REVIEW: Most Haunted - Kelham Hall Pt 1 - Airdate 22/02/2019

Another Friday and another episode of Most Haunted.

Having just finished my analysis of a Pet Psychic, I thought I would keep the computer on and get my review of Most Haunted done and dusted. Damn my shoulders and neck are aching. Too much writing for one day me thinks. Apologies if this article is not up to my usual incredibly high standards.

Anyway did someone just say BLURB?

"Yvette Fielding and her team visit Kelham Hall in Nottinghamshire. From the start, activity is prevalent in this historical building, and Glen is faced with something unexplained."

Well I changed my ad blocker in the hope it would stop UKTV from forcing ads down my throat but unfortunately it has not worked.

If anyone knows a Chrome Extension that 100% blocks the ads on UKTV please let me know on my twitter account @TheBadPsych

The late Kim Jong-il of North Korea just contacted me through a fake psychic, he told me to tell Yvette he wants his "look" back.

I do wonder sometimes if Yvette has any mirrors in her house?

It looks like this episode was filmed in the middle of summer, so expect plenty of shots of Fred in an unbuttoned shirt.

I have never visited Kelham Hall, but it does look like an incredible building.

Thought I would check Trip Advisor with regards to Kelham Hall, and blimey there are so many unhappy people there. No wonder they are selling their soul to Most Haunted, they need any publicity they can get. Plus they want the "ghost hunter money"

As Yvette walks into the building she starts talking about the Gulags she wants to set up, since now she is an East Asian dictator she needs to get the ball running on her post Most Haunted career.

Oh come on Yvette, you are talking the piss now! You are even doing "evil hand" gestures.

Yvette has finished her intro into the benefits of Communism, and Glen arrives. With a smirk on his face of course.

(Don't forget to play your Most Haunted Drinking Game Card)

Resident Skeptic Glen is already recounting a door slamming shut. Of course OFF CAMERA.

Worth noting this is another cost saving two parter, did you know the entire series of 10 episodes was filmed on just 5 nights.

Glen has already pulled out his number 1 "on the pull" pose.
Notice the jumper he is wearing, no t-shirt underneath, just his naked flesh against the material.

Glen has revealed that Kelham Hall has no record of any murders or killings. So that should mean no ghosts right?

One finger in his pocket and BOOM, the pose has worked, and Yvette tightly grips Glen forearm, his girth throbbing in her hand.

The walk round is complete and they have wasted 10 minutes.

Did I not call it? Damn I am on form today! Fred in an unbuttoned shirt!

No idea why they have night vision on, since it is clearly lit up where they are, and even Karl admits there is lighting still on which is causing shadows.

And before you know it they are hearing banging, taps etc.

Oh god I hope it is not another episode full of pointless taps and knocks.

I may have to further entertain myself if this is the case.

Yvette decides to start walking towards the cameras and asking the ghosts to copy her. Of course the ghosts refuse as that would be way too easy.

Suddenly Yvette has sat down as she feels sick, then suddenly a book is thrown and lands right near Glen, do I need to say that this happened OFF CAMERA?

I wonder who possibly could have thrown the book. It wasn't Glen since his arms are folded. But there is no one else near, definitely a ghost. It has to be, what other possible explanation could there be?

Karl then does a pathetic attempt to investigate, by examining a nearby book case.

Anyone who thinks this was paranormal is an idiot.

Because ghosts understand smartphones, they are now communicating to Yvette by tapping when she has her finger over the right letter. Didn't they do this nonsense a few episodes ago and exposed themselves as frauds as they got the information from an incorrect newspaper clipping?

They get the name Johnathan Collebrough, which Fred instantly confirms is correct.
Here we go again.

They get 1771 as well.
Then Fred pulls out his research.

Which amazingly matches what the ghost told Yvette. Although the Johnathan, should be John or Johno by the looks of it. Do you think this is proof? I don't. I just see it as Yvette knowing before hand what she had to type out.

Again easy way to prove this was real would be to ask the ghost to tap directly on the screen!

Karl asks Fred if he has shown that info to anyone, and he denies it, because to admit it would be ridiculous.

Yvette sees a shadow and quickly starts running towards it. Remember earlier Karl admitted there was a lot of lights on that were creating shadows.

Fred starts speaking in Latin, nothing happens. But if you are playing the drinking game, you know what you need to do.

Yvette decides that everyone needs to split up.

Remember they only have two cameras with them, yet the groups split into 4 or 5. So clearly things are not being filmed at the same time as they would have you believe.

Yvette, Karl and Fred are in what looks like a cellar area, a lot of pipes and machinery around, so instantly any sounds can be put down to them. Hilariously it sounds like Karl farts, but he blames it on a door closing. Not sure you can class this as a "stench" if you are playing the drinking game. But give the fart chance to waft and we might get lucky.

For some reason chubby bloke whose name I never remember, is talking like an estate agent and describing the rooms and walking around. No idea who thought this would make interesting viewing. I doubt any viewer of Most Haunted could afford such a location.

He finally finishes and then remembers he is supposed to be filming a paranormal investigation and starts calling out to the ghosties.

We cut to Stuart and he is not messing about, talking directly to the ghosties.

Now with Glen and he is in a small room all on his own, he has his laptop open and ready. He closes the door, unzips his trousers, whips his member out and starts furiously knocking one out, and by that I mean he presses play on the record button.

Back with Fred, Yvette and Karl and perfectly on cue there is a bang OFF CAMERA, and then another bang, OFF CAMERA.

Fred is talking Latin again, so drink up people!

Fred claims he can see a mist. By the time the camera turns around and they investigate, it has gone.

Back and forth Karl goes, trying to catch the ghost on camera, but alas the ghost is crafty and stays hidden.

More Latin from Fred. And another shot to be taken.

I hope those buttons are sewed on well on Fred's shirt, the last thing we need is a button flying off and hitting Yvette in her eye.

Nearly 30 minutes into the episode with 15 minutes left. To be fair the episode has chugged along at a decent rate for once. Perhaps more due to me entertaining myself as opposed to anything happening on screen. Plus I am playing the drinking game and feeling quite tipsy.

No coins this week, I am guessing Karl left them at home.

With this bloke again, and suddenly there is a noise and something has been thrown OFF CAMERA. Now I don't think he threw it as his reaction really seemed quite real, as opposed to the usual acting from Karl. Now supposedly he is alone, but as I pointed out earlier, they only have 2 cameras, and are filming in blocks as opposed to all at once, so this could literally be Karl or Stuart down a corridor throwing something.

