The Ghost?
15 April 2015 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Largely whimsical episode is a definite change of pace from the usual serious-minded topics and presentation that this series had specialized at. Here, a budding romance between two unlikely "lovers" - Otto(played by John Beal) & Elsa(played by Vanessa Brown) who are seemingly mismatched, since he is much older than she, though paradoxically less life-experienced. Her parents disapproval is problematic, but not nearly as much as the apparent ghost -or poltergeist- that continuously disrupts any attempts at intimacy! Just what are Otto & Elsa to do, and will their romance have a ghost of a chance? Mediocre entry is at least innocuous.
