I couldn't disagree more.
First of all, my wife was thrilled to death that I was finally going to watch an episode of this crap show with her (Okay...that's the name I gave this show and every freaken reality show except EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER...which always makes me cry).
That being said...although I liked the magic connection, I still don't like the show. As with all these shows, very little reality was happening.
I do agree that Andrew's wife is an absolute dream. Awesome, awesome woman. Exactly the kind of wife any man would want (I think I got lucky on that count myself). Her one comment about "how can you be disrespectful to anyone about what they do for a living"...made me love her even more.
But I also felt that Andrew made magicians look good! Yeah he drove into the fence (lets not forget he's a guy) but every time he was performing, not just kidding around, they showed him in front of EXREMELY appreciative audiences. Even to have the guy at the law firm think what he did was pretty cool. How could that possibly hurt the public image of magicians. They even showed the same lawyer having him perform for his kids party at the end. Again...a very positive imagery.
I was glad to see the other Dad loosen up a little, producers altering the reality I'm sure had a little to do with it...but lets face it...Andrews wife is an angel who can charm the bad out of anyone.
I was also glad to see that Andrews house got cleaned up...if indeed it was ever really that bad to begin with. But man...c'mon...you could have hid small countries in that house.
To Andrew and his family. Well done...and I hope this generates much work for all of you. May your passion in magic always reward you.
