Why Ghost Hunters International Sucks


My bf and I love the Sci Fi show Ghost Hunters. We love the sensible leadership of Jason and Grant, their rational desire to debunk allegations of ghost activity and yet their occasional admittance of haunted places once in a while, their skeptical stance on orbs. We love the cast of characters: Donna who didn’t seem easily rattled (or maybe she was just edited that way), the annoying and yet goofy melodrama of Brian, we even grew to like Tango. We were excited to learn of a new spin-off, Ghost Hunters International (GHI). After a falling out with Grant and Jason, Brian Harnois joins another long-timer Donna LaCroix, and sporadic members Andy Andrews (I know) and the Irishman Barry Fitzgerald. New hunters Shannon Sylvia (who suspiciously was recently seen appearing on the vapid show Most Haunted) and joins and Robb Demarest, from another TAPS franchise is chosen to lead this rag-tag group. We were sorely disgusted with the result. In fact, I kept falling asleep half-way through most episodes. My bf and I recently sat down to discuss the problems.
  1. There’s very little skepticism or debunking going on. Robb and Andy try but…
  2. A sudden Christian element (prayers, rosaries) has infiltrated the show and this destroys much of the credibility from the original Ghost Hunters. In fact, there’s a constant assumption of evil. We miss the “ghosts are people too” ethos of the first show. To assume you’re always dealing with eeevil clouds your judgment. And this show’s judgment is in a fog bank.
  3. In fact Irishman Barry is in ghostly hysterics half the time. He would fit more with the fraudulent-seeming Most Haunted show from England. Barry, who’s silly, skinny soul patch should go post-haste, sees ghosts every episode. And runs from them. Brian got ripped a new one for running out of a prison in the first show with his infamous exclamation “Run, Dude, Run!” GHI seems to be edited to engage in fear mongering. Which makes it very unscary.
  4. Brian is pretty much a non-entity on the show. His main asset on the first show was his irritant role in the group. He’s not even touchy on this show.
  5. Shannon is dead weight.
  6. Donna is a great disappointment. She was a semi-kewl chick on Ghost Hunters, rarely getting her feathers ruffled as far as we could tell. On GHI, she’s whiny, alarmed, or clutching a rosary most of the time. It usually necessities Andy coming in to debunk her grand claims of ghost activity.
  7. And thank God for Robb and Andy, who are good but alas no Jay and Grant. They don’t have their sense of humor; they don’t have their camaraderie; and they cannot instill debunking-focus over the entire group. They seem to lack the leadership skills or authority Jay and Grant have. For instance, when Shannon and Donna were fighting, Robbs direction was very tentative. Jay would have brought down some anger into the situation and they would have had to get their shit together.
  8. Too many “personal experiences.” They’re in fabulous locations all over the haunted world and they can't come up with a single interesting piece of visual evidence or any really outstanding EVPs. As Jay and Grant would say, personal experiences are good but they don’t prove anything, they’re just supporting evidence.
  9. It turns out there’s a language barrier when trying to communicate with ghosts who may only speak say Romanian or Italian.
  10. Where did all the superstitious paraphernalia come from anyway? What happened to the more scientific tone of the American show? What happened to all that TAPS education?
  11. No more interesting SWAG...all the funny versions of TAPS t-shirts members would wear from week to week.
  12. And finally, I miss the funny intro with cast members throwing looks over their shoulders with disturbed expressions.
Why did the Ghost Hunters franchise spend all that money to turn itself into Most Haunted?

yeah the shows crap without jason and grant. im from the uk and i can say that most haunted is the biggest pile of rubbish going. i cant get enough of ghost hunters

Definitely. And then in the fourth or fifth episode, they throw in DOnna and Shannon complaining about how each other do EVPs even though there is no indication of any problems previously. Keep the drama out of ghost hunting, people.

I think that the only thing we can truly thank TAPS for was being the most "group next door" paranormal team to get on television and that's about it. The reasons why I don't agree with their techniques, their "debunking" or their constant need lately for drama with detracting sound tracks added to the shows are far too numerous and far too lengthy to go into here. Suffice it to say that they have relegated themselves to nothing more than a curiousity at best and have become another mind numbing waste of a few hours watching television. Too much drama, too little real investigating. They have become that which they always said they didn't want to be. Forget all the high tech gadgets, the Roto Rooter gratus drop ins, the fleet of vehicles and the invitations to every well-known haunted place because you have a t.v. show. Get back to your roots and how it was before you hit it big with sponsors and all that money you're raking in from video sales and residuals. How can anything they get be taken seriously at this point when the spectre of commercialism is looming behind them all the time? They don't debunk, they simply don't deal with and by rejecting many things out of hand, they ignore potential evidence or pieces of the overall puzzle that might make a difference. They are better than a schlocky show like Most Haunted but not by much anymore. There comes a time when mainstream isn't such a good thing, especially when it causes you to change who you are in favor of pleasing the instant gratification society. Get back to who they were and I would probably see things differently but I am afraid that it is too late for TAPS.

All those Ghost shows are the stupidest thing in the world. What are people on Sci Fi all 9 years old?

Ghosts. do not. exist.

The fact that a large part of the day is dedicated to moronic ghost shows is a testament to the stupidity of TV viewers. Moreover, if there ARE actually ghosts in the world, I really hope 5 goombahs from New Jersey aren't tackling it.