A big steel pipe was what was thrown.

He asks the ghosts to throw something else or move something. Nothing happens.

Suddenly another bang and another pipe has been chucked OFF CAMERA.

After the bang there is a few blurry moments on the camera as he moves it quickly about, if there is an edit, here is the most obvious bit, I am guessing the raw footage showed Karl or Stuart sneaking about, so it was simply cut and edited. Also the audio is clearly risen at the point of both bangs to make it seem louder to the viewer.

Looks like Stuart has been playing the Most Haunted drinking game too.

As Stuart investigates, there is a bang, and something has been thrown OFF CAMERA. But we dont see what. So could have just been Stuart kicking something. Suddenly a big noise. And a table has been flipped OFF CAMERA.

Ok I didn't see any obvious camera edits, so I decided to re-watch all the footage of this segment, from when they cut to Stuart, and at no point did they show the table standing.

So I am assuming the table was put on it's side before Stuart started filming, and then all he needed to do was act as if he heard the noise (which was added in post production) and react to it.

That would be the easiest way to do it.

Before you know it there is another bang and something has happened OFF CAMERA. And with that Stuart's segment ends, and we cross to Glen who is now clearing up his mess with wet wipes.

With Yvette and she is humming and making noises. That counts on the drinking game as someone humming a tune.

It still gets to me every time Karl says "hello" to the ghosts, it is just how you would answer a phone, and there is no one on the other end.

Stuart is acting all breathless and scared, as he further examines the area and then decides to leave the area and pleads with the ghosts to leave him alone as he leaves.

Karl farts again but he claims its the door again. No stench though.

Yvette is banging on a wall, nothing happens.

To really push the lie, Karl claims that the great thing is, everyone is accounted for. And that they are all in dead end places. The inference being that it must be the ghosts making the noises and chucking things and not any of the crew members. I think I have already proven this to be a lie.

Fred starts to speak in Latin, there is a noise, Yvette screams, and then the episode pauses with this as the cliffhanger. How lucky it happened right at the point where the episode would end. Almost as if it was fixed.

Guess we will have to wait until next week to find out what the noise is. (Spoiler. It was a bit of machinery, a cooling system or something that came on. Nothing ghostly)

We get a quick preview of next weeks episode and roll the credits.

The episode did seem to roll along at a decent pace, but still nothing very impressive happened. I will give the show a 2/10 though, mainly due to Yvette Fielding deciding to become a Communist dictator.

Analysis - Amanda De Warren - Pet Psychic

We have been talking about Amanda De Warren for a while over on the BadPsychics Forum and when one of our forum members transcribed a few pet readings by Amanda De Warren from an Aussie radio show, I couldn't help but take a look, and I decided to go "old school" and analyse it for everyone, so you can see exactly how she does what she claims.

Firstly you can listen to the show at this link, no idea how long it will stay up, but always good to listen to the recording, but perhaps listen to it after you have read my analysis so that you have more of an idea what to look out for.


As with any psychic, the methods are often the same regardless of if you are giving a reading to a human, or an animal. The truth is it is always the human who is being read, because no one can read the mind of an animal.

So let's start off with the readings. I will interject my comment in BOLD lettering.

The show was published on February 20, 2019.

Transcript by Forum member john66

The show starts off with some waffle by the host and an introduction to Amanda.

First interview (Host)

Ash: Amanda, I'm gonna take the opportunity to talk to you about my little lady. Is that alright?

Amanda: Yes, with attitude. Yes.

To start off I believe the Ash talking is one of the co-hosts, Ash London. And you would also assume that any time a psychic goes on a show, they would most likely do a bit of research on who is interviewing them. And a quick check of Ash London's social media and there are plenty of photos of her dog, and conversations about the dog, so incredibly easy to do some prior research if needed. But for the sake of this article, I will assume that Amanda did no prior research and truly came in "cold". However unlikely that may be, we have to give the benefit of the doubt.

Ash: Her name is Honey and she is a rescue greyhound and she's being moving around a lot lately because we've been..

Amanda: [interrupts] I was gonna say to you it feels like she's been shifting a lot, from house to house to house and it feels like, but you're just about stopping where you are at this point, aren't you?

Straight away Amanda realises that she is being given information and she needs to "claim it" for herself as the psychic, so that it can be repeated back. And this is exactly what happens here. Ash tells the Amanda about the dog, Amanda repeats the info back with a bit more info, and makes it sound like she already knew. You will notice if you listen to the readings how often Amanda interrupts people. It is a trick used by psychics to convince the client that they know the info. After the reading the client will convince themselves that the psychic knew stuff, when the truth is they gave away all of the information.

Ash: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, we're settling in

Amanda: I feel like, um, and she's very cheerful, she's a very cheerful dog, it's like all she wants to do is make you happy and, um, she's very, has she got a little bit of a problem with one of her legs as well?

Ash revealed that the dog was a rescue dog, a rescue dog by its very nature has been rescued from a situation that was not pleasant, so a dog being grateful for being treated better than it was previously is really quite likely. Now notice how Amanda asks a QUESTION here, remember a real psychic would never need to ask a question. She asks Ash if the dog has a problem with one of her legs.

Ash: She does. She has arthritis in her back leg.

Amanda: Yeah, because I felt pain in her back legs, because she's showing me a lot of pain in her back legs and she's saying, "I'm struggling to walk at times."

So Ash confirms there is a problem with the back leg, and gives away more information that the dog has arthritis. So straight away Amanda has more info given to her that she can now repeat.

The original question was if the dog had "a little bit of a problem with one of her legs". From a little bit of a problem, Amanda now jumps to "a lot of pain" and "struggling to walk"

All of this info is gained from Ash using the word arthritis.

Many rescue dogs have issues with limbs which is often why they are given up in the first place, but still Amanda asked about a leg problem, how could she possibly come to the decision to ask that? Well go back a bit and look at what Ash originally said "she is a rescue greyhound".

This is very important. Given that Amanda is making a living from this job, she will know about animals, and rarely if ever do you see 100% healthy greyhounds given up. They are only ever given up if they are unable to run, since that is what they are bred for. And what is the main reason a greyhound cant run? Yep it will be a leg issue. And that is exactly what Amanda ASKED Ash, all of the information that Amanda has said so far comes from what Ash has told her. Using common sense and educated guesswork, as well as just repeating back what she has been told by the client.

Ash: [crying]

Grant: Ash, are you ok, darl?

