Product Description

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer, creator and director Glenn Gordon Caron ("Moonlighting") comes "Medium," a chilling drama series inspired by the real-life story of research medium Allison DuBois. Emmy winner Patricia Arquette ("Stigmata," "Flirting with Disaster") stars as a young wife and mother who, since childhood, has been struggling to make sense of her dreams and visions of dead people. Arquette received the Emmy in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category after the telecast of the initial 16 episodes of the critically acclaimed series. Allison DuBois (Arquette) is a strong-willed young mother of three, a devoted wife and law student who begins to suspect that she can talk to dead people, see the future in her dreams and read people's thoughts. Fearing for her mental health, she turns for support to her husband Joe (Jake Weber, "U-571"), an aerospace engineer, who slowly comes to believe that what his wife is telling him just might be true. The real challenge is convincing her boss, D.A. Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) -- and the other doubters in the criminal justice system -- that her psychic abilities can give them the upper hand when it comes to solving violent and horrifying crimes whose mysteries often reside with those who live beyond the grave.

Season Two of NBC-TV's hit series Medium finds the show gradually evolving, and while the changes aren't all for the better, the combination of star Patricia Arquette, creator-executive producer Glen Gordon Caron, and the other contributors still makes for entertaining viewing. As Allison DuBois, whose skills as both a medium and psychic make her indispensable to Phoenix district attorney Manuel Devalos (Miguel Sandoval), Arquette, a 2005 Emmy winner, is still at center stage. It is her visions of murderers, serial killers, child abductors, and such that help solve the show's various crimes; the fact that these visions (which usually arrive via some very unsettling nightmares) can be ambiguous and open to misinterpretation, resulting in bizarre, embarrassing behavior on Allison's part, remains an integral part of the show's appeal.

The 22 Season Two episodes (on six discs) contain plenty of genuinely gripping, even shocking moments, but Caron (who also wrote and directed some episodes) clearly wants to focus increasingly on Allison's personal and home life. That's a mixed blessing. Although Medium still has its share of violence and shocking moments, it has become a little more tame, as frequent scenes between squabbling daughters Ariel (Sofia Vassilieva) and Bridgette (Maria Lark), while mostly credible, tend to undermine its dramatic effect. On the other hand, the struggles of Joe DuBois (Jake Weber), Allison's husband, to hold it together when the demands of her gig or the sheer weirdness of what's in her head threaten to take over are very well done; he's become an increasingly important character, there to ground her when her emotions and her visions intertwine and conflict. Best of all are episodes in which Allison's family and work are both in play, like "Judge, Jury & Executioner," in which Joe serves as a juror on a case in which Allison is involved, or "Doctor's Orders," which finds Ariel pursued by the ghost of a serial killer from the previous season.

Of course, any TV show helmed by Caron (who created both the popular Moonlighting and the underrated Now and Again) will have its share of inspired ideas and eccentric touches (not to mention guest stars like David Carradine and co-executive producer Kelsey Grammer). Thus we have an "origin" episode ("Sweet Dreams"), a story in which Allison's dream sequence lasts for the entire first act ("Time Out of Mind"), and another ("Knowing Her") offering insight into Det. Scanlon's (David Cubitt) past. In "The Song Remains the Same" Allison is bedeviled by Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive," which she literally can't get out of head; after five or six non-stop, high volume minutes, you'll never want to hear it again. And while "Still Life 3-D" is a pretty cool idea, let's face it: those cardboard 3-D glasses (two pairs come in the box set) are still hokey as all get out. Generous bonus features include commentary on select episodes, a mini-doc about the making of Season Two, and considerably more. --Sam Graham

Format: DVD
This is "Medium" --- The Complete Second Season, featuring 22 episodes of this amazing NBC series with performances by Emmy-award winning Patricia Arquette.

This DVD includes some excellent bonus features. The bonus features are as follows:

Commentaries --- For several episodes, featuring both crew and cast. These commentaries are insightful and entertaining and will definitely help you to understand certain aspects of the show better. It's too bad they couldn't do commentary for "Death Takes a Holiday" and "Twice Upon a Time," but I suspect they were still wrapping work on those eps while this DVD set was being created.

