Perhaps you could take up a collection for a small wager, and I bet Roei and I would cover the amount Smile

Man, I better start scraping my money together. My winnings will fit nicely next to the car I buy from backing the Phillies to win the World Series!

I have to say, the comercial, REALLY was not only high profile, but aside from Criss, really made me want to watch it!

It for the first time swings the pendulum to a good direction as far as I am concerned. If the show and the production values and the hype live up, I have a napkin around my neck to eat my words! (Which believe it or not I will gladly do!)

Good luck to all who are involved by the way!

Wow - looks like Jim/J ack is not himself - he can't even spell his own name, or... is it a new incarnation or discarnate entity?

Jim, are the phenomenon contestants going to pick the Sunday Night Football games for NBC? That's something I could put my money behind!

I heard that callers would be encouraged to expose the methods behind the mentalism effects.

No matter what the network and producers tell everyone, a show like this will definitely have some exposure. After all, the Israeli version had quite a bit of exposure even if you don't include the bit where Uri Gellar put the magnet on his finger.

Posted on Reality TV World:

"In addition to its two-hour Halloween broadcast on Wednesday, October 31, NBC will broadcast each of Phenomenon's one-hour episodes live and also implores home viewers to try and debunk the contestants' tricks.

"We hope viewers will watch with their friends and talk about and debate what they see, making this a truly interactive television experience," added Plestis."

NBC will not likely destroy any opportunity for additional seasons... so I strongly suspect exposure will not be a major problem at all.

All you are looking for here is someone who can tell a good story with conviction and then manage to entertain us while feigning abilities.

If Mr. Callahan is indeed a participant then toss the "feigning abilities" aside.
It has been noticed that when ultimately pressed, Mr. Callahan has indeed managed to demonstrate the unexplainable even to himself. He more than likely worries to reveal that. Tricks or truth is his likely concern.

Exposure is no worry. The art of Mentalism has evolved well beyond the techniques that many fear will be exposed. The general public has no use for the office supply store secrets. They cannot nor desire to retain those mundane details even if exposed weekly. They care not. They want only to be entertained.

As for the other true secrets? Those are always well hidden...hidden in the same box that hides the secrets to great theatre, poetry, music, film and all the other arts. Yet it is a tiny box. Must be magic to hold at all Smile

Popcorn might be appropriate for watching this show and I'll pop some into your mind.
On October 24 during daylight hours you WILL remember to be certain to have popcorn on hand for when you watch the broadcast. Those of you not fond of popcorn will merely string it for Phenomenon decorations.
Done.

I'll just step back to the corner and continue to listen while popping corn.
