Show Summary

Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) is a strong-willed mother of three, a devoted wife who begins to suspect that she can talk to dead people, see the future in her dreams, and read people's thoughts. Fearing for her mental health, she turns to her husband Joe (Jake Weber), an aerospace engineer, for support. Joe slowly comes to believe that what his wife is telling him just might be true. The real challenge is convincing her boss, D.A. Manuel Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) -- and the other doubters in the criminal justice system -- that her psychic abilities can give them the upper hand when it comes to solving violent and horrific crimes whose mysteries often reside with those who live beyond the grave. Sofia Vassilieva and Maria Lark also star as Ariel and Bridgette, the eldest two DuBois children. David Cubitt stars as Detective Lee Scanlon, who Allison often works with on cases. As Allison and Joe's daughters continue to grow, their psychic abilities show more and more development, keeping the DuBois' home life busy and interesting. Through it all, Joe and Allison continue to balance their hectic home life with their professional lives -- which seem to become more and more stressful as time goes on.moreless

    • Tina di Joseph is more wooden than Pinocchio

      I checked her acting history on IMDB and what a surprise she hasn't had any more work after Medium. I also discovered she's married to one of the show's writers so that explains how she got the job but not why they kept her. I cringe when she's on screen at how bad she is.
    • great show

      i just finished watching medium it very good and thank to netflix
    • Great show, the real Alison ruined it.

      I really loved this show too. The real Alison DuBois showed up as a guest on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and proceeded to get totally drunk, brag about her abilities, and generally make an a** out of herself. Medium was cancelled shortly after. If they had based the show on her without using her families actual names I think it would have been okay. Check out the RHBH episode , its cringe worthy for sure. Its hard to believe she's really psychic after watching that.moreless
    • miss miss miss this show

      i don't like much on tv... loved this show. miss it still. i love the plots, twists and family members. I miss this show else like it.
    • I like the family life shown in Medium

      I acknowledge that some of the episodes were a little hokey but I enjoyed watching the family life portrayed in Medium. I read some of the reviews describing Patricia Arquette's Allison as wooden, whiny and tiresome. I think she does a good job with her character. One person said she was a 'know it If you can see into the future and talk to dead people maybe you would come off as a smarty pants, but that comes with the territory. Someone complained because there were so many scenes of them in the bedroom in their PJ's. That's the way life can be sometimes when both partners work and they have three children to care for. Sometimes it seems like you no sooner get home from work, eat and clean up that's it's time to get the kids ready for bed and put on your own PJs and go to bed. Most times Allison and Joe kept talking to each other even through the tough times. I think the scenes with the kids were funny and true-to-life. I thought it was difficult for Joe to play Mr. Mom while Allison was out at night being a psychic crime dog but in reality many of us work long and inconvenient hours while our spouse may not. It's life and I think the show Medium portrayed it well.moreless
