I've heard of him, but don't ask me why I thought he did more Magic, than Mentalism. Okay the First special. I though the routines were good, though to me, I think some confederacy was at work, (The graffiti, unless those people were **** fast painters). The blind fold stuff was great. I liked the metal bending, but except for a few times, I personally don't think the silverware was real. It COULDN'T have been. True he was in a resturant, but who knows what "inside work" could've been done. I know we can't dosclose secrets, but along time ago, I made a post on whether we were allowed to specuale stuff, as one guy had, and they said yes. I don't want to disclose anything. I liked his Muscle Reading. He is very good. Do I think it is possible to do GREAT MENTALISM on T.V.? Sure, BUT I think you got to pick your material very carefully so you don't come across as using confederates. The secong special Mind Games was my MOST favorite out of the two. Now on to my review of that show....

This was VERY GOOD. I'm COMPLETELY baffled at his Card Trick (Mentalism) where someone names a card while another person names a position in the deck. NOW that's AMAZING. Do you know where I could learn that EXACT version. I saw no Sleights. It was VERY CLEAN. The Bathroom trick was great too, but again "inside help" maybe. I really loved how he dids the Zodiac trick. I couls see where he was going with the sign. As far as the Day, I don't though. You see that's what I mean, with on T.V. Mentalism. You never know exactly WHERE in the trick did the camera start rolling. I like the dramatical way he did the "Nail" Trick. The guy knows his stuff. I like his personality a little better, than David Blain's. I think though that "Some" of David Blaine's tricks might just be a tad (A TAD) stronger, in some ways, but I'm talking more Magic there. I think Alain's poker routine was good, and so was his Spirit Slates. I'll review David Blaine's, :Magic Man" special soon.

The silverware is completely 100% real.

Really. I thought they were P*ANTED. I know VERY LITTLE on Metal bending. One day I wanna get that banachek DVD. It doesn't seem possible. I see the thing flexing by ITSELF !!! ... lol. Then when it twisted that was wild. You HAVE TO HAVE super human stregnth to have it twist. I only know a couple of methods. On Mondo Magic, I know of J.B. did it, (On the O*F****), but Alain's was so clean. But like I said, I know VERY LITTLE about Metal Bending. Thanks, Ed, (Eddini).
