Re: Ghost Wars - SYFY Thursday

I can't tell if this is going to be worth my time.

The series is set in a small Alaskan town. The main character is a guy who sees dead people and he's looked down on because he comes from a family of psychics and everyone thinks he's crazy. The fact that he has a ghost girlfriend and talks to her out in public may have something to do with it.

Apparently the door between this world and the afterlife has closed and there are a bunch of ghosts who are trapped in town who can't move on, who are angry and will attack the living. It's not clear how widespread it is, but looks like it is specific to the town. The ghosts are able to make the living hallucinate and hurt themselves. It looks like they can effect matter as well. Eventually others start seeing these ghosts and start believing Roman, the "Ghost Guy".

Apparently Roman has a superpower that can make a ghost go away when his eyes light up, but the effect looks cheesy. He used it when no one was around, so I'm wondering if he's hiding this power or perhaps he's orchestrating the whole haunting thing. I'm not sure why he only used it once when he could have used it to save some others.

Apparently a single bridge is the only way in and out of town and it is destroyed, so basically everyone in town is trapped. (Helicopters , off-road anyone?)

I'll give a couple more episodes for the writing to improve because there are a lot of holes and cheesy elements. I do like the fact that Vincent D'onofrio is in it as a sort of a biker-priest who will most likely help cast out the ghosts. We'll see where this goes.
