A talent show I can watch & enjoy
I don't do reality TV. I don't do all these so called talent shows. Nor do I watch celebrity this, Z factor that, nobody's got talent, or celebrity get me out of here dancing with has-beens on ice Big Brother. I'll stop myself there before I write paragraphs of rant about the turgid state of current prime time television - because I could quite easily. This, however, is *exactly* what *should* be on prime time TV. Family friendly. Amusing and entertaining. Two unquestionably talented guys at the peak of their profession, watching along with the audience and us at home, fellow practitioners of their art trying to "fool" them. There are no *freaks* put in front of us for us to laugh at (unless you count Jonathan Ross), nor are there any talentless buffoons for us to pity. This is a proper talent show. People at the top of their game - Penn & Teller - giving fellow (talented) magicians and illusionists a platform to showcase their skills. It's not judgmental. It's not confrontational. And some of the highest praise from P&T is reserved for acts that haven't fooled them, but who have such great technique and execution it seems to have genuinely moved them.
