Criss Angel:Mindfreak debuts tonight

Postby Y`s Guy » Tue Jun 05, 2007 5:48 pm

I have only heard of this guy and have never seen him...until Monday night on a repeat. I caught the last 15 minutes of an episode and he had me laughing. Mostly because of the crowd reactions to the two body-separating stunts he did.

What's the consensus on him? In 15 minutes I put him ahead of Blaine for sure.

I find him annoying, in a grating-on-the-nerves kind of way. The guy just makes me cringe. He's so pompous and so full of himself, and all he's doing are tricks. If the guy really had magic a la Harry Potter this attitude would be understandable, but he's just a cheap version of David Copperfield.

He reminds me of a WWE runaway who now does magic. All that posing and self-importance, that kind of stuff.

So I think it's safe to say I won't be watching his show again. :D

Yea, some of his stuff is kinda cool, but he loses all legitimitness because he does the stunts on tv, where he could concievebly hire a whole crowd of actors. The stunt where he walked across water was obviously fake. He kicked off one shoe and it sank, while one floated on what looked like a clear plank. I was convinced of this after I saw no one swam directly in front of him.

I really can't stand that guy. All his tricks are so fake and over the top. Then when they have the audience members comment on the tricks it is so obvious that they are reading from a script and know that it's fake. :t :P

I have to say that the show was incredibly b-o-r-i-n-g. I don't even know if he deserves another chance.

I've only seen one print ad for him. It shows him with his shirt open and obviously clenching his abs. I hate the guy just from that one picture.
