banned#2
to be honest im sick of hearing his bleedin name
#3
Of course he missed on purpose,They couldnt use secret cameras in a casino and walk out with £180,000,All pre recorded and all fake,,,,,,,,,,,I used to think he was good but now he is just the same as everyone else,
#4
biggest crock of ***** ever, he really does think british people are dumb lol
#5
I think it was all a load of carp.
Very much doubt any of that was live. All set up. Fake casino etc.
Then he set himself up to fail to regain belief from sceptics after the "success" of the lottery prediction show.
Failed to make you think "oh his method must be pretty good as he was only one number out but haha he still failed"
Sceptics wanted to see him fail. He provided that. Believers wanted to see him succeed. He pretty much did that.

I wasn't impressed.
#6
pre-recorded load of rubbish......i personally think he's bored now and thinking of ways to impress the british public, but really he's making a pratt of himself
#7
I used to really like him but he's the biggest ******* there is about - he used to do a trick and explain it (ie Seance) but the lottery was a con and this seems a con (just completely prerecorded and fixed).

As no one could speak to Derren Brown he just prerecorded and kept doing it in a studio (made up to look like a casino) until he got the number next to where it landed. He was never going to win to show that he isn't infamable.

They were NOT live as you couldnt see Jupiter near the moon. It is currently near the moon and when they went live to the person who was "surprised" there was a moon shot. No rude comments please! It wasnt Uranus moon shot...

Also:

1) When was the last time you could just walk into a bank and take out 5k without pre-ordering it first or having a passport to show.

2) Who doesnt notice 5k missing between Monday and Friday???

3) How bad was the acting??? "There is a camera outside your house over there". "Oh yeah..." Like he couldnt see himself being filmed - the first thing you do is look at the camera.

4) I would have hit the roof if I saw my 5k lost. Even for a second...

There are many more flaws - I cant believe I watched that pap again. I think I was just curious to see what pap he put out this time!!!

Who cares ?? boring, enough already.

Lol also I noticed Derren was saying he couldn't see the guy as he was making his way to that van, yet when the guy got the end of the van Derren said something like yup get in there. He does do some good tricks but lately I haven't been impressed at all.
#11
conveniently ben was at home, conveniently ben was the one who answered the phone, conveniently the curtains wasnt drawn so they could film inside, conveniently derren was psychic and knew he had 5k or more in the bank & by some miracle he missed the number by 1 spot,

nice looking casino too! the list goes on lol
but good entertainment none the less

This guy has mastered his psyche to such an extent it truly is remarkable.
He demonstrates on such a subtle level his mastery of his own mind.

He has also demonstrated time and time again how our average minds are under developed. Basically we are mentally retarded (mentally masturbating) to an extent.

Much of his feats, if thats what you wanna call it, are not met with surprise or raised brow in areas such as, say the east - china, korea, japan...think about why.

If you understand, say why, driving on the right hand side of the road can make an individual weak of the mind, then maybe you have a chance to understand Derren's mind tricks.

But as always, people can only be exposed to information. Whether they understand it or not is upto their thought process or stupidity.

Most people with a developed mind have nearly always, throughout history, been labelled as "crazy" "fake" "ridiculous" etc etc.

History is just repeating itself :thumbsup:

banned#17

banned#18

banned#19
guys a phoney anyway
#20
So they are not allowed to have hidden computers or anything in Casinos according to the earlier clip with the guy from real hussle, yet he can fit a large camera up his sleeve and nt get noticed ,yeah right !

Used to like his sufff but this series has put me off
#21
I would have liked to see him take 5K out of my bank account now that would have been a miracle worthy of an hours TV.

As above all the 'main events' have been a total waste of time watching (still watched them tho).

Some of the stuff he does in the studio is more interesting than the main trick.

Again I used to really like him when he was quiet and unassuming, he used to intrigue me but now he seems to act like some sort of super hero strutting around. I see all his illusions as fake and staged now whereas I sued to genuinely be enthralled by his trickery and mind control.

Thing is, when a magician cuts a woman in half, he's not trying to make you believe that he actually cut her in half and joined her back together. He's trying to make you think, "oh that was a good trick, I wonder how he managed to create that illusion."
But Derren Brown is trying to make you believe that he is actually beating the casino, not trying to make you wonder how he is doing it.
