Since the audience is desperate for it to work they let him get away with virtually anything. I've seen him say '4th Street' when it was actually '5th Street' and get credited with a hit. He says 'the car was found close to home; I'm getting a 4 or 5 mile radius' and the victim says 'yes, ten miles'. That's a miss by one hundred per cent, but the victim swallows it, because she needs him to be real so badly.
Even if he were, I don't see why anyone would want to watch this. It's utterly boring. It's the same old, same old, John Edward with his annoying voice going from audience member to audience member saying the same either obvious or vague statements over and over again.
That people fall for this is a tragedy and a testament to the horrid state of education.
- Nothing makes any sense. Water-allergic aliens landing on Earth without protective suits? Don't give me that "alien logic" stuff. It's just dumb.
- The divine message from God is "take the big bloody piece of wood and whack the alien over the head". Yeah, he'd never have thought of that himself. It takes divine wisdom to think of clobbering an intruder with a baseball bat.
- A Middle Eastern village finds out how to defeat the aliens (water, how original!) and from there it spreads throughout the world. How? We're conveniently not told, but it managed to elude the reporter with 30 cell phones and 50 fax machines. Every Pakistani peasant got the message, but CNN missed it. Yeah. Sounds likely.
- Did anyone believe Mel Gibson wouldn't get his faith back at the end? Even for a second?
Waste of time, money, and celluloid.
