Magic For Humans | Official Trailer [HD] | Netflix
This show is super fun to watch but it’s fake for the most part the worst one is in episode 4. There were people in a “pitch black” restaurant who allegedly couldn’t see anything, they even cut away to a black screen and said this is what they see. Ok cool so far. They are somehow casting shadows on everything which is impossible without a light source.
My family and I have been watching the Carbonaro Effect for years and absolutely love the show. When I saw Magic for Humans advertised on Netflix I was hopeful that it would be another great family TV show like the Carbonaro Effect. Sadly, its not. This guy lacks the showmanship, charisma, and decency of Michael Carbonaro. As a parent, I am disappointed that this shows slips in adult content, like a giant penis mowed into a lawn, talk about the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause not being real, using a penis pump as a prop, asking sexual questions of his participants, among other things, etc. I am definitely not a prude and enjoy adult humor when appropriate, even raunchy humor, but for this type of show its completely inappropriate and unnecessary. Its does nothing to enhance the show. Again, it's the entertainment industry's plan to corrupt and sexualize children as soon as possible. I do not trust Justin Willman's judgement and no longer allow his show in my home.
I really don't understand what this show is trying to be. It's plays itself like it wants you to accept the tricks as real, but it's painfully obvious they're all staged. But if it's trying to be a parody, it's not nearly over the top enough to actually be a funny; you spend too much time sitting through tricks being tediously set up and played out in a way that's clearly trying to sell them as real. It's so tonally confused, I have no idea what it's actually going for, what I'm supposed to feeling when I watch it. It's not entertaining as magic because it's blatantly staged, and it's not entertaining as a parody because it spends way too much time trying to seem real and has way too low of a gag rate. What exactly am I supposed to be entertained by?
EXACTLY what my g/f and I were saying after the first episode alone. It's not as funny or satirical as Eric Andre or Tim and Eric (T&E produced it), but the magic tricks were terrible and not entertaining in the setup. We couldn't figure out if they made the show to troll people (that being the gag) or if they wanted us to actually believe they were doing tricks without CGI, considering the CGI is bad at points and also the reactions from the actors are not believable. I just don't get what they were going for, as you said, the major problem with the show is that they didn't pick a tone to go with and it's just not entertaining the way that it is.
Justin used to be a decent magician, I watched him years ago when he first started performing on tv. Back then it was sleight of hands and a funny personality. Somewhere along the years he stop growth as a magician and started becoming an entertainer more. One look at the imdb rating you can tell there are hundreds of fake reviews for this show, with dozens of new accounts giving the show 10/10.
Is this intentionally being obvious about being scripted or are they so bad at hiding it? Like the invisible guy was a lot better at attempting to look like "real magic" than the freakin Goat Yoga. I just don't understand it and IDK why I keep watching this on Netflix but I do.
I wouldn't have been mad if some of it was staged, but CGI, really? The magical backpack was notoriously staged and CGI'd, I couldn't keep watching after that. I rather watch a CGI movie about magicians with a nice script.
This man needs to burned at the stake for heresy, sorcery and witchcraft. He practices the dark arts.. he’s definitely not working with actors he found at a city college improve theatre class and or Craigslist. He’s working with the devil.
In the episode where the 2 girls are eating in the dark (episode 4), he asks one of them if he can borrow her ring. She holds the ring between the fingers of her left hand and he covers it with a cloth napkin. Then exactly at the same time he tells her to pinch her ring through the cloth with her right hand, she does exactly that...not immediately after, but at the same time...as though she knew what to do.
Man, I thought Chris Angel was bad. This "magic" show was so lame I couldn't make it past the second episode. Camera tricks and people's reactions edited with other tricks that they weren't reacting to is not magic.
I thought this show was awful. In episode 4 he convinces two "random" people that they're invisible while other people (who you're told are in on the act) pretend that these people really are invisible. The people who are turned invisible are terrible actors, and not just that, but the cameraman following the invisible person around doesn't seem to be a problem. Wouldn't the invisible person notice the cameraman can clearly see them (stood right in front of them in some shots), yet no one else can? Moronic.
I got all the way up to where he pulled his wife out of the bag before I could detect the CG. Up until that point, the CG was pretty good, which is four fifths of the way through the first episode, if anyone's interested. Look, I just have a problem with "magicians" using CG because that just means the real magicians are sitting behind a computer somewhere making decent money but definitely not as much as they deserve. And that's after years and years of learning super complex things and dedicating themselves to developing a skill set which is universally valued while at the same time being universally underappreciated. Meanwhile, you've got an actor pretending to pull stuff out of a bag in front of a bunch of other actors, getting all of the exposure and most of the money. I don't respect that. Sorry. The "magic" of magic is fooling people who are standing right in front of you. If you wanna say people who use CG are magicians, then Michael Bay is a magician.
