Hulu has released a new teaser for Shut Eye, their new drama about the world of psychics. It turns out that it is not just about a failed magician turned fraudulent psychic, it is about a failed magician turned fraudulent psychic who receives a blow to the head (as fraudulent psychics sometimes do) and starts seeing visions… I’ll admit that as someone hoping for a gritty look at the so-called “psychic Mafia” (to borrow a phrase from Mr. Keene), I am less excited about the show. What do y’all iTricksters think? You can read a bit more about the show on Entertainment Weekly.
The magic continues on America’s Got Talent as The Clairvoyants and Steven Brundage moved to the next round but unfortunately Sos and Victoria and Ryan Stock and AmberLynn’s time on the show came to an end. Ryan and AmberLynn may be off AGT but their accident got them featured on the People website and many, many TV shows! Today’s lead off video is actually from their old Discovery Channel program Guinea Pig, which was mentioned in the People article and this Mirror article comparing them to other live TV accidents.
Now that we know that Ryan is okay, we want to wish AmberLynn all the best; something tells us that Ryan is going to get over all of this before you do and we hope you aren’t beating yourself up too much.
Before we leave AGT completely behind, it is taking a break for the Olympics and will not return with new shows for about three weeks!
Ryan Stock and AmberLynn were also on Penn & Teller: Fool Us last night, not performing but assisting Rick Maisel (who did a great escape). AGT alums David and Leeman also appeared and Felix Bodden represented the Dominican Republic but it was Jibrizy who managed to fool the boys!
In other news, Penn Jillette is sharing his views on Donald Trump and the election. You can catch the short version on the CNBC website.
And finally, David Blaine is getting some press for swallowing a frog at a recent high level Google event. Visit PageSix.com for the story and their photoshopped version of events.
When it comes to Protean Acts, Sos and Victoria are masters. Despite a slight flaw (which the judges just had to point out), they managed to put out a huge amount of costume changes in just a few minutes. There biggest obstacle, though, is probably Simon Cowell who seems to have taken a disliking for Sos!
So Ryan and AmberLynn’s act hit a slight snag last night at the end (you’ll see it) and seems to have caused a bit of commotion for NBC. Their clip was posted on the America’s Got Talent NBC site and YouTube page, but out of order and after a delay. We are guessing that the accident caused no small amount of discussion before the video was posted and we are frankly shocked that NBC’s legal department did not insist on slapping a warning or disclaimer on the clip!
The important thing, though, is that Ryan is okay and later in the show host Nick Cannon announced that Ryan was, in fact, fine.
Here is the live performance of Thommy Ten and Amélie from last night’s America’s Got Talent. Voting is over, so we hope that you already voted for the various magic acts that were on last night. We will try to share all of the magic performances from last night so stay tuned!
Sorry it is a bit of a slim Video Friday… but I’m not in iTrick Tower Midwest V1.0 or 2.0. I’m not a Grand Cherokee somewhere in the 240 miles between the two! We do have a great video for you, though, Mahdi Gilbert’s winning oil and water routine from this week’s episode of Penn & Teller: Fool Us.
Check out more of Mahdi on his official website. Don’t forget to check out his picture intensive blog, too!
