Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the series Magic for Humans features lots of fun magic tricks offered with a lighthearted sense of humor. There are a few references to crack made in jest, and on one occasion a little boy cries after a trick, but the event is handled kindly. There is some mild sexual innuendo in a few episodes, most of which will go over younger kids' heads. On occasion products like iPhone and Pepsi are briefly mentioned or shown. Despite some bleeped cursing thanks to people's reactions, the overall content is teen-friendly.
Is It Any Good?
This fun series combines magic tricks, elaborate experiments, and good-natured wit as Justin Willman shows off his illusionist skills. Adding to the entertainment are people's reactions, which range from an adult stunned into silence when Willman pulls his wife out of a bag to young girls telling him that one of his tricks should be more gender inclusive -- all of which the illusionist takes in stride and with a sense of humor.
The tricks are impressive, and it's easy to find yourself accusing Willman of using the magic of television to make them happen, despite his assertions to the contrary. But Magic for Humans is as much about the easygoing, charming way Willman interacts with his audiences. Even if you're not a magic buff, it's an entertaining series that offers some lighthearted teen and adult fun.