Amanda: Um, it comes and goes. She's not really that old though, is she? What is she, about 4 or 5?

Already Ash is crying. Literally the psychic has told her nothing, but Ash has been hooked, and Amanda has won. 

Grant: Ash is tearing up.

Ash: No, she's a bit older. She's 7.

The first true attempt at something specific in the reading, that being the age of the dog, and Amanda is wrong.

The average age a greyhound will live to is roughly 10.
And the average age a Greyhound stops racing is 3-5.

Source: http://www.gbgb.org.uk/FAQs.aspx

So Amanda makes takes a chance and guesses 4 or 5, which would be the most likely age. But she is off by a few years. The equivalent of being wrong by about 20-30% of the dogs age.

Amanda: Sorry, I make everyone cry, it's my job.

Ash: Cause I worry about her back legs, because we have stairs and when she goes up the stairs I worry.

Amanda: Of course, yeah, yeah, and that's what she's talking about. She's talking about her back legs and she's saying, "it's ok, I'm having good days and bad days, but I know you love me."

Again Amanda is just taking what Ash tells her and repeats it back but with more detail and as if she is getting it from the dog.

Grant: Aw, that's..

Amanda: But I know she struggles with the back legs. Look, she's fine, um, I do a lot of healing on animals, but she really needed her mum to know about the back legs, because that's the first thing I picked up on. It's "I love you so much, mummy, I know you're doing everything." Are you doing some, like, alternative medicine on her at the moment, like healing or..?

Ash: I give her massages, and I look up on the Internet how to do dog massages.

Amanda: Yes, I was just about to say healing.. yes, because she's talking about healing thing you're doing, the alternative, it feels like massage or something. She said, "Aw, that's just,
that's awesome. I love it."

Amanda asks if Ash is doing any alternative medicine or healing on the dog.
Well the dog has arthritis, and Ash is blubbing here, so clearly Ash is a huge believer in this kind of nonsense, plus massage and such things are pretty obvious.

Ash tells Amanda she does massage the dog, and then Amanda repeats it back as if it is knowledge she has gotten from the dog.

Ash: Aw, I hope she likes it, cause greyhounds don't give a lot of emotion.

Amanda: She does.

Ash: So when I do it, she just stares at me, like does she even like the dog massage that I'm learning how to do off YouTube?

Amanda: You're actually, you're actually doing really well with that.

Ash: Thank you, Amanda.

So Ash pretty much admits here that the dog doesn't care for the massages, but Amanda purely to make Ash feel better, says that the dog likes it. Basically telling the client what they want to hear, to make them feel better about themselves and psychologically it makes you feel closer to the psychic.

Amanda: I'm gonna send her some healing as well, so, but she's absolutely gorgeous. Please go and give her a big hug.

Ash: I will, thank you.

Amanda: She has, she has not, she's not one of these dogs that wants to race.

Ash: No, at all, she's a lazy lady.

Well since she is a good 3-4 years past the retirement age for a greyhound, and has a bad leg, and was a rescue, it would be highly unlikely that she would want to race.

Amanda: She had no intention, it's like you say, what, what do you want to me to do.. [not sure about next words]

So that is the first reading done, and as with all psychics there is a clear pattern emerging. 
Repeat back to the client what they have already told you, but with more detail to make it sound like you know.

Make educated guesses, and use common knowledge and pass it off as if divined psychically.

Lets see if this tactic carries on to the next reading, I suspect it will.

Second interview (Cara)

Amanda: How can I help you and your baby?

Cara: So I have two, but I'm more curious about one. So his name's Nuts (?) and he's very handsome, ah, but we have a bit of a behavioural issue where, um, he cries a lot..

Amanda: Does he get a little bit aggressive? I feel like he has an underlying fear. I'm sorry to interrupt you, but I felt like there is an underlying fear and it seems to come out as like, he's not showing aggression, but I feel like, yes, because there's a fearfulness around him as well. Has he missed another dog? I feel like there's another dog that's passed over, is that right?

Cara: No, he's a cat, but, um.. he

How crap of a pet psychic do you have to be to not even know what kind of animal you are communicating with. This is hilariously bad. To be fair, from the way Cara was speaking I did assume it was a dog too, the name, the crying, do make you picture a dog. Let's see how Amanda talks her way out of this.

Amanda: Aw, a cat, I'm sorry, who's the dog that keeps coming through? A dog passed over?

Cara: I've never had a dog, but he may have had a dog previously. He's a rescue.

Realising she messed up huge, Amanda tries to go down the whole ghost dog routine

Amanda: Ok, that's what he's trying to show me.

Cara: I think he was surrendered.

So to understand, a ghost dog, is connecting to Amanda, to talk about the cat who the woman is calling in about. Well its a bit of a reach, but Amanda has managed to turn an incredible balls up into something she can use in the reading.

Amanda: Yes, yes, because I feel a dog and a dog keeps coming through and connecting to this cat. I'm sorry, I'm trying to be really quick here. Um, but the cat, has he got an.. he's very fearful at times, but the dog was what he was connected to for a long time and that's what he's missing. He's telling me about the dog. He's been.. he's gone to several different homes has he, so far, the cat?

Cara: Yep, yep.

Cats are notorious travellers, so to suggest that a cat has gone to several different homes, is very different to saying a dog has, with a dog you would assume that meant different owners, with a cat however the meaning is that the cat has gone to different houses.

Amanda: Yes, because he said, "many, many homes but I.."

Cara: He's been with me for a few years.

Amanda: Yes, but he had, um, anoth- a dog that he was very connected to that that dog is passed over and it's trying to connect to him. So he wakes up in the middle of the night and he's all noisy and, uh, kind of cries out does he?

Cara: Yes, people think I have a crying baby, but it's not a baby, it's my cat.

Amanda is desperate to connect this cat's behavioural issues to this imaginary dead dog. After making such a big mistake early on, Amanda is cleverly using it to explain the reason why the cat is crying so much.

Amanda: Yeah, that's what he's showing me, the crying out, the crying out, it's the dog that's passed over that comes to him and he senses that dog at night and they were very, very close.

Host: I'm sorry to cut in, I know it's very technical, I know there's a lot going on, but we've got so many calls coming through, it's so busy.

Amanda: I'm so sorry, but anyway, the dog is there.

Host: Do we have a little tip for Cara that will.. so a little tip for Cara, something she can do perhaps, Amanda?

Amanda: I tried to remove the dog, so that Cara and this has happened many times, so your cat can actually get some peace.

