Product Description

Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) has a gift - she can communicate with earthbound spirits or ghosts who cling to the living because they have unfinished business in our world preventing them from "crossing over" or going into the light. Inspired in part by the work of famed medium James Van Praagh and of Mary Ann Winkowski, a real-life communicator with earth bound spirits, GHOST WHISPERER explores the spiritual side of life and death. Melinda navigates between the dead and the living with her sometimes chilling, sometimes heart-rending and sometimes amusing actions as an intermediary between the ghosts and those they haunt. Although she is very good at being an intermediary she never publicizes this gift instead is known around town as a newlywed and the owner of the successful antiques store, Same As it Never Was.

Firefighter Jim Clancy (David Conrad), Melinda's husband, knows that being an intermediary between the living and dead can take an emotional toll on his wife and worries that he might not be able to protect her as well as he would like. Melinda has also recently revealed her gift to new friend and employee, Delia Banks (Camryn Manheim), a single mom of teenager Ned Banks (Christoph Sanders). Melinda fears what the consequences might be of drawing Delia into this unconventional world, as Delia, unlike her son Ned, is a bit skeptical of Melinda's gift - although she loves Melinda unconditionally as a friend. Melinda has also shared her secret with Eli James (Jamie Kennedy), a psychology professor at Rockland University, who is a unique individual - he has the gift of hearing ghosts, but not seeing them. For her part, Melinda accepts her unique abilities as a blessing and sometime curse, but always helps her clients, alive or dead, find emotional closure. Currently in its fourth season, Ghost Whisperer plunges into new territory by literally rocking the foundations of the series with a new mythology - Love Transcends Death.

Ghost Whisperer: The Final Season--or, The Mystery of the Haunted Hospital! The fifth and final season of Jennifer Love Hewitt's cult show leaps five years into the future, where her son Aiden (Connor Gibbs) is already conversing with ghosts and her husband Jim (David Conrad) has become a doctor. This latter development gives Melinda plenty of reasons to hang out at Rockland Hospital, which oozes with ghosts and becomes the central battleground for a new layer of Ghost Whisperer's mythology: just as Melinda can see ghosts that most people can't, Aiden can see supernatural beings called "shinies" and "shadows" that even ghosts can't see. The malevolent desires of the shadows drive much of the action over the season's 22 episodes.

Plenty of episodes aren't centered on the hospital: a paranoid entrepreneur whose security system detects a ghost; marital strife between two real estate agents that continues after death; a clairvoyant comic-book artist; a ghost/clown/detective; and family secrets that threaten to ruin a romance between Melinda's friend Eli (Jamie Kennedy) and a childhood sweetheart. But the hospital proves an effective theater for creepy doings because, let's face it, hospitals--with their sterile environments and bloody surgeries, rife with life-and-death stakes and basic human vulnerability--are creepy. Though the conflict between shinies and shadows resolves fairly flimsily in the final episode, the show does an excellent job of building it up over the course of the season--as is so often the case, clues and hints are much more tantalizing than discovering what actually lies underneath it all. The extra features of Ghost Whisperer: The Final Season are middling--the featurettes and webisodes are a step up from the previous season, but the interactive games are still dopey. But the season itself is strong and sure to satisfy the series' fans. --Bret Fetzer

I know this hasn't come out yet (I'm sure it will be as bittersweet as any other end of a series DVD), but I just wanted to prelude its release with a plea to other fans of this show. Maybe if we buy the DVD's right away it will show CBS that they made a HUGE mistake. If sales were through the roof maybe they would realize their mistake and try to pick it up again. This happened when they cancelled Angel, only everyone involved had moved on to permanent jobs already (Bones, Supernatural). Jennifer Love is just doing small movies and guest spots right now, the writers are developing new projects, but maybe it's not too late. This just sucks. Why are network people so stupid? If you go buy the numbers and not by the fan output and desire you are not really seeing the true popularity of a show. How many people have a Nielsen box anymore? This crap that they pull is the reason why I watch the shows on DVD instead of TV. But I'm Canadian so it's not like my ratings count anyway.
Shuffling the time slots every few months, changing days to see if it will go up against another network's most popular show, showing re-runs for 3 or 4 weeks every few new episodes.... Just stand behind your show and leave it alone and you'd really see how popular it is you business school morons. I don't think we'll ever see a network hold onto a show for 10 years again... gone are the days when a show like Friends or Seinfeld can fluctuate in ratings but still stay until THEY want to leave. I miss the days when TV didn't disappoint me on a daily basis. We're really not all as stupid as you think we are Hollywood, we're getting tired of your crappy movies, re-makes of EVERYTHING that has ever made money in the past and your cheap reality TV shows. Just tell me Medium isn't next!

