Why does it always take longer for the Dead Files to show up on Amazon? I don't have cable, and buy the seasons (or volumes as they call them). Other shows are out there the next day.
Will we have to watch the Dead Files on Discovery + or will the show's old and new episodes continue airing on the regular Travel Channel? Thank you in advance.

I thought the dead files episodes were supposed to be new? At least the info says it is. Already saw the tattoo parlor, and now the one with the blurry man is on again. Have you already run out of first runs? Not nice to try and pass off reruns for new ones.😡
I would like to see The Dead Files revisit Season 1, Episode 2 "The Devil Made Me Do It" at Plan B Restaurant on Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park, NJ, as it might relate to the recent Paul Caneiro murders in Colts Neck, NJ. There is a new restaurant there now where Plan B used to be. Paul Caneiro and his murdered brother owned an extermination business above the restaurant.
If you have yet to watch the Holzers Files Its a MUST 💙
Hope everyone had a wonderful THANKSGIVING ❤ Looking forward to some more great shows from PAINLESS PRODUCTION 💜
If you're really seeking paranormal investigators, paranormal researchers with a great deal of experience, than I'm your ideal candidate. Only problem is that I'm over your age limit in that I used to work out of UCLA's former parapsychology lab from 1969 through 1980. I'm probably the most experienced parapsychologist left on earth right now and my book "Aliens Above, Ghosts Below" website www.barrytaff.net discuss some of my work over the last 2.5 decades.
Hi this is Pop's at Modern Classic Garage ( American Trucks ) ...I wanted to wish each and everyone of you at Painless a TERRIFIC and healthy NEW YEAR...may all your wishes become reality.😎
Wouldn't it be great if Amy and Steve could do shows on tapping into positive energy properties? Her describing the environs and the Leone in the past that contributed to putting the impressions there?
I wasn't going to watch Reasonable Doubt. Im glad I did informative. I hope they investigate more cases in the future.
