The Magicians

This TV series can be described simply as Harry Potter but with 20-something magic students, and with sex. Including gay sex. The gaystream media, in its mission to normalize homosexuality, sticks gay sex everywhere these days. And they wait until midway through the season, because they know if they put the gay sex into the first episode, straight men would be grossed out and not watch the rest of the series.

It’s not highbrow fantasy TV like Game of Thrones but it was an enjoyable guilty pleasure. Season 1 is available on Netflix, and Season2 is coming out on the SyFy channel in a month.

  2. Watching Hannibal 1st season now, on Amazon. Very good! Also recommend Luther, River, Longmire on Netflix. Many others. TV is awesome these days.

    • I watched a few episodes of Longmire, didn’t like it.

      • Hannibal? So far it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen. The acting and cinematography are outstanding.

  3. ***SPOILER ALERT***SPOILER ALERT ***SPOILER ALERT***

    Maybe — haven’t seen the series yet but it’s on my Netflix queue. IIRC in the book the villain is that way because he was molested as a child by a gay pedo (the author of the Narnia type books the lead character likes.) Did they keep that in the tv show?

    • Yes, they do.

    • Spoilers indeed

      Yeah for all of the common normalization of gayness on TV, and that includes this show, they do have the villain a villain BECAUSE he was gay-molested. That’s something that isn’t part of the usual normalization of gayness on TV. On a network show, the molester would be a straight right wing military type, not a gay guy.

  4. Homosexuality was normalized a long time ago. Right-wing heroes like Roy Cohn, J. Edgar Hoover, and Whittaker Chambers were all gay (albeit just barely closeted). Nobody was surprised to see Cohn die from AIDS.

    • The idea that it is normal or not somehow dangerous or undesirable has been legitimized by the usual processes, in that there will be punishment for those who fail to give it and its adherents sufficient respect, but I think many still have a gut level negative reaction to it that may very well be an evolved defense mechanism and many men perceive gay men as somehow less reliable than other men and these men will likely act on their instincts and keep the gays at a distance where social convention and law permits.

  6. Straight women would also be grossed out by the gay sex scenes. At least I would. I don’t mind if there are gay characters in a show, but I definitely don’t want to watch them making out.

    • What about two chicks making out? Straight guys don’t mind that.

      • Actually, I don’t really care to see lesbians. It doesn’t creep me out the way a couple of homos would. I just find it boring and annoying.

      • I agree with destructure. I think the majority of men feel that way. Not sure where the “lesbian sex is hot” stereotype came from.

  7. Lion,

    Here is a long-winded comment that I just left over at Steve Sailer’s blog.Thought you would be interested because it offered a real world refutation of globalization and mass immigration.

    Steve,
    OT but thought I would share my experience visiting some relatives in the Cleveland Metro Area over Christmas. It seems like the Midwest, including the Cleveland area, offers a controlled study in immigration restriction.

    One thing that really stands out is the absence of large numbers of non-black minorities. I stayed and dined in Upper Middle Class Cleveland suburbs and can’t recall seeing more than five Hispanics. In fact, the only non-back minorities I saw were middle class Asians and Indians.

    Contrary to the Wall Street Journal, all of the jobs that Americans won’t do are actually done by (gasp!)…. Americans! Construction work, short order cooks, landscaping, janitorial work, etc. was entirely done by white and black Americans. My family and I went to Hudson, Ohio for an afternoon, which is a very affluent suburb between Cleveland and Akron. Driving around, all of the construction workers were American. We then went into an upscale supermarket. Out of the roughly 30 workers that I saw, one was an Asian immigrant. All of the other workers were American (entirely white).

    We then went into Downtown Cleveland. When we walked past an upscale condo conversion, I noticed that all of the construction workers and painters were either white or black Americans.

    In short, my experience was that it was possible to attain a high standard of living at an affordable price without importing large numbers of immigrants. It then begs the question, what was the point of all of this? It costs an astonishing amount of money in real estate and taxes to maintain Blue Coastal America. Where is all of this money going? Finally, do any of the commenters here have the same experiences in other Midwestern Cities (Columbus, Indy, St. Louis, etc.)?

    • Bankrupting middle America and consolidating that wealth amongst the coastal elites, of course.

    • This isn’t uncommon in the Midwest outside of Chicago, and even the Chicago suburbs are (culturally at least) noticeably more white that suburbs in most of the big sunbelt metro areas like Dallas, Houston, or Los Angeles. If you look at a census tract map of the US, you’ll notice that the vast majority of the land area in a triangle that goes from New England to Montana and down to northern Alabama is still very high-percentage white. This is something a lot of my friends from California or Texas can’t wrap their heads around: you can go days without hearing Spanish or any other foreign language spoken, and the only NAMs you’ll see are the ones you described: relatively assimilated Asians and Hispanics who would look “whitewashed” outside of California or Texas.

  8. Aren’t magicians kind of gay anyway?

    • These are more like D&D wizards, I think. (They even adapt D&D spells, by name, in the book!)

  10. In the same vein, I started watching Mr Robot and got through the first three episodes of season 1. Actually, episode 3 turned out to feature a married nordic man picking up some kebab, making out and then a drawn-out homo ass fucking scene. There were no hetero fuck scenes at all prior to that. (The wife was some degenerate POS as well. The only married couple that showed up, wow does that mean all marriages are like gay marriages?)

    I had gotten drawn in but after that, I just lost interest. The overall concept of crashing the world through computers was interesting and it seemed very well executed, not just actors in front of a computer rattling keys at random … I just don’t feel enthusiastic about the series anymore. So much for that.

    • I watched the first season of Mr Robot, and although I enjoyed it, I didn’t enjoy it enough to continue with season 2. But the entire show, all the characters and the entire premise, is far left fantasy. So of course the only marrieds were going to be the bad guys.

  11. I loved the books but felt the adaptation was only so-so so only got a couple of episodes in. IIRC there was only one ‘on-screen’ incident of gay sex in the books and it was intentionally weird. The author is definitely SJW-ish though, although not as rabid as some.
