Ghost Hunters!

I love the TV show "Ghost Hunters." It's a show on the Sci-Fi Channel that chronicles the professional lives of the TAPS team. "TAPS" stands for The Atlantic Paranormal Society. They investigate cases of supposed hauntings, most often in the New England area, and they are based in Connecticut. They're led by co-founders Grant and Jason, who work for Roto-Rooter as plumbers during the day. There's also a soldier (currently serving in Iraq), a former Air Force MP, an environmental engineer, a former priest and a police officer on their team, as well as other professionals. Smart, well-educated people who like to look for signs of ghosts in more than just their spare time.

Now, I hate typical horror movies, like "Scream" or "Nightmare on Elm Street," and psychological thrillers. Won't watch 'em, not even if you paid me. "Ghost Hunters" though... Man, I could scare myself with this stuff all day! Why? Because Jason and Grant and the rest of the TAPS team can usually explain away all the potentially scary stuff by the end of the hour. And what they can't explain away, they're generally so excited that it couldn't possibly be that scary to me. And the worst thing that can happen is that I know never to go to certain locations where they've actually found stuff that they can't explain away... such as the Saint Augustine Lighthouse, Eastern State Penitentiary, and the USS North Carolina. I *heart* TAPS.