The part with the wife is definitely fake. That being true, it's safe to assume any "trick" he does may also be fake. "Magicians" using CG is pretty standard practice these days. Go check out Captain Disillusion's YouTube channel to see how easy it is to do these kinds of things with compositing in After Effects. https://www.youtube.com/user/CaptainDisillusion
TotPYsera he said no camera tricks but in that episode with the wofe he didnt say no camera tricks. I dont like being skeptical but the wife out of the bad looked super fake. I watched it over and over and I'm choosing to assume its not but if it is then Netflix needs to be ashamed of itself. There is a difference between magic trick and straight up lying.
5 Episodes are good. Last one ruined the taste, couldn't go past couple of mins. You don't have to add vulgar talk into the show to make it popular. And even in first five episodes you don't need to ask vulgar questions to your participants, the show is fantastic without it.
Very disappointed by this show. It's clearly fake with visual effects and actors. In episode 1, when he takes a woman out of a bag, we clearly see the strap of the bag added in cgi on the woman's hair.
I have watched the whole show and I think it's really good! I for one don't care if it's fake actors or camera tricks or if it's completely real, because it's still so fun to watch! I watch magic knowing that it's obviously not real magic and there's some trick behind it but still while watching I'm amazed and left wondering how they did it. I say to the people who refuse to watch because of fake actors or some editing tricks, to just let go and relax and have some fun watching some magic because at the end of the day it's just innocent fun meant to entertain I thought it was.
Kyoko Soryu yes It might be but even still I found it enjoyable to watch plus there are a lot of real tricks (I know they're real cause I know how to do them or have seen them before) in the show that they don't show in this trailer
Funny show. But there were many moments where it was clear that Netflix was trying to push their political agenda. The biggest scene this takes place is the very last one with the gender reveal. Was so weird.
Very well, I see what you're saying now. I appreciated this show more for its comments on society and human psychology more than for the tricks. I gather that it's probably what he was going for anyway. I can imagine that even actors, if information is withheld, will still react in the same way that you would expect most people to react. I think the best example was in one of the later episodes where he does the touching trick in the dark restaurant. The trick is based on deprivation of visual input and the lag time between sensory input and conscious thought vs input and reaction thought. It also was a good example of your brain tricking itself into "feeling" something based on other external stimulus.
Did you pay attention to the part where he tells the audience that he's hiring actors to trick the guy into thinking he's invisible? The "trick" was about the power of mob persuasion. If you make enough people say something consistently, you can fool even more people into believing its true.
Scroll through the comments of this video and other videos of his and see all the people saying “I’ve actually seen him perform at an event once “ I’ve actually seen people copy and pasting completely identical ones most popular seems to be at a good blogging conference. I know magic isn’t real and it’s no big deal but that’s not the problem.. it’s when you hire fake actors incorporate CGI, and tell your audience it’s all authentic is when it gets annoying ... and to top it all off make dummy accounts saying that people have seen you perform live giving the perception to people that oh if they saw it live then it must be real.
They lost my interest after the very first trick. He tied the phone of "random" people to a bunch of balloons and then let it go, and said he "backed it up to the cloud", en then he turns around and it's typed on his back, below his shirt with a SHIT ton of tape. You don't see him take the switch the phone or anything. They legit send the phone flying. There is no way he could've taped it to his back like that. No way. If you want to do a show like this, atleast do plausible tricks, and don't pretend like there's no camera tricks and that it's real magic. This is bullshit. Never watching it again. 5 minutes was enough.
It always amuses me that there are people in this world thatarr stupid enough to believe that he actually "does magic" and it's not all staged performances and camera tricks. How are you even able to function as adults?
+Devesh Parekh or you can pay an actor to say he is afraid of spiders. They leave nothing to chance. Go watch the video where they try to trick a guy into believing he is invisible. He is obviously acting (poorly) like he fell for it.
I can figure out how most of these work using common sleight of hand. CGI is not necessary, nor actors. For some of them you'll have to ask a few people before you get an appropriate answer, so those tricks won't work for a live show.
For example, if somebody said they were scared of road rollers, the phone trick would not have worked on them. Just don't show that person in the show and ask somebody else.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
