I look forward to purchasing the final season.

Killing Allison and Joe in the end because CBS made no profit from the show is...what can I say...?

The good thing about Season 7 and the whole series was watching the whole family change.

Few "law and order"-type shows leave one with a profound sense of knowing the characters' family lives like the back of their hand anymore. (This isn't the days of "Cagney & Lacey"-type programs, after all.) Few make the heartstrings pull when it's time to go off the air for good, but this one did. I have watched the show since the beginning of it's run, not always faithfully (especially when their time & day kept changing) but I have seen the last two seasons without missing an episode. It was an exceptionally well-crafted show, especially when one considers the premise- focusing on a psychic who works for the D.A.'s office, has a husband, three kids & lives in Phoenix, AZ. Not exactly thrilling, based on that bare description. But the combination of polished, powerful, talented & yet understated acting combined with more surprises in the plots than curves in a West Virginia back road kept this going for seven seasons.

I am single & child-free, but the family element of "Medium" is what made it most memorable for me. The seventh season left Joe & Allison at odds more often than before as career, age & family changes caused them to look at life anew. We saw Ariel head off to college (and her real-life portrayer head off the show, too). Joe's mother also left the canvas. Both actresses departed in ways that played out beautifully, but nonetheless sadly, for the viewer. Allison, Manuel Devalos & Joe Scanlon faced great challenges both in their work environment & in their personal relationships, and the tests thrown at them created much of the show's tension. Det. Scanlon became even more of a well-rounded character to me this year, as his weaknesses somehow also became his strengths.

I'm not sure what happened here, I can't quite believe it and it saddens me to break it to those viewers who have loyally followed and derived enjoyment from this series as I have during its run, but the final seventh outing of this superb show ends on a deeply disappointing and deflating note.

To preface, I learned that season seven would be the final season after I finished viewing season six and was surprised to say the least, especially so since in my opinion there had been no decline in either the consistency or inventiveness displayed by the writers (notably Glenn Gordon Caron) throughout the previous six seasons. The idea that the network executives/producers of the show had decided to end the series on a high-note seemed premature, but perhaps laudable (considering how many television series out-stay their welcome to some degree). This is in spite of the fact that I personally hadn't observed any signs that this brilliant show was growing stale. But whether that decision was correct remains debatable, all I do know is that the final seventh season does little justice to the quality of the series as a whole.

Firstly, there will be disappointment for many with the thirteen-episode format (the fewest number since season four's sixteen). But as an avid viewer of `Medium' from the very beginning I clung to the hope that the potential for this (admittedly truncated) season given the wealth of material developed in the lives of the Dubois family in previous seasons would be fulfilled. There was so much possibility to pick up old story-threads and re-visit memorable characters from previous seasons, but the only storyline that's continued here in the final season is that of Joe's mother.

WOW!! That's what I have to say about this amazing series! I had no clue it would run 7 seasons due to being slapped around by NBC for its first 5 years. It premiered back in January 2005 as a mid-season replacement and its first 16 episodes were simply astonishing! Patricia Arquette played Allison DuBois excellent. It was almost if the dead were omnipotent! Every where she looked she saw a dead person good or bad, lost or confused and tried to at first block them out by drinking! After NBC canceled the show in May 2009 (although it was outperforming their other shows) CBS picked it up for its remaining two seasons.

Back to season 7 (the final season), was just simply amazing!! The writers, actors, directors and producers all worked hard as hell to produce one of the finest prime time shows of the 00's and 10's. Season 7 began right where Season 6 ended as Allison continued to recover from her brain tumor. Her eldest daughter Ariel went off to college this season and we got to see more acting from the middle daughter Bridgett. The first episode "Bring your daughter to work day" was a take on the film "Freaky Friday", that being said, Bridgett and Mom switched places and it was nice to have a comical relief after all the sad ordeal that ended with season 6.

The series continued to get better with each episode. We got to see more details about Detective Lee Scanlon's life and how he and his deceased brother were treated as children, and his precious daughter Lee by Lynn whom he married. Another great episode was "The Match Game", in this episode we see Allison seeing hearts on people's foreheads and thinking they are matched and fate is working, but does it work for the greater good?!?
