After 7 seasons of content going from hilarious to horrific, following the Ghoulboys, Ryan Bergara and Shane Madej as they go around hunting for demons, BuzzFeed Unsolved: Supernatural finally came to an end in November 2021. But that doesn’t mean we will get over the amazing show we’ve been exposed to on this oddly wholesome adventure that was more about the friendship between Ryan and Shane than the demons and ghosts they went hunting for.
Now, as the show has come to an end, we’ve decided to go down memory lane and highlight some of the best episodes from all the seasons. Note that these episodes aren’t ranked in any order, you can just go down this list and decide for yourself which one is your favorite and if you haven’t watched them yet, all the more reason for you to read this blog and prepare yourself.
The Haunted Halls of the Waverly Hills Hospital
In this episode, the Ghoulboys visit the Waverly Hills Sanitorium, an eerie place (an obvious to ghost hunting) opened in 1910 to treat patients with tuberculosis, later expanding to include patients of the TB epidemic in 1926. As with every horror place, this hospital is now an abandoned building, mostly visited by tourists and paranormal investigators to find out whether any of the unfortunate patients or staff members still roam the hallways of the place. It’s one of my personal favorite episodes of BuzzFeed Unsolved Supernatural, as Ryan and Shane go around the place looking for ghosts… and maybe even finding some.
The Captive Spirits of Eastern State Penitentiary
Eastern State Penitentiary is perhaps one of the most horrible-looking places investigated in this show. A location with a history of horrific events that all its inmates had to go through, as with almost every prison in history, the Penitentiary is known to still be echoing the agony of its inmates to this day. As Ryan and Shane visit this place, we get to see some intriguing pieces of evidence that Boogaras (Ryan’s bunch of ghost believers) around the World are scared by, while Shaniacs (Shane’s skeptic bunch of unbelievers) try to explain the logic behind them.
The Unbelievable Horrors of Old City Jail
In this episode, we’re taken to the Old City Jail in Charleston, Carolina, where innocent African-American sailors were locked away if they happened to come through Charleston. This was before the Civil War, after which Confederate soldiers were also locked up in this jail. A place with a history of unjust imprisonment and suffering through an Earthquake, the Old City Jail is certainly a place to visit if you’re looking for ghosts. And that’s what Shane and Ryan did in this episode, perhaps one of the few episodes in the series that promises compelling evidence. Watch it all for yourself.
The Horrors of Pennhurst Asylum
Manufactured in 1903, the Pennhurst State School and Hospital already promises horror, as with any Asylum with a history. The place is currently a Halloween attraction, where tourists and local visitors come to get into the mood of the scary season and try to investigate ghosts on their own. As Ryan and Shane walk through the place with a history of admitting mentally challenged people, we hear about all the horrible things that happened to the unfortunate patients who were once admitted in this place, as we travel along the hallways with the Ghoulboys looking for any evidence that might tell us if those people still reside there one way or another.
The Haunted Shadows of the St. Augustine Lighthouse
A favorite among almost every paranormal investigator, Ryan and Shane visit the St. Augustine Lighthouse, known as one of the most prolific places for paranormal activity. Established in 1565 by Spanish explorer, Pedro Mendez, this place has been through anything and everything that happened in the region from the 1500s to this decade, which speaks for itself in the place’s built and vibe. Join Shane and Ryan on this haunted place in this episode, with a breathtaking view yet a promisingly horrific past and present.
Return to the Demonic Sallie House
In the final episode of the series, the Ghoulboys return to the one place where their ghost hunting adventure began 5 years ago, the Sallie House. Located in Kansas, the house was built during the mid-to-late 1800s, it didn’t exactly have a haunted history in its first 50 years. But this peace came to an end in December 1992, when its then residents were haunted by what they call a Demon named Sallie. This house is perhaps the most iconic place for the Ghoulboys, since this is where their first investigation happened, and it’s also this place where Ryan got even more convinced that ghosts actually are real. This episode is definitely one to watch for diehard fans of the show, or people who will become diehard fans of the show when they start watching it (believe me, you will).
Although these are a few of our favorite episodes from BuzzFeed Unsolved: Supernatural series with Ryan and Shane, we promise there’s so much more to add to the list. And you’ll know that once you start watching the show yourself. One particular episode we have not added to the list, but is certainly worth a watch, is their 70th episode special, where we’re shown deleted footage of Shane actually getting scared by a sound in one of their adventures.
Check that, and the entire show, out as it’s one of the best series when it comes to paranormal investigation, where nothing is exaggerated, and you actually feel calm and enjoy because of the content Shane and Ryan bring to the screen.
