    Premise: A young married couple, Alison and Mike, unexpectedly inherit the vast but crumbling Button House. The House is haunted by numerous squabbling ghosts from across the ages that died on its grounds, who are invisible and intangible to the living. Ignoring their solicitor’s advice to sell the property, Alison and Mike decide to move in and renovate it, with the idea of turning the house into a luxury hotel. At first, the ghosts are not very happy with their plans and conspire to get rid of the newcomers. After various failed attempts to scare them, one of the ghosts pushes Alison from an upstairs window. When she awakes two weeks later from an induced coma, she discovers her husband has arranged a huge mortgage, and that she can see the ghosts due to her near-death experience. Because neither she (for financial reasons) nor the ghosts (who are stuck there for eternity) can leave, both sides eventually agree that they have no choice but to coexist as best they can.

    I enjoyed season 3! It wasn’t quite as strong or funny as season 2 and whilst I did appreciate the continuation of the exploration of the ghosts’ backstories I did find some of them a bit uninteresting this timer round but it was still entertaining nonetheless and I thought the risk of incorporating an arc into this season really paid off.

    There’s something so uplifting I feel every time I watch this ensemble.
