Derren Brown - Apocalypse

(85 Posts)

Seen a couple of trailers for this and it makes my tummy churn with a kind of horrible fascination. Is it acceptable to do this to a person do we think? I know they have signed up at some degree at some point, but surely it could seriously, seriously fuck you up?? Here is the trailer

Awful

What if he decides to end his life

Run in and stop the whole thing

griphook Fri 26-Oct-12 21:43:04

It's not very good is it

griphook: my DH said exactly the same thing as I was reading your post. I hate this. Derren Brown is not a messiah. This is TV bullshit. The guy is acting. He may be suggestible and scared but he's also acting up.

Am watching now. Its quite freaky.

I agree, this is rubbish. Dh and I are both laughing - it looks so amateur.

TheCountessOlenska Fri 26-Oct-12 21:46:39

Yeah actually our hero is totally acting (not very well) - I don't buy his reactions at all!

Hmm think I'd be better off re-watching 28 Days Later grin

Poor Steve. Zombies!

There is no-way that guy thinks this is real, my money is on him being a paid actor.

TheCountessOlenska Fri 26-Oct-12 21:47:45

He needs to pack his OFRS!

griphook Fri 26-Oct-12 21:48:32

Maybe there will be a twist at the end. I saw parts of one where the audience controlled a mans life and twist was he got knocked down.

Maybe something g interesting will happen

<whispers> I like Derren Brown.

Dh contribution - "is it me or is ferret brown a bit of a cunt"

I think he had a point with this one. Surely that guy has to have signed up for something. It is going to cause such damage.

Their bands have changed colours in the ambulance and are now white...

PrincessSymbian Fri 26-Oct-12 21:54:01

DeeMinoc- join me in the we like Derren Brown corner, there's strength in numbers!

PrincessSymbian Fri 26-Oct-12 21:54:46

Well spotted stripy!

twofalls Fri 26-Oct-12 21:56:04

Derren. Obviously. Not ferret. But quite apt. grin

Rollergirl1 Fri 26-Oct-12 21:57:50

Do you think Derren has been watching too much Walking Dead, Falling Skies, etc?

Great tip, they have an ACTUAL storry-line.

LtEveDallas Fri 26-Oct-12 21:58:20

This is bollocks. They are all shite actors. Pile of poo.

Methinks Derren is having us on.

StripyShoes Fri 26-Oct-12 21:58:40

Also, paper poster now in plastic.

Wipe Out is more scary

PrincessSymbian Fri 26-Oct-12 21:59:33

I actually thought you'd typed that deliberately two! The end, no one mentioned two parts, that sucks!

MrsjREwing Fri 26-Oct-12 22:00:09

Now we have to watch next week.
