I try to keep an open mind on most things...but this stupid program is gotta be the Plan 9 of documentary TV shows.
For one...most of it is so obviously staged and phoney . Scooby Doo is more realistic. Two episodes in particular crack me up.
.An Owl Man....( the British cousin to the Moth Man,I reckon) is terrozing and eating people. Our heros even find supposed owl puke (kinda like an owl 'hairball) in the bell tower of some building. It was hard for me to concentrate as I was pretty benumbed by the total stupidity of it all. With the aid of some weird little girl who seems to be wise in all things Owlmanish, and the reality show token gay guy-in this case a psychic-they try to solve the mystery. Unlike Scooby and the Gang...they  fail miserably.
. My favorite episode has to be the white trash family who's double wide is haunted or possessed. Kinda a redneck version of the Amityville Horror. Only the horror in this one is the disgusting hygene of the trailer trash folks being haunted. I don't think a demon would possess that house. The filth would scare it off. I was waiting for the investigators to run out off the place in terror of being eaten alive by a Garbage Monster or Killer Cockroaches.
 I've only watched three episodes of this hokey malarkey...I don't think my heart or soul could stomach  anymore. Truly Bad TV.

Now you've piqued my interest, LOL.  You should check out The Scariest Places on Earth on the Sci-Fi Channel.  Some kids who are terrified of their own shadow go to supposedly haunted houses and spend the evening freaking out.  They usually mount cameras on themselves that are pointed at their faces, so all you ever see is green faces running around.  But they hear noises, and they see stuff - you just have to take their word for it.  They even have that woman who played Tangina in Poltergeist giving really scary voice-overs before each segment.  Oh man, it's terrifying.   TeddyR

The stupidest part of the Owl Man episode was that within the Owl Man hairball...they dig out a human jawbone! Also...the supposed Owl Man 'talks' threw the little girl...when asked what it is,it says it's "a demon."  Ahhh...yeh.  Lookingup

I seen this episode too...looking for the Mothman...

Did you see the episode with the house that was part of the Underground Railroad? They pulled up some floorboards and found an old 1860's era photo of a guy and his wife and some other crap and made the predictable leap to the assumption that the wife was haunting the place because the interracial couple that was living in the house had a baby without being married, and that didn't set well with her moral standards. Priceless!

 I also love the British one on the Travel Channel with the overacting Shakespearean psychic guy who writhes, cries, "enunciates to the back roooow", and scrunches up his face on cue when contacted by spirits. Pure entertainment.

Are you referring to the show "Most Haunted"?  I seriously can't stand that show.  I don't think any show like this should have the terms "did you hear that" or "what was that" mentioned more that once.

That's the one! I love watching it when I come across it, the key is to watch it like an episode of Gilligan's Island. Everyone's in a fake state of fear to build suspense, they're crowded together in a cramped corridor, tunnel, room, etc., when the boom operator or someone bumps something....and hilarity ensues. The host shrieks "What was that?", the psychic strikes an "Alas, poor Yorick" theatrical stance and announces in a resounding voice: "He is here with us!", and I roll on the floor laughing. This one must've been Plan 10!

Eyesore,

Have you seen the one where the guy "summons" a dead spirit and he starts screaming, "CONFRONTATION! IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT!".  That guy, like you said, is a bit too Shakespearian.  I love when he says, "I hear the name Frank" and the subtitle says, "There are no records of a 'Frank' in the building's history"

Sometimes I get captivated by characters even though the rest of the show is crap. I watch "The Office" simply because of Dwight. He's fascinating in the most bizarre way.

The psychic on "Most Haunted" is that show's Dwight!

The very reason I sit through a lot of Bela Lugosi's ou put for PRC in the 40's (I loved DEVIL BATthough) and junk like BELA LUGOSI MEETS A BROOKLYN GORRILLA.
 In fact,even though I think that PARANORMAL STATE is stupid beyond belief the first time I saw it....I watched two more episodes of it . The same reason,I guess we subject ourselves to BAD movies like SEXETTE and JAWS:the REVENGE.
