The Magicians Garden Variety Homicide Review

The Dark King’s gotta go. That’s what the gang in Fillory decide at the beginning of “Garden Variety Homicide,” this week’s latest installment of The Magicians. One member of the gang, however, is more conflicted about the planned assassination than the others.

To make matters worse, the gang agrees that Eliot is the one best positioned to personally deliver the final blow, something he’s not sure he can do.

The Letter for the King trailer

Dutch author Tonke Dragt‘s beloved 1960s fantasy novel De brief voor de Koning, AKA The Letter for the King, has already been adapted into a movie, but now it’s heading to Netflix as a six-episode streaming series. Between this and The Witcher, Netflix is sparing no expense when it comes to feeding fantasy fans’ appetites while they wait for HBO’s Game of Thrones spin-offs.

roma documentary

Netflix is weird about promoting some things. For instance: Did you know they’ve added a making-of documentary about Roma – the same documentary that’s included with the recent Criterion Collection release of the film? It’s true! But the streaming service, as is their style, has been shy about letting people know. That’s why we’re here, folks – to inform you. You’re welcome.

As you can probably surmise from the title, Maron is going to be touching on the doom and gloom of our current era, where everything constantly feels like it’s on fire and/or underwater. That may not sound like a recipe for comedy, but Maron is a pro, so he’s got this. Watch the Marc Maron: End Times Fun trailer below.
