Stranded: Ho hum. Another ghost show.

Same ole same ole… Didn’t MTV do this with “Fear” long ago?

Syfy Will Premiere “Stranded,” Terrifying New Paranormal and Psychological Experiment – From the Producer of “Paranormal Activity” | TheFutonCritic.com.

If you thought Paranormal Activity was scary – get ready for Stranded. The new Syfy reality series, premiering Wednesday, February 27 at 9PM (ET/PT), uses the same stripped-down first-person method to document an unconventional – and terrifying – paranormal and psychological experiment in which participants are stranded at haunted location for a week and must record the entire experience themselves.

Each of the six hour-long episodes features the self-recorded footage of a diverse group of everyday paranormal enthusiasts. The footage from the subjects’ cameras is supplemented by strategically-placed security cameras at each location, creating a suspenseful, completely unscripted first-hand account of each group’s stay.

Ho hum. People freaking themselves out. Just like every other ghost show. Talk about a non-original idea.

Paranormal TV is utter crap. Ghost shows fail. But they keep trying. Want to see a list? Here is the most comprehensive list of paranormal shows from TV (portrayed as non-fiction). Mine.

    I didn’t see “That’s Incredible” on your tv show list!

    It’s a real shame that TV doesn’t want to pay writers and actors and churn out this redundant hogwash instead. Even the oldest, cheesiest Science Fiction ever produced would be more interesting than make believe ghosties and fictional science. All of this ghostie stuff just goes to prop up people’s flawed belief system in such things.

    I am awaiting for that moment when reality television becomes so fictionalized that we start living in our own fantasy worlds to escape it.

    It’s all very sad.

    Can you say confirmation bias? ” a diverse group of everyday paranormal enthusiasts.”

    I wonder if I can get on by claiming I am a paranormal enthusiast. Do you think they would screen a skeptic out? I think I will apply.

    Ya know- I’d like to see Red Dwarf do a variation of one of these shows. Have the characters absolutely lampoon the shows on a stick.
