This show is probably more for people who think ghosts exsist, if you don't I guess maybe you could watch and see if after you do.
This show begins small, but has become quite large they even have a base in their town. These guys may not be professionals and are plumbers, but how did they get all the fancy stuff to use.
Anyway quite a few of the episodes they've caught some pretty freaky stuff and it's provable. Such as the haunted light house, and the prison to even some of the people getting scratched out of thin air.
Ghost Hunters deserves a 10, actually 11 but it only goes to 10. It's one of the best reality shows out there right now and it only keeps getting better. My wife and I enjoy this show cause the paranormal excites and intrests us both. Sometimes they don't really catch anything but when they do, it's well worth the wait. My wife was the first to watch this show and then she kept talking about it and I got intrested right away. We Watch it every Wednesday night and anytime they have their marathons. It's a great show and worth watching!
The show has its ups and downs but the majority of it is up. There are some episodes I yawn through and then some that I am sitting on the edge of my seat. I can imagine though that this must be how it feels to go on the investigations... some highs and some lows.
I can appreciate the research that is put into the paranormal but I would like to see them show some of the more common ways of getting rid of the spirits haunting the homes.
I think it would be cool to see them take a place that they feel is haunted and really work with it and see if they can develop ways of getting rid of the haunting. That would be a great element to the show.
In was kind of iffy about Ghost Hunters when I first saw it, but once I started...It was like being hooked on a Peanut Butter and Crack Sandwhich!!! Now grant it, they do not catch something on every show...and this should be expected in this field. But when they do...Oh Man...its something that will make your skin crawl at times!! This show is mainly sheer entertainment for me, but I also have a personal interest in the paranormal as well. I have witnessed somethig in my life I cannot explain. So I guess I am looking for answers. This show is very informative..especially on the type of equipment they use. I hate Reality shows, but this is one that is very well done. And I hope it stays around for a good while.
I Love this show wish they had updated episodes more often and wish they would get more evidence. I Love this show wish they had updated episodes more often and wish they would get more evidence.

"Plumbers by day, Ghost Hunters by night...sounds like a comic book." Yes I said it. (You know it also could be a new Joss Whedon show)
No really, its a documentary style show on real life ghost investigaters. Sure we've show all those other shows that were so obsurd that you can't beleive it but this show is not that. This group goes in the investigation with the mind set to disprove the haunting. This makes them think through the experiance and expain it in a practical way. If they can't explain it they then say "Maybe, it's paranormal." What is great is that even if they don't find something crediable, you still learn something.
Wether you believe in ghosts or not, this is a welcome reality television show about unreality. I like that they try to incorporate characters in the mix, it doesn't fit with the show. They should just stick to what they do best: finding some really freaky sh*t that I didn't know existed.
i didnt believe in ghosts until i watched this show. its great how they try to dubunk them and not hurry up and say its haunted. unlike other shows where they just walk into the house and be like \\\"i can feel the spirits\\\" and junk like that. shows shows shouldn be on TV.
The show is entertaining, but also just plain stupid. It's like putting "real world" together with ghost hunting... 85% of each episode is just talking, bitching, whining, argueing, and asking too many questions. "Oh I wonder what that was, rewind that..." -Heard that in almost every episode. They aren't really even using the best video editing equipment out there... The only really really good episode I loved, was the prison episode where a figure gets up and runs down the hall. That kinda creepy stuff was entertaining, but that was like 10% of the show. The rest is of course almost nothing except a soup opera with cocky guys argueing and ordering.
An interesting twist on the reality show genre. The members of TAPS are interesting and they have actually shot some very interesting footage. They are professional in their analysis and are not easily fooled. The interpersonal dynamics are often humorous and complelling. If your looking for proof that ghosts exist, this is the show for you.
The first time that I watched this show it automatically grabbed my attention. I have always believed in the spirit world and this show proves that there is more out there then others care to believe. Grant and Jason along with their crew do an incredible job at debunking many so called haunted places. They also have proven that ghosts or spirits do exist. For all those out there that feel there is another realm of existence and that we are not alone, then this show is for you. If you are watching for the first time, then remember to have an open mind and if you are a faithful watcher as I am, then you will appreciate this show even more. Hats off to Jason and Grant and please keep up the awesome investigating.
Ghost Hunters is just great. I have watched them from season 1 and have season 1 on DVD. Even if you are not a believer, some of the things that have happened to the guys on the show have to make you scratch your head and wonder. Especially the episode at the Crescent Hotel with the civil war soldier appearing on the thermal scan camera. It's a show that keeps me watching whenever they give me episodes to watch new ones and repeats! I say keep this show coming. You don't have to worry about the writing getting dull after a few seasons. There is plenty of material out there for them to research.
