Yeah, his Halloween special is on right now. So far, I am so disappointed by it. It's just so lame. Hopefully it gets better.

I was really dissapointed by this show. He did do some good acting, but I thought the majority of the show was just crap.

Actually, I think his crying looked very real (which actually annoys me because he knows fully well that what he is doing is an illusion, and in my opinion, he crossed a line), and the glass thing, it's just like an Ouija Board, which work exactly like that. My problem with the show is that he protrayed everything as if it was absolutely real, and took it way too far. I think he should have put some type of disclaimer in the show, that what he was doing was purely illusion.

Well he said at the end of the show that he does not believe in ghosts, so it should be a ringer to some people that none of that stuff was real.

He did say he didn't believe in ghosts at the very end of the show, but it was just a very brief thing, something that I think many people would have missed. I nearly missed it also. In my opinion, he should have stated at the beginning of the show, some type of disclaimer. I believe both Banachek and Luke Jermay do this (I mention them because they are consultants). He didn't have to say something like, this is all fake, but atleast claim that he had no supernatural powers and it's not possible to contact the dead. Luke Jermay has a very clever way of doing this (I forget his exact wording, but he includes it in one of his books).

I thought it was very disapointing (what a shock with angel) because of a couple of main things:

1. He made out like it was all real, and the stuff he was showing is the most important stuff for magicians to expose. Its more important than scams and pickpocketing like he exposed in my opinion.

2. It just wasn't very good, it was kind of just easily explainable mostly. And it was dumb for him to do an episode where some people go somewhere haunted with him and expect to see haunted creepy stuff happen and then make the episode like Angel had nothing to do with it happening.

The main thing is how most of the stuff is stuff that a lot of people think is real, and he made out like it was real. My parents watched it and I couldn't convince them it was just trickery. They kept saying how there were demons doing all that stuff and that it wasn't Angel doing it, it was satan and little demons, and that messing with that stuff could get you possessed by the devil. I'm not lying or stretching any of that, its what they were saying. If Angel had exposed it then they would see that its fake like the scams and frauds are that he already exposed because when another person on tv agrees with what I tell them it makes it harder for them not to realize its fake. But instead he showed it as being real so people still think its real.

Also I missed him saying ghosts aren't real or whatever so apparently it was really easy to miss that part. I don't think a disclaimer would be good enough with that, he needs to be exposing crap like that. Doing that stuff and showing it as real is seriously, seriously wrong to do.

i think he was over dramatic especially when the glass moved to spell mary. I cant believe his fake crying. It was halarious. My friend said that she was too freaked out to watch it so she changed the channel. I cant believe people actually fell for that.
