A media blogger recently asks “what happened to magic shows on television?” And even offers some theories as to why there are, in the blogger’s opinion, less televised magic.
“…magic undeniably has a bad reputation.” says the blogger in his story. “A lack of interesting or entertaining shows has made magic seem old-fashioned, and combined with films like ‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ (which basically spent two hours pointing out how ridiculous magic is) this cost it a spot in the regular television lineup.”
I can’t deny that magic has a bad reputation in some circles, but everyone likes good entertainment, which includes magic. And to point out a parody, the recent “Burt Wonderstone,” as an example that represents the overall perception of magic is a gross over-generalization. What about the cool magicians featured in “Now You see Me” at the opposite end of the spectrum? And the blogger seems to completely write off Criss Angel who is still going strong on television with an upcoming new series on Spike TV.
“I reckon ‘Dynamo: Magician Impossible’ is a step in the right direction,” says the blogger. “Dynamo is a magician for the YouTube generation and his show had enough pop culture nous to keep a youthful audience entertained.”
Whether or not Dynamo is the savior of TV magic or not, if he’s bringing positive attention to our entertainment art form, I’m all for it.
