Hi!

I would have liked to see Thorsten Havener in a different format than the Derren Brown MindControl Specials. Somehow I feel sorry for him, that Sat1 (the TV Station) copied the complete style of the show, even the opening sequence. I thought that there would be some creative TV people out there, but it seems, they just copied it because nobody would know Derren Brown in Germany... So they thought.

We have to draw the line...Sat.1 was not interesed to please us Magicians with a ,,new" Magic Tv Show Concept ( sad but no surprise):-). They thought RTL ( other TV Station) had Uri Geller so lets have our own thing and earn some money.Different Magicans were casted for that show but Thorsten got the job.Respect for that!But anyway who cares? There will be a second show in Febuary and then perhaps no more again.

Was it me, or was he actually copying the little nod that Derren does? If that was deliberate, then that really is low.

And he put his hands on the shoulders of the participant - just like mr. brown does... I agree, the rip off is not cool.

If someone can let me have a copy of this on VHS I can transfer it to DVD complete with menus etc. Any performances in other countries by menatlists known to us or otherwise would be useful to share amongst the group. Constructive critisism is a great way to assess a performance in a group environment like this.

Has anyone checked with Thorsten to get his side of the story?

The page for his show on sat1 can be read in translated form (english) here:

http://tools.search.yahoo.com/language/t......kenleser

The translation isn't perfect of course, but it does suggest some interesting claims.

Other languages can look up sat1.de on yahoo and translate. There is an icon for his show on the upper left of their homepage which will also be translated.
