I am not going to put links up here but a five minute search will show many reviews from lay people who are disappointed that he no longer does his "clever tricks".


Surely even you would agree that there would be even MORE negative reviews if he was still just doing "clever tricks" and hadn't progressed in any way. In fact, he probably wouldn't even have a career.

I agree totally he wouldn't have a career and would've disapeared from TV by now. There would be no reviews at all! that's the point I've been making.

In fact I greatly admire his ability to keep up there. I think its his best trick so far. I personally don't like his tv shows anymore. But You have to admire his staying power.

I think the dead horse will beat itself up eventually. Lets wait and see.

I finally saw the show last night. I thought it was terrific, and Derren came across as the talented, warm, caring person that he is.

I can't speak for what is on British TV, but I've certainly never seen anything like "Hero" on American TV.

When I read much of the criticism here, I am reminded of how I felt when new Beatles albums came out. I would say to myself, "I hate this new stuff. Why don't they make more songs like the ones I know and love?". But then as I listened again and again, I began to love that new album, too. The Beatles pulled us along with them as they grew.

Derren has stretched and grown right before our eyes. He's not the "Mind Control" guy any more. He is a great performer with a great intellect and a great heart. I'm eager to see where those qualities take him. And us.

Good wishes to all,

Bob

A well constructed and thoughtful argument. I'm converted.

Just realized that I forgot to mention S. Long, who has had a brilliant hand, from time to time, in helping Derren to realize his artistic visions.

And you saying that is NOT force feeding?

My eyes are open and I still like it.

It is entertainment and will always be subjective as to who likes it or not.

For example, I for one do not like Juan Tamariz's show or style but you are free to feel however you want about him...

Really Adam.

Am I imagining this or do I remember correctly that a second Derren special was due to be broadcast a month after Hero (which was shown on Sept 8th)?

There is no indication of this in the Channel 4 schedules or on Derren's blog.

The timer was set for another person to become a hero but thet does not mean that it will be shown then. It is probably a prerecorded event to be braodcat in the future
You might say reality is the result of complex negotiations between the observer and the observed. But that is simply a point of view.


Many Thanks

Though no doubt it will be called LIVE

if you read earlier, you can see some of my actual thoughts
the ones presented later are due to this thread going nowhere sensible

if you truly believe something your ideas shouldn't be able to be swayed by a post on a forum, there is no point arguing about it,

I posted my thoughts when it was mostly a discussion rather than bickering that came later, hence I added what I felt people would understand

Just had a thought, this thread is in the wrong place as it was no demonstration of mentalism, more just hypnosis/entertainment, perhaps more useful in Not Very Magical?
