SyFy Ghost Mine Review – Gold Rush Bering Sea Gold Rip Off
On January 16th 2012 SyFy Channel debuted its new paranormal reality series Ghost Mine. After watching the show I was amazed out how much creativity the new show lacked and how much it borrowed and pillaged upon other popular Gold Hunting types of shows that are already on other networks such as Discovery Channel.
One of the first ways that it clearly borrows upon other shows is in the introductory scenes. If anybody has seen Bering Sea Gold, which is shown on Discovery Channel and been airing for a year, it starts off with a miner talking about the dangers and thirst for riches that fuels one to search for gold. Well the producers and editors of this series clearly are fans of Bering Sea Gold because they copied their intro and only differed from the script by adding a paranormal twist to it.
Another borrowed trait for another Gold hunting show, called Gold Rush is how they scripted the miners and how they portray them. The show is its 3rd season and the main characters are portrayed as recession strays searching to better there fortunes through finding their riches of gold in Alaska. Now the only thing different between the Gold Rush cast and the Ghost Mine cast is that, the Ghost Mine cast hasn’t found any gold of yet, and has only discovered a couple of class c evps in mine that will hopefully collapse and end the series.
One would think that with a budget that SyFy has for their shows that they would have better things to produce then rehashes of shows that are already out there, but then again it is SyFy.
