Ghosts (#3.5)
8 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A pretty nice Halloween episode. The beginning with the Frankenstein getting up was already great.

I did like to see Dr. Benton trying to get along with kids. He looked pretty funny when he held the baby, and the scene with him and the trick or treat kids was fun as well.

We are also getting those emotional moments with Carter having to tell the kid that her dad died. Of course to fit the Halloween they also made the story on how the kids know such things. Which is of course bogus yet didn't really disturb the episode.

Doug and Carol on their shift was pretty action full, and we even got to see a small appearance by Kirsten Dunst.
