Yawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn!

Bought the DVD. Not much new. The usual tricks from Sankey using goshman pinch, shuttle passes, fake takes, double lifts and mini bells that ring/don't ring. He throws in the standard crazy faces and same old silly voices.

Skutt brings something slightly new to the mix but nothing mindblowing. A coin up the nose (that flashes), revelation of a card on a napkin using a wet teabag and other tricks that are forgettable e.g. coin in shoe.

Shoestring production budget. Vacuum cleaners and drills in the background.

Some of you will buy this anyway as I did.

That's life.

Well, I bought it but haven't received it yet. Disappointing to hear. I really like the effect Transient. Oh, well. I'll post my thoughts when I receive it.

Well, I totally disagree with Sooty on the this one. Terrific off-beat effects. Mike Skutt is a talented guy. He and Sankey work very well together. Some nice sleights, too. Mike's coin switch is really good. I had never seen it before. There are some real gems on here. I'll post a formal review soon.

I watched the demo video ( http://www.hanklee.org/xcart/customer/pr......p;page=2 )and wondered why I should buy this. The lampshade thing was like "Did I miss something? Was something magical supposed to happen?" The other parts of the video didn't really show anything to make me want to buy it.

The lampshade bits are gags. They are not actual tricks. There are a few routines like "Dirty Laundry", "Jorge Washington", "Siamese Change", "Twists in Time", and even "No Way Out" that I think are very nice. This isn't for everyone. But if you like your magic a little left of center, there is some worthwhile stuff on here.

Interspersed throughout the dvd are little gags and bits, like most Sankey dvds. But they aren't long.

I think that Jay's picture vis-a-vis Skutt's on the dvd is not so flattering. OMG, Jay looks like he's 50 years old!

Both of those pictures are terrible! Not the best cover. But I do "No Way Out" quite a bit these days. A lot of people will take one look at that trick and think nothing of it. But it plays great.
