    Ghost Whisperer sets the scene slowly, with breasts and shadows, but by the end of the season we've got a villain in a top hat, secrets about Melinda's mother and grandmother are foretold, a plane crash and one very saddening death. An enjoyable series that often needs more of the supernatural, less of the sentimentality.

    I always find it corny when it comes to i-have-a-gift / i-can-talk-to-ghosts shows, story, movie. But this one is not as bad as I think bc it has an almost-realistic story.

    A matinée show for children and young adult. 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.

    Simply an excellent show, leaving viewers quite excited in each episode showing an incredible story that leads us to reflect on our lives. Jennifer Love Hewitt is to be congratulated on this show.

    Maybe this show would be okay if it were a mini-series. And that is a BIG maybe. For me it got old real quick. Every episode is about the same thing over and over again.

    GHOST WHISPERER is no paranormal thriller--for those who expect just that of it, don't watch it. 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.

The show never stops to try to explain it's convoluted metaphysics and nobody seems to care because it makes them feel fuzzy inside. Is this what TV entertainment has been reduced to? Nothing but cheap nonsensical sentimental moments, with a few clips of Hewitt's breasts every now and then to distract from the fact that the show makes absolutely no sense, and has absolutely no plot?

After coming from the massive storylines in the last two seasons, you go back to the first and realize how simple the show used to be. Throughout season one, the main 'story' only really comes into play at small increments scattered throughout the series (usually at the end of episodes) and it never really leads anywhere until the final two episodes (which is the strongest season finale of the series, although season 2 comes close). Each episode just contains a ghost-of-the-week which Melinda must help with their problems. While this was present in later seasons the ghosts usually ended up feeling like a catalyst in order for the main storyline to progress, making each story feel diluted. Season one captures all the greatness of the show in almost every episode, and the cast hold the show up and bring it beyond a simple drama.

    Some of the storylines and characters from this season may be simply forgotten about in later seasons, but the beginning of the Ghost Whisperer saga is something that will stay with viewers long after the series ends.

Have Jim be Jim!Also get Mels' Mother to wake up and work with her daughter using her gift too! She doesn't have to to be devoted to her gift the way Mel is, she can use hers more grudgingly, kind of because she has too~ in order to help her family!!!!

    I really like this show. The support that she gets from her husband is beautiful, and anyone that is different and has been taunted for it knows how important love and support are. Not many shows have that anymore. When CBS killed off "The Closer's" husband, I quickly lost interest because there was no kindness in the program anymore. We need more kindness in the world and on tv.

    Jennifer Love Hewitt is perfectly cast as Melinda Gordon. The scripts are inventful and corny but they work. Camryn Manheim's character is a great addition to the show. Let's hope it doesn't run out of steam.

    First season was great, but the second season's wheels have fallen off. Real pity the show drifted away from the format that was good in the 1st season.

    This show may never win any awards, but it is good entertainment, in my opinion. I am not associated with this show in any way; I am just an ordinary viewer. This is the only show that has ever made me cry. Very few shows ignite that amount of emotion in me; I am fairly stoic. (I rarely laugh at any comedies, either.)

    Overall I give this show an 8. I was going to give a 10, but after thinking hard on the show production I decided to minus the 10 by 2... I read through all of your comments guys and girls, and some of your comments on JLH not having good boobs whatsoever is somewhat irrelevant. You should be the ones to get on with your lives! Beauty doesn't make the show great, the acting does. Overall I give this show an 8. I was going to give a 10, but after thinking hard on the show production I decided to minus the 10 by 2... I read through all of your comments guys and girls, and some of your comments on JLH not having good boobs whatsoever is somewhat irrelevant. You should be the ones to get on with your lives! Beauty doesn't make the show great, the acting does. Beauty is only men's eye-candy, and for those that "know how to spell their names" would take this for common sense. The criticisms I have for this show is same with some of yours though; each episodes are similar. But at least not all, but it does get quite boring quick enough. This show is aired at 10:30pm my time here, each Monday. A show that is aired at this time, it wouldn't be a total Horror/Thriller genre, which in other words it wouldn't be as scary as anyone would first imagine. I mean, sure I was expecting something more frightening but hey, I enjoy the show not because it is frightening, not because it thrills me but because everything is quite balanced out. If you compare this to some movies say, The Ring, I'd rather watch this because The Ring has a piece of **** storyline. Then again, the music and background effects aren't good enough, but JLH certainly played a good role in the show. I have a friend who can see the dead, and just comparing JLH's performances and my friend's attitude and personality I can tell JLH is really good at acting, though there is still room for improvements. She still doesn't stand out, too normal to be a spiritual person... Or whatever you call them, I just don't call them freaks because I believe they are gifted not cursed. Last advice: for those who are looking forward to getting total fright from watching this show, don't even bother criticizing this show, it's great although not awesome, and before you make comments you gotta look at the show from different points of views not just from the "Horror/Thriller" point of view or the "Beauty/Sexy" point of view... You know, a series that can worth 0 points would be something like "Coronation Street" (Aussie or Briton show, I can't be bothered to find out because it sux), and I don't think TGW deserves 0 marks.

    I'm not a fan of Hewitt, and I don't think she is a great actress, but this show is quite great if you give it a chance. There is a great potential in this show and I hope they will still keep airing it...

    It is so obvious to see that Jennifer Love Hewitt and the other lack-luster actors in this show have overwhelmingly attacked this site to enter good comments- or else someone was paid off to sit here all day and enter in good votes.

I watched the show for the first time tonight, and there is no contest- the show is absolutely horrendous. Jennifer Love is not attractive, not a good actress, the script is horrible, the music is ridiculous- building up where the scene doesn't even call for it to cause you to have a heart-attack (a cheap trick) and the unbelievable relationship between her and her husband is like they are mockingly copying "Medium" or more like they are in acting school doing an improved scene of kids playing "house". I have never been so insulted by a tv show in my life. The dropping of hints throughout the episode- Jennifer obviously has no idea what the intelligence of the audience is these days. It's truely insulting. I almost expected her to do an "Infomercial" reminding us to stand up to domestic violence during the commercial break. Jennifer, give up now on your producing efforts, you must give really good ****, because this stuff is crap. Look at your competition, honey, we want complicated, interesting and unassuming scipts- and we don't need to rely on your rack or spooky music to be entertained. And if you guys disagree, I pity your taste in a good body (she's a white trash, texas, bland, twink...with a boob job) Expand

    Overly sentimental, pointless, mawkish, humourless, incredulous. Plotlines get more ridiculous the more the producers realise that theres only limited mileage in talking to dead people who need to find 'closure' to move to the 'other side'. Sub-plots are vacuous.

    Quite frankly the Sep 15 2006 episode is very best television show I have ever seen. This one hour show made the big screen mega-bucks movies pale in comparison. Pitt, Clooney, Cruise, Lohan, Duff, eat your hearts out. The cast on this show makes you look all like amatuers........

    At times during ''Ghost Whisperer," the sentiment is so thick you might want to go away from the light -- the light from the TV set, that is.
  2. 88
    What is special about "Ghost Whisperer" is the way it gets everything else right -- casting, acting, writing, directing, pacing, music, you name it.
  3. 20
    Pretty pointless.
