Watched tonights show. Just wondered why he had to put "Towels" behind the Crusher...to protect the crowd from flying glass, when he'd just broken whole bottles that would "fly" much more when breaking...and wouldn't they be more apt to fly from the front of the crusher rather than AFTER they'd been broaken..

Why does he do such dangerous "DEMONSTRATIONS". Why every week he says it might be his last moment breathing? Why Banachek? Why Sankey? WHY WHY WHY.

I liked the crusher stunt. Lots of stunts this new season and not that many illusions. I guess the ratings go higher with stunts. I think that some of the illusions are being repeated only with different looks. DO they ran out already? It´s only the second day of the season. Agh, the SPOV is back! Well at least it is not as annoying as last season. Cute black fingernails.

Well I do not know how it still runs.

I wonder why he dosn't seem to learn anything.

Now the question is this. Do you really think the stunts are done for ratings or "EGO"?

Maybe ego for himself, but I think the suits at the network think of ratings

I find "danegrous" stunts not done live pretty boring, since you know exaclty how it all turned out.

God, is he going to fly in every episode from now on? It's getting pathetic, especially when it's the exact same thing every time only at different locations.

I personaly think he's trying to make himself the best magician out there, even when people find out that
I'm a magician they ask me if I can do the stuff that Criss Angel does, my reply to that is only if I had a
camera crew!!! Then I do something that will blow them away. I am really getting sick and tired of his so called stunts and so called magic, It's all bunk!!! I know that I have harsh feeling about the subject but now I see that next week he's going to move a man's eyebrow to the man's chin, WHAT? come on Criss knock this stuff off and get back to the real ruts of magic if you are a magician.

You're right, that would definately warrant a high five or two...

You guys are right, it does come off as pretty fake.

I guess his target audience are laymen and not magicians. Who would of thought.

The problem is that a lot of laymen also see it as pretty fake.. so what's the point?

People are not stupid, they can see the difference between magic tricks and Harry Potter special effects.

No he is too busy fending off unwarranted attacks against him.

Haven't heard of those. I did hear him, CA , say he'd put someone in the hospital, but I didn't hear anyone say they'd put HIM in one... So who doing the attacking?

Slim King, as for camera shots in front of Cris, there are long lenses for cameras that aloow them to zoom in close and such. One needn't actually be directly in front of the subject to acquire such a shot.

What really takes the cake with this is the reaction it receives. Am I to believe that these are real, unsolicited spectators who just saw a man fly from 15 (or however many) stories up and their only reaction is to clap their hands and high-five him after this event?
Jesus, these people should be offering to follow him to the ends of the earth, right?
Seems a rather lackluster response to what would be a bonafide miracle to someone who really saw what we saw at home (and was not a hired hand).
I'm picturing Christ raising Lazarus from the dead and the crowd of people clapping as he emerges from the grave.
Silly. Just silly.

Some have been accused of having an agenda here. Some I see just want to argue.

I have always let it be known that I dislike Criss Angel. When I first read about him I was living in Germany so I was not subjected to his Cable show. I think his use of tricks to make believe that he can perform tricks and acting like he is the last word in Magic is deplorable. His behavior on Phenomenon was reprehensible and since then, every magician I have spoken with in person agrees. I doubt I have ever heard his name brought up at the Magic Castle without someone laughing out loud. He’s a joke in our circle and I am amazed that some people with magic knowledge still admire him.

Besides The Masked Magician, Valentino, I think Criss Angel is the only magician in 100 years that is openly disliked within the magic circle.

His view of what a Magician is and what my view are completely different. As long as Criss Angel spouts his false talents are genuine and as long as he looks down at fellow conjurers, I will point out his flaws.

So what are your agendas? Anyone that is participating in this on-going discussion about Criss Angel has an agenda. You must since you are spending your valuable time in the forums and posting your opinion.

I'm no fan of Criss Angel but your post begs the question; what was the Magic Castle's agenda in giving him the "Magician of the Year" award?
