Watched this show the first week, then the second, and it always leaves me empty, even to the point that I had to sign onto this forum to vent. To show paranormal events through the eye witnesses is a great idea, I think. Too often we see it through the investigators, which is totally fine with me because I do believe this stuff happens. Honestly, they should add an investigation part to this show as well. Stories that have merit should be investigated by TAPS or any other Ghost hunter crew prior to being aired. Sure, show their story, devote half of the show to their story, but there should be an investigation in addition to their story, instead of fitting another 'big foot story'.
Now, on to the episode, I've lived through and am living in a house with a haunting, a part of me wants to believe, and a part of me says this is complete S#$%. First off, all of this stuff is going on, and they don't once think to call an investigator, they don't once think to call a priest early (not late), they don't ask for help, other than putting up a stupid alter with a cat on it (which is completly the wrong thing to do), they just take photos?. Why didn't they investigate the history of the house? Granted they had photos, which could easily be faked, and blurry camera video, again could easily be faked, they may also be real, who knows. The story would have much more validity if an investigatiion occured in that house. Make it a 2 hr episode. I don't buy the fact that they don't know who to call, they obviously knew who to submit a story like this to. I also don't buy the fact that a priest was called and refused, I think this was a lie. Typically, priests, will jump at the opportunity to bless a house and help.
Furthermore, if what they experienced was true, it wasn't by definition a poltergeist, more of a demonic infestation of some sort, which leads me to my second point. If you talk to any real ghost investigators, a poltergeist of this magnitude rarely ever exists, just way too much energy to throw a couch and throw around furniture, except the TV and computer , or anything of value, of course. If this did occur, this would be one hell of a haunting, and any Ghost investigation team would be all over it.
In the end, I'm doubtful of the events depicted. They may be true, but without an investigation, no one will ever know.
I think this may have been a ploy for the mother to get back with the boyfriend, and blame their relationship foes on the poltergeist/spirit.
If all the houses are for sale, why doesn't the syfy channel send the TAPS team over to the house to investigate it? I would watch that show.
Not bad if one happens to be alone with nohing beter to do...except watch tv. NO the kid didnt do it. Seen the sme thing in homes with infants who couldn't have reached the walls, let alone scribble stuff on it. Someting did but I didn't get a clue as to "what". As for GH, they would "muck about" as usual, come up with questionable conclusionsm oh if only judt 1 time some spirit would drop kick one of the tem across the living room. anow that would be a real example of the paranormal striking back.
If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic.
The notion of picking 1 times of the year to be decent to others is obscene because it's actually validating the notion of being miserable SOB finaly.
Your biggest problem...hell I don't know what it is!!! Ask somebody else.