I thought this show was grait. I enjoid this show and the crews aproche to unusawal things is unique and awsome and I totaly love it! Try ing to disprove somthing if theres somthing you can't disprove no matter what than there is profe that there could be somthing there! I like it and the set up is well done to and I love how they show bothe sides of there lifes! Plumer and ghost hunter!
This show provides an in depth look at the field of ghost hunting and give the viewer information on the equipment used. Definitely a show to keep watching over and over again. Definitely one show that I will remember for the longest, longest time and want to keep watching again
I stumbled across this show a few months ago and was hooked. The Ghost Hunters go out of their way to disprove any "supernatural" happenings that they may come across but are open minded enough to admit when they can't explain a happening away. Sometimes it's boring to see nothing, but at least they aren't obviously making up events and occurences like other shows are rumored to do. I do wish the Hunters would spend more than a few hours in some places but due to budget restraints they can't. So that nitpick aside, I recommend this show!
So many hunters/paranormal shows go into to try and PROVE a haunting which is easy. This group tries to disprove and be honest about their findings without trying to boost popularity in a place or business. A MUST see for all those into paranormal activit
Amongst the daily interworkings of th TAPS people, they occasionally get a fantastic boost of paranormal activity. Although, getting Jason to say something is haunted is like pulling teeth, it is much easier than it used to be. Well, it may not be easier, they are just getting better cases. YES.. there is drama.. YES there is more to the show than just investigations and analysis. It is reality TV.. but it is the most honest reality TV you will ever witness.
There are alot of holes in their investigative techniques. They never seem to find any conclusive evidence of parinormal activity. This show is basicaly considered a joke by everyone I know.
Despite its flaws it's THE BEST parinormal show I have ever seen. The TAPS teem is profesional and scientific. This is not one of those shows with crazies contantly claiming that everywhere is haunted. They anylize everything they find and even subject it to the critics befor they come up with a conclution.
If your even mildly interested in the parinormal forget the others this is the show for you!
I am one who does not like reality television. However, when I caught an episode during first season, I was surprised. It's more like they are taking you under their wing as an investigator. They teach you about what they are doing, and take you along on some of their spooky haunts.
If you are someone who is into the paranormal, then you will deffinately be interested in this show. Some people may claim that it's faked. We'll never know. But tv it supposed to be entertaining, and this is just what it is, entertaining!
Not only is it fun to watch but it will scare the pants off of you (and with me, that's quite a difficult task!).
So, take at least an hour out of your buys life, to give Ghost Hunters a try on Wednesday Nights on the Sci-Fi Channel! If you don't have the Sci-Fi Channel, find someone who does, and have them tape it for you! You WON'T be disappointed!
I absolutely love this show, I loved the fact on the show they get alittle bit of history of the city they are visiting, Love the fact that when watching it i got chills up and down my body and my hair was standing on end, all around its a great show that is a new favorite of mine
Beyond doubt the best of the best of "Reality" TV. The T.A.P.S. team are professional and believable and they put their evidence out on the net for all to challenge. That brings the scare factor up 10 points.
This show is addictive. The scares are there up front and personal with no prisoners taken. The T.A.P.S. team puts it on the line, or in this case the tube and the net, for all to see and either believe or not. All you have to do is check the evidence and see if you can “debunk” it. That is what they try to do which makes the evidence that much more convincing. They don't try to prove some place is haunted, they try to show it is not.
I am a fan of ghost hunters and shows like it and this is becoming one of the better ones. Glad to see that they now have a good team of investigators and much more equipment than the first episodes. I would just like them to capture more ghosts than they have. Sometimes I get a little disappointed that they don't pick up more with all their equipment. Jason comes off as a big shot which i personally don't care for but Grant is just fine. The team of people they have assembled is great and hope to see more of this show.
Well what can I say abou the show that has not already been said a hundred times before. It is not really reality it is more of a documentary show with characters that you get to know after time. They are blue collar workers and you can tell that every week. Its like they want to confront a ghost and tell it to take a hike because they were trying to get a good nights sleep Very original and informative. Its not everyday that you are asked to disprove something like the afterlife. Its a good cast and lively characters. I hope its stays around a while.
