Some thoughts from this episode:
I wasn’t a big fan of the paranormal investigation of those supposedly haunted ruins; mostly because I don’t think they really did a whole lot to collect any real evidence or debunk anything. But, even with me saying that, I have to say this was one of my favorite investigations because, even though they didn’t catch any real evidence of ghosts, that family living there was one of the creepiest families I have ever seen.
As I told my wife, somebody should really buy those people a TV since they obviously have way too much time on their hands. However, as I also mentioned to her, I also found myself wondering if they know something about those ruins (perhaps a secret diamond mine or something) that they don’t want people to know about and the “ghosts” are nothing more than an elaborate hoax to scare people away.
Speaking of that family, was I the only one thinking “what do they see in him” when Jakob Marley (yes, he has the same name as the Charles Dickens character) revealed he has three wives and 25 kids?
The search for the Mongolian Death Worm, quite honestly, was one of those that just really seemed to be doomed from the start. First, they are searching for something that lives under ground. Secondly, they obviously picked a bad time of the year to search considering it got well below zero after dark and everyone knows worms don’t come out in cold weather.
What they really needed on this investigation was a small camera that could be dropped down into a hole rather than just a microphone. Without that, I just don’t see how they could expect to gather any sort of evidence. Hearing sounds from a hole doesn’t conclude anything either way.
I think, given the fact they didn’t find what they were searching for, it would have been nice if we would have been able to learn a bit more about the dinosaur bones they found; just so we could have taken something of interest away from this investigation.
