Go Jim. The Parson is pulling for you.
Lots of Psi power going your way.

My opinion of Criss and Uri did not change.



Peace,
Parson

Much truth there!

I was hoping Jim would put the bear trap where it would fit. But he has too much class. At least 2 of the performers tonight are much better than Angel, and they are all much more creative.

At least none of them yelled, "MindFreak" when they finished.

Didn't Gerry appear on NBC a few years ago with his own show?

Criss is there just to attract his mindfreak audience. Got to be about ratings with Fox thingy.

Some good thoughts here that never occurred to me. I have only been on local TV with 5 minute segments and no live audience so I would be way out of my element on anything like this type of reality series. Material and routine would keep me awake for many nights.

I was surprised they showed the Uri/Johnny Carson piece (the salt shakers) during his mini bio.

Tony Eye,
I rarely disagree with you. BUT, you are being generous with your statement, "at least two."
Every d****d one of them is better at what they do than Angel.
They even did it without camera tricks.

A much better scenario for this show is to pit 4-5 mentalists top. In a 2 hour show down, where each get about 20 of performance time. Then, after all have done their thing, do REAL people, or at least some people who know nothing of the art, judge and the home audience judges. Then you get a return 1 hour show, where you learn the results.
A mentalist is supposed to be superhuman, and by that very nature, unique. To have 10 people against each other is overkill. I mean how many 'special' people can their be? A mentalist is a special person who has a gift that not many others have. Right? Not a gift that can be found on every street corner...
At least Jim will have an edge with his persona. Because of that, I still think he will win.

The highlights of the show were definitely Criss's hair and Rachel Hunter.

Lighting & music were good too.

They should have! At least the sarcasm would have been funny and caused some genuine tension.

Performing out of the box effects on national TV, what would that guy expect. Am I wrong here, or was the phonebook effect almost right from the box? Jim WILL make this show more interesting, and I think if the show hooked interest on this first one, they will get better.

Wife commented about the way Ross took the stage. I said that I did not notice.
I was looking at Rachel.
Sleeping on the couch.
Oh well.
It was worth it.

I am sure Gerry can do much better then this one. It was too long and drawn out (pick a pager number, now which column etc etc) for the time alloted an no climatic ending. He will get a second chance unless all of next week's performers are awesome. Good thing for the next performers though, they can all learn from this night and make necessary changes.

Mr. Angel’s partial exposure of Mr. Segev’s routine was not appropriate.

I think the post-effect interviews of contestants can be problematic for dual reality bits. I wonder if the performers knew about that part in advance.

The producers should contact L&L for a proper audience Smile

Tony,
I like Jim Callahan, but please let's not refer to him as JC.(His ego is big enough already.)

Peace,

Looked like Jim Carol wanted to choke Criss. Just that look in Jim's eyes when Criss was doing his critique, priceless.

So Angel, with his new show coming to Vegas slags a guy with a show already in Vegas...Who'd a thought?
A conflict of interest maybe, but I had to agree with him. You can't win with out of the box stuff!
