I'm not against the use of stooges at all. It's just when you combine all of it with camera editing simply out of lack of creativity as an easy out... it's a sign of laziness. I could do an amazing TV show as a mentalist. Stopping people on the street, reading minds under impossible test conditions. I name dates, places dates of birth. Fools everyone watching. Sealed predictions, blindfolded divinations... you name it. The method? They're all just friends of mine and I tell what to say and act surprised. Am I a genius? You don't have to have ANY talent to just cut a video and have a car appear.... none. Now if you add stooges saying "Wow, that's the most amazing thing I've ever seen... I was standing right here live and that car just appeared right in front of me!", it doesn't make it any better or take any more skill or thinking. It's just a lazy cop out. We will ultimately be judged by our choices we make. Cris Angel is viewed as a joke by many... yet some think he's the most amazing thing ever. Make your decisions on this and let the future generations judge if it showed any wisdom or talent. [/quote]
