Is anyone else watching this show? For the most part the acts are crap. But they just had a moment where this guy claimed he was possessed by a spirit and was able to tell the audience what was in a box because of it.

Chris Angel got angry and held up an envelope. He told the guy that he would give him one-million-dollars of his own money if his "spirit" could tell Chris what was in the envelope. The douche said the "energy wasn't right." They both started shouting and it looks like they almost came to blows.

Unlike that Uri fag, Chris knows it's all bullshit and I loved that he called the douche out on it.

Yeah, I saw that. Most of the acts are either shitty or not acted out good. I know how some of the stuff is done and the performers do an awful job at selling the act.

I'm glad Criss Angel outed that guy; some honest TV for once.

Uri doesn't believe that shit either. but his whole livelihood is built on making people people so like any good huckster he plays the role.

I watched this the first night it was on. It sucked ass. Ross the Intern needs to come down with the HIV and die. He could be one of the most annoying people in our world. Last night I came across it while flipping through the channels and saw Trishelle as one of the 'celebs' in the crowd. As a network if you have a show where your celeb panel has an F list reality TV star whos 15 minutes of fame consist of an almost on air abortion, you need to hire a new creative team.
Maybe its just me but Criss Angel really annoys me. He just comes across with this 'im better then you' attitude.

Neither. Criss Angel is the first person to tell you it's all tricks and an act. He gets off on you knowing it's just a trick and still fooling you anyway.

See, my whole thing was, how bout I walk up to Criss Angel in the street and be like "Hey Criss, walk across that body of water(whatever it may be)" or "Float". He would give ME some shit like, "Uhhhhh, I'm not feeling it right now", or the same kind of douchey response that guy gave him. Criss Angel is just as big of a queen as that other guy.

Exactly, not that i have anything against Chris, i like Mind Freak, but what he did to that guy on stage he could have easily done to any of the other "mentalists."
I don't know, but the whole act seemed staged to me. Maybe it was to create drama and try to get more people to watch the show.

Except I've read about people doing just that and him saying "I'm not set up for that" or some shit like that. And if you listened to the way he critiqued the other contestants he did mention repeatedly how it was tricks and how he's seen other versions of that trick. He even got a couple of contestants to say something like "of course it's a trick."

During his act is he going to say it's tricks? No, not usually. But that's part of the act. Once the act is over he becomes a real person again.

What pisses him off about about the douche and other psychics is that they try to sell that it's real. All the time. In interviews, on the street, etc. They never leave the act behind. It's bullshit; they know it and wont admit it.

The confrontation on the show was great because the act was over, it was time to come clean, and the guy started spouting shit about "energy" and kept shaking and huffing and puffing like it was real. It was infuriating for me as someone watching it and I almost cheered out loud when Angel called him on his bullshit.

No he wouldn't.
Criss said a bunch of times that he doesn't have any powers and that it's all fake.
That's why he outed that guy on TV. Before the show began, he said (I forgot where) that if any of the contestants claim that they have special powers, he will confront them live on the show; and he did just that.

I think you have Cris Angel mixed up with Penn & Teller.

Penn & Teller have been doing that for 25 years.

Yeah, them too.

As someone already said in this thread, Angel said in the first episode of the series that he would call out anyone who tried to claim what they were doing was "real." I don't think you can get more clear than that.
