    For their latest trick, Allison and Clint (along with their lovely assistants Dominick Suzanne-Mayer and Caroline Siede) patter about ABC’s newest, weirdest magician/cop procedural, Deception! Is it secretly amazing, or does it just provide the illusion of quality? Or is it both?


    Along the way, our hosts also celebrate John Oliver’s deep dive into Bitcoin, discuss the premiere of NBC’s painfully earnest musical theater drama Rise, and talk about Syfy’s upcoming superhero prequel series Krypton with the show’s star, Cameron Cuffe.
