Illusionists Penn & Teller throw down the gauntlet to aspiring magicians to perform their most mystifying trick - and fool Penn and Teller. Penn & Teller have no prior knowledge of either the performers or the planned trick. They sit in the audience just like everyone else, watching every move the guest magicians make. If any illusionist fools the professionals, they win a five star trip to Las Vegas to perform as the opening act in Penn & Teller's world famous show at the Rio Hotel & Casino.

Great show but I do have one huge gripe. In a show where the goal is to figure out how the tricks are done why do they insist on switching camera angels every 3 seconds. It is impossible to watch for slight of hand if you can't see their hands.

Love this Penn & Teller show. Binge watched all 5 seasons after running across a YouTube video that claimed that magicians were using Demon magic & sold their souls to the "devil" to get supernatural powers. Only problem I have with the show is Penn going into super simp mode any time a female performer gets within a 100 yards of the stage.

I love Penn & Teller but don't like this show. it's filler for the ITV reality talent show spot. other P&T shows don't get a proper time slot in the UK they are only watchable if they are downloaded from the net. it's a shame.

This has been great so far. Glad they have a new show after the success of "Bullshit!"

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
