Did You Know?


The private research laboratory in the series is named "Lambda" and has a Greek letter lambda as its logo. The letter lambda is also the logo of the video game series Half-Life; in that instance it comes from the Lambda Team research group. In both cases, Lambda is responsible for an experiment in high energy physics that unleashed entities from another plane of existence, although everything else about the catastrophes are very different. This is likely to be a deliberate nod by the writers. See more »

A Fun Series with Little Lag!
6 February 2018 | by areneehuntSee all my reviews

Just when I thought the SyFy channel was going under, they found two things that captured me and my heart. First was bringing back Futurama. That's one of my fav shows. Second is Ghost Wars- this is a fantastic show! I binge watched when I found it, the week of Thanksgiving, and once I caught up I was angered that I had to go by the weekly watch. The first episode aired on October 5, 2017, telling of a small town with strange goings on. It's also about a guy named Roman Mercer, who has a special talent, or gift. He sees and talks to ghosts. Something that that's pretty handy, considering he can save lives. But these are no normal ghosts- they're killer!

I think I enjoyed it so much, due to the cast. Kim Coates, Vincent D'Onofrio, Avan Jogia, Kandyse McClure and even Meatloaf! Great acting helped, but the story is what captured me. It's simply one of those bad luck towns, like out of a King novel, that is truly in the wrong location The story is creepy, spooky and without many dead spots. I couldn't help but get hooked- watching seven episodes back to back to back!

From what I understand, the ratings weren't very high, but with some luck, season 2 will make it through! Cheers!
