The rope trick was marketed years ago by Meir Yedid. It was the creation of Jeff Stewart.

Angela gave away twice during her roulette routine where the "item" was in both the beginning show and finale. Watch out for "double checking" to make sure you're right.

Thanks for that. In Callahan's 'reality' HE invented it, I bet.

There was a strange moment just before the chick picked up her chainsaw. She seemed to be acknowledging someone at stage right and I think she said, "Okay", almost as if she were replying to someone signaling her about which box the fancy boy was in.

Congratulations to Mike Super the new "Phenomena." His mentalism was exciting, mysterious and fun to watch. The finale show was a blast. What a great opening effect. Even my wife enjoyed it.

CA will say he did the ultimate version two weeks before anyone else... and not with a pansy rope... he put an elephant gun through his belly.

Did anyone notice during the "envelope" segment, Uri in a rather strange commentary mentioned the numbers in envelope....Uri commented about Angel being born on the "NINEteenth," just "ONE" day prior to Geller's birthday (12/20). He then said he had bent his first spoon when Angel was "ONE." Kind of interesting commentary...and if it wasn't planned--very weird.

I did notice that, while wondering what the point of it all was - and then realizing the number 9 1 1 were named.

I'm thinking that Angel let him know somehow, the commentary was too contrived and disjointed, you know? If it was setup, it was a very subtle way of letting Uri remain the "true" phenomenon... If not a set-up, then what a coincidence! LOL

I'm not much for flashy mentalism with a lot of props but that was exactly what PHENOMENON called for and Mike Super delivered the goods consistently. His win was well deserved.

What really let the air out of an already deflating show was Criss's rant and calling everything "Magic Tricks" I thought this was going to be Phenomenal entertainers astonishing and blowing the audience away? Every time Criss said, "Magic Tricks" it just cheapened the show and really let me down.

Guess what Criss - You make your living doing "Magic Tricks" and you don't do it very well either, you need camera edits, stooges and an army of advisors.

One thing this television show did reveal was enlighten many home viewers about what a jerk Criss really is.

Jim's rope effect is his own creation...developed it many, many years ago. Incredibly clever methodology.


Did he market it? I'm fairly certain this effect was on the market years ago.

That's what I thought because I was considering using it at one time. Here it is (scroll down a bit):

Not bad for $5.00!

But maybe what Jim did is entirely different.

I owned the Meir Yedid version back in the early 90's. It was not the same method or actual effect that Jim performed tonight.

Anyone notice how CA almost looked afraid, that Uri was going to reveal his true age? When Uri stated that they were born 40 years and a day apart, he got sort of defensive. And he also, seemed defensive, as if he assumed Uri was trying to take credit for even knowing that.. as if Uri was claiming to have "read his mind" or whatever. CA said, "I told you that correct?"
It occured to me at once that love could be a great illusion, that makes fools of brilliant thinkers everyday

True - but that is the art of Cold Reading.

And CA did cut of Uri before Uri could continue.

Uri didn't get to where he was because he is unskilled in mentalism - he was pumping info from CA with a good first shot... and CA may have panicked... and despite what might be said... the numbers offered where 19, 40 and 1. (Yes, I am not going to bend reality - but a good cold reader etc. would forget the 40, wouldn't they? Although the 40 would be worked into the tradgey of 911 if need be....)

I don't think CA told Uri because you can tell from the show, CA does not seem to like Uri one little bit.... when they shake hands someday, I may reconsider that theory.

I have to agree that CA certainly did not give Uri a tiny ounce of respect. Even if he doesn't believe the psychic stuff he should respect Uri as a talented individual.

But who voted between Angela and Super for tonigths show?? Or was that decided last week too?


Don't lose sleep over it... I have been a personal friend of Uri's for over 15 years and I can tell you that the show sucked in the USA... Time to listen to Coast To Coast tonight with Jim K, and Mike S. as guests....

Uri and I at diner in NYC - below-



I am a big fan of Coast to Coast and sure enough, Angela, Jim Carol and Mike were on there last night as guests. The strange thing is before they came on, they had another guest on there who claimed to channel the dead.

Anyways, hats off to all of them and the careers that are just beginning. I am sure the show could have been much much better but someone else was calling all the shots.

I think Criss cut Uri off because he was afraid that Uri was about to give away his age. Criss doesn't want the public to know his true age and Uri was getting to that!
