 But how does a car crash cause a beheading?

We don't see the same kinds of injuries we used to see before the use of seatbelts for front seat passengers and shatterproof windshields became commonplace. Beheading, blinding, degloving and other injuries resulting from large glass shards were unfortunately fairly common when the car's unprotected occupant went through the windshield.

I am a late comer to watching this show but have really been enjoying it.  I have heard about the British version before but hadn't gotten around to watching it.  I understand fans of the British one not warming to this (I loved the British Office and took forever to get with the American version) and I do still plan to watch British Ghosts.

However I am finding these characters intriguing and appreciate that different ghosts take the lead at different times.  I already find myself rewatching episodes to look for little moments of dialogue and visuals.  In this episode, Thor getting struck by lightening and watching the ship leave were great to see and the "other Ivar" line made me laugh out loud.

I went streaming only last fall, and although I was intrigued by this I didn’t get a chance to watch weekly. The votes for it in the Primetimer awards made me commit to Paramount+ (for at least a while) so I could stream it. 

It is really hard to hit a funeral pyre!

I am really liking the ensemble cast and the easy nature of the show. I liked Rose’s work on iZombie so I know she will be quite funny and charming here. 
 

I might treat it like I did The Wonder Years and watch an episode or two an evening after work.

I just started to watch this as well.  I wanted to watch it once I saw that it turned out to be a bit of a hit for a new show and it wasn't in the mockumentary format. 

I didn't love the first episode but now that they've gotten past the setup, this has started to gel nicely.

The only thing that throws me is some of the things that the ghosts don't know that I'm pretty sure they would have been exposed to before these two moved in.

The conceit is that until a "living" who could see and communicate with the ghosts moved in, the ghosts' knowledge was limited to the experiences of their own.

But people lived there.  They might not have been able to communicate with the woman who died in the first episode but surely they observed her talking about movies or watching Jeopardy! on her TV?

Maybe. IDK. Too bad we didn't get an exchange between Sam & Jay about how weird it was that the house had never before been wired for cable.

It was Jay who shot it, right?  Maybe he practiced it on a video game.  I’m sure the skills are transferable.
