‘Ghosted’ is American supernatural comedy fantasy TV series, created by Tom Gormican. The show airs on Fox and first premiered on October 1, 2017. The supernatural sitcom series is based on two opposite minded people recruited to investigate paranormal activities in Los Angeles: Leroy Wright, who is a Detective and a non-believer of paranormal activities, is pitted against Max Jennifer, who is a firm believer of paranormal happenings, to investigate unusual events occurring in Los Angeles.
There have been plenty of shows investigating paranormal activities, not to mention films. Some of these try and prove that there are ghosts, while others try to disprove it. They try and rely on science, and often exude a spooky feeling that there is something unknown out there, lurking in the shadows.
While most of these shows are shot as non-fiction series, there are fictionalized accounts as well, most notably, ‘The X-Files‘. Anyhow, these shows all aim at raising our interest in a question that we have asked ourselves time and again – if the supernatural truly exists. If it does, it goes to a deeper existential question of humanity about life after death. Although the premise of supernatural shows might be philosophically serious, you do not have to worry about all that with ‘Ghosted’, which puts a funny spin on things. It has thus, managed to draw quite a large fan base. Critics too have lauded the series, saying, “Craig Robinson and Adam Scott’s odd-couple chemistry is strong enough to carry Ghosted through a first season that finds the show a promising work in progress.”
