Critic Reviews for Ghosted: Season 1
Ghosted includes a few halfway decent special effects, but not much else, en route to the inevitable.
The zanier “Ghosted” gets, the better.
Ghosted looks to dabble just enough in X-Files-style darkness to give it some edge in the increasingly crowded comedy landscape. Stack that against the humor and the talent, and it looks to be a winning formula.
It’s funny, it’s bromantic, and it’s just a little bit insane in the best way.
Ghosted, for now, clumsily coasts on the chemistry between its two main stars.
Scott and Robinson have a great chemistry as the “believer” nerd and skeptical sleuth, and their capers have a Beverly Hills Cop energy to them (even accompanied by a Harold Faltermeyer-like score).
Fans of Adam Scott and Craig Robinson, among whose ranks I include myself, will be tickled to see them brought together in Ghosted, a show that puts an engaging twist on the odd-couple comedy, namely, the members of this couple know what they’re doing.
The script is loose, chatty and casual, but it’s the chemistry between Scott and Robinson that seals the deal on the comedy.
Fans of both comedians — and fans of spoofs — will likely find enough to keep them amused with Ghosted.
The jokes are flat (or absent), and the chemistry between the two men is regrettably nonexistent.
