Strange TV

If you asked me what kind of TV I like to watch, I would tell you that I like the strange shows that make you think and bend your perspective on reality. Its interesting to see what people think about things that others find outrageous and untrue. Its also fun to form my own opinions about strange facts. Here is a short list of some of the strange shows that I've watched recently and what I think of them.

1. Ghost Adventures - I've been watching this show for years and what intrigues me the most about it are all the cool gadgets these guys have. There is a device they use that maps out the outline of ghosts that aren't visible to the human eye. In one episode during the most recent season, there were four ghosts on a stage performing. They even got one to dance. It was very entertaining.

The commentary in this show is very dramatic and at times very dark, but they visit some really cool places across America that, of course, I would never set foot in. They've even come to Portland to visit the Shanghai Tunnels and did a ride along with the Portland police. Love that episode filmed in my own neck of the woods.

 2. Ghost Hunters - This was the show that originally got me hooked on the paranormal. The way they investigate is completely unique to them. They look at everything through a skeptics eye, trying to debunk everything that happens. Unlike other shows, they don't automatically assume that everything is a ghost and they visit locations where people need help to feel more at ease or want answers as to what they are experiencing. They genuinely want to help people, especially when children are involved.  

3. Ghost Asylum - This is one of my new obsessions. The guys of the Tennessee Wraith Chasers build some of the most elaborate contraptions you have ever seen trying to capture ghosts. I don't understand how a lot of them work, but I like the ones that blow up.

Some of the creepiest places are featured on this show, with histories that are dark and dismal at times, but the boys get to the bottom of things with their southern know how. Definitely a show to watch if you want some in depth ghost hunting.

4. Ghost Brothers - I'm really not sure what to think about this one yet, I haven't seen anything yet that makes me think they are serious about the paranormal. I think it's shown on television because there is nothing else out there like them. These three dudes definitely have a unique way of ghost hunt and yes, they are hilarious, but they freak out over everything. If you want a good laugh and absolutely no evidence captured on any of their devices, then check out ghost brothers, you won't be disappointed.

5. Finding Bigfoot - I know this show isn't a ghost show, but a lot of people think that Bigfoot is rooted in the paranormal, plus, I said strange TV, not ghost TV.

This show was born and raised in the great Northwest with sightings of Bigfoot all across the nation and the world.

When I first started watching this show, Renee, the shows resident skeptic was hard to win over with evidence of Bigfoot. Now that the show has been on the air for a few seasons the who cast quickly jumps to point fingers at Sasquatch. To them, everything from wood knocks to howls in the night is a Bigfoot. They don't even bat an eye these days at the "Evidence."

If you would like to see how people hunt for Bigfoot this is the show for you, but beware, the way they edit the show makes you think they caught something on camera, but they never do. So disappointing.

There are some pretty cool shows out there for us strange and unusual TV watchers. I also enjoy anything that Josh Gates is involved in. Expedition Unknown and Destination Truth. There is also another good one, but its long since been taken off the air, Fact or Faked.

Tell me what your favorite strange show is and if there is one that you think I should check out, leave me a comment.

The Girl With All the Gifts | Movie Review

Title: The Girl with all the Gifts
Genre: Dystopian

Release Date: January 26th, 2017 Rating: 6.7/10 IMDB Cast: Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton
Summary from IMDB: A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie.
IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