Dear Ghost Hunters International,
Give it up, you are NO Jason & Grant, Robb stop talking with lisp, and trying to act like a professional in this field, anyone or any kid can ghost hunt better then you can, and most of all, lose the weight and beard. Andy you really get on my nerves, you sound like a arogant A Hole, enough with the hair gel, because the hairdo and your voice is making me think that you are a woman in sheeps clothing, Brian you are only on GHI is to get away from your other fellow mates on TAPS in America, which I know they truly hate your guts, and Donna, are you a DYKE or a Slut that just wants to be around men cause it seems to me that you look like a person that knows how to do the casting couch. I can't believe that SCI-FI made another season of this shit, TAPS is the original that I will truly and only will watch. SCI-FI please do not make another season of GHI please oh please, they get on my nerv on GHI. I promise I will petition the show, if another season goes on. Thank You Very Much

Bravo, right on target. My wife and I love Ghost Hunters and loyally watch all season only to be disappointed when GHI starts. And what's with Rob's eyebrows? Everyone is so awkward, no one has the confidence and gravitas of Jay and Grant. Frankly, I just don't believe anything GHI says. Brian sees shadows everywhere, Barry thinks everything is possessed, Shannon is loud, pushy and useless, and Donna just 'feels' weird all the time now. It's silly. We watch GH to see what happens next, we watch GHI just to make fun and pass the time until GH is back.

Anonymous said...

I agree on all points except 7. I find that Robb and Andy, who I'm sure are great in real life, are utterly lacking in any on-screen charisma. Robb's awkward interaction with "clients" even makes me uncomfortable and Andy is just too much of an Andy... So disappointing as there's so much potential when going to all these international locales.

Your comments are so right - I say one thing - When ghost hunters international comes on - change the Chanel! Its not even worth watching once. I did the one time show and see what they did. What the hell a rosary? Prayer? Evil? I now change the Chanel when they are on ... CSI is looking good now!

Thank God Shannon Sylvia is out of there! But why put Dustin in when all he wants to do is find "real" evidence, like he did on GH? Sorry Dustin, but this show will ruin you, unless you can get them to investigating like Jason and Grant do!

Once again last night, I tuned in to GHI and I guess I must just be a glutton for punishment because it didn't fail to not impress. How can you go all the way to Ireland, go to Charleville castle and then not have more to show for it than Brian and Rob running up and down the stairs for 10 minutes chasing a white light is inexcusable. What a waste of what otherwise might have been a truly spectacular show. You would think with all that equipment, cameras would have been placed everywhere and perhaps something would have been captured. That is afterall the point of using technology as another "investigator" and having eyes where you don't have team members to cover. I was not impressed. And then, I forget which episode it was last night but I believe it was this one, Andy says that hopefully something they have done will inspire other investigation groups to come out and investigate the place for themselves. Sorry Andy, the rest of us do not have infinite budgets or production crews following us around the globe paying for us to do what you do. I would love to have the budgets you guys have and be able to visit the locations you get invited to on the caveat that you are associated with the now famous TAPS organization. The difference would be that I would insist that the production crews stay out of the investigation areas and let us do all the work and the filming and the data collection free of incumberances that you seem all too willing to endure for ratings. The rest of us have sit back and only dream about visiting the places you have the opportunity to visit and marvel at how you seemingly squander away your chances to really dig into the reports of activity. You can't fully investigate a site in a few hours, it takes days sometimes weeks to do a thorough, complete investigation and you simply aren't providing us with that kind of depth or attention to detail. I would much rather you took one site per show, investigated it over a few days and then present a show that gave us a run down of what you did or did not capture during the course of your investigation. That would be more complete, more interesting and more compelling than what you are doing now.

In my opinion one of GHI and Taps biggest problem is that they have all these camera men and sound guys following them around with all of their lights on etc..... Why not wear wirelss mics, like they do on many other reality T.V. shows. And here is a novel idea. Why not wear head mounted wireless digital video cameras? So when Rob sees another one of his strange light anomolies we could all see it.....I realize that some crew memebers are a necessary evil to produce a viable television show. But there should be more sitting in the dark doing EVP work etc.as opposed to Donna who is now evidently a sensitive and Barry walking around with flashlights blazing spouting off their lame commentary. I am a loyal Taps fan, but if they continue to associate themselves with GHI I will begin to question my loyalty to their show as well. And as far as Taps goes.... It seems that after four or five seasons they must be running out of residential haunts. Must be the U.S. has only a hundred or so haunted houses worth investigation.....And why not, as someone stated above, actually spend more than one night in any given location as opposed to spending six hours there and claiming it is not haunted? Hell half of the time they leave a location before the anti hour..... I think that given the resources and commercial backing that they have access to, many of us could produce a far more believable show that would produce a greater amount of tangeable proof.

I just watched the July 30, 2008 program. What's with Dustin? How can you take a guy who wears his hat upside down and backwards seriously. This dude thinks he's in junior high. Donna is having a lot more experiences in GHI than she had with TAPS. Why is this? I'd think this stuff was really garbage except for the fact that my husband and his family lived with a spirit. They didn't know the story behind the "haunting" until they mentioned it to an elderly woman from the neighborhood. She told them a little girl fell out of the second story window some years back, died, and the wake was held in the dining room. (That explains the smell of flowers, the child's foot steps running around the bed, and the knocks in the stairwell that no person could reach.)

A group of us get together just to watch, laugh and catcall GHI! We truly love GH, but GHI is a comedy masquerading as a serious investigative show. No one in the crew has any charisma, camera presence, and absolutely everyplace they go is haunted, according to them. I have yet to see anything impressive. So many awesome locales--so little to show for any of it. The show CAN be a major source of derisive amusement, though!

