    I breed and raise burrowing owls for a living. Every night when all the chores on my owl ranch are done, I go inside, flop on the couch, and watch TV. Ghost Whisperer is far and away one of the best shows I watch. This episode was quite good. The writing was superb, and I must admit my burrowing owls got really emotional when Melinda finally was able to help the boys cross over. I would recommend this episode to any lover of the show.moreless

    I loved how Melinda did everything she could in order to help the lost boys. A very heartwarming and emotional episode.
  • Dead animal on boys head!

    Out of character and silly a very horrible Ghost Whisper episode, The Lost Boys. Semi stereotypical and I hated the fact they used a little boy and have him wear a dead animal on his head, horrible! The storyline is semi interesting and the charter of the guy tearing down the building and his connections with the lost boys. Sometimes Ghost Whisperer overdose it and makes it seem not real, I believe in spirts and crossing over but Ghost Whisperer has a lot of unrealistic situations and episodes which i do not like. But why subject a boy and the audience to a dead tortured animal throughout the entire episode? Just sick, sad and horriblemoreless
  • Melinda helps three young boy who died in a fire cross over

    I think this is a rather cute episode about these boys who have die in this tragic fire and their souls are trapped in this orphanage. Its Melinda's job to help this boy cross over before they tear down the building their souls are trapped in. It's a cute storyline and all but I am not feeling this show at all. I am getting more and more disappointed with each episode. I just can't see how people can get hooked on this show. I'm trying to understand this show but if they want more people to watch I think they have to do better.moreless
  • Lost boys...

    "Lost Boys" is exactly what it sounds like: Melinda comes to the aid of a group of little boys, killed in an orphanage fire, who have been waiting for the return of one of their playmates, who may have escaped from the fire. Melinda plays Wendy to their collective Peter Pan. The leader of the group is in fact the Peter Pan surrogate; he has no wish to move on and grow up, as it were. Meanwhile, a developer is intent on tearing down the old structure and replacing it with condos, which will leave the boys with no place to play hide and seek. The resolution contains a great twist, one that few will see coming. Many will recognize Bruce Weitz from "Hill Street Blues" as the developer. This continues a tradition of what I choose to call stunt casting in many of the episodes. They employ an actor or actress who is familiar from the movies or past TV shows.moreless
