Just curious, about why I am still reading all this negativity about Chris Angel and his Mindfreak tv series. I thought the point of being a entertainer is to ENTERTAIN. I will admit the majority of the people, I have spoken with, feel that a lot of his stunts are staged, but yet they still watch him every time he has a new episode...including me, and YOU! Also, with his bigger stunts, I don't know enough about those type of effects to know 100% that it is a set up. Personally, I watch all the different performers on television to see the close up and mentalism material. I really could care less about the huge stunts. Even with David Blain, the general public could really give two flying farts about his stunts. Another thing to think about, is this man (Chris Angel) gets freaking PAID!! I can't speak for the rest of you, but if A&E offered me or agreed to pay me a huge sum of money to continue a series I would jump all over it. And if I had to "stage" some effects to keep the general public happy and tuning in to the next episode, you better believe that "staging" is exactly what I would do. And I believe that the majority of you would do the same. The only people I feel can have a honest "beef" with Chris Angel is whoever has worked with him before. Other than that, this he had to do whatever he has to do to put food on his table. Personally, I feel his close up effects are great and his show is ENTERTAINING, and I think that is the point.
