Ghost Hunters

I decided to watch this episode of Ghost Hunters to take a look at the new ghost hunter, Michelle Tate. The new format of Jason mixing his monologue  with comments added from the eyewitnesses works for me. I really didn’t care for the staged case briefing in the Taps van of previous seasons. Having said that, GH really feels like Ghost Adventures.

A-ghost-of-the-victorian-ageOn the downside, the staged introduction of Michelle Tate could make a maggot puke. We have to pretend that her introduction to the team was a “big surprise” — complete with Adam cheering. Even the biggest hardcore Ghost Hunters fan had to poll their eyes at the obviously staged introduction.

The investigation seemed to be odd in that we were looking for the ghost of a woman who may have been murdered at that location. In the end, we only have a couple of low quality evps and some external noise contamination.  I really came away with the feeling that the cast and crew didn’t want to do this investigation — they seemed really flat.

The second part of the show took us to Madame Tussauds wax museum. Let’s face it dolls, statues, and manikins, are creepy.

All in all, this episode was a bit of a snooze …
