Summary: The series follows Kevin Pacalioglu, a medium for hire, who attempts to solve various ghosts' unresolved problems, so that they can move on to a final resting place, occasionally with the help of his best friend and drug dealer, Roofie.


Similar in tone to the late lamented “Pushing Daisies,” “Deadbeat” promotes Tyler Labine from the sidekick role he’s seemingly played in a half-dozen shows — including the cult favorite “Reaper” — to leading man. However familiar, this Hulu original series is also disarmingly funny, conjuring quirky moments as it channels the comedic side of “Ghost.” In this week’s digital showdown, it also happens to tower above “Short Poppies,” a Netflix acquisition from New Zealand that essentially serves as a showcase for “Flight of the Conchords’ ” Rhys Darby, but feels like another mockumentary rehash from the Chris Lilley school of role-playing shtick.
