Penn Jillette and Teller go to China, Egypt and India to see local magicians perform. It's a 3 part mini-series. It's an interesting travelogue that is different and fascinating. In China, the magic show with no audience is absolutely surreal. The rural magic family is endearing. In Cairo, it has good chaotic streets. The glass eater is fun and then he starts eating the brick. In this one, Teller is talking and his explanation of the cup and ball trick is really touching. Actually some of it is quite sadly poignant. In India, the guys go in search for the Indian rope trick. How they resolve the search is an interesting take on the trick. The show isn't about the tricks as much as it's about the culture of magic.
