    Final season of ‘The Magicians’ tops new DVD, Blu-ray offerings

    The top new DVD and Blu-ray release this week is “magical.”

    “The Magicians: Season Five” Grade 3 stars: Fans of the show will want to pick up this season as it will be the last. The Syfy cable channel opted not to order a sixth season.

    If you aren’t familiar with the production, the series is adapted from Lev Grossman’s fantasy trilogy that follows Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph), a grad student selected to attend Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy. The easiest way to describe this cable series is as “Harry Potter: The College Years.”

    The 13-episode finale continues to blend the emotional challenges for the young magicians as they deal with the loss of a close friend with a very strong fantasy element.
