Syfy now set to show The Magicians pilot online or On Demand
You can now watch the Syfy’s The Magicians pilot on their website at syfy.com or On Demand. Syfy announced this bold move the day it was available, which was Friday, January 8th. You can also watch it on satellite and telco TV services.
What about other platforms such as social media sites like Facebook and YouTube? No worries there either, as you’ll be able to watch the pilot on the two mentioned along with Perk TV and Roku starting Monday, January 11th. I myself have to wait untll then as SyFy won’t allow me to watch it on their site through my Nook HD Color (yeah, I still use it), so I’ll have to wait a few days to catch it on YouTube while multi-tasking (such as posting other news here).
Other news is that they released a list of recurring roles and the actors playing them for season 1:
-Michael Cassidy as James, the well-educated, privileged and confident, long-time best friend to Quentin Coldwater and also Julia’s boyfriend.
-Spencer Garrett as Ted Coldwater, Quentin’s mild-mannered – to the point of seeming indifference – father who surfaces at a stressful time in his son’s life.
-David Call as Pete, a mild-looking, buttoned-down guy who is equally comfortable being relaxed and laid back as he is being dangerous.
-Kacey Rohl as Marina, a bookish young woman who gives off the impression of being both depressed and underemployed to cover up a very different persona.
-Tembi Locke as Doctor London, a psychiatrist on a psychiatric ward in a New York City hospital who is charged with Quentin’s care.
-Hiro Kanagawa as Professor March, one of the Brakebills professors tasked with instructing students in magic and watching over their safety.
The Magicians pilot, along with episode 2, will premiere on the Syfy channel on Monday, January 25th at 9pm ET/PT.
