In case you missed it, TV's A Discovery Of Witches recently concluded its three-season run on television (on both sides of the pond, as it were), and an absolutely fabulous-looking trilogy collection hit shelves this past November. (I know it's still out there even today as I've seen it in stores myself just this past weekend while doing some shopping.) I caught a few episodes of its first season when it aired originally, but then -- for whatever reason -- I tuned it out, mostly as it genuinely felt a bit more 'soap opera' in Fantasy than I usually go in for. But in 2021, the good folks at Acorn Media Group provided me with a complimentary DVD set of the show's second season (review available here), so I gave it a watch to see where it had evolved. The overall feel of the program hadn't changed all that much -- it still had the soapy elements -- but there was a greater discussion of magic -- as well as a meatier look at the various creatures (witches, demons, etc.) ... so I was glad to have given it a fresh glance.
Now, I have the opportunity to digest the sum total of its magical goodness as I have laid my hands on A Discovery Of Witches: The Complete Trilogy. Rest assured that I'll happily be spending some time with this over the next few days, taking in a solid look at its third (and final) season just to see where this miraculous journey arrives in its big finish. As I do, I'll definitely be putting up some individual episode reviews, so keep your eyes fixed on the MainPage.
But because this is such a bit of cool packaging, I wanted to share some snaps with readers. It's honestly one of the best-looking collections I've had the good fortune to consider -- with charater pictures and the like. I'm guessing that fans of this TV incarnation of the popular book series might wanna pick this up, especially if they're completists.
And with packaging that looks this good? Who could blame you?
