  • One of Andrea's friends goes missing on a hike...

    Aisha Tyler takes center stage in this episode, "Dead Man's Ridge", as she is suddenly haunted by something unseen that seems ready to drive her to utter madness. The spirit, which flickers in and out, turns out to be that of an old friend from Tyler's days as an ADA in Manhattan, who has taken a terrible fall while mountain climbing. He has something important to tell her as he drifts back and forth between life and death in a hospital ICU. Stephen Tobolowsky, familiar from both TV and movies, plays the surgeon in charge of the dieing guy. He is a hard-headed realist who doesn't want Melinda telling him what to do with his patient. An exciting episode that takes us far away from the Grandview set, if only for a little while. Matt Keeslar is on the scary side as the come-and-go ghost of the hiker.moreless
  • Andrea's Friend Goes Missing During A Hiking Trip And Melinda Is Brought In To Help Find Him.

    Andrea's Friend Dennis Goes Missing During A Hiking Trip And Melinda Is Brought In To Try To Find Him.

    We Finally Find Out The Reason Why Andrea Chose To Live A Simple Life, It's Because She Can Sometimes Feel A Ghost's Presence (We See Evidence Of This In 'Last Execution' When Andrea Feels There's Someone Watching Her)

    Andrea Also Finds Out That Dennis Had A Crush On Her, But Did Not Tell Her.

    Melinda Contacts Dennis's Brother And They Go To Dead Man's Ridge, Hence The Title Of The Episode.

    Turns Out Dennis Wasn't Even Dead, Melinda Could See Him Everytime He Flatlined!! What A Story! I Love It!moreless
  • Andrea-Centric

    We finally find out the true reason on why Andrea decided to live a more simple life outside the D.A.'s office. It is told in the story of a haunting she has received from one of her fellow co-workers. Melinda and Jim hope to get Andrea hope through the situation she is in and also tries to help the ghost cross over.

    I found this story fun to watch because we find out Andrea's past, but there wasn't anything so unique about this episode. I would have actually prefered something more shocking about Andrea's past insted of something so ordinary. Anyway, great episode.moreless
  • Dead people flirt too!

    Well Melinda seems to be a hit with dead people, they are even trying to hit on her now. I thought this was cute and very funny.

    I love that he was not really dead. He was alive but when he flatlined that was when Melinda could see him. Excellent and very well thought of. It was a pitty he couldn't be saved as well. That really would have been something to tell the grandchildren!

    A bit confusing of why he was haunting Andrea after only knowing her for a short time and not seeing her in years. Must have felt Melindas power through Andrea or something.moreless
  • Andrea's Turn.

    I liked this episode because it featured on Andrea a bit more and it we got a slight peak into her past life.

    Some guy who had a crush on Andrea seeks her out to help his trap brother up in the mountains.

    I really thought Dennis should've lived.......Andrea needs a fling in her life.

    Overall, a decent episode.
