In fact, high imagination the magician Significantly different from HBO’s imagination game of Thrones. The latter is more concerned with the increasingly bloody game of musical chairs and the complex character struggles of the sprawling cast of characters than the show’s larger fictional elements, which include dragons, shadow monsters, and White Walkers. But if you like the fantasy genre and are looking to sink your teeth into a whole new realm – and if you somehow manage to avoid game of Thrones So far – this is the best possible place to start.

modern narrative, the magician And the Tudors They don’t have much in common. The former is about a paid monster hunter whose main antagonist is the plot, while the latter is a historical drama that follows the reign of King Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys-Myers). Where the two shows overlap is Henry Cavill, who played Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk and King Henry’s BFF. Cavill was exceptionally cool even back then, so if watching Cavill while he looks really catchy, it’ll top your list of reasons to watch the magician (No judgment at all!), You can’t go wrong with spending time with the Tudors.

It might not be so obvious, but Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) are actually very similar to Geralt in that they are both exceptionally skilled monster hunters. Also like Geralt, they don’t have much choice in their dangerous career path after their mother was killed by a demon and their father (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) devoted his life to hunting down the demon, saving people and hunting other monsters along the way. However, it’s not just the “kill monsters” aspect of the narrative that unites the two shows. Both are surprisingly funny supernatural Much clearer about it – as we weave unforgettable stand-alone stories with episodes that reveal a very complex overarching legend. If you love the missions that Geralt initiates throughout the show, you’ll love watching Sam and Dean roam America doing the same.

Fantasy and science fiction are similar in that they offer viewers an opportunity to escape this boring reality for something new. But The Mandalorian – It is a western action event space located in the Star Wars universe – it has a lot in common with it the magician From just a new world ready to be explored. Both shows follow lone hunters (Caveles Geralt vs The Mandalorian Pedro Pascal) who take on dangerous jobs for money and eventually find their lives changed forever by mysterious and powerful children (Princess Ciri vs. Baby Yoda). When you add strange creatures, unforgettable supporting characters, and interesting politics, it’s as if the two shows were created from the same plot.

If your favorite part of the magician He is the poet Jasker (Joy Patty) and his catchy, short-lived musical comedy from ABC. Galavant It should be your next stop. The absurd but underrated fantasy series, which only ran for two seasons, follows a brilliant knight (Joshua Sass) on his luck as he seeks revenge on an evil king (Timothy Omondson, with a really excellent beard) who ruined his life and got on the path to his eternal happiness. Featuring original music and lyrics by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater that will stick in your head just like “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher,” the show flips the script on fantasy, flipping metaphor left and right even while firmly within the genre.

There are two camps when it comes to canceling Netflix right now Cowboy BebopEither you love him or you hate him with the fire of a thousand suns. We fall into the previous set because the show – a live-action adaptation of a life-changing anime – is Hazar. Space western with shades of noir and stellar jazz stars John Cho as Spike Spiegel, a bounty hunter with a dark and complex past as a member of a dangerous criminal syndicate. That should be enough to entice fans the magician, who will also be drawn to the flowery violence that permeates the show and every job that Spike and his partner Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) do. But you’ll also get off the show’s unique sense of humor. So while we respect the camp that prefers anime, we can’t help but love this version as well. We’re surprised there won’t be a second season, but the only one out there is still worth watching the witcher fans.

When it comes to fantasy TV, nothing is quite the same the magician (At least not yet). But wheel of time Based on the bestselling Robert Jordan series of novels, it provides another opportunity to escape into a world very different from our own, where time is cyclical and where magic exists. The series stars Rosamund Pike as Moiraine, a powerful character Aes Sedai (a woman who can direct the One Force), as she tries to find the Dragon Reborn, the latest incarnation of a single person in existence who has the ability to fight the Dark One and either save or destroy humanity in this the operation. You soon find several contenders in the same village, so the story is an insidious development in the story of the Chosen One. And while it can be said that it is more than that Lord of the rings From the magicianThere are many elements of this genre that fans of fantasy will enjoy.

Andy Whitfield, Spartacus: Blood and Sand

Andy Whitfield Spartacus: blood and sand


If your favorite thing about the magician It is blood and violence, you may be interested in the historical drama of Stars Spartacus. You won’t find many monsters (at least not the inhuman kind), but the show is well worth your time. Inspired by the historical figure of the same name, Spartacus It tells the story of a man (played by Andy Whitfield in season one and William McIntyre in season two and three) who is uprooted from his homeland and the woman he loves and forced to fight in the ring as a fearsome wrestler. There is no shortage of brutality or blood here. No matter how much you think, assume there will always be more.
