From Wikipedia The series has often been controversial in its portrayal of events with little scientific skepticism about whether events actually happened as re-created. Critics have also charged that several psychics have exaggerated or fantasized events or claims that did not actually occur. Viewers are encouraged to expand their search about specific psychics profiled for a broader range of information. There is no evidence that any psychic detective has ever provided significant assistance in a criminal State Police case using paranormal abilities. Generally fewer psychics are now involved with law enforcement agencies than in the past as historical data has confirmed that psychic involvement has not improved the resolution of criminal and missing person cases. August 2007 Psychic Detectives was awarded The Truly Terrible Television (TTTV) Award for peddling pseudoscience and superstition to its audience by the Independent Investigative Group IIG.
