Ghost Hunters International

I must say, my favorite of the ghost shows is simply "Ghost Hunters". Ghost Hunters International, while entertaining and somewhat informative, seems to lack chemistry and substance. I was driven mad several times by investigators attempting to gather electronic voice phenomena by speaking in English to ghosts that might not understand that language. Of course, who is to say that language really matters in the great beyond, yet, they unabashedly made requests in their own tongue without thought that this may be a futile effort. Overall, I still enjoyed each show -- I slept in this morning!

  1. I agree about GHI. I understand the premise that a ghost might have transcended the limitations of their knowledge on this plane and be able to understand languages, but if he's really that bright, why hasn't he left that damp dungeon? You would be astounded at the methods of the show "Ghost Adventures" on the Travel Channel where they go and lock themselves in for the night and yell and harass and generally do everything short of tagging the walls with spray cans to try and anger the ghosts. You might laugh at "Paranormal State" on A&E channel where the young college students use Catholic methods to make the ghosts go bye-bye. The original "Ghost Hunters" is still the best, and yet I'd revamp the way they do things a lot. They're much too "loose" for my tastes. No one seems to know what their job is and no one seems to have a specialty, except for Steve and his video equipment. All in all, there's a bit we could gather from each show to make the ultimate show. But, isn't that always the way with TV?