Host: Great stuff. Alright, look, as I say so many trying to get through.

And perhaps realising how badly this reading is going, and how Amanda is not really saying anything of worth, the other host quickly moves her on to the next person on the phone. And poor Nuts the cat is still left without an answer.

Third interview (Natalie)

Natalie: Hello!

Amanda: Natalie!

Natalia: Hi, how are you going?

Amanda: Good, darling. How can I help you?

Natalie: I'm ringing up about my beloved dog Brutus, sorry I'm gonna cry. Um, yeah, he passed away about 18 months ago. We had him for almost 14 years..

So straight away, once again the client is giving all the information away. The dog is dead not alive, his age, how long ago it happened. Even the name of dog.

Amanda: You had to put him, you had to put him to sleep, did you?

Natalie: No, we didn't have to put him to sleep. He actually passed away in my son's arms.

Straight away a major fail by Amanda. It is the smart guess to make, an old dog dies, most likely had various illnesses, take it to the vet, vet puts the dog out of its misery, but NO, Amanda gets it 100% wrong. The dog died in her sons arms.

Amanda: I feel like it was quick. It felt really, really quick with him. Yes, because I feel you weren't expecting this, this was very sudden and you weren't expecting this.

Natalie: Yep. Not at all.

Well the fact the woman is clearly still grieving for a dog that died 18 months ago, would suggest that it was sudden, and that it wasn't expected, regardless of the age of the dog.

Amanda: And he said he went downhill really fast. He said he didn't suffer.

Natalie: Ok.

Amanda: I just felt like his whole body shut down. Was it like an impact or something or come to something like an umph gone?

Natalie: He literally just, he just coughed and he was gone.

So with the info she has got, Amanda now takes a guess that since it was unexpected, and since the dog died in the ladies son's arms, it was most likely run over, this is a common sense guess. But wow again she is 100% wrong.

Amanda: Yes. That's what he's showing to me. I'm feeling, uh, gone. That's what he's showing me.

Natalie: Yeah, that was exactly it.

No, that is not exactly it. This is the opposite of exactly it. Amanda guessed he was run over, but the woman at no point confirms that, she literally says that he just coughed and then died. I wonder if he was a bulldog of some sort, the name Brutus makes me think of such a dog, and they are famous for having breathing issues.

Amanda: And he was perfectly ok beforehand.

Natalie: Yeah.

Amanda: Yeah, he was, he wasn't that old though, but he said to tell you I didn't pass, they think, uh, I didn't suffer. Did they think it was some kind of stroke or a heart attack or something?

Natalie: Yes, yeah.

So clearly forgetting that the woman said she had the dog 14 years, Amanda now says the dog wasn't that old. The dog WAS old. Like really old. Most dogs do not get anywhere near to 14 years of age.

Amanda: Yes, because I'm picking up on stroke or heart attack.

Now, since the dog was NOT run over like Amanda guessed, she now guesses either heart attack or stroke, she ASKS the woman this QUESTION first, and then repeats back to her after getting the answer.

Natalie: Ok.

Amanda: It was that quick, he didn't suffer.

Natalie: Yeah.

Amanda: You know what, darling? They go on loving us, even 70, 80 years down the track. I've done communications with people who have lost animals 70 years ago and they still come through. They love us unconditionally, even though they are physically not here. He did not suffer.

Another terrible reading. Bad guesswork. Nothing even remotely psychic here.

Fourth interview (Fiona)

Fiona: Yeah, hi, I've had my rescue dog Harrison for 10 years, we're best buds, as close that you can be. I've just brought a second dog into the home and he's just not quite himself. I
wanna make sure he's ok with that, he's alright with me bringing a second, young pup into the home.

Amanda: He, uh, seems to be ok, but I think the pup's energy is not on the same level of his. These two dogs seem to be completely different, conflicting personalities, uh..

Fiona: [interrupts]

Amanda: Sorry?

Fiona: I said, "they certainly are."

So an old dog, who is older than 10, as it was a rescue dog and she has had him for 10 years, so he could be 10, 11, 12 etc. Is it any surprise that an older dog may not be too pleased with a young puppy coming in, with all its energy and excitement, and the old dog just wants to sleep and chill. All pretty obvious and anyone could guess this.

Amanda: Yes, because I'm feeling like your dog is saying, "well, you know, um, you brought this dog into the house, but he's not on the same level as me, and we don't really connect that well.."

Ash: So what can she do?

Amanda: Well, all I can do is help the, help both dogs get to the same level and that's what I actually do, because the, the older dog, it's not so much about the jealousy thing, it's just about the whole, uh, energy level of the new dog. There's a lot of negativity around the old dog and the, uh, rescue dog before is trying to fathom out what this dog is about.

Ash: Great. It's like housemates, when you find a housemate off the Internet and you move in and you don't like each other:

Amanda: Exactly.

That's it. An old dog is a bit pissed off with a new young dog.
I don't know what to say here.

Fifth interview (Janet)

Janet: Hi guys, um, yeah, we bought the horse at Christmas time for my daughter, um, who's been having riding lessons for about 2 years now, um, but she's thrown my daughter off a couple of times.

Amanda: I was gonna say, it just kind of felt, I went mmm when you were talking and I was thinking, "ok, this horse has, um, it's like I'm the boss, always has been the boss, you're not the boss of me, I'll tell you when I've had enough." Um, unfortunately, this horse goes from really, really sweet and then all of a sudden, "I'm gonna throw you off" within like, uh, seconds, um and your daughter's energy is not strong enough for this horse, and I don't mean that as an insulting way, but this horse I don't think is really gonna change much at all. It has a lot of emotional problems and social problems with humans, and you find that a lot with animals. I think retraining this horse would do a lot of good.

Again the common tactic we have seen throughout these readings, the client says something, and Amanda repeats back but just adds more detail to make it sound like she is getting the info psychically.

Ash: Is that helpful, Janet?

Janet: Yeah, it is actually, because we have sort of been checking things off, so you know we had her feet done, we were having a dentist come out to see her..

Amanda: It's not um, it's not a physical problem. It's an emotional problem with her, and it's almost like bipolar. Like she's good one minute and then the minute it's like, bang, gone.

And with that the reading ends.
Again with this reading, the client tells the psychic, the psychic repeats back.

Throughout these readings I hope you see the same tricks, psychics do this all the time regardless if it is a human or an animal being read.

Really basic stuff from Amanda De Warren.

She is not psychic, she is not communicating with the dead.