GHI TOTALLY SUCKS!!
What's up with these people?? Lame investigations, never catch anything and it's like TAPS sent the biggest morons from the team to do what TAPS should be doing. Donna's cool but she's turned hecka jumpy. Brian needed to stay kicked off the ANY show. Barry's alright but scardey cat much Barr? Seriously, why can't Steve just be anesthetized and get flown to Europe so he can HANDLE it!?

Kristof said...

I love ghost hunters,but GHI sucks just because of that guy Andy Andy (just his name is annoying). That guy already irritated the hell out of me because of his smart ass attitude and his annoying voice. Somebody please choke him. In addition to Andy 'the dweeb', the rest of the team got no personality. Brian always sees shit that nobody else sees, that Irish guy drives me crazy with his 'full spectrum' camera & his , robb seems to think everything is haunted and donna contributes nothing. Pretty much the only one that is any good on that show is dustin. Sure wish TAPS would go to international locations instead of this bunch of annoying amateurs.

Mongoose said...

Would someone please send Barry downstairs to "Focus the IRs" and then pack up the gear and leave before he gets back. Oh, and don't forget to back over his "Full-Spectrum Camera" on the way out of the driveway.

Zeitgeist said...

If you can watch it long enough, up to the reveal, you will hear them say at some point something to the effect of "well, we just didn't catch anything. That doesn't mean that there isn't anything going on, it just means we didn't catch it while we were here." Well if that is the case guys, maybe you should plan your investigations so that they can be conducted over several days with the equipment running. In that way, the crew gets rested, each days data can be reviewed and any interesting tidbits examined for evidentury value and you could probably make a more definitive evaluation of the site than we didn't catch anything but that isn't to say there isn't something go on.
Shoddy is a word that comes to mind, especially when you are investigating some of the most notable sites in the U.K and the continent (Europe). There is no point in spending a few hours and then proclaiming that you could not definitively say yes or no. This is just another attempt at quick gratification for what they feel the masses want when in reality, the masses want substance not schlock! Bad acting, poor demeanors and questionable investigative techniques do little to instill confidence or a feeling of being of helped. If anything, having these people on my site would cause me to lose sleep and become a nervous wreck. Hey Andy, why don't you climb around on another restored historical landmark and drop some more photographic equipment to the ground. No doubt the backup crew has plenty more cameras in the property truck. What a schmuck!

GHI significantly damages the professional reputation of TAPS. I frequently wonder how GHI investigates such amazing locations, yet the summation of evidence from all their investigations cannot match in quality or quantity, the evidence gathered in just one episode of Ghost Hunters. Obviously, GHI investigates enormous spaces and their methodology, as previously mentioned, is flawed in comparison to TAPS, but to constantly not find much of anything? Meanwhile, TAPS is capturing clear EVPs, images of figures,and footage of objects moving in locations fairly new in comparison to GHI? It makes me wonder if TAPS tampers with their evidence, which generates skepticism regarding their credibillity and ultimately pisses me off. Though I will admit, Andy blow drying a table was amusing.

Okay, All of the viewers who don't like the damn show, stop watching it!!! If some people would just have some kinda interest in culture, history, art, or anything that is different from our standards in the US, then maybe GHI would be a great hit, but in the good old USA our standards at this point of knowledge are crap!!
I think that it is awsome to know that there are still castles standing that are at least 300 to 400 years old, especially in our world today. Another thing that makes me want to watch is that in these structures that are this old still have some spirits or something still attached. Hello, something that is still around for that long probably is a demon or poltergeist!

Zeitgeist said...

rgonzales-
I hate to burst your bubble friend but just because something has been around for 300-400 years does not necessarily mean it is evil or a demon and the last time I checked, poltergeist activity has never been reported to have existed that long in any one location. Poltergeist encounters are usually brief with some lasting as long as a year, perhaps a bit more but those are rarities. As to watching it for the information on castles, etc., you can do the same thing by watching the History Channel or any of the other channels that have history based shows on them. As a teacher of history, I would hate to think that the only source I had to learn about a castle in Germany dating back to the medieval period was Ghost Hunters International. There is no value in GHI as a source of culture or information as you seem to think. You will get better information at a library than you will get on GHI about history, culture or an expanded world view.

I hate, cannot stand Andy Andrews of Ghost Hunters International!! Please fire him, he wont shut up!!I stopped watching because of him, I couldnt stand it!!

Anonymous said...

I'm not a ghost hunter but in all GHI seems to be what common Ghost Hunters are all about. Unlike TAPS this group does not make any claims that would indicate that they are the best of the best. I have yet to see GHI fake any evidence. This seems to be one trait that GHI excells in over TAPS. All-in-all I say get rid of GH and keep GHI. Not that GHI is perfect in any way but to me they seems like real Ghost hunters.

Anonymous said...

THe GHI team isn't even a real orginization of ghost hunters, they are merely a rag tag crew of TAPS rejects that are attention starved A holes. Is there no residential haunts in all of Europe? What's up with Andy and his wrist mounted flashlight? He is such a friggin dweeb. Rob needs to stop Botoxing his forehead so it actually moves when he speaks... Or here's an idea...Put a ball gag in his mouth so we don't have to listen to his monotone oral diareah anymore. Barry....Well he just needs to take a long dirt nap in an Irish Faerie crossing...... This new chic they replaced Donna with is no better, Brandy is it? You'd think that if SciFI was going to cast a no talent hack like that they'd have picked someone hot for nothing more than entertainment purpose I suppose. The show is just lame...... I was unaware of the original GH team falsifying any evidence. What episode(s) did that happen on.....I swear that me and my drunken friends could pull off a far more intelligent and beleivable show...... So instead of SciFi nixing the show all together they should simply fire all these jackasses and hire some people that can actually investigate a haunted local, or at least act like they can anyway. I think someone needs to give Barry a full spectrum camera enema, but thenagain I think he'd like that. THe concept of this show has so much potential unfortunately Sci Fi fell short in their casting of it... It is just gay.........

