      Season 1 – Ghosts

      2021 Comedy TRAILER for Ghosts: Season 1 Trailer - 3 Steps to a Successful Haunting List
      93% 27 Reviews Tomatometer 80% 250+ Ratings Audience Score Samantha, a cheerful freelance journalist, and Jay, an up-and-coming chef from the city, throw both caution and money to the wind when they decide to convert a huge run-down country estate they inherited into a bed and breakfast -- only to find it's inhabited by the many spirits of deceased residents. The departed souls are a close-knit, eclectic group that includes a saucy Prohibition-era lounge singer, a pompous 1700's Militiaman, a '60s hippie fond of hallucinogens and an overly upbeat '80s scout troop leader. If the spirits were anxious about the commotion a renovation and B&B will create in their home, it's nothing compared to when they realize Samantha is the first live person who can see and hear them.

      Previous Anita Singh Daily Telegraph (UK) It’s an appealing set-up, but after the first episode things go a bit flat. 3/5 Nov 21, 2022 Full Review Kelly Lawler USA Today A surprisingly chipper comedy about being dead... Sep 30, 2022 Full Review Allison Keene Paste Magazine The charming CBS series is not quite as cozy as the UK’s version, and features a few unfortunate hallmarks of American sitcom formatting that can feel heavy-handed, but when it hits, it really hits. Mar 22, 2022 Full Review Rick Bentley KGET-TV (Bakersfield, CA) The series starts with a solid center because of the work by McIver. It gets better with each of the spirited characters who bring a different kind of humor to each episode. A Aug 9, 2023 Full Review Christopher Stevens Daily Mail (UK) The subtlety of the original suffers, but this is still a promising comedy for the whole family. 4/5 Nov 22, 2022 Full Review Carla Monfort Espinof It isn't revolutionary and could be a little bolder, but it succeeds as a "happy place," leaving you satisfied. [Full review in Spanish] 3.5/5 Oct 3, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews Next

      Previous James V Very hard to watch this horribly acted reboot of a British masterpiece Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/24 Full Review Ashley C The BBC version is so much better. The acting is so cringey on this version. The character development is lacking and all of the writing couldn't be more cheesy. I'm appalled they couldn't do better. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/16/24 Full Review Nathan N One of my favorite broadcast TV Shows on TV right now. I love the characters development both the Alive and the Dead ones. Well written, very entertaining, and funny. Also, if you like the show the British version is very good as well. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/23/23 Full Review Cellomomma B An interesting premise. I enjoyed while I was sick on the couch. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/10/23 Full Review David W An excellent reworking of the formula for American audiences. After a slightly shaky start the cast grow well into their parts and do a fine job with the new characters. Thor especially improves and becomes a fine addition. It's all very enjoyable. Almost as likeable as the excellent UK version, which is high praise indeed. Very much looking forward to seeing future series, especially as the UK version has now sadly ended. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review K F love the original BBC show. This American one is really awful. The acting is atrocious, all the actors sound as if they are in a kids Saturday afternoon special. It is over-acted and under-written. The lead character has to be able to carry the show with some acting chops and charisma... feels like she just walked off a B-list off-broadway musical.
