They aren't there to gather evidence..., 6 October 2008
Author: chevymangreg1989 from United States

If you have read a lot of bad reviews on it, you might notice that most of those reviews have to do with the lack of evidence shown on TV. I think that this show compared to other ghost shows, i.e. Ghost Hunters, Most Haunted, is a nice fresh look on paranormal investigations. Instead of just going in to gather evidence and prove whether or not a location is haunted or if the clients are fakes, they go in to help a client. They try to relieve pain and suffering, offer counseling, and try to find a way out for clients and their 'friends.' So if you want to watch a ghost program that aims to show the viewer evidence, watch Ghost Hunters, or if you want to watch a show that involves a client feeling relieved about a horrifying haunting, Paranormal State is for you. And being a fan of all three mainstream ghost programs, Ghost Hunters, Most Haunted, and Paranormal State, each has its own atmosphere. Most Haunted is more of an experience show, having a large group of investigators to go in and show you a 'haunted location' and show you what they found. Ghost Hunters is an analytical program, trying to base whether a location is haunted based on video, audio, and personal evidence. Paranormal State, as I stated earlier is a program going in to help a family needing help in experiencing a haunting. I hope you enjoyed this comment and maybe noticed the same differences I noticed. Happy Ghostshow hunting!
