VIDEO: Rentaghost - Episode 01

Running between 1976 and 1984, this BBC children's series follows Fred Mumford, recently deceased, as he tries to make up for his misspent life by starting his own business, which involves hiring out his fellow ghosts for various tasks (hence the title, Rentaghost). It's pretty high-concept for a kid's show, but it's pulled off well, and became quite a hit in the UK. Complicated licensing issues have kept the complete series from being released on DVD, but in the last few years, Hollywood has kicked around the idea of a big screen reboot, with talk of Ben Stiller or Russell Brand or  in the lead role. Enjoy!
