I've known women who have had premonitions - one even gets weird twinklings where she blurts out things while watching the news - and then whatever info she states comes out to be true.
So this show really works for me. It could have easily gone for some kind of sensationalism and quickly sunk to the bottom, but the writers have decided to reach for something more meaningful by creating an everyday household trying to deal with an unique situation. In doing so they have made the fantastic seem much more plausible and have given the show a sturdy foundation.
If you are looking for refreshingly crisp dialogue and some excellent acting within a show that makes you think, then please give Medium a try. It's so much better than all those so called "reality" shows, or the posturing in such shows as CSI where the writers cover up their lack of skill by having the stars look meaningfully into the camera.
It's funny how a show that many think has an outlandish premise can actually come off as being so much more realistic.
I have to admit, when I first heard about Medium I was skeptical about the show. Being a big Patricia Arquette fan, I gave it a chance. I am now hooked.
The reason I was hesitant about the show is that when ever a TV network takes on a paranormal subject matter, it runs the risk of becoming an unbelievable joke. Want proof, watch Ghost Whisperer.
The cast of Medium is as strong as any on TV today. The writing of the episodes is almost always above the bar. I especially like the reacuring characters, Capt. Push of the Texas Ranger and Alison's brother Michael Benoit.
If you haven't seen Medium please give it a chance.
This is a wonderful show. It's fast paced and suspenseful. It will always keep you on the edge of your seat. This show is about a psychic, Alison Dubois, who works as a detective and solves cases using her dreams and psychic visions. This show is actually based on a real person and while I'm sure quite a bit of the story is made up, a lot of it is really based on aspects of her life. My favorite part of any Medium episode are the dreams. They don't usually make sense in the beggining but they always end up making sense in the end. I would recommend this show to everyone and anyone because there are so many things to like about it. There is the crime solving aspect that people who like Law and Order and CSI will like; there is the psychic part that people who like crossing over and psychic shows will like and theirs the mystery that just about everyone enjoys. I really like this show and I think you will too. And hey if you don't like it... Heck, who wouldn't like this show?
I'm not as obsessed with this show as I am with a few others, but it is in my top five. Firstly: Never dispute a woman's -or a parent's- intution. Not that a man -who isn't a father- can't have some sort of intuation, but a woman's, in my opinion, tends to be more... emotional based, and is usually tend to be better at intuting certain things. Secondly: Anyone as skilled at doing what Alison does -in real life or in TV land- deserves a lot of credit, especially when something they do doesn't turn out the way they expected to -or when something goes wrong, which, I'm sure, does happen on occasion.
Thirdly: Anyone with Alison's ... abilities, should -at the very least- consider working for law enforcement in some manner. Sure, not every cop/lawyer/anyone in the court system will accept the idea of someone like Alison, but we all have people who don't like us...
Gosh, Medium has to be one of my favorite shows of all time. I have to admit there are many times where I don't watch Medium for weeks but when I come back to it, it always blows me away.There's always something in there that's so poignant. It's a very touching show. Many episodes have me crying. It's very deep and thoughtful. It can also be funny and lighthearted. A better cast could not have been chosen. Even the young Allison is perfect for the role. I love how the whole episode comes together in the end. It always gives me chills up my spine. Amazing show! I gave it a 9.9 because I know it'll just keep getting better and better.
My mom got me hooked on Medium and I have been enjoying it since. Nowadays, I tape it onto my DVR to put onto disc or watch later (right now- only because still trying to figure out which channel is ABC, NBC, and CBS for where I live now). She does a great job and the rest of the cast is wonderful. I'm hoping it's on the air a long time to come. The Kelsey Grammer episode(s) were wonderful - enjoyed seeing him as death and loved the 3D episode - it kept me on the edge of my seat, in fat had to rewatch it to make sure I saw it all.
This show is slightley scary and very entertaining. This show "Medium" is Similar to the horror show "Roswell". Medium mine as well be classified as slightley a horror show because it is scary but this show is the best drama show in five years.
I give this show 5 out of 5 stars. If you wanted to see a masterpiece this is the show to watch. I'm glad this show has lasted a while, three years to be exact. I like all the characters and the whole show. Do me a favor watch this great show you will love it.
this show is good enough to last between a great shows like prison break , hereos ,and lost and the list go on as i said in the summry this new way of showing the medium kept it going i am still new to the show becouse i am wathcing it on MBC4 it's an arabic channel that brings shows toooooo late but it brings them evntuly so i get to see some good shows
This show is great, one of my favorites, it's suspenseful, scary, funny and dramatic. U just have to fall in love with the Dubois family, their happy and so inspiring. I just love this show, so if you don't watch it, your the one losing one of the best show on television.
Good show...keeps you thinking.Provocative and inspirational
series that starts you wondering about " life " after death.
Domino effect of your actions,can or do you change the lives
of the people you touch.
