School Spirits ~ Premiers Tonight in the U.S.

Post by eirefox on Thu Jun 21, 2012 4:21 am

What are your thoughts on 'ghost reality TV'?
I enjoy these programs. My personal favorite program is I SURVIVED- BEYOND AND BACK.
There's a new one premiering tonight here in the U.S., called SCHOOL SPIRITS.

It seems there's always a new show like this popping up on cable.
These programs seem pretty successful. They go on season after season.
I'm curious what you all think about these types of programs, and what are some of the names of programs you have in the U.K. and Australia?

All the programs of that sort I've seen have been interesting from an entertaiment point of view, but very lacking in substance. Just because a half second recording sounds like a word if played ten times back to back (and only after they have said what word they think it is) doesn't amount to conclusive spirit contact. Likewise, a dark smudge on a photo or a dog barking at nothing.

In Australia on Pay TV there are a few programs, like Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International, Most Haunted, Celebrity Ghost Story. Not to mention Crossing Over, Psychic Sally and a plethora of UFO, Alien & conspiracy programs.

My thoughts about 'spooks' reality shows? I can sum 'em up as being much the same as they are about human reality shows - the shows are cheaply-made, intellectually undemanding, personality focused trash.

Spooks shows are likely to be purchased by TV companies to chase the ratings and their content will reflect that. nuff said?

I watched the premier last night, and was not very impressed by it.

The website for the show is more than a bit unsettling

Indeed, Wes, quite unpleasant.
