I watched it last weekend.
I thought it was mildly amusing at times, but never actually funny. And I’ve liked a lot of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s other work (Hot Fuzz is one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen). But, humor is very subjective, so I can’t say it’s objectively unfunny, it just never rose above mildly amusing for me.
There were a few genuinely creepy moments, but I don’t think it was ever really effective as a horror show. I’m also not sure they were really going for that, and I don’t actually like horror anyway, so that was ok with me. (I do like horror-adjacent investigation and action-adventure, which this show wasn’t either, really).
The real problem I had with it is that it seemed kind of fractured and disconnected, almost like there were two different shows stitched together.
In one show, Nick Frost’s character is an avid amateur paranormal investigator. They could have done a lot with him taking himself and his crackpot homemade gadgets overly-seriously, and they did to some extent, but not really that much.
The other show seems to take over once they actually find anything truly supernatural. At that point, Nick Frost seems to playing a different character, a blasé field tech who just kind of stumbles into high strangeness and treats it as just a technical glitch he needs to fix to get the wi-fi working again. I think that actually could also have been a funny premise, if they actually did anything with it.
Instead, we get a supposedly avid paranormalist with a YouTube channel who finds definitive proof of the supernatural - and just fixes the wi-fi and then just kind of forgets about the whole literal ghost-in-the-machine bit, puts the cover back on, and then leaves.