agree with too much background music, can't hear anything. don't need music to make it more interesting (gh, i mean, no possible way to make ghi interesting). anyway, did anyone besides me notice the ghi fake "falling over" statue episode. don't know the title of episode, but the very end had the "client" telling ghi team he had video footage of staute that fell over or was pushed over? ok people, i'm a girl and i figures that one out immediately. first of all, the footage showed the statue in 2 positions: upright and horizontal, no movement in between. so fake i can't believe ghi didn't "debunk" it. the footage showed no movement of the actual falling, then showed no rocking movement after it was on its side. the stupid thing had a skirt on, it would have rocked back and forth like a seesaw. DUH! anyway, i love gh, they have had some really good shows (too much music, too much socializing about every day life, though). but ghi? get serious, guys. my 13 year old and myself call ghi "losernational" as in "Mom, losernational's on." ok i can't help but watch it, it's like a train wreck. you don't want to watch it, but you can't help yourself. y'all are right about donna. is she a freakin medium now? "i'm cold on my right fingernail, something just brushed against my hair (get out of the cobwebs already), i feel like something's here." oh, shut up, i've got to go vomit already.

Zeitgeist said...

I think that what those who are referring to detrators as "haters" fail to realize is that in the case of myself, I do not hate anyone. I have a very big difference of opinion with their methods and their practices and how they go about determining whether or not a site is or is not haunted.
You can say what you want and there are some who do seem to harbor a significant amount of angst over this show, the crew, etc. but for myself, I just despise inept people trying to pass themselves off as superior to others when they are perhaps the worst offenders of the very rules and protocols they claim to espouse. That doesn't mean just the GHI team either, Jason and Grant started TAPS and GHI is just the overseas vehicle of TAPS on an international front. Therefore it is safe to assume that Jason and Grant trained and okayed the people who are on the GHI team to be there which means that they (Jason and Grant) were responsible for GHI being who it is and where it is.
I have been a paranormal researcher for a while now and one thing that I have never had the stones to do is claim that I am "different than most other groups" because of my approach to the study of the paranormal and I certainly don't profess to have a corner on all the answers as the TAPS team seems to be all too willing to make mention of from time to time.
Information should be shared and shared freely and grandstanding at the expense of others in a field where we all should be pulling together and trying to get to the important answers is a waste of time and egotistical. I want everyone who engages in this work to be successful because that is the only way we are going to get answers.

I have to say I miss Brin H. as well.... I realize at times in Taps or the original GH show that he was irresponsable and all but I did like his style of EVP work, the provoking etc.....Donna just got goofy on GHI... Perhaps she is jealous of Chris Williams? It seems that most of the GHI team spends too much time trying to idly chit chat with a entity during an EVP session as opposed to actually asking questions.....And what is with the season finale'? IF you are going to spend any time in any of the many castles that Vlad Tepes occupied why not Hunedoara? Instead of some pile of rubble which was the castle they chose to investigate? Oh and hows about at least giving the man respect by pronouncing his name correctly? (Dustin)No wonder you received no replies.... And better yet? Those idiots were out of there before daylight? How can you proclaim a place to have no paranormal activity in a matter of hours? (wow) Somebody said it before.... How about spending a few nghts in a place, edit out the fluff and actually do a thorough investigation...... Anybody that likes GHI would have better spent their time finding old episodes of that brittish show "most haunted".... It is of the same caliber

You guys are all nuts.

These investigations are being held in Europe for pete sake...a VERY OLD place!

I honestly don't know what the blazes you are all complaining about. GHI is my absolute favorite show...not at all like Most Haunted or Paranormal State, both of which I found to be absolute nonsense.

You obviously do not know what you are talking about. Jay and Grant would not have put this group together if they did not feel that they were well qualified. I think that while you are insulting all the members of GHI you are also insulting Jay, Grant and all the other TAPS members.

Good job...you've all made total asses out of yourselves!

I think the worst part is they all show up (esp. Robb) looking like low life's. Andy is not nearly as bad as Robb. How did a guy who looks like he still hangs out with high schoolers (you know the kind) get this job. And even worse - last night, the girl who tells em where they're going next, pronounced Tepes as Papis!!! I'm mortified by these people being the face of ghost hunting. They look like the group of girls and guys who would hang out in front of the 7-11 by their Camaros.

Jason and Grant are great. They demand and deserve respect in the ghost hunting field. With that being said even the wisest of people make mistakes. If they were responsable for hand picking that group of whack jobs, well then there you have a prime example of just that... They were gravely mistaken in their choices. I personally think that they didn't have much say in the matter, and it was the decision of the Sci Fi executive producers. Dustin and Andy just needed a new gig to get thier ounk ass faces on the tele. again is all.

If I were a ghost in one of those countries I would scare the stupid shit out of each one of those mumbling English idiots. The only decent guy on the show is the one who isn't from the US. Fire them all, get Brian back, and hire those hunters who are indigenious to each country.

