Allison DuBois is special. Been special for all her life, and spent most of it trying to hide that special gift. Then, one day, she decides to quit her law studies and spend her time exploring this gift she has spent so much time hiding.
Little by little, Allison gets more and more involved in helping the D.A. as a "consultant". Helping to catch and ensure the bad guys pay for their crimes. Just don't expect any flash demon fighting or fast action chases; Allison is a medium in the "real" world. Dealing with real-world problems and sceptics.
While the stories are good; intelligent even. It's the acting that lets the show down, the acting of just one person. There are scenes with Patricia Arquette that make me think "wooden", but then maybe I'm just a perfectionist.
