Those of you who watch/have seen Paranormal State, what are your thoughts on it?

Asked by aquaticeyes (107 points ) July 29th, 2012

I watch the show routinely every day.
I think the cast (or “characters” if you prefer) are honest and that the footage they use is real. Some of my friends disagree.. I was just wonder who else does?

I’m a skeptic by nature, and well aware of the tricks TV producers, sound engineers, special effects people and such can generate to produce a show for the legions of Americans who will eat it up without so much as wondering if they are being irrational. See this debunk of it. And this and this

The list is long, but you get the point.

Just a lot of screaming and gasps and “What was that???!!!”...but nothing ever really happens.

@aquaticeyes Ah! Glad to hear it. I figured I might be setting the Fabulous Fluther Fight gears in motion with my skepticism.

@Dutchess_III No kidding! One time a girl said that a “ghost” said something in her “ear hole.” Really? Who watches this crap? Same with Long Island Medium. I guess people really want something to believe in.
