I know what you’re wondering — is this for book-The Magicians by Lev Grossman, or Syfy’s The Magicians? The answer is, both! Kind of? In some instances (cough QUENTIN cough) the show and the book are so close as to be identical, even with the obvious age differences (the show takes place at magical grad school, rather than magical college). In other cases if you squint side-eye they’re more or less the same, and in further cases they have only a few things to do with each other. So I took my favorite character bits from Season 1 of The Magicians and The Magicians (as in, Book One of the series), performed various highly complex incantations, and produced the quiz below.
