Penn & Teller's new ABC cop series

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

If Steven Seagal can be a policeman on a reality TV series, why not Penn & Teller.

Though the fact that Teller doesn't speak in front of an audience might lead to some odd interactions with criminals.

I can totally see you point.
The Steven Seagal show is OK.

I can imagine the level of uncomfortability
of Teller not speaking and just either staring
or making faces.
