Sorry, but this series is a PALE version of the far superior Medium, and the hackneyed see-it-from-a-mile-away melodrama only serves to prove the point. This beats Threshold? OR Joan of Arcadia? How sad.moreless
I returned to the two-part finale to give the series one last try, but the inferior acting and derivative script puts this firmly in my don\'t watch list. I get that some folks must like JLH for some reason. Or that simple minded Christian fundamentalists grasp at ANYTHING that portends to espouse a literal interpretation of their definition of how the afterlife works. Hewitt is certainly attractive ... but her performance here is a notch below daytime soaps. Maybe if I was a teenage girl or a romance-novel-reading housewife I would get it, but nothing rings true for me here. Not the reactions of the supporting/guest casts, not the dialog, not even the basic premise. And the \"surprise\" ending? For gosh sakes, rent M. Night\'s masterpiece \"The Sixth Sense\" ... the same theme and concept, but done right. Or even better, support Medium over on NBC, a truly superior television program in a similar vein.moreless
I have to say that I watched this episode as a rerun during the end of season three and am very sad that I did, because at that time I didn't care about Andrea, Melinda's store partner.
I have been fortunate to be able to watch the entire first season again and go through all the emotions of it. When I first began to watch the episode again, I knew the conclusion and felt as if I should just skip it -- but didn't! I'm glad I did not, this is THE reason to watch this series. It was the best episode as of yet (meaning from season one) and the twist ending where we find out that Andrea is dead is classic and greatly written. The first time I watched the episode, it never hit me that she could be dead and that's great writing and acting and directing. This is one of the truly best episodes of Ghost Whisperer and if this doesn't get you addicted to the series...I have NO idea what will.moreless
This episode was so surprising. It had you wondering whether Melinda had gotten herself into trouble with that guy who worked for the government. He actually turned out to be OK with the fact that she can see the dead.
I was biting my nails so much because of how exciting it is. You want people to be found alive from the plane crash but everytime you are told that there has been no survivers so far, your heart drops. The ending was just breath-taking the way all the spirits were walking towards the light. I felt saddened by the fact that there was a select few which chose to stay with evil mask man. I wanted them to realise that it's better for them where all the others have gone. After that I got such a shock when Andrea's brother wasn't the one who had died but Andrea was the one who had been driving and got hit by the accident. I cried my eyes out when she realised she was dead. It made me cry more when she said it was her brothers birthday and it reminded me how cruel this show may seem, because they took her when it was her brothers birthday. It was such a beautiful episode and one of the best in the first season. The identity has not been properly told of the mask man yet, but I thought he was a very scary character who appeared out of nowhere and gave you a scare. A great episode and I hope that all of them are as good as this one.moreless
Melinda must deal with the results of the plane crash, the investigation into the crash, the spirits who need her help to move on, the victims families who need help moving on and the wide-brimmed hat man. Also, helping a friend see the light.moreless
I cannot say I am a big fan of the show. It is too "Touched By an Angel" with happy endings and such. I absolutely loved this episode because it ended with a completely out of the blue, never saw it coming conclusion. It is only in watching the episode again do you notice the "Sixth Sense" moments, Andrea not actually touching things, her being ignored by the plane crash investigator, etc... She spends the episode interacting only with Melinda, worried that her brother was on the flight, terrified that she has lost him. You never get what has happened until her brother arrives in town and passes her on the street, not seeing her to be consoled by Melinda. It is a sad episode for the character of Melinda because you gotta wonder how painful it is when she can see so much, know so much yet to be unable to help a person who was so close to her, who was her friend.moreless
How many times have we seen a surprise ending in a movie or TV show? Too many to count if you ask me. This day in age when we see a movie, (or TV show) we are almost always expecting a twisting ending, because it happens so often in movies. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE surprise endings. It wasn't until this episode that I really noticed that I haven't had so much fun watching a twisting ending in anything since the sixth sense. There's a sense of "AHH, why didn't I think of that!" after you see this episode. You hit yourself, and wonder how could it be, but it happened, and you end up praising the show for it. They did an absolute amazing job with it, and I was surprised. Like "The Sixth Sense," you can replay the episode, and see Andrea make so many obvious actions that give her away, but your mind watching the first time around, doesn't catch it. That is the work of a talented writer. If you haven't seen this episode, check it out!moreless
