Aloha All,

Tonight we will take a break and catch Derren Brown's "The Experiments" with this edition titled "The Assassin".

Aloha All,

The Assassin seemed to be a remake/upgrade to "The Heist". While Derren makes a plausible case, I simply found the hypnosis aspect of the experiment unbelievable. It could not really be considered scientific but I am not sure he was trying to be. It looks a bit like he is losing his edge and is drifting more towards the Hollywood of it all. It passed a message that I found a bit disturbing regarding hypnosis which was highlighted by his demonstration that 4 out of 4 people would throw acid into the face of a stranger under hypnosis and likewise use a firearm to assassinate a public figure. I am wondering what hypnosis practitioners would think of this program.
