The "role reversal" thing that appears to be their trademark is simultaneously hilarious and cringe-inducing.

Just saw the Black Dahlia ep and am officially fuuuhhhreaked the eff out. The team does this thing called "a ripple in time" where they re-enact the murder or whatever (IMO it seems horribly distasteful for the victims of these murders) and they captured some chilling EVPs. Oh and the house they investigate is a huge Frank Lloyd Wright home in Hollywood.
Ananayel, let me google around and see what I can find. I agree, Daniel looks familiar.

Edit: That said, the team is likable & I would keep watching it.

I wiki'd and looked at the imdb listing for Paranormal Challenge, but there's nothing. I'm just going with them appearing on that show, since I can't think of another reason they'd look familiar. The "ripple in time" is quite disrespectful, moreso when there are living family members than with something like ES Pen or Borden. And they do get freaked out and leave as soon as they start getting "activity," so I don't think they're very good at this. If they're going to flee, they should at least make it entertaining, like the iconic Brian Harnois runaway on GH, or like the GAC boys do. Aaron running down the hallway of Linda Vista hospital yelling "No! Nonononononononononononono!" will never not be funny.

On the topic of disrespectful techniques [ie: a Ripple in Time]... the whole Lizzie B chopping up her father on the couch while Daniel yelled "Why would you doooo this to meeeee!!!??? I gave you a home to live in!" was in total poor taste. Also Jordan dressed as the BD, tied to a table saying "go ahead and hurt me etc" was also super icky to watch.
Here is their FB page.

The brothers employeed "era cues" which I never knew what the heck they were saying until I finally saw it in print. I thought it was like "Hercules" Poirot's first name is pronounce similar to era cues. I was so confused.
And it might have had something to do with the Texas accents.
Anyway, their little reenactments are silly. This show is silly.
I will give it a try, though. Perhaps it will evolve.
