  • was good till the end

    5.0
    First off you can't arrest someone after they got released for the same crime its called double jeopardy. This ruined the whole show and kinda threw out the plausibility. Not to mention the conservative undertone in the show is kinda offensive. I'm of the mindset to still give this show a chance, I am watching it through netflix but at the same time I don't like how this episode almost completely ignores the law. It's unlawful to release someone on a pretense like that than to arrest them for the same crime. Plus the evidence is almost obsolete to even hold him, no DNA, etc.moreless

  • Another great episode of Medium with an amazing performance by guest star Kathy Baker

    8.5
    This episode is about a man convicted of a murder that is now being re-examined by an outside department who question his guilt Allison has already been dreaming about the incarcerated man, but it is in regards to a different murder, one of a four year old girl. Back at the Dubois house, Joe's mother comes to visit which causes a small amount of tension between her and Allison, before long however Allison beings to see there is more to the visit then meets the eye.



    What really made this episode so great was the performance by Kathy Baker (Joe's mother). She was fantastic! I have seen her on other tv shows before and thought she was great but this character fit her so perfectly it was like it was made for her. Sorry if it sound like I'm gushing but another actress may have played the lines so differently and it would not have had the same impact. The scene in the lounge with Allison and Joe was magic.



    Highly recommended episode.moreless
  • An excellent episode from Medium's fantastic first season!

    9.0
    The opening teaser to this episode is probably the most disturbing one yet, as we're given a first person view from the victim's perspective – a man molesting and murdering a four year old girl. Its gripping stuff and the hour seriously brings into question the kind of moral ambiguity shows like Joss Whedon's Dollhouse very rarely taps into (prosecute the guy for a murder he didn't commit for crimes he was never tried for, or uphold justice and fess up to recently required Intel that proves his innocence for the crime he was sentenced for). The subplot also has its moments, and it's refreshing to see a mother-in-law who may be a b****, but she's also a human being, too, and this episode allows us to see both facets of her personality. Loved Joe's father as well! It's a typically good episode of Medium; the season looks to be going out on a high-note.moreless
  • great episode

    9.5
    A ten year old case is reopened after Allison dreams about something that related to that case. The case becomes a bit more complicated when Allison finds out that the convicted man might be innocent. This episode is really well made. The actors played out their parts making us feel like they are the characters. The way the scenes were moving from one setting to another, it feels so fluid. It didn't make the scenes slow even during dramatic parts. It's a really good episode. It's entertaining, it makes me want to watch another episode, it's a really good episode.moreless
