Default Most Haunted

Definetly NOT a British comedy ... but definetly British. I started watching this show about a year ago and I enjoy it immensely

Basically, there's a team of paranormal investigators that travel to different parts of both England and Ireland, investigating locations that are believed to be haunted. They take along cameras and special gadgets to track these ghosts and whatnot. The results are sometimes THRILLING (and some episodes are a let-down).

Anyone else ever watch this show? I know that in Canada, it's broadcast on the Women's Television Network Friday nights at 8:00pm. Sadly, this series is only available on DVD in the UK I think. Haven't seen it on Amazon.ca or .com yet.

It is actually quite funny sometimes! Derek being posessed can be a bit much!

But I love the paranormal and they have visited some very scary looking places. The show works as you are just hoping something scary will happen although it never really does.

Kudos to them though as I would be petrified going to these spooky places in the dark - my mind would be playing silly buggers all the time!

The Dick Turpin edition had to be seen to be believed.

Oh, and here's a "remix" of Derek's comments about the woman Mary...who loved Mr Turpin http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/...ylovesdick.MP3

Me too but would you spend the night in one?!! Most Haunted had an episode where they went to a place called Woodchester Mansion which is near me and it is soooooo creepy that place! It's in the middle of the woods! I went one Halloween night and it is just far too creepy!! Some of my friends wouldnt even get out of the car! There is ALWAYS this weird fog around and because its all in the sticks its dead quite. Giving me the shivers just thinking about it!!!

Ever done a Ouija board? I found it more interesting than spooky. You can't even buy the boards here - have to make one!

Yes I would love to spend a night in a haunted house. One house I lived in about 12 years ago was haunted. A local woman told me after all this weird stuff was going on that a man hung himself in the back room.
I used to be really big into Ouija boards.

Really not sure if I'd have the courage to spend the night in spooky old house on haunted hill! My imagination would go wild. And I'm sure somehow a cat would manage to jump out at me!

When I worked in a store years ago we had weird stuff happening, things would disappear and you'd find them in bizarre places and you'd hear people walking about and things jumped off the shelves.

I used to live opposite a grave yard which was cool.

"Most Haunted" is shown on The Travel Channel here in the US on Fridays. They've also just added "Derek Acorah's Haunted Towns" to the Friday night line up. Check it out.

I never missed Most Haunted, but now that Derek has left i can't be bothered with it, it's just not as good anymore.

I already told you the times, love. :wink:

9pm for Most Haunted and 10pm for Ghost Towns. Except for tomorrow, Ghost Towns airs at 8pm. There will be two episodes of Most Haunted at 9 and 10pm.

I just started watching this show two week ago and already I'm hooked.
