Wizard Wars Syfy
25 August 2014 | by jgfox39See all my reviews

The new Wizard Wars on Syfy is one of the most interesting reality shows in many years. I'm not a Magic Groupie or, as one Magician called them "Wand Waxers", but I found the format and the performances fascinating. It is produced by Penn & Teller who are the greatest Magical Showmen of our times. OK top two at least.

The Host, Ellen Fox, does a great job moving the show along. She is a self-declared Muggle, and is effectively the Ambassador between the Magicians and the audience.

A three minute video is now on Youtube with her and Penn & Teller as they manipulate three cans of mints (Old shell game). She has to find the can with the mints and not select an empty one. So easy … how can she miss it … but she never can find it, even when it's down to two cans. It is now impossible to see how she cannot point out the mint filled can … you and the audience see which one it is … absolutely clear. But …. NO! Penn then reviews the trick to her and the audience AND why our senses are deceived.

All the rest of the Magic shown is still under the Code of not revealing to the Muggles how the trick works.
