There are some great TV shows out there to watch. Ghosts is back for a third season, and this is most definitely one to watch with the teens in the house.

The CBS comedy is officially rated TV-14. That suggests that it is suitable for ages 14 and up. Some tweens could enjoy it, but there are some suggestive comments that make it more suitable for teenagers and adults.

While at the heart of it, the series is a comedy, there are a few elements that will be important for teenagers learning more about the world.

Why Ghosts on CBS is perfect for your teenagers

There are some suggestive comments. One of the ghosts died without his pants on. This is a story that is later explained. He seems a bit of a frat bro at first, but there is bigger story to him. Without spoilers, he reminds us not to judge all books by their covers.

This is a series that brings us characters from different time periods. They have been limited to their experiences within one house when they died, which means they don’t really interact with the way the world has changed. Even as newer characters join them in death, they haven’t had the opportunity to understand the way of the world. This actually leads to them learning more as Sam starts to see the ghosts and can interact with them. It’s a wonderful way for them to figure out how everywhere changes, why some sayings haven’t been suitable, and allows them to grow.

We also get a chance to explore empathy for people. We learn more about the times that they grew up in and the experiences they had. This is a chance to understand different cultures. It’s important for teenagers to learn this as they will likely be surrounded by it throughout life. No, it’s not “woke” to have empathy and understanding for other cultures.

This series also touches on death. The ghosts in the series are waiting to be “sucked off.” This means for them to move on to the afterlife. They need to find their peace as ghosts, and the third season premiere touches heavily on that. We see how the ghosts react when it comes to moving on, with some happy, some sad, and some jealous. Teens get a great look at different emotions and how to handle them healthily or not so healthily.
