Ghosts is a charming comedy featuring all-in performers who play things bold and broad, but not so much that they don't leave room for wit and some spot-on one-liners.

The charming CBS series... features a few unfortunate hallmarks of American sitcom formatting that can feel heavy-handed, but when it hits, it really hits.

It's amusing, instantly disposable and carried by McIver and Ambudkar.

I’m not sure where, or how far, a sitcom of this ilk can go once its premise is established, but Ghosts is worth a look-see.
