"Well, we are magicians, why don't we just go and rob a bank?" Yes, it's a bank heist episode! With magic! And dancing!

There was so much that was good in this episode. Sure, not perfect, but Margo going full-on mastermind was great, and the jab at Mission: Impossible was fun. And, and, and ... I'll stop here.

Not perfect, indeed. When I saw Penny floating I kept yelling at the tv (to my wife's chagrin) "JUST GO SIT ON THE PILE OF GOLD!"

I mean that ain't the floor, am I right?

Stupid plot device. I would rather they dismissed it totally and just went with: Penny teleports in but OH SHAP there's a ward on the floor that traps him and everyone must rush to save him. Simpler and less stupid and yelling-making.

Niffin Alice is best Alice.

Agreed komara. I was doing the same thing. I also figured maybe then he could just teleport out the whole pallet load.

Wow, this series is all over the place.

Last week got super dark, and now it's the fucking Italian Job.

I have got to stop watching this so late at night, there's a point where it all seems so logical and real, and then I drop off to sleep and can't reconstruct enough to make a coherent argument, yeah no surprise there.

Finally watched this episode - The Magicians has made my list of "do not watch while eating/do not watch last thing before bed" so I kept putting it off until I was in the mood for possible surprise grotesquery, but this was delightful. Nothing like a good heist plot. And the eugenics book joke was a pretty great throwaway.

Quentin keeping Niffen-Alice a secret from everyone is annoying, I get enough of that on The Flash, but I suppose it's not out of character for him.

Totally did not understand why he didn't divulge Niffin Alice to the group.

I look forward to their exploration of Fillory's immanent currency devaluation.