I can't take Andy seriously. He's no Grant. He won't shut-up...Andy's way or your stupid. Why is he an authority in this membership? I didn't like him much on the original show. The first time he picked a fight with Steve, I was hoping never to see him again.
Robb, looks like he's looking to Andy for all the answers...read the first paragraph to understand why I think this sucks again.
Donna was and still is a sweet person, I do believe she is edited this way, and I agree is sucks. Donna was a sensible light amongst the group. I miss Donna, after she went home, I refused to watch.
Brian is cool. Seems pissed off he has to take orders from Andy...as he should be. (once again refer back to paragraph 1 for why Andy Sucks) Brian has to be edited to the point of non-recognition...sucks for Brian.
Barry, is cool...same way, taking orders from Andy stifles his position as well. Sorry Barry. Andy Sucks.
GHI-a good idea, just not cast real well...ultimately if Andy was off, I would actually watch the show again.

Yeah, GHI sucks, and you gotta know that G and Jay are fully aware of it...Andy couldn't be more annoying, Barry's a pussy, Donna use to be cool, Brian just needs to stay gone, the other girl isn't worth mentioning, and Rob is just plain creepy. Dustin is the only credible investigator... What?.. are they afraid to tell the castle owners that they just flat out didn't catch anything on video? Anyone can do a show on creepy ghostly experiences. And who cares about orbs?! SCI-FI should try another International spin-off with Dustin, and let him chose his own team...without the goofy bastards from GHI... Or just send them back to retrain with G and Jay...and let Dustin do the GHI show. ===kthunder73===

Dear GH I anxiously look forward all week to the Wed night show whether new or reruns.The group you have now is a good group. I have to agree with alot of the others about certain points made on the GHI show. I think perhaps Brian would have stepped up if given the chance and the trust to pull off the new show. I think him having a family to take care of may have made him more responsible. He has the utmost respect for Jay & Grant I would think and would have (hopefully) made you proud. But, Im a watcher and don't know the full stories of his past. I watched the GHI shows every week just to get some ghost hunting in for lack of my true love GH. I admit I fell asleep alot too. I think Steve is your best sidekick obviously, but I have the best laughs when he and Tango see spiders. I am a spider hater myself. I was disappointed in the new show, Barry needs to go back to Ireland, I love the Irish but he needs to go. He's like a little girl grabbing the other persons arm and trying to get the heck outta there!! I did appreciate his many languages he could speak though. I don't need to get on Andy I think he has been raked over the coals enough by the others on here. Talking about Braian though I dont know why he left but perhaps for reasons he was'nt made the lead. Donna needs to get back to her roots of TAPS and get over her feelings. She knows thats not what she was trained for. I see why that other girl was upset. To much BULL!!! I guess we have been spoiled by Jay & Grant with the leadership and the integrity in which they ghost hunt. Happy Hunting for many years. I will continue to look forward to my weekly fix of ghost hunting. I hope to one day be able to attend a vacation with your group at the Stanley Hotel.

YOU ARE SO RIGHT! GHI SUCKS SO BAD. It's suprising they made that show suck. I was really looking forward to watching it. I tried but I just can't. It's really really bad. Barry and Donna are cool. Too bad they got stuck with the most annoying ghost hunters EVER!

The locations are awesome. Shannon is an azz with NO personality at all!! Donna just annoys me. Andy Andrews should have never gotten on the plane to go over. He should have stayed at home like a good little boy. Robb is OK, not great, but alright. WTF is up with Barry? He's more skiddish then a five year old on the first day of kindergarden.

I think at times the group was a little tough on Brian,I kinda felt sorry for him at times.I think all and all he was there from the start before they became somewhat famous so I think he was the most straight up even though he may have fucked up from time to time.Now on the other hand this Andy character-real-I think not.WTF is up with this dude-my husband does a great impression-GOOD FOR A LAUGH!! I MISS THE ORIGINAL!

If you haven't stuck this in your jackass head yet: Jason and Grant HAND PICKED the team leaders, and the whole team, for that matter. So you're slapping them in the face multiple times by posting this. And if you don't like it, don't watch it. Find something better to do with your life and time other than writing a huge blog to bash everything that you don't like.

Actually, it's more likely that the producers of the Sci-Fi channel goaded Jay and Grant into picking a team for Ghost Hunters: International because they didn't want to lose out on viewers while the season of Ghost Hunters was over.

Well, if Jason and Grant HAND PICKED this group, then Jason and Grant should STOP HAND PICKING groups. They dropped the ball, the group SUCKS!!!!!!!!!

Brian H is the biggest dissapointment on the show, I am glad he left GH.

Both shows are entertaining. You people with all the negative criticism.....You must be watching a lot of shows to come up with all the comments. The ONLY time I ever thought GH's faked something was on the Halloween episode. When the load voice said, "YOU SHOULD NOT BE HERE!" Jason didn't even respond. I think he was a little embarassed and just kept listening for some footsteps that he heard. It was overly done and he knew it. SAD...Oh and I also find Andy extremely annoying. I swear he's going to trigger a seizure in someone with that voice. Thank goodness for DVR

Diddo everyone I think... I hate huanted shows because they always make normal things appear to be ghosts, like wind and dust particals. TAPS won me over with their methodical debunking. Now we have to settle for Barry's magical camera (which in the peru fort show most likely captured a gnat flying around close to the lense). The only reason it didn't show on the other camera shots was because they were all lined up (so what is flying very nearly in front of one would not be caught in the others). I hate it! Bring back TAPS err the real Ghost Hunters.

The show is terrible. Ghosts in Europe that speak English. Good one. A ghost hunter that shits his pants every 2 mins. And 0 investigation.

Btw, Donna is the queen of drama....
Oh I feel this oh I feel that...BS!

Anonymous said...

My BIGGEST problem for this how is really fundamental. If you go to Denmark, or Germany, or Austria and what not - won't the ghosts speak the native language? Especially if they were around centuries ago? Why would you speak English to Danish ghosts?

