  • A ghost discovers that she was switched at birth.

    Not the most exciting start to a Ghost Whisperer episode but things quickly picked up and we got a really good story here. We found out that former friends were living with the wrong families and it took Dianna's death to realize that.

    This was a pretty emotional episode as it's hard to grasp how one would deal with this if they were in this position. Jamie Kennedy's Eli character gave us some good comic relief to lighten the mood, but overall a fine payoff to a good episode.

    Keep up the good work this season Ghost Whisperer as it's the lone show giving hope to Friday nights.moreless

  • Another amazing episode!

    Ghost Whisperer continues to outperform and excel, with this another amazing episode. This episode was centred around a friend of Ned's who passess away, and then begins to haunt a family that was not her own.

    I loved this episode, because it had many interesting developments. The plot and storyline were very intricate and there was so much detail within the episode. The y had literally covered every single nook and cranny.

    The episode did not build much in terms of suspense, but the ending was really wesweet and I quite enjoyed that, actually!

    This is defintely an episode that I would highly recommend. Such a good plt, and I really loved every minute of it! Keep it up, Ghost Whisperer, as this show is just great!moreless
