Ghost Hunters: Ghost Hunters Live Halloween Event 2008

TAPS re-visits Fort Delaware to conduct a live investigation of this former Civil War post and prisoner camp for this year's Halloween special. The special aired live and for a total of seven-hours. Their previous investigation yielded startling results, including the clearest EVPs they've ever recorded.

TAPS is joined by ECW superstar wrestler Mike 'The Miz' Mizanin, and by Stargate SG1 and Sanctuary star Amanda Tapping, who will be accompanying TAPS and helping the team investigate the fort. TAPS is also accompanied by team members from the Ghost Hunters International: Dustin Pari and Robb Demarest.

Josh Gates, of SciFi's Destination Truth, and actor Steve Valentine, of SciFi's upcoming show "Estate Of Panic", guest hosts for the event.

Episode Quotes
(Note all EVPs are based on what either TAPS and/or the respective people associated to the case have understood after listing to the EVPs in question.)

EVP #1 (Deep male voice): You're not supposed to be here.

Grant: (To Jason.) You look like a Ghostbuster.

Jason: Apparently we're having technical issues with this phone call.

Steve: We're playing cornhole.

Joe Chin: Do something! Throw a rock at us!

Joe Chin: Now I'm going to laugh. HAHAHA!

Josh Gates: Unless Barack Obama buys out the next half hour on the SciFi channel, we'll be back.

Grant: Wouldn't it be freaky if the bat said hello?



Episode Goofs
Technical and Broadcasting errors.

Since this episode aired live, and from a remote island, the entire special was broadcasted via wireless uplink transmissions, and thus prone to several glitches, false feeds, and audio & visual signal loses. This was the case during most of the airing.



Cultural References
Grant: You look like a Ghostbuster.

Ghost Busters is a classic 1984 fantasy-comedy film about three eccentric New York City parapsychologists-turned-ghost exterminators

Josh Gates: Unless Barack Obama buys out the next half hour on the SciFi channel, we'll be back.

Senator Barack Obama had bought airtime time on several networks two days earlier before the airing of the special, as a political infomercial.



Episode References
The episode featured clips from the episode 4x13 Fort Delaware.

Steve's Fears.

Steve tackling his fears was shown several times dunging the live special. First up was his fear of Spiders, later in he special, fear of bats and mice were also shown.