REVIEW: Most Haunted - Hodroyd Hall Pt 3 - Airdate 15/02/2019

Welcome back to the UK's most popular and most read weekly review of Most Haunted.

I have been asked to publish the following from our resident nasty evil skeptic, Mr Juan Donnis.

"Last week Most Haunted claimed that they were speaking to a ghost called "Henry Harries", we even pointed out that he died 7+ miles away and not just outside like Fred had claimed. But that is not all, since last week someone else did more research and found out that Most Haunted had simply read the newspaper cutting (the same one we published) and then repeated the same mistakes the cutting had made, on the show. Proving 100% that Yvette Fielding had cheated. Since both her fake communication with the ghost, as well as Fred's prior research all matched the cutting, but didn't match the truth. The truth is, there was no Henry Harries at all!

You can read the full investigation at

Of course this is not the first time they have been caught cheating, and the "Haunties" will surely find a way to explain this latest lie."

Anyway with that out of the way.....

I am your host Jon Donnis, a world renowned believer in all things woo, so get yourself comfortable, and enjoy this weeks review.

"As Yvette leads her team in the last episode of the Hodroyd trilogy, they search to uncover the truth behind one of its most endearing mysteries."

Before we start, feel free to print off the Most Haunted Drinking game I have prepared.
My advice would be to start with shots of whiskey, only fair we drink spirits when talking to spirits!

We start off with the highlights of the previous episode, showing all the 100% legitimate ghost activity that happened. Including the ghosts throwing coins from where Karl and Fred were stood.

And before you know it we are back, and we are back with Karl and him hearing footsteps. Although the audio would suggest the footsteps were added in post production, clearly this difference in sound quality can be explained by the fact that ghosts do not have physical feet.

Here is Glen in mid-investigation, many of you wont know this, but by filming his neck-beard instead of the ghosts, he is actually proving that ghosts exist. I have not quite worked out how that is, but trust me, every real investigator knows that you have to film yourself instead of the area you are investigating. But this only counts if you are investigating ghosts, imagine if a crime scene investigator was examining a crime scene and just took photos or videos of themselves, how ridiculous and unprofessional that would be! Luckily Glen is a seasoned professional so knows exactly what he is doing.

It seems that while Glen was filming himself, a door has opened all by itself.

Glen then thanks the ghosts for opening the door, which goes against the claims that he is the resident skeptic. Could it be that he is just playing a part and not really a skeptic?

Yvette starts singing Ring of Roses, so take a drink, as that would clearly come under "When someone whistles or hums a song"

Rick is filming himself, so much like Glen he is following the ghost hunters rule book.

Yvette starts tapping the bath, but the ghost isn't ready yet so doesn't reply.

Karl is getting scared in the attic, so has decided to leave the area.

Annoyingly UKTV are now forcing ads when watching the show online. That was one of the few pleasures in watching online that you could watch the show in 45 minutes instead of 1 hour.

Back on and Yvette is still waiting for something to happen. As nothing does, Yvette meets up with some others and puts her hand on a table.

Karl has gone and got Rick to keep him company in the attic.

Have you ever noticed how Karl always says hello to the ghosts in such a way that he would expect a response, further proof it is all real.

Yvette has seen a real life orb moving across the wall. OFF CAMERA.

Ok I cant keep this pretence up any longer. Yvette saw a god damn insect, not an orb. Just because you see something move in the corner of your eye, or something move in the distance when it is dark, does not make it an orb. Like seriously guys, how unbelievably stupid do you have to be to think every little thing is an orb. An orb by the way is what spiritualists like to say are the first stages of a spirit manifestation. Well guess what, no "orb" has ever manifestated into a spirit, or anything. And now because 100% of orbs found on photographs/videos were debunked OVER A DECADE AGO, we have to put up with idiots saying that they saw an orb with their own eyes. OFF FREAKING CAMERA! Give me a break. Apollonius Christ some people are dumb.

Ok where was I.

Oh yeah, the guy in the middle is trying to lift a table with his penis.

This episode is 16 minutes old already. And I am already half a bottle down on the cough medicine, and I don't even have a cough! (7%)

I was wondering why we had not had any coins thrown yet in this episode, and then suddenly Karl empties his pockets of coins.

Watch as Karl waits for Rick to look the opposite direction and move forward, so that Karl can chuck the coins behind them. I had hoped that Rick was an innocent bystander, but I cant believe that Rick didn't realise exactly what happened here.

Now let's pretend that this coin throwing nonsense is really ghosts, making coins out of thin air, and then dropping them exactly where Karl is. How could the MH team prove this was all legit? The easiest option is to bloody well use more cameras. But they refuse to do that. Despite the fact that no one in history has ever filmed something appearing out of nowhere on a ghost hunt. Credible footage of that happening would be worth millions. Yet Karl refuses to stump up a few hundred quid on a bunch of cheap portable cameras. Or even ask people to use their smartphone. Either he is an idiot, or he is faking and knows he cant fake if there are a lot of cameras about.

I wonder if someone could count up all the coins ever thrown on Most Haunted. I assume that if a ghost was to throw a coin, you would keep it, so in theory Karl should have a huge collection of these ghost coins at home. And they should match up perfectly in number to every coin ever thrown on Most Haunted. Anyone fancy working out the number?

Karl asks the ghosts to make a heartbeat noise. Even though ghosts do not have hearts.
Rick and Karl both seem very happy, but nothing is being picked up on camera, so all a bit pointless.

And another set of ads.

Yvette is still by that table, and asking the ghosts to effect Beardy. Nothing happens.

This episode is really dragging.

Yvette is hearing taps, and gets all excited, again all pointless as "evidence" since we cant see everyone's feet.

Karl asks the ghost to tap for yes or no etc, so take a drink people!

And back with Yvette and she asks the ghost to make a noise with its voice! That's another drink!

Both Yvette and her team, and Karl and his team are asking questions of the ghosts. We cant hear any replies, so we are literally watching people ask and answer questions to no one. This is absurd.

Suddenly Yvette gets all excited and decides to lie on the table. Glen can hardly control his raging boner.

Never in Glens life up until this point as he wished that all the camera batteries would go dead at once.

The table remains still, despite Glen nervously shaking.

And another ad. I am starting to wonder if UKTV have paid the adblocking companies on Chrome to let their ads through, as I have never had ads before.

"Do something to me, no not you Glen" - Yvette Fielding

Yvette sits up, she has waited too long for something to happen.

Beardy decides to "have a go" on the table. This is not how Glen had imagined the night's events were going to play out.