If they answer, or if they respond, I seriously doubt that it will be in English. If you are an Austrian ghost (for example) in the 1400's and if you were asked to "do something" or "throw a rock" in English would you?

Oh, wait, maybe Ghosts carry a universal translator device like Dr. Who does... it is SiFi afterall.

Anonymous said...

I agree with almost everything you say, except that Donna was never cool in the original GH series. She always needed to keep her feelings in check. I also think Brian fell victim to required drama for those episodes w/ no activity. What else would entertain the viewers watching an investigation of a dead-case? That's not saying Brian's antics did not irritate me.

But generally, I lost interest very quickly in GHI for just about the same reasons you do.

Yeah GHI sucks.

Robb - he has some creepy eyes, looks like he's going to snap.

Andy - is a sally boy. He's just plain annoying and I wanna just strangle the little bastard. Way over dramatic too.

Brian - He's always seeing things that no one else can't nor the camera.

Barry - This guy would probably fuck his full spectrum camera if he could. The guy is a drama queen.

Dustin - Take off that stupid hat! Enough said.

The others aren't worth mentioning.

So, I was watching GHI last night and it was the one when they were in Brazil... but my comment could be for every episode and every place the go where English isn't the first language. Did the ghosts at the cultural center in Brazil REALLY understand the questions the team was asking? Or how about in any other country? In general, do ghosts from another country understand English???? This is a question that boggles my mind... I wouldn't think so but how does the GHI team figure???

I used to sort of like it. I can't stand Robb, Andy has little man syndrome & Brandy's voice is SOOOO annoying! I used to tivo it all the time, but I took it off my to do's.

Hes a poor leader, poor speaker, poor actor, un-photogenic, lazy and cocky as hell!

I understand he thinks he is the head of the team, but how about getting off his lazy ass and start doing some investigation himself. Do you notice he doesn't catch anything on his own he only asks what others heard, then orders them to do things while he just sits there? He even goes so far as to order the supposed ghosts to do what he wants.

What a complete ass...yes, Rob Demarest, you are a complete ASS!

Andy is actually the only person who is pulling their weight in this show.

I think that ghost hunters international should get a person that speaks the country's language. Do they think that all ghosts in every country speak english? It's stupid they will get more responses if they speak in the original language! I like the effort of it but I think they could try harder, they quit too easily. They should stay all night, then leave in the morning. They give up too early. I could do a better show than what they do!

Tonight Andy talked about the "universal consciousness theory" that states that ghosts can speak in any language they want to in EVPs...even Barry looked skeptical, and he swallows everything. If this is real at all, and these people were really trying to get at the truth, wouldn't it occur to them that the fact that their EVPs are almost always in English MIGHT be a sign that EVPs are not actually the voices of dead people? Of course not--because they believe completely in all of the so-called "theories" that are out there.

Anonymous said...

My personal feelings are that they are not spending enough time in these old places to get a full grasp of what is really going on in the paranormal sense. However once you debunk some things, it does lend credibility to the scientific end. I understand why they do that. It makes total sense. However, I would love to see Ghost Hunters International spend 3 days at some of these older castles and places like Paranormal State does to lend extra credibility to their findings. I've been a bit disappointed in some findings. Also, I'm tired of hearing about all the evil spirits. Not all spirits are evil. Some are quite interesting and some are aching for contact. Some are just lost.
I'm not into the personal drama of TAPS. That was a big turnoff for me. I don't give a fig about what people thought of Brian. I felt he was a good investigator and yes, he was scapegoated but we don't need to know every frigging detail of Jason and Grant's decisions or hear every damn arguement. That detracts from credibility. I want to see and hear the evidence they collect. That is what is fascinating. Unfortunately spending just 6-8 hours is often not long enough. I do like GHI and I'm not taking pot shots at anyone. I just would like to see more time spent at some places like Chillingham Castle and Huneodora Castle. Old castles are fascinating, so much history. Just one EVP is not enough.

is this the im miserable and need to bash people sit? im from pa and not one person i talk to has a bad thing to say about this show. condeming someone for having a rosery on the show is just ludicris! apparently you have no clue what your talking about i do not look at this show as relegiouse in any means. but if you have education and the experiance of ghost hunting you all would know its about the after life!!! trying to explore wat goes on when we die, heaven? hell?purgatory?the only thing that would ever disturb me about the show is that sometimes the spirits are crying out for help and the team does not try to help them cross over! witch may result in a small punishment someday! i understand they are doing this for there own peice of mind BUT..i think there should be some kind of help involved!!!!!!!

Ghost are our friends. They keep us warm at night and talk to us during the day. They hold our hands when it's thundering out. They even give us little gifts at Christmas. My "friend" is named Leroy he lived back in the 1700's, and died when a horse kicked him in the head. When I see him at night he has a big dent in the middle of his forehead. So, for a long time i called him Denty, until he told me his name was Leroy. GHI has no idea how to contact the spirts. Before they go on another "case" they should contact me, so they can get into contact with Leroy. He will explain everything to them.

Anonymous said...

I admit that GHI should be taken off air, restructured and/or never come back on.
At least Andy's gone, and Rob...well he's less than spectacular, that's obvious enough. His bad acting and lack of leadership skills should have tipped off the show's producers that he wasn't right for the job. I would like to know why they brought him back for a second season. Perhaps that they are in fact restructuring the show...just one player at a time, one season at a time. Maybe next season, "Scare Bear," aka; Barry the Irishman will be next.
We can criticize all of GHI's players all day and night...but who's really responsible for this show's awfulness? The show's producers that's who.
G and J rock!

