    • With The Umbrella Academy coming to Netflix this February -

      A new season of The Magicians coming back to SyFy (*which apparently diverges from Lev Grossman's books!)

      And last but not least, the upcoming Starz TV series based on the wonderful book by Daniel O'Malley, THE ROOK, with a new showrunning team, set to come out this year - it's a good year for action-packed fantasy series!

      A summary: The Rook tells the story of Myfanwy Thomas, a woman who wakes
      up in London with no memory of who she is and no way to explain the circle of dead bodies around her. When she discovers she’s a high ranking official in the Checquy, Britain’s secret service for people
      with paranormal abilities, she’ll have to navigate the dangerous and complex world of the agency to uncover who wiped her memory and why she’s a target. The cast of the series includes Emma Greenwell, Joely Richardson, Olivia Munn, Adrian Lester, Ronan Raftery, Catherine
      Steadman and Jon Fletcher.

      Which one are you most excited about? Anything to add to the list?

    • The Rook sounds a lot like the Bourne films, which completely grabbed me, so I can't wait to see a trailer.

      Second choice for me would be The Magicians. I love the sci fi but the trailer didn't completely grab me. It felt a little...acted.

    • I tried watching The Magicians but I was completely bored by the whole mythical fairy tale land storyline.

      As for The Room, it sounds like a lot of books and TV shows: the aforementioned Bourne films, John Doe (one season TV show), The Blind Spot and countless urban fantasy books. I'll wait for the reviews.

    • Finally saw episode 1 of the Umbrella Academy last night - a promising start! And check out the giant umbrella to publicize the show in New York City's Bryant Park as seen over this past weekend.
