3 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of the paranormal and ghosthunting is close to my heart. This show is entertaining enough t watch, you just have to do it with the knowledge that at the end of every show you will likely be subject to a dose of religion. Not always Christian as some have suggested, but almost every time, some religious connotation ends the show. And that's okay. Afterall, if you're watching the show about invisible beings interacting with the living how's that any different from most religions? Andwer; it's not. They've used native American, Christian, Hawaiian, African, catholic religions to conclude episodes so you can't say there's Christian overtones, but you can say religious overtones. All that aside, the show is worth watching if your into ghosts and psychics and this sort of thing. As for the cast, it features Ryan, the overly dramatic leader; Elfie,an odd looking woman who can research with the best of them, but goes out of the way to make her odd appearance stand out by detailing it with piercings and such; heather a capable, but ridiculously quiet member of the team. If she would speak out more I truly believe the show would be easily 40 percent better; Serge, a techie who despite looking aikenish, seems to know what he's doing with the equipment until it's actually time to film the ghostly activity. (Note: And this is true of every ghost hunting show out there. They all have cameras following the 'researchers' around. It should be them holding the cameras. We should never see there faces during the investigative stage. Afterall, if all we're seeing during they're "personal experiences" is their reaction to whatever they've seen, then what's the point. If they wore hats with minicams attached they might actually 'catch' activity on film. Instead it's Tupac time ((All eyez on me)) a very pointless way to conduct an investigation. Afterall weren't they there to catch ghosts?) Next in the cast is the eye-candy, Katrina. I can watch her beauty on screen 24/7. IMHO they should have her in every scene. Talent wise she can ask scripted questions, but little else. Finally there's the guest psychic, shaman, wiccan priestess. Usually we get "chip Coffey". This guy rocks. He's definitely legit. He knows with certainty what is going on at every case withing moments of his arrival. Frankly, I think he should have his own show. Other guests have not had his presence and in some cases seem downright hokey. Eitherway, the show is entertaining and I'll continue to watch it. Not with enthusiasm, but rather because there's nothing better on TV at 2 AM.
