...because we've had a thread for apocalypse.
starting on +1 now for anyone who's just missed it
I LOEV DERREN BROWNNNN
surely by now people would have clocked that if Derren Brown is involved it's not going to be entirely legit
I've decided to give the magic, mind games and illusions a rest. What I really want to do is a Panorama/Dispatches thing, about this medical expert. No funny business. You in?
for themselves and it wasn't real? and they just needed to not be scared of a bridge?
themselves the answer to your question would be yes
but it was a bit light really. I'd like him to do one of these types of CHANGE PEOPLE'S lives shows but really follow it through - like over two or three years.
i do find it hard to believe that anyone would take brown's word that he is making a documentary at face value, seems a bit suspect.
but given the selection process he uses he's clearly picking people who are either a bit dim, extremely suggestible in the first place or ideally a mixture of both.
it just takes the meat out of it a bit when i realise i'm watching some pretty dumb people being tricked. I'd like him to
but the truth is that most of the time people DO just take stuff at face value. it looks really obvious when you're on the outside looking in. but if darren brown was like "oh i'm making a documentary about the effect of placebo drugs" you'd just think, "yeah, that's the sort of shit he likes, fair enough"
but liked the bit when she was on stage at the end and mouthed YOU BASTARD at him.
but this was shit as fuck
i thought they all did
but I thought this was actually much better.
Sounds like next week's second part might ruffle a few feathers...
