What did people think of the "exposure" of their act? I liked the twist that they did, but I am not so sure that I like it for laypeople.
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Kind of difficult to like them..."We give away what others in the business do!"...

I really didn't see much "exposure" EXCEPT the trim thing but there are items out there that use the exact same trim principle but are so much more deceptive then what P&T used that I think a layperson might say "That cant be what P&T showed on americas got talent". I remember someone one time saying its not a problem if they "expose" but don't really expose, (or expose their own stuff) example:lift off to love.
Thanks,

One more thing is they sort of did a version of this on letterman a long time ago that I loved but no one else seemed to like. I think it was hilarious
Thanks,

I thought it was very creative and shocking, both the blood and the re-appearance of the lady at the end.

Teller is so creative and his thinking outside the box is the best in the business.

My wife loved it...and the re-appearance of the lady at the end was a nice kicker. We just kept saying to each other, where did she come from.

I have a tough time classifying what they did as exposure. Either way, I thought they were great.

I loved the entrails -- a real nod to Richiardi's version.

How did the woman get out of there in time to walk back on for the curtain call?

I think Teller is extremely creative and bold. Yes, P&T might expose a simple method of how an illusion may be done but it's not what people really remember. There is still true magic around what they do. There magic just isn't the norm. Does everyone remember the illusion backstage with the magician. Magicians have been performing it for many decades now and it's centered around revealing how a magician does an illusion. Just my 2 cents.

I think the exposure of the "BASE" concept was not good. Lot's of magicians use it still.
But they got a paycheck and I didn't ... Gotta hand it to them ...

Unless of course you saw Tony Spina's divided woman or Gene de Voe's (?), then you would say it was exposure, but with P & T kicker ending.

I have never ben a fan of Penn and Teller. People talk about the harm the masked magician does but no one mentions Penn and Teller. As far as I am concerned they are one and the same.

-In a different contest and whit a different performer,
-before than the base exposure( like someboby say),
who really think the people can't really undestand the poor secretaround it , if it was really performed like this ( old style sawing) and whit exactly that (giant base )prop?
-really you think the people don't uderstand if it was really performed?
