the show is ok. the only thing that is corny is that no matter what house they go to (even the one where grant got burned on his back) they say "we're her to help!" but then at the end of the show all they say is "yeah you got a ghost but everyone is safe, gotta go, bye!" i would be like "well yeah of course" you could tell that hester from the myrtles felt that way too.
well and its lame when jason flatters himself into thinkin that his saying something is haunted in like god came down and said it. lol.
Your points are some of the things that drive me nuts about the show too. I also hate how Jason and Grant will not go through evidence or set up equipment. Going through evidence is tedious but when you get that wonderful capture it is awesome.
I would want a show like this but only if my contract allowed me to have some production power. I would have to be able to certify that nothing was tampered with in any way before it went on the air. I will always keep my integrity with my evidence no matter what.
I occasionally watch the show, it is entertaining and even fun some times but I have a very difficult time taking it seriously.
