Haven't seen the show, but i have heard of haunted objects before,though I would never want to own one. Yeah, i could  live with a haunted house,especially it it was one that was built 100 years ago or so and has only had my ancestors and their descendents living there.Though if the activity was nasty wouldn't do so. But how this guy decides the objects are haunted i have no idea.

I watched all of season 1 with mixed feelings. I decided to give it a few more episodes before I call it total crap. I have S2 episodes piling up on the DVR but cannot seem to bring myself to pull the trigger and watch them. Apparently I should just delete them, eh?

Yes, indeed you should. I've found that your first inclination is usually the one to follow. lol :tu:

John Zaffis is just exploiting the current paranormal trend for a quick buck and some television exposure. Pure unabashed hokum.

What is the name of that gadget that allows the restless spirits to communicate "word" to the investigators? LoL, pure bull.

Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

LOL! Brilliant idea ... but too bad they are from different networks... darn it!

I beg to differ. He is NO sham. Objects can be haunted as if this is news. Generally speaking, the owner figures it out all by himself pretty darn quick. Some keep it, most don't, but it's as real as you and me. If he makes  abuck off the stuff, who gaf really. If it's really haunted I'd put it on ebay I couldn't care less.

Yes, objects 'can' be haunted. That is his angle. He took the line and ran with it.

I think it is an insult to my intelligence for them to pass it off that they always have those kinds of results, and always find something to prove their 'own' research.

I don't mean that as a personal insult to John or his team, more towards the production that goes on with the show. File this one strictly under  entertainment.

I don't know if I'm going off on a limb, but I've often wondered if perhaps he's staged objects. Meaning, he found an object before going to a location and hid it, only to 'discover' it later. He always seems to find neat antiques everywhere he goes, some that the owners didn't even realize were there.

Funny, I have also thought it abit too coincidental to always find these hidden antiques... that perhaps he brings in these objects with himself and resumes to "discovers" them.

I could be wrong, of course, but it also struck me as odd when he found objects buried beneath locations. It always seemed as if they were never too deep from the surface. In a recent episode he found an object within a museum. The owner seemed taken back that he had found the object and obviously had never seen it. It seemed so fishy to me that a man who had been passionate about the location and preservation of the place never came across this object..but suddenly John strolls in and finds it in one night? Hmm. The object, according to the owner, would 'not fit' in with the rest of the collection and had no ties, so he gave it up.

I could be wrong, like I said, but I can't help but be suspicious about these types of programs.

I like the show especially the last one in a theater, where that tape of a women was uncovered on a corner time stone.  They got a picture of the ghost going right to it when laid on a table on the stage.
