I was seriously laughing to hard on his cellphone trick, he had the spectators push in the numbers that they were thinking of and press send and it went to this girls cellphone, I was laughing wayyyy to hard. What did everyone else think of this?

I personally thought yesterday's episode was extrememly lame. I like what Criss is doing for the magic community (as in making magic more mainstream), but he really sucked yesterday. I was also disappointed because when I was looking up this episode, it said that he was going to stop his pulse completely (I assumed in both wrists, chest, and neck). Which I never seen him do, so it really dissapointed me.

That'll admit was wrong, they advertised the 'pulse stoping' which never occured. The problem with mentalism is that it comes off a little bland when on t.v. He does some good mentalism, and I would expect as much with the people around him, but I don't like it for tv.

If you want to see someone stop thier pulse go to Wayne Houchins web site. He is the inventer of this trick, and has a video of it on his site. It is pretty cool.

No he is not htis has been done before him. I think Derrren Brown and Luke Jermay has already published it in one of his books.

THanks

The stopping the pulse is an ancient fakir trick. The one that Criss Angel was suppose to do resembles one that magicians from India perform, and have performed for hundreds of years.

I know how Criss Angel did most of the mentalism. I'm not exactly sure how his last prediction (the one where he predicts the ending of the race) worked, but I have a vague idea. All the other ones I have figured out ways, and the one with Mark, I know for sure how it could be done. Criss does have a great skill.

I understand how mentalism isn't great for tv. Personally I love doing it for others. It has great reactions. My main problem with his show is that he didn't do what I was expecting. That just dissappointed me, which soured the whole show for me. I really wanted to see him stop his pulse.
