5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Scare for Your Money September 13, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I used to be a diehard Ghost Hunters fan. Well, now that Ghost Hunters are boring, aging, and faking evidence, I got interested again in watching Ghost Adventures. What these three guys achieve as far as REAL evidence, energetic film making, and giving us a more satisfying back story to each haunted location, is far above and beyond what Ghost Hunters is dredging out these days. I like the way Zak provokes "only the bad entities" and ultimately gets results. Their reactions to their interactions with the spirit world are genuine and fun to watch. These guys are the real deal and unlike GH, they scream and run sometimes, and you know what? So would I!!! That's why I love them. I love that they take more time to show us the history of the locations and they are very respectful of the people they interview. It just adds so much more to the show and to our experience. Try not to be moved by "Redbone", the ex-inmate of Moundsville Penitentiary, who couldn't wait to take the boys on a tour of the prison after over 20 years of freedom from its walls, only to have to leave in tears when visiting his best friend's cell and recalling the day of his friend's murder in that very cell. VERY touching stuff. Zak, Aaron, and Nick love what they do and it shows. The episodes are sufficiently creepy and amazing in the evidence they produce. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season One October 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As this is their first season, it's a little rough around the edges but you can see them develop, become better at presenting their investigations and collecting observable phenomnena. Their enthusiasm for the investigations and finding what is really out there is entertaining.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet loved it! September 23, 2009
By Jojo K
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of these ghost hunter type things, but I would have to put this show on the top of my list.. it doesn't have the medium, i like that added touch, but I love it how this show just gets right into it, Zac is crazy with some of the stuff he says,but he doesn't run from an expereince and stays and plays it through.. ( a pet hate from other ghost investigation shows).
They also give you the history behind things and get a background... just love it and can't wait for more!!! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING! September 13, 2009
By Amiee
Every single episode is amazing! I absolutely love these guys! They make it so interesting and they don't fake anything..everything is REAL! I love how they give you a background on the places that they visit and interview people that have encountered these spirits. I also love how they are willing to try new things like all different types of equipment and new ways to communicate with the spirits. I can't wait for season 2!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but great set! November 1, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Huge fan of the show. I watch it every week on the Travel Channel. If you enjoy good, raw ghost hunting, this is the show for you. Not as many episodes as I thought, I think they could do without the bleeps when they curse. I also would have liked to see the two-hour documentary that started the whole show. The documentary is among the most chilling footage of paranormal activity I've seen yet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Even for an Unbeliever February 16, 2011
I'm not a believer in the paranormal, but I love a good ghost story. I enjoy getting goosebumps watching movies like "Paranormal Activity" or "The Grudge".

"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Awesome Show - Better Than TAPS December 31, 2009
Typing Fast Here..

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...

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
