Secrets of the Legend of the Seeker/Magicians

The lesson of this image is: don't count your hot chicks before they hatch.

Here's an image from "Secrets of the Magician's Revealed," a show which gives away the tricks magicians use to entertain us. The image is from a show that aired this Monday.

Seen above is a trick in which a hot magician's assistant is made to appear and disappear from an iron cage. Or maybe it's disappear and appear. I don't really care. What I like is how much the iron cage remembles the cages yo usee in commercial bondage films. Looks like magicians are getting their freak on again. Huzzah!

In other news ...

The sword and sandal/sorcery rush I referred to earlier has its first manifestation this very weekend: the premiere of a new sword and sorcery TV series "Legend of the Seeker," based on the "Sword of Truth" novels by Terry Goodkind.

Sam Raimi, whose production company produced "Xena" and "Hercules" back in the 90s is the producer of "Legend of the Seeker," so it has excellent chances of being a quality sword and sorcery series. ABC/Disney has cleared the series for syndication in 95 percent of US markets.

Will there be hot damsels in distress? Sexy slavegirls? Probably not, this is a Disney production. Maybe tepid damsels in distress AT the very least, there'll be some nice fantasy adventure programming.

The series is syndicated so check your local listings. It premieres November 1st or 2nd, depending. I understand it will be on WGN World, so if your cable channel gets the WGN superstation, I'd say you have a good shot at it.

Here's the story from a so-called mainstream source.