While moving his hand back and forth, Beardy hilariously claims it feels like the tale is moving.

Of course it is not actually moving, and you will note the position of the camera that is in the worst possible position to show any kind of movement on the table. And any static camera set back to get everything in frame would easily prove the claims.

While talking about the table moving, the other bloke reveals that it had moved like this when Glen had been on it, but we haven't seen that footage. So clearly they all had a go on the table. I wonder if Glens pocket bulge was a bit awkward to show on camera?

Karl and Rick are going from room to room desperately trying to find the fireplace where someone allegedly was killed. The ghost isn't doing anything.

Wow they are not as stupid as I assumed, and they did put the camera down to film them. Of course it doesn't show all the feet of the table, or the bloke on the right in full, but for the idiots of Most Haunted, this is pretty cool.

Suddenly the table with Beardy starts to levitate about a foot off the ground! WOW, we finally have proof. Oh wait that never happened. How strong is this cough medicine?

Ok Beardy is claiming the table is undulating back and forth, the length of his body, and the people touching the table all confirm this. HOWEVER Beardy is clearly moving his feet which is causing the movement. How this got through the edit room I have no idea. He is literally using his feet to create a slight momentum on the table. It is only a slight effect but it is clearly his feet that is creating the slight rocking and not the ghosts.

The Jabroni brothers (in law) have decided this is the fireplace the ghost died in, despite there being no proof either in the records, or from the ghost that this is the case, they have just decided that it is, and that's that.

Fred has strangely been missing in action on this episode, other than at the start when they replayed his coin throwing. I wonder if he went outside for a smoke and the door locked behind him.

Suddenly out of nowhere you can clearly see Beardy's soul leave his body. Incredible evidence right there.

After a moment Beardy's soul re-enters body forcefully through his colon, and then the episode ends.

This was a poor episode, like really poor, and continued the trend of the previous two episodes. You can tell money is tight at Most Haunted when they drag this rubbish out for 3 episodes.

The ONLY thing that happened in tonight's episode was Karl throwing some more coins OFF CAMERA.

That's it. Nothing else.

I refuse to even score this episode. One of the worst ever made.

REVIEW: Most Haunted - Hodroyd Hall Pt 2 - Airdate 08/02/2019

I would like to start off with an apology.

After I published last weeks review, I was accosted by a group of social justice warriors. One in particular launched a verbal barrage at me, which to be honest caught me by surprise.

Their anger was directed at me due to a single line in last weeks review. A line which was complimenting Yvette Fielding. At first they had misread it and thought I was insulting her, but even after pointing out that I had complimented her, it was already too late, the talons were out and I was to be their prey. I had complimented Yvette on her high waisted jeans which in turn complimented her figure, something we don't see very often due to her love of huge Premier League Manager coats.

I commented that for a 50 year old woman how good she looked. However there was one specific group of words the SJWs had been offended by, that being "post menopausal".

They took offence that at first why couldn't a woman who was "post menopausal" be sexy, and then when they understand I had said the opposite, they then took offence that I used the term at all.

Accusations of "Casual Sexism" were thrown at me, and they even tried to get various women's right campaigners to attack me too.

To avoid any issues, I edited the line and removed the words "post menopausal".

The abuse carried on, and I was basically described as being insidious, a misogynist, and various other anti-man terms. I believe at some point "Toxic Masculinity" was also thrown in there.

So with that I would line to apologise to all the social justice warriors out there, to all you signal virtuing feminists on Twitter I am very sorry. It was never my intention to offend, and there is nothing that hurts me more than a bunch of miserable, childless, middle aged, "bob cut" cat ladies to be annoyed with me, or to be upset in any way at what I write. These articles are always written off the cuff, with no pre-planning, no real thought, I try to amuse people and give light in what is a very dark subject matter.

So with that apology, in honour of the social justice warriors, who always have #FBPE in their twitter name, the following review will be 100% politically correct, pro belief and pro woman.

The following synopsis of the episode was written by an unpaid intern at UKTV, who surely deserves to be paid, as it contains the kind of poetic, thoughtful preamble of the legendary James Madison. And it thoroughly deserves our attention and respect.

"Yvette and the team are put to the test at Hodroyd Hall, as activity seems to be all around them, and something is following them."

As the episode starts we come face to face with this disclaimer, a disclaimer they are forced to air due to the evil male overlords at OFCOM who are paid off by white billionaire men who support Brexit.

Sadly there is no escape, but you can rest assured that Most Haunted is most definitely NOT entertainment! It is the complete opposite.

We are back at Hodroyd Hall for part 2 of this special 3 part investigation.

If you remember in part 1 we had some spirits drop some coins right next to where Karl was standing. Clearly the ghosts only did this so that horrible nasty skeptics would blame Karl, thus proving that ghosts are real, and these evil ghosts clearly wanted to set Karl up to be mocked.

Yvette is with Karl and Fred, and they have the laptop set up to record for EVPs, and Yvette is talking out to the ghosts, asking them to make some noise and tap out.

Yvette is pointing out letters on the laptop and asking the ghosts to tap if the letter matches their name. What a clever and genius idea to communicate with the spirits this is. Although it is unlikely that a spirit would even know what a laptop is, or understand how a keyboard works, not to mention the way the typed letter appears compared to how words were written hundreds of years ago, that doesn't matter.

And for those toxic men out there that would ask such asinine questions like "If a ghost can throw a coin or make a tap/knock on the floor, why cant it press a key on a keyboard which would take a fraction of the effort than throwing a coin" I say to you, shut up. We don't need your toxic masculinity around here. It is clearly easier and much quicker for a ghost to see someone point at a key and then tap the floor, than it would be to just type out their name.

The ghost has revealed his name is Henry Harries, and he was 55 when he died and he died in May 1901.

Idiot "Septics" would just say that Yvette researched a name before hand, and just typed it out. But why would she do that? She has no possible motive. And you cant prove she cheated, therefore it is all 100% real.

Glen, Darren (the man with excessive facial hair), and Rick, the relative of Yvette who bravely stepped in at the last minute, and refused to be paid, are also investigating an area, but aren't getting much luck. Clearly the spirits are female, and the last thing they want is to be left alone with 3 men.

Especially when one has facial hair which is a clear sign of toxic masculinity.

Back with Yvette, Fred and Karl, and Karl asks Fred to check his records, and low and behold there was indeed a man called Henry Harries who died at 55, right outside the location, and this totally backs up everything the ghost told Yvette, and 100% proves the existence of ghosts.

