Ghosts is a comedy series that aired on CBS in 2021. The show follows the story of Samantha, a young couple (Samantha and her husband) who loves life in the city and decides to buy a haunted country estate. The house, however, comes with supernatural occupants called "ghosts" who died at different times over the last century. Strange things begin happening in the house, and the couple becomes haunted by the ghosts, many of whom are quirky and mischievous.

Samantha, played by Rose McIver, is the show's main character. She works as a freelance writer and is described as ambitious and determined but with a tendency to become scattered and disorganized. She is highly skeptical about the existence of ghosts, but her husband, Jay, played by Utkarsh Ambudkar, is not.

The series features several other characters, but the most notable are the ghosts that inhabit the house. Each of the ghosts has a distinct personality, background, and time period in which they lived. Pat, played by Brandon Scott Jones, is one of the most prominent ghosts on the show. He was a Prohibition-era bootlegger who was killed in a car crash while fleeing the police. Among his fellow ghosts, Pat is seen as something of a leader and often takes charge in their group.

The show's central conflict is based on Samantha and Jay's need to coexist with the ghosts in the house while trying to have a normal life in the city. As they try to find a way to get the ghosts to leave them alone, they find themselves becoming more and more entangled with the lives of the supernatural occupants of the estate. Samantha finds herself becoming friends with the house's nearly century-old resident. Meanwhile, Jay, who is more open-minded and sympathetic to ghosts, finds himself becoming increasingly involved in their world.

Ghosts are not new to TV series but what makes this show so unique is the way the ghosts interact with the living characters. The dead characters are not scary or dramatic; they are funny and sometimes silly. The show is less focused on horror elements and relies more on the interactions between the characters. The living characters try to coexist with the ghosts without letting them know they see them or to avoid any negative outcomes. The ghosts go about their way, not knowing if the living people see them or not, but they always find ways to make themselves noticed.

The series relies heavily on its comedy elements, with each episode filled with plenty of laughs, jokes and funny situations. The humor is always light-hearted, and there is enough variety in the jokes to keep viewers entertained. The show has excellent writing with each episode serving as a stand-alone story. The characters develop well, and there is enough of a plotline to keep viewers interested.

One of the show's major strengths is its diverse cast of characters. The show features people of different ages, colors, and sexualities which adds to the representation aspect of the show. It is a show that includes a lesbian couple, people of different colors who interact in funny and interesting ways, making it a great show for people of all backgrounds to enjoy.

Another thing to love about the show is the way it deals with serious issues without taking away from the overall comedic elements. There are several episodes on issues such as racism, slavery, and the treatment of the LGBTQ+ community in different time periods. The show balances the seriousness of the issues with the humor, making it an excellent way to learn about history and social issues in a light-hearted way.

In conclusion, Ghosts is a great and entertaining show that is both funny and informative. The show is filled with humor while also dealing with deep issues such as racism and slavery. The cast is diverse, and there is enough variety in the jokes to keep viewers hooked. If you're looking for a show that is easy to watch and doesn't take itself too seriously, then Ghosts is a great series to add to your watch list.
