Has anyone heard when the Criss Angel Mindfreak TV series is going to be on TV and what station? To be honest, I didn't really like him at first, but he is starting to grow on me....
Bizarrely Magical,

20th July is what I heard too.
There will be many stunts in the series. One of them will have Criss being electrocuted!

I is July 20th at 10pm on A&E. Also those in the New York Area, look for an upcoming stunt called Oasis. All I can say is it involves a glass bubble filled with water, Criss inside, an endurance stunt and an incredible twist at the end.

Origianlly I was brought in just for the mentalism, the buried alive and the bullet catch and eneded up being pretty much involved in every aspect of the show from the surreal word to the magic and the mentalism and even small details in some of the look of things. Myself, Johnny Thompson and Dexter were the magicians on board for the entire shoot, many others like Osterlind, Hillford, Luke Jermay, Ayela were consulted for other specific effects. Luke actually spent a couple of weeks helping out.

Episodes include, a buried alive, a bullet catch, hanging from hooks from a helicopter and taking a ride through the desert, a headline prediction, psychopysicological reading for a viper against 100 thousand dollars, picking up cars with your bare hands, burned alive, Russian roulette, blindfold drive, levitations, a very unique barrel escape, being blown up in a box with dynamite and so much more.

Each episode starts with a surreal world clip and then goes back and forth to the real word. The show is shot in reality fashion based around a real large stunt so you have many small magic stunts and effects that build up to this larger stunt. As a result you see people like Johnny Thompson, Todd Robbins, Luke Jermay, Dexter, Jacob, Lance, Ayela, Amazing Jonathon, P&T, Rob Zombie, Jonathon Davis from Korn, Mandy Moore and others in discussions with Criss behind the scenes and you see problems we encounter like high winds, the gaming commission shutting us down when we want to do a predictions stunt and the like (don't want to give too much away).

All in all this should have a look and feel like nothing else that has been done before. As it stands right now we will have 17 episodes in the can with 5 more to come.

Wowee! With a consultation line-up like that, the series could star Oscar Homolka and it STILL would be a "must see" --- as a matter of fact, it would be interesting to see Homoka as a mystic, wouldn't it?

Will be tuning in or recording, or both.

Hello guys,

is there anyone who could do me a favor and record this series on DVD?

So please, if somebody owns a DVD recorder and would do that for me, please contact me and we will discuss further details. Thank you in advance!

All the best,

I think Criss Angel is one of the best performers to have come around in a long time. Very talented magician!

Hmmm, seems like nobody in the USA owns a DVD recorder... still hoping that somebody could record it because here in Europe magic TV appearances are very rare!

All the best,
Robert

A&E is very good about putting their series out on DVD. It may take a while, but they will put them put out on their online store.

Also be sure to watch for a couple segments involving some creepy crawlies supplied by Steve and I.

I had a chance to see some of this in the making and it looks to be something really different. Criss is a great guy to work with and was always considerate to the special needs of my bugs and snakes during the shoot. I wish him the best success with this series.

Hugs and Hissessss,
Maria

I like what I have seen so far in the the trailers.

But my alter ego that twist balloons and cleans up kid puke is complaining about the comment "he took the cheesola out of magic."
What the heck is that suppose to mean?!?!
Just because some of us are family friendly or G rated doesn't mean it's cheesy. Dry humor is cool too! Isn't it?

Anybody else notice a disturbing trend in US entertainment and that is the more violent and R rated the more genius is attributed to the creators. What is up with that! CSI, the Sophranos, sex in the city, the Shield they are always nominated for awards.
If I saw a woman in half and use some original half wit humor Smile and I am cheesy, but if I let the blood fly, bones crunch and shock the heck out of everybody, now I am a genius!
Don't get me wrong, I like the creepy stuff too but I got kids I gotta entertain over here!
how about Criss Angel in Clown Freak, the Freaky Kids Hour, or Mind Zoom
(Yeah you won't be seeing any of those shows nominated for awards! Smile )

[derail]The reason that the shows you mention get awards is that they have great stories. Yes, violence and sex are part of those stories, but violence and sex are a part of life, like it or not.

If the shows were just nothing but people going around killing and screwing, they would not be winning awards, and frankly I don't think very many people would watch. [/derail]
