Now, this makes up for so much. It might even be a series saver, for me.
Maybe it’s because I just watched a bunch of stupid MAURY videos on YouTube with some friends just recently, but MAGI couldn’t have morphed into a tawdry talk show at a better moment. After an interminably-long, super-serious arc about the nature of power and betrayal, there’s something so thrillingly cathartic about an entire episode being devoted essentially to Sinbad's trial as a manwhore.
I’m sure there a plenty of uptight fans who found this episode offensive - - a crass serving of filler that's interrupted their heroic adventure. Those fans need to lighten the hell up.
I don’t know if there’s anything more to say about this? The entertainment value is so simple that any amount of analysis feels like its dampening the fun. It’s like your health teacher making you explain why you "find video games enjoyable" It’s just kind-of taking something and turning it… lame.
Seriously, do I really need to explain to anybody why 22 minutes of a bunch of fantasy heroes pointing their fingers at one of their own over accusations of skankiness is absolutely hilarious? Do I?
No. I’m just leaving it there. See it for yourself.
