Season 2 picked up. Even endorsed by the Jedi Master himself, Luke Skywalker. Well deserved, I hope it lasts a few seasons.

What I loved is that the cast seemed genuinely happy at the news, and were not just playing it up for the camera. Also, Utkarsh Ambudar after seeing Hamill's tweet is awesome, saying he is already cast in season two as any character he chooses.

I follow the show and a few of the actors on IG. This show is building a very loyal fanbase. Was happy to see them renewed.

This is my favorite show this season. I bust up every time I hear “sucked off” and now the new one, “going down on us.” Samantha’s responses to these phrases being spoken are priceless.

Did she see a really nasty looking ghost in the window when they were thinking about moving, or was that the british version? The two are so similar they sort of blend together sometimes.

Hmm, I don't recall. But for some reason that feels more like the BBC show.

The last ep with Hetty's Husband was hilarious.

Yeah, that’s in the BBC one. I never have seen these two as blended, they each have a very different vibe and the living couples are completely different. I would love them to have a few crossover episodes where the couples meet each other.

Re: Ghosts (CBS remake of BBC show) Oct 2021

I've never heard of the BBC show. When I first saw the show in the Paramount+ app, I thought it would be a flop that wouldn't be funny past the first few episodes, but i ended up liking just about all the episodes of the show. Now that the show is somewhat of a hit, I wonder how long they can keep it going and keep the costs down with such a large cast. Some of the ghosts don't appear in every episode, which doesn't really make sense since they can't really go anywhere.

Re: Ghosts (CBS remake of BBC show) Oct 2021

I’m not sure if they do it on the CBS one, but on the BBC show, the main cast also play most of the other ghosts, including the ones in the basement. Cost cutting measure but it’s funny to pick them out. Season 3 of the BBC was shot during Covid, so they nixed all of the storylines where there are other ghosts including the basement ones.

Re: Ghosts (CBS remake of BBC show) Oct 2021

I am actually excited by the promo spots highlighting the next episode, we get to find out why Trevor has no pants. Can't wait. If this was already covered on the BBC series, I have not caught up yet so anything that the CBS series copies or borrows from the BBC version is most likely new to me.

There’s actually a pantsless guy on the BBC show, but his reason is more than likely different than Trevor’s. My wife and I were both excited as well when we saw that it would be finally revealed how he died without his pants on.

This is available to watch free on-demand on Pluto TV but you have to watch commercials.

That's how we've been playing catchup for free as a family, yes.

Re: Ghosts (CBS remake of BBC show) Oct 2021

Just binged about half the episodes the past few nights. Really enjoying it.

I usually don't think much about direction in a comedy show, but it's quite impressive how they juggle the two POVs within the scenes and maintain the quick pace of the dialogue.

Already concerned that the demands of a network schedule will burn this candle out too soon. They've just about already made as many episodes as the entire British run of the show.

Re: Ghosts (CBS remake of BBC show) Oct 2021

This show was calling to me on my Spectrum on demand app and it didn't disappoint, I binged all the aired shows so far over the weekend and really enjoyed it. And I normally don't watch any sitcoms at all. Looking forward to the rest of the season. In the meantime I'm watching the British version on HBO Max and it took a few shows to get used to the slightly different characters and situations (and lower production values) but I'm starting to enjoy it also.

The episode about Trevor's pant was great. They nailed the 80's Business Bros things so well...or it seems like they did.

They'll be fine. They are sprinkling in new special guest one off Ghosts and other Ghosts that come back down the line like the British Ghosts so that adds variety. The next ep has a new House ghost appearing.

now that i think about it...i dont really remember the BBC show bringing in new ghosts. But maybe im wrong..

Great April 14th episode - “Attic Girl”

I like the slow pace with the bed and breakfast portion of the story. Good stories to save for a potential season 2.

They are going to run out of random rooms to find new ghosts soon.

I thought the 80's prom with Stephanie and Sam was really touching. Trevor may be a dude bro, but he won't hook up with Steph.
