I just watched the new episode of Mindfreak and I thought today I want to be the person that makes a post about right after they aired the episode. I thought it was quite boring and a little nasty. Wait, a lot nasty.

I still want him to do the little tricks on the streets. That's the whole reason I watch. It's a lot more entertaining than the stunts. Ecspecially because he shows the climax of the final stunt at the beggining of the show.

This episode was just one big stunt and it was boring. This new season seems to be the worst yet.

I started to watch Mind Control and finally I get a mentalist/magician that doesn't irritate me.

Anyways, the point of this episode of Mindfreak I think was to prove that he is better than Houdini. CRISS WILL ANEVER BE BETTER THAN HOUDINI. It's just a competition to him. It irritates me that people are being convinced that he is better than Houdini.


Well what does everyone else think of the episode?

Actually, Houdini wasn't too bad with a camera. But if I remember correctly, he used that mainly for movies.

i thought it was one of the more interesting episodes lately. I liked that they showed the whole process. But, overall, it was pretty boring and uneventful. I just thought it was kind of interesting when they showed what he did to make it work. I
I'm just wondering what happend to that whole, jay sankey 40 trick deal for the new season. Unless they plan on doing another "sleight of hand" episode i don't think they're going to get them in.

He said Houdini took four hours to escape from a jail cell? That's not correct. Houdini may have used picks and mirrors for some of them, but he was a lot more clever then that. He often used keys to escape. Either home made keys, or I believe he even used the actual keys from time to time.

you took the words out of my keyboard...


I thought the eppisode sucked, if I'm gonna see a naked magician on TV escaping a Jail cell, I want it to be Houdini...

yeah I was like, "wait, that's it, theres no good part? that sucked!"

I vote it as the worst eppisode of Mindfreak yet...



btw, I absolutely ahte just about every stunt he's done so far, and he just repeats things(it's boring)

Four hours isn't enough for her. I'd hope for 10. :D

The last two MindFreak episodes have been escapes only and they were the worst yet. Everyone got to watch a naked Criss Angel pick locks for 30 minutes. Boring.

Oh? He has already done the last three seasons. He should know better than anyone, even though he is very bad at it.

Correct me if I am wrong but out of all th ebook sI have read on houdini I hav enever read that it took him 4 hours to get ou tof a cell. And If I recall corectly at one of his jail escapes it took him 30 minutes and he rearranged all the prisoners in that unit.

Yeah, it didn't take him four hours. On many of them, he was out quite quickly. That episode contained a lot of incorrect information.
