Did we miss something on diversity?

Community Reviews

age 8+
The show really captivates my 6 year old boy who has a budding interest in magic performances. The tricks are explained very thoroughly in a way that makes it clear to him. The narrator makes a lot of thinly-veiled compliments about the attractive female assistants, often in an unironically creepy tone. The assistants are also dressed and often treated as stereotypical Vegas eye-candy. Fortunately, I think these things are lost on my young one but I make it up to him showing him lots of shows with positive female protagonists and role-models who aren't sexualized. Take this into consideration before showing your child. There is also some danger with "don't try this at home" type stunts, involving blades, swords, explosives and heights. For this reason I'd recommend it is not for very young children and talking to your child to make sure they understand these things are very dangerous and are only to be done by adult professionals.

Too much sex
age 14+

Completely full of chauvinist sexual innuendo.

If degrading women and dozens of sexual innuendos about scantily clad assistants is something you feel your kids should be exposed to, go for it.
