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

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!

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!

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.

Another wonderful purchase I was not sorry to get. I have spoken out for the love of this show, and wish so much that it would be back for many more seasons to come. For me, no other can compare to the sincerity of this team to help, really help the people that asked for help. Not just showed up with equipment and said "yes you have problems" and left. They brought in the best armed forces a person could ever ask for, Chip, Michell, father Bob Bailey, and the famous Loraine Warren...and this show was faked, rehearsed. Give me a break. I was married to a cop, and one thing I learned is how to tell when someone is lying. If you do you may get away with it once or twice, but you can't pull it off forever. It's all in the face, and not always what you do or don't say. I don't care how good of an actor you are, you could not pull off concern, sincerity, and that committment for over 5 seasons.....I will forever miss that show, but now I can savor it forever.

'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!