I absolutely loathe even the idea of reality television, to me it's an oxymoron. TV's not supposed to be real, it's TV. Except for the news. I will, however, admit this as being an exception to the rule. It is one of my favorite things to come from reality television, followed closely by Kelly Clarkson (another story, another time.) I highly reccomend "Ghosthunters." It's a fun show to watch!
my fave show !!! i love all the guys they really seem to know what they are talking about and i just read somebodys message and think its good they dont show ghost all the time if they would it would be like everyother show around lol a fake
this show is the best show on the air it is so fun to learn about different places and there history i have learned so much from this show and cant wait till everyweek to sit down and watch it again i just hope this show stays on forever th
This show is fantastic. I just recently started watching it and am impressed so far. I love to learn about paranormal activity, plus the history of the places these guys travel. I'm thrilled when they find something of course, but even when they don't, I learned a little bit more about different places, or even something brand new.
I decided to give this show another chance tonight, so I watched an episode with the Winchester Mansion and the Queen Mary, both in California. Like every other episode I've seen, it went very much like this:
-Fake meeting where they all meet in a room to trade some obviously scripted dialog, saying "so today we're going to go here," then they leave the room. Good meeting.
-They drive. Jason and Grant chat about how they are looking forward to this particular location, or how they need to be extra efficient, or something similarly mundane.
-They get there, introduce themselves, get the grand tour, set up equipment. New Guy is too slow. There are probably other efficiency issues, usually centered around New Guy. This leads to more mundane banter between Jason and Grant about how New Guy should be faster.
-They film stuff. Someone looks over and goes "Oh my God!" or "What was that?" Cut to commercial.
-Back from commercial, either what they thought they heard was nothing, or wasn't recordable (audio or video), or is simply not brought up again.
-They collect equipment, review tapes. Another "Wait! Go back! What the hell is that?!" Cut to commercial, usually with a zoom-in on the monitor, which is not showing the actual frames in question.
-Back from commercial. The reveal. "Yeah, so we didn't see anything. Oh wait, there was some dust."
-Owner insists that property is haunted.
(Note: tonight's episode had a bit of a twist. They claimed they saw a bed being unmade on video before commercial when they went to change a full tape. I assumed the tape had run out right before, so they conveniently didn't catch it. On the contrary, it was on tape, but revealed to be a hoax by an overzealous guest aboard the Queen Mary. Definitely a different way of being non-evidence than I thought it would be.)
Sorry if I offend any fans, but I really can't stand watching this. The scripted, idle banter is perhaps the worst. And I don't even mind obviously scripted banter necessarily. Just look at Mythbusters. Great show, obvious scriptage. Then there's the fact that they never find anything cool. It's always dust or a bug or "we don't know." I guess they saw something interesting at a prison; I never saw that episode.
Always interesting and I love how they will rule out just about everything before making a confirmation on something being a ghost. For anyone who doesn't believe will believe after watching this show. Real men and woman researching ghosts. Keep them coming every week.
10 Rating. A plus all the way
I really like the personalities on this show. I am kind of disappointed at times that there aren't a whole lot of scary (ghosty) parts, but the hunters keep me interested anyway.
I especially like the way JH & GW refer to the odd happenings in their investigations as "above normal", as I am not exactly a believer in the whole "ghost" thing. However, I enjoy watching the show and I am definately a loyal viewer! Keep those spooky episodes coming!
This show needs some improvement. Seriously, some parts are annoying and time-consuming.
Things unnecessary: (1) when investigating a potential object of interest, an effect shows up for a few frames along with an annoying noise--highly unprofessional and irritating when you're trying to watch the show. They do this all the time, and it corrupts the investigation. That's got to go. (2) The briefings should only take up a little on the tape, not 15-20 minutes like on the first episodes of the new season. This eats up the hour of programming, and the show could be knocked down to a half-an-hour anyway, which would allow for more episodes, and keep viewers interested. (3) The evidence-searching takes up another 10 minutes per site. This is pointless. They should just cut to the chase and get whatever inconclusive evidence there is the homeowners.
But this show isn't all bad.
I'm still fairly interested, and I'm willing to see how this series pans out. I enjoy seeing weird things happen, and people providing theories about how it happened. I like being able to ake up my mind about things and debate the existence of these objects in reality. Nevertheless, I find a lot of fat to be cut out from this show, but there is still a lot of good steak to be eaten yet.
I, for one, believe in ghosts. And watching this show has only proven they exist more and more! My mom is a skeptic but this show has placed a lot of evidence. The only problem is that they mix ghosts with an almost reality show. They shoyld just stick with the evidence! ;)
