    The show sucked. Totally staged. But hey maybe blame it on a Pukwudgie. Remember those? LOL. You would never hear Jason Hawes or Grant Wilson even say that word unless making a joke. These twerps actually investigated them. Its also a shame when they have to apply captions when Eilfie speaks because she mumbles so bad. And Chip is a D#@k

    The experts are dramatic idiots, probably from some drama class in a community college. The material is bullsh*t, the show is BORING, and the everysingle time used conclusion of YOU BE THE JUDGE is so old. When you catch something, show it on TV, until then, these are all attempts to catch or find something, which means they are nothing but failures. A show on how a bunch of idiots can't accomplish what they set out to do. Would ayone watch a football game that couldn;t be finished, or a race, or any sitcom that ended half way htrough. The only thing these people are successful at is getting some stupid, half witted TV execs to give gthem a time slot. Just solidifies my belief that there are so many people out there that should not be allowed to thinkn for themselves, never mind a nation of television viewers. LOSERS.....Go see if you can find my ghost sh*t in my toilet! I am positive something came out! Please I'll even give a reward!moreless
  • Like when..........

    Like when you have chip coffey or the older lady do the walk throughs Michelle is ok but, she doesn't get as much or explore it enough or something. Not the Michelle is bad but, just saying, ya know.
  • I feel this is the best paranormal show on TV. I watch every episode I can and cannot wait for the new ones. I truly believe they are all very dedicated to helping people who encounter the paranormal espicially Ryan Buell. At times I get very worriedmoreless

    about him because it would be very easy for a demon to jump into him if he let his guard down. What I love the most about this group compared to the others on tv is that they also care about the spirit that is lost between worlds and try to help them go where they are supposed to go especially the children. I know they are all going to school while they are doing this, but I hope that after they finish--they will go on with the paranormal and let us be a part of them.

  • read my review.

    I loved this show till i found some things out. The show leaves alot of footage on the cutting room floor, Even Paranormal Footage because its not "dramatic" enough. Chip coffey was one of my fav people on the show, but he's a fraud and a dick. Off camera he's foul mouthed and will tell the home owners how they should act, and his psychic power is BS. He's told Everything including names, activity, family history, historical stuff with the house and enything he needs to know by the producers. Read the section on about the show. its in the controversy section. Ryan and the producers make up their OWN story about the activity as they go, Regardless of what the owners said. I didn't want to believe it but i've literally watched every episode on netflix from season's 1-4 and when you watch a bunch of Eps. back to back you start to see that something's a little off. Alot of the paranormal stuff is when the owner's aren't around and could easily be done with fishing line, not seen on the constantly blurry, yet "Hi-Tech" and "state of the art" video equipment. My $99 digital Camera has better video quality than their's do! Anyway, I feel really bad about this. this was a fav show, but after i heard that michelle in the earlier seasons walked off because they were investigating a Real medium's house and she and the medium confronted Chip about being a fake and he cursed them horribly and threatened to sue and Ryan was too scared to step in and control his crew infront of His Clients, I realized he was a pud and chip an ass. The show is faked. Also one episode, shadow man, has a cold spot in it that is a six pack of beer put there by the crew, they knew it and still left it in the final cut. The owner, among many others, claims the activity is WORSE after they left. She began legal action against the show and A&E. Its too bad really. I wanted to believe in this show as much as anyone. but there are bunches of times that I can't figure out if what I'm hearing if EVP's or spooky sound Fx's added later. Then again, that's their goal. Sorry Paranormal State, but I will never watch you again.moreless
