Best Video Clips From Ghost Hunters (TAPS)


The Top Ten Best Video Clips From Ghost Hunters (TAPS)

In searching through Youtube and many other free video sites Ghost filled videos real and fraudulent often fill our screens. In the center of all this is what many heald as the definitive show that in the oppinions of many is the proof that Sci-Fi's Ghost hunters Roto-Rooter plumbers Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson moonlight as ghostbusters for clients who claim to be experiencing reak paranormal phenomena.

The show debuted in October 2004 on the American Sci-fi Channel. It should not be confused with the original 1996 Inca Productions show Ghosthunters produced for the Discovery Channel. The format was sold to the US to become Ghost Hunters. The only remaining link between the two shows is presenter Ian Cashmore who anchored the UK/Europe show. Cashmore piloted the U.S. show, but chose not to remain part of the US venture after he filmed the promos.

Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, along with other team members who belong to the group they founded, The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS), investigate locations of interest by using electronic equipment which they feel is capable of detecting paranormal activity. TAPS's equipment includes digital thermometers, EMF (electromagnetic field) scanners, infrared and night vision cameras, handheld digital video cameras, digital audio recorders, and laptop computers. Other gear not shown on screen are an Ion Generator — a device that charges the air with electricity and theorized to help spirits manifest, and the White Noise Generator — an audio device that creates a static background noise and theorized to act as a catalyst for assisting entities in creating EVPs.

Criticism
Ghost Hunters has attracted various critics and skeptics. Some question the scientific validity of the investigations conducted by the TAPS team, its methodology, and particularly its use of instrumentation, as there is no scientifically-proven link between the existence of ghosts and (for example) cold spots or electromagnetic fields (which Hawes and Wilson say are not necessarily paranormal).Of ghost hunting in general, skeptical investigator Joe Nickell says, "...the approach of the typical ghost hunter—a nonscientist using equipment for a purpose for which it was not made and has not been shown to be effective—is sheer pseudoscience". Others contend that the show's claimed evidence of the paranormal could be easily hoaxed, since third party review of evidence collected by TAPS is not encouraged, and those who have contacted the group asking for full footage from everything recorded at the haunted locations have also gone unanswered. With each new season, critics of Ghost Hunters continue to publish skeptical analyses and theories on the Internet, often employing frame-by-frame analysis of episode footage which they believe debunks the show's findings.

Like many reality shows, Ghost Hunters has developed some storylines which carry over from episode to episode.

Former investigator Brian Harnois is portrayed as an unreliable misfit who exasperates the other TAPS team members. He is often used as comic relief. After being spooked in episode 105 during an investigation of Eastern State Penitentiary, Harnois's catch phrase was created:
“ Dude, run! ”

The phrase was subsequently printed on caps and t-shirts sold by the group’s merchandising arm. Harnois's storyline climaxed when he resigned from TAPS in episode 207. In the 2005 Halloween Special episode, he rejoined the group after asking leader Jason Hawes for a second chance.

Technical Manager Steve Gonsalves is portrayed as reliable and unflappable, despite several phobias including fear of heights, spiders, and air travel.

The relationship between group leaders Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson is characterized as personal as well as professional. The two are also portrayed as parental figures of the TAPS "family." In episode 101, they are seen discussing how to handle a team member's tardiness:
“ Wilson: "Why don't you try to show you have a sensitive side?"
Hawes: "Why don't you show you have a rugged side?" ”

Hawes's character is depicted variously as authoritarian alpha-male (nicknamed "The Ghostfather") and devoted but irritable "parent." Wilson's character is shown as the milder of the two, more apt to avoid conflict with team members and to express support for Hawes's decisions.
Other personalities on the TAPS team like newcomers Dustin Pari and Dave Tango are shown to contribute enthusiasm and occasional horseplay. In episode 213, Tango was apparently duped into wearing a rhinestone tiara during an investigation, while Pari is portrayed as technically knowledgable and eager to display his worth to the group. However, substantial storylines concerning these cast members have not been developed.


Hawes and Wilson often repeat their best advice to viewers who are unsure if they are experiencing paranormal activity:
“ When in doubt, get the hell out ”

 

 

 

 

Spinoff series

Ghost Hunters International

A new spin off series Ghost Hunters International premiered Wednesday, January 9, 2008 and features TAPS veterans Robb Demarest, Andy Andrews, Brian Harnois, and Donna La Croix, along with Barry Fitzgerald (who appeared in the Ireland episodes of Ghost Hunters) and newcomer Shannon Sylvia. The format will be the same as Ghost Hunters but will feature investigations at locations mostly around Europe.


UFO Hunters
See main article: UFO Hunters (Sci Fi Channel)

Ghost Hunters producers Craig Pilligan and Tom Thayer released a new paranormal investigation series entitled UFO Hunters which first aired on January 30, 2008. The show follows New York Strange Phenomena Investigators (NY-SPI) co-founders Oliver Kemenczky and Ted Davis, along with paranormal researcher Dennis Anderson, as they investigate claims of alien encounters and UFO sightings. The format is similar to Ghost Hunters with most of the program dedicated to the investigation and wrapped up with a review of findings and evidence that was gathered.[6] This series should not be confused with the History Channel series with the same name.
