I liked it a lot too. Good mix of pathos, laughs, and character story. Wish Pat had given Alison a message for Keith though!

Roll on the Christmas special. :-)

Oh yeah, reading through that thread is... quite the journey to say the least!

Anyway as for this I can't say I absolutely love it but as an ensemble they bounce wonderfully off each other. Farnaby and Wilbond are the standouts for me.

I absolutely love it but disappointing the thread for the first season has been utterly ruined. if you don't like something, register your disinterest freely but don't commandeer the thread over 19 pages. sometimes I wonder what exactly the miserably outspoken naysayers actually enjoy, because there's a lot to like about this show and it's a bit strange when someone claims to not have time to waste on a show that isn't perfect but plenty of time to spend arguing about it online ???????????

I was under the assumption this was universally loved by comedy fans and critics alike, but I'm discovering this is not quite the case. After starting this, I binged all episodes and the entire Yonderland in a week and it's been total joy, sheer brilliance. Similarly bewildering that Yonderland prompted such little interest on here https://www.comedy.co.uk/forums/thread/28972/ - but if you've enjoyed Ghosts enough to make it to Series 2, I really recommend filling your boots with their earlier effort until Series 3 drops.

I don't necessarily subscribe to the prescriptive application and prefer to call a show a series and individual seasons seasons, so a distinction can be made. it's a bit a failure of British English where you can talk about the seventh series of a popular series.

Can't see a problem with that, and don't really understand your reasoning, re seasons and series. We never had seasons in the UK, until the proliferation of American TV series, and all the other aspects of their slovenly language, such as "heads up" and "FYI"

I am an Aphantasian, my mind doesn't remember things like that :)

I seem to have a sort of switch in my brain relating to things I read or things I watch, which says: " that was fiction you only need remember it for about a week".

So after a while the memory goes AWOL, though usually I do remember the outline (sparse details) of the 'Plot'. I did vaguely remember the Christmas Special, of Ghosts 2, but I was thinking that was the year before.
