I think you guys are missing the point of the show. They are explaining how science can be used in magic. I rather enjoyed it and honestly would have been disappointed if they hadn't shown how they work.

I agree, I quite enjoyed it too. Would have been nice to have seen some actual magic effects though, that wouldn't have been explained. That way, it could have potentially gotten some more people inspired to take up magic.

All in all though, it was an interesting watch.

Cheers,

Lloyd

OK, after reading these posts I'll admit that I was a bit misguided in my criticism.

Let me say right out that I LIKE Wayne and have several of his effects. But this show was not what I expected, and it is NOT for me.

I will say, though, as one who likes to use PK effects, I still think that the "Smart Oil" thing did expose the use of m*****s to the general public. I would have liked it if they did NOT do that!

I caught the ending of one of the shows. The bungee jump one...
I thought it was interesting.
I knew the phonebook thing, but still.. jumping and putting your life on it... that has to be at least a little freaky.

As for exposing magnets... please...

Any time any lay person ever sees a magic trick their first answer is always magnets.
"That card is floating".. "Magnets!"
That's like the number one answer from laymen. That and mirrors.
I don't think it's anything to worry about, nor do I think hiding the word magnet is necessary either.
Let them think magnets for everything. They be wrong!!

Lay people learn about magnets in science class. Randi is right, let them think what they want.

I would be interested to hear what the reviews are like from non magicians, as we obviously will be biased. It works both ways though, I am a big fan of Derren Brown, he is well received, but because I have the understanding of what he is doing I have a greater appreciation.

Watched it and would give it 7/10. Not as good as THEM which was really good.


THEM was godawful, in my opinion. There's a reason it didn't last.

It was better than this. Not many shows do last of magic on tv.

Not a warning. I think they're fun shows! They just may not be what you're expecting - that's all.


I though it was fun... Good work guys! Smile

Watched this show for the first and last time.
In my opinion, it is an exposure show no matter how you might dress it up.
THEM was pretty bad..This is worse.

Sadly, Wayne apparently had an unfortunate serious performing incident ala "Burn Notice."
