Just discovered a really cool program that I think will

interest many HTF readers....

 

The show is called BRAIN GAMES

 

It's currently airing on National Geographic Channel

 

It's all about how the brain is focusing upon everything

that is happening around you.  This is the first television

program, that I am aware of,  where the viewer becomes

a participant of the show.

 

Each week a newly themed episode manipulates the

viewer's mind, challenging he or she to figuring out various

optical illusions, magic tricks and moments of decision making

whose outcome may blow you away.

 

....yeah, it sounds as if I am promoting this like a commercial,

but I am really enjoying this show and often find myself absolutely

amazed by how much it plays with my mind.

 

I had hoped that others in this television forum had discovered 

this little gem and would be discussing it.  I am hoping to turn 

some of you on to BRAIN GAMES and see what you think of it.

 

Don't just watch one episode as some themes tend to resonate

more with viewers than others.  In other words, chances are if

you don't like one episode you may like the next.  

 

Let me know what you think.

Oh, I love this show. I have been fascinated with the our perceptual systems and the way the brain works for some time. It's fascinating stuff and some of it fits in with the course I teach that has a strong focus on visual aesthetics for video and film production. That and it is just cool.

Glad to see a fellow fan here.

 

Seen five episodes today.  That is what my Tivo

automatically recorded.

 

Wonder how much material there is for this show

to keep running.  I would think sooner or later there

isn't going to be anything left to challenge us with...

 

...we shall see.
