  • Another in a long line of amazing and memorable episodes!

    This was yet another really sensational episode of Gost Whisperer, and certainly one that I loved to watch! The storyline was quite good, and the 'Holiday Spitrit" was a fitting and approprate title!

    The episode developed really nicely, and I believe that it shaped out really well, with loads of twists and turns throughout the episode! There was a slight hint of predictability in the episode, which was the only downside, but overall, a memorable and amazing episode to watch!

    I would highly recommend this show and this episode. The last few episodes have all been amazing, and this one ins so, too! No exceptiona to the rule/pattern, that's for sure! Keep it up, guys!moreless
  • Jennifer produces this episode, Dee Wallace guests, Christmas theme, broken home message?

    I haven't noticed Jennifer produce anything yet. This episode is done by her. I enjoyed seeing Dee Wallace playing a pleasant woman trying to do the best for her kid here. She looked pretty good. The story was excellent as expected. The Santa situation was pretty neat and unpredictable. The make-up work done on "Santa" was cool to see the comparison from professional dress to being in red. Melinda's husband has a nice surprise for her that fits the spirit of Christmas and the show. I didn't see her tear up on this one which is rare. I don't think I have seen another actress cry as much.moreless
  • Christmas comes to Grandview, ghosts and all!

    Christmas comes to Grandview. Everyone is festive and the Antique shop Melinda and Delia run is buzzing with shoppers including a little boy. Oh, and a ghost that seems to be attached to the little boy! The ghost thinks he is Santa. He makes the young boy's dad get burned by exploding his PDA. Kind of cruel Santa if you ask me. Melinda unravels a family mystery concerning the boy and his parents who are separated. The dad doesn't know if he's the boy's father. What is shaping up to become a sad Christmas is saved by Melinda as she solves the riddle of the family. All's well that ends well.moreless

  • A boy sees a ghost in the bulbs he is hanging on tree.

    This story was so multi faceted. Check it: A fractured family and a ghost attached to a young boy. The father is too busy to notice the son, Grandmother wrings her hands and tries her best, Mother is absent until the end with on ghost who fancies himself Santa. Santa is a bit confused about a letter he has. Melinda helps him sort it out. The show was, check it: the best holiday fare so far this season. One had to feel for the little boy, neglected by his father. This show was worth waiting on. I'm glad that I did.moreless

  • NOTES (3)


    • Melinda: Yes. I am. Don't ask me how. I'm hoping that Santa Claus will give me Rachael Ray for Christmas and then maybe she can handle it.

    • Payne: (looking at his office Christmas tree) Charlie Brown would be proud.

      Charlie Brown is the main character of Peanuts, a comic strip by Charles M. Schulz that later became a Saturday morning cartoon series called Charlie Brown. This reference is most likely to A Charlie Brown Christmas, the first of the Charlie Brown prime time TV specials, this one involving his choice of the littlest, scrawniest Christmas tree.
