    Ok. Can anyone say Chris Angel rip off but without any of the really cool stunts?

    For the most part, you get the feeling that they tried the same trick 100 times and only showed us the one or two times it actually worked.

    The stunts (or whatever they're called) Brown performs, especially on tough, cynical New Yorkers, are hilarious and astounding.
  3. Mr. Brown has bought into something real: our childlike joy in being fooled.
