I'm enjoying watching The Magicians. I liked the books (although I only read them once and don't remember them too well), unlike a lot of people in HP fandom, I think? but it works even a bit better as a tv show.

Eliot mentions having taken the house puppy to "a very confused veterinarian in Ogdensburg", so you know the screenwriters, as usual, are from the city and think "upstate New York" means some point where literally everything from Buffalo to Plattsburgh is within a short drive Brakebills is obviously in Canton like St. Lawrence, or maybe in Heuvelton with the Amish.

I'm another Harry Potter fan who enjoyed the books, but I have noticed Potter fans claiming that they're a ripoff. Those people could be a vocal minority though.

The other thing I've seen is people saying that they're a mean-spirited Take That because the magic is more dangerous and everything's more gritty. I can see where they're coming from, but it always seemed more like enthusiasm to me. "I like these books, now what if I used the basic concept for something in my own style?"