The Story of "Medium" Season 2 - Highlights of the season from beginning to end. Discusses how things changed between season one and two, some of the highest-quality episodes, and more.

"Medium" in Another Dimension --- Discusses the 3-D episode of the show, "Still Life." This is pretty interesting and has some insightful thoughts, but a lot of it is already covered in the commentary for that episode.

A Day in the Life of the Dubois Daughters --- Discusses the actresses that play the daughters of the show, as well as the characters themselves. Includes their school studies, how they prepare for the show and anecdotes and praise from other cast and crew.

The Museum of Television and Radio - Q&A with Cast and Creative Team --- Discusses the writing process for the show.

Gag Reel --- A fun gag reel, including mess-ups as well as joke scenes.

If you're a fan of "Medium," or any good drama or science-fiction series, you can't afford to pass this up.

Just to let you know that Medium's got a lot of success in France too. Season 1 and season 2 have been broadcasted altogether from November 2005 to July 2006 with very good audience rate.

The main reasons for this success are pretty much the same everywhere I guess: very good cast lead by the unique Patricia Arquette who can make you laugh and cry from one minute to the other, supernatural atmosphere, suspense and of course, this more than real family life that makes you feel like you're spying on your neighbors apart from the fact that this family is far better than your neighbors, they're funny, loving and moving just like we wish we could all be.

Now I'm just looking forward to discover season 3!!!

Format: DVD
Much better than most of today's contemporary TV programs, this series has depth of character and it does not lose momentum through the first season.

The first DVD contains the conclusion to the cliffhangers from the first season. Some of the characters in the pilot to make it into the regular episodes. This package even has a fun though maybe distracting to some 3-D. I got out my glasses and ooohd and aaahd.

Great formula as Allison Dubois (Patricia Arquette) who has a gift since childhood of talking to the dead and getting physique vibes. She diagnoses or misdiagnoses crime scenes for a local district attorneys office. As her child puts it she is a "guesser." Natural they are the skeptics with negative attitudes to overcome and obscure mental images to be interpreted. She must also do this while balancing housework, kids, and a husband that can be snot at times. There is usually a quirky twist in the end of each episode.

Bottom line is that you can get hooked on the series and will feel cheated when you run out of episodes. It is interesting that they spread the abilities around in the family instead of keeping just to Allison.

I purchase Medium because I was curious. I fall asleep too early to see the series on TV. I started watching and I couldn't stop. While based on an actual Medium I am sure the writters have a great time with the subject but it has a hint of realism. My daughter a grandson agreed to watch the first disk and ended up staying up until the wee morning hours. Beware... it is very addictive.

Format: DVD
Emmy winner Patricia Arquette returns in the second season of Medium. For everyone who enjoyed season 1 and has yet to see season 2, be prepared to love the show even more. This seasons blows the first out of the water.

I thought I would give a detailed episode by episdoe score. 1-10 with 10 being the best, and while it doesn't look like I gave out high scores all that often, a high score from me is like a 8 because I'm pretty stingy. The eps that scored lower generally didn't involve Arquette as much.

"When push comes to shove Part 2" 5

"The song remains the same" 8

"Time out of mind" 8.5

"Light sleeper" 6

"Sweet dreams" 7

"Dead aim" 6.5

"Judge, Jury and Executioner" 7

"Too close to call" 7

"Still life 3d" 7.5

"The reckoning" 8

"Method to his madness" 8.5

"Doctors orders" 8

"Raising Cain" 8

"A changed man" 6

"Sweet child of mine" 8.5

"Allison Wonderland" 8

"Lucky in love" 7

"SOS" 8

"Knowing her" 5.5

"The darkness is light enough" 6.5

"Death takes a policy" 8

"Twice upon a time" 9

I thought this was a fantastic season. I loved season one as well, but this was even better. Patricia Arquette is so underrated despite her controversial (I dont think it was) Emmy win last year. The show is nothing without her. The episodes I gave high scores to she gives great performances in.

Every scene with Arquette and Jake Weber is a joy to watch, and I think her children are some of the best child actors I've ever seen. This season has a 3D episode and the box set comes with 3D glasses.
