TV Thursdays in Teen Central

Quentin Coldwater, a grad student at Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, has been fascinated by the magical fantasy world since he was young. But as he has gotten older, Quentin and his 20-something friends have discovered that the magical world they read about as children is not only real, but poses dangers to humanity. While studying at the secret upstate New York school, the friends struggle to cope with the aftermath of a catastrophe that befalls the institution. The fantasy series is based on a series of novels by Lev Grossman.

Episode 1: Quentin and Julia are invited to a test of their magical skills. Quentin passes and is accepted to Brakebills University. Julia fails the test and they attempt to wipe her memory about Brakebills and the test, but she manages to leave herself a clue to remember. Refusing to accept that she cannot learn magic, she is later contacted by Pete, who offers to teach her.

Episode 2: Professor Pearl investigates the Beast incident at Brakebills and Quentin, Alice, Penny, and Kady face disciplinary action for their involvement in the Beast's attack.
