The Road Trick Mini-Review

Posted by Michael on May 25th, 2017

Michael Lauck is a columnist for iTricks. All opinions expressed in this review are his own and not necessarily those of iTricks.

Red Bull has released another clip of The Road Trick, which is available to watch or binge watch on Red Bull’s website and on demand channels. Having watched about half of the series so far, I can say that it is completely worth watching for any magic fan. Half travel show and half magic special, magician Adam Trent journeys through Europe trying to see if magic can transcend cultural differences. Directing the TV crew following Adam is Dirty Jobs veteran Dave Barsky and I personally found that The Road Trick has a kind of charm reminiscent of Dirty Jobs. It is great “rainy day” television; perfect for watching while you lay on the couch all afternoon.
