Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (6 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This zany, unpredictable series features players who willingly give up complete control of themselves, and risk embarrassment, in hopes of winning money. Resident hypnotist Keith Barry sets them up for each scenario in a way that will guarantee awkwardness or even chaos. However, it's the individual participants' unexpected behaviors while hypnotized that create lots of the humor. But while some viewers may believe that the players aren't aware of what they are doing, skeptics will find little to change their minds about the validity of Barry's talents. Nonetheless, Hypnotize Me is entertaining, if not believable, for everyone.
