FACT OR FAKED PARANORMAL FILES Advance Review

After a successful debut this summer, the hit Syfy series FACT OR FAKED PARANORMAL FILES returns Thursday October 28th with 6 new episodes. If you are not already a fan of the show, Fact or Faked seeks to debunk paranormal videos that have gained popularity on the web. Just type in “ghost sightings” or “UFOs” into YouTube and you can just imagine what’s out there.

Each episode, the team discusses a handful of videos and then they chose the two best to go investigate in person. They use all the latest and best technologies for debunking as they try to recreate the videos scientifically. Sometimes they are unable to debunk the videos and the viewers are left wondering if it might have been something paranormal at work.

In the season premiere, the team investigates McPike Mansion in Alton, Illinois and a UFO sighting in Fremont, California. I thought it was an awesome idea to investigate a haunted mansion just days before Halloween. Several ghost investigation teams have captured a mysterious mist on camera that many believe is a ghostly spirit. In Fremont, a strange UFO was spotted close to both a NASA facility and an Airforce base. I thought both cases were extremely interesting and the methods the team used to try and recreate the video footage was really cool. One of them included the use of thousands of gnats, while another involved flying a kite.

I recommend this show to anybody else who is a lover of all things paranormal (like myself). I’d also recommend it to anybody who favors science and reasoning over the paranormal as this show has something to offer both sides. Don’t forget to check out Fact or Faked Paranormal Files this Thursday October 28th at 10:00 PM ET/PT on Syfy!
