Death by Magic Review Conclusion

I would watch it again – Watching the first episode and I yelled ‘ass-hole’ at him and I knew it was going to be an amazing series! Some tricks you see how it’s done and others you’re left in the dark. I may have to try that candle trick later. The reactions from those involved are intense, the preparation is necessary, and the results are extraordinary. 

5 Stars

Don’t take your eyes from the screen, there’s always something happening. You’re going to need something you don’t need to think about as you eat it.
