Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal

Jun 12, 2008 | Posted by: Maxie | Full story: www.variety.com

It’s a bit difficult to discern what’s more frightening about this A&E series: the teens who talk to the spirits of deceased children, or the camera operators and director who’ve decided that the only way to give these kids credence is to zoom in on the pupils of their eyes. Either way, it doesn’t take a medium to recognize that “Psychic Kids” edits its subjects in a way that makes their conversations and interactions with the dead -- or is that undead? -- feel like badly conceived science fiction.

Chip Coffey is an unethical fraud. He once purchased my legal name and when you put my name into the browser it would take you to his website. He told me I could buy my own name back for $1500. He is as phony as they come and this show is as dumb as they come. Kids that are genuinely able to connect with spirit are not "Haunted" Why a buffoon.

Ok here we have a situation.,

Do you believe in GOD?
DO you believe in the EVIEL?

Listen if you closed minded indavidualities think
for one moment that we are the only ones that rome
this earth you are sadly mistaken when you sleep you drift, when you die you drift you may make it to the other side or you may not! the part where you may not means your still here and driftig on this earth, this is why you here so many stories
not just from one indavidual you will here stories through out your life span and all over the world.

SO THINK ABOUT IT FOR A MINUTE GIVE YOUR SELF A MOMENT TO ABSORB THIS.

Not really sure what you are trying to say here, can edit it so it's a little easier to read?

Today Dec 31st 2011 I watched the episode about the girl seeing the man who they determine is or was a brakeman before he died. A sketch artist drew a picture with the girls help and a member of the team compared it to a old photo someone in town had given him that somehow went along with the story "Sorry, I missed what the connection was"
The girl who was seeing this man in her moms home said "that's him !" when she saw the old photo.
I looked up the word brakeman on Wikipedia and there was a photo of a brakeman standing on top of a train. Sure enough the photo in Wikipedia was the exact same photo that was used on the show.

And so we see how we remember things and how our minds get fooled into thinking we have psychic abilities. Good post.

I would like to know just how many times the words:"scared, frightened, etc. are used is just not believable. The writers must be told to put those words in as much as possible. IT's really funny. The whole show is a joke.
