Purchased The Lowe Files on A&E and just finished watching episode 1, in the boys' reformatory. Huge thumbs up. There are two kinds of paranormal shows I like to watch: the dramatization type where they recreate events and talk to the originals, and certain paranormal reality shows. Whether the paranormal reality format works depends on the "researchers" involved; I like anything with Josh Gates for that reason, and Rob Lowe has that same mix of humor, skepticism, and enthusiasm that you see in Gates.

You can see him calling up his boys at college and convincing them that doing this series would be a good time -- and you can see them rolling their eyes. He must have been a fun dad for them growing up, always up for an adventure, and I get the feeling that's it's probably difficult to say no to him. There are a couple of moments where you can almost see them thinking, "why did I let Dad talk me into this?"

If you're looking for convincing evidence, episode 1 doesn't provide anything more than your typical Ghost Adventures or Kindred Spirits episode. But if you like this sort of shows for the entertainment factor, The Lowe Files is a winner.

If you have a smart phone there are some podcasts that deal with the paranormal. That's another option, and you can listen to them during your commute to work or puttering around the house.

Paranormal Witness is fake. Paranormal Survivor probably is too.

I always thought Ghostly Encounters with Lawrence Chau was really good and not overdone.

If anyone is looking for more of a scientific look at Bigfoot stuff, check out either 1) The Bigfoot Files, or 2) X Creatures

Great stuff.

I just started watching The Dead Files on Travel channel. I like the way they do it, with the medium exploring the home and what she feels, while the detective explores the history and clues independently and then they come together and see how well it meshes together at the end. Whether or not these things are real, it makes sense to do it this way to get some sort of "corroboration" of the families experiences. It gave me the willies!
