A quality production, I give the series 8 out of 10. You will get to see some great places in the world and learn a bit about history at the same time, though some of it is highly questionable source wise. In the episode, the geophones were recorded on video flashing to the vibrations of what sound like footsteps across a floor even though no one was supposedly in the room. The new cast is absolutely horrible. This team is almost boring. No one seems to joke around, and they're all so serious when on camera.
Ghost Hunters is a complete waste of time. Sadly, they try to project themselves as doing scientific investigations but there is nothing really scientific in their procedures aside from the fact that they are using technical gadgetry. About the only good thing about the show is seeing locales that one will likely never be able to visit, and for that I give it 2 stars. I am unsure why they took this show off the air. The team has also experimented, in at least one episode, with a during their investigation to see if it would register any anomalous readings. Might help with the believability, but again, since there are no such things as ghosts and demons, they play the hand they got to try and fake out the audience. Made up story lines from other nut bags about Hitler's ghost and so on only make this show more laughable as they try and communicate with Germans in English.
Its actually insulting to people who might have actually had legitimate experiences in those places overtime. I will still watch it, as they do investigate cool places, but they need to lighten up a little and have fun! Yeah you accepted a job walking through abandoned churches at night. A spirit doesn't care if the lights are on you morons. Familiar faces such as Brian, Donna and Andy are joined by new team members as they explore some impressive haunted locations around Europe.

Back in Brazil, a Cultural Centre built on the site of slave burials is reported to be haunted by shadow people.
Many times, they will even try to verbally coax the ghosts into responding, while recording. The two originally worked as for as a day job while investigating locations at night. The show was later named Ghost Hunters Academy and began airing November 11, 2009. There did always seem to be a castle somewhere that needed investigating. They happen once in a while.
I think the main problem with the show is two-fold. Just because someone can not pin point the reason for hearing a thump noise, does not mean it's automatically paranormal, it means that they don't know what made the noise. Did I mention they see a lot of castle? No repeat viewing for me. In June 2016, Jason Hawes announced that Ghost Hunters would be ending their relationship with the SyFy channel at the conclusion of its eleventh season, which aired later that year. Archived from on December 19, 2007. One wonders why that if their static light meter is working so well, that they don't apply multiple technologies at one time, using thermal, evp, and the electromagnetic gadgets once they pretend to pinpoint a spirit communicating with them. My husband and I ended up watching the show to have a laugh.
So granted that a place might actually be haunted, do they expect that the ghosts must pay respects to their presence and show themselves just in the few hours they are there? Radford, who also investigates ghostly claims. This show is great for anyone who likes ghost stories and castles. Most of the efforts to investigate ghosts so far have been badly flawed and unscientific — and not surprisingly, fruitless. Second, the team explore the Diplomat Hotel, a former sanitarium where people were tortured and killed by occupying forces and now unexplained figures are seen. Other gear not typically shown on screen are an generator, a device that charges the air with electricity and is theorized to help spirits manifest, and the , an audio device that makes a static and is theorized to act as a catalyst for assisting entities in making. Yeah you can fall down flat on your face but hey it is a job like another : By season two and three there were a lot of people just passing the revue. What ended up happening, I don't know.
But rosary beads came out, less equipment was being used, peoples personalities got crazy with each other and with potential spirits. The series features Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango leading a group of amateur ghost hunters through various investigations. The format was similar to a typical Ghost Hunters episode with most of the program dedicated to the investigation and wrapped up with a review of findings and evidence that was gathered. . Tools are used in ways that are not proven effective, or in ways in which they have been proven ineffective, such as that are claimed to detect cold spots in the middle of rooms when such tools are able only to measure the surface temperature of objects. As a loyal Ghost Hunters fan, I was really excited to learn they were doing a spin off show, doing all the cases in Europe Leap Castle anyone? The crew they used changed a lot but the new members were quickly likable and enjoyable.
I place some fault on the people who direct and produce, they should know better. The pilot episode was reformatted and returned on December 13, 2008 as a special called Ny-Spi Investigates on , but was not picked up as a continuing series. The new network hasn't been announced. Besides that, however, it really seems that the investigators are amateurs. I give it 2 stars because it's not that good, but is watchable if you need to laugh at the idea that people still believe in ghosts, and waste precious hours of their lives actually hunting them.
Somehow it reminds me of the opening of Ghostbusters, where they are investigating the ghost at the library and when they encounter her they don't know what really to do and run out. We would make a bet as to how many shadows Brian would see in each episode. In regard to the scrutiny, Wilson and Hawes defended themselves, stating that everything in the show is real. In a 2013 interview on The Reveal, Wilson stated that their television contracts forbade them from faking evidence on the show. They'll wander around a haunted location for a few hours during the night with their night-vision cams, etc.
It doesn't have the same energy that the regular Ghost Hunters show has. The only link between the two series is presenter who anchored the European series. Washington Hotel in New Hampshire. The show starts off with the travel to the location, and then the set-up, where they are briefed about where to look and what to look for. I think that this show would have done well for a few more seasons. Just for the locations themselves, this is worth watching.
