrong on the show side. Enter 3%, a series involving a world that has been split into a very noticeable hierarchy. Every year the youth of the world take a group of test called The Process. You are only allowed to take the test once, and if you pass you are allowed to join the best of the best in a place called The Offshore. If you fail, you are to forever live in poverty.
