I See Dead People

I do not believe that people can see and talk to people who have died, that is one reason that I have never watched that television show where some guy walks around the audience to find a family member of a ghost who he is in contact with. I can’t even tell you the name of the show because I didn’t pay attention. Anyone know what I am talking about?

I watched it for the first time last night just so I could make fun of it. However, I have to admit that I was a little bit impressed when he claimed to be speaking with the grandmother and son of a family in the audience. Without getting any clues from the family (in fact, would hush the family if they started to give details), he told them that their teenage son died from a sharp blow to the chest (he died when a soccer ball hit him in the chest), mentioned something about Tweety Bird (his pet bird), and a police escort at his funeral (also true).

As I said, I don’t believe in ghosts. I watched very carefully to see if he would get clues from the family and make up stories from their answers. Nope. They didn’t say anything about a son, how he died, Tweety Bird, or police escort. Nothing.

So, how did he know this? Is this show fake? WTF?

Check out this thread. Lots of people had lots to say about him.

My husband actually made me start watching the show. I was impressed my the guy. It is a very well made show. It makes me want to attend the show if I was ever in the area. Only I don’t have many people that have died that I was close to.

I checked out the Amazing Randi’s link that explained how this guy does it (microphones, etc. before the show starts.) I have a special contempt for people who play off the tragedies of others for entertainment value.
