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.

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.

I am a paranormal enthusiast. I enjoy Ghost Hunters because of their approach to the investigation and the fact that, as is to be expected, they don't always get results. They don't call a place haunted lightly (although they seem to be calling more places haunted in later episodes, as though they are selling out for the ratings). Paranormal State (which could be renamed B.S.U) however apparently knows just where to go to get an alleged hit EVERY time they go out. They show nothing to support their claims that something is actually happening. Film evidence? Nope. Infrared camera? Nothing. Their EVPs, when they have them? Questionable. (And don't even get me started on the Frank's Box that allows them to talk to the ghosts AND get immediate responses) What do we have to go on? Their on-call psychic, Chip Coffey(?). He is the type of psychic that gives the few legitemate psychics out there a bad name. I found myself getting so frustrated with these people and their alleged findings that I wished I could reach into the television and smack them. At one point I thought that maybe I was wrong in thinking that this was a reality show. I thought that it must be a television series about a reality show. Nope. It's a reality show. I will except having to give it a one star rating because I did actually think that the first episode was good. If you want to enjoy this series, stop at the first show. If you want a good investigative show, go with "Ghost Hunters". If you want good documentory type shows, I'd recommend "A Haunting" (but realize that they do tend to over-dramatize the events) and "Haunted Histories". As for Paranormal State, don't waste your time or money.
