Dynamo: Magician Impossible
Thu Jul 11, 9-10pm, Watch
This third series opener finds the Bradfordian illusionist in New York as Hurricane Sandy looms. Which prompts the thought that, if he’s so clever, shouldn’t Dynamo just shin up the Empire State Building and shoo the storm away in the general direction of Canada?
Because, whether it’s turning a basketball into an American football in front of the astonished eyes of a group of lads or making every phone in Times Square ring simultaneously, he seems to be able to manage most other impossibilities he sets his mind to. And crucially, unlike so many of his brethren, he’s not too much of a twat, either.
If there’s a fault, it’s that Dynamo’s trickery becomes so routinely bewildering that it’s hard not to get slightly jaded – perhaps some element of Derren Brown-ian demystification is in order. Still, impressive and by no means charmless either.
