A college for Magic in upstate New York, not like Harry Potter. This is good (not implying HP was bad )! Easy to get hooked, if the presmise, story, and characters appeal to you. The Beast in the first episode was amazingly threatening and well done for standard TV. I find myself in anticipation of the next episode. The last was Quentn figuring out why he was confined to a mental hospital. The book this is based on, is on my to-read list.
