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.Read more ›
Seriously, this is not a good program, save your time and money...
This show may represent what ghost hunting is probably really like. They went to this place. There had been no history of violent or premature deaths. They had one EVP supposedly and a motion sensor go off--but they couldn't tell what had set it off. It was very scientifically done. None of this "I'm so scared!" stuff you see that can be silly but at least entertaining. In the end, they didn't find much, and they just did a house blessing.
Now, I do believe in ghosts. I also know that real life ghosts are never as interesting as the movies make them out to be. This show probably does show the true reality of ghost hunting--from what the episode I watched. On that merit, it may be a good documentary. However, if you want entertainment, it makes for really boring TV.
Why? Too much religious nonsense, that's why. Now the show itself would be ok, if they didn't have a bunch of useless people who are part of the posse and giving unneeded, and unwanted input into "this place is creepy, I want to leave" lines, and they usually do leave. But what makes me cringe more, is that this is, and I swear it's true, this is the kind of paranormal show for born again Christians. Being an atheist, it's just eye rolling to me that this guy's intro to every show is talking about how something happened to him as a kid, and he's been investigating paranormal activity since... but get this, get this.. it's hilarious... as you progress through the first season, a psychic picks up on the presence of a demon... wait, stay with me here... but this demon is not actually haunting the place they are in... no, it's following the main investigator around, and telling him to get ready to battle, because the time to square off is coming... I swear, I may have re-worded that a bit, but that's exactly what is going on in this season! To paint a better picture, imagine you are watching Ghost Hunters, and then Zuul and Goza start issuing challenges to the group, and saying, SOON we are going to battle. BWUAHAHAHAHA... Oh man, this show is pathetic.Read more ›
