I thought the same initially but DB put him into a trance on the bus and suggested something to him. Think this would have got rid of those suspicions.I know I'd react differently. I'm ready for Zombiegeddon. Even basic common sense - arm yourself. Never seems to cross his mind.
Do we really think this bloke has never seen, nor heard of, 28 Days Later, The Walking Dead, Day Of The Triffids etc.? As soon as I woke up in the hospital bed I'd be hugely suspicious of the whole thing.
Not to mention that, believe it or not, the Army isn't reaming with sexy blonde Sergeants wearing what Ann summers thinks an Army uniform is, giving you the entire story on an emergency broadcast channel.
You're not wrong. The scene at the end when he moved from his family to be met by the guru was a hoot. As far as he knew he was moving out of the room, no more, no less. At the cut, as he pushes the door open and before he knows who is waiting there, he's heavy breathing like a ten bob whore.TV for a nation of thicko's who like conmen and shows like xfuktor..
bring back Paul Dainels I say, notthis puff who's so...clever
The explosions were class. Nee debris, nee bus windows smashed but hey, the puffs of fire looked great.The show had an inherent problem. If you pick someone bright, they'll probably not be hypnotised as easily, and/or find a hole in the scenario that fucks it up. On the other hand, pick someone who is thicker than a whale omelette like this bloke and nee fucker can relate to him. I thought it was pretty well done, especially the techy stuff in ep1.
Don't be daft man.I love how people moan about him being a stooge and it not being 'real'.
You're kind of missing the whole point... you're supposed to leave for analytical mind at the door and enjoy it for what it is... entertainment and illusion.
None of what he does is real... same with Dynamo... who gives a fuck? You're just spoiling it for yourselves at the end of the day
These performers use tried and tested tricks and psychology to manipulate people.Derren Brown is an entertainer.
That show was only entertaining if you're stupid enough to beleive it wasn't all a great big hoax. Thankfully the world is full of stupid people and therefore Derren Brown is class.
Didn't Derren Brown do a whole series about this very thing - outing radical American preachers and whatnot?These performers use tried and tested tricks and psychology to manipulate people.
It's clever but just conjuring.
