Review of Spirited

60 minutes

Claudia Karvan stars as dentist Suzy Darling, who walks away from a loveless marriage and into an old apartment block that is inhabited by the ghost of a 1980s English rock star Henry Mallet. Although Suzy is the only human able to see Henry, animals such as the resident cat are able to sense his presence.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I normally don't watch "super natural" shows as they are a complete lie and just train uneducated people to "believe" is nonsense, but this show is at least well written and well acted.

The interplay between the uptight anal-retentive Dentist woman and the free wheeling dead rock star is about as good as it could have been.

I recommend watching only the first season, as the second season went off the rails as was largely shat.

Both of the leads do an exceptionnal job, though I think Matt King as the dead rocker should defintely have won some awards for his performance.

The B-Plots are rather weak, and there is a sense that they didn't know what to do with the ex-husband, as his personality changes with nearly every episode. The children serve almost no purpose at all, and the boy can barely act.

Watch it for the odd love affair and forget the rest.
