Ghost Asylum on Destination America

Ghost Asylum on Destination American is the same group that starred in Ghostland Tennessee. That said, everyone may already know what to expect.

Ghost Asylum's first investigation is the Old War Memorial, in Scottsville, Kentucky. This investigation has the feel of every other show ever shot in an asylum. Lights off, same "assumption" based investigating.

Like the Ghostland Tennessee episode, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers rely almost solely on the sometimes unreliable K2 Meters. Although this time I believe they are taking the Mountain Monsters route and are going to create different "traps" every episode. No doubt they are trying to deem themselves the real Ghost Busters, and be the first to capture a spirit. The real question is, what do you do with a captured spirit, blow it up? I think it's already dead.

Can we finally get a show that does something different? It's either using a mask to create fear in clients, using a dog, traps, but all using the same techniques as everyone else. Why do teams continue to shoot all paranormal shows in pitch dark? Seeing shadows in the dark is unreliable due to your eyes seeing things that aren't there.

Well, at least, they're not blowing up anything this time.
