MEDIUM “Labor Pains” Review

MEDIUM "Labor Pains" Season 7 Episode 12 – Allison meets a man who has been stalking her via mail for years. The man is desperate for Allison to use her psychic powers to find his wife, who has been missing for a couple of years. Meanwhile, Joe is concerned that Maria might have a learning disability when she starts exhibiting some erratic academic behaviour. There were so many wacked out things about this episode I’m not sure where to begin. I will say that whilst I thought it was a huge improvement over last week’s stilted episode, the show took some risks that, whilst admirable, left me peeling my eyebrows from the ceiling. This was mainly due to the plot development that followed the fairly ridiculous and unconvincingly execution of Allison’s kidnapping, whereby Allison forgave the man who kidnapped her at gunpoint, handcuffed her to a bed and fed her sleeping pills, in effect threatening not only herself, but the health and happiness of her husband and children. Sure, I expected some closure from that scenario; I did not expect to see her forgive her kidnapper and reunite the clearly unstable man with his toddler daughter. Sure, he went to all of these extremes for the sake of love, but, seriously Allison? Seriously? Read More... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/daemonstv/~3/VZKzrX4vUJU/

MEDIUM “Only Half Lucky” Review

MEDIUM "Only Half Lucky" Season 7 Episode 11 – David Arquette guest stars as Allison’s brother Michael, a loser who, with the aid of a dead self help guru, has climbed out of the gutter and is now employed and happy-and he only had to sell his body to do so. In order to finish what he left unfinished on earth, the self help guru strikes a deal with Michael, promising him charm and success as a salesman in return for the use of his body in order to knock off the hopeful transplant patients who stand between a heart and his sick wife. These are the final episodes of Medium . The show has enjoyed a long run and has produced some very fine episodes of television, but from Arquette’s lazy and jarringly put-on acting to the sentimental dialogue, this is one of the weakest episodes of Medium I’ve ever seen.

MEDIUM “The People in Your Neighborhood” Review

Allison wakes up to a totally unpleasant dream: a man who raped a teenage girl has moved into her neighborhood. This introduces them to more nervous parents around the neighborhood who are organizing a meeting. Medium is forked as a family drama and a crime drama and, typically, it works best on both fronts. This was certainly the case with this episode. Joe is getting some encouragement at work, and his boss forces him to miss the meeting: "Hey, I know you. Didn’t you used to be my husband? Didn’t we use to do things together like go to community meetings about sex offenders who live on our block?" Of course the crime drama prong took a brilliant turn when Allison has a dream revealing that the sex offender is innocent: his pupil, a wonderful Tracy Flick-like character, is so determined to be valedictorian that she hacks his emails and frames him for rape when he dares give her a B for her essay.

MEDIUM “Smoke Damage” Review

When Allison has a dream about a girl trapped in a burning building, all of the clues point to a fireman, or, to be more precise, a top-dog, first in, last out, very distinguished super fireman. Elsewhere, Devalos is offered a rung on the career ladder but an old friend and future rival threatens his privacy. A major twist comes when the fireman who killed the girl is actually the girl’s father. The other twist? The girl was not such a sweetheart; she was a druggie whose junkie boyfriend mugged a college student. On the Allison front, this probably won’t go down as one of the best Medium episodes. The fireman was a contract killer, and the scene in which Allison interviewed the fireman’s ex-wife was a little preposterous: what kind of woman opens the door to a complete stranger accusing her husband of murder and asking for a piece of her dead daughter’s DNA?

MEDIUM “Native Tongue” Review

When Allison wakes up one morning and finds that all she can understand is gibberish (or so she thinks) the language barrier causes a rift between herself and Joe as she tries to solve the murder of two Native Americans. One of the major problems with Medium is that the show is constantly balancing a line between brilliant and disbelief. This week fell firmly into the latter category. There were so many ridiculous things wrong with this episode it was almost laughable. First of all you have the hot doctor scenario: that Joe would even consider cheating on Allison, after so many years, with the first hot woman to show an interest in him was just insulting to our intelligence. He has always been shown as the ever patient, loving, understanding husband. That he would consider faltering so quickly (she suffered from the inability to understand English for only three days remember-three lousy days) was just ridiculous. To Read More Click Here.

MEDIUM “Where Were You When…” Review

An earthquake is hitting Arizona at 9.18am and Allison DuBois is seeing hands. Every time she touches someone she sees exactly where they were when the earthquake hit. From Marie’s art class, to Joe vandalising a house to a garage security guard finding a car bomb, she sees the location, the time, everything except the day which makes her feel increasingly helpless. Meanwhile Joe is enlisted n the neighbourhood watch to keep an eye out for hooligans who are vandalising a foreclosed house. It was another excellent instalment of Medium, making CBS’ downsize order of 22 episodes to only 13 all the more bitter. This show is just a misnomer: everything is working for it: cast, direction, writing, plots, everything: is there any other show that can switch from the father lovingly commenting on "joining our little Picasso in bed" to the bloody body parts of a building investigator in plastic bags being thrown into dumpsters.

MEDIUM “Talk To The Hand” Review Season 7, Episode 5

Allison DuBois has this problem. After spilling boiling water over her arm, she had to get a skin graf. Afterwards she cannot stop dreaming of a woman called Monica who worked in a hospital. This woman was tasered and abducted from her home. She was then put in the trunk of a car, knocked unconscious, had her throat slit and her skin removed. In short, she had a really bad night. Allison knows who killed Monica: a surgeon who was in cahoots with a burial home owner. Together they sold skin and bones to other hospitals, cutting them from the unwilling deceased. Meanwhile, Bridgette has become the star soccor player on her team after she gets some private coaching from a dead guy. The coach has his own agenda: he wants Bridgette’s fairly pathetic team to face off with his old one so that his team will win by a landslide. They do, but Bridgette learns a valuable lesson. Joe is unsure whether this qualifies as cheating and he gets in a bit of a tif with Allison over her psychic abilities. One of my favorite moments was probably when Marie and Joe sat down on the bench simultaneously. It was just adorable. To Read More Click Here.

MEDIUM ''Means and Ends'' Review Season 7, Episode 3

After appearing too briefly in the first two episodes of the seventh season Lee Scanlon is front and center in a powerful episode rife with moral dilemmas. His older brother also makes an appearance as a ghost haunting him. Meanwhile, Ariel's Dartmouth roommate gives her a ring which is rather surprising; especially when it turns out she's been dead for eleven years. It started off with Scanlon sitting outside of a house. Inside the house a man is assaulting his wife and son. As soon as the altercation gets physical Scanlon hops out of his car to stop it. This is all well and good; until Scanlon starts beating the man in front of his wife and son. The man is scum. He deserves a beating, sure. But this episode of Medium was about the center ground between right and wrong. Had Scanlon arrested the man he would have returned to assaulting his wife and son the minute he got out of jail. But was he right to beat the man up in front of his wife and son? To Read More  Click Here .
