I never knew being a Blue Peter presenter paid so well. :wnw:

Ha, I think being the daft presenter of various haunted shows is what pays the big money. I guess it must sell in the US too.

EDIT:

Smart cookie, she set her own production company for the scary stuff.

Oh I'll bet they do. For an advanced country meant to be leading the way into the 21st century, the US seems one of the most superstitious as well.
Sure have heard some stats about the things they believe in, like more believe in ghosts than evolution (although stats are just as dodgy as the supernatural)

Bet the shows are great for the tv execs too. Get a few screamers, some cameras and a host, and go somewhere that is a bit old and creepy in the dark :roll: and you have an episode of America's Most Creepy Situations on Camera! :D

It's just more reality tv without the reality. :puke:

I am thinking that cynics should not be allowed to speak about ghosts. I happen to believe in them, the supernatural, and mediums. So nyah!

Oh, so we have a member of the thought police amongst us.

In yours, like most cases I shall put your belief down to an over active imagination :P Or maybe too much cheese late at night.

I think that if you can attribute my thoughts to imagination, I get to attribute your cynical nature to faithlessness and a coldness of the heart as well as blatant disregard of the world around you.

one out of three isn't bad.

no faith/belief in any hoodoo, spirits, gods, goblins or anything else like that.

One short life is all you get. So I'm always immensely sadden by those who waste it or spend it in pain and misery in the vain hope that it will get them something better afterwards.

I would have to believe first. Having very little imagination means that I don't.

I've said it before, I've lived and worked, in and around the most haunted village in Britain and never seen a thing.

Call me a professional cynic.


I can understand that, but you could try going to those places during the witching hour?

And as for Most Haunted, I think the way that show is done is very unprofessional, basing their decisions on personal experiances alone, unlike Ghost Hunters who use actual equipment to try and pick up physical evidance, and they match that with personal experiances. Also, Derek Acorah is a big fake, not even I believe him, and I used to believe in Santa Claus!

I remember Ghost Hunters went to a particular location (A Citadel in Transylvania I think) and there was a story about the well, Yvette said she sensed things, and ghosts tried to communicate with her in the well, BUT during a Ghost Hunters investigation there, their researcher found out that that particular story is fake..'nuff said.

Ghost Hunters yay (saying a kid wasn't being pestered by a ghost, the kid played video games straight before bed so he moved a heck of a lot, which he did), Most Haunted nay (Derek Acorah's 'possessions'...nuff said)

And wow Project, I'm only a L....xD

The best thing about Most Haunted was Derek Acorah's hilarious possessions, especially since it gave everybody the chance to snigger and make vaguely unpleasant sexual innuendo. I always hoped that he'd channel the spirit of a tall guy called Richard one day just so Derek could shout about being entered by a big Dick. Ahh, missed opportunities.

Back on tttooooppppiicccc, whilst I'm rather cynical I'm not one to completely dismiss any spiritual shenanigans outright. A bit like Scully in the X-Files really, albeit season 6-7ish rather than season 1-2ish.

All the ghost hunting programmes on television are pretty much complete nonsense though. Sticking a group of highly susceptible people in a pitch black room they've been told is haunted is only going to show how easily people can be influenced. All it takes is one person to say "Ooh, there's a funny atmosphere in here" and it'll plant that idea in the rest of the group's mind. It's less a ghost hunt and more an exercise in herd mentality or mass hysteria.

Meh, Peter Venkman had the right idea.

With the ones where it's only about personal experiance, the only times I enjoy it is when it's celebrities doing it...watching them scream in fear is so fun, if only they'd get Hannah Montana to do one xD

But yeah, Derek Acorah is just hilarious to watch, I watched 1 episode of 'Paranormal Egypt' and stopped, because if you watch more than 1 episode with him in a show, it's obvious.

Ghost Hunters is actually quite good. I saw one where they checked a so-called haunted place out and they did check things, and reserved judgement. It was done in a much more reasonable and believable manner.

Acorah is rotten. Remember him struggling to figure out, um, know when the person possesing him was born. :lol:

One time he went to a lighthouse that was meant to be haunted by a man....Yvette made it clear he knew nothing about the place or it's history

He picked up several women and didn't even sense a man.

Yeah....

I've been there all sorts of times, ranging from stupidly early to stupidly late. Even on halloween.

Give it time, he's got nearly 20 years eating on you :lol:

I'm not trying to catch up, I'm trying to get down to M! =3
try going there and taking the piss out of whoever is meant to haunt there...on one show I watched a while ago, these two women were in an old castle, joking about one of the old woman residants, and as one of them left they pushed down the stairs, and when they looked, no one was there....

That's why I watch what I say in my house.....I think she already broke my Freedom Gundam Model Kit (either that or it was my brother)
