  • Shadow Boxer...

    "Shadow Boxer" has a mother ghost trying to reunite her husband and son, who is an up-and-coming boxer. One of the reasons you should watch this episode is the famous movie actress Sonia Braga as the mother. She is a strong presence. A cute bit of business has Melinda preparing a meal for father and son, using Braga's recipe for chicken and rice. Problem is, they don't want to be at the same table and end up accusing Melinda of somehow tricking them. Peter Onorati, who some of you may remember from a bunch of past TV shows, plays a somewhat shady promoter looking to take the kid pro when what he really needs is to make it to the Olympics.moreless
  • was not the best

    Although I usually like every episode of ghost whisperer, I didn't really like this one. In fact I think it was my least faorite episode of the season. It's not that it was a bad episode, I just didn't like it. It as different than all of the other episodes and it just didn't catch my attention. Although I have to admit the basic plot was good and the acting wasn't horrible. Once again this was not my favorite episode but I suppose it could have been worse. I truely hope that future episodes will be better. Ghost Whisperer forever!moreless
  • Emotional Episode.

    When Melinda and Jim both find themselves in a boxing gym, Melinda notices a ghost, the mother of one of Jim's friends in the gym. The mother apparently died of cancer and in order to cross over must find out why her husband and son are fighting, and later on to get them to make peace. Melinda finds it hard to convince the son about the whole ghost whispering thing, but the husband is a true believer. As usual, Melinda pulls through for everyone and fixed the whole problem. This episode was too emotional for me. I'd like to watch ghost whisperer to be afraid. Greta episode though.moreless

  • Very sweet despite it being a little imperfect.

    A very great story. It showed the importance of family and why you should keep together with them. I found it funny how suddenly Melinda could cook with the help of the ghost mother of the boxer. I found it charming. The only thing I found wrong with this episode is that I can't believe that the ghost forgot about what she told her husband before her mind truly went. It seemed a very significant thing for her to remember. I just don't believe that she would forget something like that. Despite that it was still touching and wonderful to see. Keep them coming!moreless
