It amuses me that I've seen a number of people (on AV Club and Goodreads) talk about how annoying Quentin is, because he's the one character I empathized with most. His incessant desire to escape to some other world.

The moth monster was creepy. Very scary scene.
The Beast. Great scene when he entered the classroom. That was what hooked me.

Very intrigued with Fillory, the alt worlds possibilities. Love that the books are a central focus.
Narnia!

Instead, we have the Dean claiming Brakebills is there to unlock your potential, and not so worried if you then use it to take over the world. Yet, somehow, the Mothman is a bad guy. That’s disingenuous.
From the dean's perspective, I can see why he thinks the Beast is a bad guy. He ripped his eyes out, lol! It sounds like there's some bad blood between them.

The badly handled conflicts with Quentin and Penny
I agree. The conflict between them feels forced.

Alice needs to get some perspective and a little humility. She’s almost killed several people now.
Good point. She's experienced no emotional consequences from the damage caused by her tunnel-vision focus on finding her brother. Hopefully, the show will be smart enough to deal with that in some way.


I've read someone explaining that Books 1 and 2 run concurrently. Book 1 is Quentin and Book 2 is Julia. The show is trying to weave them together, which may explain why it feels like they're rushing through some of it.

That was fun. Crazy Alice made me laugh out loud. I even enjoyed music therapy, and those kinds of scenes usually get on my nerves.

I liked Marina's motivation, and that Quentin had to, ultimately, figure his own way out.

What will Julia do now???
