Uri Geller comes to NBC with a new show the Phenomenon

NBC has announced that Uri Geller and Chriss Angel (Mindfreak) will be appearing in a new TV reality show called “Phenomenon” (working title) this fall.


The show’s format was bought from Israeli Keshet Broadcasting. The original show in Israel’s channel 2 was called “The Successor” and it was a great hit in Israel’s prime time. The format is somewhat similar to the popular American Idol format where contestants (mentalists – stage magicians specializing in mind tricks) perform acts of seemingly paranormal ability, like telepathy etc. One contestants leaves the show each week, selected by Geller.

Geller and Angel will assist the Phenomenon contestants with their insight. The ultimate winner from the 10 participants will be selected by home viewers.

Phenomenon is a co-production of Granada America, Keshet Broadcasting, and Kuperman Productions in association with SevenOne International, which controls the worldwide rights to the show’s format.

  1. I have a new website now!!

  2. Hi Bob,

    I am sensing your disparity; to mostly some extent; give it some time though. Even though it will give GENUINE ‘artists’ a bad name and rep, we need to look carefully here.

    I just joined mynbc.com and I will be continuing my blogs there; you can find me as MrZeta there:

    Go to Phenomenon section; I will be in there.

    This may be my next to the last post here.

    If anyone is seriously interested in psychic phenomenon and/or pyramidology, you can join my yahoo group at orionproject2001; good luck!

    MrZ

  3. Oh man this show is bad. watched 10/31. bad acting by all the
    talent and the “audience”. Dumb tricks that where really easy to
    see set up and misleading devices. If this show lasts i’ll
    be amazed!! LOL stupid and waste of airtime.

  4. Hello,

    The results of the first nites’ events; not amazing, not even nearly what I expected. I wont say it was a bunch of parlor tricks as that would be belittling.

    These people are talented in what they do; they are not con artists but genuine people with great gifts of stage presence and magic; yep – pure magic.

    Now dont get me wrong; some people are very gifted with numbers as shown by the last contestant; and the fella with the nailgun; well he has good hearing; if I did that trick I’d be in ER.

    The trap fella; well let me see; what if used my trap instead of his; fake trap or not, it was not believeable; and yet again some people dont have pain persistance (I am glad I still have my digits attached!!).

    IE – as the show stated, DONT DO THESE TRICKS; THESE ARE PROFESSIONALS.

    As for the ‘mental aspect’ of the show’s contestants I give it a big fat ZERO.

    And BTW, the anser my friend is blowing in the wind (that’s just a guess; I got a 50/50 chance of being right!!).

    Better luck next time folks; you all fail as far as the show’s promotion goes.

    I wanna see that fella with the ring trick!!

    If you are inclined, anyone feel free to drop me a line; you ‘may’ be invited to my own little project, and that is as real as it will ever get, as this is a project that has been in development for over 20 years, the most of which I wasnt even aware of (!), but am now.

    MrZ

  5. LOL – Sri one more thingy! At the end of Randi’s blog (on poor Uri lol!) regarding ‘dowsing’.

    I live in Maine; and there is (or was) a famous dowser up here who not only looked for water, but anything I think. Supposedly you can use maps too to get a general area.

    I have tried dowsing a few times; I think anyone can develop a talent for it; dowsing is real as far as I am concerned, and uses heightened awareness within us!

    MrZ

  6. Here are a few more tidbits (watch this page; maybe I make a Blog here after the shows (!); maybe not; anyway I do need to get my website going I can see that.

    I am an electronics specialist with several years education/experience; I am not good at what I do; I am an expert.

    I also happen to have delved in the many mysteries of the ‘para-normal’; I have studied Uri’s work and that of many others; I will drop a line here next time maybe my site will be up.

    Anyway I am also working of some of my own theories regarding inter-dimensional communications; my work is considered highly ‘exotic’ but state of the art.

    Funny thing is, after being a skeptic in this field for well over 20 years, my own spiritual attunements have opened up what could be a spiritual communications link inside of me; IE; it is entirely possible I am ‘also’ being directed by one or more highly intelligent beings in my work; I find this very intrigueing (and yes, fascinating); however the possibility of this alone is what keeps me going; there is no way I could have thought of some of my project ideas by myself; if you saw one of my contraptions you would know what I mean!

    The first project had to stop almost a year ago because of it’s sophistication, and I had no further guidance. I have branched off into a slightly different area in my work, and feel that at some point all of the projects will come together to reveal what I cann the first inter-dimensional ‘real-time’ communications device; I have no doubt from the abstract ideas I have recieved that I am being led in it’s design!

    Mentalists, look out (!); I, MrZeta, have you all beat (!) (maybe someday !!).

    And finally take a look at this:

    http://www.randi.org/encyclopedia/Geller,%20Uri.html

    Dont look at this too harshly; I am sure there are some of us out there who at least know what clairvoyance and clairaudience is; too bad Randi doesnt (I dont think he has those abilities!).

    I got an email from him once (Randi that is); I am gonna win that mil ‘fore anyone else gets it !

    Art Bell is another to listen to; I belong to TAPS; a nice group with nice people.

    The fact is people, many truthes about who we are have been hidden from us, and mislead us, unless we seek to talk with our inner selves, and let the destiny flow.

    LOL the string I had to sign below was: MRT !!!

    MrZ

  7. This show hopes to be another ‘joke’ after I watched one of the contestants video making a ring float between his fingers; another trickster has found a way to amaze people and take all their gambling money away LMAO.

    Sorry to be so sarcastic about this but I have a bad feeling about it; there may be one genuine person out of the 5 or 10 that show; and even those will tend towards the Mr Edward’s fashion.

    I will watch this show with great intent. I do have great respect for Uri; he has been around and talked with some of the greatest people in the world that deal with ancient mystical practices; perhaps Andrijah (sp?) may ring a bell with someone.

    I hope to be in touch with Uri on this one!!

    BTW Uri, thank you for a great effort here; let’s just not forget we do not want to be ‘amazed’; we want to be intrigued.

    MrZ
