Watched a marathon on The Travel Channel. What the heall it has to do with travel is more of a mystery. All five shows I watched were exactly the same show. Haunted house, a detective investigates the history, a young pyschic tours the house. She "sees" the dead but doesn't talk to them. She always sees an evil gremlin like creature and the the dead always want to hurt or kill the family. She doesn'tt even help to clear the house, she gives the family all this bad news and bolts and leaves them to handle it. It's already in Season Four, who's watching this thing?
She's a loon, but can be a hoot to watch! Totally full of shit.
The really awesomely awful ghost show was 'Haunted Collector' on SyFy. This quack would tell people some item in their house (usually antique and valuable) was the source of their spirit infestation. Then he would offer to get rid of it for them (on the next Antiques Roadshow) to rid them of their ghosts.
I think it's hilarious she sees these dead and demons and then says YOU have to find a Shaman or a Native American Medicine Man... like they are in the phone book.
That show is so scripted.
Boy, has the Travel Channel turned into shit.
I worked for Travel Channel and with Samantha Brown, who is actually smart, nice, and cooler than she comes off on air. Our channel wasn't perfect, but once Scripps bought it it really turned into cheapo garbage. The ratings are terrible, even with all that supposed Food Network know-how that was supposed to turn everything around.
The same Food Network know-how that thought Paula Deen was a great idea?
All the so-called educational channels have gone to shit. History Channel airs 'Ancient Aliens', and 'The Bible' produced by a fundie who cast an Obama look-alike as Satan.
The ghost shows are the same each week. There's a couple, recently wed. It's the woman's second marriage, and she has a kid who has a strained relationship with the new dad. They buy a house that they can't really afford but it just seems too good to be true. It's a fixer upper and they decide to do the work themselves to save money, and they think it will bond them as a family. This results in everyone hating each other. Cue the ghost. Only the mother and/or the kid sees the ghost at first. New hubby wonders what the hell he got himself into, spends more time at the glory hole (err... I mean with his friends...). Eventually the hubby sees the ghost. Cue the psychic/shaman/priest. Burn some sage and/or shake some holy water out of that silver baby rattle thing (if it's a priest). To be rid of the ghost the family would have to forgive each other and come together as a family unit. Rinse and repeat next episode.
