A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show isn't out to convey any specific/overt positive messages; it's mostly concerned with promoting the existence of ghosts and other paranormal activity.
Positive Role Models
There's not much in the way of obvious role model content here. Some of the celebs respect the idea that the dead are communicating with them, while others are just frightened by the experience.
Violence & Scariness
Some stories describe how the deceased were abused during their lifetime. Children's deaths are also sometimes discussed. Some ghosts allegedly throw, push, and/or harm things (including animals). Some of these events are reenacted, but the actual violence is blurred.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series -- in which celebrities describe their personal encounters with the supernatural -- features often-eerie reenactments of the hauntings. Some of the reenactments have violent content too, including distorted images of physical abuse and discussion of potentially upsetting topics like children's deaths. Celebs sometimes use salty language when narrating their stories (words like "hell" are audible, though those like "s--t" and "f--k" are bleeped), too. Bottom line? The show offers plenty of creepy thrills, but younger and/or more sensitive viewers may find it a little too spooky.
Is It Any Good?
This celebrity-themed series differs from other ghostly shows in that it offers viewers the chance to be entertained by people who whave the talent to tell a good ghost story. The stars' fame also makes their stories seem a bit more believable than the average scary tale. Thanks to the show's sometimes over-the-top reenactments, some of the tales come across as theatrical rather than frightening. But viewers who like spooky stories about the paranormal will find the show somewhat amusing.
