Derren Brown: The Gameshow

People who know me fairly well will know that I am a pretty big fan of derren brown and his TV series. Tonight brings his latest part of his series ‘The Experiments’ where he will be testing some ideas similar to Phillip Zimbardo’s Stanford Experiment. Derren will play the role of a game show host and will test whether we have the capacity for evil and whether group mentality affects our morals and our sense of right and wrong. An interesting watch for me anyways but I will be watching with this module in mind tonight and will keep a pen and paper near by. A very interesting look at power and spectacle. expect an update to this post later on but for now here is a trailer.

also additional personal note, I applied for this series, maybe I should be a little glad i didn’t get accepted.
