First off, in my honest opinion this show has the best title in all of comedy coup. If I saw "Ghost Lawyer" on a channel guide I would have to stop and watch it. That being said am I the only one who thinks a show actually about a ghost lawyer would be better than a show about a guy writing a show about a ghost lawyer? I'm hoping the show would have a lot of clips of the "ghost lawyer" show he's writing appear in it so we get a taste of what it's like.

TIP: It's hard to find good legal representation these days. It's important to look over all the legal facts before signing any documents... Especially when there is only one Ghost Lawyer in town.

    I think the idea is great, there are lots of paranormal type shows out there though. You do have an interesting spin on it with the lawyer add. I enjoyed this week's video, best of luck!

    This show has the bestitle, hands down. Also the best precis you can use to explain the show to your friends, i.e, "Well it's about a lawyer... for GHOSTS". I realyl hope the development team took the day off after they thought of that one.

    You have produced a fair attempt to explain how your show is different from the others in this competition. It's not clear though, what the show is actually going to be about which might have helped with the week 3 mission. But you have done a reasonably funny job here.

    It was a little strange that this video was about the writer and not a lot about the show. It didn’t really get me hooked to watch the show in anyway. I’m sorry but this video could have had a bit more of the plot of the show in it to explain what this would be about and why it’s different.

    I was hoping that the show was actually about Ghost Lawyer and not the writer. Ghost Lawyer is not the worst idea for a show and could be really funny. I hope the writer gig gets dropped and it's just a Lawyer who talks to ghosts!

    Very interesting concept! However I'm wondering what the plot will follow as. Will it be the lawyer simply being followed by a ghost or later will it be follow the ghost view of the story? I'm very curious. Overall, despite it being just a little bit silly and immature, it shows good potential! Love the ghost! busters vibe as well!

    I like the concept of the film. Its everyones worst nightmare to have to direct and out on a show that is so terrible! I thought it was funny and the ending had me laughing for quite awhile. Overall, good film and I actually enjoyed the sheet over the head because it was so ordinarily funny.

    Glad to see one of the creators weighing in to agree with this - Kane's bang on. I'm also wondering what an average episode will be like. Do we see all of the cast and crew involved in "Ghost Lawyer", and do they all hate it too, or is the main character the odd man out? Or is it more about his private life, and if so will we see how what's happening in his life makes its way onto the show in bizarre, Ghost-Lawyerish ways?

    Lots of potential - great job so far!

    I'm enjoying the development of your work. I think the strength of your first two videos was the performances by Jennifer De Lucia so I was a little surprised to not 'see' her in your new video. That said, the ghost dancing around, etc. made me laugh aloud and I'm pretty sure that was her under there. Good luck!

    The concept is great, totally got what you were going for in this video. I love the difference in acting/lighting/overall quality between Jay's world and the crappy Ghost Lawyer world of terrible TV. Do we get to find out WHY this crap show is being pushed through? What happened to Jay for him to have fallen so far? Does Ghost Lawyer have any fans, and if so, do they write fanfiction?
