Employees Only - Who You Gonna Call?

The fact that they call the show Ghost Hunters is a bit misleading, but so much the better for my comic. As for the actual show itself, I'd describe it more as Ghost Surveillance, which I guess doesn't have quite as snappy a ring to it.

Almost every episode I've watched, and admittedly I've seen quite a few, has been more of a ghostly tease than anything else. I remember one episode where James and Grant swear they saw a full bodied apparition and wouldn't you know it, it happened off camera. Oh, it was exciting for them though. Usually that's all you get - vaguery and hints at something spectral; except, I should say, for audio recordings - for some reason ghosts love yapping it up for EVP.
