  • Another great episode! This was well written and loved to see Abigail Spencer on the show.

    This was another great episode of Ghost Whisperer. I really enjoyed seeing Abigail Spencer as Cindy Brown. I was glad that the writers are dealing more with Ned and Delia. I think Melinda is a good role model for Ned. Melinda does need to confide in Delia about her gift because if she does not I think it will affect their relationship. Jim as always is so supportive of Melinda and that makes this show so great. I was shocked at the way Professor Payne's wife treated Melinda but I figured something would have to come up with the Professor/Melinda relationship. I think Professor Payne may have feelings for Melinda but I do not think they should ever get together.moreless
  • I am glad we got to see Ned again and this time hes with some not so nice friends.

    We actually get to see a full flegded skeleton spirit. Though that one looks so like a cartoon but it was really cool cause I thought it was like the angel of death or the devil of death by its cloths. And we got to see an episode where cars are racing. That it really cool cause I love NASCAR. its really cool. And on this show Jim and Ned are my favourite characters so we got to see alot of Ned in this episode and that stupid number kept poping up...190206 or something. it was all over the place. but anyway i really did like this episode and cant wait for the next one!!!moreless
  • Ned is back and with some not so nice friends!

    Ned needs a good role model as he is dealing

    With some friends that really seem on the wrong side

    Of the tracks and that Melinda would be great choice as

    Her car breaks down and a ghost in the form of a skeleton

    Needs her help. Meanwhile the Professor really likes Melinda

    But not his wife and neither I like the wife. But in all, a good show.
  • i loved this episode.

    this is a very good episode. it starts out when melinda is in the car driving home and she is on the phone with jim. she tells him that she is 14 miles til she makes it back home. then all the sudden she sees another sign with a 6 digit number and it freaks her out. next she hangs up and her car starts to stop. when she stops she sees a car approaching, and locks the door and gets out a knife. the car comes right next to her and flashes a flashlight into melindas window. the car pulls up and somebody gets out and melinda is very scared. she then rolls down her window and it is just a woman asking if she needs help. the woman looks under the hood and fixes the problem and gives Melinda directions back to get to Grandview. Melinda sees a ghost infront of her jeep that really scares her. He tells her that somebody is going to die. He also says "The Midnight Circle." So now Melinda has some clues to work with for this spirit. Melinda wants to go back to that area, but this time takes Jim with her. On the way, Melinda see's the girl that helped her get her car running again. They stop their and the woman looks at her car and just says that it was overheated. She asked her if she knows the digits that she saw or if she knew what the midnight circle was. The woman told Melinda that she didnt know what any of it was.moreless
  • An exciting episode

    I thought this was an exciting episode. I really like the ghost in this episode, it was interesting to see a ghost that started out looking like a skeleton, it was origional. I also like all of the Melinda and Jim things in this episode, and what Jim said about the store room was pretty funny. I also like how they had a bunch of Ned scenes, we don't see enough of him. I though Ned was good in this episode, it added a certain something that the show has been missing. And Cindy was a pretty good liar, Ned not so much. I give it two thumbs up!moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The number 190206 that kept appearing in this episode turned out to be the day Gordon died (19/02/06). However US dating convention is that of putting the month number before the day number. Therefore the US dating number for February 19 2006 is 021906 not 190206.
