Mr Brown and his awesome mind controlling powers!
8 January 2006 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

He's played Russian Roulette, he's held a séance...he's done...some other stuff, but now Derren Brown is using his awesome mind control powers to subliminally influence four lucky contestants to steal £100,000 from a security guard on a quiet London street! I like Derren Brown because, aside from being good at what he does; you can tell that he genuinely believes that he is great. He also makes a great host, and unlike a lot of other TV 'magicians', he's willing to try stuff that hasn't been done before, and therefore new and original television is the result. This show proved interesting for me, as a lot of the methods are used are linked to psychology, which is an area of fascination for yours truly; shown by the fact that I'm studying it at University. The way that Derren subliminally influences people is genius, and also very funny. There is a part during the show when the contestants are convinced to steal some sweets from a newsagent. Naturally, it starts to arouse the suspicion of the shop assistants after ten or so people wearing suits have entered the shop and tried to steal something! Overall, this isn't the best thing I've seen on television - but it one of the best shows recently, and I hope to see more from Derren in the future.
