The pilot episode of a series should be the episode that sells. It should set up audience expectations for what they can expect when they tune in. This episode does a great job of just that. The first and last story here were actually extremely creepy, and supposedly true tales. The first one about the ghost in the mirror is especially creepy. Unfortunately this show, which deals primarily with stories of the supernatural does not strike me as an extremely credible measure of reality. Most of the true stories in this series in general cite the same researcher as its source and I cannot independently verify any of the "true" stories presented here.
If anyone knows of the a third party source collaborating any of the stories I'd be glad if you could post them in the notes section for this episode. Even if the show's factuality is in dispute, still fun to watch. Guilty late-night pleasure.
