Ghost Hunters Premeire

Who saw last nights episode besides me? If you didn't, you missed out on a great show. I can't think of a better way to start off the mini-season.

The Taps team investigated the Lisheen Ruins in Ireland. Built in the 1800s, the house was owned by an archaeologist who had a major fascination in mummies. Seriously, he had them displayed all throughout his home. Can you imagine walking into someones house and they have actual dead bodies hanging up like decorations?

The Irish believe you should never build your home in the path of where fairies dwell. If you do then your house would become haunted. Keep in mind, here in the States and possibly other places, when we think of fairies, we immediately picture a little nymph-like person with wings that are good in nature. In Ireland, they are seen as troll-like creatures that you don't want to mess with.

During last nights episode, they were able to capture some tremendous evidence. Dave and Dustin were in the basement and heard footsteps like someone was walking on a hardwood floor when there wasn't one. Jason and Grant were filming using the thermal camera and caught three unknown things following a couple of the TAPS team members in the woods. While exploring the same woods, they also filmed something stepping out from behind a tree with the thermal camera. Neither could be explained. The last piece of evidence they caught on tape was a face. That's right a face. It sort of looked like what the Irish consider a fairy. Overall, an excellent night. I bet Steve was disappointed he couldn't be there.

TAPS also investigated the Viaduct Tavern in London which was built over a 17th century prison, a place where people were locked up with 15 or 20 people for simple offenses such as owing money. There wasn't any windows or ventilation and weren't given food or water. All they had was a small hole in the ceiling where they would actually reach up and grab people to get their attention. They didn't collect much evidence there. Only a few EVPs, but it adds to the stories and experiences.

Next week, TAPS will be investigating the Hellfire Caves in England where a satanic secret society held their "meetings". Should be interesting.

In other Ghost Hunters news, the show has been picked up for a fourth season which will begin next year. They're also doing another live Halloween show. Care to guess where the location is this time? I'll give you two hints: it's one of the most active haunted locations in the US and TAPS has investigated it before. Give up? It's Waverly Hills.

Don't know about you, but I'm counting down the days until Halloween.
