These shows are SOOOO boring. Nothing happens except for a bunch of people freaking out over what ends up being nothing. Im starting a thread for people who hate this boring show, and will make one for ghost hunters too.

Destination Truth and Ghost Hunters are two of the highest rated shows on SyFy. Guess the majority of people do not agree with you on this.

Kolino and Safwey, if you're soooo bored with the show, get off our forum... This show rocks! And if you don't appreciate it, don't rain on our parade!
But, as the fan above me said, to each his own.... It's just that I get a little irked when non-fans seek out FAN websites to bash the shows.

They may run around and not find anything or freak out during the ghost hunts, but at least they are entertaining.

My only problem with DT is they need to bring back Ryder!! Alli is flat and not entertaining at all.

Umm, why do you think these shows decide to start "cranking it up a notch"? It's posts like this. No producer wants to hear that his show is boring, so what will he do...make it NOT BORING at the expense of fact. Posts like this are part of the problem we see with what GH etc are becoming.

Kolino - "These shows are SOOOO boring. Nothing happens except for a bunch of people freaking out over what ends up being nothing. Im starting a thread for people who hate this boring show, and will make one for ghost hunters too."

Take a hike man.

It's one of the highest rated shows on SyFy, so either you're wrong or millions of other people are.

Methinks it's you.

Go to forums of shows you DO like, like Sesame Street.

The remote control is such a simple device for removing unwanted programing from view, I wonder at some peoples inability to use it.Posted Image

People do know how to use it, it is just when said people lose the remote and are not capable of operating the tv manually that is an issue

I enjoying learning about mythology and the like, but I agree (such as with some paranormal programs) the freaking-out-over-nothing does get annoying.

In a controlled environment like a house , perhaps not but trampling out in the jungle in the dark with wildlife and plenty of snakes , poisonous spiders & scorpions , i would freak out just as badly.

If you want serious cryptozoology investigations , go watch monsterquest - it's dry presentation. The investigators don't camp out , just put trap cameras and retrieve it a day later.
DH is about entertainment , Josh Gates make the difference , without his wit and humor , the show wouldn't be half as good.

Early Josh Gates as he scams his way inside disneyland.

Producers a) don't read these forums and B) even if they did they wouldn't pay attention to the comments. Producers only react to ratings numbers, period. Ghost Hunters ratings have been falling since the show reached critical mass (when no new viewers tuned in to see what all the buzz was about). From what I've read, they got the one investigator to inflate her assets. Apparently they've also changed their tagline (from "What the fetch" to "Did you see/hear/feel that" and "What the he** was that?"). They've got one guy who apparently is constantly seeing things while another guy I think has been nick-named "Dasher" because he's guaranteed to dash after some shadow, etc. All gimmicks someone thought would breathe fresh life back into the show. LOL.

Destination Truth is a pretty good show for what it is, but it has lost a lot of appeal since they've been using the two plumbers as "experts" to analyze their evidence. DT used to go with credible "experts" for DNA testing, etc. but I guess it was too expensive and someone thought doing the plumber routine would be "good enough". Dumb idea.

Kolino, while your opinions seem to be fair and balanced I beg you to deny the fact that Josh Gates is a god among men. His witty dialogue is that of a genius and the fact that his jaw line is as chiseled as a Bangkok street merchant. You seem like a guy who knows what's boring but this time you may have lashed out irrationally. I love you and hope you open your heart to a better tomorrow.

Seconded.


Thirded! :P

I always enjoy GH (will definitely be watching tonite!), and I enjoy Destination Truth too--love Josh's sense of humor, he always cracks me up! (And GhostTiger is so right--he isa god among men--not that this has anything to do with my liking of the show, of course. :lol: )

And if I were stumbling around a jungle in the middle of the night, I'd be screaming so loud it would set off alarms from Bangkok to Boston. It's easy to be "brave" sitting on the sofa with a beer (or whatever B) ) in one hand and the remote in the other, even I can do that!

So kindly stop picking on my guys!!! :wub:

I agree, why be so mean spirited to Josh Gates? All he wants to do is bring cheer to our spirits and let all the children all over the world realize that they are champions in the game of life. Would you say such things to Ghandi or Mother Theresa or Tootie from Facts of Life? No you wouldn't!! Maybe one day one of you will have a show and I'll get on it's message board and post some thing like "Hey, your show isn't all that great. I mean it's ok, but it lacks something. It lacks heart, the heart of a child, the heart of say Josh Gates" and then you'll think twice about who you've hurt with your words!!! Sorry guys I really cook like a kettle when Josh Gates is spoken poorly about.

No, probably not personally, but you can bet your bottom nickel they've got people "checking the wind" who do let them know when a critical mass of comments appears. And as far as reacting to ratings ONLY...I disagree, it can't be coincidence that there have been format changes that were started as comments and uproar in forums.

I love Destination Truth! Josh and his teams have always done a tremendous job. On a personal note, I do wish they would not involve the Ghost Hunters Team on so many episodes.
