Tonight on the Sci-fi Channel at 10 pm is the second episode of "Mind Control" with Derrick Brown. Apparently in tonights episode he is supposed to be squaring off against a "Kung Fu Master". From the looks of it he gets students to drop or double over like they've been hit using only psychological techniques, NOT CHI!!!

Looking forward to it, it is probably going to show how all those students of Chi and No touch KO's are nothing but weak minded sheep.

If you mean the English mentalist... it's Derren.

You are correct, it is Derren my mistake. I just watched the part with the Kung Fu guys and how easy it was for him to get them to believe he was actually harming them without touching them. Pretty much the same thing all those Chi idiots do around the world.

Derren Brown must have the r34l dim m4k!!

Derren is a heavy mentalist, and is a master hypnotist. I love that he doesn't claim to do R33l magic, just tricks of the mind...his use of suggestion is unparalleled. he exposes a lot of BS in society...good stuff.

I didn't like the show at all. Extremely edited, and I think it's safe to assume that the majority of it is staged Criss Angel style. Ah well, guess I had my hopes up.

He claims that no actors are used, and from what I've seen of his stuff in the UK and currently in America, it seems pretty solid, with no editing, but I could be wrong.

hrmm....no actors is a specific claim. Says nothing about paying genuine people off. And as far as it being edited, take the scenes where he switched himself with another guy looking for directions. sure he got like 3-5 people with that on the show. Who knows how many he went through that didn't fall for it, and blew the joke. It's like those shows where they poll people with simple questions and then they compile all the footage of the idiots who got them wrong.

The trick he used where he got money for the losing ticket, seemed to be just him abusing stupid employees who just assume that someone speaking forcefully is correct and that they must have something wrong on their end.

Everything else just seemed staged to me, but who knows I could be wrong.

I've seen a fair amount of Derren's stuff, both taped and live. In one sense you're right that most of it is trickery, with a small amount of psychology and hypnosis mixed in. However, I think you're mistaken about the amount of editing involved. He also claims not to use stooges (which would include people paid to play along).

He's reasonably high profile over here. If he did acheive his effects by using stooges or just editing out all the failures, I think he'd have been exposed by now.

You fail at enjoying a TV magic show.
