Some thoughts from last night’s episode:
I’m going to start out by saying, at first I wasn’t overly enthused about the new Thursday night time slot; simply because I hate it when my favorite shows change days and times. But, I found I do like the fact it is now on at 8 p.m. (central time) rather than 9. With me having to be at work first thing the next morning, it’s always nice to be able to watch my show and get that extra hours worth of sleep.
That temple in Cambodia, Angkor Wat, was amazing. It’s hard to believe people carved all those images using only the primitive tools that were available to them 800 years ago.
So, I wonder if Jason, Grant and the rest of the crew from Ghost Hunters ever get jealous over the evidence Gates catches when he’s hunting spirits. That human-like image on the thermal imaging camera definitely scores higher than a door closing on its own.
However, I am a bit curious about some of their other evidence. First, how is it the spirits in an 800-year-old Cambodian temple happen to speak perfect English? Also, am I the only one who thought that scream they caught sounded more like an animal than a person?
I loved that no baseball caps sign they found outside the temple. It might have seemed odd. But, it makes plenty of sense considering wearing a hat into a sacred place like that shows a lack of respect.
I wasn’t as impressed with the second case on this episode; the one that had them traveling to Canada in search of the Ogopogo Lake Monster. I have seen enough of this show to know, whenever they try to catch evidence of a lake creature, they always come up short. There’s just too much area to cover, the water is always too murky and, when they do see something, they can’t get close enough to it to determine what it is.
I also couldn’t help but notice they missed one thing when talking about the creature. They mentioned the sightings and the fact the lake is big enough, deep enough and has enough caves for a creature that size to hide from humans. But, there was no mention about what it would eat. When they were under water, it didn’t look like they were finding too many fish and I would suspect a creature that size would need plenty to eat (and, judging by the teeth in the descriptions, it isn’t a plant eater).
