Ghosts (CBS remake of BBC show) Oct 2021

I watch the original British show and love it. All 3 season are on HBOMax. This remake looks ok. Not liking some changes. But I do LOOOVE Rose McIver from I,Zombie





This is the trailer for the original BBC show.

Premiered tonight. Haven't watched it yet.

Only seen Season 1 of the British version so far but enjoyed it.

Not sure how long it'll remain fresh but I enjoyed it.

Thought it was VERY good. Great to see something different from the normal run of the mill comedies. I do wonder how the concept can last and hold up long term, but I guess the British version has had multiple seasons so maybe it can

I watched and enjoyed several episodes of the original British series and should finish it up. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the American remake of this show. It works, and I hope that the show's budget allows the fairly large cast of ghosts to remain part of the show. This could still be a very fun one and done if CBS gets to air a full 10-12 episodes to give us a fairly fleshed out and complete story arc.

ETA: Also, I am in the same camp as most dudes, I think Rose McIver is gorgeous and I loved her in iZombie, those Netflix Holiday films, and now this show. Glad to have her back on tv on a weekly basis.

Watched the first episode of the BBC version. The CBS show is following the original almost too closely. I'm guessing it's because it's a pilot.

OK, watched the 2 eps. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Still not happy with some of the changes, but I'll live.

The third episode uses a plot point from the first season but unlike the BBC original, it does not become a season long thing. It also manages to start finding its own storyline.

Ghosts is funny enough. I like the format and the writing has shown promise.

I ran across this on Hulu on demand and got hooked on it (the first 3 episodes).

I enjoyed it and it has a few good laughs here and there. Looking forward to the next episode.

Wife and I enjoyed the first episode. Hopefully it becomes the next show we love together, since the sad cancellation of Zoey.

Zoey’s Extraordinary Christmas is filming right now and will debut on Roku’s app this year.
