‘The Magicians’ Faces “The Serpent” in an Episode All About Magical Terrorists and Human Nature

Like most episode titles of The Magicians, this week’s title , “The Serpent,” has many layers. There’s the obvious reference: The Serpent is the name of a magical terrorist group that is infecting hedge witches with earworms that make them boil to death from the inside if they do magic. But then there’s the subtler reference, a nod to the notion that many “serpents” in the world aren’t an evil, external force looking to do harm, but are things that live inside us, issues or facets of ou...

Spider-Man : Into The Spiderverse Academy & Golden Globe Awards

I very seldom post pictures of myself, but it’s not everyday one get to hold the Academy and Golden Globes award statues; both which Spider-Man : Into The Spiderverse won for the Best Animated Feature Film.

Nunes And The Peter Thiel Era

First of all, I should introduce myself: I’m Jeet Heer, a contributing editor at The New Republic. I’m filling in for Josh as he takes a much-deserved break. Having followed TPM from its earliest days as a blog covering the 2000 (!) election and its aftermath, I’m honored to be here. I wanted to flag a story from Monday night that is both comically absurd but also has a sinister side: Republican Congressman Devin Nunes’ announced lawsuit against Twitter and three Twitter accounts who he claims h...

A Corporate Confession of Sin & Assurance of Pardon

One of my favorite elements of a worship service is a confession of sin and the subsequent assurance of pardon. At Grace Fellowship Church we include this in almost every service and, from time to time, I like to share an example. Here is how we confessed our sins together using Psalm 32 as our guide. *** We just sang together, “All the redeemed washed in his blood / Come and rejoice in his great love!” One of the ways God displays his great love for us in his willingness to fo...

Joshua Kelley passed on NFL, stayed at UCLA to ‘get even better’

LOS ANGELES — Last August, Joshua Kelley was a walk-on who had never appeared in a Division I football game. Four months, 1,243 yards and a record-setting performance against USC later, the jovial running back was weighing a jump to the NFL draft. The rise was humbling, said Kelley, who last season became UCLA’s first 1,000-yard rusher since 2015. He appreciated the opportunity to possibly fulfill a childhood dream. But as the redshirt junior considered the decision during the offseason, Kelley ...

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine

Could the threat of extinction be humanity's opportunity to get our collective s#*t together? Two centuries since the Enlightenment, the war between reason and belief is still raging. Why? Why is it still hard to explain to some people what a podcast is? None I like to think. If I didn't, this would be the wrong job for me. But I realize that as open-minded as I like to consider myself, I've taken a thick, black sharpie to certain areas of the philosophical map, scrawling "here there be mo...

Minnesota State Tops Lake Superior State to Take Game One of WCHA Semi

Minnesota State earned a 2-1 victory over Lake Superior State on Friday evening in Mankato to take game one of their WCHA playoff semifinal best-of-three series. The game got off to a fast start with three goals scored on the game’s first five shots. Lake Superior State’s Diego Cuglietta got the scoring when he took advantage of a sloppy line change by the Minnesota State defense to break in on goalie Dryden McKay and bury a shot in the upper corner of the net. It was the 25th goal of the ...

Several characters in “Home Improvement,” the title of this week’s funnier-than-normal episode of The Magicians , deal with some concept of home.

‘The Magicians’ Explores Its Supporting Characters With “The Side Effect”

The Magicians is an ensemble show, with the gang of main characters flitting across interwoven storylines in perpetual battles to save their lives and/or magic. In “The Side Effect,” one of my favorite episodes this season, the roles that characters’ play gets flipped; the spotlight moves away from the core gang (Quentin, Julia, Margo, Eliot and Alice) and shines on four side characters: Zelda the Librarian, Fillory’s own Fen, the warrior-woman Kady, and the kinda dead Penny 40. The prem...

Last night our friend Pete Dominick did a headlining set at our local comedy club on Long Island, so you know we had to be there.

‘The Magicians’ Returns to a Forgotten Character With “A Timeline and Place”

Episode 6 of The Magicians , “A Timeline and Place,” addresses the long festering question: what the hell is the original Penny (AKA the Penny from Timeline 40) doing ? Last time we saw him was in Season 3, where—stuck in the Afterlife branch of the Library—he had a chat with Hades that convinced him to take on the role of a Librarian in the eternal (and infernal?) institution. Thankfully, actor Arjun Gupta has remained on the show playing the Penny from Timeline 23—a more subdued, melan...

‘The Magicians’ Taps the Brakes With “Marry F–ck Kill” and “Escape From the Happy Place”

The fourth and fifth episodes of The Magicians are slower paced than the beginning of the season, allowing viewers to marinate in some under-explored relationships and to circle back to some dangling storylines. The results are mixed, but the show’s quick dialogue and unexpectedly poignant character moments make both episodes—especially Episode 5—rich fodder that fans will enjoy. “Marry Fuck Kill” The Magicians’ fourth episode, “Marry Fuck Kill,” is a detour from the main conflict...
