...a slight and only sporadically amusing effort that lacks the panache and wit of previous pairings of Pegg and Frost.

Truth Seekers has plenty of small-town British charm to spare as [Nick Frost] travels from one haunted house to another. But the series also quickly reveals itself to be a genuinely creepy bit of horror.

The end result doesn't really break new ground, but is a fun, funny recasting of Mulder and Scully with ramshackle Englishmen.

There are brief moments when it's almost genuinely haunting, but the less you expect, the more you'll be pleased.

Truth Seekers has just enough character and just enough humor and just enough eeriness to be watchable and involving, without any of those elements emerging as entirely satisfying.

A Ghostbusters-like saga with a stale sense of humor, with only a little more creativity when it comes to the actual spooky stuff.
