Seeing Dead People

Psychic Children are the focus of new show that will be premiering on A&E tonight at 10pm ET. The frightened children, in this new series, claim to see dead people around them all the time. Chip Coffee, a medium, and Dr. Lisa Miller, a professor at Columbia University, are brought in to meet with each child and help them to better deal with and understand their "abilities".

Tonight's show is about an 8 year old girl named Faith who sees the ghost of a boy she calls Freddie and another child who believes that she can sense with people are going to die.

I think that this show is going to be a hit with people who like shows with a paranormal theme. It could also help others who are dealing with similar situations, and fear ridicule by those around them.

My hope is that producers lay off the cheesy sound and light effects, which seem to be popular with these types of shows.

I saw the commercials advertising this show, but I don't know if I am going to watch or not. It's definitely going to be a one of a kind show that's for sure.

Thanks for sharing.

It wasn't bad. There were those cheesy sound effects, but that was expected. I like Chip and the work that he does. I think that it is important to rule out imagination play and other possibilities with a more rational explanation. That said. I do believe that children are more open to seeing ghosts/spirits and that these children were genuine. I like that they tested their claims.
