The Best Magic Show on Television
4 January 2000 | by vox-saneSee all my reviews

The "Masked Magician" shows how one famous magic trick after another is performed.

I'm not a fan of magic and never have been, and feel rather ho-hum about the whole thing. But I'm very interested in how things are done. Although I don't intend to perform any of these things (even the simple ones) it's fascinating to watch how they are done and imagine variations on them -- far more interesting and even more amazing than an actual magic show. As an illusionist or a magician performs you know you're being tricked; but to see the effort, the hard work, and often the contortionism that goes on behind the scene, you have more appreciation for what they're actually doing. The narration is the worst, but perhaps that's to keep it from being distracting.
