Ghost Hunters International is a paranormal investigation show that premiered on Syfy in 2008. It follows a team of investigators as they travel the world in search of ghostly activity. The show's main investigators are Barry Fitzgerald, Robb Demarest, and Joe Chin, who bring their varied experiences and talents to each investigation.

The show starts with the team arriving at a new location, often a historical site with a reputation for being haunted. They begin by interviewing eyewitnesses to the supposed paranormal activity, and gathering as much information as possible about the location's history. This sets the stage for the investigation, which usually takes place overnight.

The team uses a variety of equipment to detect any signs of paranormal activity, including thermal cameras, EMF meters, and EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) recorders. Throughout the investigation, they communicate with each other and with any possible spirits using walkie-talkies and other devices. They also conduct experiments in an attempt to provoke a response from any spirits that may be present.

The show is notable for its scientific approach to investigating the paranormal. The Ghost Hunters International team does not automatically assume that every bump in the night is a ghost; instead, they carefully analyze each piece of evidence they collect to determine whether it could have a natural explanation. This approach has sometimes led to frustrating investigations, where the team is unable to find evidence of any paranormal activity. However, it also makes the show stand out from other paranormal investigation shows that are quick to jump to supernatural conclusions.

One of the most interesting aspects of Ghost Hunters International is the way it incorporates the history and culture of each location they visit. For example, during an investigation in Cambodia, the team learned about the local belief in duong chinch, or ghost wives. This knowledge helped them better understand the local culture and allowed them to tailor their investigation to the specific beliefs of the people living in the area.

The team's dynamic also adds to the show's appeal. Barry Fitzgerald brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team; he has a background in both paranormal investigation and traditional Irish folklore. Robb Demarest is the lead investigator and is known for his no-nonsense approach to paranormal investigation. Joe Chin, the technical manager, is responsible for setting up and maintaining the team's equipment. Together, they make a well-rounded team that is consistently entertaining to watch.

Overall, Ghost Hunters International is a unique take on the paranormal investigation genre. Its commitment to a scientific approach, combined with interesting locations and a talented team of investigators, make it a must-watch for fans of the paranormal.

Ghost Hunters International is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (62 episodes). The series first aired on January 9, 2008.
