Great show! The fact that the human brain can do what it does is enough proof that something random and unintelligent did not happen. I wonder what kind of people they choose though, sometimes I caught on immediately and everyone else was stumped. Are people really that dumb and unaware? The answer, sadly, is probably yes.

Even though an average (human) adult brain weighs only 3 lbs. and barely generates more than 12 watts of power, it's certainly a mighty complex mass of "grey matter" that can readily store and retrieve a million bits of information and help an average person to perform all sorts of tasks, some surprisingly complicated, some not.

This 2-disc set contains 11, 25-minute episodes from the best of TV's "Brain Games" in its 2nd season of 2013.

Set in Las Vegas, Nevada - This is a very slick production that plays "perception/memory" games with its audience in order to find out if the viewer is, indeed, really paying attention (which, in most cases, we aren't).

For the most part - I found Brain Games to be actually quite entertaining - But, when trying to get its point across - This show did, sometimes, resort to a fair amount of superfluous "hocus-pocus" type stuff.

Each episode has been shortened to about 22 minutes, and they each contain little games to help illustrate the psychological principles. The epitome of edu-tainment.
