Ghost Hunters Season 3 Part 1

Ghost Hunters Season 3 Part 1

I have to say I think I’m becoming addicted to this damned show. I jumped ahead and bought Season 3. There are some stores about Arizona and Tombstone which sounded really neat, plus I have been to the Bird Cage Theater, Bisbee and the OK Corral. I was also really interested in the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park Colorado because I used to live there. And to top it all off was the added benefit of the Irish hauntings which sounded really wild.

The TAPS team has definitely upgraded the apparatus with bigger IR camera, thermal imaging, bigger monitors, more computers and other nifty gadgets. But they haven’t lost that humorous edge that makes this show worth watching. Brian is still his goofball self with “Dude” spewing forth every other sentence and Steve trying to be serious as he takes his EVP readings and searches for cold spots. You don’t watch this show for ghosts since up to this point I don’t think they’ve done a single thing to prove there are spirits or entities. You watch the show because of the crazy dynamic these guys have together. Jason and Grant forge ahead as the voice of reason trying to find evidence of spirits or debunk them if they can.

Steve and Brian provide the comic relief by bumping into walls, jumping at their own shadows and the constant swearing which has to be bleeped out. They seem to know what their doing, but their approach is more like Dr. Venkman in Ghostbusters rather than serious scientists. But the show is all in good fun and it really is fun to watch. I always get a good laugh out of watching this series and since I watched the first Season on DVD I keep coming back for more.

I hate the way they release the discs in Parts and the cases they use are stupid – they stack 3 discs on top of each other instead of using the standard slim packs which hold 2 discs each. I have to say I’m a fan of the show and will get Season 2 in the very near future (NCIS Season 4 takes precedence). Also the price is a little high considering the production value and cost.

These guys are fun to watch and the kids should get a big kick out of their antics. Fun stuff to watch and hopefully they will be on the air for quite a few more years.

Sci-Fi Channel s Ghost Hunters introduces Jason and Grant plumbers by day ghost hunters by night! Ghost Hunters a one-hour weekly docu-soap follows a group of real-life ghostbusters as they investigate haunted houses throughout the country. Plumbers by trade Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson head-up a group of intrepid souls that are far from the usual collection of be-spectacled Ph.D.s. They re ordinary everyday people with an interest in getting to the bottom of your otherworldly disturbances. Every week Jason Grant and their team investigate a new case from poltergeists who throw a child’s toys around an attic to a lighthouse whose late keeper still welcomes visitors. This team of moonlighting ghost hunters are our first and last defense against uninvited paranormal visitations.

I just finished watching the first season of Ghost Hunters featuring Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson and I have to say that although they have yet to prove (or even capture) and real evidence of the paranormal, they are wildly entertaining to watch. In the spirit of American Chopper, each episode is more centered on the bickering and the drama associated with the team member rather than the supernatural. But this juvenile squabbling is actually pretty entertaining and does make me keep watching.

Jason and Grant take their tasks seriously, perhaps a little too seriously at time while Brian and Steve seem like a couple of Frat Boys on the loose in someone else’s home. Brian with his constant, “Dude! What was that?!” and Steve with his confused and glazed over look. But over time you grow to love them.

The show isn’t scary and there is nothing chilling or suspenseful about it. It’s pretty much they show up on the scene, turn on a bunch of video cameras and walk around in the dark trying to get the ghosts to speak. Out of the 10 episodes I’ve seen they haven’t come up with anything that would make you a believer. They do visit some cool sights such as the lighthouse, a penitentiary and an armory where the sound guy gets smacked in the face by something (perhaps the most paranormal show thus far).

Unsolved Mysteries Ghosts gives more credible accounts of the paranormal, but this show shouldn’t be discounted. It is funny and entertaining and if you can deal with the cheese factor it’s worth watching. The cost is a little high ($20 for 10 episodes) and future episodes are overpriced as well, but it still makes for an entertaining weekend of viewing.
