Ok, ok, let me first start off by saying that I get a kick out of the Ghost Adventures cast. Not because they are good paranormal investigators. I enjoy the show because they are so bad. They are to paranormal investigations what the movie “Plan Nine From Outer Space” is to scifi. It’s so bad its good.
I spent the evening chatting with the Ghost Hunting Theories folks and watching GA at Gettysburg. I liked some of the comments that Autumn made about Zak and the boys.
It was only a matter of time before the GA cast followed all of the other paranormal shows to Gettysburg. Zak, Nick, and Aaron dressed up like Federal troops and fought off the Rebs in dramatic fashion. I had to wonder if it was too politically incorrect to play a confederate. I guess that Zak so enjoyed playing as a Civil War soldier that he kept his Yankee kepi.
The guys investigated the Soldiers’ National Museum, the Jenny Wade House, and the engine house. At one location, they had a stone allegedly thrown. I wondered if the show was turning into “Most Haunted” who are well known for their stone throwing hoaxes. They also managed to collect some evps; although, most weren’t clear to me. One evp allegedly said “I’m pregnant” but I wonder if that term would have used by a woman of that era.
The team also used that odd voice synthesis device. In theory a spirit changes energy to generate speech. The biggest problem that I have with that is how does a spirit know to do that? The device is pre-loaded with words. What if those “pre-loaded” words have nothing to do with what I, as a spirit, really wanted to say? I think that it is little more than the magic flashlight used by the Ghost Hunters cast or the ouija board used by the Most Haunted cast.
From time to time the GA crew finds something interesting. However; most of the show is really the personalities. I guess the best part of the show was Zak reacting to being touched on the butt. Autumn quipped that it might be Zak’s incubus.
Watch your butt Zak ! Your incubus may still be following you.
