#27 The Help Me Help Me Ghost [S3E8]

Chris talks about his recent psychic reading with Marla Frees, where she explained that there are frequencies all around us that she can tap into to download info from beyond.

Story 1: Creepy Comics—after a publisher verbally abuses his comic book artist, he discovers his own fate illustrated before his very eyes.

  • Chris thinks he would have heard of this story if it happened. Kyle thinks this “would have heard about it” argument doesn’t fly with Beyond Belief.
  • Tiffany doesn’t know who told this story because both the characters died.
  • The group doesn’t understand why the police would have the deceased’s boss identify the body.
  • Paul Gleason played the mean boss.

Story 2: Louie The Dip—a pickpocket swipes a winning lottery ticket only to discover it has mysteriously vanished.

  • Kyle researches the term dip. Can’t find anything, but assumes it means a pick-pocketer.
  • Kyle then does find the term dip and it does mean pick-pocketer.
  • Everyone thinks this is easily fact. Yes, you could definitely lose a piece of paper.
  • No one understands why the lottery winner went to the bar before cashing his ticket. Just go cash it you idiot I mean come on.

Story 3: The Wailing—when a mystery writer moves into an old house, he soon discovers an eerie wail sounding from the walls.

  • What’s in the safe?! Everyone wanted to know what was in the safe. Turns out, we’ll never know.
  • Jesse points out how horrible the wig on the corpse is.
  • Chris, using the ghostly rules, buys that a traumatic death could cause the spirit to be trapped in the room.
  • Mark Moses from Desperate Housewives and Mad Men is in this segment. No one can play unconscious like Mark Moses.

Story 4: The Landlady—a wicked landlady is haunted by an old tenant.

  • Jesse reminds us that spirits can haunt people in addition to places.
  • The practical effects of a ghost trudging through mud were pretty good.
  • From a ghostly rules vantage point, Chris has an issue: why would a kind tenant spend his afterlife haunting the mean old lady.
  • No one understands what makes this story special, and where’s the evidence?
  • Chris and Jesse reenact the old lady shouting match.

Story 5: Curse—a young girl dabbling in witchcraft puts a hex on her psychologist and then joins a coven… a coven in which the tables are about to get turned.

  • Chris thinks the psychologist put on this whole witch thing as a scam to trick the girl into letting go of being a bad witch.
  • Tiffany thinks it’s so crazy it has to be fiction.

The story results are revealed.

Mark still can’t decide on an intro, and there’s a theme to this episode: Dreams. And Revenge. Umm.

Story 1: The Nightmare—a woman who’s having nightmares of her husband dying, sets into a motion a specific sequence of events.

  • Mark still believes that dreams can predict the future. Jesse thinks it’s more like deja vu.
  • Most don’t believe that a person could stab a bush with shears in such a way that it would impale someone.
  • Tiffany thinks the woman killed the man and came up with this crazy story.
  • Everyone is impressed by how smart and competent they portray the groundskeeper.

Story 2: The Stalker—a widow & daughter are plagued by visions of a horrible ex-boyfriend through the fathers compact.

  • Turns out men don’t know what women’s compacts are.
  • No one understands how a man can be thwarted by shining light in his eyes.

Story 3: The Impossible Car Dream—a boy’s dream of his dream car comes true, but with a twist of vengeance.

  • Tiffany feels this is realistic but doesn’t see how it was told.
  • Jesse points out that it feels like a local news story, but who pieced it all together?
  • The 16 year old son was definitely played by a middle aged man.
  • They point out the weird dream sequence and how repetitive it is.

Story 4: The Dresser—a hot shot decorator takes over the mannequin display, only to discover some may not want him there.

  • The group agrees this is one of the wackiest stories yet.
  • Jesse thinks the man came up with this mannequin story to get out of the job.
  • Can it be too fiction to be fiction (TFTBF)?
  • Somewhat similar to The Twilight Zone episode The After Hours.

Story 5: The Burial—a tale of premature burial in the historical South ends in a shocking discovery.

  • Historical stories tend to be fact.
  • Kyle thinks it sounds like an urban legend for a southern hero.
  • Jesse couldn’t understand a word any of these men were saying.

“Is anyone else turned on by this story?”

Today we review Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction season 2, episode 4. In an attempt to be more casual, Chris botches his intro. It’s revealed that this week’s episode of Beyond Belief has a theme – Friday the 13th! However, the stories do a pretty bad job of connecting anything to this theme and actually give up halfway through. Chris tries to get everyone to share their own Friday the 13th story, but no one has one… except Chris, who ate a whole pepperoni pizza to himself on Friday the 13th. Kyle explains the history of Friday the 13th.
