  • My favorite episodes are always the children ones.

    My favorite episodes are always the ones involving children. I find them the most moving and tearjerking. I found this particular ghost story very special and moving. It was exceptionally well done. The whole wishing well idea was very true and moving because it wasn't some far fetched idea, but something that is very true and close to everyone's heart, especially while growing up and believing your wishes will come true. However, I do not like this Sam/Jim plot at all. I feel that while it is well done, it is all a little too far fetched for me. I really don't like that everyone sees jim, but its jim, but its sam, its all too confusing and one of the reasons i watched the show was for melinda and jim's perfect, loving relationship toward each other, and now that its gone, i feel that the show has begun to go south. I know most of you will disagree, but I just felt like it had to be said.moreless
  • I love this episode. The Sam/Jim switch was a a little confusing, but the ghost story was great. The ending was sweet. The little girl fell into the well. The man who had thought that he lost his baby found her.moreless

    David Conrad showed a different side. He is expanding his acting chops. It is good to know that he can be versatile. Now Melinda has to do the supportive role. It is nice to see Delia be supportive, too. The well can grant wishes afterall. That was a surprise. I cannot believe that Sam also have a loved one. I wonder who his fiancee to be was. JLH can always do drama. It is amazing how easy it is for her to cry. What happened to Nate? I actually like Eli's role in this episode. He had something important to do.moreless
  • Are they really serious?

    I was not going to write a review but this episode was pure ludicrous and makes me wonder has Ghost Whisperer also gone down the drain with corruptive television? First the lines are horrible, the acting is awkward and stoic between the Sam/ David and Melinda scenes, way overacting to the point where its ridiculous and annoying. Then butchering and the showing of dead animal and animal body parts is becoming frighteningly common on TV now a days. Yes, America needs to wake up and see they are literally eating dead animal body parts, but showing it so nonchalantly won't do that, it was just desensitized humans to eat. We of a society has become so desensitized to to abuse, hate, that's its translating to our TV shows and becoming accepted into the mainstream. GW has had this attitude before, but not to this extreme, when will show writers/producers start thinking for themselves and not go with the mainstream media? GW better get their act together in the upcoming episodes with better writing, original and better storylines, and not trying to desensitized us to abuse and hate.moreless
  • Melinda helps a girl who died in a well.

    When the show started getting to the actual ghost things got interesting. Channeling the efforts of popular horror film The Ring we had a girl die mysteriously in a well and come back for vengeance. Eli gave us some funny lines along the way too.

    What I didn't like was the same Melinda/Sam (Jim) interactions we had last week. I really hope that this isn't a season long story arc as I can't take much more of it. Luckily Delia helping Melinda through makes it somewhat manageable but I just really want this to end.

    I did not like the guest appearance by Kyle Howard of My Boys. He's the least entertaining character on that show and he didn't do much to change that notion here.

    Overall another good season 4 episode but not one of the better ones.moreless
  • Jim is still dead, but still in the show!

    In this episode of Ghost Whisperer, the following happens. Melinda deals with the ghost of a little girl who drowned n a wishing well. Melinda calls in Eli for help. They son learn that the house, belonged to a widower and since she died, her son now owns the property. We learn from the son that when he was 18 years old, he made a wish in the well that his then pregnant girlfriend would lose the baby and within a matter of minutes she was attack by a load of bikes and this lead to her losing the baby and they never spoke again. He also tells Eli that when he was younger and first moved in the house he would find broken doll parts by the well. So one day he left a new doll there for the little girl and she come and took it. When the well is drained they discover the bones of the little girl at the bottom. She had been missing for over 12 years. The little girl soon tells Melinda that her brother killed her. The brother admits to Melinda that when he and his sisters were younger he cut up all of her dolls. He pretended that he had cut his arm off and she ran off and was never seen from again. She fell into the well, when she went to take back the wish she had made about him. We soon learn from the ghost that his girlfriend didn't lose the baby; she had her and just never told him. We see them meeting up at the end of the episode, and he gets to meet his daughter. The little girl then tells Melinda that Sam/Jim wished for a piece of his life back. She then crosses over into the light. At the very end of the episode, after Sam/Jim goes to his safety deposit box, he finds a ring, which he bought less than a month before the accident; the question now is who did he buy it for?moreless
