      Make sure to leave your questions for our Post Mortem episode down below!

      1. Gracie

        If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

      2. Plant

        What would you do on a deserted island? What extra person would you bring?

      3. valsol

        shane which part of little women (the movie) did u start crying at this is important

      4. Grace Linnea

        Which rap song would you rather use against the water sprites, Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice or Fancy by Iggy Azalea?

      5. Yazmine Yacub

        whenever i need to do scottish accents i just always say it how i think shrek would say it and i think you guys should try it too!!

    2. Eddie Cherry Cola

      Oh no, not my favorite wikipedia hole, Rogue Waves. I knew i recognized this story.

    3. padraig regan

      Then rap battling is the best bit

    4. J C

      Joseph and that sick guy must've been pretty happy

    5. Salty Balony


    6. Randi

      I think the boys are finally losing it

    7. Denis Rivera

      this is a repeat I remember you guys doing this one already

    8. Aditya Wardhana

      22:30 they should cut these scene and redo it

    9. Deena Lowery


    10. Heyyy name

      Watching them butcher Scottish names and accents is all I needed in life

    11. Stealingyoursoda

      My theory is mothman did it

    12. Extsy

      I believe one of the men went crazy, took the rope tied up two of them, and there then in the ocean. Then proceeded to kill himself agter

    13. PaChukoNight

      This is the only reason I subscribed to this channel because of this two lol

    14. Pattie Davis

      YAY! you guys are back ☺☺☺☺ Really missed you two.

    15. ZOMLUVER

      The ghouls are back in town.

    16. Tristan Gilliss

      They probably killed a seabird - 'tis bad luck to kill a sea bird

    17. lou


    18. Vito C

      So... there was a guy who was literally paid to be The Watcher but he failed at his one job

    19. syd foster

      for .goul boys: i am so high thanku i love you, never seen a ghost but am one apparently

    20. BadChizzle

      You guys have got to go to that island and walk around saying funny close friend things at night... and toting mucho ghost and alien hunting electronic devices. But... please do not take that spirit box thing that goes from one radio station to another, As You two can’t control your audio well enough for that one. 😬🤦🏻‍♂️ Big fan of the show! Thanks for the fun, guys!!

    21. Lydia Leon

      why did i actually cry tears of joy

    22. Jailan P

      I need a "Buzzfeed Solved" where they cover Solved cases but treat them like theyre unsolved and at the end they go "leaves this case.....actually its been solved we were shitting with you the whole time"

    23. Ned Dibber

      This should have been in paranormal

    24. David Gencher

      For your boys’ next case you should do any episode on the theory the Kurt Cobain was murder on the orders of Courtney Love, rather than a suicide

    25. Natalie Arch

      shane is acting... odd in the beginning. like he's just acting really out of character? idk is it just me

    26. Ali Hunt

      Would love to see one on the loch ness monster

    27. Aaron Wicklam

      This sounds a lot like the game Dark Falls 2 - Lights out. It is a game where a man Benjamin Parker is sent to a remote lighthouse to search for three missing lighthouse keepers. The game is set in 1912 off the coast of Cornwall.

    28. Howard Marner

      They drowned. I solved it.

    29. Mark Bondurant

      Hallucinating food poisoning.

    30. Harrison Maurer

      It's the movie The Lighthouse

    31. um chile anyway so


    32. HandMade By Holly

      The simplest answer is most often the correct one

    33. Sakine

      "I sure do like my big tall light, And I don't like you, sir. Get out of my sight!" There, I fix it Shane.

    34. Cayley Robinson

      #roastmortem shane is TRASH at freestyling

    35. Veteran Decanus

      If only Eminem was on that island with them. They would be here today.

    36. Joe Hudson

      There’s this secret hope in me that it was a sprite because having a rap battle with one of those is one of the funniest things i can think of

    37. Matheus Carvalho

      Go to Watcher to watch more of the bois

    38. FlamingHeartComics

      i think the boys had a stroke during the scottish accent bit

    39. Vega Kane

      damn did they get paid off by al roker since the illuminati episode? lol

    40. Win.

      Post Mortem: has Shane ever farted while filming? If so, Please make a bloopers/compilation of it.

      "Doldrums. Doldrums. Eviler than the Devil. Boredom makes men to villains, and the water goes quick, lad, vanished." - Thomas Wake

    85. Angela Privette

      I want the old Shane back!!!! This one doesn't voice his opinion enough!!!

    86. Kelly

      I want to believe they fell in love and ran away together

    87. Silver Arrow

      My theory: faeries. They probably turned the keepers into sheep

    88. Andrew._.2k3

      I missed them

    89. Paige Jasmine

      Oooh. I’m so happy this series is back!

    90. TacticalS


    91. Kaidan Anderson

      well we know whod lose at a rap battle xdddddddd

    92. LunicornArt

      They all accidentally fell into the sea and drowned, case closed. The sea is hecking dangerous and the bodies of people who drown often never show up. The fact they were never found is not even remotely close to solid evidence. Their levels of experience etc. don't really matter in a case of emergency. Read up on some old sailor stories...countless experienced sea-faring people have met their end like that. Maybe one guy fell into the ocean and the others tried to save him. Them drowing doesn't even require a proper storm. The winds and waves can change in a heartbeat. Not to mention the currents in the water... ...but sure...aliens or kelpies...

    93. save norman from TPN live


    94. Brooke Creelman

      I’m Scottish and don’t do an accent that’s only used when someone speaks Gallic and no one does any more but to say light house say it how you pronounce these words lite hoose!

      1. Brooke Creelman

        Just to help but one day come visit Scotland once this is over cause there is many stories to tell over here and you’ll pick up on Scottish slang just once again don’t try to do an accent if you visit Scottish people are proud and that will annoy them sooo much!!!

    95. DIO

      Ryan and Shane are back? Yay

    96. Giulia Skaf

      Could you guys do a video on the Julie Vega case?

    97. Samantha Rose

      As an Oceanography TA.... The waves washing them away is the most likely option in my view. The island, rocky irish coast, short continental shelf, the weather pattern at that time of year..... Points to this

    98. TheCharmingCthulhu

      Like the last theory. Add a dash of Lovecraft and I'm satisfied

    99. J Russ

      Alien Abduction!

    100. mikin lirou

      I hope someone will get a scuba diver or submarine to go look for skeletons around the island because this thing would’ve been solved way quicker if someone took action
