Review of ABC's Primetime Live Show - "Who is John of God?", Broadcast on 2/10, hosted by John Quinones
Despite the fact that shows like this seem designed more for frequent advertising
breaks than the program contents, ABC seems to have taken a step forward here.
Rather than completely debunking the subject material present by their host,
John Quinones, the producers of the show seem to let the story tell itself.
It would have been helpful if they mentioned other well-known Brazilian psychic
healers, like Dr. Fritz, who has been scientifically studied during his trances
and found to be generating unusual 40 hertz brain-wave cycles. Also, the behavior
of the psychic surgeons like John of God is often stranger than depicted on
the program, including use of hammers, screwdrivers, and power tools. However,
it does not appear to cause any pain to the medical subjects who have sometimes
undergone deep spinal and brain surgery from these psychic doctors.
