breaking magic / magic of science: a thank you

Breaking Magic / Magic of Science is back. This new season features more incredible science, insanely dangerous stunts, and unbelievable magic.  It's easy to watch a show like this and underestimate the number of people involved. Ben, Nate, Billy and I would like to thank the production team behind Breaking Magic. Production can be difficult, frustrating and dangerous (especially on a show like this). Thanks for keeping us alive and making such a great show. I sincerely hope we have the opportunity to do it all again.

Breaking Magic airs Wednesdays in the UK at 8pm and 8:30pm beginning March 12th. Only on Discovery.

Thanks guys!
