I really enjoyed this DVD because I hadn’t seen all the Ghost Hunters International season 1 episodes. The locations are great and some truly awesome footage is captured. Ghost Hunters International is one of my favorite shows because it appeals not only to my love of ghost investigations but also my love of travel – so it’s really like 2 shows in one.

The only thing I didn’t like about the DVD, was that it didn’t have many special features. For the fans that have already seen all the episodes, this DVD really doesn’t have too much new to offer.
