I guess I would say I do believe in what they are doing, but to me, they allow Sci Fi... I'm sorry. Scyfy...to take over for them in some cases. Its
probably due to money, whatever. It allows for someone outside your organization to "spice up" your reality TV show with cute girls, Wrestling stars
no ones heard of, etc. Its bad marketing, and break the show from its original, possibly good willed TV show. In other words, it got perverted .
I for one like Ghosthunters, but yeah, some of their stuff seems tainted by this evil producer, twirling his mustache and counting $100 bills off
I assume a situation with the evil mustached producer would go something like this.
"Evil Mustached Producer"": Jason, you guys have some great footage from the 1st season, but so far, you havent found anything THIS season.
Jason: That may be true, but Ghosts only come out when THEY want to, not when they know the shows being filmed.
"Evil Mustached Producer"": True. How about this. When we think there will be no decent footage, we reserve the right to send in a team before you, to
facilitate the upcoming show. What they do will be secret and you wont be involved so no harm right? Your show may have to count on that if you want
it to survive and deliver your message to people.
Jason: I guess so.
Mix it to to your liking.
Now, I use "Evil Mustached Producer" in poor taste there, but I'm sure you understand. As much as many people here want to point out that the show is
fake, I can point out that it may be real. Truth is, like most of ATS, or Conspiracies, at some point you have to either put up or shut up, and just
know what you know, and be happy.
I worked for a famous magician for a time as a labor tech. I know for a fact that he hires people from the crew to be picked by him for a short
performance involving the audience. The reason being is that this way he can control whos coming on stage, how they react, and making sure that these
people are under the NDA, instead of people coming up, looking for wires, causing distractions, being scared stiff, etc. Its just easier this way.
Now imagine that you find out that this famous magician uses plants. Wouldnt that lend to it all being fakery?
Funny thing is, although I was on the "inside" and moved some of his gear around on stage ( All black locked boxes, we just shoved them stage left ,
right or center and left them for his core crew to set up) and NEVER once had any inkling to how any of his tricks were accomplished whatsoever.
Its just the way its done to make the show go smoother. I imagine Ghosthunters does it as well and you can see it in that youtube clip, which I
believe is from one of the season collections on DVD.
So idiots like me watch the show. I get pleasure from it, and regardless of how Zealous, or "Fanboi" I may come across to some of you, I dont use it
as a college credit and write notes. Its just dang fun.
From what I've seen, which is all the seasons and what bit I could read about them online, It seems like Jason is on a quest for the truth, and I
love their approach on the whole subject, as it resembles what ATS believes in. Don't look into experience to find proof, look to the experience to
find doubt. Remove the doubt and what remains is the truth. Awesome.
As far as the show getting "tainted" as I said, My guess is that' it doesnt sit as well with Jason as it does with Grant.
Just my humble opinion.
