Channel Surfing: TV Picks for the Week of 03/30/2020

Saying good bye to The Magicians and Harley Quinn and DuckTales for that animation fix.

Fans bid farewell as The Magicians comes to a dramatic conclusion this week. Those who like animated shows have their choice between two entertaining options. More mature audiences may lean towards Harley Quinn while the young and young at heart can watch DuckTales.

The Magical Quest Concludes

The Magicians’ run on SyFy will end this week. The show, loosely based off of the fantasy novels by Lev Grossman, spent the past five seasons on the cable television network and has garnered a significant following in that time. There was even a comic mini-series from Boom! Studios that took place within the same universe.

Described as an adult Harry Potter, The Magicians have had its characters working together to prevent a magical apocalypse that threatens the world this season. See how it all ends when the series finale airs this Wednesday night.

Mischief Making with Harley

The popular DC Universe animated show, Harley Quinn, returns for its sophomore season this Friday. We find the dazingly chaotic antiheroine ready to be the world’s most feared supervillain but can she deal with the competition?

Hilarious adventures ensue over thirteen episodes featuring Harley and her crew. Iconic Gotham characters, Catwoman and Mr. Freeze, are introduced this season and are voiced by Sanaa Lathan and Andrew Molina respectively.

Expanding the Duckverse

The second season of DuckTales saw the expansion of the Duckverse to include other programs from the Disney Afternoon animated block of the 90’s. We saw new versions of TaleSpin’s Don Karnage and Darkwing Duck introduced. Then last summer at SDCC, the creatives behind the show shared even more classic characters to expect in the third season.

The Rescue Rangers, a Goof Troop version of Goofy, Gosalyn Duck and Taurus Bulba from Darkwing Duck, adult versions of Kit Cloudkicker and Molly Cunningham from TaleSpin and Rhinokey and Butterbear from The Wuzzles are all set to appear. Season three of DuckTales premieres Saturday morning on DisneyXD.
