Some comments from a TV discussion forum demonstrate just how badly convceived this show was:

"The most obvious fake thing was when Derren phoned Ben and at the end of the conversation Derren said “Can you see yourself on the telly” and the guy said "yes" in a surprised voice when he had been standing watching it during the whole conversation.2




Also, did you notice how much sweat was under Ben's arm pits. He was already nervous before he was on camera. It is not easy to act natural if you are in on the act.

I liked Derren when he first emerged. Seems he's tried to up the ante in these latest episodes & failed badly. If a stunt is too impossible it loses it's punch, people aren't that stupid, if it's not plausable at all then it must be a trick.

You've been good in the past DB, but not so good that people think you're now a god capable of ridiculous Jesus like miracles.

I agree, I liked Brown in his earlier days. "Devils Picture Book" was wonderful and one of my favorites. I just have a difficult time with some of the more Grand stunts and (no offence) any of the Hypnotizing demonstrations he does. I still love DB, but I would like to see hem dial it down a notch or two.

I really don't know what you guys are complaining about...

I thought it was a great Show!

Leaving it NOT working at the end is the brilliance, especially with all that Paul Daniels "get one wrong" with the Lottery thing, in the media...

If any of you who are complaining can make it work for real as a bona fide "fair" effect, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO BEAT DERREN BROWN... Take it!

If you can, that is... Smile

What a whiny bunch of female toddlers inhabit this neck of the Café! Shut up and be entertained for crying out loud!! Why pick nits when the nits are all a figment of your own misguided imagination? Sheesh... If you had a ounce of Derren Brown's talent and showmanship I'm guessing you wouldn't be here whinging like a little girl and trying to convice others of your supposed erudition.

What else are you going to watch on TV? Coronation Street?
