Flawed yet terrific
26 April 2011 | by Michael_TakesSee all my reviews

Ignore the flaws - this show is terrific.

Cast is terrific, even if the characters motivations and history are almost non existent. Theo James is brilliant as the main character, a person who not only sees ghosts but how they die. Charlotte salt is also a standout but her character lacks a back story to explain why she is the way she is.

The setting is terrific - an old asylum, renovated as a high level apartment building. Oh, and it is haunted! Each episode is well directed, music is spot on for frights, and the writing is excellent. Each episode delves into the history of the asylum with the lives of the new tenants triggering off the ghosts.

While I am a huge fan of British TV an American season length would enable more character depth. 6 episodes are just not enough!
