Great news! 

This is one of SyFy's better paranormal shows, IMO, and one that my two sons and I never miss.

This past season of Haunted Collector was particularly good as things seemed to get even scarier; in addition, the new cast members were not to shabby as well. Can't wait to see what's in store for next season.

I actually met Tim Shaw, a paranormal investigator, while on the set of a local sci-fi movie being filmed in the area, Ombis. Shaw hosts his own radio show, The Black Cat Lounge, and is good friends with John Zaffis.

Small world!

Good stuff.
