Ghost Hunters new season begins on March 3rd in Alcatraz

The new season of Ghost Hunters is all set to resume on the 3rd of March on SciFi channel with Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson along with their team explore the haunting in Alcatraz, San Francisco. Alcatraz was a federal prison until 1963 but currently is more of a tourist destination. Located on the San Francisco bay it’s a small island often called as “The Rock”.

Alcatraz obviously has a disturbing past as there have been many deaths as it was a prison before. I have myself been there on an audio tour and walked those halls just couple of years ago but did not have a clue that it was known for its haunting. So it’s going to be kind of interesting for me to watch this episode. This is probably the first location in Ghost Hunters that I have actually visited so it will be kind of cool.

Well not that I saw anything strange while I was there in Alcatraz but will be kind of interesting to see what the GH crew find out.

Ghost Hunters is a different and interesting show, much better than the number of stupid reality shows on TV. For the people who don’t know about the show, Ghost Hunters is about a group of people investigating paranormal activity reported in houses or other buildings trying to capture evidence for it or against it to disprove the same. That’s where this show differs from the rest of the reality show. The fact that the TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) as they call themselves, go into a house where a paranormal activity is reported with the intention of debunking the theory rather than scaring the inmates even more.

 

I am one of the guys who love horror movies and the thought of someone investigating paranormal activity live is something which keeps me interested in Ghost Hunters. It’s like watching different horror movie with different theme every week with the same cast.

 

The episodes are exciting. The leads in the show Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson along with their team keep the viewers interested by giving their expert comments and giving explanation of each and every gadget they use whenever possible. There is little bit of drama here and there in the show but that can be excused as it does not occupy a lot of time on the screen. Most of the time there is action and there are rearely any dull moments in the show. You sit in anticipation of seeing something paranormal on the screen, even though most of the time you are disappointed as the TAPS find no evidence.

 

But still the overall process of them going to the location, setting up the equipments and then the investigation part is quite enjoyable and action packed. These are few things we cannot say about too many reality shows on the television. At least we don’t see too much of crying and fighting on the screen.

 

I look forward to Wednesday evenings for the Ghost Hunters. I am not that keen on watching the Ghost Hunters Internationals (GHI) though as I feel that the cast is not that great when compared to Ghost Hunters. I just think that the GHI cast go little bit over the top for me which makes is hard to enjoy the show.

 

GH cast members are the ones who make the show enjoyable and I hope that they continue giving their best and keep the show as it is right now. Three cheers to Ghost Hunters and its cast. Its one of the few shows I love on television.
