Thanks, Nico. Great job, and appreciate your/Alex's efforts to provide clear, concise information/opinions.

Spot on I was comatose after watching that,
It made me realise how good Craig and David are they're both entertaining and informative I think the secret is they make it look natural and easy.

I don't know where you're from cardbiker, but where I come from, we have this saying. It goes something like this.....If you can't say something nice...don't say anything at all.
I didn't see Nico asking for opinions either. Any show that reviews magic is great to me. I learn something and that's all I care about. These magicians are not speaking in their native tongue so I'm sure If they did it in their language, it would be a bit livelier.... or sparkier for you.

Hi cardbiker. Thanks for your opinion. We do this show to inform people and not to entertain them. Of corse we also try to be entertaining. If we don't have your sense of humor or are not rude enough for you then I am glad that you still have some other shows that entertain you. And Andrew is right, we are not native english speaking and the germans asked us to do this show in german, but we decided to do it in english to reach more people. So we are happy if you tune in in our show and we are even more happy that the majority of you guys like and appreciate what we do.

Wish you all the best

Alex

I like the presenters and the structure of the show is very informative. The guys have already listened to the audience and improved the show in several ways. I think it will only get better.

How about just linking to the trailers? I have seen videos by other people that have links pop up right on the video. I'm not sure how they work but it would be great if you had the option to watch the trailer and come right back to the show or skip the trailer.

Or maybe a link would pop up that would say "skip the trailer I've seen it" and it would take your right to the spot on the video when the trailer ends. I know it's a small thing because we can just skip the trailer on our own but that requires several attempts to find the right spot each time.

They've done exactly that, but I think you need to watch the video on a PC to have the comment become visible.

Love that gif.

Guys I said it before, I really like your show.

- Short and to the point.
- I can skip the trailer if I want.
- You demo everything.
- Difficulty rating is perfect.
- I thought 20 minutes would be better but now realize 15 is the sweet spot for two effects.

Maybe consider the following?:
This show doesn't need drama or excitement. You are calm, mature and I like watching you. Like watching the news, nothing wrong with that. Don't try to be something you are not, it will bomb. So you are on the right track.
You seem honest, sincere and level headed that's a huge plus. Relax your body language, interact more. Show you are listening to each other, it will take out the stiffness that some have a problem with.
You do need to have your summaries ready to present your case, in a detailed wrap up, that has much value and content, as they are your closing remarks, don't wing it. i.e. something you haven't said during your prior discussion if at all possible.
Pick up the pace a little? Just watch your takes and re-film if it feels sluggish or the demo wasn't 100%.

Nice work! I'll keep watching. I love you guys! Sorry if I come off as a director, I come by that honestly Smile
Hope I was helpful and not a know it all. I really want you to succeed more than you have!

Many thanks Alex and Nico,

You guys are spending your own time to help the magic community, this is much appreciated by many, I am sure.
I wish I could speak another language and share like you two have.
