So here's a bit about a pet peeve of mine for a while. CourtTV bills itself as "The Investigation Channel" and purports to be a channel of non-fiction programming. One of these non-fiction programs is Psychic Detectives. It is nothing but fantasy and "The Investigation Channel" does nothing to investigate the absurd claims of these crackpots. It would be wonderful to see CourtTV really take on the mantle of being an investigative channel and pursue the likes of psychic detectives as well as countless other money grubbing crooks out there. Where to begin how about kinesiology for a place to start after debunking the psychic detectives? The really sad part is on the National Geographic channel is Seconds from Disaster which does an excellent job of doing real research into incidents and finding out what happened in those critical seconds (and minutes) before disaster.
