Well, goodness. I feel like submitting the same review for this DVD as I did for volume 1. Maybe I'll just make a few improvements on the last review.

I still think I'll make a new category of effect: "Nice variations on classic themes."

That's what this DVD is, too.

The good: He's getting a lot of entertainment out of a simple boon writer with House Number. It's a nicely designed routine with laughs and a plot. His story deck wasn't bad, either.

The bad: His Cards Across has nothing to add, other than a bit of audience humiliation.

The ugly: Seeing with Fingertips. This is the classic Sightless Vision made famous by Kuda Bux. The problem is that his poor volunteer was showing physical signs of discomfort with how she was being treated.

  • Breaking the Law - A rope and hoop routine that will not only amaze, but also have them laughing out loud. Brilliant thinking!
  • Thinking On Your Feet - A truly great routine for the "Story Deck" plot. Written by Mel, complete with all the gags and subtleties. Worth the price of the DVDs to any working magician.
