Ghost Hunters Season Finale, 2007

Tonight's Ghost Hunters was the season finale but, as I've pointed out time and again, that's something of a misnomer because Ghost Hunters runs in "half-seasons." Sci-Fi does like 6 new episodes twice a year, which almost makes an entire season (a full season is 13 episodes, with an option to pick up the back 9) -- when you include the Halloween specials, it works out.

Seeing as how Ghost Hunters is one of Sci-Fi's highest-rated and most popular shows, the only reasoning I can give for this (and it is completely a guess) is that it's a reality show and the guys involved have families and day jobs, so they can't do it full-time. But that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, because you would think doing this full-time would be more lucrative than their day jobs... I don't know.

At any rate, tonight was the "season finale" and it was a retrospective of previous events, and Jason's and Grant's favorite episodes/investigations. But it was also a round table discussion with the group, hosted by Josh from Destination Truth, in which they discussed general, sometimes personal, things and answered questions from the audience submitted via e-mail. I did not see the last 1/2-hour of the show because something else I wanted to watch came on (if I catch the repeat later, I may comment), but the one question I noticed they did not address was what happened to Brian Harnois and those cats. We answered that here, but I don't know how close to the truth we got, and I just don't care anymore.

A pretty good episode with some behind-the-scenes stuff and a little bit more about the players. I hope they show the entire 1-1/2 hours of the program in reruns (a lot of times, they edit them down to fit the 60-minute timeslot) so I can catch the whole thing. They should -- after all, they can make that work in one of those all-day marathons, especially since the shows are divided into two 1/2-hour investigations.
