Thor, this series isn't scripted but I enjoy the Travel Channel's "Paranormal Caught on Camera". It's videos from across the world that supposedly capture paranormal moments on camera, whether it be from security cams to cellphones, etc. It is currently showing season 2 now. I get a kick out of it. Some of the vids are obviously, as the Brits would say, bollocks.

But some of the clips...hair raising. The ones that give me shivers are ones that are obviously real happenings that the people involved are truly scared or surprised shitless. Overall the series very entertaining even if many of the shots are questionable at best.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I can't watch such shows because of their sheer stupidity. There's one long-running show in Norway called Ă…NDENES MAKT (roughly translated as THE POWER OF THE SPIRITS), where a host goes to different households in Norway to hear about the 'paranormal activity' going on, and it's just so embarassingly stupid, I want to hide behind a pillow.

I absolutely ADORE paranormal stuff in fiction, but I try to avoid the 'reality' bollocks shows as much as possible.

Much of the clips can be dismissed dismissed and some are just...whatever. But some that I saw, no matter how skeptical...just flat out could not be dismissed. Meaning, there are great gems to be found. I think some of the stuff show can be found on Youtube as well I think. The Bigfoot vids are always grainy and shaky so I dismiss them as flat out ridiculous. But its the hauntings and poltergeist bits that offer the most compelling vids. It's entertaining to say the least.

I got a 2-month HBO subscription, and have discovered a couple of good shows there -- THE OUTSIDER (which is a liimited mini-series, no further seasons planned) and the anthology shows CHANNEL ZERO and ROOM 104.

Also seen SUCCESSION, which was a good non-paranormal show.

All have been added to the list.

Actually, Thor, The Outsider was very popular, so there is some discussion about a season 2. Given the ending, it could happen.

True. I just thought it was a typical Stephen King-ian, downbeat/open ending. I'd certainly be interested in another season. Love that Holly character; again very King-ian -- she's really the show's "Dick Halloran".

SNOWPIERCER has been added to the list. I didn't care much for the film, but I've seen the first episode on Netflix, and it's more rewarding.

Also, DARK suddenly premiered with its third and last season out of the blue. That's fast; I thought it was on hold!

I've added (and finished) the new Netflix series AWAY. I loved the sci fi/Mars expedition part of it, but there's far too much family-schmamily soap opera flasbacks and cross-cutting. What is it with Americans and family obsessions, anyway? I'm thankful for all the space I can have between myself and my family, and never - not even as a kid - needed my parents and siblings around me all the time.

But yeah -- I'm up for a second season about Mars life, if it happens.

Meanwhile, I'm veeeery slowly moving through the third and last season of DARK. I have absolutely no clue about what's going on; it makes TENET look like child's play in comparison. I think I need to rewatch the first two seasons again to make any kind of meaning out of the hyper-complex narrative and character gallery (now not only travelling in time, but across different dimensions as well).
