The team consists of:

  • Riley, The Leader.
  • KC, the Case Manager
  • Zack, the Tech Manager
  • Sam, the Webmaster, and...
  • Jackie, the Researcher

This show provides examples of:

  • Agent Mulder: KC is always ready to declare evidence as credible.
  • Agent Scully: Contrasting with KC, Riley is the skeptic of the group, always trying to think of a logical explanation for any of their findings.
  • Creepy Children Singing: At the Queen Mary, when the team are looking over their evidence, they hear the ghost of murdered little girl Jackie, singing in one of their recorders.
  • Extra-Long Episode: The "Camp Gilmore" and "Alcatraz" episodes are 44 minutes minutes, as opposed to 22.
  • Foil: KC is this to Riley; while the latter tries to provide logical explanations for evidence, the former is quick to see it as supernatural.
  • Let's Split Up, Gang!: In pretty much very episode, they would split up to cover the whole area at once.

  • Lighter and Softer: To an extent; it's essentially Ghost Hunters with a children-oriented audience. But that doesn't make investigations less unsettling.
