I think as a whole we are all just looking for .. Someone. Not even a new Art Bell but someone who could bring back that respectable aire of mystery to the night. Wells' voice has it... But he needs practice to go for 4 hours.. I'm still going in with high hopes...
True words writen. For myself, I was angry with AB for yet another retirement. At that time I felt he was just being petulant with a dose of real life issues.
I do not pretend to know what motivates AB. I wish I did because I would like to see him back in the chair.
Having been told that noory was a consumate interviewer with cred in the paranormal I begrudgingly gave him a try. I dunno whether I was just using a "sour milk" coping skill or if I realized he sucked early on.
But suck he did/does/will forever as an interviewer of the unexplained.
So I am hesitant to the possibility of a new talent. I am not impressed with Knapp, bright though he is. Ian I would probably love as a neighbor but after about 15 minutes of interview I am not sure who's agenda is being investigated.
I have stumbled upon several voices talking about the paranormal in the last 4 years and frankly the few I did like didn't seem to have any ability for stable/regular programs.
So I am in a funk as to what is going to happen to the viability of quality paranormal investigative type show.
Please, for the love of all that is right in the heavens, Art, develope a show to bury c2c.
