Horrible
18 October 2011 | by zzyzx000-124-271558See all my reviews

I'm a fan of Penn and Teller the magicians. I think the Bullshit series should be taught in schools.

Their recent British FOOL ME series was good because of all the talented magicians.

However, there is no magic in this series. The fake scene is pretty easy to spot, and the problem is, the real scenes are boring. I predict this show will be cancelled after 4 weeks.

Their isn't really much more to say, so I'm filling in the required 10 lines minimum for the review.

Have a nice day and when you go to Las Vegas you can see Penn and Teller at the Rio.
