I liked Ghost Stories more than I thought I would. The humor is good (despite some jokes that were in bad taste about being mentally handicapped or gay) and some scenes are legitimately spoopy. That being said, I lost interest roughly halfway through. I got tired of the show’s episodic nature. A ghost shows up and is defeated in every episode with nothing ever changing. This made it feel predictable and formulaic. A show having a monster-of-the-week format isn’t inherently a bad thing, but it has to offer an interesting premise, likeable characters, etc. to keep the audience invested that Ghost Stories didn’t have. The show isn’t bad, it’s actually very good, but I felt like I had seen all it had to offer.
