Criss Angel BeLIEve was a television show that aired on Spike TV in 2013 starring renowned magician and illusionist Criss Angel. The show featured Angel performing his signature brand of mind-bending magic and illusions, and also gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at how some of his most incredible stunts were put together.

Each episode of Criss Angel BeLIEve opened with a dramatic introduction narrated by Angel himself, who set the tone for the hour of mind-blowing magic that lay ahead. The show then cut to Angel performing an elaborate stunt, such as levitating high above a crowded street, walking through a wall of flames, or making a real-life motorcycle disappear. Along the way, Angel would talk to the camera and explain some of the secrets behind his illusions, revealing the hard work and dedication that went into making his stunts seem truly impossible.

Interspersed with Angel's performances were segments in which he worked with his team of collaborators, whom he affectionately referred to as his 'crew'. These segments gave viewers an up-close look at how some of Angel's most complex stunts were put together, from conceiving the initial idea to building the sets, gathering props, and rehearsing the choreography. It was fascinating to see the amount of detail that went into each performance, and how much trust Angel had in his team to help him achieve the seemingly impossible.

Throughout the series, Angel also returned to his hometown of Long Island, New York, to perform a series of intimate shows in front of small audiences. These shows were a departure from his grander Las Vegas productions and allowed him to showcase his skills in a more intimate setting, performing card tricks and sleight of hand that left his audience members completely dumbfounded. It was a reminder that, no matter how elaborate his stunts became, Angel was still at heart a master of close-up magic.

Perhaps the most striking aspect of Criss Angel BeLIEve was the way in which it played with audience expectations. Time and time again, Angel would set up a seemingly straightforward stunt, only to subvert it in some unexpected way. For example, during one episode, he appeared to levitate high above a street while a crowd looked on in amazement. But as he descended to the ground, it became clear that he had actually been suspended on invisible wires, which he then revealed to the bewildered crowd. Similarly, during another episode, he appeared to make a car disappear in a puff of smoke, only to reveal that the car was actually hidden behind a curtain, and that the 'smoke' was just a vaporizer. These twists and turns kept viewers on the edge of their seats and demonstrated Angel's skill at manipulating audience perceptions.

Overall, Criss Angel BeLIEve was an exciting and entertaining show that showcased one of the world's most talented magicians and illusionists at the height of his powers. The show combined mind-bending stunts with behind-the-scenes looks at how they were put together, making for an engaging mix of entertainment and education. While the show is no longer on the air, it remains a testament to the power of magic and illusion as forms of entertainment that can challenge our perceptions and leave us breathless.

Criss Angel BeLIEve is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (11 episodes). The series first aired on October 8, 2013.
