Is It Any Good?

The show doesn't reveal any of the magicians' magical secrets to TV audiences, but it does offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what goes into performing top-notch tricks and awesome illusions. It also introduces TV audiences to some of the best magical entertainers in the business. And although the featured celebrities are competing for cash, they seem more inspired by the opportunity to learn the craft and be able to amaze live audiences with their magical skills.

Older tweens and teens with an interest in magic will likely find this series entertaining. But while it's relatively mild, there's some sexual innuendo (most of which should go over the head of young viewers), a few stunts that draw fake blood, and occasional strong language (words like "damn" are audible, while curse words are fully bleeped). There's also some competitive behavior -- particularly from celebs like singer/reality show regular Carnie Wilson and Celebrity Fit Club host Ant -- but it's more annoying than aggressive. Overall, Celebracadabra is a fun look at how much talent and skill it takes to let people witness the unbelievable.
