Cameron Takes a look at the show “Ghost Adventures” and how these guys seem to just make shit up as they go along and yell at walls. The show is a total load, but a funny load at-that.
“Ghost Adventures” is a show where three men, Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin are total assholes to ghosts on the Travel Channel. In ‘Adventures’ these three men are “locked-down” in a supposedly haunted building, home or asylum and forced, well, they force themselves, to spend the night searching for any evidence of ghosts or paranormal activity in said haunted facilities. These guys aren’t your normal ghost hunters, or paranormal investigators, these guys are just total dicks to these “possible” ghosts. I should let it be known, before I get into this, that I don’t believe in ghosts and never will, but it sure as hell is really funny to watch these dicks yell at walls.
‘Adventures’ started in 2008 on the Travel Channel, much like the other paranormal investigation T.V. shows it had limited success, mainly due to the fact that searching for ghosts isn’t the most fun thing to watch on television, it is when it’s a fictional movie, but when it’s a reality based T.V. show it becomes very boring, watching people with “EMP” meters stare into the darkness and hope to pick up a reading. “Ghost Hunters,” for example, doesn’t have anywhere near the redeeming qualities that ‘Adventures’ has at all, it always seems as if they’re trying to only de-bunk theories on ghost instead of trying to prove them. Where is the fun in that, I want these possible ghosts to be real and I want you to enforce this; not try and de-bunk it, why the hell would you just waste my time teasing me for half-an-hour until the final minute mark where they reveal that it was all bullshit.
‘Adventures’ on the other hand has no worries in terms of de-bunking the idea of ghosts being everywhere; because in ‘Adventures’, ghosts are everywhere and only Zak Bagans’ and the boys can see these ghosts that are everywhere. There isn’t a single episode where they don’t have some-type of experience that proves that there is paranormal activity wherever you go. Your using a Porto-potty at Cochella, guess what there’s probably a ghost in there. That B&B you and your girlfriend went to over the summer for your anniversary, that bitch has ghosts in it too. I think you get the point, there are ghosts in everything.
Bagan calls himself a skeptic in the opening credits; saying “I never believed in ghosts until I came face-to-face with one.”
Since Bagan has dumped his skepticism he now finds it much easier to call out ghosts like a playground nerd who finally mustered up the courage to call out the playground bully. Constantly Bagans’ antagonizes what supposed spirits he may be after. He also is very quick to throw his fellow cameraman to the wolves. Whenever faced with a challenge of staying in some type of dungeon or cavern for a few minutes Bagan, as some self-declared leader, demands that his cameramen, either one really, go into these places of terror. Look, as I said, I don’t believe in ghost, but I do on the other hand believe that being locked up in a morgue on a slab that hundreds if not thousands of bodies laid on is goddamn scary-as-hell.
This video will show an example on how much these guys are total douches, to not only ghosts, but too the people who watch this show and actually believe what they’re seeing is real. Zak is basically groped by a supposed ghost while in the Jennie House at Gettysburg. You see that, these a-holes don’t care if it’s American history there’s ass groping ghosts they have to investigate.
This video has a fantastic line in the beginning from Aaron Goodwin, cameraman extraordinaire, he says, “there’s a theory that ghost can’t travel over or through water,” Goodwin continues. “This theory is true, meaning all the ghosts on this island are still there.” What?! they’re freaking ghosts, they should be able to travel wherever the hell they want. Also, They do some EVP crap and that stuff is always funny.
On that, I bid you adieu and if you are ever anywhere, always remember that there are probably ass-grabbing ghosts everywhere and all you have to do is yell at them obnoxiously and they may leave you alone.Mainly because Ghosts aren’t real.
