Paranormal Cops – Meagan’s Ghost – S01E05

A concerned homeowner contacts CPD when her house guest is choked in her sleep by an unseen force. The team quickly finds an unusual connection between the victim and a deceased girl who used to be best friends with the home owner’s daughter.

The basis for the investigation is that Nicole stays over at her friend Britney’s house, but feels that the spirit of a friend who died is also staying over. Britney had a friend Meagan who passed away recently and Nicole feels she may be coming back to show she isn’t happy with Nicole staying in the same room she used to sleep in.

It’s a pretty sad story really, but when it comes to the evidence there isn’t much to say. The one piece they capture is a tag moving on a bear’s ear, but thankfully the video specialist Scott debunks it as just being at an odd angle. Common sense prevails!

In the end Ron doesn’t feel there is any paranormal activity in the house and that the family doesn’t have anything to fear. I don’t want to be rude or disrespectful, but did these families just need some closure to cope with these terrible events? Maybe they needed to know Meagan wasn’t trapped there. As Meagan’s father puts it, he’s not sure if a personal experience would make things better, or worse.

Well, I suppose if it gives them closure we should all be happy.

What’s with all the secrecy?

Ok, so I have a few things gnawing at me about the Ghost Hunters, but I feel these are issues people need to keep in mind about these guys as the new season is about to start up. I think it speaks volumes to their honesty and integrity. Or perhaps lack thereof.

For years Jason and Grant have refused to discuss the paranormal experience that got them involved in ghost hunting in the first place, yet they expect everyone around them to be open and honest about the paranormal with them.

If you recall, Josh Gates asked Jason and Grant point blank what paranormal experience brought them into the field and they replied it was personal. They even explained they never discussed it with their wives. So you’re a paranormal investigator who won’t talk about your own personal experiences with the paranormal? Interesting.

Not to miss a beat on making some extra money however, Jason and Grant write a book about being a ghost hunter and reveal their big secret within it’s pages. But wait! They scarcely go into detail about what their paranormal experience was! So you have to pay to hear about it, but then not hear about it. Classy!

It would seem that if you want people to be open to the idea of the paranormal you would relate your own personal story to show that it can happen to anyone and that there’s nothing to be embarrassed about. Way to lead by example guys!

"In this book you learn how TAPS was formed, and how Jason and Grant first met. One question that has been asked is why both Jason and Grant got into this field of paranormal research. What happened, or what kind of experience leads them to investigate the Paranormal. Jason Hawes does explain what his experience was that lead him to paranormal research, and although Grant Wilson does not go into detail about his experience, there are some details revealed about what transpired to lead him to this field of research."

Certainly makes you want to trust these guys doesn’t it?

Jumping to Paranormal State, Ryan says his experiences with the supernatural terrified him yet he won’t discuss any aspect of that experience. Further, he gives the stink eye to anyone who holds back information from him during his interrogation, I mean interview with clients. Yet he is holding back every time we watch this show. And if you watched the Western State episode he has a tirade because of how personal this is to him, yet even Sergey, who is one of his best friends and has been on the team from the beginning only knows a little of what brought Ryan to the paranormal.

And finally Zak from Ghost Adventures held back and gave himself this air of mystery about his experiences, but at least he didn’t take years to say what happen. However he’s been less than forthcoming with all the details instead trying to build suspense over his experience and work it into a show – which just aired recently.

These guys are complete hypocrites. They want to keep their lives private while they make their clients lives public. It’s been five years for Jason and Grant, four years for Ryan and three years for Zak, why is it taking so long for these guys to be honest with us?

Have they actually had a paranormal experience or does that just sound better for the show?

What happened to that Ghost Hunters Live DVD?

Another thing that has been gnawing at me slightly about the Ghost Hunters is, what ever happened to that Fort Delaware Halloween episode? You know the one I’m talking about. The one where Grant gets pulled in all sorts of directions by some unseen force. The one that has caused all the controversy for the Ghost Hunters. The one that’s been spliced up and analyzed all over YouTube. Well my question is, why can’t you buy it? Both the Waverly Hills Sanatorium and Stanley Hotel full length investigations are available, so why isn’t this one? We obviously had to wait a year for them to come out for the next Halloween, but the time has come and gone for the Fort Delaware DVD to land in stores.

How come Jason, Grant and SyFy don’t want to release it? Are they concerned with releasing the DVD in tact and having people pick it apart? Would they prefer to leave that part out but if they do it will certainly seal the deal that they’re faking evidence? Is it their intent to simply act like this investigation never happened and maybe people will forget about it and the Ghost Hunters won’t lose face?

It just seems very odd to me that they release the previous two investigations and skip right over the one that seemed to cause so much trouble for them. Do they plan to skip this next one as well? I guess Jason’s famous words of putting their evidence out there and letting people decide for themselves isn’t what he really meant at all.

Ghost Adventures – Group Investigation

I’m not sure if this is from an episode in the upcoming season or a special group investigation, but it looks like Zak, Nick and Aaron have a whole slew of guest investigators with them. They’ve spread themselves out to cover a pretty large area, and then they get some off EVP recordings. Again, the music overlay is annoying, and it sounds pretty staticy. But it’s the last one that gets everybody stirred up.
