The guys are just growing, and if they seem different it's because they have traveled far and experienced ummm... experiences. I still think the show is fun enough to pay for, *see me here now* and the production quality on the Alcatraz episode was occasionally quite pretty, I got to see real San Francisco fog. To recognize the Golden Gate Bridge, suicide capitol of the world, showed a certain intellectual curiosity. I will never get to see San Francisco, but I think they brought it to me. I do think they could have shown a bit more of the local scenery, this being a Travel Channel show, but it was fun. (doesn't actually believe in ghosts but likes the show) ;)
This show caused me to make the move from the free YouTube to the pay-per-view Amazon, although the video lag is much worse. You would think if you actually pay for something the service would improve but apparently not.
I love the Ghost Adventures Show. There is a lot of weird things that happen on that show. Sometimes it can be alittle scary. To me it proves that there is something beyond this life in that there are ghosts and spirits. The one show that I saw in the past in which a girl communicates with her parents was totally amazing. They bake a birthday cake for her birthday every year and speak to her spirit.
I always like the way Ghost Adventures attacks the paranormal from the perspective of testing new equipment and new theories. Unless your a total non believer I think more then enough evidence has been discovered to make you at least consider their is another existence after death. Zack, Nick and Arron try their best to prove this at over the years their commitment has not wavered.
The first half of the show they do all their homework on the site, (history, interviews,etc.). Then the last half is the overnight lockdown inside the place. This show and "The Dead Files" are my two favorite paranormal shows, Ghost Adventures being more fun and these guys' personalities are just great. Funny stuff happens, that scares you at the same time. Gotta watch these guys, they're definitely the most entertaining.
