SyFy’s Auction: Finding your own ‘Hollywood Treasure’


SyFy’s popular new program Hollywood Treasure is a different type of reality-based show.  It has a premise and format that hooks the viewer through the presentation of interesting Hollywood memorabilia, while tapping into the curiosity factor of wanting to know not only how much they are worth but what others are ultimately willing to pay for them.  The show has an addictive, quick-paced formula basically consisting of three ‘hooks’ and each week presents two half-hour episodes.  There are even special auctions held to benefit charity.  And the best part is that SyFy also makes it possible for viewers to take part in auctions.  This includes unique items from fan favorites Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Warehouse 13, as well as trip packages for Comic Con with VIP access, and an all-expense paid weekend with the Ghost Hunters.  You can also get your hands on scripts signed by the cast of Stargate Universe or Warehouse 13. Or how about the purple dress worn by Alessandra Torresani on Caprica?  These and many other items are now up for grabs to the highest bidder.

Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files – Ghost Hunters Meets Mythbusters!

FACT OR FAKED: PARANORMAL FILES -- "Los Angeles Situation Room" -- Pictured: -- Photo by: Jaimie Trueblood/Syfy

Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files [Syfy, Thursdays, 10/9C] is just what the world needs – another reality series based around the investigation of paranormal events. That the show is little more than a fusion of Ghost Hunters and Mythbusters is not a point in its favor. Fortunately, the series’ first season is only six episodes long.

TELEVISION: Ghost Hunters: The Haunted Former Funeral Home!

Ghost Hunters [Sci Fi, Wednesdays, 9/8C] returns with a genuinely unusual investigation. Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, and their team, TAPS [The Atlantic Paranormal Society, pictured], are asked to investigate Buffalo’s Iron Island Museum [so-called because it’s part of the neighborhood that surrounded on all sides by railroad tracks]. The museum was originally a church, and then for a number of years, it was a funeral home.

The TAPS Team

Employees and visitors to the museum have reported hearing banging noises, seeing apparitions and – in the case of employees – finding locked doors unlocked. One museum employee suspects that the ghost of a young boy named Jimmy is a part of the haunting.

Once the team sets up their cameras and other equipment, they then search through the building for unusual occurrences. And there are unusual occurrences! Even the team’s newest member, Kris Williams, sees something. It’s her first such experience, so even while there’s stuff going on, the rest of the team is happy for her – and she is just thrilled, herself!

One of the things that makes Ghost Hunters work is that the guys aren’t deadly serious. Their sense of humor is infectious and helps keep the team relaxed and alert. In this case, when one member of the team hasn’t seen or heard anything, they give him permission to be, shall we say, less than polite? Another thing that adds to the show’s atmosphere is the manner in which some segments are shot in grainy black & white, evoking The Blair Witch. Between the humor and the suspense, the show certainly manages to enthral.

Iron Island is a good episode for opening the new season. There’s audio and video evidence that makes one’s spine tingle just a bit, and the team is still having fun checking for things that go bump in the night.

Final Grade: B
