It is hard to believe, but somehow, Criss Angel: Mindfreak has lasted four seasons and counting.  Here is some of our previous coverage:


U.S. A&E Season One DVD Set



Umbrella Season Three DVD Set



Umbrella Halloween DVD




I liked the show at first and thought it was interesting, but it just became a little uneven as it went on and though he is a talented entertainer with some interesting abilities to support his act, one can only do so much with “look and see how I risk my life next to entertain you” before that wears a bit thin.  My fellow writer and I have said about as much as we could on the shows now and if that does not help you figure out whether you should get more involved, then just get the set(s) and decide for yourself.


The 1.33 X 1 image analog color videotape shoot is consistently good and clean, though it can be soft in places with flaws that occasionally include staircasing, aliasing, some video noise, video banding and cross color.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo has some location audio issues, but music and other items are added in post-production as usual.


Extras are the same on the first and third sets, while Season Two adds six featurettes and audio commentary by the star on two episodes and Season Four adds Additional Footage and a Behind The Scenes featurette.


I wonder how much longer this will go on.  We’ll soon find out.



As noted above, you can order this PAL DVD import set exclusively from Umbrella at:
