SCG Daily – The Magic Show #10 – My Favorite Things

Evan completes his entertaining week of video articles with a look back at set reviews past… and some of the hideous evaluations made therein. Warning – This video may cause milk to squirt from your nose. (If you’re drinking milk, of course. If you’re not drinking milk, that’d just be wierd.)

Hello everybody. I hope you’ve enjoyed a whole week of The Magic Show. It’s been a lot of work (just ask my wife, who misses me these days), but a lot of fun. It’s a very tough format to use, but the rewards are fantastic.

So with this last show, there are no holds barred. I’m talking about two musical montages and jabs at old writers and their misleading ways. I even get around to making fun of myself in the process.

I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly, but go for it anyway:
