    Default Penn & Teller: Fool Us

    In my eyes, finally we have some decent Saturday night TV. Anyone seen the duo perform in Vegas?

    No. Always liked their stuff.

    Yeah, good series. Isn't costing me anything!

    Not seen them live in Vegas, but would love to.
    If you think my attitude stinks, you should smell my fingers.

    Saw them in Vegas a few years back - excellent. And they hang around after the show and talk to the punters, which is nice.

    The guy who did the prediction trick... I was wondering what's to stop him just lying? Did he say he didn't write it himself? I wonder if he shared it with them afterwards - it must have been killing them otherwise like when you have a bug and just can't find where in the code it is!

    I think the trick was that Ross was the plant for that. So effectively he is the one who does a switch.

    In the pilot they had an adjudicator who knew how the trick was done, and decided whether Penn and Teller were fooled. I guess, although they seem not to talk about him anymore, he's still there.

    I thought they said no plants or 'unfair' tricks are allowed - of course misdirection and lying could be part of it. Having JR do a simple switch would be a bit of an anticlimax IMO.
