Ghost Whisperer – All Ghosts Lead to Grandview
** Spoiler Alert this post discusses plot details about the episode that aired in the U.S. on 11/23/07
So I am in the process of catching up on my TV viewing after being away from my DVR for almost a week. I watched Ghost Whisperer last night with a Coca-Cola and a bowl of popcorn. All Ghosts Lead to Grandview, an episode in which Melinda meets a young girl Becca who has the same ability to see ghosts. Read the rest of this entry »
Ghost Whisperer – Bad Blood aired in the US 11/16/07 on NBC
The Ghost Whisperer got even better this week. There was a great Cameo buy Alan Ruck who you will know from his role as Cameron on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. His character Steve Sinclair buys a house that is haunted by two ghosts. These two ghosts were once forbidden lovers who in spite of their lack of conscience and conniving ways were caught.

Ghost Whisperer – Unhappy Medium aired 11/09/07
Unfortunately, due to a mix up in my DVR recorder, I missed the first 15 minutes of this episode. I came in when Melinda was in what appeared to be a book store checking up on Casey (Orlando Jones) the psychic.
A young woman was missing; it was not yet known whether or not she was dead. The celebrity psychic had been brought in to try and locate her. Casey is a psychic only in name. His actual ability is reading people, noticing small details that he uses to derive a lot of information about people kind of like profiling. He figures out what they need to hear and that’s what he tells them. He gives people closure and has used that to turn himself into an author and celebrity. Read the rest of this entry »

Ghost Whisperer airs on Friday
I have decided to start covering another show that I watch, Ghost Whisperer, also known as “look at my boobs”. I enjoy this show, from a story perspective, each week is a little bit different in Melinda’s adventures. The ongoing plot lines are always taking exciting twists, I also can’t say enough about Jay Mohr’s weekly contribution the guy cracks me up, he also does great on sports radio filling in for Jim Rome and is a good columnist as well. Anyway, I say all that to show that the writing is very good, however, the shameless parading of Jennifer Love Hewitt’s figure on a weekly basis is really unnecessary. She does a good job making the character believable through her acting, the righting is good, and there really isn’t a need for all the boob shots and low-cut wardrobe.
This week, Melinda helps a woman who turns out to be a distant relative. One who had the same abilities as her long ago and tried to warn the town about a plague so to speak. She was taken away and though mad and consequently many people died. It turns out that the part of town that suffered the most was literally buried. They built the existing town right on top of it. One of the entrances to this town is through the City Hall records room, which explains the paranormal activities down there. In addition there is an entrance through the basement to Melinda’s shop.
We get a little more of the storyline between Melinda’s father and half-brother. We find out that her father did in fact have another family. We find out at the end of the episode that Melinda’s father and half-brother are working together trying to steer her down a certain path. At this point we are not sure what that path is, but they do have a menacing aura about them and seem to indicate that if she refuses to help them they will do “something”. We will have to wait as this unfolds. I don’t really have an idea at this point where this plot line is going to go, I will offer a prediction anyhow… pregnancy. Somewhere down the line this season I predict a pregnancy of some kind for Melinda and I think that her father and half-brother are here because of that.
