I think somewhere along this thread wires have been crossed.
This thread was started three years ago, when Derek Acorah was set up by Dr Ciaran O'Keeffe, after he suspected, that the psychic was acting during
his many alleged possessions by Spirits.
Now i cant remember the names used because it was so long ago, but the event went something like this, the intentionally stood where Derek Acorah
could listen if he wanted to, and spoke about a non existent story about a Spirit haunting the place they where investigating, they used two anagrams
as the names of the Spirits, im sure one of them was an anagram for Derek lies, and I'm unsure about the other to attempt to explain it.
Anyhow Derek Acorah fell for it and became possessed by the anagrams.
Living Tv who produce the show whee told as where the shows presenters, Yvette fielding, and her husband Karl Beattie, Derek decided to leave the
show, but his contract to Living TV was still valid, so they gave him his own show called Derek Acorahs Ghost Towns, this show was about him traveling
from town to town, investigating domestic hauntings in peoples homes,
I think his show has fizzled out now, but Most Haunted is still going, in fact it is having its spin off Most Haunted Live over the last few nights,
last one being tonight if i remember right, 31/08/2008.
When i said at the start of this post that the thread had become twisted, what i meant was, it changed from talking about Most Haunted to Talking and
associating the show with TAPS.
TAPS is an American show called Ghost Hunters, set around two men who work as plumbers, and during their spare time, they get invited to investigate
haunted places with a small team, they have a huge fan base, and this has grown into other teams using the TAPS Logo.
More recently there has been a spin off called Ghost Hunters International, which i am not sure about its popularity.
Im also not sure what T.A.P.S stands for sorry.
IMO Most Haunted does use artistic license to make the show more entertaining, and I'm sure several times they have used trickery, the obvious
trickery is always around, Karl Beattie, and Stuart ???? sorry can't remember his Surname, and IMO Stuart acts way over the top for someone
investigating the Paranormal.
Ghost Hunters IMO is more professional looking, but still, i feel embarrassed for them sometimes, they line up like school kids during their live
shows during breaks, i think it makes them look daft sorry, as for their investigations, they are too short, I will tell you though, the guy with the
bald head, the leader of TAPS, thet guy is fearless, ive only ever seen him jump once or twice, and that makes the British show Most Haunted team look
like little girls.
Just to add, Most Haunted is run by a company called Antix productions, this company is owned by Yvette Fielding, and Karl Beattie, the presenters of
the show, also they have just started their own TV channel called the Paranormal channel, on cable here in the UK, right now it looks a little cheap,
really old shows and a ton of repeating already aired shows, but everything has to start somewhere.
I'm guessing this thread was bumped by Anonymous user? thats why its a few years old, and their post wont appear until viewed by a MOD?
Anyhow thats all i know about Most Haunted, and Ghost Hunters, out of the two, Ghost Hunters is more professional, Most Haunted needs less Karl and
Stuart antics, a lot less screaming, and they need to stop bleeping everything out, you can't hear a word for bleeps its shown at a time when bleeps
shouldn't be needed, and we are all grown ups, if people don't like the language they can switch channels, all that bleeping ruins it IMO, less self
important presenters, and sound back on their live show web cams. IMHO.
