Product Description

Delve deep into the strange and the mysterious with Paranormal Research Society founder Ryan Buell and his intrepid team of investigators as they attempt to unravel inexplicable paranormal phenomena around the country. Among the weird events the supernatural sleuths examine are sixth-sense experiences, ghost sightings, demonic disturbances, and brushes with the darkest areas of the unknown.

Founded by Buell in 2001, the PRS works on cases across the country and is one of the most recognized groups of its kind in the nation. Season Two of this two-disc set from A&E includes a Pennsylvania couple bedeviled by paranormal activity in their home, an aggressive poltergeist in Maryland, and a ghostly hag nicknamed the "Lady Vampire" by the Texas family she torments.

PRS uses Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) recordings, video documentation, old-fashioned research and the help of renowned psychics, demonologists, psychologists and counselors to explore these bizarre cases in the hopes of helping frightened people who have nowhere else to turn. PARANORMAL STATE: THE COMPLETE SEASON TWO contains all 12 eerie episodes on 2 DVDs.

Your enjoyment of the reality series Paranormal State is entirely dependent on your willingness to believe in the supernatural as a real and often physical entity in the material world; those who cannot will simply dismiss the show as so much smoke and mirrors, while those who can will find the episodes contained here chilling evidence of unknown entities and powers. College student Ryan Buell and his Paranormal Research Society are front and center again for 13 more encounters with the unknown, including crop circles ("Haunted Ranch"), poltergeists ("Shadows and Smoke"), a creature known as "Lady Vampire," headless ghosts ("The Messenger"), and a woman claiming to be possessed by demons ("Hell's Gate"). The show's technical aspects remain its chief selling point to its faithful and casual viewers alike; POV camerawork combined with horror movie-style music, editing and lighting help to underscore the creepier aspects of the investigations. However, the show remains unable to provide more than circumstantial proof of actual paranormal phenomena, and in one case--the alleged possession--their investigation appears to conflict with a genuine case of mental illness. Such problems will only bolster the claims of the program's detractors, but it appears to have no effect on its fans, who are seen in full worship mode during an appearance by the tem at Comic-Con. The latter is one of the set's few extras, which include brief interviews with the principals and a smattering of deleted scenes. --Paul Gaita

There are many supernatural/spiritual shows out there, such as: A Haunting, Ghost Hunters, and Paranormal Destinations to name a few. But Paranormal State is in my opinion the best show of its kind. I consider myself to be a believing skeptic, in that while I believe in the paranormal, I am skeptical about these types of shows. Just because I believe in it, does not mean that I believe every ghost story/show I hear or see. In fact, because of my firm belief, I am less likely to believe most stories I hear.
The first episode of Paranormal State that I saw had me hooked. The shows host Ryan Buell, seems authentic, and very knowledgeable about things of the paranormal. I was very surprised to see the way Buell handled things as they unfolded before him. Also I like that the show neither embraces nor dismisses any one faith, (religion) but rather keeps an open mind. Also the fact that the show protects its viewers really caught my attention. There was an episode where the father of a haunted family kept saying out loud the name of the demon that tormented him. For the show, they bleeped the name out. This is because you're not supposed to say a demons name out loud unless you're ready to do battle with it. Buell is also protective of his team. When things start to get too heated, he'll send the less experienced members of the team away.
Another thing that makes this show great is that they don't just get rid of the ghost or demon, or whatever it may be, but they also help to empower the families and stay in-touch with them. Bottom line, this is a great show!

'Paranormal State' was introduced to me via DVD, shortly after season one arrived in stores.
As another viewer noted, once you start watching, you can't stop.
I was highly impressed, and eagerly awaiting season two, which was released in late January.

The series continues with some truly eerie episodes, notably a haunted horse ranch & a discarded voodoo doll that haunts it's previous owners with an unshakable curse.

Ryan Buell conducts himself as highly intelligent, highly curious & sympathetic to the unfortunate souls involved in the various hauntings.
Buell is also very straight-forward, and able to detect how believable some of the paranormal scenarios really are, by way of interviews with the clients.

Buell's team, though not quite as engaging or driven as he is, are also extremely likeable and entertaining.
Chip Coffey, also returns, with his own unique perspective on the troubled spirits that may (or may not) inhabit various locations.
The overall production is fantastic, and offers a true sense of the experiences felt by the Paranormal Research team.
Authentic sounds are also captured, leading to a few stunned responses by the investigators.

Season two offers twelve half-hour episodes in a two disc set.
The extras are minimal, but with a program of such high quality, the various chapters speak for themselves.

Amazon is offering an excellent price for this series, so i highly recommend the curious viewer pick this one up!

I like Paranormal State, however, we have had a huge problem with Supermart Customer Service b-c the second DVD was defective. I emailed customer service twice, never got a response. I tried calling and the number on their website is incorrect. I emailed them several times through Amazon and after several weeks they finally responded after I already sent the defective product back. I sent it certified to the correct address and I have not received the signed copy where it shows they have received it. I bought it brand new. I will never buy from that company again. I have never had any problems until now with anything I have purchased from Amazon until now.

What Did Jesus Really Say-How Christianity Went Astray: [What To Say To A Born Again Christian Fundamentalist, But Never Had The Information] -- by Peter Cayce [2005]

I've been watching Ghost Hunters (via satellite and in the States) from almost the very beginning. I've now seen the original programs and have read the books of Jason and Grant too. I have to say that I believe that ghosts may exist, but I want some kind of evidence. Some kind of proof. These investigators -- and their paranormal investigation team -- work on the same premise. They attempt to "debunk" paranormal claims, but when they gather evidence that is hard to "debunk" or "dispute," they are left with evidence that may actually support life after death (i.e., ghost, paranormal activity).

While Ghost Hunters works with a scientific leaning by utilizing technical equipment from EMF meters / K2 meters, digital thermometers, night vision cameras and thermal sensor equipment, etc., other paranormal programs utilize spirit mediums and the like. While I do not discount psychic mediums and sensitives, their evidence is hard to prove or "debunk." Nevertheless, programs like "Paranormal State" and "Paranormal Cops" (broadcast on A&E) have their place as well. They are certainly interesting. Psychic mediums like John Edward and Chip Coffee are quite interesting. In fact, I've been watching John Edward for many years. He's gotten a bit "mushy" as of late (even for WE) -- his original program on SyFy used to display his medium abilities more readily. In short, more readings.
