Portions of some episodes portray Hawes and Wilson involved with their plumbing job or personal lives, but this varies by episode and is not always included.As the series progressed, however, the "behind-the-scenes" and "docu-soap" aspects have been reduced, and the fifth season has so far focused primarily on the investigations, with virtually none of the docu-soap material that characterized earlier episodes.

I really think that Britt owes a lot of people an apology (update he has apologized). His words reflect badly on the entire paranormal field.

He may have driven the last nail in the coffin of paranormal tv.

During investigations, the TAPS ghost hunters team use various equipment, including digital thermometers, EMF meters, thermographic and night vision cameras, handheld and static digital video cameras, digital audio recorders, and laptop computers.

The team has also experimented, in at least one episode, with a geiger counter during their investigation to see if it would register any anomalous readings.

The second is a new EMF detector that makes a buzzing sound when in the presence of an electromagnetic field, and the stronger the field, the louder it buzzes.

In the episode, the geophones were recorded on video flashing to the vibrations of what sound like footsteps across a floor even though no one was supposedly in the room.

Then again, ending paranormal tv may not be such a bad thing!

One thing Britt managed to do for all of us, he managed to give us a perfect example of how to destroy a career.

I have learned that Britt has been fired for those comments. I guess the burning question would be what will happen to GHI?
