I agree with the reviewers who say that the magic industry may have actually been HELPED by this program series... many of the people who were previously unhappy with magic because they couldn't figure out how the tricks were done (and so they didn't want to go and see magicians perform because it would just have been puzzling and upsetting to them; I know because I myself am one of those folks) may now like magic better after having seen this program about how some of the tricks are done, and so they may now feel inclined to go and see magic shows. You see, folks, entertainment is a "whole-world" business, and as such, it must create various types of material so as to cater to every facet of the population. As I say, there are many people --- yours truly included --- who DO want to know how magic tricks are performed... we actually DISLIKE not knowing how a trick is done, and so we may not bother watching magicians because of the frustration and resentment we feel at not being allowed to see the secrets behind the illusions. So this program's magician is merely bowing to that comparatively small but sizeable and enthusiastic segment of the audience who so desperately DOES desire to know what the secrets are. You can't please all the people all the time, and I say, let those of us who do like to see how magic tricks are performed have our little shows that give us what we want --- nobody said you had to watch them, too! It's just like anyone who produces documentary movies about anti-Christians, devil-worshippers, cannibalism, etc. --- certain people are interested in these things, and so they are grateful for any media that covers what they like. The rest of us should not criticize the producers of these "alternative" movies, because, again, the rest of us don't have to watch them if we don't want to. Let's not criticize media coverage of a certain subject just because we don't happen to agree with it... this is a free world, remember? "Live and let live", you know?
