Most Haunted Load of Rubbish
I'd imagine some of you have been watching Most Haunted Live, coming from the now abandoned Denbigh Mental Hospital, located in the town in which I work.
I've been watching bits and peices now for the last 3 or 4 nights, and you know what? It's an absolute mockery -- who the hell do these people think we are?
Don't get me wrong, I beleive that strange things do go on, I beleive in the paranormal, but, what I don't beleive, is that a "ghost" has a mouth and a voicebox to make noises and whistle at Yvette on demand -- when she's stood there throwing things around the place and then asking for them to be thrown back... these are supposed spirits not your next door neighbour's hyperactive pet dog.
The one thing that completely put the icing on the cake last night was the "Voodoo Doll" spectacle, I'm sure those of you who saw it picked up on this.
They had a voodoo doll of one of the other members of the team, sent him off to a different room, at which time he was "unaware" they had this doll, and started poking pins into it - fair enough, BUT, at the time, they had the two camera's running on the screen at the same time, and what happened?
The other presenter started holding his leg "in pain".... (might I mention the WRONG leg too??), a good 10 or so seconds BEFORE they started poking this "doll" with a pin. His movements during being "poked" were acted and unconvincing.
Absolute Farce. Once the whole thing was over and the team regrouped he claimed he was still in great pain, however grimaced only a couple of times later on while the camera was on his face.
Another thing I've noticed, is that the cameras never capture anything, they very rarely hear anything, there will sometimes be 20 minute segments of the show where the team will be "hearing" things that we do not, and we're forced to sit and watch Yvette and her team, with her ineffably irritating voice asking everyone "Did you see that? Did you hear that?".
It's going to bring people to this town who will be here to make a mockery of it, well done Most Haunted, thats one sure fire way to bring the completely wrong kind of people to the town.
Luckily I live about 8 miles away - They once did a Most Haunted in my home town too, also a waste of my time.
Anybody else concurr? </rant>
Other than that, Morning all! :)
