Drowned Alive? Yeah right....
Tuesday, May 09, 2006
    David Blaine has broken his contract with America. Mr. Blaine promised either he'd hold his breath longer than any other human ever, or we'd see a real life drowning on prime time TV.

    This was his deal... and he failed to deliver.

    The "magician" had a two-hour spectacular on ABC Monday night. I watched. I must admit, I was impressed with the spectacle - and while holding your breath for over 7 minutes is really something, this event turned into nothing more than performance art.

    Intermingled with the shots of a water-magnified Blaine in the human aquarium, we were treated to some of the least impressive/believable "street magic" one could imagine.

    We were to believe Mr. Blaine pulled out a young woman's teeth and then blew them back in place?? Then there was a "trick" (I assume it was supposed to be a trick) involving two comely women at a Las Vegas casino. Mr. Blaine takes the women to a roulette wheel and his mere presence leads to the women winning $3,200.

    One wonders if Monday's failure will lead to Mr. Blaine "disappearing" from network TV forever.

    Did you guys watch? What did you think?
