Feel Good meets Suspense/Mystery

The way this show was done is so fascinating, there are several oddball concepts - even for a ghost based show - but that's more so in the later seasons. Some of the backstories of the ghosts are very sad and/or more mature than others so keep that in mind. In the first couple of seasons its honestly pretty light hearted 80% of the time excluding a few scenes, in the later seasons however while it's still lovey dovey at times, there is much more violence and scary images/concepts. Things to keep in mind: deals with bullying, abuse, death obviously, major/minor violent events, attempted suicide/murder, assisted suicide, mild gore, reincarnation, a fortune telling book, homosexuality, cancer, comas, other illnesses/diseases, close calls and mild craziness

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
