Darren Brown's Apocalypse is one step before the Truman show.
24 February 2013 | by snowflea101See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong I understand it's appeal I really do, we would all like to know how we would react in an end of the world situation and that's what Darren's Brown Apocalypse does. It explores that idea. We imagine ourselves in Steve's shoes, We want him to overcome the horrors he faces and watch as an everyday man steps up and becomes a leader. However the entertainment values should not justify such a manipulative and grand experiment. Personally I tend to believe that the whole show was in fact faked and we as the audience are really the ones getting manipulated. At least this is what I have to believe in order not to lose a little bit of my faith in humanity. I find it really difficult to think that an experiment were the subject is unknowingly Hypostasised, his phone is hacked, is exposed to fire and explosions and then lead to believe that the world has ended would ever get the all clear from TV studios and psychologists. But lets just say that it's not fake and everything we are seeing is real. In fact your not just risking trauma to the main subject but could possible be endangering lives of actors, What if Steve all off a sudden had an instinct to fight back against the zombies and killed an actor. What if the stress of the situation was so much that Steve had a complete mental breakdown. Calling Steve lazy and saying that it's for his greater good and it will teach him a lesson should not excuse something this extreme and more importantly should not be grounds for good and acceptable film making. Peoples lives are not something to be played with and the human minds are fragile things and should not be experimented on for the entertain of others. I really hope this is not a glimpse into the future of TV and film making.
