Most impressed. In the early stages I was all “how can they have the main character do that and then expect us to route for him, methinks I won’t be coming back to this prog”, but by the end I was all “omg, I want to know what happens next, right now!!!!”

btw you’d think at least 1 tv-prog which has ghosts would address the “how can they walk on floors and sit on chairs and recline on sofa, yet when someone tries to touch them they’re met with mist” issue.

Is this an exact copy of the British version?
I've seen it, so watching this would be a bit redundant if thats the case

Ditto here, if it's a total rehash then no need to bother (I forgot about it last night to be honest). Not to mention the guy they have for the main vamp doesn't compare to Mitchell from the UK series in yumminess.

Yes, I said yumminess.

It's not Star Trek and physics. It's a kind of magic...

If you want an explanation, ghosts don't physically sit on a chair. they take the form and shape of what they believe, when they think they're sitting on a chair or walking on a floor. But the chair or floor isn't trying to touch them, like someone trying to touch them deliberately is.

I was the same way. It took a little while to get into the show. At first, I was trying to understand the basics of the relationships between the characters and once you do, you can enjoy a new show. By the end of the episode, I was ready to see next week's episode.

Yeah I know it's not real, but there should at least be some kinda reason why (apparently) one thing is possible but not another.

There you go, there is an explanation. QED.

Or it could be Ghosts are not able to affect / change their surroundings. So walking on floors is fine, but moving things is causing change and thus not possible.

Similarly(ish) during the early stages of the Pilot ep of Serenity (the "them at war" ep not the "train heist" ep) I really didn't like Mal. But as the show progress, and I understood where he was coming from, the ugness turned into a wowness. Of course had the ptb had him kill River then there would have been no coming back from that.

Mehhh it's just so ...... bland compared to the original series, just seems to lack the darkness which is what makes the original series so bloody amazing
