Never saw any ghosts, apparitions ... Nothing

I've watched ... it seems ... about 100 shows. Never once have they shown any visible signs of apparitions ... no ghosts, no white smoky clouds. Occasionally, a vague photo of indistinguishable movement is shown. Cameras are limited. There are none that display multiple angles. Often, the most interesting events seem to occur where no cameras are set. One participant even stated that he has never seen a ghost in all the time he worked there. Something is amiss. Even when they apparently investigate a demonic presence, they conclude that these spirits are never dangerous. It's a perfect outcome type of show. In the real world, perfect outcomes never ever continue without dangerous encounters. Spirits can be vindictive. If you have ever watched some other reality shows ... it might make sense that Ghost Hunters was accompanied by a medium, as a safeguard. Nope, dangerous repercussions never occur. I smell ... fake!