I tell you this way...TAPS were first here and that´s the reason, why GHI doesn´t work for you (not all of you, of course). I think that Robb is amazing and that´s all i need to say. Yes, Donna is one thing what destroys it in some moments, but i think GHI is really great and I´m sure, that Jay and Grant picked up this people for some reason - and I am sure THEY chose them. When you don´t like, don´t watch it. I think that´s as great as TAPS. Well...hate Shannon, that´s the fact...GHI and TAPS - both rocks!!!

One thing I really hate is how even if they can't find sufficient evidence they make like it's a FACT that there is and never was any paranormal activity essentially making out the clients to be liars. Also they often do not reveal all of the evidence they find during the show and analysis to the client at the end of the show.

A farting ghost is called the Jersey City effect. Basically, a ghost farting smells like Jersey city on a hot summer day with no breeze. If, however, there is a breeze and the ghost farts then it's known as the wayward smell, or also known as a ghost fart in the breeze effect which the phrase was coined by the famous ghost hunter Al B. Deadsoon PHD. My next lesson will be about ghosts who suffer from depression and what steps they take to combat this problem. Please feel free to read my books, Ghostly Gases, and the soon to be released, Sad but still haunting.

GHI, well that's little 3 letter acronym says it all. It stands for Get Help Immediately, this show needs more help than a Jay or Grant, and I wouldn't want those 2 helping anyways. I think they are incompetent idiots, and as for Brian, goofy or not, fool or not, he was a founding member of taps or did you not know this. They pushed him out and used Steve (the coward) to do so. He is also a Military Veteran so respect that. Donna is a beautiful and intelligent woman, as for her odd behaviors in GHI, it seemed so unnatural that it reminded me of scripted behavior. Her ignorant counterpart Sharon, absolute and utter dead weight as stated earlier. Robb seems to have an issue, and if I'm not mistaken it’s called CCUTB, (corn cob up the backside) he is so rigid and uptight, hey dude relax ghosts are people too. Andy is your largest waste of resources, and should not be allowed in the field at all. I have no problem with Mr. Hair Spray Dustin at all, seems to be an ok fellow. Barry, the Irish speaking paranoid fool, well there that says it all no more need be said, except dude not every place has a ghost or spirit, so you must be doing drugs if you see things every single time, and you need to share those drugs so we can actually see what you do. For informational purposes they (syfy) tried to do something different with GHI because they started losing share point in the markets when Brian left Taps, then when Donna left, they lost massively in the 21-30 male view crowds. So Syfy in their “wisdom” of wisdoms decided to make this new nightmare, hoping to gather a more worldwide audience, it failed. I managed season 1 while choking every episode, and wanting to choke the producers of this show. What’s with all the negative sprits they find? Is that all these countries have? Sheesh I don’t buy that. What’s with the EVIL? It didn’t seem strange the first couple shows but just got idiotic after awhile. I stopped watching it and went back to GH! Anyways that’s my 2 cents worth, and honestly I don’t know why I wasted 2 cents on this worthless show.

Hi, just wanted to say that jay, grant, and company are cock-suckers. Show is terrible and should be renamed..."RUNNING SCARED".

Every time there is a bump in the night 3 things are going to happen

2) they run like bitches. if you are going to run, why be there in the first place?

3) the assh0le steve covered in tattoes, scared of small spiders, but sees a giant d!ck and falls in love, hilarious.

Their forums are a joke too...sigh at free speech.

Jay and grant should stick to toilets, speaking of which, I have to sh!t.

Dont worry people this show will be gone soon, you cant come up empty handed every show and keep people watching. If mike rowe never got any dirty jobs would his show called dirty jobs be a hit? I wish regular Ghost Hunters with Jay and Grant would go back To just them with know one else in the scenes. Steve can do the tech work but stay off the damn camera with the spider crap I dont watch to see that. I have 3. year old son I can see him jump at spiders. Basically anybody ob thr show besides Jay and Grant ruin it. The girls are the worts,, "you feel that" " Ive got the chills" these broads absolutly never get any evidence and never will. I want the show to be Jay and Grant only they seem ti be the only ones who can get things to happen.

When I was a wee child back in Ireland I stayed at the home of a woman named Hilda. Hilda said that in her previous life she had dated Denty the ghost. Although, at the time she was seeing him he didn't have a dented head, and his head was nice and round. She told me that he went into haunting after his untimely death, when a horse kicked him in the head. The money isn't good with hauntings but he gets to sleep in in the morning but he does work nights. He usually has holidays off, except for October 31, then he works a double shift. He needs to wear the required uniform of a white sheet, so he's bought stock in Clorox. He's met Jason and Grant on one occassion, but they didn't want to use the encounter as evidence, because someone was wearing cheap perfume and it might contaminate the findings.

I find myself disappointed after reading this thread that people actually think either of the shows are real. They are obviously all actors, Jason and grant work for a plumbing company? Come on guys think logically, ever struck anyone as odd that they take a camera crew to work? I wonder how many fools have used their plumbing company in the false hope that they turn up haha.

The other issue I have with the whole thing is how they claim to be scientific, do any of them actually hold any science credentials? Because if they did they dont seem to know the first thing about scientific methodology with the biggest problem being their sample sizes and frequency. You cannot sample at one site on a single occasion and make any sort of claims from that. On top of this to be truly scientific any evidence or findings must be subject to peer review, but you would be hard pressed to find any real scientist who would take this seriously.

