Bless them! Bless them! That was what I've been spewing about TAPS and modern ghost hunting ever since I started in the biz in 2003. It's not scientific. It's pseudoscience. Very good find, buddy!

I've long admitted that 'ghost hunting' is fine. I think we all love to do it, but this writer is right. There is nothing scientific about what they do; they only don the trappings of it all. I would be okay with this show, if they just said: we don't do science, we just run around in the dark and scare ourselves silly. That's what Ghost Adventures does these days. I'm coming around to them. I still think they're too stupid to watch, but I support them more because they've embraced the fun of it. Now, if they'd just get rid of the gadgets too, I think the show would be even better.

You know, I said it long ago when GH started, "why the hell would someone want to watch my hobby? It's so freaking boring!" You can't make a lot of entertainment out of people sitting in dark quiet places talking to walls or else we would have a show about lonely insomniacs. So, GA at least just has fun with it like a bunch of frat boys daring each other. I watch it not for any ghost hunting content but for the awesome locations they get to lock themselves down in and then puss out when they hear things. That IS entertaining.
