Really thought provoking as usual and the premise of the show was whether Derren could secretly condition someone who had strong anti illegal immigrant feeling to lay down their life for an illegal immigrant.


I didn't know about this one. The other one he did (The Push?) was fascinating. Bit sick though, tricking unwitting people to murder. :ooer: Obviously there were no real murders but they didn't know that. You'd imagine that would cause a person some serious psychological damage...


Yeah, it was along similar lines to the Push. Real heart in your mouth moments.

There was a notice at the beginning of the show that the participant had a full psych evaluation before and after the experience. I can imagine the premium for the liability insurance for the show must have cost a fortune!


I'll definitely watch this.

Just watched this. Really enjoyed it but the cynic in me thinks it was faked.
Staging a mock execution is a form of torture (I assume is illegal?) so not sure how Deren Brown gets away with doing it for entertainment purposes. :dunno:

Not sure if it’s been mentioned already but Mr Mercedes is excellent too...


In episode 1, Luke is in the treehouse drawing pictures, and on the floor beside the paper is an ET lunchbox. ET, starred Henry Thomas who is playing the younger version of the dad in this show. :smilin: I thought it was a nice reference.

Sheridan Smith and Kelly Brook have both put weight on.

Don't think most men would mind too much with Kelly Brook.

Sheridan Smith though, she's an absolute train wreck, reminds me of some of the women on forums, run away!

Really liking Killing Eve. Classy without being pretentious and some proper laugh out loud moments. Really good story too.

Harry was dumb, the waitress was gorgeous, in love with him, and far less annoying than Nola.
