Why is Midnfreak under the "Fantasy" genre while David Blaine's Street Magic under the "Documentary" genre?

Angel fantasizes about being a magician.

Because Blaine does reality when he is on television.

Usually you see him performing a live stunt or magic trick that is similar to a stunt or something like that in front of tons of people.

And in between time you see what a camera crew filmed him doing with real people in real situations. Its like if Blaine was actually entertaining you offstage, or if you were actually there watching his stunt thing.


Angel, however, well its blatantly obvious that his stuff is a stage show taken outside on the street. His television style is focused not on the reality idea of the show, but on making the best looking magic they can. So its not a true reality/ documentary type show unlike Blaine's stuff.

Although, Blaine has done stuff that was not very realistic on television, or at least it was stuff that he didn't just go walk down a street for the first time and do it. But mostly his stuff is more like what you would actually see, and more like what he would actually do than Angel.

And Angel gets into surrealism a lot in his show, which I actually like quite a bit. I would love to see more stage type performances with a surrealistic theme to them on Mindfreak.

But not flying over a sidewalk in a big city. That gets old before its new lol.
