Popverse's top stories of the day

Ghosts is a whole lot of televised fun, and we are so excited to dig into the third season of this heart-filled sitcom. But what to do in between episode releases (or, gosh, in between season releases)? Well, don't turn off your TV. There's other television just like Ghosts - some that is actually just like Ghosts out there.

Here are our recommendations of shows to watch after watching Ghosts.

Ghosts BBC

This one is obvious. CBS's Ghosts is based off of the highly successful BBC show Ghosts. While the shows share a premise and a plot for the first episode or so, they diverge enough to both be rewarding to watch. So watch both! The characters are all different (other than Pete/Pat who are very much similar) and the plots are quite divergent - so dig in and enjoy.

Pushing Daisies

If you like a quirky warm-hearted, slightly supernatural comedy, Pushing Daises is for you. Pushing Daises follows Ned the pie maker who had the amazing gift of being able to bring people back to life. It comes with a cost, of course. The show has a great tone, amazing design, and a wonderful ensemble cast. Unfortunately, it only has two seasons, but they're certainly great.

If you want a comedy that celebrates genre, found family, and quirky friendship between weird people, give Community a try. Community follows a study group at a community college and the many many antics they get up to. Plus, there's supposed to be a movie coming out too.

Chuck may not be the most obvious rec here, but we think it kind of has the same vibes as Ghost. Mostly that people are more than what they seem, and that relationships change us. As for the plot itself, Chuck follows Zachary Levi's Chuck, a regular IT guy who accidentally downloads the CIA's secrets into his brain. Cue the spy drama/regular guy/guy with a secret life hijinks.

What We Do in the Shadows

If you want even more supernatural in your quirky comedies, What We Do in the Shadows may be a good bet for you. It's vampires and camp and silly humor. In other words, it's a pretty good time.

Ghosts has become a phenomenon in the UK, America, and around the world. With CBS's third season of Ghosts underway, get to know your favorite apparitions with a guide to how the ghosts of Ghosts died, where to watch both Ghosts shows, a guide to the casts of Ghosts, why BBC's Ghosts ended, and learn about the other Ghosts the original show planned but never used.
