Ghost Asylum is a paranormal reality show that premiered on Destination America in 2014. The show stars a team of investigators consisting of Chris Smith, Scott Porter, and Brannon Smith, who have devoted their lives to researching and investigating paranormal activity. The team travels to various locations across the United States, searching for evidence of the supernatural and conducting experiments to try and capture proof of their findings.

The show's premise is unique in that the team uses scientific methods to capture evidence of ghosts and other paranormal phenomena. They employ a range of equipment, such as electromagnetic field (EMF) detectors, thermal imaging cameras, and audio recorders, to capture data and investigate the activity. The team members all come from diverse backgrounds, with Chris being an electrical engineer, Scott being a historian, and Brannon being a former marine.

Throughout the show, the team encounters a range of paranormal activity, from ghostly apparitions and disembodied voices to unexplained movements and objects. They investigate a variety of locations, including abandoned hospitals, asylums, prisons, and other sites known to be haunted. The team often spends several nights at each location, gathering data and conducting experiments to try and capture evidence of the paranormal.

What sets Ghost Asylum apart from other paranormal reality shows is the team's approach to investigating the supernatural. They use a scientific approach to gather data and try to explain the activity they encounter. They also create their own equipment to help capture evidence, such as a "TrapCam" to capture images of any unexplained movements in the location they are investigating.

Another unique aspect of the show is the team's dedication to capturing evidence of the paranormal. They go to great lengths to investigate each location and conduct experiments to try and capture proof of their findings. The team's commitment to their work and passion for the paranormal shines through in every episode.

However, the show is not without its critics. Some paranormal enthusiasts have accused the team of using fake equipment and manipulating their findings to create more dramatic storylines. Others argue that the team's scientific approach is flawed and that paranormal activity cannot be explained using traditional scientific methods.

Despite the criticisms, Ghost Asylum has remained a popular show among paranormal enthusiasts. Fans of the show appreciate the team's dedication to investigating the paranormal and capturing evidence of the supernatural. They also enjoy the show's unique approach to investigating the unknown and the team's dynamic personalities.

In conclusion, Ghost Asylum is a paranormal reality show that follows a team of investigators as they travel across the United States investigating supernatural activity. The show stands out from other paranormal reality shows due to its scientific approach to investigating the paranormal and the team's commitment to capturing evidence of the supernatural. While the show has faced criticism, it remains a popular show among paranormal enthusiasts and continues to captivate audiences with its unique blend of science and the unexplained.
