I don't know where all the negative reviews are coming from
27 June 2015 | by okg-11122See all my reviews

When I first saw the show its just looks like any other magic TV show. But the people who have done the negative reviews on this show should research it Before writing a review.

I found out that he finds people who need work and then He does magic tricks on them. They are people who see the trick fail, but they have to pay them money any, then there are people who got fooled by the trick but don't want to be on TV but still get paid, the last people get the biggest sums of money are the people who get tricked and say it's okay to be put on TV.

Some of his tricks are really clever which makes you wonder how he did it, others you notice at once and wonder how people fall for it. I just love seeing how the react to the trick. What people are most skeptical about are the zoom in on the victim. They usually do that so you can't see them make a switch while the person is distracted to keep it a mistake. The only reason I don't give it a 10/10 is because they sometimes but this is rare, they do tricks so obvious that it makes you wonder how people could fall for it. Give it a try you might just like it.
