“You’re Back in the Room” is a new British comedy/reality show where contestants try to meet challenges despite being hampered by increasingly bizarre hypnotic suggestions.
Says the news blog “conversation.com”, “This program would have us believe a powerful hypnotist can make us do whatever he says and we are powerless to resist or even realise. This is inconsistent with over 200 years of evidence from the science and practice of hypnosis.”
Despite the show hypnotist’s insistence that hypnosis “is a form of mind control,” the facts show the opposite, and this article on conversation.com does a great job of exposing the truth.
The fact that hypnosis is not mind control, though, doesn’t make the show any less funny!