Some issues may trouble pre-teen children.Definitely should be watched with mature adults if children are viewing.Series started strong.. starting to become weaker in plot line. It's a nice change of pace allowing her children to become focused upon as main characters... hope they can pull it off.There is room for growth...maybe developing each person as a more rounded individual..more three dimensional. I would like to see all actors as real life figures. Getting back to the plot line...earlier episodes
were interesting and thought provocating. Newer " shows "
are becoming bland..hope to see more in-depth scenarios..
I really want to continue watching this program so i hope they step up to the task.
Allison Debua seems like your average, every day, working mother, but she's far, far, far more than that. Growing up with such a horrifying "gift" that she inherited from her mother, and all three of her daughters have proven to have inherited from her, Allison constantly saw the "memories" of objects that "witnessed" murders and talks to poltergiests and ghosts and spirits who seek help while being here. She follows Detective Scanlan, who besides the District Attourney, is the only one who knows about her "gift" where she works. She simply tells people that she's his assitant, but she truely helps him solve unsolved murder mysteries. The series is amazing, with great plots, shocking endings, etc. Her husband is amazingly supportive of her and her work, but gets scared at times considering she constantly wakes up in the middle of the night due to scary dreams that the spirits send to her to help her with the cases at hand.
This show is really unique because where do you find a show where the character is a psychic, really. At first, Although I liked it a lot, I thought that the show would be canceled for sure. But, to my amazement it is still running strong, which I'm very happy of because I love the show! The thing about this show that I though people wouldn't like was that I didn't find it that believable because some of the things that happened, not just the whole I can see who killed him, but the whole thing with getting into the police department and stuff. Other than that I was addicted to it, it is a great show and I hope it stays running strong forever!
I have to admit that this is one show that even if you are not believer in the supernatural you will be by the end of the show, and knowing that its after a true story makes me believe even more. Patricia Arquette as Allison Dubois you defenelty cant get a better choice than that. You really believe in her character. Channel 10 bring back season 3.
Medium is simply great entertainment. There is no need for sexual content or just beautiful people because the content speaks for itself; it doesn't need flash. It integrates intelligence and mystery solving into a mind exercising experience. The imagery and characters are very well developed, realistic, and creative. They never take it too far just for ratings. Patricia Arquette and Jake Weber are excellent at their jobs, you really believe they are the characters. The D.A. Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) never goes outside realistic bounderies, over or under, in his belief and trust of Allison DuBois. This simply means the writers are excellent. Congratulations to you all!!
Medium has got to be one of the best tv shows that i have ever came across. I can't do without it. I love it so much as i can relate to it so well. Having something like this can help me develop my mediumship skills and focus on all the good that i can do
Well i am from Scotland and watch it like there is no tomorrow. I have never been addicted to a tv show in my life but i can't do without this one. Being young and a developing medium myself, this tv show is a complete god send to me as at first having that sort of skill and talent was scary. Watching this programme is helping me to understand that you can help so much people with your skill and talent... I thank everyone behind Medium. It really is a God Send. :) xx
Program is good. You never know what they are going to come up with next. I\'m glad they haven\'t yank it. It seems that they have a plot to the show. It\'s not just all sex. Which is nice. You have to use your mind and they to figure out who did it.
I'm not sure people are ready for this but I love it. It makes you think twice about discounting things down as deje vu. Patricia Arquette is perhaps the only person who could have portrayed this woman\\\'s life. Easily the most original series Medium is opening the avenue for more series in this genre. More and more people are open to the possibility of ESP.... now there is a TV series that makes it more personal than the X files. I hope to see it on TV for a long long time. Who would have thought of this for TV?
i think medium is GREAT...Patricia arquette is stunning, the three girls even have their own abilities...The plot, what can i say, is so addictive, its like drugs...you CANNOT stop watching it when u first see it
medium is gut-wrenching, clever in every way possible, heck they even have a 3-d episode...i personally think medium is one of the best series showing now....can anybody suggest others that may captivate me as well as medium has done to mer...it made me ADDICTED.....hey, is how i met your mother good???and heroes???
Another good show that you just wish the network would leave alone. I think the writing and performances have taken a hit because of all the bouncing around which kind of makes it hard for faithful followers to tune in.
I think the network is ambivilant about this program and maybe the writers and actors are loosing their enthusiasim for what started out as another fresh show hot out of the oven. If this show goes belly up the network has no one to blame but themselves. I think that the suits don't really respect the show or for that matter the idea and fact that there is something to paranormal research. I mean when the actors made the rounds on the talk shows for the pilot they were ridiculed more than anything else.
When I first learned of the show I was so excited to have something finally to watch on TV that interested me. So many people now a days are into this whole speak to the dead thing.. like with John Edwards and Alison Debois herself. I like that it gears towards a maturer crowd. Its not overly exaggerated. It basically keeps to what the real world Mediums pretty much go through. In my opinion anyway. I love that I have choices. With my other favorite show Ghost Whisperer I can expect a little more exaggeration. Thats what makes both shows keep me coming back for more. Because they are so different but yet have similarities that are true to real life as what we believe.
