Ghost Lab – Episode 4 – Chicago/Texas

I’m not sure if I’m a fan of this show or not. While I like the locations they visit and the stories behind them, their methods and conclusions seem highly suspect and dodgy to me.

In their latest exploits the Ghost Lab team is in Chicago at a Tattoo parlor and then in Texas at a brothel. Again, their captured evidence is extremely light. To me, personal experiences don’t mean anything since they can’t be documented. You can say something is cold or you saw a shadow or you felt something watching you, but that isn’t evidence. That’s a feeling, an impression, perhaps even the mind playing tricks. And static on a recording isn’t evidence either. Other people may hear names or responses to questions, but all I ever hear is static.

As for their experiments, it seems like it’s an excuse to goof around. The Brothers claim they’re raising the energy in the place so they can promote more spirit activity. I can’t say it actually accomplishes anything. Really, getting a tattoo brings out the spirits? Scaring people in the basement of a Halloween haunted house makes ghosts appear? Where’s the correlation? By that token, the more people you put in a room the more spirit activity there should be. They don’t actually have to do anything, their energy is enough. Not quite buying into that one.

When in Texas investigating the brothel they look into a tub that makes people feel they’re being watched. The immediately see that there is a high EMF surrounding it. Sidestepping the notion of looking for the source they press on and have someone get in the tub. Well, yeah, they should feel weird with all that going on around them. That’s not paranormal, that’s being affected by your environment.

In both cases the Brothers give it their paranormal stamp of approval and say proudly their experiments are a success. Excuse me? They barely found anything at either site and they feel confident they found conclusive evidence of the paranormal. I can’t agree with you there. From where I stand you haven’t found anything.

Here’s a thought, maybe they could investigate for the entire night and stopping running back to the trailer every couple of minutes to see if they found something.
