Product Description

Ever since she was a young girl, Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) has been able to see and talk to dead people--earth bound spirits who have yet to cross over to the other side and who seek her help in communicating and resolving unfinished business with the living. Melinda sometimes has a hard time accepting her "gift," especially now that she's a newlywed and looking forward to starting her new life with her husband, Jim Clancy (David Conrad), a paramedic. Her friend and business partner in the antique store, Andrea Moreno (Aisha Tyler), is fascinated by Melinda's talent. Although Melinda embraces her unique "abilities" as a blessing and sometimes a curse, she always helps her clients--alive or dead--find emotional closure.

Amazon.com

Ghost Whisperer is not a show for cynics (or anyone who hates everything with the word "whisperer" attached to it). Though half of the show aims to make your flesh creep, the other half works just as hard to make everything warm and fuzzy. Ghosts walk into Melinda Gordon's life the way snappy dames walked into Sam Spade's office, hitting her up for aid with a hard-luck story and a whole lot of strings attached. Her job is to help them untie the emotional knot that's keeping them earthbound--which usually involves, in one way or another, telling a still-living friend or relative how much the dead person loved them. Whether it's a Vietnam vet who never met his son, a standup comedian who committed suicide, a bride who died on her big day, or a poltergeist child, in the end Melinda--assisted by her hunky paramedic husband Jim and vaguely useless best friend Andrea--will find a way to lead them to the light. (Ghost Whisperer is evasive about its theological implications, but Melinda's black-hatted nemesis from the season's end has a distinctly devilish air.)

Keeping a foot in both worlds as Melinda is Jennifer Love Hewitt (Party of Five, Garfield), an actress who doesn't seem entirely natural; between her cartoonish physical dimension (the show isn't shy about displaying her bosom), her fake eyelashes, and the seemingly molded contours of her face, she's like a life-sized doll. Unfortunately, this quality lends a similarly plastic feel to her telegenic smile and earnest looks of compassion. The scripts are strictly middle-of-the-road tv fare, with obvious turns of plot and heavy-handed emotional crises, but the special effects conjure some eeriness. Extras include docs on the show's development, the lovely opening credits (based on the art of Maggie Taylor), and the paranormal investigators whose work inspired the show, along with a handful of episode commentaries and deleted scenes. Fans will not feel cheated. --Bret Fetzer

OK, I will admit to watching this for the lovely Jennifer Love Hewitt, having followed her career since Party of Five and several movies of varying quality. And when I first read that she would be returning to television in a series with this story I was, to put it mildly, not encouraged. But I have to admit this is quite a good show. Yes, the concept is similar to NBC's Medium but crossed with CBS' Touched by an Angel. So yes, it's a little corny at times. It's probably aimed at an older demographic being on CBS. But that doesn't detract from it being rather good, in that "tell me a spooky story" mode like the old Twilight Zone shows were at times.

Jennifer plays Melinda Gordon, recently married, now a small business owner in the town of Grandview (state unknown, but aren't all TV small towns like that?) who has held a particular ability since childhood, the ability to communicate with the dead. She "sees" them and is sought out by them to help them make their final journeys into the afterlife. Or "crossover" as it's been termed. But before they can, they all have unfinished business with their loved ones. Usually, it's the circumstances behind their deaths that lead them to Melinda. So "the dead" range from an M.I.A. soldier wishing to tell his now grown son the details of his disappearance, to a wrongly executed artist, to a 9 year old boy trying to tell his mother his death was not her fault. Naturally those she encounters are all skeptical, even hostile at times. But even she admits it's not easy having this ability, at times she wishes she didn't have it.

With each episode we learn a little more about her and her abilities with the undead.

I didn't expect to like this show. I thought it would be too sweet and that there would be no chills at all. I was so wrong. Unlike the full-blooded horror of "Supernatural", "Ghost Whisperer" disturbs you in a quiet way. These stories are rooted in deeply human conflicts and are often heart-wrenching. The program's spiritual themes are so uplifting. Highly recommended. I will be first in line to buy the second season!

I wasn't really sure what to expect when I first started watching Ghost Whisperer because I used to watch Medium and got tired of that. This is so much better than Medium - I think it has something to do with the younger and more vibrant cast.

Melinda Gordon (Love-Hewitt) realises at a young age that she has a gift to talk to those who haven't yet crossed over. Why haven't they crossed over yet? They have unfinished business here on earth and it becomes her job to help them.

The show really begins with Melinda's wedding to Jim (the gorgeous David Conrad from Miss-Match) and when they move into their new house, she's already confronted by the first ghost that we see. Each weeks episode features a new ghost who needs her help, and while it may sound corny, it is sometimes moving and sad and sweet all at the same time.

It's a good show that may not appeal to everyone, but is definately worth trying to watch (if you are someone who thinks this may not appeal to you). I also like Melinda's business partner, Andrea (Aisha Tyler) who tries to understand and help out Melinda with all the ghostly goings on. I love this and I think it will have a wide appeal - I'm not normally someone who's into ghostly stuff, but this is a great show. I highly recommend it.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Don't buy this DVD set expecting to hear the great soundtrack from the show we love. The cover says: "SOME MUSIC HAS BEEN CHANGED FOR THIS HOME ENTERTAINMENT VERSION." That's putting it mildly. From what I can tell, *all* of the popular songs have been changed to generic Musak.

On broadcast episodes of Ghost Whisperer, background music/lyrics are important; sometimes they actually define or even divine the entire episode. The deletion of "You Are What You Love" by Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins from "The Vanishing" is a travesty. This profound, yet upbeat song is replaced by a slow, awful ballad that gives absolutely no hint to the joy, the highs and lows, and sweetness that's love - and also is Melinda's gift. The song was the episode's "teaser" - but it was also so much more than that! It set a tone of hope for "The Vanishing." Without "You Are What You Love" the episode is oppressive and painful to watch.

CBS made a poor choice stripping the broadcast music. I would've gladly paid a little extra to cover licensing fees.

As for the DVD set itself? It's okay. There are extras, deleted scenes and commentary tracks. This is a slim set, too. (Yippee!) But there are no subtitles other than Closed Captioning.

I purchased what I thought would be the complete, unedited Ghost Whisperer, Season 1. Instead, I got Ghost Whisperer Lite. It's like waiting all day for a Café Mocha and receiving watered-down decaf instead; "It's the same thing." No, it's not!

Maybe CBS will release a restored version of Ghost Whisperer Season 1? I'd buy THAT in a heartbeat!

Delayed
I know. I was kind of disappointed about that. Makes me think that they might of canceled the show since they are delaying the season one DVD. Hopefully they're not. Hopefully it will be out by either October or November.
