For starters, I will say that if you are a NEW fan who just discovered Criss Angel, then do not start with this season. The only reason for anyone to start with Season 4 would be if you actually watched every episode when A&E aired it, and you fell in love with it. If that be the case, then there's no way to go but back in time. If you haven't started out this way, go back to Season 1 and start chronologically from there.
I was going to write this review after re-reviewing the DVD, but I've seen every episode, plus the extra features. I was prompted by my inner voice to write this now, so here I am.
Season 4 has enough excitement for you if you want a thrill or two. The formula for Mindfreak hasn't changed much, but something - or should I say, someone - HAS changed, and that's the star of the show. While watching the episodes of Season 4 every week they aired, I was somewhat disconcerted by a seemingly lacking of something missing. What was missing was the Criss Angel I became interested in with Season 1 and 2, and who seemed to still be present in Season 3, although the change was already in effect by that time.
So, here are my some of my criticisms:
1. I'm lucky I have my eyesight still. With all the bling flashing in unison, I'm surprised the retinas of my eyes haven't had a hole burned through them. I said it before, but it's worth repeating: I want to see what the hands are doing.Read more ›
This one is more of the same but with even more hype added (if that is possible). It seems that most major tricks are said to involve the risk of serious injury or death. In reality you know the performer is quite safe and it is all carefully staged. So, being told over and over by people connected with the show how dangerous it is and how worried they are gets REALLY repetitive and boring after the 100th time.
Also, I saw Criss perform live in Las Vegas and his skills are not nearly as impressive as portrayed on the show. It made me realise how much editing and careful camera angles go into the show.
If you are a die hard fan then buy this. But, if you are not, then you can safely give this a miss.
