The show was interesting but like most of these shows Ghost Hunters, Paranormal State, Monster Quest, Destination Truth (I happen to know Josh and can
pretty much tell you he doesn't believe in anything he researches but is a devout archaeologist. The only reason I can say he took the job was 1) to
either prove once and for all that these things do not exist... and 2) he took the job, like anyone else would for $ and to promote his not so fruit
full career as an actor as well as boost his own ego.
Sorry, this wasn't meant to be a bashing on him. i probably would have taken the job as well... but at least I know in my heart that I'm open to the
possibilities of such things in existence and would gladly swap places with him.)
I've actually met Bill's wife on a few television sets, working as extras. She is a very pleasant woman but other than a brief discussion of UFO
magazine, we didn't talk about much else except our hopes that catering would be tasty that day.
Bill, I believe is a kind and passionate person (though I've never met him), I truly think that what seems like his "jumping to conclusions", is
just his way of trying to make things as public as he can to the general population while he had a chance to reach a bigger audience. Maybe a bit of a
show boater but I do believe his heart is in the right place.
Ultimately, I think these shows are not given the time or the consideration to really delve into these issues and are obviously more based on flash to
keep people tuning into the program. If they could just push the envelope further somehow, without getting all Hollywood... now that would be a show
worth tuning into! That unfortunately, I haven't seen since Sightings and even that show didn't go as far as I had hoped. It has to start with
dedicated researchers who can put the Ego to the back burner and do some truly in depth research into these subjects. I think if it was more
informative and less hyped up people would still tune in... but would Networks bother with that... probably not. That infuriates me.
my buddy and i were thinking of creating a show that would really try to get to the meat of some things and make it more interactive with the
audience... but alas he moved back to Fl. with his very nice camera due to all the $$ problems we are all facing today. Maybe someday.
