First to the technical issues. With all the tech ppl and all the cameras on a computer screen showing multiple rooms, and all the equipment; they never show us one thing beyond the faces of the ppl reacting. They saw something move, saw a shadow, saw a figure. GREAT! Yet there's never any video to show us what they saw. "Did you hear that?" "What was that sound?" Well gee, who knows since all we as the viewer get to hear is the scary background music they throw in.

I have no doubt the crew is telling the truth as to what they see and hear, but you'd think for a show trying to capture it would actually show us things. We see nothing. This big camera crew and all they focus on is Ryan's face, Katrina's face, Michelle's face, their personal reactions etc..

I'm intrigued by the topic of anything paranormal and this has become such a complete disappointment. There's snipets here and there where you get a moment of excitement because they actually show something for half a second. It's a fleeting moment that passes quickly.

The biggest let down is Ryan himself. His whole reason for starting this quest and all his emotional moments of talking about his experiences as a child and how hard it was for nobody to believe him. He seems to have become very numb to this and now does the same thing to other ppl. In just about every episode, he is so eager to dismiss what the ppl pleading for help are telling him that is going on, what they've seen, what they've heard, and how they've felt.

In his talks with the crew, before he's even met the clients, he makes comments that things are probably hallucinations, bad dreams they probably had, mental issues, and even lying.. the one thing he himself still talks about in an emotional way about being so difficult for him.

I LOVE this stuff. I am a huge fan of paranormal research and while most investigations don't turn up anything, I still get a thrill out of it. If you are a fan of this type of genre, you will love this DVD.

What I Can Tell You:

I am a huge fan of A&E and I am also a huge fan of paranormal shows. Trying not to compare it to other widely popular shows, Paranormal State is headed by Ryan Buell who is also the director seems to really care about his cases. Although he is a little less empathetic than he was in earlier seasons. This series is different from the others because they use a psychic medium and often times bring in a priest to cleanse the house of any spirits. If you enjoy paranormal documentaries you will be interested in Paranorm

Each episode is relatively the same, way to much hype over minor sounds. In a word, lame. Not worth the time.

Must say I have watched this show for the " entertainment " value more than anything, but with the latest release totally over it. I am not sure how dedicated the " team " is to helping people, if they are at all. It seems they love certain phrases and for people that do this sort of thing they seem VERY alarmed if they think they find something. Notice how the show is more and more of them blurting out and NOT of any real event or pick up, notice how they " see " shadows but the camera's never catch a thing, notice how there are hot spots and they seldom watch these area's, notice how short the " dead " times actually are, notice how they always do things in the dark for effect when many cases reported have daytime sightings etc.. It may also be my feeling of disappointment but in this last series there are more and more mirrors, more and more shots of Ryan looking at himself in them, surely he has earnt enough money by now to buy his own mirror or is he just vain ????? Maybe the director is possessed by mirror's or his mother was attacked by one but something is strange here and it's not the filmed vision presented which is after all, why one would buy this ! Maybe the most Paranormal thing is why we all still buy this stuff when ...................

I've been a big fan since the first Season aired on TV back in 2007. Then a few years later I was able to watch and view all season on Netflix in 2010 but I never had a chance to watch Season 5 until now in 2015 on Amazon stream. I'm a big fan and really like the documentary show with the characters (original Pen State team) and all their interesting paranormal cases, but now that I finally had the chance to watched all of Season 5, I was extremely disappointed in (Episode 21 "If I Should Die") with the New Class/ new Pen State team. None of them look like or sounded like they had any kind of paranormal experience, or they didn't even provided any kind of entertaining value. Thank god A&E did not produce another season with the New Pen State team. Please bring back the original team, please add a new season starting in 2015 or 2016. Thank you!

Its is an ok series. Just wish they woukd actually show some of the results from their findings. Like recordings and any video evidence. On a rare occasiin they might, but it is not consistant. Part of the reasons people watch these shows is to see first hand that these things are real.

I find this show very entertaining, Usually with seasons you have a few good episodes and a few boring episodes. Paranormal State season 5 is a DVD set that I'd recommend to any fan of the show. I don't think this season has 1 bad episode. Totally worth the money to have in your collection. Enjoy.
