Delightful, mind boggling, and just pure, good fun
15 December 2019 | by ArielleNTBSee all my reviews

I absolutely adore this show! Justin Willman is a fantastic personality and highly engaging. His tricks are fantastic-- he takes common magic tricks and amps them up in unexpected ways. The show is funny and quirky and right on the edge of being a little too hammy but it has yet to cross the line. The segments are great: he has one recurring bit called "Magic for Susans" where (shocker) he does street magic for a stranger named Susan; a second bit is "Trick Questions" where he performs street magic for a passerby and then afterwards asks them an absurd, unrelated question. It never fails to make me laugh.

The major tricks themselves are also shocking and baffling, I'm always wondering how he accomplished what he did. The show got a lot of flack for being "staged"-- I'm not sure why, perhaps people don't understand what magicians do? It's not "real magic" like Harry Potter but it is real. I think the second season takes more steps to make that clear by using longer, seamless shots (and also there is an episode where he just flat out says, it's not staged).

The second season themes dipped a bit, but I still loved it. It's a great show for all ages and the perfect length for someone that just wants a quick laugh. If you like watching magic, you'll love this show.
