Yeah, I watched this.
I couldn't help think that the guy at the centre of the show somehow didn't seem to be too shocked and was acting, but then again, maybe that is just him and the way he would react.

But apart from that, I thought it was a fairly good premise for a TV show, not mind-blowingly good mind you.

However, a couple of things came to mind.
Is it possible for someone like Derren Brown to implant suggestion into the viewers mind? The head shot of him explaining everything was a bit odd and his facial expression was exaggerated when he said certain words.

Also, is it beyond the realms of possibility that the whole show was a psy-op, a pre-programming for a future event if you will.

Nah, probably just a TV show. :peep:

Hey G3n.

The link you posted is a 15 minute Youtube video. The first part on Channel 4 is 1 hour.?

I have recorded part 1 and will not watch until next week when part 2 is broadcast. :cheers:

Looks interesting at least.

This was excellent - thanks for posting as I don't receive this series on TV where I live.

Please post the next episode when it becomes available.


Tonight on Discovery Channel there is a show on running an experiment to see if there could "really" be a manchurian candidate. They are going to attempt to hypnotize a regular "law abiding" citizen to see if they can make that person act outside of there will - to see if that person could be worked like a puppet to kill someone.

Personally, I already very much believe this is possible (such as the Sirhan Sirhan case), the show should be interesting though.

The same guy did a show on this exact theme. He hypnotised someone to assassinate a celebrity (Stephen Fry) whilst they were on stage. Embedding is disabled by request on this vid, but here's a link. Shitload of commercials though.

I thought it was bad acting personally.

I mean, FFS, the special effects were shit. If they had filled the skies with dust clouds, I might have been impressed. A few poorly placed explosions just didn't cut it for me.
