Personally I love the show,
The St. Augustine Lighthouse in my opinion gives some very good evidence for ghosts. the black shadow that over looks the railing seems too real to
me. and not faked. To me it's a great piece of evidence.
However I know of an instance where they chalked up something to being paranormal that I know had a perfectly reasonable cause.
When they were on the USS North Carolina, the battle ship that was torpedoed in WWII. They were in one of the crews shower rooms. The room was right
around the water line and a few crew members were taking a shower when the torpedo hit killing them. So the Ghost Hunters are standing in this room
right next to the huge welded back together patch of hull where the torpedo hit looking for ghosts. their EMF meter is going off and they come to the
conclusion that the EMF detector is getting evidence of a Spirit.
Buuuuuuut Weldings are known to have magnetic fields. and they are standing next to a huge weld job. The navy degausses ships all the time after
they make repairs on them to remove the magnetic fields that the welding leaves (among other things) welders know that welding leaves magnetic
They say that theres ghosts in that room due to the EMF. I say they are picking up the welding, and confusing it with ghosts.
but that aside I agree that the show is the most scientific of all the ghost hunting shows and that they are the best at what they do.
Most haunted. I can't even watch that show for more than a few seconds before getting annoyed and changing the channel. that show should be on MTV2
and not where they are right now. With the actors on that show it's more on the level of an MTV watcher than their current demographic they are
attempting to harness.
As for the characters on Ghost hunters. heres my take not that anybody cares.
Jason and Grant. Honest people. Good folk. I doubt they would be involved in a hoax. Although on season 2's deleted scenes there is a part where
at the mertle's plantation jason smacks his set manager for firing one of the camera men and for having a sprite bottle filled with jack daniels or
something. It looked a little fake to me, and jason would have been sued for assulting somebody.
Steve-honest guy, don't think he would make stuff up. seems to have an even keel except for his various phobias. but those phobias seem to be real
and not embelished. he truely seems afraid to fly. nothing wrong with steve, I think he makes a great tech manager.
Justin- does a good job, a little too in to himself and annoying with the backwards visor thing but a good guy, not a faker.
Dave- a good guy. more intelligent than he seems but is a little shy and dumbs down to fit in more. he doesn't like conflict nor is he a alpha
male, but he is smarter than he leads on. seems like a good guy.
Brian- a putz. I feel for the guy cause he is a nice guy, but a low self esteem, blame the world type. he always has an excuse, he's always getting
his feelings hurt. he's always easily excited. Sees a ghost in everything. he's even had to debunk himself once when he mistook his own shadow
for a ghost. (literally while at leap castle)
I like most of the girls on the show. I like donna. she seems alright to me and not a hoaxer. The new girl that was on GHI for the first few
episodes but is gone sucked. the one who dressed like she was from New Jersey. (Got nothing against new jerseyers)
The Irish guy barry is alright in the sense that you can tell that he is deeply passionant about ghost hunting and seems to have some in depth
knowledge about the field but he wigs out on everything. everything is a ghost to him. too much like brian, but minus the bad interpersonal
Andy. hated him at first. a 12 year old pre pubecent boy stuck in a grown mans body, but he is good at debunking things. a little annoying and over
zealous about it, but he has a good role to play. not god camera material though. he's annoying.
Question. what does an EMF detector prove? couldn't just about everything set one of those off now a days not just ghosts. What I mean is if one
were inside a house. wouldn't a lot of things effect that thing other than faulty wiring?
All my gripes aside the show is great. the best one for ghost hunting out there.
