how could it not work on the net but work on TV? they are the same thing just shown a different way. if you noticed when said focus on the screen and a subliminal message would flash of a person tied to a chair, its all mind games.



No he means that the 1 minute clip was meant only to be displayed at High-res. Which you get from a HDTV. I dunno if that is true or not though.

I didn't watch this shit but I have been glued to my seat for the last 4 hours, but it's like that every night.

I recorded it so I can get stuck whenever. I found one on youtube and after 2 attempts, im feeling how I felt yesterday. Just not stuck yet.

Use part 8 in the link to release yourselves if you can be bothered to keep playing it over and over.

Thats a shame. It was a surreal experience, one that better be repeated as I loved it.

Unless he actually won the lotto to prove himself, I don't give a fuck. At all. His body language during the draw was hardly convincing anyway.


Completely agree. If he can win it, then why hasn't he. Also, the screen freezing could work, because when the lottery numbers are being read out, he hardly moves at all.

With regards to the one about not being able to stand up, I can't even bring myself to watch it. I'm a pussy when it comes to someone else controlling my mind, freaks the shit outa me.

Did anyone watch tonight's episode of control the nation? It was about remote viewing. And how people mimic each other through sub-conscious view, or can see what other people are doing through mind.

The control the nation task this week was; He chose a random person and gave her a canvas. He got the women to randomly paint a simple design on it in her home out of sight, so no one can possibly see what it is. She then had to cover it in news paper so it isn't visible, then bring it in to the London science museum. He then got her in a pitch black box like chamber and blindfolded. He then got a crowd of people to draw what it is they think is she drew.
He also told us to draw a few simple drawings. I drew a load of random shapes and one of them, i think was the second one i drew was concentric circles with some random block arch shapes on it.
The canvas was revealed and it was 3 concentric circles with like small blocks missing from it. All the drawings were counted and the most popular were picked the second most drawn image was stone henge and he first was concentric circles XD.png
And he asked her a few questions and she said it was inspired by stone henge... And guess what... this was filmed a week ago and they planted a little image of circles on all the main TODAY's newspapers, i read the Metro this morning XD.png

Damn those Subliminals!

My wife drew circles. I got a house and circles. I really am surprised at this guy. When that girl was in the location, I figured she would be in the village of stonehenge (Havent been there myself) or somewhere near it. Those ads, I noticed it, and thought nothing of it.

He's a tricky bastard, can't wait for the next one on Friday where he's trying to beat a casino. Not sure how it's going to happen because he's banned from most casinos, I remember him saying it on one of his earlier series' (everythings on 4od, recommended).

Hes probably said to the casino he wont take thir money, or hes found a right idiot.

It'll be some kind of illusion, not sure in which way though but all shall be revealed.

Is it bad that I drew a Dinosaur...
DuPz0r
yes.

What a end. Failing at a trick. I done better than him. I predicted that that guy from the "Real Hustle" would be on it. I expected Brown to do a speech in a hour, but hes not going to.
Zacko
Ha! What an ending, can only imagine the amount of bad press he'll get from this... kinda glad that dude didn't win the money tbh, he seemed fairly well off anyway.
Sheep
I was suprised he failed, if that hadnt have been live they probably wouldnt have shown it

I had to level my Derren Brown faith-o-meter. I watched "the heist". Very good.
DuPz0r
Damn i missed it. So he lost that guys money? haha, it shows that maybe not all of his tricks are fixed. It gives you that feeling that what he does it genuine. Maybe he did it on purpose to give people that hope that he is genuine and he made a mistake this time...

He missed out by one, cant see how he can fake that. Luckily, the bloke whos money he stole has been offered it back by C4. If you want to watch it, its on channel 4s site.

The lottery isnt BBC run, its owned by a separate company. I cant see it being fake as he once predicted what horses wouldm win 8 times in a row. Besides, how the hell can you fix the lottery?
He readily admitted in the same show that he had done the same thing with scores of other people and only kept watching the one who happened to be successful. Similarly, his Russian roulette game had 6 empty chambers in the gun.

He has said before he has no magical powers, in fact he says it at the start of every show. I wish people would stop pretending he does, affording "faith" in him, pretending his ideas are anything but soft science. I doubt he ever would.

I don't have a clue how he does it, but then again he is in between David Blaine and Criss Angel - not that really sceptic and daredevil-ish, but getting there.

Derrern is doing some 3D thing on C4. I hope this isnt the future of telly.
