Eric Idle from MONTY PYTHON stars in American sitcom about a pair of upper class ghosts haunting the middle class family that moves into their old house! It sounds like BEETLEJUICE but it's not. It's NEARLY DEPARTED, and it lasted only six short episodes in 1989.
Was this supernatural sitcom with a low-key catchy as hell theme song... CANCELED TOO SOON? We'll find out in this week's episode, where film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold perform an autopsy on this forgotten sitcom, figure out why it's funny (and why it's not), and decide once and for all if NEARLY DEPARTED is dearly departed.
