    It was a good show but I'm not overly convinced by it all. For example, he could've taken various shots of his daughter playing with various coloured crayons, he also could'e placed various different "toys" as she was sleeping. The cube and the word is a little more difficult to explain away.

    Every page could be premarked and the Sharpie has no ink, not sure about the cube.

    Good shout on the sharpie.
    Despite what he said, the Penguin card WAS slight of hand.
    The red crayon was probably the only one in the box that Walliams could remove (others attached to box?)

    The pattern on the cube when Amanda hands it back for guy to put in the box differs from the revealed pattern.
    Watched it back in slow motion several times and something definitely goes on with the cube.
    The key is that initially the centre orange square has 2 adjacent yellow squares along one side, when revealed, the orange centre has just 1 yellow adjacent square.

    Credit to the guy, because he performed the act very well.
    Dare I question the validity of the back story, just to elevate the act by adding the emotional element.

    Mrs K hates it when I always figure out the magic acts on BGT!

    Having said that, "magic" is all about skill and being able to convince the audience to wonder and believe...in the moment.
    The audience do not have the luxury of replay and slow motion.

    You need to get a life, itís an illusion, entertainment, with a nice emotive story attached, to even query that says more about you than the act!

    Re: Britainís Got Talent

    Someone has an interest in magic/illusions and tries to analyse what went on.

    Result on here is that they get someone going off on a rant. Unbelievable!

    Did someone get out of bed the wrong side this morning?
    Your comment is way out of order!

    In the posts prior to mine, the discussion was around how the "magic" worked, yet you have chosen not subject those posters to abuse.
    My post was simply a follow on from those.
    I understand that my questioning of the back story could have hit a nerve, but as I said, it elevates the illusion.

    As KenL recognized, I do have an interest in magic/illusions where I enjoy well performed acts in the moment.
    What is wrong for me to then try to figure out how an act worked....especially given my interest in the genre.

    Re: Britainís Got Talent

    If you watch magic being exposed there is always an answer to the trick,as has been said itís about trickery and illusion.
    I must admit he pulled the trick off brilliantly and executed the story brilliantly also.
    The whole show though is so staged and the judges cringeworthy at times,and how bad does Ant look.
