There's an interview with the bald bearded bro, and he said that when they signed up they were legitimate ghost hunters with experience, but sometimes for the show they would come out of a place without anything, so the producers would tell them to go back and fake it.
There have been a few really good hard to disprove things that they've captured on film over the years, but for the most part the show runs on them ~feeling totally spooped bro~ with their retarded "woah man look at my goosebumps" "dude it's so cold right here" and the fucking retarded "spirit box" thing they use, and Zak randomly losing control and punching things like he's being possessed or something which is all dumb
>>17261127 That "spirit box" scans through multiple radio frequencies, so if another individual had a short wave transmitter synchronized to the sweep rate of the "spirit box" they could send any message they wanted.
I believe there is more to this thing we call reality, though I highly doubt everything on this series is credible.
Nothing on tv is real, even the news is choreographed to manipulate the minds of the sleeping masses. As for ghosts which is what I presume you are asking. No, it is appointed to man to live but once, then be judged. There are however, demonic spirits which masquerade as the deceased.
Probably it is the most real ghost show on TV. There is a possibility for fakeness but for the most part, it seems genuine. Even if it's faked sometimes, I refuse to believe all the haunted places they visited the evidence was faked all the time. Places like Poveglia and all those terrible asylums must harbor some negative spirits.
>>17267784 Honestly I think a lot of what was shown on Ghost Hunters was real, and I think part of that show's decline has to do with the introduction of Ghost Adventures and the way the show is filmed to be less about debunking and more about "OH SHIT BRO I'M GETTING GOOSEBUMPS!" and listing every piece of dust as evidence.
I like the show, but you aren't going to convince me that at least a quarter of what's shown isn't scripted for television. They make it hard for actual ghost hunters or other shows because they focus so hard on being in your face and crazy and having all this evidence that they've cornered the market on spoopy shit
I'm not here to contend for the reality of a specific show, but I do want to tell everyone about my experiences with the SB7 and various other pieces of radio-scan hardware billed as 'spirit boxes.'
I'm a long term hobby ghost hunter with just under 20 years experience under my belt, 8 of which have been with my current crew. We use an older SB7 and have amazing results with it and I can confirm that you won't ever need someone on your crew trying to fake it in order to hear some spoopy shit through its little speaker.
We had actually thought similarly when we first got it from Dr Stubrich, that it could be fooled by someone using a similar interface scanner and just transmitting intermittently. No such luck. The device scans unlike any other AM or FM band seeker at such an interval as to make it impossible to match without a transmitter made with almost the exact same innards, and none exists.
My guess with the GhostBros guys is that they have a metric shit ton of footage and are constantly hearing things through the spirit box, but only the really worthwhile ones make it to the tv show.
>>17270144 Man I would love to get my hands on a spirit box and just set it up in a room I get bad vibes in. At the same time I might want to use that room again in the near future so why poke that bear?
>>17269946 >the way the show is filmed to be less about debunking and more about "OH SHIT BRO I'M GETTING GOOSEBUMPS!" and listing every piece of dust as evidence.
Except GA does attempt to debunk things and isn't quick to call all orbs, well, orbs. They will differentiate between dust and orbs to show you how they differ, etc.
Ghost Hunters has gone downhill for a few reasons:
-They RARELY catch anything; meanwhile, GA gets far more evidence -They have horrible structuring of the show. Every episode boils down to >What was that?! >cut to commercial >Hello? >cut to commercial >final 5 minutes of show reviewing evidence >*GASP* >cut to commercial >come back and it's barely anything
>>17261143 Someone could, potentially, send messages; however, what makes them convincing is that the Spirit Box isn't broadcasting the questions being asked and it gets responses to them, i.e. if someone were sending messages via frequencies it would require that they know what questions are being asked exactly when they're asked. Not that it's impossible, but it takes far more work to set all of that up than waiting for responses -- which they sometimes don't even get.
>>17270427 Ahh lame. I'm not really up and up on the series, I only see what I can get on netflix because I'm broke af. I'd be interested in seeing the original movie that apparently spawned the tv series deal...I don't even know if that's out there.
>>17261143 Yea, sometimes they do get some great visual shit but that spirit box always pisses me off. Like, alot of the stuff I can believe they catch in the show but everytime they pull that thing out I think 'this could easily be faked, and all the answers are so short and too specific'
I can't remember what episode this is in. I want to say it's in a haunted house attraction but I might be wrong. At some point during one of their escapades they were trying to coerce a demon out and asked for its name. The response over the spirit box/whatever device they had was "legion." After they were done yelling bro about it, Zak's voice over explained it meant they were in the presence of many demons.
The reason I bring this up is because Legion as a demon's name holds a very specific biblical significance where a man was supposedly possessed by so many demons that was the name they gave Jesus.
I know that seems like a weird thing to latch onto in the series, but to me it seemed like they just glossed right over it. Ghost Adventures always had a very Christian lean to it (bleeping out supposedly satanic readings, proclaiming when they found a 'real life witch O: O:'), and Zak loves him some exorcisms. It just bugged me. A quick google search would show a bit of significance behind an entity calling itself Legion...
...but I can't decide if it was sloppy writing, or if it was actually a subversion to make it seem more realistic, showing that they don't have all the answers because it is such a rare phenomenon.
