Watching the haunting of Barry Bostwick now. I like him and loved him on, "Spin City." That Russo medium chick, I don't recall seeing her or if I have I can't remember her, but she seems fishy to me. I don't even know why I feel she's fishy and cannot put my finger on it. Maybe her gifts are real, but empathy or sensitivity or something is really lacking in her or maybe it's her delivery. IDK.
I may be biased because I like Bostwick, but he came across to me as sort of sincere (as opposed to famewhore-esque.) He really knew a lot about the history of the property.
This brings me to a question. Bostwick says that he saw an apparition of a small boy who looked translucent. Why are some of the entities translucent and some look solid? For example, some folks have said that they have danced with people who they later realized had been dead for years etc. So they must sense some sort of solid-feeling body enough to dance with it, you know what I mean? That's probably not the best example, but you get the idea I'm trying to describe.
I hope I don't sound as if I'm pooing on mediums because I do think people have gifts, but how do we know that Russo didn't simply research the property to know that the one woman killed herself by carbon monoxide in what used to be a garage there? And clearly that other drowning suicide was in the newspapers which can be dug up and read from archives etc.
This show is not bad when I need something interesting to pass a few minutes, but it's lacking in some ways that makes me miss that show "Ghostly Encounters" which was really woo hoo scary by comparison.
These shows are supposed to have me on the edge of my seat. With Bostwick and Russo wandering all about doing not much, I felt like I needed a nap.
