Join any paranormal forum in existence on the internet and you will quickly find that ‘Most Haunted’ is the most hated paranormal programming available today. People might’ve started out liking Ghost Hunters and then found them to be not to their high standards, but most people I’ve ever met believe me to be from another planet when I mention anything about liking ‘Most Haunted’. I do like the show for its historical value, but that’s not what this post is about.
According to a report from the UK newspaper The Sun, Yvette Fielding, ‘Most Haunted’s’ hostess everyone loves to hate is calling it quits. At least as hostess of MH. I have to say, though, that if the first sentence of the article is true, Ms Fielding needs a wake-up call quick: “Yvette Fielding has quit cult show Most Haunted – after it failed to find enough ghosts.” If she were any kind of real paranormal investigator, she’d understand that this type of work is not meant to be flaunted on television. If I were to hazard a guess, I’d say 98% of ghost hunting is rather uneventful and shrieking and verbally abusing the dead isn’t going to do anything but make you look like an ass. As I said, I quite like the show for its historical value, but that takes up only half of the hour-long show. Once they actually begin their “investigations” I tend to tune them out. If you’re going to scream and run from the slightest sound, why do it?
It would be interesting to see how the dynamics of the show change without her and Karl (her husband) around, but there’s no word, as yet, of whether the show will continue without them. I can only hope it does, but that when they conduct real investigations, they state at the beginning of every single episode that while nothing may happen, it doesn’t mean that paranormal investigating shouldn’t happen.
