  • Summary: Not only does Jennifer Love Hewitt see dead people, she talks to them too. It's only a matter of time before they tell her: "You're cancelled." Unless having Hewitt run around in a nightgown is enough to secure decent ratings. (Which, come to think of it, might just do it.)

    What is special about "Ghost Whisperer" is the way it gets everything else right -- casting, acting, writing, directing, pacing, music, you name it.
  2. 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.
  3. The problem with "Ghost Whisperer" is its lack of focus.
  4. A series like this can go in a lot of different directions, and creator-writer-director John Gray takes them there. He goes for the scary, the funny and the overbearingly sentimental, but it is the latter that dominates.
  5. 10
    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.
  6. No series in recent memory has put so much attention on a pair of breasts.... Oh, and the show is terrible.

    Jennifer Love Hewitt is absolutely good in playing Melinda Gordon. She's a great actress and can really act. She's back with us Jennifer Love Hewitt is absolutely good in playing Melinda Gordon. She's a great actress and can really act. She's back with us remember she's the original teen/TV Queen trashing Sarah, Katie and other girls on TV. She's definitely great. The show I know will stay there for long.! Expand

    I really like this show but was disapointed that the dog didn't to with the boys and he should of since he was with them the whole time.

We believe that we will be with our animals in the next life and so you should have sent the dog with them. Expand
