very intriguing once you get into it
15 March 2013 | by nmarcotte69See all my reviews

when i saw the first episode of dangerous persuasions, i thought "really? a show about mind control? what is TV coming to?" and ill admit i didn't really like the first episode and i don't like that the last few episodes have all been about religion. its interesting to hear their stories and see it from an outsiders perspective and think "wow they did all that because they were told to do it?!" i enjoy the show, the storyline, the plots, and i look forward to more episodes. hopefully it isn't a one season show like other shows currently aired on i.d. i don't understand why the show was first called dangerous persuasions and now i think its called brainwashed. its a great show and it should be given a chance. ignore the IMDb rating its only the opinion of three people (four counting myself). i gave the show a rating of 8 because of the fact that most of the latest episodes have only been about religion and producers should look harder for stories
