Great stuff!
4 June 2007 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Its so refreshing to see a TV program which shows how paranormal phenomena really do happen. There are so many credulous, uncritical treatments of ghosts, ESP, and other supernatural events and so few that use skepticism to really examine what's happening.

This could have been even better, because it was made apparent at a couple of points that it was all a trick, but it was still very well done, and people who watched it at the same time as me who are a bit less skeptical than me were totally taken in until the end!

I will recommend this to anyone who believes in superstitious events to finally get a look at the other side of the story, and I want to see more of this sort of thing myself!
