It's one thing to bring in the right people to move a trapped or lingering spirit on to the next realm and to have a family be rid of a negative entity or a spirit that has a nasty disposition for what ever reason. In fact we believe if you sincerely are going to help someone plagued in this way its incumbent upon you to do what you can to make sure the spirit is where they belong. However, to "trap" one in a box and then take it to a remote location and blow it up as seen in one episode..seems, well first of all extremely juvenile.
The credibility of the show seems to be somewhat shot because of this. Furthermore one could make the assertion that if any of these devices or contraptions are effective in ensnaring a spirit, why is there a need to keep building a different one per show? It would seem they'd get a patent on the device and market it to those who wish to banish spirits from their homes. Some criticisms have been directed at the fact that these are "southern" paranormal investigators going so far as to refer to them as "redneck" ghost busters, etc. TPB is southern based as well and as such we take issue with the branding of all those hailing from the south as being "redneck" but this show isn't really helping to drive that point home.
However, we realize this is just our viewpoint, perhaps you have one of your own, so we pose these questions to you:
Have you seen this show and if so, what did you think of it?
What do you feel about the legitimacy of "trapping spirits" is this doable, or is this paranormal phooey?
If spirits could be trapped, is it right to do so?
We hope you guys way in on this and let us know what you think.
