Well first, since it is for the show, editing. The easy way. The hard way. He could be using a similar set up to what Blaine used to walked through the Great Wall. He could have two of these "one of a kind T-rex" motorcycles, and have the first be driven by a body double. After all a fire suit, helmet and gloves cover a lot so it be easy. Then Criss appears on the other side, emerging from inside the landing ramp. Add some smoke and effects, and you could pull it off live. I can't wait to see it, so I know if I was right, or he used something else.

I believe it was Copperfield who walked through the Great Wall of China. Unless DB did it too.

Is it overkill for Criss Angel to have SO many seasons??

Why are we complaining that he has so many seasons. He just dumped 25 million. That no small change. So he is doing something right. So I don't think we have any room to complain.

While the content may seem a little diluted after so many seasons, I don't think that I would turn down an offer if I had what he had going for him. I'm not a big Angel fan by any means, but I can blame him....I'd do the same thing if it was offered to me.

He will have new material as he has assembled a new creative crew. That is the key, once you have the "deal".

I think some people are forgetting that Criss Angel can perform ANYTHING. Litterally anything. He uses 'techniques' other magicians don't use, that are only usable on tv, and so this allows him to do pretty much anything he wants. If he wanted to performed a trick where he saves a bus from falling off the grand canyon with his little finger he could; it would take ages to CGI, butits possible.

The creative team don't need to be very creative. Heres a list of things that are possible with Criss Angel's production team:

1. Flying from London to Paris (too high to be seen ofcourse)

2. Holding you're breath underwater for 98 hours.

3. Lifting a person at an arms length.

4. Regenerating into Matt Smith.

5. Time Traveling to visit Robin Hood.




They litterally can do anything they want, because its not performed in front of a live audiance. I have to say I kinda respect Criss a bit for that new home, it looks amazing. But that's as far as the amazingness goes to be honest. My uncle worked in CGI for years, and once you've seen films like Avatar and stuff, watching digital miracles just doesn't have any effect on you.

He won't run out of material, don't worry. But once people see him live, they will loose interest.