There is no way Yvette could have possibly researched this beforehand, and as you know we must always "believe all women" in everything they say, as they are always honest and never lie, even if they are actively making money from the claim.

UPDATE: The excellent Ellis Moon (Twitter @theshadowplane) has spotted something that I would like to share.

"Henry Harries did not die just outside the Hall as Fred implies. 

He died at Race common Road Barnsley which is 7.5 miles from Hodroyd.

Article from Sheffield Evening Telegraph 11/05/1901 as proof."


As soon as the episode has finished I will ring the JREF and demand they hand over $1m to the Most Haunted team, but to write it only in Yvette's name as the men cant be trusted.

Yvette now wants Henry to spell out a word or sentence to describe how he felt when he left this world and went to the next.

The word he spells is "Bliss".

Yvette asks him if he is happy and if he is with his family, and he says yes.

I am assuming he knew that the very trust worthy and honest Most Haunted team would be investigating the place where he had this terrible accident and decided to just pop by and visit so he could relive his death, purely for the benefit of a TV show that airs to a few hundred thousand people.

Yvette is still asking questions to Henry, and although to a man the questions would sound really idiotic and patronising, Yvette says it with such authority and grace that as a strong independent woman, the ghost is clearly impressed with her intelligence and replies each time.

The Toxic Duo and Rick are still together, and although it is not shown on camera, and I have no way of knowing, I am sure they were objectifying women, and making disgusting noises with their bottoms, and burping too.

But on camera, they are talking to the ghosts and nothing is happening, clearly the ghosts are not impressed by them.

19 minutes in and Yvette is still at the keyboard translating ghost taps to words. It is this kind of serious investigating that proves that Most Haunted is real. And although some would say they are just trying to stretch out the episode and fill time, clearly those people have never been on a real investigation.

If a ghost was tapping while Yvette pointed at letters, some very idiotic people would suggest that Yvette, nor anyone else present would need to see what letter she was pressing, but clearly that wouldn't work, because sometimes ghosts look through the eyes of the living, so would need for Yvette and/or Fred to see what she was doing, so the ghost would know when to tap.

And just because 100% of experiments of this nature that have ever been conducted IN HISTORY, fail when the people taking part are blindfolded, doesn't mean it doesn't work, it just means it didn't work that specific time, and any way, what would a man know about science and investigating? Just because 853 men have won the Nobel Prize compared to just 51 women, just means that men have male privilege and women are held back.

The teams all change up, and brother and sister are investigating together again.

Karl is in the attic on his own.
He is hearing knocking and seeing "movement", that although is OFF CAMERA, does not mean he imagined it or is lying.

Fred is also on his own, and is hearing bangs and knocks.

This guy, who I have no idea of his name, is stood with his buttons on his shirt undone, if that was a women she would be slut shamed, and called all manner of horrid names, but because this is a white man, no one bats an eye lid. And it is this kind of toxic masculinity that is destroying society. Look at him with his sleeves turned up, it is like a slap in the face of Dame Millicent Fawcett.

Also they are hearing knocks and bangs from the ghosts, nothing on camera though.

Glen has gone back to his MacBook pro to listen out for EVPs.

Yvette with her brother are hearing shuffling noises.

Karl is still in the attic and is getting very nervous. Almost as if something is about to happen.
Clearly the ghosts are psychic as a door suddenly slams shut.

Now unfortunately the door slams right at the moment Karl turns his camera away, so we dont actually see it slam. But it was definitely ghosts, in fact you know it is ghosts because as he turned the camera away the ghosts created a slight blur in the footage so that skeptics would think there was an edit, and that Karl just closed the door himself, and added in the sound affect afterwards. But no that was not what happened and it was definitely ghosts.

Remember that ghosts are by their very nature crafty, so will always wait until the camera is facing away before doing something, and although a second camera would catch them out, the ghosts know that Most Haunted only have 3 cameras between them. Also the presence of real ghosts will cause the audio to be affected and make it sound like audio has been edited in post production.

Fred is on his own, and as he walks towards the corner of a room, I thought that he had dropped a coin, but it is then revealed that it was in fact a ghost who had thrown it but from Fred's position.
The coin lands tails up, something the ghost did on purpose to completely throw off the narrative they had been pushing in the last episode of coins always landing heads up when thrown by ghosts.

Again further proof the ghosts are crafty. And to prove just how crafty, the ghost again waits for Fred to point the camera the other way, and throws another coin which lands tails up.

Yvette Fielding intelligently asks the ghost to make a noise with its voice. Because ghosts are famous for making noises with their voice as any real investigator knows.

Yvette has seen something move in the hallway, luckily her brother Rick is filming the back of her head, and therefore protecting the viewer from seeing something that could give them nightmares. It is the thoughtful attitude of men like Rick, who enjoys drinking soymilk, as well as calling for white people to stop being so racist when they smirk, and who self identifies as a feminist that really makes shows like this great.

I wish we had more men like this, stay at home house husband type men who let their wives order them about, and who always insist on the woman driving the car, and even when the woman cant get into the parking space, he would never dare ask to park for her, because he know that even if it takes her 243 tries she will do it eventually and anyway it would be much better than a man parking, even if he did get in the space first time.

Yvette is convinced she is seeing a small child playing, but sadly the camera is not picking anything up.

Back with Karl, his battery is dying, and the footage cuts as he sees something and the episode ends.

I have decided against giving this episode a score, as who am I, as a man to judge a TV show that features a woman. So I suggest everyone score the episode yourself.

I look forward to part 3 of this investigation.

Upon re-reading this review, it appears that I assumed the genders of everyone on the crew, and clearly to do this would be transphobic, therefore I would like to apologise to the LGBTTQQIAAP community.

REVIEW: Most Haunted - Hodroyd Hall Pt 1 - Airdate 01/02/2019

Imagine if you went on your podcast and you reported news about Most Haunted that you got from a parody twitter account with a few hundred followers, who in turn copied that news from BadPsychics, would that make you incompetent or pathetic? Just curious.

Also in unrelated news I am willing to go on ANY believer or pro psychic PodCast to be interviewed or just to give my opinion. You only need to ask. Trust me I am PodCast Gold!

And with that let's take a look at some sticky, dirty, nasty blurbage from those stuck up nerds at UKTV.

"Hodroyd Hall - an all-but-deserted manor house that boasts murder, death and intrigue among its history - becomes the setting for one of the most intriguing investigations to date."

