Roswell, New Mexico is a busy, complicated little town, and it has some serious problems with aliens. Among all the conflicted, tumultuous storylines though, between aliens and humans, one of the most intense relationships is between Alex Manes, played by Tyler Blackburn, and Michael Guerin (Michael Vlamis).
The Magicians have lost their mojo. At the end of the supernatural drama’s second season, magic seemed to simply disappear. Poof! That left numerous characters in quite the predicament, most notably Margo (Summer Bishil) and Eliot (Hale Appleman). The two current rulers of Fillory were about to contend with an army of inhospitable fairy invaders–and, now, they are powerless. However, in season three, audiences know that whether she’s capable of casting spells or not, never underestimate Margo. Ever.
’12 Monkeys’ interview: Monkey business with Amanda Schull, Aaron Stanford, Emily Hampshire & Terry Matalas
The fate of the timeline and the world hang in the balance in 12 Monkeys. The show began in 2043 with scavenger Cole (Aaron Stanford) splintering back to the year 2015 in order to prevent the Army of the 12 Monkeys from unleashing a virus that would wipe out mankind. Along the way, virologist Cassie Railly (Amanda Schull) and enigmatic math genius Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire) joined the cause and have proven integral in thwarting their enemies.
The second season of The Magicians focuses heavily on the world of Fillory, and how our heroes are adapting to running a kingdom while battling evil gods and monsters. The series has seen twists and turns that may even surprise fans of the books, and that’s because showrunner Sera Gamble and co-creator John McNamara have worked hard to adapt Lev Grossman’s novels in a way that expands the world, the relationships, and the characters.
Some things are essential, and for me and my family, travel is one of those necessities that makes our hearts warm, and our minds happy. Even my daughter, who is only 3-years-old has said how much she likes flying and staying at hotels.
The Emerson Hotel has a spacious lobby, some charming rooms, and if you know the right route to take, a time machine connected through a few back hallways. Sound intriguing? Well, it is, but it’s not a funky themed hotel in Toronto, it just happens to be the impressive set of 12 Monkeys, and late last year I took a little staycation there for the afternoon, with a quick visit to the all-important Suite 607.
