Based on semi-true experiences and tales from a real psychic, the show follows Melinda Gordon (Hewitt) with her backstory as a clairvoyant who can see and talk to earth-bound spirits since childhood to her marriage and life in a sleepy town where she manages an antique shop.

It is through the shop that she meets these ghosts and some of their "unfinished business" counterparts (family, friends that are still living) that Melinda works through and with to help send the ghosts "into the light" and bring peace to both parties.

The show lasted for many seasons on CBS and did focus initially on a "ghost of the week" storyline, until the stories started to turn into more of a direct connection to Melinda and her family/friends on the series. The last few seasons really focused on this and connection to her son who possessed the same, if not greater abilities as Melinda.

A very low-key show in the way of any sort of horror, but still could bring the creep and scary factor for the light-hearted or unsuspecting viewer. Overall, the cast seemed very connected and true to their characters and brought a lot of depth to the episodes and plot lines and carried a basic promise that you are not alone and that love is the everlasting bond that connects us.
