Big Vision Listens

"Big Vision, the company responsible for putting out "Ghost Hunters: Season 2, Parts 1 and 2" and "Ghost Hunters: Season 1," still have a long way to go with the production quality of their discs, but they definitely listen to their customers and attempt to make corrections. For starters, they've hulked up the DVD cases for Season 2, making it virtually impossible for the discs to become dislodged during shipping. This was a major complaint of many folks of Season 1's release. Secondly, the picture has gotten better. Granted, it's not perfect, and it's still too grainy during the investigations to see everything that's going on, but it has improved slightly. Finally, the audio is okay. As stated before, there is still plenty of space for changes and improvements, but Big Vision seems to be taking its customers advice to heart.
Now, on to Season 2, Part 1, in which we find Jason and Grant and the rest of the TAPS team seeking out more ghosts or lack thereof. This particular set includes one of my favorite cases: Myrtles Plantation. They also revisit Eastern State Penitentiary and tackle the Rolling Hills Asylum, the wacky Winchester House, and the U.S.S. North Carolina.
TAPS has always managed to impress me with their professionalism. Search any number of "ghost hunting" websites and you'll see that many of them are nothing more than a bunch of teen and college-aged kids hanging out in the graveyard or trespassing onto abandoned property. TAPS takes the paranormal very seriously. It almost takes an act of God to make them label a location as haunted. When they do, you can rest assured that they've done everything in their power to debunk a ghost's existence.
I highly recommend this DVD set, as well as Part 2 of Season 2 and the first season. You'll be impressed at how the TAPS team takes time to explain what an EMF detector is, what "orbs" are and probably aren't, and how something as simple as a mirror can play tricks on your mind.
Another great thing about this particular set is in the deleted scenes area where Brian is confronted by a woman and called a few derogatory terms. It's fun at the expense of Brian, but let's face it, Brian's just a funny guy.
Great Show, Horrible sound and video quality.

"Many have already said it, but I'll say it again. This is one of the best shows on T.V. So why the crappy video and sound quality. The audio in particular is horrible. It reminds me of what it sounds like when you talk to close to a microphone. And the video is very choppy and the colors vary. Watching the show on the SciFi channel is ten times better than this DVD. I have never complained about DVD quality before, but this is so bad that it is actually a distraction. I don't want people to not buy the dvd, but you might be better off getting the itunes version."
Big Vision is remastering the Season 2 sets!

"10/14/07 UPDATE: The remastered DVDs finally arrived, and they were worth the wait. The audio on the discs is still a little louder than average, but the distortion is gone. If you were waiting to pick these up until the audio problems had been fixed, you should be safe to pick up your copy now. The show has finally gotten the DVD release that it has deserved all along...
This was recently posted to Jason Hawes' Myspace site. Big Vision has heard our complaints, and is moving to rectify the situation...

Ghost Hunters dvd are poor quality items

"Having experience numerous freeze and skip issues with season one, I was very disappointed to find that season 2, parts 1 and 2 had such atrocious audio problems as well as two disk 6's and no disk 7.
I fired off a very sarcastic email to Big Vision Entertainment and was extremely surprised to receive a gracious response from their Vice President offering to replace the sets via Fed Ex, which I accepted.
The replacement sets never arrived and my subsequent emails were ignored.
The moral of the story is that Big Vision produces a bad product. They fooled me twice, but will not do so a third time.
