The new season of GHOST HUNTERS starts tonight. For those who don't know, 'Ghost Hunters' chronicles the adventures of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (T.A.P.S. for short.) After a dull run of Ghost Hunters International, the real deal finally returns to the airwaves just in time for the haunting season to kick into full swing.

Don't get me wrong - GHI is okay. It just seems that with all the history of Europe and its ancient buildings, castles, and crypts at their disposal, you'd think the ever-changing GHI team could capture a little more compelling evidence than disembodied groans. It just seems to me the original Ghost Hunters team appears a little more consistent with their reveals - and the previews for the upcoming season seem to hold much promise.

As one who has participated in a professional paranormal investigation, I have a keen interest in this show. While there seems to be a lot of sensationalism with the program that is inherent to the television format, it is easily overlooked for the anticipation the shows delivers in it's mid-week time slot. And now that GHI has wrapped - we can pop the popcorn, chill the rootbeer, and settle in under a cozy blanket for another great season of the 'real' Ghost Hunters.
