Supernatural/Paranormal

Chesterton wrote in an essay that "Modern people think the supernatural so improbable that they want to see it. I think it so probable that I leave it alone. Spirits are not worth all this fuss; I know that, for I am one myself" ("Skepticism and Spiritualism" Illustrated London News, April 14, 1906).

Here are a lits of TV shows that involve the Paranormal and Supernatural. The shows in bold are the ones that try to pass themselves as non-fiction, non-biases, documentary. As far as I can recall, all the shows listed by channel can still be seen on TV.

I think Chesterton is right. Just look at the number of shows on TV alone.
