As said before, I use a 1-10, with 10 being PERFECT rating scale. I judge on The Tricks, (Impact), Technique, Teaching Style & Understanding, and Video Quality, such as Camera Angles...ECT.

1) Ultimate Three Card Monte - This is a GREAT EFFECT. It's a Marketed Michael Skinner Trick. If you don't have it, then you don't got Really this is great. It's a Three Card Monte Effect where the spectator sees the cards to the last second. Bill's Routine is very funny too. I rate it a (9).

2) Sam The Bellhop - This is a very funny and entertaining card trick. It was seen on The World's Greatest Magic Series. It has lots of laughs. Bill has a seperate video out for this one effect alone. Personally I'm not into story tricks such as Night At The Improv (ETMCM 1)...ECT. That's just ME though. He makes this funny though. You have to have your false shuffles and false cuts DOWN PAT however. I rate it a (8).

3) I Don't Even Have A Pocket - This is really well thought out Ambitious Card Routine. I've seen better though. Again he adds all the laughs. At the end he pulls the UNSIGNED Card from a pocket he didn't have. I rate is a (7.5).

4) I Should Have Done It Myself - A person pulls a card, Bill then mixes them up good, and scrambles them face-down on the table. He put his palm facing up. He has the spectator put a random card face-down on his palm. Lo, and behold, it's the WRONG CARD. Bill turns his palm, palm down, and their is the face up card stuck to the back of his palm. I really like (and do) this one. It's very funny, and BETTER than Card On Forehead as you won't get caught. This is a Fred Kaps Idea. I rate it a (8).

5) Cheating In Las Vegas With The Aces - This is a basic, finding the aces from a shuffled deck. Again, I've seen better, but I really like this one as it is pretty funny. I rate it a (7.5).

6) Back The Way They Were (Dr. Daley's Last Trick) - I love his presentation a lot. The method however I like the original the best. The G**** is somewhat common the laymen. WHY he chooses this way I have no idea. This trick is powerful. I do it a lot myself. I rate this a (7.5).

7) Test Of Strength - This is Slydini's Silk Routine. I love it. Again lots of funny business. How he gets into it is funny. I recommend you KNOW how the person will react though to it. The routine has a few phases. The spectators tie strong knots upon knots, yet you can undo them without them seeing. I rate it a (7.5).

I got to tell you to watch Bill Malone perform is truly a FUN TIME. I love this series. I have quite a few Videos / DVD'S, and this series is like mt Top 5. Heck, along with Darwin Ortiz, Michael Ammar...ECT, I'd say Bill Malone is one of my Top 5 favorite performers. I rate this Tape a (7.5) overall. I like the other three a little better with volume THREE being my favorite.
