  • i love how mel & jim are willing to support each other..

    9.7
    this episode has the usual ghost whisperer formula.. melinda met a spirit, she finds the spirit's loved ones, then she will give them closure, so the spirit will finally go into the light.. but the way that the ghost only appear in photographs was somewhat unusual...



    what i loved the most was the issues discussed by mel & jim.. i was really shocked with jim's decision on being a doctor.. the scene where mel said that she'll be with jim was so sweet... i hope there will be more scenes like that..



    i hope the writers are planning something really good... i hope it will make the ratings higher, so gw won't be cancelled.. :)moreless

    I loved this episode especialy since there were lots of Jim and Mel moments that was good. It's kinda funny cause we all thought Jim wasn't going to be in this episode much and he was in most of the scenes. I was SOOOOOOOOO happy for Payne especially at the end with the pictures of Claudia and the whole "a picture means a thousand words" thng was so sweet. Heehee now Mel has two professors that she can go see if she needs help lol. OMG I loved how Mel was so supporting with Jim at the end the whole map thing that was sweet i thought it was so sweet how she said that she would support Jim no matter what happened or where he went for his med school. AWWWWWWWW!!!!!!OMG i cannot wait for the next episode yay!!!!!*stoked*moreless
  • Jim and Melinda experience marital difficulties. Ghost appears in pictures and freaks out a professor. Boooooring.

    4.0
    Okay. I asked for difficulties between Mel and Jim. They did what I asked (like they listen to me, right?). I liked their choice of tension. It was a realistic trust-or-not scenario for Jim. Melinda played right into the med school surprise. It all worked out, fine. My beef wasn't with the story line, it's with the acting. Mel played Mel-odrama and Jim was just flat. This episode makes me wonder if my previous assessment of David Conrad was false. I think they could have done something great, here, but instead it was boring. I only liked the scene when Jim challenged the ER doc's assessment of a patient as a heart attack. He couldn't be forceful, but it was obvious he wanted to be. That was the only good acting for Conrad in the episode.



    The ghost was unique in its presentation, but otherwise not terribly interesting. The affair with her student was obvious (although, I liked the revelation, using the individual sheets of photographic paper...that was cool...). The ending was...well...bad. Not mediocre. Not poor. Let's get the mistress together with girlfriend, and everyone will be happy. Nope. That was just bad. They could have cut some of the beginning and used a little more film to make the ending good.



    Yes, I'm happy that the professor is going to get a date. I wonder if his wife will come back and spook him, for it...doubt it, but...it would be interesting...moreless

    I had forgotten that Ghost Whisperer could be good without being scary. This was likened to a first season episode where it was all about closure for the ghost. The haunts weren't even that scary like earlier episode meant more to show the ghost was around than to intimidate. Thankfully Payne has a love interest which will take some of the pressure of the Melinda Payne ship that's going around. Jim's position has been solidified thankfully after some talk of getting rid of him. I still don't agree with the need for a final scene in which Melinda sees herself surrounded by ghost but other than that a solid episode.moreless
  • Payne's love interst won't show up in pictures and it soon becomes apparent to Mel and Co. that she is being haunted by the ghost of ne of her past students. What could this mean?!moreless

    8.0
    Ehh...this episdoe was ok. Part of what made it weaker for me was it was pretty hard to understand what was going on. Still it was susepensful and good as I really can't say anything specifly bad about it. The whole "Oh my gosh she doesn't show up in pictures!" thing kept me guessing and I couldn't figure it out for the life of me! So, that was a strong point.



    Another strong point was the chilling suiside video. Wow, who does that?! It was effective for sure, even if it could tottaly never happen. (we all know cell phones can't work underwater... There's no reception down there! Silly writers!) Just kidding guys! ;)



    Also, Mel and Jim had their first on screen (and probably first ever..) fight! What a surprize! I kinda liked it though as it brought some realness to the show. I have thought for a long time now that their mariage was "too perfect". People have fights, thats just the way it is and keeps thing intresting on tv. Thats not to say that I want Mel and Jim to run off to have affairs, just not get along all the time. And if it helps, I did think the fight was pretty fake...moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: Around the 19th minute of the show (if you include commercial time) You see Melinda in Kevin's room. She goes to the answering machine and listens to the recording then listens to the messages by turning the knob to the right. However the next time you see the answering machine the knob is still in its original position.

    • Goof: It's obvious that there is NO way that the phone or the camera on it, for that matter, could work underwater. And even if it did work, how could the message be sent, seeing how Sophie said she lost her cell phone in the water.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Professor Payne: Just admit it Melinda, tonight I got dumped by a ghost.

    • Melinda: I know you're just trying to protect me. I've been thinking a lot about that dark spirits don't just lurk underground; that they're around me all the time. I just want you to know that that doesn't scare me.
      Jim: How is that reassuring?
      Melinda: Because anger and darkness, that's just the stuff we're supposed to unravel and learn from. And I do that all the time with the spirits, and I'm not afraid because I know that love is stronger. I've seen it.

    • Kevin: Can you tell Sophie I just lost my way without her?

    • Sophie (to Kevin): And I just wanted to mean to you as much as your work did. I loved the way you looked at the world, I just... wandered did you see me?
      Kevin: Sophie, you were in everything that I did and everything that I made, you were a part of it all. (to Melinda) Can you make her understand?