Ultimately this is arguing a moot point as in the end they are just reality tv shows and that is all. They have no real credibility whatsoever and anyone who thinks it does is in my opinion misguided. Dumb TV for Dumb people.

And i know in rebuttal much of you will say "well you obviously watch it" and my answer is I do not watch it. I suffer it occasionally in the hope that something real actually is experienced as I am genuinely intrigued by the paranormal. Although at this stage it seems about as viable as religion.

Barry - the guy sees ghosts everywhere, right. Dustin - I can't take him seriously with the spikey-frosted-tips and the upside down visor, needs to be more presentable to be taken seriously. Rob - this man is uncomfortable to watch, lose the skinny beard, too, unpresentable. Ashley - she's alright, but not bringing much to the table. Joe - he's alright, but wouldn't be missed if he left. And, at the risk of getting too personal (but I have to share this comment, can no longer remain quiet), Brandy's voice drives me insane! Oh, it's just too much! She seems like a cool person, but I can't take the voice - Kermit the Frog with a head-cold. Can't recall the names of others involved, which is telling.

Overall, an uncomfortable - not to be confused with scary - presentation. Shame, this GHI puts TAPS into unecessarily in question. Keep up the good work, TAPS. GHI? Weak.

I'm not a hater, believe me, but, Brian is a douchebag. Every time he opens his mouth he sounds like a moron and I feel like I just lost a couple brain cells that I will never get back. My daughter and I are avid fans of the original GH (TAPS), and are impressed with the new season. I think that bc of the longstanding relationship that Jason and Grant had with Brian, they felt bad about letting him go so they passed him on to GHI. I bet if u asked Barry and everyone else how they really feel about him, they would say that they resent Jason and Grant for passing their crap-for-brains "friend" on to them.

GHI is great! Where else can you see all these fantastic old sites all around the world? No where! Even if you vacationed in all these counties you wouldn't have the time to visit all these places and you certainly wouldn't have the access. It's art people let it flow over you. If you don't like it there's a hundred other channels to choose from or here's an idea... get a life and go out and experience something real for yourselves or have you become so used to seeing you "leaders/losers" in the media bash other people that you feel you have drop down to their level. Seriously, put down the sandwich, get off your butt and go outside!

They are all fake to some extent, one thing that annoys me is that it is always shot at night when most of the hauntings are during the day. I realize most of these places are tourist spots and revenue makers, but still, investigate during the day sometimes. Their debunking techniques are somewhat archaic, not all orbs are bugs and dust, so get over it. The only one worth looking at is that fine ass kris williams. only reason why i even watched any of it. Youtube has better investigations than both these shows. How Robb got to be leader is beyond me...Need to shut both shows down for good.

No wonder anonymous won't give his name! he's an idiot who has to use the F-Bomb as part of every sentence!
If he doesn't BELIEVE, then why is he wasting his time by signing on?

If he is just curious, he should do his OWN research, (my husband was a total disbeliever but was willing to go on a 'hunt' at a local location, (135 year old jail)
he came home laughing,thought it was just a bunch of rednecks looking for a good time, but when we uploaded the digital voice recordings..he was totally shocked, we could plainly hear two spirits discussing the group, why they were there, and if they should worry about it!
Have you ever researched (Science Channel) the STRING THEORY? no time to explain here, but my husband says if there is something to it, this would be the reason.

Have watched many episodes and am still waiting to see a real ghost, or at least the same thing the cast members are looking at when they're busy going "OH! WHAT WAS THAT?!?!" But all the camera ever shows (with a few rare exceptions) is the cast members' faces. Sorry, guys, but I already know what you look like-I wanna see what you're seeing. Unless you're not really seeing anything...HEY! I need another job and I can do that! "OOH!! WHAT WAS THAT?!? DID YOU HEAR SOMETHING??!!" See? I'd be a natural. Am I hired? C'mon guys, step up to the plate. Either show us the action or admit there really isn't as much there as you'd like us to believe. Oh, and your audio ain't so good, either. Half the time you're busy talking over whatever it is that we're supposed to be hearing...Me thinks I smell a rat. A FAKE rat...

GHI is a joke. They are in Peru trying to speak to spanish speaking ghosts in English....When will they figure out that not all spirits speak English?

Forget GH & GHI. The best ghosts and evidence are on The Travel Channel with Ghost Adventures. 3 guys, no BS.

I beg to differ, everyone. I LOVE ROB! I think he's hot and stop telling him how to do his job, cos he knows how to do it best. So fuck off, u Rob Naysayers!

Saw that someone mentioned that ghosts doesn´t speak English, actually i think ghosts dont have a lingo barrier, so they would understand whatever you said in any language, hence that exorcism victims has spoken many languages of mankind, like hebru german latin etc, hard to define but if a spirit has been around for thousands of years they would be preeeettty intelligent. Regarding Ghost hunters, there is a dude thats a demonologist but the appear more like parish/priest:men then a real demonologist, thought the job of an demonologist is to state what kind of demon or otherworldly creature they are facing, and how to expell, defend or bond it to yourself, hence demonlogists aint afraid of demons, like Valefar etc. Seems most of the people on these shows have no clue why they are there or what they are doing, why not get some people that actually know and understand this stuff? They have no symbolists or occultists to refer too, perhaps they need the Tobin's Spirit Guide from ghostbusters to avoke their GH skills once again *BOOOHHH*

Andy Andrews loves his crack-cocaine, as evidenced in, The Converted Church - S01 E06; Anyone familiar with witnessing the signs and effects of the drug know what I'm talking about... A belated comment, I know, yet felt compelled to enquire if anyone else clearly noticed it??
