Critic Reviews

  1. Hewitt is quite good, or as good as the show allows; there are some potholes along the way, as the script sacrifices sense to sentiment.

    Doubtless this kind of death-walking sentimentality has its fans. And most of those fans probably won't even wonder why some of the dead are stuck in the clothes in which they died, while others get to rent tuxedos.
  3. The problem with "Ghost Whisperer" is its lack of focus.

    A mini-triumph of style over substance (of which there is almost none).

Boring, sentimental, predictable. The actors are all mediocre and their characters are very two dimensional. The stories are all the same. Overall a bad tv series with zero tension, drama, originality. Full Review »

And that is a BIG maybe. For me it got old real quick. Every episode is about the same thing over and over again. Really hard to swallow even for fiction. Why would anyone want to watch a series when you know basically what the outcome is going to be every time. So after the first 10 or so episodes, whats the point? Not to mention the bad acting, bad writing and was incredibly boring. Just another mindless rip-off ghost show for all those 'ghost junkies' out there. Full Review »

Instead, they have fooled us with the title: it is a supernatural drama, but it tends to lean toward the dramatic side, as there is nothing even remotely spooky about it, and it is aggravatingly dull. For those who expect a supernatural drama...wow. Full Review »
