What I liked

Interesting and thought provoking.

What I didn't like

The show would benefit from the host elaborating more and/or summing up following his demonstrations. A wrap-up at the end would be a good idea, too.

My overall impression

An entertaining expose of the methods so-called psychics and mediums employed “way back when” to convince others they had connections to the supernatural and to the deceased on “the other side”. It’s also a meditation on the susceptibility of individuals under certain circumstances and the inclinations of many to believe the things they wish to believe – regardless of evidence. Thought provoking.
