Has anyone ever watched his show? I just can't believe the stunbts he pulls. Like last night's show showed him getting ran over by a steam roller and actually had to be taken care of by paramedics because he went into shock! Then he did a stunt done by Houdini in a jail cell. Houdini is his insopitration and idol. DO you wath Criss angel? Do you think he he is a fake or do you think he actually can perform the stunts and bear the consequences for real? Are his stunts mind over matter or is he some kind of freak of nature for real?

I love Cris Angel. I love to watch his stunts. I think they are real. I was watching a show the other night and he did a stunt and then showed us how he did it. It was great.

I particularly love when he teaches the viewers a trick at the end of the show. Read my response below. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I love his show. And I love his music. I too find him fascinating, I don't even care how he does his stunts I just love watching them.

is it not because of the modern day technology that this man, the MODERN HOUDINI, Chriss Angel.. is doing all the crazy stuff? .. I mean, .. this ANGEL is a wonderful magician.. but, all the publicity he is getting is not enough. . the videos and shows that this Angel is doing is giving "fillers" to the tv channels. .. He deserves more than that. Why not he plan a big stunt .. like HOUDINI.. and, sell out the TV RIGHTS. he can make millions, as also make a good name, rather than just a street-magician.

I've caught bits and pieces of his show but never really watched it all the way through - personally I think he's fake. There could never be another Houdini and I think Criss is just a lot of show and no real 'talent'.

i haven't watched his show in awhile as i don't have cable anymore, but i used to watch it here and there. sometimes it's hard to watch, you don't want to see something bad happen ya know? but he's very fascinating, it's just amazing sometimes the stunts he pulls.

I love Mind Freak!! I have learned some of his slight of hand tricks and showed them to many others as well. At my wifes restaraunt one night I showed my kids how to make a salt shaker dissapear. There were a gorup of college students sitting a few tables from me. They watched and learned the trick. As they left the walked to my table and thanked me for the magic lesson and said they'd be showing this to others. HAHA! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDAP BOB !!~

Watching his show sure seems to push those boundaries for me. I mean, I understand that it's all the work of an illusionist, but Criss Angel really makes it look real. Its funny because there are times when he does some smaller tricks and then shows you right on his show how to do it. As far as pushing the envelope, he's got to be the best out there right now. Of course, knowing its an illusion does not diminish the amazing ability it takes to me. I think he's amazing and will continue to watch his show.

I've never really been into mindfreak or Criss Angel but I've been watching Phenomenon and I just find him to be really kind of Cocky in personality and I don't like that. He's never really insanely impressed me before and his attitude towards these other magicians of sort on this show just makes me dislike him a lot.
