Some thoughts from last night’s episode:
I’ve said it before but it’s worth repeating. Even though I’m not as big of a fan of this show as I used to be, one of the main reasons I tune into it has nothing to do with the investigations; it has to do with some of the little pieces of American history I didn’t know about before. In this case, I would have never known about the Sloss Furnaces (a former industrial plant in Alabama) or all the people who were injured or died there due to accidents. It made me want to read more about it.
The first time they had Meat Loaf as a special guest, I loved it. This time around, I wasn’t as big of a fan. I think I would like it better if he worked more as a team player. Instead, he tends to take over the investigation whenever he’s on camera and the other, supposedly more seasoned investigators just seem to go out of their way to contradict him whenever he says something.
I will, however, mention I liked how he was able to apparently have a conversation with spirit named Paul. I am a bit curious why Jason and Grant didn’t show that evidence during their reveal.
My wife and I have been watching re-runs of the show Destination Truth. In one of the episodes, Josh Gates conducted an investigation in a forest that was rumored to be haunted and brought his evidence to Jason and Grant. When reviewing his evidence, they made a point to mention he had to discount every piece of audio evidence based on the fact they were outdoors in an uncontrolled environment. I’m a bit curious why they didn’t do the same thing in this episode when they were outdoors and collected audio evidence.
That being said, the video evidence was somewhat interesting. This includes the footage of the shadow that looks like a man sitting. However, I wish they would have explained why it was so tiny.
