5.0 out of 5 stars American Family, October 26, 2008

This review is from: Medium: Season 4 (DVD)
I'm so glad to have the fourth season of "Medium" on DVD. This has been my favorite show on TV for 4 years now. While I tried to watch each episode, I never saw "Car Trouble" during broadcast; so as Allison tried to catch a Hispanic killer, only to find he is a model who was on a poster completely engaged me. "Lady Killer" with Patricia Arquette's sister Rosanna Arquette starring as an author who writes a best seller about how older women can get guys turns into an exciting tracking of a serial killer. "Drowned World" that traces a story of a family's dysfunction as it is manifested into dreams of running water built with great unexpected turns. What Glenn Gordon Caron calls "story arcs," stories that span a number of episodes, brings Angelica Huston as Cynthia Keener, the representative of an organization Ameritips that try to find lost children. Huston's character builds until her final climactic episodes of "Wicked Games." The season had a tremendous setup from the previous season as both Joe Dubois and Allison find themselves out of work. Their struggle with family bills, trying to find ways to say no to the children who want money for special things, and having to ask for help from Joe's mother all give this show the duality of the fantastic element of the paranormal and the everyday life of an American family trying to make ends meet. Joe & Allison's love for each other shines well, particularly in the episodes where Allison gets jealous of Kelly Preston's character who plays Joe's boss on several episodes. The packaging on the box is excellent. I particularly appreciate watching the shows without commercial breaks. While shorter than previous seasons, Season 4 is a welcome addition that will come out from time to time for return engagements on my DVD. Enjoy!
