Zak's aggressive approach to stir up emotional energy is quite successful at times.
Some of the episodes have some hard proof of paranormal activity - I find them very interesting, but it's my field of passion/study also.
They also give you the history behind things and get a background... just love it and can't wait for more!!! :)
"Ghost Adventures" is a fun show...even if you don't believe, simply because of Zak Bagans and his crew. If I were going to make a B-movie about ghost hunting I would most likely pick someone just like the former wedding DJ to star.
Bagans simply doesn't care that he comes off goofy or corny at times when he's trying to "provoke" some spirits. You can't help but get caught up in the action, and even though I don't believe...watching Bagans and his crew do their thing really makes me want to believe. And I think that's where "Ghost Adventures" succeeds and similar shows fail.
The better known "Ghost Hunters" is basically the same show every week, and it seems that more often than not, you end us wasting an hour watching those guys wander through dark hallways with little to no payoff at all.
Zak and his crew seem to capture quite a bit more ghost action on their show. And even if they don't, you still get to enjoy Bagans and his over the top hunting techniques.
Another aspect of the show that I really enjoy over similar programs is that any "evidence" captured on either film or audio recordings is played during the course of the "investigation". Meaning that if they catch something on film or catch a voice on one of their recorders, you get to hear it, or see it, right away as opposed to waiting until the final minutes of the show.
To top it off, I love that the first half of each show is an in depth look at the locations being investigated. As a history buff, you have to love when the crew takes learns the history (usually violent) of places like the Sloss Furnace or the Idaho Penitentiary.
So if you want some fun goosebump raising entertainment, that at times can be corny as well as a little spooky, I recommend you give this show a try.
At first after seeing Ghost Adventures in action i thought Zack and his team were soft of goofs... and they are somewhat, but to me they are way more into what they do and it naturally shows... and they are not afraid to push the envelope and try different things like provocation, props, etc which in many ways makes sense. I just get more of a sense of passion about what they are doing and they seem to do more ground work with the equipment they have and only three people considering TAPS has more people and seems to capture less consistently.
The other thing is that TAPS seems to just move on when things get good and spicey and Zack/Nick/Aaron keep pushing to the brink when things heat up...
Ghost hunters doesn't seem to spend as much time investigating as Ghost Adventures and even when they do find things there is no real excitement or acknowledgement of what they found...
They like debunking and that's good but some of their debunks are purely obvious speculation with little more ground than the original myth.
I also love the Zack's history approach before the investigation that Ghost Adventures has. Lots of historic information from a variety of people/perspectives... I think it does allot of building up. I love Zack's walking the neighborhood and asking people...
Again they just seem to really be into what they are doing.
Ghost Hunters while trying to operate from 100% objectivity in many ways actually restrict their investigative creativity because of this. I mean face it your hunting ghosts and while your trying to tell a true and accurete story... sometimes its like Walter Cronkite in news...Read more ›

|ghost adventures rock!!! ghost hunters suck!||
I'm sorry, but if you're scared of ghosts, you shouldn't go looking for them. The minute someone on a paranormal show gets scared or something that should be mundane in that field, I write the show off. Seriously, I'm scared of snakes... guess what, I don't go looking for them. Also, an abundance... Read More
