Critic Reviews for Ghosts Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Ghosts is sweet, but with a little edge, the special effects unobtrusively done.

Apr 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In making us giggle at the supernatural, Ghosts is very British - a mashup of Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit and Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), not to mention the manifold sillinesses of Hammer horrors

Apr 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Aptly, then, Ghosts felt like television from yesteryear. I mean that as a compliment.

Apr 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's like getting drunk with a group of precociously intelligent sixth-form history students. There's nothing that will cause controversy... The humour is kind, warm and sweet.

Apr 16, 2019 | Full Review…

It is cheerful, comfort-blanket stuff and feels, to me anyway, like meeting up with old (far more successful) friends (my daughter was a Horrible Histories fanatic, I'm pretty much word-perfect on their scripts).

Apr 16, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Made by the people behind Horrible Histories, it's a witless farrago of bad jokes performed badly by bad actors.

Aug 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Ghosts has a very big heart.

May 6, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

As cleverly done as it is joyously silly, Ghosts is a treat, especially if you were a fan of the late, lamented Rentaghost.

Apr 26, 2019 | Full Review…

It's joyously, infectiously silly, yet at the same time whip-smart. It's just the ticket to scare those sadcom blues away.

Apr 23, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I don't know if it's a sign of the times but so many comedies now seem to come with a bleak edge, whereas what we most need, possibly, is silliness and, I'm happy to report, Ghosts is very, very silly indeed.

Audience Reviews for Ghosts: Season 1

  • Oct 05, 2020
    A sad attempt at comedy. Sad because when you look back at British comedy there have been so many funny series and the fact that this is even getting okay reviews shows how far our expectations have fallen. Plodding writing, derivative ideas and either bad delivery or the actors havE been badly directed, I expect the latter as some of the actors are not bad. Of course it's a "balanced" cast so we have to forgive everything else (the only reason I can think of that the Guardian has given it rave reviews)... but actually thirty years ago Red dwarf was certainly "balanced"... but bloody hilarious! Except nobody even thought or worried about such things then, we just knew quality when we saw it and didn't care about skin colour to the same extent. It actually reminds me of the first series of Black Adder... full of unrealised possibilities... but somehow a second series has been made with the same weak writing as the first. Third series? Yes please... same cast new directors and writers... please make it work.

    Not remotely funny at all. Boring, lazy and predictable
  • Sep 05, 2020
    Very funny indeed. And really clever - especially the Lord Byron episode, with a fictional TV crew, actors playing actors, and half the cast unable to interact with the other.
  • Aug 29, 2020
    This is my new favorite show, and I can't wait for the second season to come out. This is wonderfully hilarious, and if you want to laugh non stop I highly recommend watching this one. They capture everything so well. Every actor in this show does an impeccable job.

    Love it. It's not pretending to be something . It's just simply enjoyable.

    Entretenida, bien actuada y muy hilarante.
