restored article[edit]

Ok, so we have restored my article; I had deleted it because I thought it might be better as a category, but now it serves as both. I hope someone will see fit to expand it: I shall try and expand to discuss the ethics and legal implications specific to different nations and cultures and media theory etc etc as seems relevant to an emclyclopaedia entry... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Cj.23 (talkcontribs) 01:20, July 26, 2005 – Please sign your posts!

Description: OPENLY fictional as opposed to what? Covertly fictional? You may as well just call them liars. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:43, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

1st paranormal documentary show[edit]

The first paranormal documentary show wasn't "Sightings". "In Search of..." with Leonard Nemoy predated "Sightings" by almost twenty years. Not to say that's the first, but it was aired in the 70's. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 00:20, October 30, 2006 – Please sign your posts!

Clean Up[edit]

The list of shows' air dates needs cleaned up, For example the show entitled Encounters: The Hidden Truth started 1994 not 1991, and lasted to 1996. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:09, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

I removed "The X-Files" and CW's "Supernatural", as they don't seem to fit the category of actual paranormal investigation or even docudrama. Neither show is purported to be factual. Bookbrad (talk) 16:00, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

It seems Supernatural was readded, and I have the same complaint, that scripted fiction shows should not be on a list of paranormal investigation or docudrama shows. Others I see in the list that are scripted fiction: "Kolchak: The Night Stalker", "One Step Beyond", "Medium", and "Ghostwatch". Floracalifornia (talk) 06:28, 26 January 2011 (UTC)Floracalifornia

En dashes[edit]

All the hyphens (-) used for the air-date ranges must be replaced with un-spaced en dashes () per WP:ENDASH, such as in 2005–07. serioushat 19:45, 5 January 2011 (UTC)


Are all the shows under "Examples of notable programs" really notable? Shows that don't even have a wikipedia article and shows where no airdate or channel is mentioned imho don't seem to be notable. Shouldn't it be transformed into a "List of paranormal televesion series"? Further series: Paranormal Borderline (faked; mentioned in Jonathan Frakes), Miracles and Other Wonders (mentioned in Robert Tralins) and Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction (partly fiction, partly not). - (talk) 00:46, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

I agree it should be changed into "List of paranormal television series", and once this change is made y'all should add "The Other Side" which is a paranormal investigation show on the APTN network in Canada — Preceding unsigned comment added by B23Rich (talkcontribs) 01:09, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Galileo Mystery[edit]

Does de:Galileo Mystery count as "paranormal television series"? -IP, 17:52, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
