Fenomen with Uri Geller

March 29, 2011

The concept has been repeated in other countries like the US, Germany and Netherlands and now it’s come to Sweden. Unfortunately.

Uri Geller wants to find the next Swedish mentalist in Fenomen which is broadcast on Kanal 5. It’s absolute NONSENSE. It’s fake and I hope people can see it.

I happened to be sitting in the audience for the first live show, making sure I was clapping when supposed to, looking happy and skeptic.

The reliability of the tricks, magic or whatever it was can really be questioned. One of the contestants had been injured earlier in the rehearsal. So it’s all rehearsed. It doesn’t fall in to them naturally.

They use celebrities to help with the tricks, which all seemed to be following instuctions and playing into the act. If they had just picked random people from the audience, that would’ve been something.

I had never heard about this Uri Geller before but he’s a sucker for attention, saying he was going to walk up and down the bleachers to sign his autograph or if anyone wanted to take a picture with him. Didn’t see many who gave him much importance when he actually did it.

He does seem to be a cuckoo head claiming he’s got supernatural powers. He asked if people had brought their broken watches and appliances with them and a few had. With his and everybody’s mental power these broken items were going to be fixed and work again. Even people at home were asked to get their stuff to the TV set.

My friend had a watch with her and guess what? It didn’t start to work. It simply needs a battery change, I’m sure. And the people in front of us, their watch didn’t start working either.

All right, this might sound contradictory, but I do believe supernatural powers are possible. Telepathy between twins. Female intiution.

I just don’t believe in Uri Geller and this show. I might have to watch the other episodes to have a good laugh or who knows, I might change my mind.

    When I first saw the commercial for this show, I thought to myself that it had to be a (very bad) joke. Sadly, it wasn’t. I shake my head in disappointment at Swedish television.
