No, that's another show. This one is new.  :)

I am anxious to see the types of equipment they use for their investigations. They allegedly have a trailer full of equipment they use for evidence analysis. After looking at their website, I am having difficulty believing their anything more than "Ghost Adventures" with a Texas drawl.

Okay okay.. How about they rename the show and called it "JUMPING THE GHOSTSHARK WITH MEL AND ANDY"?
Sounds interesting...Go on.

That's bad, Tim.  ;D

Anyway, I've been surfing their website and learning a thing or two about Everyday Paranormal. Not sure what to think. They don't portray themselves as a serious paranormal research group. They haven't been around for very long, and from what little information I have been able to find, they haven't published any earth shattering new theories to advance the field. And they actually charge people to sign up for their forums.

I'm not psychic, but I'm getting a negative "vibe" already...

Charge people to sign up for the forums.....Damn it! Why didn't we think of that?
They should rename their forums and call it the graveyard because it is going nothing but the dead.

Lord of the Rings Tracy. The way is shut as in the place for the dishonored dead.  Like the Paranormal Forums who charge money to join them. They are both places that are dead.

Yeah, the Klinge brothers really came off flat. No personality at all.

Three episodes have aired, and I'm still intrigued by some of the experiments conducted by EP. I liked the Tesla Coil they used in Tombstone. Not too impressed by the "evidence" they captured, but their field experiments keep me tuning in every Tuesday night.  :)

I agree; MH is really hard to watch.

Scariest Places on Earth, however, is pretty cool.  :)

I love the hokey narration by Zelda Rubenstein. The movie Poltergeist really made her voice a horror icon, didn't it?

Alright... we need to make a little schedule with all the available Paravision shows (that was my lame attempt at a new term   ;D) that are on during the week.  Sadly, I only know when Ghost Hunters is on, and I'm growing tired of the drama.  The last episode I watched... well, I can't get that time back!   :-\

Soo..... when and what channel can we find more shows?   :)

The show is very fast moving (slick).
Definitely entertainment oriented.
In their episode in Chicago, I thought their use a of a machine to read auras/moods did not warrant the conclusion: that a change in aura color comes from a ghost or event imprint. Never mind they were yelling and screaming... whose aura/mood wouldn't change? But to them : Dang... it was a ghost! 
Allot of details are left out of the filming, the viewer isn't always sure what  protocols were used.
But this is just my opinion.

I'm going to have to see the show to make up my mind.
I'm thinking that the show is something like mythbusters or isn't it?

I've only seen 2 episodes, but there has been no debunking on ghostlab.

I like the cut of your opinion's jib, Debra.  :D  Once again, resorting to hyperbole and gimmicks such as "extreme ghost hunting" demonstrates just how much these shows are NOT about making a name for yourself in paranormal investigating, but rather about aspiring to a "reality" TV career.  If the show makes it to another season (and it won't, so I'm not worried) we'll start seeing other TV reality "stars" turning out for the episodes.  Not that Ghost Hunters would ever do that. <cough>pro wrestlers<cough-cough>Destination Truth<cough>. ::|

Cue voice-over:
Next time, on Ghost Lab . . . The crew hot dog it with Tiffany "New York" Pollard and go to work at a paranormally active Wienerschnitzel . . . blah blah blah.
If you want to end your misery, start enjoying it, because there's nothing the universe begrudges more than our enjoyment.

I just saw a episode of Ghost Lab.
I like their lab but to what I have seen they can't conduct a proper baseline sweep worth a poop. They take pictures but don't document sources of high EMF in rooms. Nice Narrator from Deadliest Catch. Rocket Scientists they are not. I wonder if the Ghost Lab is also a toy box for All Terrain Vehicles when the crew want to investigate Sand dunes of Glamis. I hope they learn to step it up.
Sounds interesting...Go on.

Tim, I also watched Ghost Lab last night.  I have previously seen a couple minutes of it, but never stopped to watch, until last night, and I fully agree.  They have a whole lot of fun toys.  I even had a dream last night that someone just gave me their little cell phone sized FLIR device, which was awesome, but I think I woke up before I got to put it to good use.  Damn!   ::|  Nice toys, bad style. 

From separate sides of the room, "Did you hear that breathing?  Yeah, right here. No, it was right it was by me, not you.  Oh, well there's a lot of pipes 'n' sh!t down here!"  These guys did come straight outta Glamis!!!

But again.... NICE Freakin' equipment!!!!   ;D
