I really loved the first season of mindfreak though. The second made me think very low of Angel though. And I would much rather watch another magician like maybe Mcbride, Blaine, or Banachek than Angel.
Banachek is actually responsible for season 2 of Mindfreak. If you want to think low of anyone, you better start thinking low of him. You liked Mindfreak before he took over and hated it after he took over. Criss Angel isn't the problem then, is it? It's Banachek.
If it is in fact totally Banachek's fault, then sure. Dont think you got me just because you throw Banachek's name out there. If it is totally Banacheck's fault, then Banachek is crap too. But dont be stupid, its Angel's show, not Banacheck, Banachek is merely the consultant. But it probably is partly his fault.
Banachek's official title remains consultant (as far as I know), but his job description involves designing the entire show. As of season 2, Criss Angel is basically nothing more than the main character in a tv show written by a team led by Banachek.
I love Banachek's personal show. His idea of presenting mentalism as a Sherlock Holmesish extension of intuition is brilliant. I watched him not long ago and was totally impressed with how good he is at thinking on his feet and making people believe things that if they just used common sense they would realize can't be true. But, when it comes to Mindfreak, I can't say I enjoy what he has done with that show.
I am hoping that Jay Sankey will replace Banachek as the lead "consultant" of the show. I have no evidence that this is what will happen, but I've heard Banachek Edited about how much money hes lost on Mindfreak, so I'm hoping this is what is going on here. Banachek is brilliant at what he does, but, in my opinion he's not good at this tv stuff. I think Jay Sankey could make the show far more interesting.
