Overview

"Paranormal State" made its debut on the A&E network in December 2007. This documentary program was comprised of an enthusiastic team of college students from Penn State University who wanted to help those troubled by unexplained phenomena. The Paranormal State/Paranormal Research Society's motto was, "To trust, honor, and always seek the truth." The show starred founder and director Ryan Buell along with his group of technicians, investigators and occult specialists. On most of his investigations he was assisted by such paranormal celebrities as Chip Coffey, Lorraine Warren, Chad Calek, and Michelle Belanger. The team was involved with helping frightened people and collecting evidence of the unexplained.

After five seasons and more than 75 episodes, the rumors of staged scenes, questionable evidence, misleading editing, and dissatisfied clients are explored. As other paranormal programming comes along imitating this style of presentation, it's vital that the problems are investigated.

"Paranormal Reality: Investigating Paranormal State" is the first and only book of its kind to take an independent look inside this unique paranormal reality TV show. The authors uncover both positive and negative elements. In their quest to reveal the foundation on which this show was built, they unearth some startling secrets. With a step-by-step analysis of every episode, the authors present the facts. They give voice to those present on the set ranging from production staff, former clients, and various para-celebrities. Casual viewers and diehard fans of the program are taken beyond the thermal cameras, EVPs, atmospheric music, and sound effects.

Authors Kirby Robinson and Lisa Maliga spent countless hours viewing footage and listening to audio tracks. They interviewed former clients, production team members, current and former PRS crew members, and various para-celebrities. The reader journeys behind the scenes of what might be the most controversial paranormal reality show to air on cable TV.

"Paranormal Reality: Investigating Paranormal State" will keep the reader up past Dead Time – not trembling in fear but discovering the truth of paranormal reality.

I very much enjoyed reading this book, did so in one sitting in fact, and enjoyed it enough to take the time to review it.

The authors do a masterful job of breaking the television show Paranormal State down show by show, segment by segment, scene by sc

    Fat, old middle-aged person jealous of a younger, more successfu

    Fat, old middle-aged person jealous of a younger, more successful man. Old plot line, makes for boring books. Some professional editing would help as well.

    A boo hoo booboo of a book

    The field of paranormal research is full of jealous, sniping brats who try to make themselves look good by denigrating other investigators Do I believe that "Paranormal State" is free of discrepancies and probable deceptionS?

    Not a chance.

    Do I believe that these authors' motives are based purely on their concern for paranormal research?

    Even less of a chance.

    Even if I did believe it, their second book on the same topic makes it clear that their motives are anything but pure. This is the literary equivalent of a tantrum.

    So enough with the jealousy and sniping, and tell us your own paranormal experiences. You'll earn a lot more respect that way.
