Fun and family friendly

Actually was better than I expected. I am a fan of Eddie Griffin. I felt the judging was good in that Lance Burton provided great insight and history on the magic. Chris Angel I have never seen in this light and it was refreshing. The performances by Miles Brown and Corbin were great! I admit I was expecting more informal magic than grand magic but the production quality was up there with American Idol or actually, it was better!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The fun series features lots of magic tricks and illusions designed to impress being performed by enthusiastic amateurs. Celebs like Corbin Bleu, Frankie Muniz, Omarion, Brec Bassinger, and Miles Brown do their best to learn the trick and how to present it in a way that gives it both stage and TV presence. While there's some mention of what the trick is called, and brief moments of training sessions, the secrets behind each illusion are never revealed. But each celebrity does their best to perform each one as it was intended. If you like magic and illusion-themed entertainment, Criss Angel's Magic With the Stars is worth checking out.
