How do the dull ones last so long? I just watched an episode of Ghosts Hunters and after all these years the only changes I noticed were a couple new faces, a couple new gadgets and dust masks.
It is still the exact same with the exact same results. It is sooo boring. Even if you were into ghosts how can this be entertaining? You don't even have to watch it to guess what will happen.
And it isn't funny like some bf shows to even laugh at.
And it has been on for soo soo long. I'm completely surprised it has lasted this long. For entertainment it's no good and for ghost hunting they need to develop some new strategies. Shocked expressions and exclamations do not a show make...imo. The places look nice and creepy on the outside but inside they are nothing but a noise or shadow or voice (or two). Repeated in every episode.
Couldn't they at least have encountered an evil entity by now that we too can see for more than half a second and that wrecks havoc with the team? :w00t:

That's because crypids have become Fodder for social media and really have little to do with actually find the hard evidence. Look at slick Rick Dyer, the man in an internet star and he's a know, out of the closet, faker. Yet, he has a significant following. People will attach themselves to a rock and willingly be hurled off a cliff because they want to believe.

Yeah, I never expect any hard evidence from these shows, but after so many years you'd think even hard core believers would tire of Ghost Hunters.

One funny comment at Television Without Pity is that the alleged ghosts and monsters on these shows are not nearly as scary as the weirdos who investigate them.

On that theme there were also comments that show how these shows can be insulting to viewers in a more serious way. "Paranormal Witness" had one episode about a supposedly haunted house where horrific crimes had recently been discovered. We're talking murder, torture, women being held as sex slaves, and the most depraved human behavior you can imagine. Many viewers were revolted that this show casually went over the real human suffering that had taken place there and instead focused on chasing ghosts. With living monsters like that in society, how could anyone care about the paranormal?
