The notion that all the wonderful effects Derren Brown achieves are performed using confedertes and stooges is patently incorrect. Why would Mr. Brown risk his entire career on even one person stepping forward and announcing, "I was a stooge." In his 6 years on British TV, this has not happened even once. And, incidentally, he performs the same types of things in his live stage shows, which sell out year after year througout the UK. Mr. Brown is a brilliant showman and "psychological illusionist." His performance pieces are unlike anything else on TV. Do yourself a favor and let him mess with your mind in his charming, inimitable way.
Very good start
I like the show very much! It's kind of like Obi-wan tricking the stormtroopers "these aren't the 'droids you're looking for" I want to see more of the examples of when it doesn't work--to give the show more credibility.
Amazing...and obviously real
The human brain is amazing and mysterious, as this show proves. Any intelligent person who is aware of mind control techniques knows that this is indeed "real". Just because you can't explain something with the knowledge you have, doesn't mean it's a ruse. Check this show out...New eps air on Thursday nights. I'm still astonished by last week's premiere!
