A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series assumes the existence of ghosts, spirits, and paranormal activity.
Positive Role Models
Zaffis is respectful of the people he's helping and considers what he's doing as being helpful to others. He also educates team members and viewers on the difference between paranormal activity and phenomena that are caused by the living.
Violence & Scariness
Potentially haunted items sometimes include guns and other items associated with violence and death. Some team members are spooked by what they find (or feel) during investigations. Some clients are distressed by the findings.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality series -- which focuses on the investigation of hauntings and paranormal activity -- could be too scary for younger viewers or people who are uncomfortable with this kind of material. Expect occasional salty language ("hell" is audible; stronger words are bleeped). There are some interesting historical stories being told here, but the vibe can certainly be creepy.
Is It Any Good?
The series takes a curiously informative approach to understanding paranormal activity, combining the history of communities, buildings, and antique objects. Zaffis' commitment to helping people restore a sense of peace in their lives gives the show credibility, while he also educates both his team members and viewers about the difference between phenomena caused by the dead and what's ultimately created by the living.
Updates about what happens after the supposedly possessed items are removed aren't always offered, leaving viewers to wonder whether Zaffis and his team were actually successful in their efforts. Meanwhile, the show's flair for the dramatic -- which comes in the form of ominous-sounding music and added visual effects -- sometimes makes it seem a little hokey. But folks who like this sort of thing will definitely find it entertaining.
Did we miss something on diversity?
