You can see several of the segments here:

I thought the Gingerbread Man thing was cute and puzzling.
Silk to Egg is still a killer trick though most magicians will scoff at the method used here.
I sure hope the Invisible Deck isn't in the stage show.
The Teleporting Coins was fun for the audience.

The weakest effect for me was the Coffee Cup thing. Regis, the pro, asks the magician twice "What are you feeling?" and the guy doesn't pick up the opportunity! He could have played with that and really built it up.

So Jerskin, I agree pretty dull for magicians, but I don't think magicians are the target audience for this show. It's sort of like seeing a cover band. They find an audience and sometimes make money.

BTW I think the business model here is to replicate the thing and send out various teams of Illusionists. If I'm right about that, then you basically don't want anything too unique or even great. You just want middle of the road stuff that can be easily duplicated by middle of the road personnel.
