  • This was a wonderfully written episode.

    This episode was so moving, seeing a childs death and the effects it can have on both the spirit and the family members left behind was heart wrenching truly I was in tears by the end of it. I also enjoyed the way that this episode introduces Delia as the possible new best friend, not neccesairly to replace Angela but to give Melinda someone new to confide in and I don't think it will be that long before she shares her supernatural secret with Delia. I mean hiding something like that from someone close has gotta be very hard work.moreless

  • More of a stage setting episode for the new characters.

    I can\'t say that I totally loved this episode. But it was interesting and it\'s serving the purpose of setting up the new characters to the show. Which is great, let us the audience get to know Delia and Professor Noodles. The actor that played the father of the little girl usually plays bad guys or I should say I\'ve seen him in more bad guy roles than sweetheart roles. I thought for sure Delia was gonna catch on to Melinda with first getting caught in that house with the ghosts brother, then asking to use the house so that the former residence could say good by to the little girl.

    The little girl did definitely tug at my heart strings. No question about that.moreless
  • a six year old ghost needs to have closure with her family before she crosses over.

    a great episode! moving, well-cast and a really moving script. the best of the season so far...This reminded me of shows from last season, which I think were better. It goes for the heart and real emotion. The writing is much better than you would think it would be for this show... it truly is one of the best written shows on t.v. and I think the guest cast was great too, especially the guy who played the father. The little girl also is a real cutie. I can\\\\\\\'t wait until next Friday, definitely one of my favorite shows on t.v. right now....moreless
  • Wow. Another episode to touch the heart

    Such a lovely episode. I don't know how they do it but each time I watch this show I start to cry. Can you imagine how that little girl must feel? Not know that she is dead and waiting for her father to come home? I have to say too. Those kids parents are idiotic jerks even though you forgive them in the end. The mother gets so depressed that she does nothing but sleep and leave the children to fend for themselves and the father cheats on his wife. I'm surprised that these kids aren't screwed up because of their actions. Still Melinda found a way to help everyone to see the error of their ways and to move on forward. Brilliant!moreless
