Shameless entertainment
11 June 2002 | by (Sunderland, MA) – See all my reviews

Yeah, it's cool to see how tricks are done, but there is an unwritten magicians' code that you NEVER reveal how to do your tricks. Apparently at least one disgruntled magician contributed to this spectacle.

And Nash Entertainment, who brought us previous intellectual properties such as "When Good Pets Go Bad" shows no shame in revealing some of the greatest tricks ever conceived.

By the way, I have a hunch that the masked magician is a woman. A good trick to protect this turn-coat's identity. (But then again, it's not even necessarily true that the masked magician is even a magician--could be only an actor going through the paces.)
