  • So... lots of 10s, huh?

    Come on.

    Really, guys, come on.

    I mean, I can see how this series has an audience. There are juicy bouncy bits all over the place, and the half-baked modern pop supernatural mythology does have a fan base.

    But 10? The climax of the whole episode is a big Deus ex Machina, the final revelation comes from nowhere and characters change sides for no reason whatsoever.

    The main character is so stupid that can't think to text her husband when her cel connection drops, which would have solved the issue. And I was only thinking about that because I couldn't care less about the fate of the kids she was supposed to protect. Maybe because they didn't have any dialogue, but rather a series of statements of their problems which were completely out of character.

    But, hey, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe it's a 10.

    The problem with reader reviews is they're made by fans for fans. How this got 10s and Lost's last few seasons received complaints from fans I honestly can't understand. Let's at least acknowledge care and production values, even if we're in denial about the merits of the product. Let's at least stay around 9.5 instead of claiming the episode is a perfect gem of storytelling. It is not.moreless
  • Loved this episode!

    After waiting THREE weeks for the finale I was trying to remember what happened.

    It didn't take long though. At the start I was confused by the kids but then I started figuring it out! And I think Gabrelle following Delia all that time was to distract Melinda from what she should of been focusing on...obiously!! I can't believe, I mean hey I'm just guessing here but I think Gabrelle is Melinda's brother and what was up with her Dad? Saying "No" when the kids brought her back to life? I thought he would of been happy but I saw it coming, her coming back to life I mean! What would they do with Ghost Whisperer without Melinda?

    I can't wait till next season!moreless
  • I really thought she died!

    I'm really glad the children were able to bring Melinda back to life. I know something special was up with those kids, but to bring people back from death I didn't see coming. That is really awesome. But Melinda saw her father and he told her about an unknown brother of hers. She watches Gabriel, is he really her brother. How did that happen. Is she the good one and he the bad one. Was it to bring balance into the world, Melinda as Gods helper and Gabriel as the devils? This was a well written ending for season two! Loved it!moreless
  • Was about Melinda finding the fith sence...

    Wawh ... the show was amazing. I thought that somthing would happend to Dehlia or Jim but not to Mel.Than kind of shocked me, but good writing. And the drawing that the Children drew.. Thant was kind of cool but freaky... And the message from the mans wife.. that was a litle puzzel but as allways that was figured out. ........I thoght that the show was an exitemennt til the end and I just cant wait ti September 28... Itwill be an exelennt show.. And than we will se wat is going to happend with the ghost's..

    The Underneath ..!
