The question remains: Can you still believe?
Ghost Hunters: Season Six, Part 2 is a collection of episodes that chronicle the journeys of the T.A.P.S. team (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) as they venture from haunted house to haunted house, trying to get some sort of information or background or proof or something about the potentially paranormal creepiness that seems to exist around every nook and cranny of this show's pseudo-documentary narrative world.
Ghost Hunters is heavy on moody music and dedicated on-screen personalities - these are definitely the show's two most significant dramatic assets - but while the impetus behind their investigations have logic and reason to them ("Is this house haunted? Only one way to find out..."), their conclusions somehow always come up short. Sure, it'd be great if we could get a nice, fact-checked Polaroid shot with hosts Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson with their arms around a ghost, but even with not-quite-provable scenarios, the Ghost Hunters team never makes a convincing case for themselves.
This is what keeps Ghost Hunters tethered to a humblingly disappointing flatline as far as narrative fulfillment goes. The show has legions of fans - it ain't going anywhere any time soon - but Season 6, Part 2 is the same episode every time. The gadgets are nifty, the paranormal detective chicks look hot, and everyone seems to have a grasp on what it is they're doing with every episode's task here, but the end results are always inconclusive.
They still believe, though - but can you.....?
