Here’s the episode, watch it while it is up:
My opinion is extremely positive. I agree that Dr. Phil was actually quite good. At times it seemed like even he was defending the seduction community to the crowd. I think there was more footage and that it was ‘cut’ and ’spinned’ in about as favorable of a light as the seduction community is going to get on such a show. The bumper with non-seduction guys bragging about lying to women was complete bullshit though.
The Mystery Method guys did a good job. The Don was a rock star. I didn’t know who he was before this show but I definitely know who he is now.
Savoy was sharp and quick but I agree with Dr. Phil (gasp!!!) that some of his answers even lost me. I’m not a fan of him saying that The Mystery Method is not a part of the seduction community. I don’t think he was truthful and I don’t think his denial was even necessary.
Having instructors pretend to be students was to be expected. I would probably have done the same. If Ross wanted to call them on something why didn’t he call them on that?
As for Ross Jeffries, he was typical Ross Jeffries. He was on to try to portray The Mystery Method as dishonest, creepy and demeaning toward women but when it was all said and done it sure seemed like he was the one defending himself.
I think Ross may have been prodded to go on the show in attack mode but when Dr. Phil gave him the opportunity to explain his theories all he wanted to do is attack The Mystery Method. When he did talk about his NLP teachings he did a poor job selling himself.
It’s a toss-up on who will benefit the most from being on the show. I think The Mystery Method guys obviously came off as less creepy and more likeable to women. Ironically the fact that Ross came off as “creepy”, combative and sleazy (in regards to his marketing at least) will get more women talking and thus more guys listening and checking him and his products out. Based on search engine traffic it is no question that more people were looking for info on Ross than The Mystery Method after the show aired.
Overall it was fun, I don’t think any real “secrets” of the seduction community were exposed and my blog traffic more than doubled.
The Mystery Method company is now called “Love Systems“. Their introductory product for people new to their teachings is their Magic Bullets ebook while their Love Systems Routines Manual Vol 2 is their newest product.