First thing you will notice in the title of this review is that this is another multi-part episode, this time it is 1 of 3. Yes 3 episodes. Basically that means 3 times the money for a 3rd of the effort.

Yvette is showing off shoulders! YVETTE IS SHOWING OFF SHOULDERS!
The end is nigh, the end is nigh, all run away, the end is nigh.......

What a refreshing change to see Yvette in her summer clothes, although I expect she will don a hoody the moment Glen is around, he aint getting his hands on her naked shoulders, even with a thin layer of material to protect her. For a woman in her 50s, Yvette has a good figure, good for her. No jokes about the turn ups please, this isn't 1996.

Tonight they are in the Yorkshire dales at a place called Hodroyd Hall which according to Yvette is teeming with ghosts. (Spoiler: They don't find any ghosts)

She actually first wore this top a couple of years ago on This Morning.

Who needs Mel Crump when you have an over 50s Yvette Fielding in tight high waist jeans looking half her age?

As soon as Glen arrives Yvette quickly covers up. And now Glen is in a mood and refusing to even look at Yvette. He even wore his smartest sports casual jacket as he was hoping tonight would be the night. Oh well.

Yvette is talking about the place, and we have Ghost Monks, Nuns, Children, you name it this place has it all.

We are told the story of a maid who was pushed into a fireplace by someone and killed, and despite there being no proof of this, we are are being primed to believe that there will be a ghost maid on the show later on.

Glen has calmed down now, and he is doing his best chat up/lean pose. This is the one he gets all the ladies with.

The walk round is complete and the investigation begins.
I have mentioned before a number of times that episodes in general are filmed in a few hours. This idea that they are spending an whole night at a location is a lie. They arrive, they eat, chat, set up, film for a few hours, then leave. For a 3 episode run they need no more than 2 hours and 15 minutes of footage, and keep in mind they can film different people at the same time. So even a 3 episode investigation can be filmed in just over a couple of hours.

Anyway they switch night vision on and almost immediately something is thrown OFF CAMERA as they are leaving the room, Yvette Fielding screams and we have a little piece of brass or copper that has been thrown.

Just a reminder, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that is thrown OFF CAMERA is NOT a ghost.
It is scientific fact that ghosts do not throw things unless a camera is filming them.

I re-watched the footage, and it would be Karl who chucked this, he was last as they left and he waited till the second camera was filming away from him. This will be a common trend throughout the episode.

It is in this segment that we get our first look at the returning Rick Fielding, (The brother of Yvette) he left the show after Series 4, so it has been a long time since he has appeared.

So in this new series we have had Yvette's daughter and now her Brother. Both working for free. They really must be skint.

Even Watson hasn't appeared yet.

I really cant remember if Rick was credible or not, anyone remember if he used to throw stuff when he last appeared.

Notice the huge light on the camera, just in case you thought they were really in the dark.

There is more pointless talking and then another bit of pipe is thrown, OFF CAMERA, and just behind Karl again. Not seen Stuart yet? Maybe they gave him the night off?

So again I know I repeat myself way too often, but real investigators, after the first thing was thrown, they would place cameras in all corners and cover 100% of the room. If you don't have enough proper cameras, you can use smartphones, of which everyone has.

Instead on Most Haunted they just keep on going, no controls, no camera coverage. Just the same old sillyness, and that is how you know the show is 100% faked. Because if it was real, what I suggested, is the first thing they would do every time.

We then get a hilarious scene as Yvette starts to look for Fred who has done a runner, and Yvette just repeatedly shouts FRED, FRED, FRED etc.

It reminded me of this.

They find Fred and he says he had to leave as he suddenly felt overcome with nausea.

I wonder if he tried to do that same trick he did once before whereby he pretended to pass out, but then no one bothered to find him, or when Yvette did find him, she never had the camera on her, so it was a pointless stunt. Also if you remember when he tried that before, his own camera exposed the whole thing as fake, which we showed, so that would be why he never had a camera on him this time.

Back to the investigation, and there is a sound of something being thrown OFF CAMERA, sounded like coins, they investigate, then the sound again and Yvette finds an old one penny.

Another coin is thrown OFF CAMERA, and again it is from behind Karl. So Karl is definitely the one throwing the coins, and remember we caught him doing this once before.

And another coin, again OFF CAMERA and right by Karl.

I wonder if these are the exact same pennies he threw in a previous episode?

Someone needs to check Karl's pockets.
Worth noting that Glen doesn't appear to be in this scene at all.

And more coins thrown, OFF CAMERA.

Getting a bit silly now.

"I can barely hear it with me ears" - Beardy Bloke.

They seem to have moved on from the coins now, probably since Karl doesn't have any left and Yvette has pocked them all. So now we get the odd groan and tapping and so on. Usual rubbish.

Glen has re-appeared, and he seems to be in a different location with Beardy.
No coins for them, just really faint taps that could be anything.

Back with the gang, and more coins and bits are thrown, again OFF CAMERA, and from Karl's area.
No point commenting on this, you get the idea.

Thankfully just over 10 minutes left.

Glen, Fred and someone else have now gone down to the cellar, and now it is Fred who is throwing coins OFF CAMERA.

A real skeptic would instantly check everyone's pockets.

As they look around on the floor like idiots, do any of you remember when Yvette Fielding claimed that One Direction star Harry Styles sent her sex texts and wanted to have an affair with her, and then when she got called out on the claims she quickly backtracked and denied it all. If you don't remember this, the story can be read here.


More coins are being thrown OFF CAMERA.

Glen finds one and says the immortal line
"It's heads up, what are the chances?"

Well Glen, I can tell you right now, it is literally has a 50% chance of being heads up.

Just like the earlier segment of Karl throwing coins, now Fred is throwing them. And it just goes on for so long and is way too obvious.

And yes a few of them are landing heads up, but please note we NEVER see any of the coins thrown, it is all off camera, so there is nothing stopping Fred or anyone placing the coins heads up on the floor, and throwing something else to make the noise.

Clearly Rick hasn't forgot how to film himself on a ghost hunt.

And after a few more coins, the episode ends on a total anticlimax.

We get some preview footage of the next episode and that is it.

This was a bad episode, like really bad. The only thing that happened was Karl and Fred chucking coins OFF CAMERA, and Karl chucking some brass pipe bits at the start, that is it. Nothing else happened, what a complete and utter waste of my time.

So with that, for the complete lack of effort, I am giving the episode a MINUS 2 out of 10.

One of the worst episodes they have ever aired.
