In The System, Derren Brown amazes us by being able to correctly predict the winner of horse races every time. Derren persuades a woman to place increasingly large bets with her own savings based on his picks.
A member of the public is given a second chance at life when mentalist Derren Brown makes him realize how important life is by tricking him into believing that a meteor has hit the earth and is now populated by zombies.
In the first programme, Derren sets up a fake pharmaceutical company which claims to have developed a drug named 'Rumyodin', with the ability to inhibit fear. In the second, Derren looks at the psychology of religious belief.
The Gathering was a live stage show performed in a secret location (hidden from the audience). The audience was hand picked by Brown and included psychologists, college students, celebrities, psychics, taxi drivers, and magicians.
Derren does it again! Although conspiracy theorists would say that governments have been doing this for decades. Three business men and a woman are put through a selection of "motivational" courses where Derren aims to subliminally motivate them to perform an armoured car raid. Do they do it you will have to see! Derren may at times be a little too smug for my liking but you can't do what he does without having a commanding ego. Not much more to say if you have seen any of Derren's previous work you will pretty much know what to expect from this latest outing. Funnily enough with all that real money being thrown around it did not say at the end if the participants got any of it for going through what they did!
