I gave up on MH quite a while ago - see my pontifications on various MH threads passim. I'm sure deep down they really do want to capture something tangible on camera, but if they don't they'll make it entertaining anyway - and this, along with Deggsy's little moments and the discovery that it's scripted is what screws any credibility they may ever have had.

It's fun and all, but I'm tired of watching the same pantomime time after time.

I couldn't agree more. I too gave up on MH a long time ago but last night, well...okay, I was very drunk and MH looked like a good idea at the time.

It was comforting to see all the same tricks used to rubbish effect.

Not for the first time I told myself "never again" when I awoke... Very Happy

I used to watch MH years ago, only the weekly shows, didn't even know they did the live ones at the time. I found the show quite entertaining and as it was near their start, they still had some respect, many thinking it was research etc.

Then i watched a live one, it was the last time i watched the show, the live version really put me off, with their desperation to coerce the viewer into believing, and making things out to be a million times more interesting, with regards to proving the existence, etc.

I watched all five live shows this week for Halloween, just wanted to give it a try now that Derek isn't with the group anymore, totally disappointed, that so called 'cynic' should be ashamed of himself. I kept watching night after night, moreso for entertainment value, and cringeworthiness (is that a word?), after the first night and realising they hadn't learned anything since Derek.

I much prefer Ghost Hunt and Ghost Hunters. Two very decent shows.

Most Haunted got boring after Derek Acorah was found out to be a fake. [We all knew he was before it was confirmed, but still.]

And the live shows were boring anyway.

I watched for five minutes. When a viewer sent a text in saying that he foresaw the team having difficulty with a devious trickster I gave up.

Somebody should be recording the webcams with the amount of "activity" people are seeing Rolling Eyes

You know, were I the sysadmin in charge of those webcams, I would be very tempted indeed to install a few image processing systems to introduce a few ghostly shadows or mysterious orbs on them, served to only a few of the incoming connections, just for the laugh.

I wouldn't be telling the producer about the tricks, either... Twisted Evil

This has got to be the most idiotic show on TV. All I've seen is infrared camera shots of everybody's faces and hear them all screaming. Then, the fact they can get a "spirit" to throw items on command is very fake! I have yet to see any proof of anything here. Anybody could make this show like this. Very unprofessional!

I agree but it still gets thousands of viewers and their message board is heaving with those who think it's absolutely fantastic, completely serious and utterly factual.
Then again, the MB quickly throws out anyone who casts even the slightest doubt on the veracity of the show.

And as far as the twerps who text in during the live shows ... Rolling Eyes

I just love the 'psychic drawings' some people send in. Laughing

And Derek Acorah being possessed and saying 'Mary loves Dick, Mary loves Dick' was a highlight of the show.

The Stocksbridge Bypass is pretty creepy. At night. Especially the white line down the middle. Laughing
