Ok, my predictions for the “Amsterdamned” episode didn’t work out. Although, in my defense, I think my version of the show would have been better. GHI’s ratings continue to slip, this week they dropped to 1.234 million viewers. The ratings problem may cause the team to string together a series of “jump the shark” moments.
Was is the deal with Kris and Barry? Are the producers of the show going for a hinted romance to help stir up some ratings? Is Kris just flirting? Is this a professional way to act in front of a client? Are they going to announce their engagement at the end of the season?
I was disappointed to see that Susan didn’t morph into Derek Acorah this week. Perhaps those shots were edited out? Oh well, we still have a few more episodes for that to happen.
Case #1: Huiseen House, Netherlands
The location was interesting and I liked what I saw with the debunking. With a smaller location, they were able to make better use of their camera angles and caught the wind tunnel effect that had caused the chandelier to move. Barry played an ipad app that sounded like a piano ( in my best southern drawl I said era cues !!!) and they believed that they heard footsteps. Paul thought that he heard his name called. All in all, I think that they did a pretty good job with this investigation.
In my opinion, haunted no — money pit yes.
Case #2: Ijmuiden Fortress
Once again, another interesting location for the team. I was surprised that they mentioned the disappearance of Britt. As you know Britt was fired after using some troubling language in a radio interview.
The team collected evidence like a hand print that can be seen using black light. Interesting but not paranormal in my opinion. They collected some poor evps — once again I am not impressed. I imagine that sounds do some funky things with those bunker walls. They chased a few shadows— once again I am not impressed. They did manage to catch what they called self-illuminating UV lights.
While the lights were interesting, to me the lights seemed to be camera pixel errors. I imagine that those cameras take a beating with all of that travel.
Barry declared that the location was haunted and once again my jaw dropped. Oh well, on to the next one …
