I watched this episode last night. Even if you are not following Love (which happens to be a pretty good show), I recommend seeing this episode just for how it deals with magic - there is a lot more than the usual superficial views. There is obvious respect for magic, but also valid (and sometimes cringeworthy) realistic criticism of magicians and their world. Much is also said about the spectator's experience, and the potential pitfalls of bringing a date to the Castle. Overall, the most realistic and even-handed representation of a current day magic experience that I've seen on television or in movies.
