Nope. Nothing you see on television is real, because they are made for entertainment only. They are just appealing for the eye. Magick, is in fact, very real. It's just real in a different light than what television.
Also stay away from any fantasy subjects. Such as physical alteration (including changing any part of your DNA), controlling elements spells, controlling weather, ect. All that is considered "fluff" here, which is basically a nicer word for fake.
Stay away from that stuff and you'll be a-okay.
