That’s Incredible! …or is it?

November 28, 2010

I took everything on That’s Incredible! as the wholesale truth as a kid.  One such episode that amazed me featured James Hydrick (a.k.a. Sum Chai).  His persona is based on what I can describe as a martial artist crossed with a telekinetic monk.  He demonstrated his telekinesis in the show (link below).

To the show’s credit, one of the hosts attempts to debunk Hydrick.  I doubt though if the producers would approve of that.  Hydrick’s supposed powers failed him in another television show in which James Randi exposed him (link below).

I still prefer Ripley’s Believe It or Not over That’s Incredible.  The former’s title begs viewers to think for themselves albeit with a little too much subtlety.
