LOL - I think the papers would have a great time if this was all made up acting

LMAO

I thought it started off ok and went downhill when he lay on the train track and wasn't even bothered,it wasn't as if he'd put him "under" at that point,it was ridiculously false.

I was told it looked very staged and not to watch it

looked like he was under to me.

Building up his confidence to let himself into a strangers house with the keys he'd found,that was hilarious.

I think he said at that point that it was the first time he was meeting him without hypnosis..........not sure though as i was only half watching it.

I must have missed that bit,he must have hypnotised me as well



I'm not sure...........i was half asleep. lol (Maybe he'd done me too )

I thought it was pretty good after just watching it, pretty inspired!

As he was walking towards the front of the aeroplane and just suddenly fell to sleep was the moment I thought it was complete rubbish!

It was a good show, but totally unrealistic.

He wasn't exactly a hero was he, he just agreed to take the controls to try to save his own life, you'd have to be pretty stupid not to if no-one else was going to!!!!

I think I'd be wondering why the dude kept going on the mic to tell others to fly the plane, why wouldn't he do it himself?

They let the guy who they knew was terrified of flying, take the controls on his own!! I'd have been very suspicious.

Can you really hynotise someone in one second tho??

such a load of rubbish, talking to him through a secret speaker in his bedroom and then asked him to come into the garden for a chat when he was "under" seriously, do people actually belive this can happen??

aslo the bit in the flight simulator, surely the view out of that wouldn't look real??

twas dark I believe. A few lights on a runway probably easy to make look real.

I must admit that i found the flying bit strange..............the simulator must have been on auto-pilot or someone else was flying as there is no way that he would have landed a plane with minimal instruction. He even brought it to a halt without reversing engines or applying the brakes. And he didn't use the rudders whilst flying.............CRASH!!! lol

yes, he was hypnotised far earlier in the show so was programmed to respond to certain events

But you drop out of hypnosis though, maybe he was hypnotised an hour or so before but I would consider that cheating as you can make someone dance like a chicken if they don't want to under hypnosis.

Wasn't great, but it wasn't staged, can you imagine the amount of lawsuits on Channel 4's hands if it ended up being full of actors? Exactly.
They wouldn't risk something like that, and on Derren's blog it even stated that they had lawyers going through the footage making sure there was nothing misleading in the show.

Wasn't a great episode mind, but it wasn't as bad a people made it out to be!

He's full of lies, like when he did the lottery prediction. Making out that he was revealing the trick by saying he actually predicted the numbers!!!
