Paranormal on TV: Fact Versus Fantasy

Introduction Since 2000, there has been a rising interest in the paranormal. Television is no stranger to trends, and a plethora of new shows have emerged, often in the vein of “reality TV”. How much is fact, how much is fantasy? Presented by: Brandy Stark, founder of the SPIRITS of St. Petersburg

The Good Makes paranormal investigation seem less “freakish” (I was asked if I was a Satanist when I first started taking an interest). Shows there is some difference between occult belief and paranormal investigation Shows the use of equipment Brings enthusiasm and interest to a field that has been long neglected Starting to bring a “norm” for ghost hunting groups, which are largely unregulated. Shows what CAN be found out there

Makes paranormal investigation seem less “freakish” (I was asked if I was a Satanist when I first started taking an interest).

Shows there is some difference between occult belief and paranormal investigation

Shows the use of equipment

Brings enthusiasm and interest to a field that has been long neglected

Starting to bring a “norm” for ghost hunting groups, which are largely unregulated.

Shows what CAN be found out there

The Bad Brings out “bandwagon hoppers” – craze interests (see MUFON, 1990s, X-Files) Starting to hear of cases where people “copy” Ghost Hunters – and bring up situations (psychological or ghostly) that they can’t control Starting to bring out groups who want to make money doing paranormal investigation; moves it from interest to business New groups popping up – untrained, lack of experience

The Bad More for skeptics to work with. Are individuals motivation for ghosts, or motivation for fame? Questions on how accurate are the findings? We all know that TV audiences do not like “boring shows” New cultural studies indicate we are losing the ability to distinguish between entertainment and reality Is reality TV “real”?

Is reality TV “real”?

The Reality Episodes usually last 1 hour Almost always seem to get something, and it’s usually “big” Extensive budget Does not show background research, work, or the “boring” parts of field research Investigations can last for days (a minimum of 3 – 4 hours for starters) Not every investigation finds phenomena (5% – 10% are memorable) Volunteer-based, less $$ for equipment (Thermal Imagers: $6,000 up) Experience background research,work, and the less “dramatic” aspects to investigation TV Groups

The Reality Does not show the “screening” of investigations – how are locations chosen? What is the status of the homeowner? Public investigation – repercussions for homeowners (there are some rumors that homeowners felt slighted by the way the shows presented them). Public investigations: Good for business? (intentions for investigation) Do not see a lot of repeated investigation: time/interest I (and others) have screened investigations; homeowners range from terrified, to pranksters, to the mentally ill, to the simply curious. Often private and smaller investigations, sensitivity to homeowners. Local to area; can repeat investigations, rule out phenomena, build case histories TV Groups
