Editorial Reviews

Paranormal State is the very first series that explores paranormal investigations through the eyes and minds of college students. This series follows the dramatic life of Penn State University college student Ryan Buell and the other student members of one of the first university sanctioned Paranormal Research Society (PRS) as they seek to find the truth behind terrifying real life mysteries. Although the members of PRS are your basic college kids - dealing with the problems of school, dating, and finding their way in the world - they are definitely looking into other worlds as well, working on cases that include poltergeists, haunting and the darkest areas of the unknown. Each week they are contacted for help by outside parties ranging from The Catholic Church to ordinary families who are terrified by something supernatural happening in their lives.

Oh he has that B named demon after him.

Interesting but a little confusing as to what was happening at times.

This show appealed to me as a 'Ghost Hunter' fan. Wow, was that a mistake. While the 'Ghost Hunters' enter a site wearing their skepticism and ready to debunk anything they can, THIS program has college kids who go into the site assuming it is haunted, possibly cursed with demons. They don't even attempt to look for other explanations, they just sit around deciding whether to call a priest to exorcise the place.

Seriously, this is not a good program, save your time and money...

What makes this show different is the college people who are investigating all these unusual occurences. Ryan has had experiences with the paranormal and ghosts all his life and he's a great "leader" of this group. He takes this stuff very seriously and I like the fact that he calls Lorraine Warren and also the Catholic Church into the most disturbing and troublesome cases. Ghost Hunters or TAPS are great but they don't help to free the spirits from their earthly presence. They don't clear out a demonic spirit or hold exorcisms to help homeowners which is usually needed. Ryan and his team will do that. It is absolutely amazing how many spirits and entities roam our world afraid or unable to cross over into the next. And Demonic hauntings - extremely scary and dangerous. Keep up the good work Ryan!

I have been very impressed with Paranormal State for many reasons. They do more than go into a situation and find evidence of spirits, a haunting, etc., they then try to solve the problem. They don't just say - "yeah, you've got a ghost, bye now." They help the family understand what is happening and why, they help the spirit move on (or not, if the family decides letting it remain is the right thing to do). It is all handled with sincerity and professionalism and great decorum. When they do "dead time" and ask questions (hoping to get answers on the EVP recorder), they don't bombard the entity with questions, they ask a question, then give it an opportunity to respond. They don't joke around when on site. They don't yak to each other. They focus totally on what they are doing. They are so polite and caring. Chip Coffey, the medium they bring in on some of the cases, is wonderful. He is very talented and I like him a lot. Although I do enjoy Ghost Hunters, too, the two series are as different as night and day. I look forward to Paranormal State II coming out on DVD as well when the new season ends.

I am a pure beliver in the paranormal because I personally have seen ghosts in my lifetime that is what makes me curious watching these ghost hunting shows. For me it all started with the U.K's Most Haunted, it was a very entertaining show until they started with their fake table movings, knocks and personal attacks. Then there is Ghost Hunters. Ghost Hunters usually have alot of nothing going on, but still is interesting when they do catch something. Now there is Paranormal State. Why is Paranormal State so great. First of all not much happens here which leads me to believe that nothing is staged or fake on the show. The Best part of the show are the psychics who come in for a visit. Chip Coffey is overdramtic and funny when he demands, We Need An Exorcism. I get really excited when psychic Lorraine Warren pops on in an episode here and there. I loved when Chip was in a trance and Lorainne smacked him in the face to wake him up. Funny Stuff Here. But the main characters are the people themselves. Half of them are crazy and looney and our host Ryan usually feels sorry for them by the end of every episode. There are plenty of scares and interesting findings in the show. I just hope they keep it real and put Chip and Lorainne on every episode. Better than Most Haunted and Ghost Hunters.

So, this gets two stars because that represents "I don't like it." I feel like it's deserving of one star or less, but one star stands for "I hate it." I'll at least say that I don't HATE it, but that's about the only positive thing. I bought seasons 1-3 for $10 (which would be a good deal if this was anything worthy) at a yard sale. I've seen all the episodes from those seasons and repeatedly found plenty to be disappointed in.

Originally, I posted this with a whole lot of information, but it was getting so long. . .and I keep finding more and more. Thus, I removed a lot and will be making a video instead that will eventually be here or elsewhere.

Here are a few annoyances:

- You see moments after what would have been the commercial break that are different. For example, in one we have this 'psychic' talking about feeling a little girl who was murdered. Before the break, Ryan took off the hood of a jacket from his head. Afterwards, it was already off and the 'psychic' said the same words of how 'I think she was murdered.' So, she repeated her words at different times and the hood was off at different times. Also, things said at times include MORE information than the first time they were spoken. With episodes having about 20 minutes of time, except for the occasional double-length ones, obviously a lot is cut out. The retakes of scenes should at least be more accurate.

- I think it's silly that the 'psychics' are usually spot-on with many things...and then we frequently see members of PRS doing historical research to validate what they heard. Of course, the 'psychic' could easily have done the same thing first or found something on the internet before visiting a place.
