  • The show is one of my personal favorites, as it gives an unique insight into the human mind and subconsciousness and how easily it can be manipulated.

    Derren Brown crosses the pond to bring his mentalist tricks to the American audiences, and they will be amazed, to say the least. Not only does he stun the viewers with his various techniques and his showmanship, from time to time he also explains how he achieves his results, revealing the brilliant simplicity behind his work. While European viewers already know the majority of tricks shown in the first season of Mind Control from Derren's earlier shows, most of it will be new to American audiences. The show is one of my personal favorites, as it gives an unique insight into the human mind and subconsciousness and how easily it can be manipulated.moreless
  • Derren Brown is the Best at what he does...

    9.0
    he states that no stooges or actors were used, if that is TRUE, then I am amazed! He is an artist with subliminal messaging and face-reading, there is no reasonable explanation for the tricks he performs. Some of his great stunts are cashing losing tickets at the racetrack, paying for products in stores using only pieces of paper and telling passers-by exactly how much money they have on them. I don't know how many people he goes through to get the final footage but you will be amazed. Derren is a consummate showman with no flaws that I can see, You'll be talking about it after the show has ended.moreless

    Dude, Darren Brown is real sweet.... i mean he isn't phykick or anything but geeze i swear he is. my sister and i tried the witch finger thing and it really works. I loved the teddy bear thing and the bmx bike thing..... i mean i had no clue how much our sub-concuis (yea i know i suck at spelling) mind picks up on. He and Chris Angel r really cool... he plays with your mind. i mean how long do u have to study physiclolgy 2 pick up on all of that. I think he is kind of phykick. who else can buy rings with paper shapped like money???? I know i coulnd't.moreless
  • >_> Nice.

    8.7
    It's pretty damn good considering it's from a foriegn country. I like to see what other shows from other counries are really about, and it's interesting to see what they might have on their tube. Some of the parts in this show are very arguable, by many critics. That's the way I see it. I say I give this guy a chance, he looks like he actually uses strategy to manipulate people into doing what he wants them to do. At least he's not some supposed psychic that came out of nowhere and said he's the best there ever was, blah, blah, blah.



    I say 8.7.moreless
  • HE'S OPENLY ADMITTED THAT HIS ACTS ARE JUST TRICKERY, BUT LAST NIGHT WE WATCHED AS CHANNEL 4'S ILLUSIONIST SEEMED TO PREDICT THE RESULTS OF THE NATIONAL LOTTERY, LIVE. WERE OUR EYES DECEIVING US?

    Derren Brown did it, but how?