My only problem is the 10pm..I am exuasted by then so its hard to stay up, but I do!!
This show is so amazing! There are so few shows my husband and I can watch together, but this is definitely one of them. This last show was exceptional, I absolutely love it when her daughter’s gifts are used. It makes it so much more real and believable. And her old boyfriend … wow, that would have been a very hard ghost to ignore. And that's her real husband, rock on! The cartoon twist in the plot I thought was a great idea. It really brought the mother / daughter turmoil together, especially when it was scoffed at.
Anyways....besides that screw up I still love your show - the kids even match the parents... Gotta love it! About time you brought it back!! I thought for awhile that you might have cancelled... Thank goodness the tv execs are paying attention to the viewers... Don\\\'t cancel this who please... Oh and NEVER use a different nationality for the wrong language spoken..... Didn\\\'t like that.... What else can I say since this review thing requires 100 words to type? Patricia Arquette you are awesome!! Oh and so is the rest of your family totally make the show - don\\\'t ever replace anyone! Thanks - woohoo 105!
Medium is one of the greatest shows of it\\\'s time. Original and thrilling plotlines, and mind provoking episodes is what this show is known for. Patricia Arquette portray\\\'s Allison in a way in which no other actress could compair. This show is a must see every week, as each episode is better than the last. The writers always have new and exciting ideas, which make you want to watch ever more. It\\\'s one of those shows, that when it\\\'s over, you wish there was more. Not only is the writing fantastic, but this is one of the most fantastic shows on television.
I have never missed an episode. Then I read the book, this is so close to Allison's life. I have a grandmother who is psyhic, and a sister, and I believe 100 percent that there are those who have this gift. This is the best show on television.
greatest show on the television. this show stands out all on it's own... AWESOME !!!
The story lines are so unique, and really make you pay attention. They are different because I am sure they are mostly based or loosly based on actual stories. Not your regular cop show, which are all the same to me. And also the medical shows, pretty much all the same.
SHOW DESCRIPTION:A housewife finds herself "gifted" with the ability to see and hear dead people. Her rocket scientist husband goes from being a skeptic to a bemused believer as she embarks on solving crimes across the country.
BRIEF HISTORY:Patricia Arquette's character is based on a real person. Glenn Gordon Caron ("Moonlighting," "Now & Again") and Kelsey Grammer ("Frasier") are executive producers of the show.
STARS: * Patricia Arquette as Allison Dubois * Miguel Sandoval as D.A. Devalos * Jake Weber as Joe Dubois * April Grace as Balinda Alexander * Sofia Vassilieva as Ariel Dubois
Medium is a fun show to watch. You could call it a mystery/crime type of show but with one big twist. The main character as some special abilities. Things like seeing the future in her dreams and then trying to keep people from getting killed or she helps solve a murder. Talking to dead people sometimes. Can take on a "Sixth Sense" feel or "Ghost Whisperer" The main character Alison also has two young daughters who show the beginnings of her abilities. I am not sure how long things go before they run out of material though. I bet things could stay interesting if they made it a little more scary! Bring on the new season!!
Medium is based on the woman Alison Dubois who can see into the future and ghosts. It is a very entertaining show which can really get you interested. The characters are very human. Patricia Arquette and Jake Weber are excellent in their roles as husband and wife, while the children, Sofia Vassilieva and Maria Lark keep the show humourous with their arguements with each other. The stories are very good, and are very creative, scary, funny, and dramatic. the supporting roles of Miguel Sandoval as the DA is a good one alos. Medium is a great show with a great cast! 10 out of 10.
This is an excellent show. It is very different from what is on out there. It follows Alison Dubois who has dreams of things that have happened or things that will happen. She also sees dead people. She helps the police solve crimes. It is new and diffrent. I have been patiently waiting for it to come back. Now I know. Sort of. Anybody have any idead whn football ends??? I miss this show. The last show was weird. It showed what would have happened had Alison not married Joe. It was very interesting. I hope it comes back soon.
I keep looking and looking to find what night Medium is on, but no luck?! I always looked forward to finishing my Monday with the best show on TV. I assumed that they were trying to push one of their new shows in to that time slot because what a following it had developed, but not to put it back on. I haven\'t even seen any advertisements for what night it was changed to. I am so bummed and find myself flipping channels to find it. Where or where have they put my new best friend?! Someone please tell me! I\'m no Allison but I\'m having visions that they cancelled it, because I can not find it. :0(
I think the next upcoming show will have Wilson Jermaine Heredia in it. He posted a blog on Myspace saying he was filming an episode so keep an eye out.
Anyway, I love the show and it'll be even better with Wilson Jermaine Heredia on it. (sorry about writing the whole name again, I just had to make enough words to make a hundred.) But anyways, has anyone seen Kidnapped lately? Anthony Rapp is on it and he plays a guy in prison who (for those who have been watching) Kidnapped his sister. He's in jail, but don't know why.
