I don't think that the look in Jim's eyes was caused by Criss's critique. More like he was blinded by Criss's bling.

I thought tonights show was kinda boring because like most mentalism the more complicated a routine is the less entertaining. When you watch Derren or Uri they have very simple routines.

Probably Criss wants to put everyone down to keep them from stealing his job.

I bet their is a blitz of activity if not a fight after the show was done. I see criss getting his leg snarled in a wolf trap, a mishandled nail gun...and oh the whollop the Atlanta phone book can do.
Seriously I bet they are all busy as Bee's. We'll hear from someone soon I'm sure.
later

Are we seriously concerned that Angel said he works with Banachek? Really??? Banachek? They guy whose face and name pop up a dozen times on every Mindfreak show as a "consultant"? I'm all for protecting secrets, but come on.

Oh and the **** that ******* used was the same one that ********** used when he did his ************ routine at ****. Just sayin'.

"The producers should contact L&L for a proper audience " You can say that again, Elliott! They did have have Rachel in the crowd. I think it would have been awkward to have been the "special guests" chosen for each spectator. They may have well had three assigned seats on stage.

My overview of the whole show...I felt as if it were more magic. I did not leave the show feeling as if I was seeing people with special gifts. I'll agree there is suspense and drama with holding guns of any sort to your body, but is this they way I would demonstrate this art? I hate to say it, but I feel an ordinary metal bending routine would have sparked more curiosity from the audience. I will lean towards the first effect being the closest to what I would expect as an audience member. It left me questioning Until I learned about Criss's relationship with Banachek etc...geez.

The other effects seemed too proppy to me...beartraps, nailguns, phone books. I am really looking forward to Jim's performance. I think being paranormal is the way to take this...I felt like I was watching "Worlds Greatest Magic."

"Paranormalist" was never mentioned on the show, just "mentalist."

Practical Mental Boredom by the rolling in his Grave Theo A.

1) Billet Switches: Now Magicians AND Mentalists can be shunned

2) Publicity Stunts: MINDFREAK!!!!

3) Living or Dead Tests: The best thing for this show is to fade into oblivion quickly - AFTER it launches Jim's and Angela's careers to new heights

4) Magic Slates Smash over Heads: Behold how to treat audiences like crap.... except Ehud... he actually tried... but Criss said... MINDFREEEAAKKKKK

5) Mental Card Magic: watching this show - I was hoping someone would do the 21 card trick to spice things up
.....

(Coming soon: Mind Myth and Boredom.... and Mind and Magic of Boredom.... and the DVD set Mind Mysteries Reduced to Boring Dreck III)

Someone on the NBC message board just asked AzizalSaqr about the exact name and inventor of an effect being mentions by criss. AzizalSaqr claimed to not have known the reference....isn't he a magician? Even if you never heard of the exact effect when you here PK in the same sentance you know it's something.

I bet all 10 contestants are ****ed about that. They messed up. ( NBC, criss,) They are now the equivalent of FOX for pulling that crap years back...the masked magician... sad.

Not for a minute did I believe that trap hurt. That was comedy club stuff. He'da been better off with the 5 traps thing.

Azizsaqr..."Banacheck? Who dat?... y'mean that George Peppard guy from A team? Yeah yeah... the PK touches... in an episode of A Team he uses his mental might to deactivate a bomb or something..."

"Annemann? Whodat?.... oh yeah... he was that guy... who did that thing or something...."

"Criss Angel? Who dat.... huh... oh yeah... I heard of him once in Marakesh... what...?"

"Masked Magician... NO WAY! UNMASKED MENTALISTS!!!!...."

Criss removes his facemask... it is THE AMAZING RANDI!!!!

Uri: "Curse you Randy....."

Randi: "It is all over for you now...."

Uri: "If you strike me down now... I shall just become stronger...."

Rachel Huner: YAWWWWWWWN....

The concern wasn't the mention of Banachek's name. It was the mention of the words "PK TOUCH routine" and "Banachek" together, just after the touch routine performed. Angel might as well have supplied an URL directing viewers to an internet site where they might buy the routine. Extremely unprofessional.

Bob was correct, earlier. Angel is an abomination as part of this program.

Alexandre would have likely cleaned the house with his "test conditions" pen falling. Of course Criss would likely talk about Banachek and his connection to the entirety. He was overly "me, me, me."

I really hope that someone taped it so all the performers can watch it for themselves...You know what I mean? They didn't see what we saw....like Rachel looking like she needed a stiff drink at the begining. I think the other 6 were sitting out in the audience....right? or were they back stage in the green room watching. Either way They need to see and feel what we saw on the TV for themselves. I don't know how many of you have ever been to a studio audience taping of a show but it feels nothing like what it does watching it on TV.