Rant over.

Every Season only get's better on Ghost Whisperer and Season #5 is no different. Jennifer Love Hewitt shines as Melinda Gordon. Her family complete with the birth of Jim (David Conrad) and Melinda's first child Aiden Lucas Clancy. We jump 5 years ahead to Aiden's 5th Birthday. Guessing the Producers went that way in case the show was canceled by CBS and we'd never know about Aiden's Gift/Powers. Good move since that is exactly what happen. CBS dropped it. Huge Mistake and ABC passed on picking it. Another Huge mistake since the show has a very large and strong fan base. Maybe the Jennifer Love Hewitt, who is one of the Producers could get the rest of the Producers to continue the show on DVD or even as a Online TV Show.

Ghost Whisperer should NOT be sent into the Light!

The first time I saw Ghost Whisperer on TV I was HOOKED! The story lines behind the series episodes continue to fascinate and intrigue me. These story lines lead to the next installment in such a subtle yet powerful way that I can hardly stand the wait until the next episode.

Jennifer Love Hewitt is the perfect acting match for anyone having the ability to communicate with the Spirits...think me crazy, but I believe there ARE people out there who do exactly what she does. I had an out of body experience when I was 5 years old. I was very sick with a fever of 105.6 (according to my parents) and I truly believe I died for a short time. I could clearly see my body laying in the bed as I looked down on it from high above. I witnessed my mother rushing my body to the tub and pouring ice over it until I returned to it. That memory is burned into my mind like it happened yesterday.

As members of my family have passed on over the years, I have always felt a calm, very serene presence in the minutes, hours and up to a few days after their deaths that has made me a true believer of "The Light" and an afterlife. And because of "The Ghost Whisperer" I'm not the least bit afraid of death and am actually looking forward to it.

In my humble opinion, every episode has an extrememly emotional cleansing effect that I carry with me for days, weeks, months at a time...some are more powerful than others.

I want to own every single episode of this one.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SHOW. I OWN EVERY SINGLE SEASON. CBS IS MAKING THE WORST MISTAKE! GHOST WHISPERER NEEDS TO STAY ALIVE AND KEEP PRODUCING. MELINDA GORDON AND SAM/JIM NEED TO HAVE A DAUGHTER IN THE 6TH OR 7TH SEASON AND KEEP THE SHOW GOING. THIS SHOW IS THE BEST! I CAN RE-WATCH EVERY SINGLE SHOW AND STILL GET ALL PUMPED UP AND EXCITED FOR WHAT IS COMING NEXT.

I was really enjoying this series and then it went...nutty. This season was like watching Angel and Medium have a love child. Add in the creep-tastic child that had no expression and couldn't act with the way off the wall crazy themes and I was definitely glad this was the last season of the show. Such a shame to see it go out this way because it really had been such an amazing series.

Just a note on one episode in season 5. Episode number 4 "Do Over" may have been the best Ghost Whisperer episode and the series entire run. Despite having watched the series a few years back, I somehow missed that episode until now.

The strength is in the story and benefits from having some terrific actors playing the rolls of the haunted and their ghosts. Not only the the guest stars (including Mike Farrell) nail their roles, but even those actors outside the primary story line were perfect. "Awards" got to Bryan Batt, David Andrews and Farrell.

Jennifer Love Hewitt as usual has to play the link between the show's tragic, comic, dramatic and romantic scenes without losing grip on her own character. Despite all the moving pieces in this story she never puts a foot wrong, and Camryn Manheim also is successfully stretched in many different directions in her roll. Other cast regulars also nailed their parts, as usual.

Show creator John Gray gets the writing credit for one of the best one hour episodes of any TV show I've ever seen.
