The Top Ten Paranormal TV Shows

With the Halloween season coming soon, there’s bound to be a ton of spooky movies and TV shows available to watch. I thought I’d talk a little about some of my current favorite paranormal shows, in case you are looking for something new to watch. I’m only covering shows that are still shooting or still on the air. They are in no particular order.

  1. Ghost Hunters.

This show follows a team of paranormal investigators on their cases. They focus on collecting evidence to show property owners and attempt to use science and technology to understand paranormal phenomena. Their team pioneered a lot of ghost hunting techniques used today.

  1. Supernatural

This is a fun series about two brothers who are constantly forced to deal with a massive amount of paranormal creatures. The show got its roots in urban legends and mythology and most of the episodes are really well researched. Even though this show is pure fiction, you can still learn a lot about the history of paranormal lore from watching it.

  1. Monster Quest

This show sends teams out in search of legends like Bigfoot and The Loch Ness Monster. It was one of the first shows of its kind, and approached cryptozoology with respect and a scientific hand.

  1. Ghost Adventures

This one is a three person ghost hunting team that focuses less on science and more on entertainment. Spooky intros, ghostly history, and over-the-top reactions are the focus of this show.

  1. The Walking Dead

This zombie show is beautifully shot and well developed. When you’re watching it, it’s easy to think you’re watching a feature film.

  1. Fact or Faked

This is a reality show that takes strange internet videos and tries to find logical explanations for them. Most of the time, they’re successful.

  1. Destination Truth

This one blends ghost hunting, monster hunting, travel, and humor. A lot of the focus is on the strange situations the team ends up in, and occasionally they find something paranormal in the process.

  1. Paranormal Witness

People retell stories of hauntings or spooky experiences. There are quite a few shows like this, but this one sets itself apart by including photos and videos taken by the people themselves.

  1. Haunted Highway

This is a fairly new show, where two investigators travel the US to research local legends and stories. The fact that there are only two people on their shoots increases their chances of running into strange creatures (because large groups tend to make a lot of noise,) and they have found some petty cool stuff.

  1. The Vampire Diaries

A teen drama about two vampire brothers, and the girl they are in love with. You probably won’t learn much by watching this show, but you will be entertained.

What are your favorite paranormal shows?


    Why American men should boycott American women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

    1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

    2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

    3. False sexual harassment charges (men are now afraid to even talk to women in the office because all it takes is one woman to make up a false sexual harassment charge and then the man's career is finished)

    4. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

    5. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

    6. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

    99.9 percent of American and western women are liars, hypocrities, and criminals, who support women committing crimes against men. Women refuse to condemn their fellow women who destroy men's lives. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

    A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

    -25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
    -25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
    -85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
    -70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
    -The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

    Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.


  2. I have seen Ghost Hunters a few times but have never been really impressed. The guy's getting all worked up about noises but you never really seem to see much, I find.
