So with additional ordered episodes and some very positive comments from the President of CBS Entertainment Kelly Kahl about the future of the show, CBS ‘ Rose McIver & Utkarsh Ambudkar-Ghosts in the lead role has had a pretty good run lately. Someone who isn’t? Jay (Ambudkar), who has nothing to do with being kicked out of a “D&D” (the title of the episode) by his city friends, is how Sam (McIver) recruits the ghosts for his own special campaign. Meanwhile, Isaac (Brandon Scott Jones) deals with his feelings and the secret he keeps.
Here’s a look at three previews for this week’s episode, “D&D,” followed by the episode overview and a look back at the show’s official trailer:
Ghosts Season 1 Episode 8 “D&D”: After Jay and his town friends are kicked out of a Dungeons & Dragons campaign, Sam agrees to facilitate a new one between him and the ghosts. Isaac also confronts his feelings for Nigel, a British soldier from whom he hides a huge secret. Directed by Nick Wong and written by John Blickstead & Trey Kollmer.
GHOSTS is a one-camera comedy about Samantha (Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar), a cheerful freelance journalist and aspiring city cook who throw caution and money to the wind when they decide to do a huge rundown Convert the estate they inherited into a bed and breakfast – only to find it is inhabited by the many ghosts of deceased residents who now call it home.
The Departed Souls are a close-knit, eclectic group that includes a cheeky Prohibition-era lounge singer (Danielle Pinnock); a pompous 18th century militiaman (Brandon Scott Jones); a 1960s hippie who loves hallucinogens (Sheila Carrasco); an overly optimistic ’80s scout troop leader (Richie Moriarty); a cod-obsessed Viking explorer from 1009 (Devon Chandler Long); a chic ’90s financial brother (Asher Grodman); a sarcastic and witty 16th century native (Roman Saragossa); and a 19th-century civil society wife and wife of a robber baron who is Samantha’s ancestor (Rebecca Wisocky), to name a few. If the ghosts have been concerned about the excitement a renovation and B&B will cause in their home, it is nothing compared to the fact that Samantha is the first person alive who can see and hear her.
