A Poorly Disguised Infomercial

"Don't get me wrong; I'm a major fan of Penn and Teller. I have all of their books, and I think their Showtime production "Bulls*it" is great.
But I watched this program when it aired on regular television, and I'm disappointed to report that it's mostly a commercial for the tropical Atlantis resort, pitched by Penn and Teller. Sure, they perform some impressive tricks, and yes, there are a few funny scenes. But it was painfully clear that the production was foremost a promotional device for the Atlantis resort.
As an alternative, I highly recommend Penn & Teller's Magic and Mystery Tour."
Three-piece suits and magic in the tropics

"P&T continue their tradition of doing tricks and revealing how they're done. The trick where they produced a card in an astonishing manner showed you just how much preparation goes into a trick. From the very start, where they show you how something went wrong during one of their tricks, to the end, where they vanish a submarine, this is good P&T.
The part I liked best was seeing just how well-trained a dolphin can be. The only part I didn't like was Aaron Carter singing the Penn & Teller theme song.
(Note: this was *not* an infomercial for the resort. Yes, they shot some tricks there, but they were also on other islands.)"
Penn & Teller will resort to anything

"One reviewer called this an "infomercial" for the Atlantis resort. I've got the DVD and, darn, I can't seem to find the bit where Penn & Teller give package rates and show the size of the rooms...
Seriously (and shots of Atlantis notwithstanding), if you enjoy Penn & Teller you'll certainly enjoy seeing them subversively dressed in business suits in a tropical vacation climate, as they bother and bewilder the resort guests. Sometimes you've just got to go a fancy shmancy place like Atlantis, to do that.
